After five years and running on the Real Housewives of Orange County, Gretchen Rossi says she "100 percent" would not have done the show if she knew what she was getting into, despite the perks of fame and exposure it has given her business.
"You think it's gonna be a bowl of cherries, and it's not," the exquisite entrepreneur told KTLA 5's Morning News from Los Angeles Monday, adding that there's "so many people scrutinizing your life," and an abundance of "haters" on social networking sites such as Twitter.
Rossi said her main goal in getting on the show was to promote her business -- which she's done successfully -- but certainly at the expense of her privacy.
On the flip-side, she said the one positive that's helped keep her going are her fans, who she said are very supportive and embracing.

"I would really prefer not to wear clothes if given a choice," the sexy O.C. Housewife confessed. "I'm comfortable in my own skin."
As far as what we'll be seeing of her on the show this season, Gretchen said she goes through a "really rough spot" in her relationship with (now) fiance Shade Smiley, as well as some good times.
