Are some viewers planning to boycott the new season of Real Housewives of Orange County because Gretchen Rossi has been fired from the show? It's starting to sound that way. 

On April 3, one of Gretchen's Twitter followers tweeted at her that she wouldn't be watching RHOC Season 9 because Gretchen isn't a part of it. And Gretchen responded by saying that this isn't the first time she's been told this. 

"Many have said that. Xoxo," Gretchen tweets at her fan. The fan then adds that Bravo will realize their mistake when the show's ratings go down, to which Gretchen replies, "So true."

Indeed, there's no doubt that Gretchen has a very devoted fanbase. And the fact that many of her fans won't tune in suggests that the ratings may in fact suffer when Season 9 begins on April 14.

While we're bummed that Gretchen is no longer part of the show, it sounds like Gretchen is staying very busy and keeps lining up future projects. We're also excited to continue to hear more details about her forthcoming nuptials to fiance Slade Smiley!

Do you plan to stop watching the show because of Gretchen? Or are you going to give the show's new cast members a chance?
