The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi was photographed with her new beau aka Slade Smiley this weekend in West Hollywood, California.
Gretchen was also photographed as she selected a few outfits that she will use for the Gumball 3000 rally race where she will be raising money for the ‘Rossi Racing for the Cure’ charity for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of her late fiance Jeff Beitzel.
The Gretchen Rossi soap opera is never ending as TheDirty website continues to publish some really embarrassing photos of her. Two of which are below. Gretchen seems to be staying strong as she re-emerged two days ago in Santa Monica. The staged above photo of her was taken as she was leaving a public restroom.
According to TMZ, Gretchen has gone to the police to report that some of the photos of her posted on TheDirty were taken from her stolen camera.
There are also rumors that the creep known as Jay Photoglou may be trying to leak some nude photos as well as a sex tape of Gretchen. Hopefully these are only rumors. I think she’s been through enough already, and should be very careful with whom she trusts in the future.
Below are some of less embarrassing photos of she and Jay making the rounds -
The Real Housewives of Bravo walked the runway as this years A-List awards and below is a gallery of the 13 housewives who walked. The housewife who gets the most fan votes wins a $10,000 cash prize for a charity of their choice.
Who Looked The Best Out of All The Housewives?
My favorite looks of the night surprisingly go to Kim Zolciak and Gretchen Rossi.

The Real housewives attended the Bravo A list awards this weekend and below are pictures of the housewives. Very interesting seeing Gretchen with all the other OC housewives. The Real housewives of NY star Bethenny Frankel blogged about meeting all the housewives -
“This past weekend was the Bravo A-List Awards in LA, and I had the distinct pleasure of meeting all of the housewives. Yup, Atlanta and OC too.It was a weekend of a lot of wigs and a lotta weave. Here were the highlights: Kim is larger than life, off the rails, I don’t give an F, I drink, I smoke, my rack is hanging out, so stick it. Good TV for sure. Sheree was shockingly quiet, understated, nice and seemingly drama free (her flaming cling on gay glam friend notwithstanding). Lisa was tiny and peppy and sweet. Gretchen is bubbly and giggly and a stereotypically ditzy blonde, but truthfully, she seemed sweet on the surface as well. The fact that she’s dating Slade is too absurd to discuss, so I’ll let the viewers decide if he makes it next season. The blondes from OC have the most boobs and hair and lashes and Lynne made a funny comment that she could carve her initials in her face.
Where were the cameras? Truthfully, for a group of 13 women, I have to say, we played along very nicely. As for the husbands, except Simon Barney, most of them are wallflowers, and I’m not sure if George even speaks.
Freud would have a field day with this – Lauri “accidentally” sprayed Gretchen with her own personal airbrushing machine and her red carpet dress (which was half white) now had tan on it. She handled it surprisingly well.
What also made me laugh was the number of groupie entourage peeps these broads hung with. New Yorkers are independent. Ramona and I rolled solo while Atlanta and the OC had hair, makeup, friends, artists, drivers, bodyguards – you name it.The fact that my cast is way more subtle is truly astounding in and of itself.”
Gretchen Rossi recently spoke out about Slade Smiley and being a fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Nene Leakes. Gretchen continues to wear the engagement ring given to her by her late fiance Jeff Beitzel, though she is now dating Slade.
OnNene Leakes- “I’m really good friends with NeNe. She is one of my favorite people ever. She is so cool.” Gretchen and Nene met at a commercial shoot for Bravo. “She is one of the most confident women I have ever met and I love that about her,” Gretchen said. “She would sit there and go, ‘I’d watch me too if I were watching the show.’ She’s so all about herself…I’m a strong, confident woman, but just in a very different demeanor.”
OnSlade Smiley - “Slade is one of the best men I’ve come across in my life besides Jeff,” Gretchen explained. “And I know he’s a secure enough man that whether or not I’m wearing this ring would not matter to him at all.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County has yet to be greenlighted for it’s fifth season, and according to the NY Post, Slade and Gretchen’s new relationship might be playing a big factor.
As you all know by now, Gretchen and Slade are now a couple. Slade had appeared on previous seasons while dating Jo De LaRosa and Lauri Waring. The Post reports that the folks at Bravo are very skeptical of this publicity stunt new relationship and are not anxious to have Slade back on the show.
Bringing you the latest episode in the never ending soap opera of the OC housewives, TMZ is now reporting that Vicki Gunvalson is receiving death threats. I mean we just can’t make these things up even if we tried.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating two death threats received by Vicki. The sheriffs believe the two threats came from “a fanatical female fan who takes the show way too seriously.”
According to the Sheriff, Vicki received one of the threats through a phone call, and the other through an email sent to Jeana Keough. The email told Jeana not to worry about Vicki because she “would take care of Vicki for her.” The cops continue to investigate these threats.
While we can understand why people would hate Vicki, death threats is definitely taking it a bit too far. Wonder if Tamra is receiving threats as well?
