Former star of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gretchen Rossi, has spoken out about the show and it looks like the actress is still a bit miffed about leaving on an unpleasant note.
Rossi was once in the thick of the drama on The Real Housewives of Orange County but she got fired in 2013, according to Radar Online.
The actress, in a recent interview with tooFab.com, slammed the show:
\"We\'re really happy to be away from the negativity and how toxic it was,\" she said.
\"As a woman, I am really about empowering other women so it just was not that kind of forum for me anymore,\" she added. \"I couldn\'t be who I was in my everyday life on that show, so it made it very difficult. It became a big contradiction in my life.\"
Rossi, who is engaged to her former RHOC co-star, Slade Smiley further said she\'s not even watching the current RHOC season, starring Judge, Vicki Gunvalson, and Heather Dubrow.
\"When I walked away from that, I don\'t want to go back to watching it because it gets me all upset,\" she said. \"It provokes these emotions of frustration.\"
With RHOC behind them, Rossi and Smiley are looking at making a mark through reality TV.
The pair will appear on WE tv\'s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars later this week. The couple also revealed that there may be a reality show which solely focuses on their relationship in the works too.
\"Well, actually we have already been offered [a show]. So a couple of people have been talking with us about it and we just really aren\'t sure. It\'s a big decision to make and it\'s a hard thing to carry your own show. We know people want to see the wedding, but I just don\'t want our special day to be wrecked,\" she explained.
\"So it would have to be with the right group of people and the right production company. I\'m not saying it needs to be a bowl of cherries because that\'s not life. I just don\'t need Slade to be portrayed as a d-bag on the day of our wedding because that\'s not who he is. \'Housewives\' loved to do that,\" she added.
New episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 airs tonight, June 2 on Bravo.
