Is Gretchen Rossi Returning to RHOC?

An insider exclusively tells us that the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County will begin filming season thirteen next month, and while Lydia and Peggy will not return, a new reports suggests there is a possibility that Gretchen Rossi will.

Another insider claims to RadarOnline that Rossi is in deep negotiations to return next season. The site reports that Gretchen is requesting a salary like Vicki Gunvalson’s, which is $750K, and Bravo is actually considering paying her for the drama.

“Gretchen is willing to return, but producers know she will only sign if they offer the kind of money she can’t refuse,” a source told Radar, adding that she is looking for a salary like Tamra Judge or Vicki Gunvalson.

After Vicki and Tamra’s surprising reconciliation at the reunion, Bravo execs are considering bringing back Gretchen for drama. “Producers for RHOC know that they need someone who is going to bring the drama, and Gretchen will certainly do just that,” a network insider said.

“Gretchen will never, ever make up with Tamra. The two hate each other so much and it does not matter to Gretchen whether or not Vicki let it go because she will not,” the source claims. Yes, they do hate each other, but I don’t know if I believe that Gretchen would never make up with Tamra, sorry.
