Is Gretchen Rossi the next Bethenny Frankel?
In addition to the Mexican strippers and Vicki’s bed wetting accident, last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County featured plenty of products from Rossi’s Gretchen Christine fashion and beauty brand.

“I wonder if there’s any Gretchen Christine products in there,” Vicki said sarcastically to the camera when the scene cut to her in a one-on-one interview. “Yes, there is.”
