Gretchen And Slade Open Up About Slade’s Sick Son On Marriage Bootcamp


Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi is starring on WETV’s Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars with her longtime boyfriend Slade Smiley. And despite reports of Smiley being a dead-beat dad, he opens up about his son’s battle with cancer.

“I find you often in the bathroom crying by yourself about Grayson,” Gretchen tells Slade in a new preview for the show. “But you don’t talk about it ever.”

“I like to internalize, and certainly when it comes to my stuff, I have a hard time talking about that,” Smiley admits. “I take it all on me.”

When Gretchen asks Slade to communicate with her more, he shuts down.

“I’m pissed now,” he says. “I don’t want to be pushed any more.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
