Gretchen Rossi has been working on her fashion business for quite some time, and she is no longer thinking about returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County. For a while, the show seemed to be a chapter for her that was closed. But this season’s cancer drama brought up some old issues, and Rossi felt it was necessary for her to step in.
A few years ago, Gretchen Rossi was filming the show with her partner, Jeff. At the time, he was dying from cancer and was in the hospital. It was clear that he was on his final days, but Gretchen kept filming The Real Housewives of Orange County, and going on trips with her family. Clearly, she was dealing with the cancer her own way. Vicki Gunvalson was very judgmental, saying that she would never film a show if her partner had cancer. Fast forward to this season, where Brooks Ayers is struggling with cancer.
According to a new Radar Online report, Gretchen Rossi has been spotted filming The Real Housewives, but she hasn’t come back to address Vicki. In fact, Gretchen has been spotted filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump. This past weekend, Lisa held her “Stop Yulin Forever” charity event, where the city marched to spread awareness about the Yulin festival. And Rossi was present to film with the ladies.
So, is Gretchen Rossi planning on filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Not so fast. Apprently, Gretchen has been talking about possibly returning to Orange County to film with her former cast members. Apparently, Rossi is in the “late stage talks” to make a triumphant return to the franchise. It wasn’t exactly a coincidence that she was caught filming for Bravo when she attended the festival this weekend. This could be Gretchen Rossi’s way of saying that she is back.
“The network and Gretchen are in late stage talks about her possibly returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County next season,” the insider has revealed, even though Rossi claims she wants lots of money to return to the show, adding herself, “They have to pay me a ridiculous amount of money to do so.”
And Bravo may be willing to dish up the big cash to get her back on the show. Bethenny Frankel recently make her big return to The Real Housewives of New York, and it is possible that Gretchen really wanted to see how that went before making any promises. But there are some Orange County housewives that don’t want to see her back. Tamra Barney has revealed that Rossi isn’t her favorite person.
But Vicki Gunvalson would actually love to have Gretchen Rossi back on the show. Apparently, Vicki isn’t friends with Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds, and she would rather film the show with Rossi than with the other ladies. As Vicki suggested last week, according to EnStarz, she could see “Gretchen to replace Meghan next year.” Despite their differences, Gunvalson added that Gretchen has a good heart and is “a working girl. I would definitely choose to have Gretchen back.”
It is interesting that Gretchen Rossi is being invited back by Vicki Gunvalson, considering the two are so different. Rossi has been slamming Vicki on social media, pointing out her hypocritical behavior in regards to cancer, Brooks Ayers, and Gretchen once filming the reality show. It is no secret that Rossi would be a delight to have back on the show, since there are so many unresolved issues with Tamra and Vicki.
