Does Gretchen Regret Excluding 'Wives From Engagement Party?

The RHOC star responds to the 'Wives comments she did it all for show.

By Megan Johnson

Gretchen Rossi may have gotten a lot of slack—she staged her engagement! Those aren't real tears!—but the Real Housewives of Orange County star is solid on one thing: not inviting the rest of the 'Wives to her engagement party was the right choice.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

When a Twitter fan mentioned to Gretchen that she made the right choice, she made it clear she's happy with her decision. (The engagement party happened before the 'Wives suggested she staged it for the cameras.)

Engagement for TV

"Everyone's reaction to the engagement is living proof you made the right decision not to invite them," @Lisne wrote about the controversial engagement.

"Unfortunately I have to agree," Gretchen responded.



In a recent blog post, Heather Dubrow said she was "sad" that her and husband Terry were not invited to the festivities, but she did add that she and her husband took Gretchen and Slade out for dinner—and even bought them an engagement gift.
