Gretchen Rossi Ordered to Court, Must Pay Jay Photoglou

Gretchen Rossi was almost placed in handcuffs yesterday, but not for the reasons this dirty Real Housewife probably would like.

After failing Rossi failed show up for a court appearance on Thursday, a judge issued a bench warrant for her arrest. However, he held it for a week and ordered the reality star to show up on Thursday, April 29.

From what does this mess stem? Rossi was scheduled to be in court for a debtor examination related to money she owes ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou. The cash results from a lawsuit she filed against him that was thrown out.

Since then, Photoglou has sued the Real Housewife of Orange County for slander.

A judge awarded Jay $18,900 and Photoglou wants to collect.

“A lawyer from the firm Gretchen hired showed up in court and asked for a continuance because Gretchen’s lawyer was unavailable,” said Jay’s lawyer, Orlando Castano Jr. “Gretchen didn’t show up and the judge then issued a bench warrant for her arrest, holding it to give them the opportunity for her to come to court. She must show up next Thursday at 8:30 a.m.”
