Gretchen Bonaduce Biography

As a biography, Gretchen Hillmer Bonaduce was born on September 24, 1965 in Waukegan, Illinois, so her age is 43. She lived in Phoenix booking psychics on various radio stations in the Valley of the Sun and it was there that she met her future husband, Danny Bonaduce. A blind date with him led to them marrying seven hours later.

Gretchen and Danny have two children – 14-year-old Isabella and 10-year-old Dante. Their family appeared on VH1’s Breaking Bonaduce, where the show followed Danny in his quest to stay sober.

Music has always been one of Gretchen’s passions, having sung in the school and church choirs while growing up. She currently performs with the Mudd Flaps and Ankhesenamen.

    She is so uninteresting. he is a train wreck but THAT is what makes reality TV interesting.

    We know he’s a loser but…she has been trying to get publicity by spewing venom. He is “the world’s worst husband”. He “brought home venereal diseases”. He “will be dead in 5 yrs”.

    gretchen, you don’t have to keep his name or cash those alimony checks, and i’m sure your kids will grow up just as well adjusted as your ex, reading such lovely things about their father…

    I listened to Danny’s radio show for years. Yeah, he is a train wreck, but I always tuned in to hear the latest.

    She, on the other hand, is just some chick who married a famous guy, and probably just because he was famous.

    I grew more and more annoyed with her over the years, as it was obvious this woman thought she was a celebrity in her own right, or at least really wanted to be.

    She rode on Danny’s wave of celebrity, then thought she was big enough herself to try it alone. I don’ think so.

    The show is lame, and frankly, I don’t think people really care too much about what she is up to….Which is why they will keep re-hashing her battles with Danny. Otherwise, nobody would watch.

    This deal with the young guy wanting her. I call BS. Gretchen, put on some clothes, you are a woman in her 40’s, and nobody wants to see you up on stage in your corset and underwear. Not a classy look for any woman, but especialy skeezy on someone well into her 40’s.

    Lastly, do not complain now about how you endured years of physical abuse and infidelity. You are a big girl, and you had children to protect. You should have been gone years ago if this was true. You stayed for the money!

    You need to forget about him, why keep going on his radio show and letting him make an ass of you when he is the loser, not you.

    Gretchen, listen, you owe that pathetic excuse for a man NOTHING, he is a big fat BULLY and he his still pushing your buttons because you are letting him, Do not say anything to him because it will not make a difference he only heres his own abusive voice. when you need to communicate to him write it down in duplicate and have proof of delivery or have your attorney do it. I was married to a ass just like him and they are excellent at turning the tables and making you stumble over your words because they want to villify you. He is shooting darts at you to bring you down to his level, it is called leveling. The best way to get back at him is to not here him, litterally.
    He is less than humain and it will be your life struggle to get him to understand, and it will not work, I know first hand. 37 years later and my ex for 28 years has not changed a bit except he drinks more. These type of people like to push and push and push to get want they want like a little kid. So heed my advice “DO NOT LISTEN, CLOSE YOUR EARS AND DO NOT RESPOND TO HIS WORDS, DO NOT UTTER A WORD,
    the less response he gets the more he will try some other way to get to you like your kids, so heads up woman and give him a stiff one up the ass!!

    gretchen is a a beautiful,sweet and talented person who was married to the ugliest,meanest,angriest, and truly revolting subhuman being in the entire universe. it is only the guys with the itsy bitsy penis’s that have to constantly prove how tough they are. i can’t imagine what nitwits watch danny bonaduce’s stupid show anyway. is it any wonder why gretchen never wanted to have sex with him…ugh!!!!!!! as for kevin he seems like a nice guy but he is almost as unfortunate looking as danny. she just got out of a long and unhappy marrige why would she want to hook up so quickly, i don’t get it. anyway i do enjoy her show and think she deserves all the respect for taking the high road. she didn’t look bad on dannys show he looked like the total ass that he is.
