Expect a real courtroom drama for GRETCHEN ROSSI and her “Real Jay and I had a short-lived relationship BEFORE Jeff and I dated.”. This season -- following the death of her fiance, Jeff -- viewers have seen Rossi try It was always nice to be in a relationship with someone who was well off at the .. I said my prayer to Jeff and God before I walked out there. When Jeff suggested the incident sounded 'suspect' Gretchen agreed, Slade, 44 - who already has two children from a previous relationship - had his .. metal T-shirt insulting Jesus - but the rapper says she has no regrets.
You feel like why them, and not me? You go through so many emotions of second guessing everything in your life.
It has taken me a lot of time to recognize that it wasn't my choice or anything I did.
Gretchen Rossi Shares Heartfelt Message 6 Years After Jeff Beitzel’s Passing
It was ultimately God's decision and I couldn't of done anything different to change the outcome. Slowly but surely you start to gain back who you are and feel OK about being happy again. Since Slade and I have been friends for over eight years we have a very playful banter between us. I tease him quite often as he does me, thus some of the footage at the pool with the towels etc.
Slade has also become my best friend and we spend so much time talking and just discussing everything about life. I was explaining how different life has been since losing Jeff, including my financial situation.
I used to be the best bargain shopper on the planet, and then Jeff came into my life and spoiled me rotten with diamonds, the best cars, purses, designer clothes etc. I always told Jeff he didn't need to do those things, but he just loved doing them for me.
It is a harsh reality when you no longer have access to what you once had. Those material things never defined me, thank goodness, but it is humbling when you can no longer afford extravagant things. I have had to start from scratch again building up my businesses.
I was a very self-sufficient woman before I meet Jeff. I made a lot of money selling real estate in a very hot market place. I bought my own home and was very proud of all I had accomplished as a young 26 year old.
I never imagined that I would fall in love with a man that would get cancer. I didn't plan to stop working and making the money I did to take care of him fulltime. I didn't know he was going to lose his battle and I would be left with almost nothing and have to start from scratch. This was a hard lesson for me and I am dealing with the heartache and pain not only of losing Jeff, but losing a lot of what I worked so hard to have before I met Jeff. You see my struggle this season financially to get back on my feet.
The good news is that I am a survivor and I will work through it. I was blessed with a brain and a strong work ethic which you will see this season.
It's also interesting to see that despite the way the women treated me last year I still don't like to hear anyone say mean or bad things about them, including Slade. I tell him he is being mean or needs to stop with his harsh remarks.
I found myself doing that a lot this season with Slade. He has a lot of opinions about the way the women treat me and he has no tolerance for their behavior at times. He thinks I am way too nice and forgiving. He is very matter of fact, and I always want to find a reason why someone did something or make an excuse for why they are treating me the way they are. It can be a good thing sometimes and other times it can be a detriment. I just love Alexis! Thank God for her!
We laugh and have the best time together whether it is at spin class, lunch, shopping or just sitting and talking as good girlfriends. She and I have a lot in common and I think that is why we hit it off so well. I have come to know that Alexis will have your back on everything, she is loyal, and a very true friend. As I said before, it is hard to find friends like that, so I am so thrilled she joined the cast this season. We knew each other cause of a mutual friend but only spent a little time together.
Now due to the show we spend a lot of time together and have become very good friends talking almost daily and it is so nice to have a true friend on the cast. I just love her husband Jim as well, they are such a great couple and they balance each other out perfectly. Slade and Jim have become good friends as well and I look forward to you guys seeing our relationship unfold. La Perla was a fun night and the ironic part is that Tamra and I always seem to have a fun time together.
I never had a problem with Tamra until she had a problem with me. I always thought she was fun and silly and she made me laugh with her one-liners.
Unfortunately she constantly says I dragged her into my situation, but I never did. The guy who called her did. She could have easily said, "I don't know who you are and I don't want to be involved," but unfortunately she did not, and therefore it has caused a lot of headaches between us.

The moral of the story is: Stay out of other people's business. I have seen first hand enough about Tamra and Simon's relationship to have an opinion, and I also have heard a lot about them, but it was never my place to discuss it or pass judgment. It's just not who I am as a person.
I believe Tamra and I ultimately don't want the drama anymore between us, it seems everyone else is more willing to keep it going.
I can only hope she was sincere when she told me recently she was sorry for what happened and that she regrets a lot of the things she said or did last year.
I choose to believe her because I want to get past it and move forward with life, because as I know all too well, life is too short! La Perla was a fun night overall, and I love lingerie! Wow - they are fun and vivacious woman with class and character like you wouldn't believe. I would spend time with them in Atlanta all day long. We have kept in touch by phone since the awards and I feel like I have a whole other group of friends now.
During the show there was an opportunity to vote by text or online for your favorite fashion show outfit! I really enjoyed going to Fred Segal and hanging out with all the other ladies from the other towns to shop for the day! Some of the women played nice, some not so nice, and some even cheated on the price point, but oh well!
I thought my outfit was fun and young and I had a good time showing it off on the catwalk!

After I lost Jeff, it was a hard realization that I had to get back to making a life of my own. I spent almost a year in the hospital taking care of Jeff and therefore was not out making money like I was before.
That is a very scary thing to face, now all alone with no income coming in. I was struggling every day to try and make sense of what I was going through. But I am coming out of it and I am working so hard to get back on my feet again. I have always been a self-sufficient woman and I know I will be again. It just takes a lot of dedication, time, energy and work to make it happen. I bought my own home and in these tough economic times the last thing I want to do is lose the asset I worked so hard for!
