The reality star edition of Marriage Boot Camp kicks off tonight and the cast celebrated the premiere last night in NYC.
The cast members and a few other supporters turned out last night at Catch Rooftop to party (as much as a few of the pregnant ladies could) and enjoy their moment in the spotlight. Among those in attendance: Jenni "JWoww" Farley and her fiance Roger Mathews, who are expecting a baby girl this summer. Also hitting the red carpet: Traci Braxton and Kevin Surrat, Tanisha Thomas and Clive Muir, as well asTrista and Ryan Sutter.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
Above:Gretchen Rossi tweeted, "All I wanted after this weekend's fashion show (wearing a bikini in front of 3,000 people) was ice cream! So Slade Smiley found me an ice cream store and I had my favorite mint chocolate chip!"
The reality (current and former) stars flocked to Hollywood last night for OK! Magazine's So Sexy party.
Alexis Bellino ventured out with hubby Jim, as did her fellow ex-costar of RHOC, Gretchen Rossi. At the event Gretchen was seen cozied up to current OC Housewife Lizzie Rovsek and her husband Christian. Gretchen must've wanted to compare notes on swimsuit empires with Lizzie.
My, oh my! I dare you not to look at the above-picture and not get a little nauseous. Reality stars certainly love garnering attention while in various stages of undress, don't they? Geez. I'm always surprised at how I'm equal parts shocked that Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley have stayed together this long and convinced that they are will be together for eternity because, really, how perfect are they for one another? It's quite a conundrum.
Since quitting being asked to leave Real Housewives of Orange County, Gretchen does what every good cast off does…she builds her "brand" by putting her name on anything that will take it while shopping around a wedding spin-off series and promoting said "brand" at a slew of D-list parties where formal attire is akin to some lyrca triangles and floss. It's hard life, people. A hard life.
Despite promoting Marriage Bootcamp, it seems Gretchen and sycophant fiancé Slade Smiley can't let go of some of their RHOC dramas – and lucky for them neither can their former co-star Tamra Judge! Good ol' Tam-Tam… never one to take the highroad.
Now that Tamra is having custody issues of her own with ex-husband Simon Barney, a fan lashed out on twitter calling Tamra's situation karma after how she treated Slade. Tamra didn't like that and reacted writing, “Oh plz. That f**ker is a deadbeat with a sick son. Keep supporting him, it makes you look Real good!” Tamra has since deleted the tweet, but Slade wasn't going to let that PR opportunity go to waste.
Not in attendance were several of Lisa's RHOBH co-stars, like Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster.
Reality Tea was invited to the opening party, but things have been a little too hectic around here, so we weren't able to peel ourselves away from the site and attend. BUT we do have the red carpet photos for you and that's the most important part!
Slade Smiley is embarking upon yet another career change – and hopefully this one will make him some money! Doubtful.
Slade has been sporting some interesting long hair lately that have many fans making fun of him. Gretchen Rossi got on Facebook to defend Slave's latest look, claiming it's for an acting role! Like the types of roles Gretchen gets (extras) or the types of roles A-list Superstar Heather Dubrow gets (one scene extra)?
Gretchen took to Facebook to blast Tamra for the lies she's supposedly spreading – including the claim that Gretchen and Slade Smiley were fired. Gretchen says it's completely false.
She shared, "Once again having to take time out of my day to address & deal with this persons lies and BS. As your daughter said in her tweet to you "it's getting old"." Ouch. Gretchen didn't get the memo that bringing the kids into it is never cool.
