Gretchen Rossi EXCLUSIVELY reveals she’s already been requested to return to ‘RHOC’ TWICE. So will she?
The way forward for The Actual Housewives of Orange County nonetheless stays unsure, however as followers anxiously await an announcement on a possible sixteenth season of the collection, Gretchen Rossi is teasing a attainable comeback.
When Gretchen not too long ago sat down with HollywoodLife for an EXCLUSIVE interview, she stated she’d take into account returning to RHOC, but it surely “would rely upon the solid and [Andy Cohen] is aware of the particular solid member that I don’t wish to be on digital camera with once more.” Gretchen didn’t title names, however for anybody who watched the present whereas she was on it (particularly, Season 4-8), it was apparent that she was referring to her onscreen rival, Tamra Decide, who she nonetheless feuds with in interviews on social media every so often.
Anyway, Tamra stated a choice to return would additionally rely upon “the monetary aspect of it”. She defined, “It’s humorous as a result of even final evening I used to be speaking to [my fiance] Slade [Smiley] and I used to be like, ‘You recognize what? Our companies are doing rather well. We’re at such a superb place proper now in our life and I don’t even know at this level if even the cash would draw me again.’ It’s simply, sadly, such a poisonous atmosphere. I simply keep in mind my abdomen turning each week earlier than [I] would go on. Each week, there’s some GIF about me, some article written about me, any individual being merciless, some cyber bullying happening and I’m not even on the present anymore. I don’t know if I’m enthusiastic about subjecting myself to that viewers and that fan base as a result of they like to hate you. Fifty p.c love you and fifty p.c hate you.”
Besides, Gretchen says she has been approached to return to the present — a number of occasions. “A pair seasons after I left, that they had referred to as a few occasions they usually had been like, ‘Do you wish to come again?’ and I used to be like, ‘Pay me $5 million,’ they usually had been like, ‘Are you severe?’ and I used to be like, ‘Yeah, I’m severe!’ they usually had been like, ‘OK, we’ll speak to you later!’ So it’s a type of issues the place it must be actually silly cash, the place all of my family and friends must be like, ‘Gretchen, that is silly to say no.’ It might take in all probability quite a bit and I simply don’t suppose the community’s at that place the place they wish to try this,” she revealed throughout our interview on Could 7.
Gretchen went on to say that she was additionally requested to return to the present just a few seasons later, however for some purpose, issues simply didn’t work out. We’re guessing they didn’t supply her that $5 million paycheck. “[They asked me to come back] the season proper after I left, and I feel we had been speaking two seasons proper after that once more. I don’t even know what season that may’ve been. There’s been some conversations, for positive,” she instructed us.
Gretchen didn’t say whether or not or not she’s been requested to return again for a possible Season 16, however she did say that she and a few of the present solid members are frightened concerning the present’s future. “Right here’s the factor,” she stated. “I’m curious what’s even going to occur with Orange County as a result of usually, they begin filming in February and usually, the present’s virtually within the can they usually’re speaking about airing it and air dates proper now round this time. I’m nonetheless mates with a few of the women on the present solid they usually’re like, ‘We don’t know what’s taking place. We don’t know what’s happening,’ so it’s like in my thoughts I’m like, ‘Are they even going to deliver again Orange County or are they going to switch it to the Peacock like they did Miami or are they doing a brand new present to exchange Housewives?’ All these items begin going by way of your head as a result of 15 seasons is lots of seasons and I feel the viewers — as a lot as they like it — they’ve seen lots of the storylines they usually’ve seen lots of the stuff that goes on. I nonetheless suppose there’s some fairly fabulous folks in Orange County that they may have on the present, however they have an inclination to not like that as a lot I really feel like. I feel they like lots of the dysfunction greater than the fabulous, so I don’t know! I feel it is going to be fascinating to see what shakes out for the long run with Orange County.”
