Former Housewife Of Orange County Gretchen Rossi Reveals Her Baby Plans!
Gretchen Rossi has great hopes for 2018 and is not giving up on her dream to become a mother.
The reality TV star who has been engaged to Slade Smiley since 2013 revealed in a recent interview that she will undergo IVF again to try for a baby.
Slade, who has two children from a previous relationship had his vasectomy reserved in an effort to have a child with Gretchen. The couple have also gone through IVF in the past which unfortunately resulted in a negative result.
However this time round Gretchen is optimistic things will be different. “We have had good feedback from our doctors about our bodies and ‘God willing’ I can get pregnant in 2018,” Gretchen said. “I know that Slade and I would make great parents because we both love kids and I feel like I am a great mom to our three dogs, so, let’s give it a shot.”
The year has gotten off to a great start for Gretchen. She has finally received a judgement in her defamation case that has been going on for eight years! Gretchen was awarded $523,250 in damages after she sued Jay Photoglou for defamation in 2010 after she claimed he lied about her cheating on her late fiancé Jeff Beitzel with him. She also claimed that he threatened her and stole her personal property, including nude photos that were released online. “I decided enough was enough and to stand up against this individual,” she said. “I fought this fight not only for myself, but for all the women out there who have been harassed or threatened and for those who were too afraid to speak up, or could not have their voice heard. For those who did not have the financial means to fight, and for those who have been hurt or damaged because of individuals who think this is okay to do this to women.”
As well as being on the baby making train, Gretchen is also continuing to focus on her line of handbags and accessories, Gretchen Christine, which she wants to “really expand in 2018 after being bought over by a larger company. We are going to do more handbags, make-up and beauty products in 2018, it is such an exciting time for me professionally and I feel very blessed,” she said.
