Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi devoted most of her latest Bravo blog to gushing about how her hard-working beau, Slade Smiley, was oh-so-sweet to try and buy her a ring and how she wants to make lots of babies with him — bling or no bling — and how glad she is that he lets her spread her wings with her new makeup line... yada yada yada.
But the real Gretchen-y fun came with her reaction to Vicki Gunvalson and Briana’s major mother/daughter spat in Season 7, Episode 14. The two fought over Vic’s boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, who moved to the OC just to be with her before her divorce to Donn was finalized.
While fellow Housewives Tamra Barney and Alexis Bellino have taken Vicki’s side on the on-going battle, Gretchen’s declared her allegiance to Team Briana.
She wrote, “What I found the most interesting was when Briana basically called her mom out for emotionally cheating on Donn with Brooks,” and that she is “sure proud of Briana” for doing so. In Gretchen’s opinion, “Briana is not a 14-year-[old] kid being disrespectful to her mom; she is a grown married adult talking to her mom as a concerned daughter about multiple issues.
“Briana said a lot of things I have wanted to say to Vicki,” Gretchen continued. “I think [Vicki] is a major hypocrite. I sincerely hope that Vicki can start to take a deeper look at herself after this episode and see that even her own daughter is pointing out the same things we are to her.”
Does this mean Gretchen is now officially a member of the Anti-Brooks Club?
