Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi has spoken out about Peggy Sulahian’s firing after just one season on the show. And, even though the current cast may be secretly happy to see her go, Rossi says that Sulahian got the short end of the stick.
In an interview with Radar Online, Rossi said that when she watched reunion, she felt sad for the ousted reality star because she looked lost and the women on the show are tough. But, she did have some words of support for Sulahian.
“My advice to her would be to stay true to herself and her family because they are what really matters at the end of the day,” Rossi, 37 said.
RHOC producers fired Sulahian because she didn’t get along with the other women on the show and they felt her personal life was boring.

Meanwhile, Rossi is currently in talks to make a return to the show, reportedly asking for $750,000 to appear in season 13.
This would be bad news for her nemesis Tamra Judge, who finally ended her feud with Vicki Gunvalson, but now, she will have to deal with Gretchen Rossi and the drama she will bring. According to an insider, the two hate each other and will never make up.
The two have been at war for years, and it recently exploded again when Judge slammed Rossi for supporting her estranged daughter, Sydney Barney. Judge was in a social media fight with Barney, and Rossi stepped in to back up her daughter’s criticism.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, Barney – who is not an adult – alleged that Judge is a bad mother and accused her of neglect and emotional abuse. She said her mom continued to use her as a storyline, despite her repeated requests for her mother not to mention her. Barney also claimed that Judge misrepresents their relationship on the show, just to get sympathy from fans.

Rossi stepped in and had Barney’s back by writing how brave she was for speaking the truth. She also said that Judge had wronged many people through manipulation and lies.
Of course, Judge was furious and responded by calling Rossi a troll and saying that she usually doesn’t give her any attention because that’s what she is looking for. Judge added that Rossi has bashed her for years, but reaching out to her daughter made her the “biggest piece of s*** I’ve ever met.”
She concluded by saying that Rossi is obsessed with her family, and the two haven’t seen or spoken to each other in over five years. If Gretchen Rossi does come back to RHOC, sparks will surely fly between these two the moment they see each other again.
