In this sneak peek of Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 2, we get a glimpse of Slade’s new gig as a radio host for Playlist 92.7 with his own “Radio Slade” show. While riffing with his co-host, Kelly, Slade starts talking about a “hypothetical situation” he needs some insight on.
“Let’s just say there’s a person who is not really well liked, has been kind of rude, of the social circle you hang out with,” he begins. “This person kind of looks like a muppet.”
At this point, it becomes clear that Slade Smiley is referring to Vicki Gunvalson. The plot thickens!
“And then all of a sudden this person, let’s just say according to some Internet reports, decided to have maybe her 13th surgery,” Slade continues. “Shows up at a party looking like Mickey Rourke. Do you acknowledge the fact that it’s obvious there’s been a change?”
“If there’s an elephant in the room, you have to address it,” Kelly advises.
“What if I didn’t bring peanuts?” Slade jokes. “I don’t want to be responsible for pissing off the elephant!”
Comparing Vicki to both Mickey Rourke and an elephant in the same discussion? That’s pretty harsh, even for Slade!
