Gretchen and Slade

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?

With Real Housewives of Orange County filming for its 7th and hopefully final season, the housewives and house losers partners are out in full-force to promote their claim to fame! In a new interview with OC Weekly, notorious duo, Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley talk their newest ventures, where Slade is getting money to pay for child support, and what you might catch a glimpse of in the upcoming season!

The anything for a buck couple’s newest project is the comedy show Keeping It Reality at the Irvine Improv. Slade describes the show as a “variety show.” “We have some very funny and successful comedians attached to the show,” Slade details. As for their role in making the audience laugh, “it’s really a little bit of Gretchen hosting and me doing some storytelling and poking fun at what our reality has become because of our association with the Housewives.”

Slade also reveals that his son, Grayson was recently on an episode of Glee! “He was on the episode when they went to the children’s hospital and played songs for the cancer kids. My son was the one who walked up and high-fived Matt Morrison!” And now Gretchen is jelly cause she wants to be on Glee, too!

The classy duo also take some time to slam their costar Tamra Barney by insinuating her beau is — coughs — batting for the other team, while also taking some shots at Slade’s ex Jo De La Rosa! Below are excerpts from their interview:

We love to see drama stirred and you just started filming so, how is the new season going so far?

Gretchen: It’s going good so far! We’ve got a lot to tell this season and I’ve got a lot on my plate. But, I’m really excited and I think the audience is really going to enjoy my stories and watching me continuously grow my brand Gretchen Christine. I’m also doing some stuff for the Pussycat Dolls and of course, the Irvine Improv which we are very excited about.

Any chance of a spin off show?

Gretchen: Yeah we keep trying to get fired but it doesn’t work! Here’s the thing, we are so grateful that Bravo has given this opportunity because it’s been so great and so fun to be able to accomplish everything we have. Sometimes though, I sit and cry at the editing. On another side, it would be awesome and an honor if they wanted to do a spin-off with Slade and I because I agree with you, we have a lot going on and we have a lot of stories to tell! However in the same breath, it’s very difficult to carry your own show and it’s not something I’m holding my breath for. But if it’s right, I think the audience will really be the ones who decide that for the network.

Slade: You know how that happened? I was offered the Bachelor, and after I ended my relationship with Jo I was still under contract. Bravo said they were going to pen a show for me sort of like a “real bachelorette of Los Angeles” with me helping her. It didn’t really blow people out of the water here but the show was such a huge hit in Europe! They are still so fanatical about that show, I just don’t get it. It’s like me and David Hasselhoff.

Any chance of a Gretchen/Jo collaboration?

Gretchen: [Laughs.] Yeah, that would be a big no.

Slade: You know Jo [De La Rosa] is very happy now bartending and singing karaoke. You know, Jo has a great voice but you have to be willing to do the work. I mean there are plenty of amazing artists who are not really good (Rihanna) I am not mentioning any names, but they have great fans and they can’t sing in public (Taylor Swift). I’m not saying that they haven’t gotten better but sometimes, they are horrific (Britney Spears). You can’t rely on being cute and being able to shake your ass, you’ve gotta put in work!

I was so repulsed with the Tamra [Barney] bathtub scene last season, did you guys almost throw-up as well?

Gretchen: Oh gosh that was bad.

Slade: You know why it’s so difficult for Eddie [Judge] is because he had to go to the heterosexual side of the fence. It was just really weird.

Classy. You know, I’m beginning to think Tamra’s claims that Gretchen is obsessed with her hold some water…

In addition to all the other exciting projects Gretchen has in the works, she is also also working on a new single, “Revelation” which was inspired by Grayson’s health struggles. As for an album… she’s not sure if “that’s the direction that I am necessarily shooting for right now.”

And she sure is desperately trying to push this comedy thing! While appearing The Playboy Morning Show with Slade; Gretchen gave us a sample of what an album might include – an ode to Slade’s magic penis. Yes – the folks that just made fun of Tamra’s bathtub scene, just debuted a little tune where they evoke people to “get your hands” on a magic schlong. Vomit, much?

Gretchen claims she wrote this gem while “sleeping on Ambien.” If you dare, a little sampling of the Grammy contender is below! But seriously – don’t dare.

This picture was posted by TMZ today of Gretchen making out with Slade! We can now officially call them a couple. For those not familiar with Slade, he appeared on the 1st and 2nd seasons of the RHOOC as the boyfriend of Jo De LaRosa. Anything is an upgrade from the sleazy Jay Photoglou.

The two were photographed while docked on a boat in Newport Harbor on Wednesday. The new couple were also spotted at a Lakers game earlier this week.

Gretchen

A reader watching a Lakers – Dallas game snapped the above picture of Gretchen with Slade Smiley at the game. Those look like some rather pricey seats. The two were also spotted together last week at a car dealership, guess the dating rumors are true after all.

Gretchen recently spoke to People magazine about Jay Photoglou and not cheating on her late fiance Jeff.
