Last year, Slade Smiley threw Gretchen a surprise birthday party, earning himself the title of “the most amazing fiance ever.” While we wait to find out what Slade has planned for the birthday girl this year, we decided to take a look back at the former Real Housewives of Orange County star through the years.
Gretchen joined TheReal Housewives of Orange County in 2008, and while she’s been off the show for two years now, she’s still around. Gretchen is very much around – she can sniff out a room full of d-listers like no other – so there’s no shortage of photo ops. Take a walk down memory lane with us below.
About the fashion show, Annabelle shared, “Fashion for Relief is not a normal fashion show in the sense that a lot of people walking have never done this before. So it is much more about having a giggle and fun with it and talking to people backstage who might be a bit scared… not at all like a normal show. Everyone has given their time to support this cause and Naomi [Campbell]. It is a great atmosphere.”
In a joint statement issued to Entertainment Tonight, Reed and Nicole shared, “This has been an extremely trying time. We have done our best to work through our issues in private. Nicole understands she made a terrible mistake and there has been an incredible price paid by both families.” #ThankYouBravo
Shannon Beadorhas broken her silence regarding her run-in with David Beador‘s ex-mistress, Nicole McMackin, at the USC football game. Shannon admitted that she spoke to Nicole first (and told everyone within earshot that she slept with her husband) but insisted that she never grabbed Nicole‘s arm.
On one hand, Shannon conceded that Nicole and her husband, Reed, go to the USC games regularly, but on the other hand, she questioned why they decided to sit 10 rows in front of Shannon and David. “They could buy a seat anywhere,” bemoaned Shannon. “I was shocked to see that she was there, so this time I am not going to roll over. I said, ‘You have a lot of nerve being here!'”
