Gretchen Rossi has sent a message to the newest housewife of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Meghan King Edmonds. Although the two had a brief conversation prior to Season 10, Gretchen Rossi has reached out to Edmonds, yet again, this time to express her sadness in the loss of LeAnn Edmonds.
In a message to Edmonds on July 29, Gretchen Rossi wrote, “I am beyond sorry to hear about the loss of your step daughters mother. I just found out last night after seeing u on E! News. My heart goes out to you and your family. #alltoofamiliar Sending prayers.”
Gretchen Rossi appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County until the end of Season 8, at which point two new wives, Lizzie Rovsek and Shannon Beador, replaced her and Alexis Bellino. While filming the Bravo reality show years ago, Rossi, who joined the show alongside her then-fiancé, Jeff, was rocked when Jeff passed away after a long battle with leukemia.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Gretchen Rossi has been asked back to The Real Housewives of Orange County since her exit, but has yet to do so. During an interview with Radar Online earlier this year, Rossi explained she was simply too busy to return to Bravo for Season 10.
“They’ve already asked me to come back and do some stuff… I never say never, but at this point I have a lot of great projects going on in my life and I’m excited about moving on to the next thing. At this point, they’d have to pay me a lot of money!”
As for whether or not she’s seen Edmonds’ debut, Gretchen Rossi explained, “I have not seen it. I am in the process of getting all of the clutter out of my life and that includes RHOC!”
In a separate interview, via Real Mr. Housewife, Gretchen Rossi expressed her frustrations with her former Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars’ hypocritical behavior 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?”
After leaving the show, Gretchen Rossi continued to branch out her line of makeup and handbags.
