gretchen and jay in happier times
In the never ending saga:
In case you missed it….
In the seemingly never ending saga of Jay Photoglou versus Gretchen Rossi, Photoglou, whose picture should be in the dictionary under the word persistence, just lost a round in court when he attempted to revive the defamation lawsuit against Rossi.
Gretchen, of the Real Housewives of Orange County, was having an affair with Photoglou when her storyline was her engagement to Jeff Beitzel, who passed away in September, 2009. At the explosive Season 4 reunion, Tamra Barney called her out on the affair, and Gretchen dumped Photoglou immediately and took up with Slade Smiley, who was only too happy to get back on the series.
After years of accusations back and forth, Gretchen won the case, to the tune of $500,000 last November.
Jay, in his latest court action, tried to have the judgment thrown out, asserting the jury was "star struck" by Gretchen, and he's just a lowly used car salesman.
The judge tossed the petition…and Photoglou, out,upholding the jury verdict.
The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to the air for an unprecedented 8th season this Spring. UPDATE: EIGHTH SEASON BEGINS APRIL FOOLS DAY, LOL
