Jay Photoglou: Suing Gretchen Rossi for Slander

by at . Comments

According to Jay Photoglou, Gretch Rossi is more than a Real Housewife of Orange County.

She's also a real, giant, big, fat liar, reads a lawsuit filed this week.

The litigation stems from Rossi and Photoglou's supposed relationship. The photographer says he and Rossi began dating in 2008 and that she told him she was acting as a caregiver to her terminally ill “ex-boyfriend friend, Jeff Beitzel.”

However, once Gretchen landed a spot on the Bravo series, she denied she was involved with Jay and played up her relationship with Betzel.

The lawsuit claims that Rossi was “intimately involved with Photoglou the entire time the show filmed Rossi’s first season” and is charging the spoiled non-housewife for damaging his reputation by calling him a liar, a drunk and a thief. It cites libel and slander and five other counts.

This isn't the first time Gretchen has been involved in a scandal.

She's been caught posing nude online and she's planning a painful singing career. If Photoglou wins his lawsuit, perhaps he can put a gag order on Rossi's vocal chords. Forever.
