The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi and beau, Slade Smiley, shared some quality time at the Silver Spoon Beach House in Malibu this weekend. Luckily for us, there just happened to be some Paparazzi waiting to snap some shots of them together.
The 5th season of The Real Housewives of OC is currently being filmed.
Bringing you the latest un-staged paparazzi shots of The OC Housewives’ star, Gretchen Rossi. When Gretchen is not busy being photographed randomly eating a corndog, she is evidently spending that time planning a garage sale in Costa Mesa, California with boyfriend Slade Smiley.
BuzzPhoto states that Gretchen spent time cleaning a Harley as she prepared for her garage sale in Los Angeles. That appears to be the same Harley that was gifted to her by her deceased ex fiance, JeffBeitzel, during last season’s finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Funny thing is that Tamra Barney’s son, Ryan reported to TheDirty website the following stating Gretchen might have purchased the Harley herself, and pretended it was a gift from Jeff.
“So last night im out in San Clemente at this bar called Ole’s with some friends and this guy and his girl spot me and start the normal chit chat about the show. Turns out Anthony who use to work for Harley Davidson in Irvine tells me “oh yeah I met the housewife Gretchen, i sold her that harley.” You know the same harley that “Jeff” surprised her with when they filmed at the Cliffs in Laguna Beach, well it turns out she set the whole thing up and bought the Harley herself.”
Sighs, still think both Tamra and her son really need to get a life. One that doesn’t involve Gretchen.
Every body’s favorite mean girl, Tamra Barney is at it again. The Real Housewives of OC’s star spoke to RadarOnline and had nothing nice to say about Gretchen Rossi.
Tamra slammed Gretchen’s claims of having a stalker and once again questions her moral character. “I was subpoenaed as a witness in a hearing involving…a restraining order she filed against her ex-boyfriend, Jay Photoglou,” Barney said. Gretchen had previously claimed Photoglou threatened the lives of she and her dogs, former Housewives cast member Slade Smiley, and vandalized her CA home.
Gretchen however failed to appear in court to address charges which led to them being dropped.
“I showed up in court only to find out the charges were dismissed after waiting 30 minutes. I find it strange for Gretchen, whom allegedly feared for her life because of this ‘stalker,’ wouldn’t even appear in Court for her hearing,” said Barney. “This speaks volumes about her character.” And what does your lame attempt at getting another woman “naked wasted” say about your character?
Tamra also goes on to claim Gretchen and her new boyfriend Slade Smiley drunk dialed her. ““A few weeks ago, [Rossi] and [Smiley] drunk-dialed me. Her conversation started out guarded with ‘why don’t you like me?’ She wanted to make amends, but she didn’t appear too sincere,” says Tamra.
Tamra goes on to insist she participated in the hearing in the spirit of honesty, and that Photoglou was “apologetic” for the waste of her time in court. Right Tamara.
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.
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.
In an attempt to prove he is not stalking Gretchen Rossi,Jay Photoglou decided to take a lie detector test and submit the results to RadarOnline. Jay is the sleazy guy who’s been claiming to be Gretchen’s ex boyfriend and leaking out every photo they ever took together.
Gretchen obtained a restraining order against him on March 6 on the grounds that Jay had threatened both she and her new boyfriend Slade Smiley. Jay claims he took 2 polygraph tests on March 21st. There’s obviously no way to verify this information, or even whether or not he really took a test. The results according to Jay are below -
