Gretchen Rossi

Gretchen wonders why her friendship with Alexis is questioned and thanks the fans for their support.

on Apr 11, 20120

Now to this week's episode:

Heather saying it's never good for a friendship to talk about one's mate seems absolutely true! However how does one let a friend know if they have concerns about the person they are dating without hurting their feelings? What responsibility do we have as friends to point out some red flags? I have loving wonderful friends that have done that for me in the past, and I am grateful they did. I think it's all in the delivery.

When I see Brooks eating with Vicki it made me extremely weary watching him ask Vicki about all her assets and what she is walking away with. Something just seemed off to me about that. Again, was it in the delivery? I really like Brooks and he has been nothing but sweet to me, but I have to agree with Tamra that something is just a little too perfect with everything he says and does. I've had those kinds of people come in my life when I was the most vulnerable, and it is scary how someone can take advantage of you when you are in a weak place. It concerned me with Brooks and later on this season you will see me address my concerns face-to-face. . .

Speaking of Brooks and Vicki I would not be human if I didn't point out how unbelievable it was to me that Vicki said "Brooks is a consultant and can make his own hours." Isn't that exactly how I explained what Slade's job was? Once again how is it OK when it's Brooks but, when it's Slade he is a dead-beat and needs to get a job? And for the record Slade does have a flipping job for the nine hundred millionth time! So please ladies stop making false statements about that. For goodness sakes, I guess we have to show them his paystubs every month for them to believe it!

Alexis doing her segment for Fox Five as super hard to watch. Yikes! I was actually a little uncomfortable for her and wanted her to be doing better, but I also know how nerve-racking it can be to do anything new. I actually came over and watched some of the segment with her and gave her the advice to go to a hosting coach to help craft that skill better. Live TV is hard no matter what way you slice it! You have to give her kudos for just going for it! However leave it to Alexis to make me laugh out loud when she said she "I'm using both brains." I didn't even know we had two brains.

Gretchen! You have mentioned several times that you don't understand how Vicki can be so critical and judgemental, etc. I think its her own insecurities, her value and her identity lie in what she can accomplish, and how much money, nice things, etc. she has. Maybe she has never had anyone in her life affirm her for who she is, and not what she does or has. She has be perfect to feel like she has any worth, so of course she has to be right all the time. This is the standard she is trying to live up to every day, it is only natural that she applies this standard to everyone else. It's like a big anchor around her neck, and the stress is killing her.

She is a bully, but it's because she has a lot of wounds in her life that she has hung onto and nursed. Hurt people hurt people. So if you can try to understand the Why of someone's behaviour, you will understand the How. So when you look at Vicki, instead of seeing a mean bully, you will see someone who has a lot of hurts and never learned how to deal with them in a healthy way. Set up your boundaries about how you expect to be treated, and then calmly but firmly hold your ground. Onward and upward!

Gretchen! It's really refreshing to see you and Tamara working things out and trying to get along. Don't listen to all the negativity about Tamara's motives, you have a good head on your shoulders and you will figure what is true and what is not. It is quite possible that Tamara is turning over a new leaf for real; it seems like Eddie is a good infulence on her. The biggest obstacles to your's and Tamara's friendship is that both Vicki and Alexis are so jealous.

Anger, resent, bitterness, and unforgiveness are all detrimental to a person's health and well-being. Forgiving someone doesn't mean that what they did was okay, it means that you are letting go of all those cancerous feelings so you can move on and have peace in your life. Without peace you can't have joy. Speaking of joy....you have a beautiful smile and a great laugh :)

as im in the uk we havent got season 7 yet so im reading the blogs!! i have always liked gretchen, i started watching around the time jeff was ill, and the way the other housewives treated you and the remarks were sickening to be honest. it was just nasty. and you had to be a strong person to get over that, and the comments about slade and his kids, at the end of the day you know slade and how you feel, and you owe no one answers, you've came a long way and held your head up high, and good to see that your emotional stronger. there is a saying, "when writing the story of your life, dont let anyone else hold the pen" be happy and be your self!!!!

Gretchen, There are two commentators who wrote something that has been on my mind ever since seeing the raprochement on the show between Tamra and you. I don't like the peace treaty and I'm worried about you. Curly 1 said, "Stop worrying about anything Vicki related--she isn't worth it! As far as Tamra, she has befriended you for self-serving purposes. My hunch is that she is nervous about her "bully" label and she doesn't want to get fired like some of the RHONY women--she needs this gig!! Keep your distance from her--she doesn't deserve you as a friend." Good point!!! Didn't think of the firing thing myself but so true ... Gretchen, Tamra is not to be trusted. I think in addition to Curly's take that perhaps Tamra realizes that Vicky is on her way out (not liked by majority of the viewers and probably won't be renewed much longer) and she needs to find a castmate to befriend so that there is someone who wants to film with her next season! If only Heather can stand her ... she's in deep doodoo. Smart conniving cookie that Tamra is, she knows that you and Heather are the future of the show and has weasled her way into your good graces. It's sickening to watch you being gracious to and laughing with her - do yo not remember what she's done to you? You don't need her - SHE NEEDS YOU! She's a malignant cancer - don't let her take you down to her level because you can't raise her up (as Simon discovered), she drags you down. I know she's fun and funny (her humor is her only saving grace) but be warned and be very careful. The minute she doesn't need you anymore or someone more "useful" comes along, she'll bounce you to the curb so fast it will curl your extensions! Then Alycat9705 had this to say, "I believe you're so freaking thrilled to NOT be in her line of fire this season that you're overlooking a lot. She insulted your dear friend right in front of you and you didn't say a word . She insults your boyfriend (not to your face, of course) and you don't say a word. She's hated you for years and treated you cruelly, spread false rumors that damaged you and your loved ones, but now you're close friends with her?" I would be THRILLED not to be in Tamra's line of fire too, so believe me I get it. She is such a nasty piece of trailer park work that the relief you feel is actually palpable THROUGH the tv screen! But don't let her "in" and trust her ... unless all these seasons of animus between you two have been just a storyline and not "real," you will pay dearly for your naivete with Tamra. She will make you regret your kindness and she won't even look back for a second after she does. Word to the wise.

goodbye

I think you are so kind and wise about these women that I know if it weren't for the show you would wash your hands of them. You are 100% correct about Vicki - I have watched this show from the beginning and I am so sick of her and Mean Girl Tamra that I have decided I am done with this show. Good luck to you and once you stay clear of these "women" you will blossom and have calm and peace in your life. Be well.

You are my favorite Gretchen...stay the real person that you are! Not sure why everyone is so quick to judge your relationship when they see all of minutes of your life (edited too) Do what makes you HAPPY! That is what it's all about!!! Love your bedroom by the way! (you and Slade making the bed, thought I should clarify!!! Lol) You have the cutest, cozy house!

I like u alot this season however i truely am over hearing u go on and on about what Vicki has done to u. We've already seen it several times and if u keep doing it then u are no better then the way she treated u. Im not saying go be best friends with her just stop talking about her in every blog u do the tit or tat thing is making me not want to read this anymore. Hopefully we can see more of the nice Gretchen that raises above all the cattiness!

Gretchen, I don't think the issues I have with you is Slade child support issue. I think what disappoints me is that out of all the women, you are the one that does tend to have logical thinking. I agreed with the way you handled your drunk friend that clearly was trying to start trouble with Vicki. I too have 1 GOOD friend in Orange County that has my back and is a TRUE friend to me. She is honest with me and tells me when she disagrees with me. However, she would NEVER approach someone else that upset me. SHe would allow me to fight or resolve my own issues with someone. I don't like gossip or drama and I do stay out of that in my life daily. As far as Slade child support issues. The way I see it, that is for the courts to deal with, not anyone else. IF it bothers you and Slade so much about everyone putting him down about him not working and so on.. Then maybe you or Slade should talk about what he does for a living and how often he does work to shut everyone up. Otherwise, it will continue by others. I did point out to my husband (who watches the show with me) that we did think that Slade was being the bigger/better person when he helped Vicki up when she fell at the bowling alley. Its to bad that Vicki can't let it go and be RESPECTFUL to you and Slade. She does tend to be self centered and doesn't take the time to look at herself and her actions. Which I do daily. I also like that Slade defended Heather to your drunk friend. So it appears that he is trying to STAY OUT of the drama, like Eddie tends to do. I have to say I like that Slade better than I liked the Slade that did the stand up comedy about the women. I didn't feel that was necessary. That isn't the way to get back at them. Kill them with kindness. The viewers will see who really is the problem and who is the one being respectful to all. I haven't seen Eddie say anything bad about others, OR get involved in the drama. I hope that continues. If anything he is going to get TIRED of hearing about the drama from Tamara. Hopefully Eddie gets tired of hearing it and it causes Tamara to stop or cut back on how much she does. I hope that happens with you 2. I hope Slade doesn't get caught up on it and continue it. Let Vicki look like the trouble maker. IF she crosses a line, let Slade defend himself. Sometimes not fighting back, just works better. I lived in Orange County majority of my life. I moved out of state 6 years ago. My husband and I plan to move back in a few years. If you ever met us, you would see what it was like to have a TRUE friendship without drama. We are good friends to others. Unfortunately, it appears that all of you on the show pick your friends based on status. What we see on this show is exactly what you get when you pick friends by status. I feel my husband and I have a happier life living a simple life and accept people for who the are and don't judge them. I have to say that I am slowly starting to lean toward supporting you. I just hope that I see more positive out of both you and Slade. That fight with Vicki was not necessary. It made you look at bad as her. Let her destroy her own image. I too have concerns of Brooks inquiring about Vicki assets. That is a red flag to me. Being a sucessful business woman, it surprised me that she answered his questions. I look forward to watching the remainder of the shows. I have to admit. I watch this show to keep myself in check, to never treat others, like some of you women treat each other. When it comes to Alexis, I have nothing good to say about her, so I won't. I just don't think that is a healthy friendship for you. You may want to really decide if its something you should continue to pursue. Take care

Gretchen,

I love how you say "Financial situations have nothing to do with happiness" I came from a very wealthy family and after my divorce from a very abusive man, I actually ran into my first love from the sixth grade! He is actually the reason my parents shipped me off to boarding school in High School because they feared he would "rub off on me" he grew up very poor and thats what was judged, not WHO he is.

We have been married 12 years now with two children and I couldn't be happier, we aren't wealthy, but he would die for me, and me for him, he is my best friend, and that is what MATTERS! My family absolutely adores him, and the only people that have anything to say are those that are envious of the relationship and are no longer in our lives, so keep your head up and follow your heart the way you have been, because what the two of you mean to eachother is ALL that matters!

You also have to consider the source of these judgments too. People who are miserable, want you to be miserable as well, so when their "love tanks" aren't full, they want you in the same boat! Thats all it is! It has ZERO to do with them looking out for your "well being!!" Envy is a terrible thing, but its the world we live in.... You have to stay away from the energy suckers and kepp truckin' along and take the world by storm! You're doing GREAT! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

Alexis, on the other hand, honestly I dont like to speak ill of other people especially others I do not know personally, but from what I am shown, she is as pretentious as they come, she seems to REALLY enjoy that camera on her and it seems that when it might be on someone else more, she gets jealous and finds ways to bring it back to her! She does not seem like a friend to me, because friends do not "keep track" of what they do for you and then tally it up so that when its time to collect they can collect it from you! You deserve better! Just my opinion though, I'm just an outsider looking in, and it looks to me that you are truly loyal to those you care about and she is a "what have you done for me lately" kind of person. You're a great girl, I have always liked you and you continue to impress me!!

Gretchen, I think your great. You'r funny and beautiful and will always have haters for those reasons alone. As far as Slade is concerned, who gives a damn what other people think or say about your relationship. As long as you are happy that's all that matters. Keep doing what your doing honey cause your good at it!!!!!

Gretchen I love you! I think you are so naturally beautiful. I think you are honest and humble which you do not see too much of on TRH of anyplace. You are beyond sexy, who cares what your voice sounds like, I can't wait to see your Pussycat performance. Tamara's the real deal stick with her. You really could do so much better and Slade knows that. And do yourself a favor, stay away from Heather. She's a wolf in sheepskin clothing...

Gretchen you are a cool person, but a word of advice dear, stop hanging out with crazy people. Alexis and Sarah are not worth your time or energy. Alexis is unhappy within her life but tried desperately to act as if she isn't. Sarah is crazy as heck and you need to run as fast as you can away from her! Read her blog she was talking about people after crashing their party. And you and Slade, poor babies, you guys were trying to help her, but you can't help crazy! She needs a real counselor to help her out. But, seriously I hope you and Vicki talk things our calmly because I didn't like seeing you step off your square yelling at her. I don't think her problem is with you it's with Slade and like you always say take it up with him not you and you are right in saying that. Good luck to you!

Stop worrying about anything Vicki related--she isn't worth it! As far as Tamra, she has befriended you for self-serving purposes. My hunch is that she is nervous about her "bully" label and she doesn't want to get fired like some of the RHONY women--she needs this gig!! Keep your distance from her--she doesn't deserve you as a friend.

Don't listen to people telling you to talk to Vicki and make up with her-she is who she is and that's not going to change. You can't fix her so don't even try. Stay true to who you are-do what you need to do and ignore everyone who doesn't mean you well. When Jeff was on the show with you, you were labeled a gold digger. Now everyone has a problem because Slade's financial situation has changed, and everyone has something to say about that. See you can't please everybody, so live your life and don't even try.

Gretchen, I just want to start off by saying, you are my new favorite housewife!! You were actually my least favorite before..I think maybe bc of the way they portayed you in your 1st couple of seasons. But anyway, now I think we're seeing the REAL you, and the real you is amazing! I also REALLY love that you and Tamra are friends..finally!! I think that you guys are more alike than any of the other housewives, and I think it will be a lasting friendship! I also agree w/u about how ppl judge Slade so harshly when they only see him for 5mins max per episode! And u are absolutely right--finances are NOT the key to happiness! I can tell you guys are happy together from what I've seen! Actually, u & Slade remind me ALOT of my marriage &ppl are always saying the same things to me! It's soo annoying bc the ppl that say it, are the ones who don't take time to get to know him! Keep being YOU girl!! PS: your make-up always looks PERFECT, I think I'm gonna order me some GCB!!

Gretchen, You are great on the show. Vicki isn't one of my favorites, however, your friend Sarah approached Vicki aggressively. Vicki held her ground and didn't engage in your friend's drama. I admire Vicki for that. I also admire that you too, were trying to defuse your friend, but I think Sarah was just looking for a fight. Vicki did say she was appreciative of the fact that you stood up for her to Sarah in trying to defuse the situation. I think you should acknowledge that Vicki isn't all bad. I also admire you for trying to understand VIcki's side of that situation and trying to explain it to Sarah. You are a class act.

Hmm sounds like dear sweet Alexis is doing to you what she did to Peggy.

Why jealousy may be the main factor, you have advanced her as far as you can time for her to move on to someone elses coattail to ride. Look out Vickie could be you

I am really enjoying seeing you and Tamra actually have a friendship. It is refreshing. I always found you both funny and likable. And for these sorts of reality shows, it's actually a really new and different storyline to see two people act grown up and take the high road. Yay for forgiveness! That being said, I think Alexis (the "Christian") is not happy about this forgiveness and is jealous and self consumed. Oh well, it's really no big loss to you. She is a terrible human being. Back during the Tamra feud, I always sided with Tamra just because you had aligned with Alexis who clearly has no brains and shoddy morals.

I KNEW IT!! When Vicky made that comment about Brooks being a consultant, she did a sideways glance and looked guilty saying it. I had a feeling that this what how you had described Slade's job and Vicky didn't accept that as "real" employment when she constatnly critisized him for not having a job! She is a the definition of a hypracrit!

And to respond to one of the comments above...suggesting that Alexis get host training after watching her awful interview WAS being a supportive friend and an attempt to empower her to do better. Thats totally different from Vicky's negative comments to the other ladies about their business ventures. Vicky was clearly segregating herself as the successful business woman from women she precieved as stupid housewives that have no business sense at all.

Gretchen, You are so fun. I love you and Slade together. Can't a man have a hard couple of years financially in these difficult times without everyone turning their noses up? Good for you for recognizing love when it comes your way. I don't think he is a deadbeat, I think he is trying. It is probably exhausting for you to fight with Vicki like you do but it really is funny to watch Vicki be SO hypocritical sometimes. I love that you forgave Tamara. She was wrong, but even good people are wrong. It seems like she wanted to make amends as much as you did. Enjoy your life! Thanks for sharing it with us.

If you can see through the BS, then why are you friends with Tamra? Yes, you're intelligent Gretchen, however I think in this situation you're not. I believe you're so freaking thrilled to NOT be in her line of fire this season that you're overlooking a lot. She insulted your (supposed) best friend right in front of you and you didn't say a word . She insults your boyfriend (not to your face, of course) and you don't say a word. She's hated you for years and treated you cruelly, spread false rumors that damaged you and your loved ones, but now you're close friends with her? If THAT's not BS, then I don't know what is!

Team Gretchen!! Regarding Alexis I think her feelings are hurt. I think no matter what your intent was what usually wins out is perception. Alexis was your friend in prior seasons so don't be so quick to write her off. My opinion is to be cautious with Tamra. That lady is special. Regarding Slade, it really has nothing do with us, you do what makes you happy.

As completely out of line as your friend Sarah was, I still think about how she was doing it for you, and then you say you want to keep out of the drama. I feel like you could dump all your old friends because they don't fit in this snooty crowd. If Heather made the "screening Gretchen's friends" comment about MY best friend, who made a complete ass out of herself because she had MY back, I'd be defending her to Heather.

Aren't you being a hypocrite critizing Alexis' Fox interview and in the same blog complaining that Vicki always speaks poorly of all the "girls" business ventures!

In the end, it is no ones business regarding your relationship with Slade. If he makes you happy, that is what is important. As far as Vicki goes, she has revealed herself long ago, and the picture is not too pretty. She is so annoying, shaking that head and pursing those lips...I truly wish she would be retired or fired like Jill Zarin. They are two peas in a pod. Vicki is only about herself and what she has accomplished...big deal. There are far greater succcessful women in this world than her. She is more like a begger...touting her business with the viewers begging her to stop. You keep being you.

Gretchen, love you on the show.

Vicki is a hypocrite, she HAS been since season 1. She will turn on her friends so quickly (Jeana for example) and have no regrets. The woman is ruthless. Stop wasting time on her!! I will say in her defense, your friend Sarah WAS crazy and I think Vicki handled herself well. Sarah was crazy that night, I hope she's not like that all the time. Yikes. Especially after you told her you didn't want drama. Some of us are going to wonder if she's using you for the spotlight. . . I did not care for her behavior at all.

I have to give you and Slade credit for how you handled Champs bowling. It would've been very easy for you to run to Sarah's protection and assume the worst about Vicki. Your minds were open enough to see that Vicki was minding her own business and Sarah was the aggressor.

However, the next time you bring a friend to someone else's party, make sure that friend has read an etiquette book at least once in his/her life. Her treatment of the party's host was embarrassing (for you). An outsider attaching herself to someone else's invitation should draw as little attention to herself as possible.

Sherry

I can see that your parents brought you up with good standards. Slade seems like a good person. If you continue to keep your cool and treat others as you wish to be treated...well, I can't see the judgement being made towards you. All in all, I think that Vicki will look the worse for her thoughts in your direction. Your friend Sarah really did not come across well and hopefully has seen enough of how she acted or over reacted. I can see that she cares for you, but she wasn't doing you any favors with her actions. Hope to see more & more grace and class come from you in the episodes ahead. So far, you are the one that I think has the most heart...

Gretchen - Your singing was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. You have more guts than I do, girl! I admire your courage. Let's face it; you put it all out there where most people would run and hide. You have always been my favorite! And how weird is it that Alexis was so upset with you for not coming right away when you'd tried to all along? So strange! I'd be shaking my head too if I were you.

Gretchen you are my favorite OC housewife. You are a smart and intelligent woman and... you have the right to choose who you love and spend your life with. A fat bank account does not equate to happiness! But I've lived in the Orange and still in Cali and know how vain people can be. I think you and Slade are a cute couple.

texasviewer

Gretchen, I do think Vicki is overbearing and rude at times but in her defense, if drunky the clown Sarah would have approached me the way she did Vicki I would not have carried on a conversation with her either. You and Sarah had been over there talking about Vicki (Vicki did not talk about you with Heather in case you didn't notice) and then out of no where CRAZY tells her she needs to have a conversation with her. I would have dismissed Sarah too. I think you are a beautiful girl but you need to let go of your hatred for Vicki.. it's ugly. I don't see how you can be new BFF's with Tamra when she treated you worse then Vicki ever did. I've noticed that when you say you have gotten over something or you forgive someone you still harbor a lot of resentment towards that person. Life is too short for that and you know the truth. If Slade is the stand up guy you say he is then who cares what others say. He makes you happy, you make him happy so stop letting others mess with that. If they know if bothers you then they will keep doing it so don't let them bother you.

You want Vicki to show concern about you and Slade? Did you show any concern about Vicki when she was in the hospital w/ internal bleeding? You set the standard so you need to live with it.

Gretchen I love you and I've been reading people's hate comments and seriously they are insane! Be a better friend to Alexis? I would love to know what you are doing to her thats so terrible. I mean it's plastic surgery. It's not like Alexis had cancer or was going to die. I mean she has serious issues and the fact that you eventually showed up and tried calling her that's saying something.

As for vickie..she nutso in the head and you just need to not try and and be nice to her anymore. SHE doesn't deserve it.

You and heather are the only sane one on this show. It's sad that grown women actually act like this.

I love you gretchen!

Gretchen, Do not listen to the haters. You are beautiful, funny, and a great person housewives. Yes people think you can be bitchy or whatever but you know what? I honestly think you and heather are the most real people on this show. I'm so happy for you in your career and about the whole vickie thing..if I were you I would just not waste my time even commenting about her. She obviously has problems with you for some reason and there is nothing wrong with you. Even Tamra sees that! So she's just wacko up in the head! I only know what I see on the show but seriously I love ya anyways!

Gretchen, Your problems with Vicki will probably never end. As Briana told her (when they were on their way to the hospital) Vicki makes everything about herself. She won't ever change that way. You just can't win when it comes to showing your friendship with Tamera and Alexis! Alexis was unhappy that you waited two or three days to visit her and not the day of surgery. Fortunately for you, you visited Tamera before she even left her hospital bed. Then Tamera wasn't happy with Vicki for not visiting her right away like you had done! I think you all need to contact Cynthia (RHOA) and find out how to make up a "Friendship Contract" so you all know what's expected!

Good luck in the future! Slade has some good qualities but i was worried about him using you because ive been there before. You two are cute together.
