Rebounds with

Real Douchebag

3/19/2009 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Real Housewives of Orange County" gold digger Gretchen Rossi's fiance passed away in September from leukemia -- and now she's shacking up with former "RHOOC" non-wife Jo's douchey ex Slade Smiley. Say cheese!



The media whores sucked face while docked on a boat in Newport Harbor on Wednesday.

Bereavement is so overrated!

So What    

Bravo's Casting Guidelines that will likely exclude a come back for Ms. Waring.

Bravo.....

"We are looking for women who are “Housewives” in the present-day sense. They should be lively and energetic, with defined opinions and views. The women will have busy lives, involvement with the community, strong work ethic, an active social calendar and an enjoyment of the good life."

Self Confident?.....More surgery required.
Involved in the community?....A resounding, NO!
Defined opinions.....Negatively affected the Brady's!
Strong Work Ethic?...No longer required, landed bank role!
Lively and Energetic?....Only while shopping!
Active social life?.....Priority!
Family willing to share lives?....Joshua? Pawn!
Significant others? Peterson?....NO WAY! Still recovering!

Pizza, did you not qualify for the 5th time? You had your orange in hand and dressed to kill. I'm shocked!

I happen to like Gretchen- so what if she dated the old man for money and her being called a " gold-digger " this shouldn't bother anyone, seriously now. I think Gretchen "makes the show"- she's entertaining and fun to watch.
On another note* Tamara & Vicki are very spiteful witches not to mention Tamara looks like an old used hag & Vicki looks like a pig with a mighty high attitude. I really laughed my A$$ off when she fell at a pool party LOL woowoo!! I would be so embarrassed to be part of the Insurance Industry at Orange County- Vicki is an embarrassment.

The sad part about this show is- all these women have adult kids and young kids watching how their mothers act and portray themselves.
It's no-wonder Tamara's' son is a full time flunky and Vicki's' kids desperately wanting to get away from her. Anywho- I will be watching the new episodes & hoping TMZ will bring in " new blood ".

So What    

Hey #165 ---- How soon you forgot about all the trash scenes of Tamra's. Drunk out of her mind, grabbing her husbsands crotch, humping the dance floor and getting sexual with her own son. Yelling at her kids to shut up, almost completely naked and talking about her and Simons sex lives with toys to add to it. Nice job for when her kids see all that crap. So who is the trampiest? Don't throw stones at glass houses.

Laurie and George...now there is ANOTHER twosome who have no morals. Tamra probably tried uping her game to keep up with the two.

Gretchen is your typical D*Ck trap and that Slimy Slade is your Typical (Mitch)=Male B*Tch. Perfect reality show attention Wh*re's. Also check this out ......Paul Hillson, a neighbor of Rossi's, said Photoglou moved into her Costa Mesa house right after Beitzel died. He said it "certainly seemed that" the two were dating, and added that he would often see them "lovey dovey, holding hands."

"For her to deny that they were living together kind of shocked me," said Hillson, 38. He also noted that it appears that Smiley is currently living there.

All the other HOUSEWIVES let us see their faults-------Tamra and her father issues etc -Vicki's Obsessive work ethics, Jeana and Her husband and kid drama--Even Lynn and her daughters drinking drama and all the other filmed scenes of theirs that they are embarrassed from and would want to forget. And then you have Gretchen that PRETENDED to be someone she was NOT. If you are going to be on a show called REAL Housewives at least be REAL in the sense of being WHO you truly are. I don't care for perfect I just have NO RESPECT FOR LIARS and FAKES!!

Slade Smiley was the one who got Gretchen the gig on RHOOC! He has no money, but he does have connections that might help her. She's a gold digger (Jeff), a liar/cheater (Jay), and an opportunist (Slade). And paparazzi don't stroll the back bays of Newport Beach. Gretchen or Slade obviously called the paps for publicity. It's the new Speidi.

Do all of you OBSESSED Gretchen fans go to a class on how to respond to a comment about Gretchen?--> First thing you do is glide over what ever it is being said about Gretchen..-----> Then attack Tamra by calling Her trash and of course you always have to say She is JEALOUS. ---> Attack Vicki also by calling her a pig or just pick a random animal name.---> Then of course you have to say that Tamra and Vicki are the reason people are saying Gretchen is a Liar. Because they are involved in a smear campaign against Gretchen. ------> Respond by saying the article is a rumor.----------Say the picture is a fake. So on and so on. Can you see it??? LMAO LMAO LMAO LMAO LMAO

TAKEN FROM REALITY TEA--WAS POSTED TODAY MARCH 26TH - In the never ending drama of the OC housewives, Jeff’s ex wife and mother of his three children Sharon spoke out recently and cleared the air on the whole Gretchen issue. She posted this as a comment on our other blog. We were able to verify with 100% certainty that the comment was indeed written by Sharon. What she had to say is very interesting.

“My kids do NOT and NEVER have adored Gretchen….they know exactly what she’s about and what she’s up to and has been up to all along and their Dad knew it too. My daughter, Jill making any statement re. Gretchen explained that she simply doesn’t want anymore negative comments written about her Dad which is embarrassing and hurtful to her and her brother and sister. Jill appearing to defend Gretchen (slightly) is done only to quiet any negative statements made about her Dad period. Our three kids, Jennifer, Jill and Jake (Lizzy is not Jeff’s daughter, nor mine…she’s a long-time friend of our daughter Jill) are not fans of Rossi at all and how they describe her in real terms, isn’t nice and hasn’t been nice historically. The fact is, Jeff was never going to marry her and she knows it but likes to play it like they were so much in love (gee…wonder why???). I’ve known Jeff for 25 years and I did visit him in August while he was in the hospital at which time we talked a lot. What I know is totally different than what Gretchen portrays which means, I know the truth and she knows that I know the truth. Sometimes I feel pity for her which is about the most I can feel given all of her lies over the course of time. I really feel sorry for her family, especially her Mom.

My kids are so far above Gretchen in integrity, self-respect and character that it’s really embarrassing that they were ever exposed to her to begin with. Jeff said he was lonely and knew that he appeared desperate to a lot of people, probably both and not unlike a lot of people that are in their mid-life. Gretchen badgered him into being part of this show to begin with and Tamra exposing Gretchen for the fraud she is was gutsy even knowing that she’d experience some backlash from it. Gretchen screwing around on Chris with Jeff and on Jeff with Jay and Jay with Slade naturally would have it’s downside and if Gretchen believed that all of this would remain secret means that she is about as intelligent as a box of rocks. So….Jay exposed her…she’s earned all the disrespect she’s been given and gives to others and if she believes she deserves an iota of respect at all, well….I’m back to the box of rocks intellect again.

Sharon knows what she's talking about. I've met Gretchen on many occasions and can attest that she's lacking in the integrity department. Lies through her horse teeth all the time. She's pretty funny though.

That was all a ACT------Gretchen did get a MILLION---Her words were she didn't get MILLIONS---Do you see?? This whole thing had NOTHING to do with Jeff's age. It had to do with EXPLOITING a dieing man. Her taking His gifts while He laid in his hospital. and She went on trips to Vegas, Spas, Horse Tracks---So on ETC. Also Her and Bravo manipulating viewers into Her fake PERSONA and sad grieving story line. More and More of Gretchen's lies are surfacing, The whole thing is VERY sad. Bravo never thought how Jeff's GRIEVING Children would feel about their Father being Exploited on the show. They are in tremendous PAIN. And it is just HORRENDOUS the way Tamra and Her Family are being attacked by the mentally unstable Gretchen fans. Because she spoke up about the deception?? Shoot the messenger mentality. There was NOTHING Entertaining about watching a man die while his (Fiance) laughed it up!!!!!
