“Real Housewife” Gretchen Rossi Is A Millionairess

On “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” Gretchen Rossi played the part of resident gold digger. Squired around town by her way-older-than-her auto-exec fiancé Jeff Beitzel, Rossi cooed over the big diamonds that he bought her, but she made it clear to the other cast members that being included in his will didn’t matter to her. After Beitzel lost his battle with cancer, she declared that her late fiancé didn’t leave her “millions and millions of dollars.” As it turns out, though, he did. He left her $2.5 million, which I guess is a couple million and not “millions and millions.” (Or would those two “millions” make $2 million?) Supposedly, Beitzel’s five ex-wives are none too happy about missing out on Rossi’s share. Now, Rossi is dating slimy Slade Smiley. Shudder. [TMZ] Keep reading »

Sugar Ray Loves Cougars

Mark McGrath and his band Sugar Ray are really into cougars. So much so, that they’ve named their latest album Music for Cougars. While I’m slightly offended that they’re targeting such a specific demographic (oh, and I normally want to vom in my mouth upon hearing the term ‘cougar’), McGrath and his buddies are totally into these ladies. About the word, McGrath says, “There’s no negative slant. It’s a word of empowerment. Cougars are great!” He’s particularly fond of Vicki from “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” He even titled the track “She’s Got The (Woo-Hoo)!” after her customary greeting from the show. While the blonde O.C. mom may be flattered, I have to say if there was ever a reason not to purchase an album, I think naming a song after the most unbearable woman on a Bravo series would be a pretty solid rationale.

New Housewife Coming To Orange County

Real Housewife replacement checklist: Dyed Blonde hair? Check! Fake boobies? Check! Paralyzed facial muscles? Check! Huge bank account? Double check! That’s right, the producers of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” have cast a new blonde bombshell for the show’s fifth season. Since original cast member Lauri Waring Peterson will not be returning, they needed to find a replica quick. Based on her picture, it seems like they’ve been successful. The newbie is Alexis Bellino and she’s a 32-year-old (yeah, right) socialite. Oh, and she’s on Facebook. That’s all the juicy details I’ve got for now, but don’t you just love how easily replaceable these ladies are? When Mischa left “The O.C.” the show completely collapsed. In Bravo’s reality land, such a travesty could never happen. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Gretchen Rossi And Slade Smiley Are Really Dating

A few weeks ago, we told you “Real Housewives of Orange County” stars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley were secretly hooking up. Well, now there’s photographic evidence. Slade and Gretchen are not only kissing in some of the shots, but he’s also checking out her butt while holding her at arms length. Gretchen, of course, seems to be acting her usual flirtatious self, showing off her tiny booty and veneered smile. And she’s wearing an engagement ring, which is probably the same one Jeff Beitzel gave her during season four because Slade has been having money troubles lately and probably couldn’t afford one. I can say one positive thing about this doomed affair: Her white bikini with black lace details is rather cute. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Another “Real Housewives” Arrest And A Few More Rap Sheets

The talent of “The Real Housewives of New York” seem like the classiest and most sophisticated of the housewives bunch. I mean, LuAnn deLesseps is writing a book on etiquette and Alex McCord’s sons speak like 15 languages. Plus, the women are actually immersed in New York’s high society. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have their legal woes too. Kelly Killoren Bensimon, the newest addition to “The Real Housewives of New York” cast, gives off an air of refinery, but this former model can get down and dirty when she wants. Keep reading »

Embrace Your Love Of “The Real Housewives”

Here’s why you should embrace your love of these women, even though they exhibit the worst of stereotypical feminine traits. Keep reading »
