'Real Housewife' Gets Millions from Dead Fiance

8/26/2009 2:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gretchen Rossi"Real Housewife of Orange County" Gretchen Rossi says her late fiance didn't leave her "millions and millions of dollars" -- and she's right, he only left her 2.5.

We got a look at Jeff Beitzel's trust -- amended a month before his death -- and even though Rossi tried to make it look like he didn't leave her much in a "Real Housewives" reunion special, she actually pulled in a pretty penny.

Gretchen was awarded $2,500,000 -- some of which she collected from Beitzel's life insurance policy.

Rossi's not the only one who sounds disappointed about the dough -- we hear some of Beitzel's five ex-wives aren't too happy with her haul either.

FYI -- it seems Rossi's already moved on. She's been spotted recently with Slade Smiley.

she will blow the $$$$, anyways,

SO she was a paid help ( I think she should have got some $$$$) but 2.5 for 1 year is pretty excessive, did not the kids get about the same amount?

The poor sap Din't leave her much...at least by Gold Diggin, no skills, can't hold a job whore standards. The old cougar better start looking for a sugar daddy pretty quick...after estate taxes she's only a few liposuction, tummy tucks, or boobs jobs away from the poor house.

Why is she considered a Housewife, she has never had any kids or been a wife! She's a skank in the true sense of the word. She has done nothing to warrant her being called a Housewife, it's ridiculous! And she was dating a guy while engaged to this older gent. And she sure got over him quickly, moved right onto Slade Smilely,literally! And now rumor is she's pregnant by him. Wow, she sure grieves for her late fiance or should I say 'financier!' She's nothing but an escort, looking for alot of $$ from unsuspecting old men that have deep pockets who want to get their groove on with a younger girl. Note, I didn't use the word lady, because she certainly isn't one, and has absolutely NO class or sophistication.

And, she looks like a transvestite/drag queen with the way she wears her makeup.Would be scary to see her w/o the caked on makeup I'm sure. If you're truly beautiful you shouldn't have to wear so much, makeup is meant to enhance your beauty not look like you are a circus clown or again, a guy dressed in drag! And that laugh of hers, yikes, "run Forest runnnnn!"

I'm sure the $$ she got will keep Slade around for awhile, since he has NONE and doesn't even pay Child Support OR have a place to pee! He's shacking up with her, what a piece of garbage. Major Poser here!

I can't believe all the negative comments on Gretchen. She is too young to be a 'cougar'. As long as his kids got money, that's important.. Why should any ex wives get anything? I like Gretchen and wish her the best. You go, girl. She's my favorite of the "housewives.' She seems the most sincere!!

Of course she's moved on. She wasn't with him for love in the first place.
