Oh why oh why oh why isn’t Gretchen Rossi on her own reality TV show so she can chronicle her challenges to get pregnant. Damn you Bravo for not recognizing the amazingness of this potential spinoff. Right up there with the amazingness of a Gretchen/Slade wedding spinoff.
Anyway, Gretchen has been trying to have Slade Smiley‘s babies for a while now and unfortunately things just aren’t working out naturally so the couple is turning to fertility treatments. Sharing that the decision to consider fertility was a painful one, Gretchen admits that she had “mourn the loss of making a baby the natural way” before she accepted the situation.
Question: Didn’t El Slave-o have a vasectomy a while back?

“It’s so much more complicated than we ever anticipated before we started it,” the former Real Housewives Of Orange County star acknowledges. “You question everything and wonder if it’s the right decision. And it’s not fun to shoot yourself up three times a day. You just hope it pays off.”
Still Gretchen is thrilled they are taking these steps. “Actively pulling the trigger to make a baby is very powerful,” she explains. “You go through every step together.”
Gretchen has already undergone one round of IVF and shares that they’ll go for another attempt in November if this doesn’t work out. Luckily she has
perpetually jobless Slade by her side as a beacon of support. “As I’m crying and putting in shots that are very painful, Slade is right there with me.” Oh… how romantical!
Slade, too, is distraught by their inability to conceive. “If we were 20 and had another two decades ahead of us, maybe we’d have a child and see how that goes,” he tells OK! Magazine. “But as we begin to age, we want to make sure that we’ve done everything possible to ensure a healthy baby.”
As for the status of their own relationship, the couple who was on Marriage Bootcamp last season, is still in no hurry to tie the knot! “We already feel married and know we’re meant to be together for the rest of our lives,” Gretchen gushes. Furthermore, what better wedding accessory is there than a
Gretchen Christine Plasti-purse your own child!? “It’d be pretty amazing to have our children at our wedding!”
Oh yeah – Gretchen is hoping for a girl.
Who will look nothing like her thanks to all the plastic surgery. “It would be really fun to have a girl. She would be such a daddy’s girl.”
