Gretchen Rossi’s New Interview With People Magazine

In a new interview with People magazine, Gretchen finally speaks out about her fiance Jeff, Tamra and this season of the Real Housewives.

Below are some excerpts from the interview –

How are you holding up?
Every day is a different emotion. I wake up and either I’m happy or I’m really sad so it really just depends on the day. It’s kind of like a moving river … there’s always something new that has come to the surface.

Do you have any regrets about doing the show during such difficult time?
Of course I do. When Jeff and I agreed to do the show, he was doing really well. We actually thought that he was going to go into remission. His doctors were very optimistic. Unfortunately, cancer has a mind of its own and a month after we started shooting, he got extremely sick. He got pneumonia and had to go back into the hospital. Then the cancer just really started to take over his body more quickly than we could get to it with chemo and everything else we were trying.

Have you heard from supportive fans?
The feedback has been extremely positive. So many people that are caretakers have said, “Thank you for showing that you can still go out and live your life, you don’t have to live as if you have the cancer as well.”

What did you make of Vicki and Tamra’s comments in the finale?
It’s really disappointing. I feel like the women didn’t give me — in particular Tamra and Vicki — didn’t give me the opportunity to show them what was really going on between me and Jeff and the love we shared and what the true story was. Unfortunately, they just wanted to believe what they believe. At the end of the day, I know I can’t really help what other people are going to say about me and I’m just going to try and be the same person that I would be in any situation.

What did you make of their allegations that you copied them or stalked them by wanting to have a motorcycle like Tamra or drink the same thing as Vicki?
It’s absolutely hilarious. I have a lot bigger things going on in my life. My fiancé was dying of cancer. They acted like I sat around every week just watching to see what Tamra and Vicki had on the show. Last time I checked, I didn’t know that Tamra had the patent on pink, and last time I checked, I didn’t know that the dirty martini was an abnormal drink.

Are you now friends with Vicki and Tamra?
I would like to be friends with them and I think that if they gave me the opportunity to get to know me better that they would see me in a different light. But at this point they would not be somebody that I would call a friend.

Will you do another season of The Real Housewvies of Orange County?
You’re going to have to watch and see what happens.
