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.
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.
Tell Us – Are You Excited For The New Season of The OC Housewives?
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.
The first one is being reported by ExtraTV. They claim the relationship between the duo is fake and only made for TV. According to Extra, Slade reportedly approached Gretchen with the idea of creating a showmance. They say his past relationships with other “Housewives” castmembers stirs up some questions about the veracity of his romance with Gretchen. OC fans might recall Slade was previously engaged to “Housewife” Joe De La Rose and then dated Lauri Waring.
The second rumor involves pregnancy. TheDirty website is reporting today that Gretchen might be pregnant with Slade’s baby. According to thedirty, this is based on some buzz around Orange County. The Dirty website has been pretty accurate on previous reportings about the OC Housewives, so this rumor might have some legs to it.
TMZ is reporting that Slade Smiley of The Real Housewives of Orange County, also known as Gretchen Rossi‘s current boyfriend, is being investigated for allegedly hitting someone during a party.
The Laguna Beach PD is looking into an altercation Slade allegedly got into at a friend’s birthday party back on July 15. The person accusing Slade of hitting him is allegedly none other than sleazeballJay Photoglou.
Jay is Gretchen’s ex, and has spent the last year leaking photos of he & Gretchen online, while trying his hardest to make himself famous. Gretchen has accused Jay of stalking her, and even filed a restraining order against Jay earlier this year. Can’t blame Slade for wanting to knock his teeth out, if the story is true.
According to TMZ, “there was a pushing and shoving match” that led to the other guy leaving the party. The hotel where the party was being held did not call the cops that night and neither did the other guy … until eight days later.
In other news, the sleaze known as Jay Photoglou refuses to go away. According to this report, he will be appearing on an E! network special about the Real Housewives franchise titled “So True So False Real Housewives Scandals.” And yeah, you guessed it, he will be there to talk about Gretchen. Sighs.
The show is suppose to be airing on E! on August 5th. I have been unable to find any information about it on E!’s website or the TV guide listings. Will be on the look out for it though.
