Gretchen Rossi Reveals What It Would Take To Get Her Back On The Real Housewives Of Orange County!

Gretchen Rossi reveals what it would take for her to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County.

The mother-of-one told HollywoodLife that she would consider returning to the Bravo hit reality series, but it “would depend on the cast and [Andy Cohen] knows the specific cast member that I do not want to be on camera with again.”

While she didn’t reveal any names, it was obvious that she was referring to Tamra Judge, who she still feuds with from time to time via the press of social media.

Gretchen said a decision to return would also depend on “the financial side of it”. She explained, “It’s funny because even last night I was talking to [my fiancé] Slade [Smiley] and I was like, ‘You know what? Our businesses are doing really well. We’re at such a good place right now in our life and I don’t even know at this point if even the money would draw me back.’ It’s just, unfortunately, such a toxic environment. I just remember my stomach turning every week before [I] would go on. Every week, there’s some GIF about me, some article written about me, somebody being cruel, some cyber bullying going on and I’m not even on the show anymore. I don’t know if I’m excited about subjecting myself to that audience and that fan base because they love to hate you. Fifty percent love you and fifty percent hate you.”

Rossi says she has been approached to return to the show — multiple times. “A couple seasons after I left, they had called a couple of times and they were like, ‘Do you want to come back?’ and I was like, ‘Pay me $5 million,’ and they were like, ‘Are you serious?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m serious!’ and they were like, ‘OK, we’ll talk to you later!’ So it’s one of those things where it would have to be really stupid money, where all of my friends and family would have to be like, ‘Gretchen, this is stupid to say no.’ It would take probably a lot and I just don’t think the network’s at that place where they want to do that.”

She continued, “[They asked me to come back] the season right after I left, and I think we were talking two seasons right after that again. I don’t even know what season that would’ve been. There’s been some conversations, for sure,” she told HollywoodLife.

Gretchen added that some of the current cast members are worried about the show’s future, which is currently on hiatus.

“Here’s the thing,” she said. “I’m curious what’s even going to happen with Orange County because normally, they start filming in February and normally, the show’s almost in the can and they’re talking about airing it and air dates right now around this time. I’m still friends with some of the girls on the current cast and they’re like, ‘We don’t know what’s happening. We don’t know what’s going on,’ so it’s like in my mind I’m like, ‘Are they even going to bring back Orange County or are they going to transfer it to the Peacock like they did Miami or are they doing a new show to replace Housewives?’ All these things start going through your head because 15 seasons is a lot of seasons and I think the audience — as much as they love it — they’ve seen a lot of the storylines and they’ve seen a lot of the stuff that goes on. I still think there’s some pretty fabulous people in Orange County that they could have on the show, but they tend to not like that as much I feel like. I think they like a lot of the dysfunction more than the fabulous, so I don’t know! I think it will be interesting to see what shakes out for the future with Orange County.”
