A judge in Newport Beach, California dropped a temporary restraining order Friday against Jay Photoglou who says he was the secret boyfriend of Gretchen Rossi, one of the stars of “The Real Housewives of Orange County”.
“Gretchen and her attorney were a no show in court today, they informed the court about 30 minutes prior to the scheduled hearing time that they weren’t going to attend,” Photoglou told the media.
Rossi claimed that Photoglou threatened to burn down her Costa Mesa home and kill her dogs, grabbed her hair and yanked her head back, made harassing phone calls, and vandalized her home and car. She said he also threatened to “dispose of” Slade Smiley, a former cast member of the Bravo reality TV series and Rossi’s current paramour.
Rossi denies she ever had a romantic relationship with Photoglou.
