Gag me with a spoon! In honor of his award for douchebag of the year birthday, Gretchen Rossi gave a major shout out to her fiancé, Slade Smiley on Instagram. The mushy post was also accompanied with a photo in which the reality stars look nauseatingly perfect.
The Marriage Bootcamp stars have had quite a year, which unfortunately has included treatments for IVF, after failing to conceive a baby naturally. But this year — and perhaps next — will still not include a wedding. “We already feel married and know we’re meant to be together for the rest of our lives,” Gretchen recently gushed.
Speaking of gushing — read on to see what Gretchen had to say about Slade in honor of his big day.
After Teresa was sentenced and all the bigwigs sat around wondering what to do now, I was like, “Um, FIRE HER?!?” I mean, seriously! I was not shocked, however, to learn that a pink slip wasn’t on the list of options.
We start off taking a stroll down memory lane with clips of Slade from when he started in season one of the show. And then Andy shared a hilarious montage of clips of Tamra Barney (now Judge) slamming Gretchen.
Gretchen says “Tamra Barney has lost all credibility with everyone, including the viewers. She’s the biggest lying, manipulating, conniving, narcissistic sociopath. And I say she’s a sociopath because sociopaths don’t even realize that they do anything wrong. All they do is blame everyone else for their mistakes and that’s all she continues to do and the viewers saw it last season.”
Simon has been called out by court psychologists for some of his statements. And he alleges that their eldest daughter does not want a relationship with Tamra. There has been drama in and out of the courtroom between the bitter exes. Simon was seeking sole physical custody, allowing for visitation with Tamra, and for Tamra to pay his attorney fees in the case. Yesterday they met back in court where it was good news for Tamra and their children.
The presiding judge dismissed Simon’s case against Tamra for custody of their two younger children, Spencer and Sophia, citing a lack of evidence to substantiate his claims!
Reality star Brooks Ayers, infamous for being the nefarious boyfriend of Vicki Gunvalson – and the subject of many a feud – just revealed that he has progressive stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
“My reality is that I have, once again, been diagnosed with a form of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. Brooks was initially diagnosed in the fall of 2013. Interestingly this was never included in RHOC as a storyline – or even mentioned on the show.
The Golden Foodie Awards recognizes excellence in the local food scene and celebrates independent restaurants and chefs. Shannon presented alongside husband David Beador, you know, now that everything’s good there and they’re sleeping in the same bed. And Heather was there because she’s sort of an expert on food given that she was one time opening a restaurant.
Photos of the ladies not killing each other over cocktails and appetizers are below!
On a related note, Amy recently shared her favorite Real Housewives moment, the RHOC trip to British Columbia. “All of the women were dressed head-to-toe in their best winter apparel and strapped into their downhill skis, ready to hit the slopes when Lauri decided to accuse Vicki of having sex with multiple partners,” recalled Amy. “This public display of crazy was a gift from the heavens.”
Anyway, Gretchen has been trying to have Slade Smiley‘s babies for a while now and unfortunately things just aren’t working out naturally so the couple is turning to fertility treatments. Sharing that the decision to consider fertility was a painful one, Gretchen admits that she had “mourn the loss of making a baby the natural way” before she accepted the situation.
