In a new interview, the reality star turned designer opens up about her thought on the Bravo show and reveals why she chose to expose her and her fiancé's relationship issues in WEtv's "Marriage Boot Camp."

“You know what, never say never,” Rossi told Wetpaint Entertainment on June 9 of a return to Bravo. “The show became a little too negative and too toxic for me. But, if certain things change, you never say never. I’m just to the point where I want to empower women, and the vision that Housewives had was not on that same path, so I’m looking forward to living happy and living a different life than what was portrayed on Housewives."

Now that Rossi has moved on from "The Real Housewives of Orange County," she and her fiancé, Slade Smiley, are focused on their relationship and future marriage.

“When we turned the page with Housewives, we really wanted to go to a place where we could learn and grow — whether that was TV or not, we had no idea,” Gretchen continued. “So when WE tv came to us, we saw it as an opportunity to grow in our relationship."

Although the pair have yet to reveal a wedding date, Rossi has been public with the fact that she recently scouted venues on the east coast. Rossi has also made it no secret that she'd love to have a baby or two -- possibly before they tie the knot.
