The Gretchen Rossi “Fire Sale”

More evidence that Gretchen Rossi is desperately looking for money: She is selling off her personal collection of makeup from the Gretchen Christine Collection on

Of course, most fans who have followed the Real Housewives of Orange County over the last few years know that her cosmetics are manufactured by Lady Burd Cosmetics, and anyone can have it……just sign on the dotted line, and Lady Burd will slap your name on the products. (the Sharon Cosmetic Line is coming soon!)#not.

Gretchen was recently fired from the Real Housewives of Orange County because the focus groups uses to tell “what time it is” for their various RH’s said time was up for Gretchen and Housewife Hunter Slade Smiley, who “played” her fiancĂ© for the last four seasons.

If you click through the collection, most pieces have only one item left in stock….for her skin color. Luckily for Gretchen, LadyBurd dumped her months ago.

Lady Burd Dumps Gretchen Rossi

Think how much product she’s have if the relationship continued.

When Gretchen first came up with this “venture”, the gullible fans who wanted these products were put off by………wait for it………..Pay to the Order of Slade Smiley   Yes, you read correctly.

Not to mention the explosive allegations brought against Gretchen and Slade by Ron Ann Myers, the business partner shown briefly during Season 5 (Remember her?)

How much will we miss this shady pair?

The Real Housewives of Orange County is currently filming Season 9.

Gretchen Rossi Denies She Was Fired From RHOC

Gretchen Rossi is vehemently denying that she was fired from, or “not asked back” to the Real Housewives of Orange County.  She was attending a charity auction in Los Angeles, auditioning off those plastic-looking handbags of hers, when she talked to a reporter.  Gretchen, 36, implied she left on her own, despite the claims by Vicki Gunvalson and , who really did leave on her own, that she had indeed been fired by .

Oh, and Slade Smiley also.

According to the reporter:


She made it very clear that headlines saying she’s been axed by Bravo are false. Gretchen implied that the decision is hers to make, but it sounds like she’s leaning towards leaving.

Her costars Tamra Barney, Heather Dubrow and Vicki Gunvalson have already started shooting a new season. So what could be the holdup on Gretchen? I got that scoop too!

It must have something to do with the pack of reality TV cameras she points out to me in the video. They followed her around all night and I noticed one of them had on a badge that said Marriage Bootcamp. It’s a WEtv spin-off of Bridezillas and could mean nothing. But Gretchen is engaged to Slade Smiley. I grilled a different cameraman outside and he said the network attached to Gretchen’s project isn’t Bravo, and she is starring but it isn’t all about her.


WEtv?  A much smaller venue, but for Gretchen and Slade, being seen on TV is the prime concern. No wonder she’s auctioning off those crappy handbags. After a salary of over $150,000, plus whatever they threw in for Slade, she’ll be lucky to clear $50K on WEtv.

A Bridezilla spin-off?  Seriously?
