Gretchen Rossi Says Tamra Continues To Prove She’s A Liar


Gretchen Rossi is taking to her Bravo Blog to set the facts straight about The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. Gretchen presents her side of the story and facts to every accusation that was thrown her way during the reunion. Gretchen says she is sick of Tamra’s lying and switching stories so she is presenting viewers with the facts so they can judge for themselves.

Gretchen writes, “First off I want to say sorry for not blogging for a while. Quite frankly it has not been at the top of my list to sit down and once again defend myself against ridiculous accusations from these women. When you know the truth sometimes you don’t have say anything at all. However I keep getting asked by many when I was going to write a blog again, so I decided to try tonight. Obviously I have a lot to say based off these last few episodes of watching the show, but I believe the audience is sophisticated and smart and can figure out the truth on their own. So this blog is simply to just state the facts:

1. Fact: The man the women continue to bring up I took to court and won seven counts against. In order to find someone guilty of punitive damages the jury needs to find that person acted with fraud, malice, or intent. Furthermore the claims he tried to bring against me for defaming him, false light, and slander, the jury found in favor of me and not of him.

2. Fact: When you have a jury trial, that means 12 unbiased people who know nothing about him or me sit in court for close to three weeks and hear just the facts and see only the evidence (including the pictures Tamra and Vicki attempted to bring up at the reunion) and they ruled in my favor for seven counts against him. I will speak about four of the counts specifically here because it has to do with what I continue to get questioned about by the woman. (The verdict is public record and you can look up all the counts if you want to know more) One count was for stalking, one was for harassment, one was for conversion (stealing private photos) and one count was for intentional infliction of emotional distress. These were things the woman questioned me about five years ago during the reunion (Tamra: “You said he was a stalker.”) and now once again during this reunion; I don’t need to defend myself any longer with these accusations because a judgment against his man for these counts speak for themselves. The jury also found in favor of having a restraining order put in place for me.

3. Fact: Tamra continues to prove she is a liar and even herself admits she lied as we see in the preview to Reunion Part 2. She constantly is out preaching to the press how she never lies and is just always honest, yet when I finally confront her about her lies and bring evidence of her own texts to me, she only then admits “yeah I lied to you.” The evidence of her texts telling me one thing all the while doing a completely different thing on-camera will prove my point that she is the one that lies — not me. On top of that, both Tamra and Vicki now claiming “At least we own it” is laughable.  Number 1: you owning it doesn’t make it OK. Number 2: they both only “owned it” once they got caught.

4. Fact: The Good news is that almost everything these woman have ever accused Slade and I of doing have come back to bite them in the ass, because the truth continues to come out about their own actions. I’ve noticed Tamra delete her tweets when she gets into trouble. Seems as if when she believes she is going to be held accountable for her lies, she quickly wants to delete them. If there was any truth to what she said why delete the posts?

5. Fact: Tamra says in one breath at the reunion that she still doesn’t know all the details of what really happened between me and this man but then five seconds later she is whipping out pictures and seems to think she knows exactly what happened between us. She can’t even keep her stories straight. She continues to challenges Lauri’s accusations saying “If she didn’t see them in bed together then she really doesn’t know what happened.” But when it comes to me, the same rules don’t apply. Funny how that always seems to be the case with them? Always a double standard.

6. Fact: Lauri came to me with the information about Vicki; I didn’t go searching for it. I didn’t confront Vicki or attack her or do what she did to me once I knew about it. I allowed Lauri to address it with her in Whistler and it wasn’t until Vicki started making accusations towards me on that mountain again that I got into it with her. Truth: If someone accuses you for years about cheating but then you find out they were actually the one cheating and lying to everyone for eight years, wouldn’t you have the same type of reaction I did when Lauri told me? Then Vicki finally admitted to it on the mountain and again at the reunion, so of course I have a right to be upset after all the years of tearing me apart.

What is so insane is Vicki attacking Lauri saying “all this has affected her business, she lost work because of it, it has affected her family.” Blah, Blah, Blah. Hilarious that only now Vicki realizes what accusations like this can do to someone’s life. It was just fine when they were doing it to me and it was affecting every aspect of my life. Neither Vicki nor Tamra have ever shown any concern about how their accusations of both Slade and I have caused damage to our personal lives. They simply don’t care.

7. Fact: Tamra keeps saying to stop bringing up the past, and she claims in press she never holds a grudge and just lets things go. Obviously another lie, since she goes right back there during this reunion with me. When I meet with Lauri, I didn’t know she was going to tell me about Vicki’s extra marital affairs. She asked me about my relationship with Vicki and I explained that it has always been rocky, but especially this last year because I felt she was being very hypocritical referring to the Slade/Brooks situation. The only reason the past got brought back up was because Lauri said Vicki is the most hypocritical person ever because she was having affairs on Donn all the while pointing her finger at me, so of course it’s going to spark conversation about the past. Truth: I could care less about what Vicki does, but because she made all these accusations about me for years and I suffered so much heartache and pain from it, of course I am going to be flabbergasted and angry that she was pointing the finger at me. It would have been the same if it was about Vicki or Tamra because they are the ones that came after me so hard with the accusations. It’s only human nature to feel that way. So this wasn’t about wanting to go back and address the past; talking about it with Lauri was about validation for me.

8. Fact: Two years ago when Alexis was asked about seeing this man and I on a boat together she said she saw us sitting on each other’s laps as we all piled in for a group photo and maybe we held hands as I was walking across the boat deck but it wasn’t in a relationship kind of way. But now all of sudden this year when we aren’t getting along she now thinks it could of gone the other way? Funny how these women change their tune according to how they feel about me in the moment. Why does it seem no one can be consistent with their stories? Maybe because that’s what happens when you lie.

9. Fact: When I said during Part 1 of this reunion: “I don’t say anything about the other woman I am not willing to say to their faces” none of the woman even could come back with a legitimate response because I called them out on it, they all had nothing to say back because they know that is how I am. Truth: I don’t say things behind people’s backs that I am not willing to say to their faces.

10. Fact: The woman tried to claim I can’t admit to anything or cop to things when I am wrong, however I clearly said I was wrong for making fun of Vicki’s surgery. She then she tried to claim I never apologized for it, then I reminded her that was not true and I did text her I was sorry. She had nothing to say back because she knew I had. I also have admitted on several occasions that clapping when Alexis left the CUT Fitness party was not right and mean. Truth: I have never said I am perfect, in fact I have always said I am far from it, but I will not be accused of failing to take responsibility of things when I am wrong because I have been wrong before and I have owned up to it. Anyone else ever notice how these two woman have selective memory? Vicki is caught lying once again about sending me such a nasty text, calling me c–t, adamantly denying she ever said that or uses words like that. It’s almost like they are pathological liars. They lie so much and so frequently they actually believe they don’t lie even when caught. . .

11. Fact: Every time the woman say I am making something up I have had evidence to prove differently; case in point: the jury verdict that took me four long years of being in court to prove my innocence of the accusations made of me, the Fox 5 email I brought to prove I wasn’t making up that I got offered the job, and now this year with the Malibu Country accusations, I brought a voicemail saved on my phone from my agent regarding the offer, where she clearly states “They want you for Malibu Country.” I also had an email from my agent, whom I showed to both Heather and Tamra this season (but that footage was never shown). Not to mention that ironically Alexis became my alibi when she said on the bus that she got called about Malibu Country as well. Truth: I don’t make things up because I have no reason to. It does not benefit me in any way.

12. Fact: The woman claim that I tried to manipulate Tamra into un-inviting Alexis from the dress shopping day with the Malibu Country gig. First off, how can you manipulate someone who you think is on the same page as you? Tamra was the one texting me (which I bring that evidence to the reunion in Part 2) that she didn’t want Alexis there, she claims she did not invite her, and she was pissed Alexis was coming. Furthermore, I have the same texts from Heather stating that it was ridiculous that Alexis would be coming because Tamra and she weren’t friends and Tamra didn’t want her there. So I ask the sophisticated and intelligent audience that is watching this show, how in the world am I manipulating her if she had the same sentiments I did? Just doesn’t match up, it’s called being two-faced. Oh and Tamra it’s not a rumor I started — it’s the truth about who you are in life, and who you have shown to be the last six years on this show with anyone you have called “a friend.”  You have proven it over and over again almost every year. Maybe you should take your own advice as you are always saying to others. . .”just own up to it.”

13. Fact: Tamra told me that she didn’t want to un-invite Alexis because she didn’t want to be seen as the bully again. Well once again little Miss “I am just always honest and real” wasn’t being so real in that scene now was she? I was the only one that was honest enough to say it was weird that Alexis was going because as far as I understood they were not friends. A dress shopping day is an intimate day and one would think you would want close and true friends there. Alexis and Tamra at that point were far from that. Truth: I think it’s great if they can get to that point of being good friends, but don’t be mad at me because I am the only one who is willing to be real and honest about how strange it seemed at that time, that you have to make up lies about me claiming I got offered a gig.

14. Fact: Just as Lauri brought to everyone’s attention this season, it’s always about deflection for these women, especially Vicki. Vicki knew it was going to be bad for her because she knew she got caught and finally admitted to cheating on Donn, so they decided to go after me again on a subject that has been laid to rest forever ago in order to deflect the focus off themselves.

15. Fact: I have a track record of being a successful business woman ranking in the top 7 percent internationally for my company as one of the top sales agents before I was even on this show, I bought my own home, my own cars, my own things, and have not been handed anything. I work hard every day for what I have, and my continued focus and success of expanding the Gretchen Christine collections into all categories speak for themselves. Vicki trying to demean me or say anything differently as if she knows anything about my financial status or “business” is mean-spirited, ignorant, and flat out degrading towards the woman empowerment movement of our time. Truth: the only thing Vicki has mentored me about is how not to act in business. I enjoy helping woman of all ages go after their dreams of owning their own companies and achieving success in whatever way they can.

16. Fact: I have the truth on my side and that is why I continue to be Unbreakable, you can make as many accusations as you want about me but it won’t alter my integrity or my character. Truth: I am strong, resilient, and confident and most of all happy and you cannot and will not ever rob me of my joy no matter how hard you try.

I could write a few more pages of these “Facts” but you get my point.”

  1. I loved Gretchen in the beginning but not so much now. She does have a track record and she continues to not tell the truth so much. She is beginning to remind me of Brandi Glanville. So sad.

  2. The facts are the facts. And the facts are that Tamara and Vicki have shown for years that they are hateful women that believe their own lies. It is priceless the way Vicki’s own daughter more than once called her out on the fact that she had been cheating with Brooks for years.
    Vicki likes to shout how independent and successful she is so she should pay spousal support to Donn just as he would have had to pay her had the financial situation been reversed.

  3. Gretchen has done a great job laying out the facts here. If there’s still anyone out there that thinks either Vicki or Tamra are decent, honest people it has to be from blind loyalty and not because it’s true.

    1. Gretchen is selective in her own “truth” just like Tamra and Vicki. They are all a complete mess. Unfortunately they all seem to be clinging to eachothers faults, and sinking in the process. Look back to the beginning of the season, way back. It was so much more innocent.

      This whole thing is sad. Nobody wins and nobody is 100% right or wrong.

      Right now, while she has been on the show in the past, Lauri feels like the newest, and since she’s come back in it looks like she is proving herself to be not the loveliest person…again…. Give her a few seasons to get her ass REALLY kicked. No wimping out now. And Yes Lauri, you worked FOR Vicki.

      The whole storyline of Vicki “in a threesome” is just ridiculous. Vicki, stay cool next time. You know the truth as anybody else should based upon Lauri’s waffling story.

      1. Absolutely agree 100% with this. They are all a mess and cling on to each other’s faults in a pathetic attempt to feel better about themselves.

  4. 17. FACT: The whole world was telling Wretch not to trust Tamra, yet she did it anyway like a true knucklehead. So all of her complaining and acting surprised and hurt by Tamra’s maliciousness is a complete waste of time. For someone who supposedly has a psych degree, Wretch is absolutely stupid when it comes to Tamra. Even Slimey expected Tamra to turn, it was just a matter of when.

  5. Gretchen, i am on your side! Tamara and vicki are both two faced , liars, and drama queens! Keep your chin up! Don’t hold nothing back when it comes to those two!!

    1. Can someone stick a fork in the Wretch, you are done. The party is over. You don’t have to feel guilty anymore. Get therapy.

    2. BULLSHIT!!!! Dont sit there and talk shit about Tamara and Vicki they make the show…….Gretchen needs to have all eyes on her. She did cheat on her dying fiance who she only loved for his money…..because she literally wanted to fuck Tamaras son and was teasing that kid on purpose!!! She did lie saying that she already got the part…..well lil miss prissy dumb bitch gretchen how could you have the part and start rolling when Alexis got a call about checking her availability for the same part. You lied you werent rolling!!! You also didnt know how much money you were getting duh thats cuz you might have got a call but they didnt offer you a part. You must have been rolling in your own damn film oh let me guess its called HOW CAN I TAKE THE SPOTLIGHT AWAY FROM TAMARA……EVERY CHANCE I CAN!!!!!!!! By the way now all of a sudden your ass is soooooo in love with Slade this season but most of the other seasons you were horrible to him he was your bitch and in the season before this last one you acted like you would have died if he had the audacity to ask you to marry him…..HOW DARE HE ASK YOU TO MARRY HIM WHEN HE IS BROKE!!!!!! Dont think your better than Alexis because your ass shit on her hard for no reason, and at Tamaras fitness dinner party you were stirring the pot and talking shit so Tamara got all flustered and freaked out(but she is still gorgeous while freaking out on people) Whats next you gonna have an affair with Slades brother and his mullet…….I guess I will have to stay tuned if you and y our fake lips will come back……But I will have to ask you if you could take a speech class cuz you say some words wrong like exactly and exec producer…….And if you see Tamara, Vicki, Alexis, Heather, and silly Lydia tell them everyone miss them.
      Greedy Gretch how I wonder if there is any chance you will read this lol!!!!! And Stacy no hard feelings between us you and I see things differently!!!!!!!

      1. Whoa, Amanda! Either you are so angry or so pro-Tamra you aren’t thinking or listening to what really happened! And you’re not alone, because of all the whipping up of anger Tamra and Heather, especially, have done. I’ve stood up for probably each of these women at one time or another, so I’m not being biased. This is how it works: When a production company or a casting agent or a your agent calls and specifies a set of dates or a date for a job it’s called putting a ‘hold’ on you. It means you are committed to them for that date. The show could cancel the hold, but it’s pretty clear they didn’t. And if (as she did) Gretchen says no, she’s actually turning down a job. I don’t care if it was for rehearsal or filming or a walk on, it doesn’t matter. Gretchen does have lazy speech, and if she called it filming instead of rehearsal that would be like her. But it doesn’t change the fact she turned down work. Money doesn’t need to be discussed, because there are rates everybody knows already in place. Also, Vicki piping up with the comment that it would be a “conflict of interest” if Heather and Gretchen worked on the same show is ridiculous. Yet Heather quickly agreed with her (and she would know better) because it was more important for her to win the argument than have the truth told. Heather is probably pretty embarrassed at this point and only playing CYA. If she’d been in the business 5 minutes she knows everything I’ve just said. The only reason for Heather bringing it up to begin with was to get it on air that she was “special.” Both times (pathetic) she’s got a part she’s turned it into a HUGE deal on RHOC. An actress with a real career isn’t flipping out with excitement when someone hires her, and she got both of these jobs because she’s on RHOC and its popular, not because she’s popular. There are fake lips and overblown relationships all over the franchises. Why you are so focused on Gretchen is beyond me. Truthfully, she’s probably had the least work of any of them, so if you think plastic surgery is something to slam someone for you should start with the rest of them. I think your angry emotion is ruling your opinions, and crowned out the ability to be fair.

          1. Thanks, Barb! I really should proofread before I hit ‘send’. I’m appreciative that you read all the way to the end of my diatribe.

  6. FACT if Wretch feels like she has to write this frickin book to defend herself she is guilty. If she would have said what Vickie and Tamara say means nothing to me and move on she would look more credible. Sorry gretch/ wretch Im not buying a word. Now as I state that Im not a fan of Vickie or Tamara its just weird that she spent all that time defending herself. ….

    1. Melodie, you’re wrong! What she did ( and what evidence requires) was supply facts, not just claim what she was saying was a “fact” as you just did. I’m not attached to any of these women, but it does bother me when people spout their emotion with accusations as if it’s a substitute for truth. She DID win in court, nobody saw her sleep with the guy (which is Vicki’s defense for herself), and she actually was asked to be on that show. I have some experience with how that works, and I know that when a production company calls contacts her agent, as they did, they put a “hold” on you for that date – which she apparently refused or cancelled in favor of going to Tamra’s dress appointment. All Heather was trying to do by disputing that was to point out her’s was an acting job, not a guest spot appearing as herself. Heather is such an ass hat I can’t believe you guys can’t see what she does.

      1. DebBrenn Again what I said in simpler terms is that a mature young woman who is secure with herself has no need to prove anything> She exposes herself to criticism by putting her life on a television. Writing all of that crap was unnecessary and a waste of time. My play on it is No tears no comments no reasoning. Stand up and say what you have to say and hit the delete button on the negative comments on the computer. She is hiding something that is FOR SURE. I don’t care what it is or what happened. As a clinical psychologist she is an extremely insecure woman. TO bad she cannot just move on with their lives and be happy. If you put yourself on this show they deserve the responses and she can choose to defend them or let them go….

        1. That is not what you said in “simpler terms”. What you said was, “fact… [if she disputes it in writing]….she is guilty.” That’s just stupid. We all watch this crap and judge it, but making comments public also gives everybody a right to point out when your ‘facts’ aren’t facts but illogical assumptions.

      2. DebBrenn: With all due respect, please give me a break! The “facts” dispute is ridiculous. Gretchen’s definition of “facts” is quite clearly very self serving and the majority of “facts” as she states them, are her opinions, as well as her twisting reality in writing to fit her agenda. Good God. It’s draining to watch this woman flail about. Gretchen is certainly not happy from the looks of things. As for her “business acumen” vs. Vicki’s, there is really no contest now, is there? Please. Sorry, some things speak for themselves.

        1. Barb: If you want to prove a theory you say WHY, instead of giving several new opinions as you just did, and you also need to have a CORRECT PREMISE. You’ve just given a straw man argument. Gretchen didn’t compare her business acumen or results with Vicki’s, which is the argument you falsely assume. She basically said she didn’t like Vicki’s putting her down and that she is supporting herself and doing well, which she obviously is. Doesn’t it gall you that Vicki makes cracks likes “let’s compare 1090s”? What a frappin’ bragger she is and in such poor taste! I’d like to shake Vicki and tell her that her comments about how beautiful she is, and her house is, and how successful she is miss the point that a little decency and humility would be far more admirable.

          1. Sorry, DebBrenn, but ‘why’ is the last for a reason, (“who what when where why”). ‘Why’ can be explained/defined in terms that aren’t factually based and therefore, potentially useless in this formula. Comparing 1099’s as Vicki suggested would be a much more solid form of proof, i.e., a FACT, as in she made more money, therefore, has superior business acumen. No straw man here doll. You are grasping and emotional.

  7. I think the lady doth protest too much. That being said, I will agree that Vicki and Tamra are definitely not examples of good morals and values.

  8. It was a joy to see Gretchen and tamra get along last year and early part of this year. I don’t know what or why it happened. Tamra needs to figure out what kind of woman she wants to be. Ill always be a Gretchen supporter. But I do admit that you need to mend fences with Alexis already. You gals used to be so close. Lastly, Vicki is really only useful to the show because she causes the most drama.

  9. Tamra, Vicki, and “princess” are all two faced mean girls. Vicki has no humility and loves to degrade and put down other women. The reason? She’s insecure! It makes her feel better about herself to demean others. Even her new face shows her insecurities. The way these women use “I own it” is a total cop out & doesn’t take responsibility. Owning up to something doesn’t give you a free pass to do shady stuff. And I’m sorry but dress shopping is a memory and is personal! You invite your bridesmaids & your moms. Inviting someone you didn’t like is ridiculous. You can move on by going to lunch, gym, shop etc. I’m glad Gretchen called her out & put the truth put. You know Gretchen isn’t my favorite. She can really get on my nerves sometimes but I just don’t like the way she’s being treated this season. I also wouldn’t doubt if this was a contrived plan by tamra and Vicki.

  10. It’s so sad, I actually liked when they were friends, as I’ve never liked Vicki since day 1. I’ve always adored Gretchen and Tamra has been on the fence for me, but she just pushed herself off now. So now I watch for Gretchen, Heather, and Lydia. Tamra and Vicki are definitely one and the same; pretty is as pretty does. Both Tamra and Vicki are hideous in my eyes. They are GROWN women. Act like it. Why are Tamra and Vicki so involved in everyone else’s business…? And their “sources” are crap. Absolute crap.
    While I don’t like the way Slade treats women, I do feel bad that everybody feels the need and the right to criticize their relationship. They’re happy, they’re adults, so hop off.
