Gretchen Rossi, former cast member of the Real Housewives of Orange County, is opening up about her IVF story, the struggles of getting pregnant and more in a brand new interview.

“Many celebrities in Hollywood glamorize the ability to have babies way up into your late 40s and the truth is that some of them are not telling the full story,” Rossi told PEOPLE. “A lot of women in their 40s are getting pregnant using an egg donor and not disclosing this.
