We reported this morning that there was a warrant out for Gretchen Rossi's arrest after she did not appear in court to battle things out with Jay Photoglou. That is a fact.
Then, we received word that the Real Housewives of Orange Country star is actually living it up in Sin City this weekend and was spotted several hours after the warrant was put out for her arrest sipping on a milkshake at the Paris. That is a fact.
But here's the new development. According to Gretchen's rep, who spoke to PerezHilton.com exclusively, this whole mess is "nothing more than Jay Photoglou's ongoing attempt to leak false information to the press."
Her rep explains:
"After Photoglou's previous attorney's dropped him last month, Jay and his new attorney set a conference date intentionally on a day they knew Gretchen would be out of town on an appearance. Gretchen's attorneys appeared on her behalf and the judge rescheduled the conference. A bench warrant is a standard part of the paper work. It is not an active warrant and only becomes active if one of the parties fails to appear on the new date. "
So the long and short of it is … drink up, Gretchen! No one wants to put you in jail. Except for maybe Jay!
