They Met at a Bar
Joshua Ross, age 36, hails from De Leon, Texas, which is only a few hours away from Texas Stadium where Jeff Rohrer played for the Dallas Cowboys. Rohrer, who turns 60 on Christmas this year, is 23 years his senior.
California native, Rohrer, attended Yale University and was selected by the Cowboys in the 1982 NFL Draft. Ross was barely a baby back then. Interestingly, Rohrer didn’t reveal he was once a professional football player to Ross until months after they met.
Rohrer was in the closet his entire career and after retirement. But he chose to come out as gay in a New York Times exclusive. In the interview, he revealed that he met Ross in May 2015 at a tequila bar in West Hollywood, California.
Ross entered the spot and joined a group talking about college football as Rohrer listened in on the conversation. “This guy starts bragging about playing college football, and how he would have made it to the NFL if he hadn’t been injured, same old boring war stories,” Ross recalled. “Jeff just sat there, smiling and drinking, and let the guy go on and on.”
Ross and Rohrer began dating soon after. And after three years together, they will marry on Sunday at the Wattles Mansion Gardens in Los Angeles. The duo even revealed the matching Ferragamo tuxes they will wear on the big day.
While this will be Ross’ first marriage, Rohrer has been married once before. His first marriage ended in divorce more than a decade ago. Rohrer has a daughter, 15-year-old Isabella Rohrer, and a son, 14-year-old Dondillon Rohrer. Both children will be present at their father and Ross’ wedding.

Ross made an appearance on Bravo’s Below Deck in 2017. However, it wasn’t until his “Glam Circle” featured on RHOBH that everyone noticed him and his skincare magic.
Newly-inducted Real Housewife, Teddi Mellencamp, has been Ross’ longtime client and “muse.” When Teddi joined the show, she got her fellow Housewives to SkinLab.
Teddi came up with the idea of a “Glam Circle,” sort of like an in-house spa party. There was, of course, some drama that went down between Teddi and Dorit Kemsley. But Ross caught the attention of RHOBH viewers.
Along with Teddi, Ross now counts Lisa Rinna and Camille Grammer among his SkinLab regulars.
Ross and Rohrer’s wedding will have 150 guests in attendance. It’s not known if Teddi and the other RHOBH ladies will join them. The ladies haven’t commented on their friend’s wedding news so far.
