“Real Housewives of O.C.” Gretchen Rossi’s Fiancee Passes Away
In “better late than never news,” the newest member of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County” has lost her fiancee, Jeffrey Beitzel, to leukemia. Gretchen Rossi, who is thirty-years-old, attended the funeral services for her late fiancee on September 13. Beitzel was 54-years-old. He is survived by Rossi and his four children.
It is terribly sad that he passed away so suddenly. I have seen the commercials for the upcoming season and it appears that Rossi’s relationship with Beitzel is going to be a major part of the show. I also recall her saying in a clip that he was diagnosed with leukemia and that taking care of him was very difficult.
The fourth season of the show premieres on Bravo on November 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Update (2/18): The death of Jeffrey Beitzel has elicited a huge response from “Real Housewives” viewers. I encourage you to post a comment, but I ask you to refrain from using foul and/or sexually explicit language in regard to Gretchen or any of the other housewives. If I notice this kind of language, the comment will either be edited or deleted. Thank you.
