TMZ is reporting that Slade Smiley, serial housewife dater & boyfriend of Gretchen Rossi, owes $80,000 in back child support to the mother of his sick son. What makes this worse is the fact that Slade’s 9 year old son, Grayson, is is fighting an inoperable brain tumor .
Slade has filed a request in L.A. County Superior Court, asking a judge to lower the child support bill because he says he’s unemployed and makes zero dollars. Slade’s rep tells TMZ that Slade has “jumped through burning hoops to take care of [his son's] well-being and health.”
The mother of Slade’s son however tells a different story, stating that Slade has only seen his sick child twice in the last year and a half, and hasn’t even sent the kid a birthday card.
Gretchen revealed to Fox News earlier this week that she had no plans to ever have any plastic surgery because she considers herself to be a “role model.” She also revealed she started The Gretchen Project to find help others find “alternative ways to maintain everlasting beauty without having to go under the knife.”
In a new interview with RadarOnline, Jay laughs at Gretchen’s claims at being a role model, while also saying she has had botox before. “I went with Gretchen to get Botox injections on at least two occasions, one time I even had botox injections,” says Jay.
He also claims Gretchen used to have photofacials done every two months to help get rid of her wrinkles.” Photofacias are an intense pulsed light treatment for skin rejuvenation.
Jay wraps us his very exclusive interview by saying — “Gretchen Rossi is a lot of things, but a role model isn’t something that immediately comes to mind when I think of her.”
It’s safe to guess we’ll be hearing more from Jay now that the 5th season of the OC Housewives is less than a month away. Still not certain as to why he feels the need to comment on every minor thing she does.
It’s obvious to see some of the ladies have spent their summers with their plastic surgeons. Housewife Lynne Curtin is barely recognizable. Based on the bio information, it seems Jeana Keough will be leaving the season early, similar to what Lauri Waring did last season.
Below are the photos and a brief bio of what is to come this season of each housewife -
Gretchen Rossi – In Season 5 Gretchen copes with the death of her finance Jeff, and learns how to move on both professionally and personally. Gretch’s social life heats up when she finds a surprising new love interest (who OC fans may or may not recognize … )
Alexis Bellino – Alexis is the new Housewife on the block. Will former new girls Gretchen and Tamra give Alexis a chance, or combine their forces for peroxide-bleached evil?
The video preview below also shows us the ladies will definitely be bringing back the drama!
The shocking preview highlights the following about each housewife -
Tamra Barney – Struggles in her marriage to husband, Simon Barney, and even mentions the ‘D’ word – Divorce. She will also be dealing with financial problems as she attempts to sell her house, which is now up for short sale and might be foreclosed on soon.
Lynne Curtin – Will be shown getting a face lift, while dealing with financial difficulties with her husband. Her eviction was made very public in recent weeks.
Gretchen Rossi - Is shown struggling with losing deceased fiance Jeff Beitzel, though she had already moved on with new boyfriend Slade Smiley before this season’s filming started. She is also shown confronting Tamra about the nasty things she said about her.
Vicki Gunvalson – Is shown attempting to mend her marriage after spending all of last season putting down her husband, and continued to do so by being photographed in public giving lap dances to random men, and baring her bottom in a public bar to get a tattoo.
Jeana Keough – Is shown having some difficulty with her real estate dealings.
Alexis Bellino – The newest housewife and a friend of Gretchen’s will be attempting to fit in with the other housewives.

More Bravo housewives are following in the steps of Kim Zolciak, by taking photos for the NOH8 campaign.
Gretchen Rossi, Sheree Whitfield, Dina Manzo and Kandi Burruss are the latest housewives to participate in the NOH8 campaign, in an attempt to promote themselves gay rights. Real Housewives of Atlanta’s honorable 6th housewife, Dwight Eubanks, gets in on the action as well.
The NOH8 (No Hate) campaign was created to help raise awareness for marriage equality in California.
Check out the photos of the remaining housewives below!
The Real Housewives of Orange County’sGretchen Rossi had previously claimed her deceased fiance, Jeff Beitzel, didn’t leave her “millions and millions of dollars,” but according to TMZ, that is not the whole truth.
TMZ has uncovered Jeff Beitzel‘s trust, amended a month before his death, and it’s clear she actually pulled in a pretty penny. $2,500,000 million to be exact.
Gretchen was awarded $2,500,000 — some of which she collected from Beitzel’s life insurance policy. According to TMZ, some of Beitzel’s five ex-wives aren’t too happy with her inheritance either.
Jeff’s ex wife, Sharon, had previously lashed against Gretchen, explaining what she and her kids really thought of her.
Gretchen has however moved on with new boyfriend/OC ‘housewives’ serial dater – Slade Smiley.
