“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi has scored a massive payday in her endless lawsuit against he ex-BF — who she sued for defamation — because a jury just awarded her $500,000 … at least.
As we reported, Rossi sued her ex Jay Photoglou for defamation and other things back in 2010 — claiming he trashed her in the media.
It went back and forth forever, but today, a jury decided in Rossi”s favor — awarding her half a mil in damages. Jay got squat.
Gretchen may still get more money too if the jury decides to award her punitive damages as well.
