‘RHOC’ Star Gretchen Rossi Victorious in $9k Credit Card Legal Battle

“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi came out on top in the lawsuit accusing her of refusing to pay her credit card bill.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the debt collector suing the reality star over an alleged $9,000 credit card bill filed is dismissing the entire lawsuit.

All claims against Rossi are dismissed and the case is closed officially. The dismissal comes only weeks after the “RHOC” star demanded the case be tossed, claiming the $9k in charges were a result of a credit card breach.

Rossi said she was issued a Home Depot credit card in July 2014. The card had a $5,000 limit.

She claimed that months after opening the card, she was informed by her financial management company that her credit card was part of a Home Depot credit card breach. She was instructed to cease making payments on the card and was told that the breached account would be closed and a new card would be issued.

The “RHOC” star said despite being given this advice, she was hit with the lawsuit for charges and fees totaling over $9,000 on a card with a much lower limit.

Gretchen Rossi claimed the debt collector failed to provide her with evidence or supporting documents with her signature showing additional charges being approved by her.

She demanded the entire lawsuit be thrown out and the debt collector not be awarded a dime.

As The Blast first reported, the reality star was sued by a debt collection company for allegedly failing to pay up on the card. The lawsuit claimed she made payments up until January 2017 and then stopped, leaving an unpaid balance of $9,433.56.

Rossi’s fiancé, Slade Smiley, was even served with the legal docs for the lawsuit at the couple’s O.C. home.
