Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Gets Nasty

Originally posted 06/03/2011 08:55AM



"I don't think the way this went down was treated with class or dignity," says Donn, Vicki Gunvalson's estranged husband, of the reunion show for The Real Housewives of Orange County's sixth season.

Indeed!

Between the screaming, the tears and the eye-rolling, there's going to be plenty of insults and accusations – all of which can be seen in a just-released, minute-long trailer for the upcoming episodes.

Tamra Barney, whose troubles with her ex and a new romance have been documented on the show, seems to be at the center of the storm.

Why Real Housewife Gretchen Is Not Rushing to the Altar with Slade

Gretchen Rossi Is Not Rushing to the Altar with Slade Smiley

Originally posted 04/03/2011 02:35PM

There will be no wedding bells just yet for Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley – and she's fine with that.

"By the time I was 30, I had lived three lives," the Real Housewives of Orange County star, 33, told PEOPLE at Bravo's upfront presentation in Los Angeles. "I'd already been married and divorced, and got engaged again just to lose him to cancer."

And although Rossi is head over heels for Smiley, 37, the fear of failure is keeping the blonde beauty from tying the knot for a second time.

"When I first got married, I thought I was going to be married for life," she said. "I thought that was it and it was really hard to fail at that marriage."

Real Housewives Star Gretchen Has Good & Bad Days Since Fiance's Death

Originally posted 02/24/2009 12:00AM

In the season finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County, viewers learned that Gretchen Rossi's fiancé Jeff had lost his battle with cancer. Ahead of Tuesday's reunion show, PEOPLE spoke with Rossi on the phone to find out how she's doing now, what she thinks of the comments from Housewives Vicki and Tamra that she's attention hungry and a stalker, if she'll do another season of Housewives – and whether she's riding that red hot Harley-Davidson.

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.

What's your support system?
I have a really great family. They've been the ones that have been my main support system and I have a large group of friends that have really been there for me and have helped me through a lot of things as well. I've also had a lot of opportunities to distract myself from what went on and one of those things is a huge honor ... The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as nominated me as one of the women of the year for 2009. It's a fun competition between all of the candidates to see who can raise the most money. And I'm going to be starting a foundation in Jeff's name. So that's been something that's really allowed me to keep Jeff's memory alive.
