Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi was all smiles as she celebrated the launch of the new parody book, The Burn Cookbook — despite the fact that she's agreed to testify against her former co-stars in a defamation case.
Gretchen, 39, wore a black and white dress to the event and posed in photos with her boyfriend, Slade Smiley, 44.
Both Gretchen and Slade have agreed to testify against Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge, accusing the reality stars of defaming Alexis' ex-husband Jim Bellino. Alexis and Jim filed for divorce earlier this year.
Not long after news broke about their divorce, Jim sued Shannon, 54, and Tamra, 51, accusing them of spreading lies about his "fake divorce" and that customers at his trampoline business had been paralyzed, in addition to claims that "he’s going to jail."
Jim, 56, who is seeking damages in excess of $1 million, filed paperwork on Monday, according to The Blast, claiming he was contacted by Slade. The reality TV star told him he and Gretchen wanted to help him in his lawsuit against Tamra and Shannon, providing "testimony regarding the anger, hostility and ill-will that Defendants harbor with respect to Bellino."
Per the documents, Slade also allegedly claimed that he and Gretchen could provide evidence "the Defendants have a pattern of making up stories to create notoriety for themselves in the media."
