Gretchen Rossi is no longer starring on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but she’s recently become a hot topic. As Vicki Gunvalson continues to deal with her boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ cancer diagnosis on the Bravo reality series, many have criticized her for her comments about Gretchen Rossi during past seasons.
As fans of the show will recall, Gunvalson and Tamra Barney slammed Gretchen Rossi for continuing to film the show as her former fiance, Jeff, who has since passed on, battled Leukemia. But now, as her own partner battles cancer, Gunvalson has done exactly what she criticized her former co-star for doing.
On June 17, Gretchen Rossi participated in an interview with Real Mr. Housewife, during which she claimed both Gunvalson and Barney have been hypocritical on the show.
“I find it very hurtful that both Tamra and Vicki gave me such a hard time that I was filming a reality show while Jeff was sick, claiming on the show and to the press many times that ‘if one of their family members were sick, they certainly would not be on a reality show,’ yet, now the tables are turned and it’s ok? This is the kind of hypocrisy that drove me crazy with these women. I’m disgusted now thinking back how these women viciously attacked me for choosing to be authentic and film while Jeff was diagnosed with Leukemia, not to mention all the claims they made about me during the worst time of my life.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Gretchen Rossi recently spoke out, claiming not everyone’s story lines are legit on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Although she didn’t name names, Barney has been accused of faking her baptism on the show, while Gunvalson’s boyfriend, Ayers, has been accused of having faked his cancer diagnosis.
Below is what Gretchen Rossi told Christy Reports,
“I would probably say there’s a lot of girls out there that make up storylines every season and I happen to not be one of those people… So if they want to say that it’s real and honest this season, good for them but I would highly doubt it.”
In her Real Mr. Housewife interview, Gretchen Rossi went on to claim it was “ironic” that now that the women are in her shoes, Barney has said “it’s fine to film,” and accused the women of lying when it is convenient for them.
