The Real Housewives of DRAMA – Gretchen and Slade Going Strong!
She rebounded with him after her fiancé died, now he will appear on her show
It is summer and the reality shows are being cranked out. Everyone is searching for their 15 minutes of fame and it seems that Slade Smiley has decided he wants yet a third chance at reality TV fame and fortune with his newest galpal, Gretchen Rossi.
You may remember Slade as the fiancé of Jo de la Rosa from the very first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Then he went on to host Jo’s spin-off Bravo show, Date My Ex. Gretchen debuted this year as a housewife who wasn’t actually married to her very sick and older fiancé, Jeff Beitzel, who sadly passed away just after the season taped. Now, Gretchen has officially signed on for the new season of the Orange County hit and Slade is back right by her side as boyfriend, of course. Did you follow that? The two have been publicly dating for months and were both very willing to bring their romance to the TV screen.
My source says, “Gretchen and Slade are hot and heavy. It seems like a real romance. They attended the 3rd Annual Reality Check benefit for the Trevor Project at Eleven in LA last week and they were kissing and cuddling even more than usual. They are all over each other and acting very in love. They have bonded over sick family members. They lean on each other for comfort. Slade will appear on the new season of the show with Gretchen.”
