Real housewife Gretchen Rossi posted on her Bravo blog that she is not just a idle realty star resting on her stiletto-heeled laurels, but a hard worker who aims to create an empire for herself.
Gretchen has already launched her makeup line, Gretchen Christine Beaute (that's pronounced beau-tay, y'all), which has not been without controversy, and has mentioned plans to develop fashion and lingerie lines too.
According her website:
"I've been working on a very exciting new project for over a year now, and I am so excited to share the news with all my fans very very soon! It's been something you guys continue to request from me regarding my fashion!"Like her fellow Real Housewife Ramona Singer who parlayed her reality fame into a jewelry collection on HSN, sources say Gretchen's exciting news is a new fashion collections launching on ShopNBC.
Since controversy follows Gretchen wherever she goes, in the very least she'll probably spice up ShopNBC and bring it out of it's watch-show doldrums.
