When you're a reality star, something that basically comes with the gig is enduring a lot of rumors about your personal life. In fact, that can sometimes mean dealing with rumors before you've even appeared on the show, as Real Housewives of Orange County Season 6 newbie Danielle Gregorio is finding out.

Danielle, a party planner with three kids, is currently filming the upcoming season of RHOC. Now, she and her family are having to respond to rumors that her husband, Joe Gregorio, is gay.

"Rumors regarding Joe’s sexuality and that he is gay are false and untrue," reads a statement released by Joe's PR team. "Joe is a loving husband and father to his three children and has never been unfaithful to Danielle during their time together."

"Joe takes these defamatory statements against him, his wife, and his family very seriously and is exploring any and all legal options to eradicate them," adds the statement.

We think it's a shame that Joe has to respond to such ridiculous rumors. We wish Joe and Danielle's family all the best, and we look forward to meeting them on the show this season!

Are you looking forward to seeing Danielle on the show?
