Jo De La Rosa, who appeared in the first two seasons of The Real Housewives Of Orange County on Bravo, is getting her on reality dating competition series. Joining Jo De La Rosa in the new series will be her ex-fiancÃƒ Slade Smiley. The series will be called Date My Ex: Jo & Slade and will follow De La Rosa as she looks for love in Los Angeles.
After leaving behind Orange County, De La Rosa moved to Los Angeles to pursue a singing career. Her debut single is called “You Can’t Control Me.” In each episode of Date My Ex: Jo & Slade, Jo De La Rosa will venture out on a series of dates. Each of the dates will be set up by her friends, Myia Ingoldsby and Katy Metz.
However, there is a unusual twist that makes this new series different from all the other reality dating competitions on TV. The men who date Jo De La Rosa must also live with her ex-fiancÃƒ Slade Smiley. Smiley will question the suitors and give his opinions on their compatibility with Jo. Smiley will also attempt to determine which guys are there for the right reasons.
“No one knows Jo better than me, which means that no one probably has more influence over her,” said Smiley. “It’s weird having your ex help you out dating, and quite frankly I’m a little scared. For the guys,” said De La Rosa.
At the end of each episode, Jo De La Rosa will choose one of her dates to pass on to the next round. At the end of the series, Jo De La Rosa will select just one special guy. Date My Ex: Jo & Slade premieres on Monday, July 21 at 10 PM ET/PT on Bravo. A special preview called Jo and Slade: The Break Up will air on Monday, June 30 at 10 PM on Bravo.
