If you don't believe me... this excerpt is taken from a "Bravofan" blog, dated February 17, 2009:

Real Housewives of Orange County’s Jeff Beitzel’s Daughter on Rock of Love Bus
by Maria Diaz on February 17th, 2009

Absurd to Sublime, the world’s most confusing blog has posted that one of the stars of “Rock of Love” Bus on VH-1 is none other than Jennifer Beitzel, daughter of the late Jeff Beitzel, who we all know as Gretchen Rossi’s boyfriend/wallet on Real Housewives of Orange County. There isn’t much online to back up this connection, but it looks like this one might be true, kids.

Beitzel’s facebook has her in a Michigan network, where the Beitzels are based out of. The other Beitzel children (Jake, Lizzy and Jill — who all appeared on Real Housewives of Orange County with Gretchen) all have Myspace accounts but other than Jake, the girls have kept their accounts private. Glancing at Jake’s 400+ friends (and his incredibly sad “RIP Dad” post on the front page of his profile), it doesn’t appear that he is friends with his sister Jen.

Apparently, Jen cries over Jeff’s death on the show to Rock of Love star Bret Michaels and was supposedly estranged from the family.
The whole bunch of them are just a bunch of fame seeking wh0res!!!!!!!!!!!

As I recall, she was to get a lot of dead lovers money ( i am VERY surpriced that she didnt marry him on his death bed ).

I wonder what that mans kids think of her now, they appeared to try to have a good relationship with her because of their dad, but the reading of the will must have been a war, now thats something Id like to see in the reunion show!!!!!!!!!!

And I agree with you #14 , when karma hits her it will be total devistation ( I hope : ) )

RIP Jeff.

OK,Im done.............

I have been a loyal fan of this show since the first series. Some of the ladies have no entertainment value and have been awful to watch like the Cougar from last years episode and her whinny golf coach boyfriend.

Tamara was boring, dorky, icky last season and never dreamed they'd bring her back but they did. Bravo, no one wants her back that are fans of your show. Please dont put us through anymore Tamara agony just so we can watch the Housewives we do enjoy. There is just nothing even remotely fun about watching her or her husband. I think all fans of the show should have the opportunity to be heard regarding Tamara because NO ONE wants her back! I'd rather have a stick in my eye.

GRETCHEN is a HOOT and entertaining as all get out! She is so fun and witty and adorable! I never got the impression her and Jeff where the loves of each other's lives and she basically was there helping him through a difficult time with the hopes he would get better and they could exploe thier relationship further. He died so that was that.

Bring Lynne back. She has a lot of the common sense that Jenna brings to the show and she was snuffed out by Tamara and Vicki throughout the episodes when we all would've wished they'd shut up.

Tamra is awesome! She tells it like it is and hates Gretchen, who cares, everyone does! Jeff didnt want to marry her in the hospital, that was fabricated by the bleach blonde white trash whore Gretchen.... Dont bring her and her big fake teeth back on the show, we are sick of watching her act a fool.

Smiley is broke as a joke. Can't see what she sees in this 50 year old who wants to be 30.

Dear elk - there is no plain jane white bread chicks. Plain jane is when all the women of your race can only have one eye color, one hair color and one skin color - all dark. You racist pig! I love it when the jealousy of other race women come screaming out especially against gorgeous white women. You are all so transparent. Oh, you do have another color - green.

What is it with the women on this show and ridiculous eye wear? I sincerely hope she (they) are being paid handsomely to wear such ugly, obnoxious glasses. You can't buy taste, no matter how many sick old men you take to the cleaner.

I don't believe that Gretchen/Slade picture was taken this last Wednesday. Maybe Wednesday - in Summer 2008, but certainly not only two days ago. The temps have been too cold. Good grief, people - THINK!

Ummmm. It's been six months. She is young and allowed to move on. Get over it people. What did you expect her to do? Mourn for years. Geez. The old guy seemed pretty happy with her and she was happy with him. She did her job, she made him happy. I doubt he would want her life to end.

Gretchen and Jeff had a equally satisfying relationship. Whatever the terms of that relationship were it appears both got what they wanted. Even Jeff's kids liked Gretchen - that alone told me a lot. As for Slade, though. I have to admit, I'm disappointed she would let him even near her. The guy is totally creepy.

she is a dirty bicth plain and simple. She is just a very high priced hooker.
