Usually, when a big story hits, I post on it right away (if I can) because I want to talk about it. On this one, I admittedly dragged. And the reason why is I am tired of this foolishness between Jay and Gretchen. In case you haven’t heard, Jay is suing Gretchen for libel. claiming she’s talked so much trash that it’s had an impact on his life. The only reason I can think Jay is doing this now is because the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion is taping this weekend, and it would seem timely and relevant for Andy to bring it up.
The whole thing seems destined to be thrown out: the fight between Gretchen and Tamra on last season’s reunion took up very little time. It was memorable, but when you ask most people what they know of that season, they will think of “Naked Wasted” or Vicki braying on about her love tank, not Jay.
That being said, the court documents don’t provide any new information for those of us who’ve been following this shit show since it started, except for revealing that fact that Gretchen and Jay attended “marriage workshop” courses at Saddleback Church in 2008, and that a ton of Jay’s stuff including 3 “Hugo Boos” suits is still at Gretchen’s house. The documents allege that Jay is now subject to “unfathomable amounts of public scorn.”
What do you think of this lawsuit? I’m dying to know!
Edit: A commenter brought up that Jay is not only suing Gretchen, but 50 unnamed co-defendants! The folks at Death by 1,000 Papercuts have more detailed analysis, but there’s pretty much nothing you can say that makes you sound like more of an unhinged crazy person than saying the word “conspiracy.”
