Gretchen Rossi is about to become Mrs. Slade Smiley? The Real Housewives Of Orange County star is said to be getting engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Slade Smiley. Keep reading to find out the latest scoop on these two Bravo stars.
It seems that Slade Smiley is getting a promotion, from Gretchen’s assistant to her fiancé! Life & Style is reporting that Slade went ring shopping in New York City on February 12th. But does Slade have good taste when it comes to jewelry? Slade chose a 4.5 carat yellow diamond dazzler. An onlooker told Life & Style, “It was everything he was looking for.” Gretchen must pay Slade a pretty penny, if he can afford a ring like that!
Slade and Gretchen’s relationship has always been a source of controversy on the show. Marriage was just discussed in this week’s RHOC episode. Slade actually let his mom know that he was thinking about popping the question, which she immediately responded, “Nooooo!” In Gretchen’s Bravo blog she responded to Mama Slade’s negative reaction. ”I called her right away and questioned why she said that. She said that Slade had promised her and my parents that he would have his stuff worked out before we got married. Then I told her, but we could always have a very long engagement…right? LOL. She agreed with me.”
Gretchen hasn’t confirmed or denied anything about the engagement news. Maybe there will be another Bravo TV wedding in our future? I hope so!
There are a lot of Slade haters out there, but who supports this relationship? Let’s hear what your thoughts are on Mr. and Mrs. Smiley, leave a comment below!
