Gretchen Rossi's relationship with late fiancé Jeff Beitzel has been a major source of drama on Real Housewives of Orange County over the years. However, despite the rumors of Gretchen's alleged infidelity while she was with Jeff, Gretchen has been able to maintain a close relationship with one of Jeff's daughters.
Gretchen took to Instagram on December 30 to post a photo of herself and Slade Smiley with Jeff's daughter Jill and Jill's boyfriend. As you may recall, Jeff and Gretchen were engaged when he passed away from leukemia in 2008 at age 54.
"So great to hang out with Jill (my late fiancé Jeff's daughter) & her boyfriend Dave all day!" Gretchen captions the cute pic. "I'm so proud of the woman she's become." Awww!
The holidays are a perfect time to reconnect with family and loved ones, so it's great that Gretchen and Jill are still able to stay close.
We don't blame you if you're a bit surprised that Gretchen and Jill still hang out. In 2009, Jill was asked by Crushable whether she believes that Gretchen cheated on her dad with Jay Photoglou, and Jill responded: "I do believe that [Gretchen and Jay] had a thing, but I don’t really care. My dad loved Gretchen, but I’m almost certain he never would have married her." Hmm.
Are you surprised that Gretchen keeps in touch with Jeff's daughter?
