LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney (RHOC) are leading Bravo Housewives endeavors even post-season. Rossi and Barney are joined by co-stars Alexis Bellino and Vicki Gunvalson, along with fellow Bravo star Nene Leakes (RHOA), who all dominated news this week for business launches even after their Bravo cameras stopped rolling for the season.
In previous years, a Bravo Housewife, at least for viewers, seemed to become enthralled with businesses during Bravo seasons. But for Rossi to Leakes, Barney to Bellino, the business endeavors this year appear to have skyrocketed post-season.
In February, LALATE exclusively reported that Gretchen Rossi new song Unbreakable that will team her with a major producer. While RHOC has finished filming new episodes this season, Rossi this week debuted the single.
LALATE can report the man behind the single is Jean-Yves. In 2004 he was nominated at the Latin Grammys for Producer of The Year. His credits have included work with Carlos Santana, Tupac Shakur, The Game, Nicole Sherzinger, Paulina Rubio, and Luis Fonsi.
Also since RHOC cameras have stopped rolling, Rossi’s boyfriend Slade Smiley has found a new hit with his radio program, Radio Slade, on Southern California radio 92.7 FM. Slade has been a part of the Bravo franchise since 2004, far before any of the current RHOC cast members.
Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson’s Wines by Wives has drawn critical praise from fans since its recent launch this Spring. Alexis Bellino and husband Jim Bellino has debuted their new business, Sky Zone Anaheim, at 1301 N. Kellogg in Anaheim, CA. Alexis told fans this week that the project is the “world’s largest indoor trampoline park” adding that it’s the “the 2nd happiest place on Earth.” Demand has been great for the venue, reportedly completely sold out on June 19 according to its Facebook profile.
And finally, NeNe Leaks is dominating Hollywood news for her ensemble role on the “New Normal”, coming to NBC this fall. The show from Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler (Glee, Chuck, No Ordinary Family) also stars Ellin Barkin, Andrew Rannells (Book of Mormon) and Justin Bartha (The Hangover).
