Jay Photoglou Claims He Was Still Dating Orange County Housewife Gretchen While Husband Was Dying

Have you been watching The Real Housewives of Orange County? If not, it's okay, because the real drama from the show is happening off camera rather than on. Gretchen Rossi, a newcomer to the show this season, was in a relationship on the show with multi-millionaire Jeff Beitzel, who had leukemia and passed away last September. The rumor now is that while Gretchen was taking care of Jeff during the day, she was spending her nights with a guy named Jay Photoglou. Here's the story from the National Enquirer:

Gold-digging Gretchen Rossi was an on-camera Florence Nightingale to her dying millionaire fiancĂ© — but the Real Housewives of Orange County hottie had a secret boyfriend all along, according to Jay Photoglou, the man who claims to have been her undercover lover.

“I was Gretchen’s REAL boyfriend,” Photoglou told The ENQUIRER. “She spent her days at the hospital with her dying fiancĂ©, but her nights with me.”

On the popular reality show, 31-year-old Gretchen became engaged to multimillionaire Jeff Beitzel – and several episodes focused on her devotion to the leukemia victim, who died last Sept. 13.

But Jay, 39, says Gretchen was playing for the cameras — and that he recently called off their relationship.

Jay says he and Gretchen began dating in January 2008, and “for the next year we spent most nights together.

“She told me she used to date Jeff, but they were no longer intimate. He was diagnosed in December 2007 and asked her to nurse him back to health. Gretchen’s only job was to take care of him.”

Gretchen told The ENQUIRER: “Jay and I had a short-lived relationship before Jeff and I started dating.” But she called his cheating accusations “ridiculous” and added they were “disrespectful to me and the memories of Jeff.”
