Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow got into it with Gretchen Rossi on Monday’s episode regarding Gretchen lying about turning down a role from ‘Malibu Country.’ Heather took to her Bravo blog to talk about Gretchen getting so defensive and calls out Lauri for the drama she has caused since coming back onto the show
“The bus ride to Whistler. . .I had high hopes for the trip when they told me there was champs on the bus. Apparently I was wrong.
When I announced to the group that I would be leaving Whistler early and why, Alexis and Gretchen’s reactions were frustrating and a little hilarious. As you can see, I told Gretchen the same thing I told the girls at dinner the previous week. I didn’t say anything at that dinner that I wouldn’t have said directly to Gretchen. Had she stayed for dinner I would have told her then.
This whole bus trip is exactly what bothers me about some of the ladies. Completely ungenerous and competitive.
I was aware that casting had called Gretchen, Alexis, and a handful of other ladies to check availability for a small walk-on role, which ended up getting written out of the show.
No one denies that Gretchen was contacted to check her availability. The problem comes to the difference of being “offered” and “turned down.” Gretchen used the excuse of this show to try and manipulate Tamra into disinviting Alexis from wedding dress shopping. It’s not true.
I’m actually sorry I had the information. I wasn’t probing anyone. It was an honest question and when the casting director answered it wasn’t a big deal. I certainly didn’t act “unprofessionally” as Gretchen said in her last blog. This particular casting director is someone I have known for years. Gretchen’s reaction to this whole thing is so big and defensive — wonder why?”
As for Lauri, Heather continues,
“I have to say as sorry as I was about leaving the trip early, I was very glad to miss the drama on the mountain. I am really just so disgusted about the way Lauri has chosen to come back to this group. My understanding is she was not this way before.?I did love how Alexis, Lydia , and Tamra were making snow angels while the drama ensued. Lauri was trying to make trouble for trouble’s sake.”
Do you think Heather was being to hard on Gretchen? Or do you understand where Heather was coming from?
