Gretchen Rossi Rolls in Style (EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS)
The Real Housewives of Orange County star is teaming up with the luxury car brand in Newport Beach, Calif. for a specially commissioned collaboration of the 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost Gretchen Christine Edition, Celebuzz can exclusively reveal.
“They asked me to custom design a Rolls-Royce,” she said of her newest business endeavor based on her high-end handbag collection. “I never imagined I’d drive a car like this, let alone design it. I’ve always been a fan and enthralled by the beauty of the car.”
And like a true artist, the 33-year-old is making sure she’s entirely hands-on in the creative process.
“I’m headed to England to the factory to do the finishing touches,” she said.
So what are her must-have custom car accessories?
“I want to make the car for the 2013 working woman who also loves to have fun and lives in luxury,” she said.
Features include a place to hold champagne bottles and glasses, so a little bubbly is “chilled and ready to go,” Rossi said. But it isn’t all play for the busy television star.
“I can be working from my car — whether it’s on my iPad or computer — and I’d love to have a place for them in the back of the seats,” she said. “That’s my life. As people know who watch the show, I am a very hard worker and I love to play and have fun.”
“Everyone knows I love my pink. So it has to be involved somewhere,” Rossi said, adding that the custom car will be available for lease or purchase by this summer. “I want it to be sophisticated with touches of pink piping on the seats. Believe it or not, they can even take one of my nail colors or lipsticks and match them exactly to the colors on the car!”
As for Rossi’s fellow Housewives, she won’t leave them in the dust. Said Rossi: “They can all get in the car and I’ll take ‘em for a ride.”
