News flash: “The Real Housewives of Orange County’s” Gretchen Rossi is a millionaire and Lynne Curtin is homeless…almost.
TMZ is all atwitter over its report that Gretchen, who has been spotted numerous times with ex-“Real Housewives” star Slade Smiley, has inherited $2.5 million from her deceased fiance, Jeff Beitzel.
According to the tabloid site, Gretchen’s reward (after all, she did stand by his side during his cancer treatments and did seem to legitimately care for him) includes money from Jeff’s life-insurance policy. In addition, TMZ contends that Jeff’s ex-wives – of which there are five – aren’t pleased she’s now rolling in the dough.
If Gretchen is as thoughtful and considerate as she seems to be, maybe she’ll be willing to throw a bone to fellow housewife Lynne, who TMZ reports is getting kicked out of the rented home she shares with her husband and daughters.
TMZ cites sources who claim that Lynne and her husband never paid over $12,000 to their landlord, who claims they owe him rent and other expenses. The Curtins reportedly have until tomorrow (that’s Aug. 27) to pack up and vamoose.
