Star‘s sources say Rossi got in trouble with producers during the just-finished season 8 because of her lack of storyline. And as Star previously reported, she even made up her engagement to Slade Smiley to stay relevant on the show. But sources say it didn’t work!
Gretchen sobbed on the reunion show in August after her co-stars asserted that her engagement was phony.
Meanwhile, Bellino was already axed from the show before season 8, but was brought back at the last minute when a new cast member dropped out, sources told Star.
