Since becoming aReal Housewives of Orange County cast member in Season 4 of the reality franchise, Gretchen Rossi has become a bona fide reality star —but that’s not her only job! Gretchen likes to keep busy with any number of side projects, and since she lives an impressively Housewives-esque lifestyle, we got to wondering what this blonde bombshell rakes in. So how much is Gretchen Rossi worth? About $3 million, which is not too shabby!
Gretchen reportedly takes home $300,000 per season of Real Housewives of Orange County. But we also expect she’s making some money from her accessories and cosmetics line, Gretchen Christine. Additionally, Gretchen often attends big public events (for a small fee) and has appeared in other TV shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Undateable, and Gumball 3000.
She was also apparently willed $2.5 million by her late fiancé, Jeff Beitzel, when he passed away in 2008. How much she was able to packet and how much went towards paying off debts owed by his estate is still unclear.
Finally, Gretchen just settled a long-standing lawsuit in which she was awarded half a million dollars — not exactly pocket change!
