Gretchen Rossi Sets The Record Straight On Alleged Feud With Tamra Barney [VIDEO]

'RHOC' At The Grove
The girls from Orange County head to LA.
Gretchen Rossi spoke to CNN about a nasty rumor floating around the interweb, which involves Tamra Barney, Slade Smiley and an engagement ring (on Bravo’s dime).

TMZ reported on Monday (March 19th) that the network initially approached Smiley with the idea that he’d propose to Rossi for The Real Housewives Of Orange County’s season finale.  Smiley was said to decline the offer of a ring and tropical location, reasoning that the public hated him enough without such a story.  Bravo then offered the package to Barney, who “instantly snatched up the proposal package,” according to the site.

Barney and boyfriend Eddie Judge got engaged earlier this month while in Bora Bora.
