Gretchen Rossi Calls Herself 'The White Oprah' On New Show 'Marriage Boot Camp'

How long can you keep up the storyline that says you want to get married and have babies, but your deadbeat boyfriend/fiancee doesn't? Apparently forever:
Just minutes after meeting their castmates on WE TV’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars (premiering tonight at 9 p.m. ET), controversial former Real Housewives of Orange County couple Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley begin ruffling feathers.

In’s exclusive preview clip, the aspiring singer— who was booted off her Bravo hit series after bitter clashes with her well-heeled costars— announces to new Boot Camp castmates Traci Braxton and her husband of 17 years, Kevin Surrat, that she’s the “White Oprah.”

“So what’s your guys’ story?” she asks the couple. “I am literally the white Oprah. I will ask you every question under the sun 86 times over and over and over again.”

In their confessional, Braxton, 42, and Surrat begin mocking Rossi, 35.

“She was talking like this, really nasally,” says the Braxton Family Values star, imitating the bubbly blonde. “I didn’t watch the show, so I didn’t know who you guys were…”

“I was like, ‘Who is this?’” asks a perplexed Surrat.

Later, Smiley, 40, says he was excited to meet Braxton and Surrat— because he’s friends with her Grammy-winner older sister.

“I am a fan of Traci. I know her sister Toni,” he boasts.

“You know, know her?” Braxton asks skeptically.

“Well, I know her music!” the radio host counters.
