JUNE 2011. Gretchen dishes on the past two episodes and her relationship with Slade. A lot of you have been asking for an update on Slade and I and to address all the rumors about an engagement etc. No engagement as of yet, but what I can tell you is that we are extremely happy, content, and in love! He is my partner in every aspect of my life, and I feel so blessed to have him in my life. I thank all of you who support our love and our relationship. We obviously have external factors that create issues, but I have hope and pray we can work through them. I also want to thank everyone who continues to pray for Grayson and his condition. He sincerely needs those prayers every day. He is not getting better at this point, and it has been very difficult on everyone involved. We have had such an overwhelming response to the charity event we were planning for July 14th, that we have decided to move it out to a further date to be determined. Since it has gotten so big, we are looking for more sponsors and have to get permits to expand the venue into the parking lot of the Victor Paul Salon! If you are interested in attending please look for updates on my site, Facebook, and Twitter.

I really want to say thank you to everyone that has been so supportive over these past three seasons as I continue to share all of my life with you, the good, the bad, and the ugly. It is hard to share every aspect of my life at times, but it has taught me a lot about myself, what I want to change or make better, what I like most about myself and my life, and what I truly stand for. I am grateful for that. I am grateful for the challenges and heartache at times, because it has built character and strength in me that I didn’t even know I had. I am constantly getting asked questions about my hair, my make-up looks, and my fashion, so I wanted to let you guys know of a few people that helped me look my best this season. Hasti Kashfia helped style some of the great looks I wore this season, which included many looks from the amazing designer Azadeh Couture (www.azadehcouture.com). Thank you Hasti, Azadeh, and her team for making me always look great for the many events and red carpets I did this season. Thank you to my dear friend and amazing hair stylist Victor Paul, who always makes my hair color and style look amazing! Visit www.victorpaulsalon.com to make an appointment. Although I love my make-up and think I know how to apply it pretty well, sometimes having someone else apply it makes it even better! Karina from Flawless Faces did my make-up for many of my interviews this season and some of the bigger Housewife events (visit her at www.flawlessfaces.com for an appointment as well).

Heather Gerber from Tantalizing Tan always makes my skin look great with her amazing technique for the perfect tan! (visit www.tan-talizingtan.com to make an appointment.)

On a personal note my businesses continue to grow and expand as I continue to work hard and make them better. I am thrilled about a new partnership I have engaged in with a large company that approached me from New York to take the Gretchen Christine Brand to the next level! My dreams of expanding this collection into all things you can find in your closet are one step closer. I am excited for the new collections that we will be offering under the Gretchen Christine brand, including a new handbag collection coming soon. It looks like we will be expanding to shoes next! Shop NBC has invited me back and some other home shopping networks as well, so be sure to follow me on Twitter (@gretchenrossi) and Facebook (facebook.com/gretchenrossi) to find out details of when and where we will be offering these collections. There is so much in store for the fans and the customers as we continue to listen to your requests and suggestions. I feel so blessed to be working in the spaces of fashion and beauty and that I love so much and have such a passion for. I love working and being a woman entrepreneur, I love empowering woman to go after their dreams and goals! Speaking of that did everyone see that fellow Housewife Bethenny Frankel was on the cover of Forbes magazine! I was so happy and proud for her when I saw that! Congrats to her for all her hard work paying off and being recognized as one of the top entrepreneurs! What an honor!
