Gretchen and Slade Update

According to a new, not so shocking report, Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi is not only trying to one up her costar Tamra Barney’s recent engagement, but is also trying to get Bravo to pay for her engagement ring!

Less than two weeks after Tamra got engaged, The NY Post is reporting that Gretchen is next, and instead of leaving the planning and proposal to her slave beau Slade Smiley, she is faking planning it all, a la Kim Kardashian, in hopes that Bravo will foot the bill. Evidently, in famewhoreville the woman does all the planning when it comes to a proposal!

A source tells The Post, “The housewives are always trying to one up each other, and the engagements are just another example of that. Gretchen was trying to hustle for an engagement storyline after hearing her rival had a ring.”

Sources reveal that after finding out that Eddie Judge proposed to Tamra, Gretchen and Slade, who have been together for 3 years believe it or not, got in touch with Bravo. “They called Bravo producers and asked if they would pay for the engagement ring and travel arrangements for a proposal in an exotic location. Bravo said no.” Ouch!

Sources add that Eddie proposed to Tamra with his own ring, purchased with his own money, ya listening Slade?!  Bravo reportedly had to re-shoot some scenes to include Tamra’s engagement news.

Hours after the NY Post report came out, Gretchen took to her Facebook, of course, to deny the report. And, we all know honesty is Gretchen’s strong suit!

First Gretchen wrote: “I normally don’t do this, but there is just so much bull honkey going on in this article that I have to address some of the ridiculous statements. Who comes up with this non-sense anyways?”

Oh but it didn’t end there as Gretchy Gretch laid out what she claims to be false about the report -

“A. I never asked Bravo to pay for an engagement ring or exotic trip

B. I didn’t know Slade was considering asking me to marry him until I saw him ask his Mom on the show (the same time the world saw it)

C. I …didn’t even know you could try and steal away a story line from another cast memeber, that is just ridiculous.

D. The lawsuit against Slade and I has been dropped and dismissed

E. Slade most certainly does not work for me and never has. He has only helped me with my business, as any good partner would. He has his own job working for a company in advertising and marketing.”

The lawsuit reference is about Gretchen’s former business partner, Ron Ann Myers, who sued her for $100,000, alleging breach of contract and fraud, last April. The Post had mentioned the lawsuit in the article, also stating that Slade was working for Gretchen.

We also reported last week about the speculation that Slade might be planning to propose to Gretchen with the same ring he gave his former fiancé Jo De LaRosa. Guess we now know why!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REPORT? DO YOU BELIEVE THE POST OR GRETCHEN?

Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi is opening up about her relationship with boyfriend Slade Smiley in a new interview!

Despite the very negative publicity surrounding her beau of over 2-years (rightfully so as Slade reportedly owes over $160,000 in back child support), it appears Gretchen is dickmatized still standing by her man and even thinking about having kids with him in the future.

First Gretchen, 33, praises Slade for being a good business partner and helping her with her handbag line. “I’m just so blessed to have such a great partner. He helps me with everything. He supports me with everything, so that makes a big difference,” said Gretchen to HollyScoop.

Gretch however admits like any other long-term relationship, the two do have their ups and downs. “We have our fights,” she admits. “We have our moments as we’ve all seen on TV, but overall we just love each other and we feel really blessed.”

Though the couple is yet to be engaged, despite the rumors, Gretchen reveals she still has babies on the brain… with Slade… who owes over 160K in child support. “I’m very excited to have kids one day with him. I’m looking forward to all that,” she said though adding “I’m in no hurry.”

“I’m loving life right now. I’m in a great place. I’m building my companies and my career. I’m loving every second of it,” added Gretch.

Meanwhile Bravo announced last week that it has officially renewed the Real Housewives of OC for a seventh season. No word yet on which cast members will be returning or getting the axe.

And finally Vicki Gunvalson gave a new interview during which she talked about love and her comments has us wondering if she might have ended things with her boyfriend Brooks Ayers, who was exposed as being a dead beat dad.

When asked what advice she would give to people who look up to her, Vicki answered “I believe in love, um, I’m all about love. But I believe that you have to be smart in love. If your gut tells you something, listen to your gut…”

Vicki also gave financial advice to women in regards to living the “Housewives” lifestyle. “I do believe that a lot of these girls feel entitled to their men taking care of them or feel entitled to a privileged lifestyle. And my voice to them is, “stop it!” Take control … know what’s going on in your home,” said Vicki. “I mean prior to Tamara (Barney) getting divorced, she didn’t know what Simon (Barney) made. She never had her name on an account … she was never entitled to write a check out of their joint check book. That’s wrong and she got hurt because of that,” she added.

And below is a new bikini photo of Vicki which she posted on her facebook over the weekend!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON VICKI’S COMMENTS, & GRETCHEN WANTING TO HAVE KIDS WITH SLADE? NOT SMART OR STUPID?

More details are being revealed about the Saturday night showdown between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Tamra Barney and Jeana Keough, and it seems Jeana wasn’t exactly an innocent victim in the incident.

In fact according to RadarOnline and E! News, Jeana was the one who provoked the physical altercation with Tamra by trying to push her into a pool unsuccessfully.

RadarOnline reports that Tamra was furious with certain comments Jeana had been making about her in the press, comments which she felt were inaccurate, so she tried to hand Jeana a cease and desist letter from her lawyer at a wrap party for the Bravo show. The party took place at castmate’s Vicki Gunvalson’s house according to E! News.

That didn’t go so well according to Radar. “Jeana said to Tamra, ‘Youre’ a b—- and I’m gonna throw you’re a– in the pool,’” a witness tells Radar. “Then she pushed Tamra, as if she was trying to throw her in the pool.”

This then led to Tamra throwing a glass of wine in Jeana’s face, and as Tamra walked away, Jeana attempted to throw her wine at Tamra, but the drink ended up missing her, instead soaking another woman’s white dress. That woman reportedly grabbed Jeana and pushed her up against a wall.

It wasn’t over yet folks as Tamra then encountered Jeana and a male friend in the driveway as she tried to leave the party. Jeana’s friend then took a wine glass and threw it at Tamra’s feet, with glass shattering and flying everywhere.

Bravo’s cameras were reportedly on hand to film the event.

In other news, the AbsurdToSublime site is reporting that Gretchen Rossi is now engaged. According to the site, her boyfriend of a year and a half, Slade Smiley, proposed to her Saturday night during the filming of the Season 6 Real Housewives of Orange County Finale.

If true, no official announcement yet from either party, though Gretchen did post a photo of she and Slade with their parents over the weekend. We’re guessing the announcement will likely come from a major media outlet like Bethenny Frankel did with PEOPLE magazine when she got engaged. The site also reports that Slade recently had his vasectomy reversed.
