Gretchen Rossi Reveals Her Top Guilty Pleasure

And the winner is ...

By Lauren Metz

Cheers to that, Gretchen Rossi! "Alcohol will always be on my list," the Orange County Housewife, who was named No. 25 on Celebuzz's 101 Hot Bodies list, reveals to the site about her shameful loves.  "I'm really more of a social drinker and have a cocktail when I'm out on the town on a Friday or Saturday night with friends."

Of course, she's been known to indulge her sweet tooth now and then as well. "If I feel like having a bite of dessert when I'm out, I will. I won't do much more than that, because that's when you end up eating the entire dessert."

And, as Gretch points out, diets (like Alexis?) are not her friend. "Anytime I've ever tried to diet in my life, it's been a disaster, so it's really about maintaining a healthy lifestyle," Slade's longtime love admits and credits overcoming an eating disorder as her greatest achievement in the fit and happy department.

"I was bulimic, and it took me a really long time to get over that. To be honest, I don't think you ever really get over something like that. I think it's always kind of back there haunting you, but I finally learned to be healthy and confident and secure in my own skin," the blonde beauty says. "It wasn't until five years ago that I finally got to that place and stopped comparing myself to tall, skinny models. I'm 5'5″, and I'm never going to have long, skinny legs. I'm more of an athletic build, and I really learned to appreciate my own body and to be thankful that God blessed me with my proportions."
