Slade Smiley Threatened To Sue Bravo? Why Gretchen Rossi Was Fired


Many viewers were surprised when rumors flew that Bravo let Gretchen Rossi go from The Real Housewives of Orange County, but RumorFix is revealing what went down after the reunion that eventually led to Gretchen’s departure. A source tells Mr. Housewife that every year Bravo has focus groups to get viewer’s opinions on the show and many found Gretchen’s story lines to be too fake. The source also reveals that Gretchen’s fiancé, Slade Smiley “threatened to sue Bravo, the cast, NBC and the production after the reunion show.” According to the source, “Slade was furious that provocative images of Gretchen and Jay (her alleged fling when she was engaged to Jeff) were shown. Of course that didn’t sit well with the powers that be.”
