Exclusive: Jeff Beitzel’s Daughter Speaks Out on the Gretchen Rumors ["Real Housewives of Orange County"]

Jill, the daughter of Jeff Beitzel was nice enough to talk to me about how the recent revelations of Gretchen’s alleged infidelity to her dad have affected her and her family.  Here’s what she had to say:

1) As far as Gretchen’s portrayal on RHOC that she was a devoted caretaker, always there for him, etc, was that accurate as far as you and your family knew?

Gretchen was the only one my dad had out in California all the time so yes she was a devoted caretaker, but when she had time off because other people were out there she definitely caught up with going out.

2) Are you and anyone in your family still in touch with her?
Jake, Lizzy, and I all still talk to her.

3) How have you guys held up against all these new revelations that she may have been cheating on your dad while he was in the hospital?

Jake has been having a lot of issues with the speculations being made. All I know is what Gretchen has told me which was that Jay was a good friend who she had seen a ways back, my dad never liked that guy and obviously for a good reason.

I do believe that they had a thing but I don’t really care, my dad loved Gretchen but I’m almost certain he never would have married her. I think Jay is a selfish manipulative jerk, and just wants the exposure from the story. He doesn’t give a rats ass that when he degrades Gretchen he is also degrading my father, and that makes things a lot harder for our family to be okay with. I hold a lot of resentment for people who only care about themselves and never think about the consequences of their actions. He is a sad excuse of a human being.

    Now this is an interview that I put weight behind. i don’t care what Gretchen, Jay or even Tamra say. but this child/woman has no ax to grind so I put credence in her word.

  • Kathy

    Tamra and Jay were in cohoots this whole time, they are both scumbags.

    Gretchen did nothing wrong plus she is single.

    Tamra is fugly, broke and just plain jealous. No wonder Simon is always hitting on Gretchen.

    Maria, People on the Bravo-owned Television Without Pity message boards are questioning the legitimacy of this post; they do not believe this interview comes from Jill.

    Stuff like that hurts Jill and accuses you of misrepresentation. Can you throw these dogs a bone and put this idiocy to bed?

    Jill, if you read this, ((((hugs))))

    Hi, thanks for letting me know. For whatever reason, my membership to the TwOp boards has never been approved and I still can not post, so if you can copy and paste my reply, that would be awesome.

    Here is the deal:
    Jill left a comment on my entry on Jen Beitzel being on Rock of Love Bus. I emailed her privately to thank her and express condolonces for her loss. She replied and offered to “set the story straight”, which is when I responded with those questions, which she answered promptly.

    As for the legitimacy of her post, I think her answers ring true. I can see all IP addresses of commenters here and her IP was in Michigan. She has also since made her myspace public so I do believe she is eager to speak to people about this situation.

    Finally, I am a professional writer and take pride in my work. This is not just a “fan site”; it’s published by a major blog network and we have contacts at Bravo. It’s a legit operation, I stand by the interview.

    Maria, thank you for your post and thank you to Jill for her candor.

    I hope Jill and her family finds the strength to ignore all the bitter, hateful, jealous people with agendas in this world and on the boards.

    Jill, I hope you and your siblings find peace with your father’s passing and I wish you all well. I know how hard it is.

  • potty mouth princess

    Thanks for the reply! :-)

  • Sindy

    Maria, great interview and thank you Jill for responding! I’m sure seeing people question your father and his character is VERY hard and I agree with you that these nutbags that started this nonsense before the season even started and KNEW that your father would unfortunately be taken from the world early have NO class and morals!

    Your dad was on camera proclaiming his love and appreciation of Gretchen and Gretchen appeared very authentic in her love and appreciation of him. I have NO doubt that they BOTH knew what each other was about.

    David Gilmore from Pretty on the Outside basically said he was contacted many time throughout the season from Tamra spreading her nonsense. I think two psychos got together to hurt both Gretchen AND your Dad…and it’s backfired on them!

  • BRENDA

    I THINK IT IS FUNNY HOW TAMMY SAID HOW DICUSTING IT WAS WHEN LYNNE AND GRETCHEN WAS DANCING IN VEGAS,BUT IT IS NOT HALF AS DISCUSTING AS HER PULLING DOWN SIMONS PANTS TELLING HIM TO SHOW HIS PUBES AND PLAYING WITH HIS BALLS IN FRONT OF HER SMALL KIDS AND EVERYONE ON THE BOAT,OH…AND WHAT ABOUT SIMON TELLING TAMMY HE WILL BUY A BOAT IF SHE GIVES HIM A B-JOB? TAMMY MAKES VICKIE LOOK LIKE A ANGEL!!

  • Get Real..

    I am sorry, but, I think Gretchen “snowed’ his kids. She only invited them when she wanted to “get out”/party/ after shoving her $65,000 ring in their faces? She acted all sweetsy/cutesy cheerleader, as she always does when she wants something.. then, she took off to party.. got upset when one of their Moms wanted to check up on Jeff after they told her he was alone most of the time? Maybe Gretchen was out drinking, prancing around in her bikinis with Jay there, hosting “burlesque” parties in her “peacock” outfit, buying sex toys at the spa, or shaking her butt at the track when she left Lynne and went next door to the neighbor’s box that she said was “more fun”.. or when she

    Get Real (Tamra),

    You are a moron! Jeff’s kids are quite intelligent and would never back her if she were a gold digger. If she were a gold digger she would have married him in the hospital, you are beyond stupid.

    Everyone knows that you are uneducated, unemployed and living in a trailer at this point because you are so broke. Why not get a job instead of sitting on your fat ass all day obsessing about Gretchen.

    She is rich, young and beautiful and has it all. You are not one tenth the woman she is.

  • otto

    I totally agree with jp, well said.

  • Jen

    So what is the problem? like I have been saying get off of Gretchens nuts. she was not married to this man. I am almost positive that he was a smart and wise man who did his research. He knew. His daughter hinted at how he disliked phoglue.lmao. Well then he knew about him. How are we going to be the morality poice on this situation when Jeff himself was not worried about it. Tamara needs to tone her shi yat down cause she is having money troubles. Gretchen still got her rock. Jeana need to mind her business too. She need to worry about shane and make sure he dont Chris Brown her romp. disrespectful tard he is. vicki needs to work on her love tank cause that will cause a domino effect and clear up all the other issues.lmao. Lynn need to puff puff pass and smile. Gretchen at the end of the day is going to come out of this unscathed because Jeff is dead. It just does not matter what she supposedly lied about. She was not the only one with skeletons in her closet. She just happened to be the lively hawt one. Live and let live.

    Hi Jill,

    I knew your Dad and Mom when I lived in Michigan (and I even met you once – you were very young) and your Dad was a super guy who valued his friendships! He did like the ladies and was very generous to whomever he was with at the time, so his generousity to Gretchen was no greater than to the other ladies before her. From my years of knowing him, he would not have given anyone any gifts or money he did not want to give them. Of course you already know all of this! We offer your my condolences, he was a great friend to my family and was generous in many ways to us as well…it was just his kind and giving nature. Yet knowing your Dad, if it was Gretchen (whom I never met) who died last year, I am sure your Dad would have dated very soon afterwards….he lived life to the fullest. The person Gretchen is with now does not hold a candle to your Dad, but it is not up to those of us who have never met her to judge her.
