“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi decided to quit the show last season after a dramatic season that left her in tears. During the reunion, the other ladies brought up her proposal to Slade Smiley and questioned whether her happiness was indeed what she wanted them to see. She was completely heartbroken and left. According to a new Radar Online report published on June 1, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi is now revealing that she isn't watching the show.
Even though Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson has talked about her a couple of times this season already, Gretchen has admitted that she is not watching the show. She has been focusing on her business instead, and has often tweeted about being at the office. She has also been focusing on her relationship and even thinking about a wedding.
“We’re really happy to be away from the negativity and how toxic it was,” Gretchen has revealed to TooFab.com. “As a woman, I am really about empowering other women so it just was not that kind of forum for me anymore,” she revealed. “I couldn’t be who I was in my everyday life on that show, so it made it very difficult. It became a big contradiction in my life.” When she did leave the show, she admitted to being very upset.
She admits that she has not been watching the show because she wanted to move on from the negativity. If she kept watching the show, she would be upset about the things she would be seeing, including Tamra's comments about them not being friends anymore and about how Gretchen wasn't a fun person. But Gretchen and Slade are not planning on ever returning to the show.
“When I walked away from that, I don’t want to go back to watching it because it gets me all upset,” she revealed. “It provokes these emotions of frustration." Slade hasn't revealed that he has watched the show, but he was quick to comment about Tamra's baby drama, saying that she was making up the baby plot line to gain more viewers because of the drama. He claims it is all false and a plotted story line to get higher ratings.
