Will Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley Have a Wedding Spin-off? Exclusive
After a four-season courtship, Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi finally asked longtime boyfriend Slade Smiley to marry her. Which of course begat another important question: Will the couple, in typical Bravo fashion, tie the knot in a televised wedding special?
Wetpaint Entertainment spoke exclusively with the bride-to-be, who says details of the big day haven’t really crossed her mind yet.
“I’m so excited,” Gretchen tells Wetpaint. “We’re honestly still basking in the glow of the engagement right now. I had been working on the proposal for a long time. And of course, before that, working on my issues from past relationships. But I can finally say I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my whole life. Slade and I share a love that most people only dream about.”
But will they be sharing that love with the rest of the world by televising their wedding day, like Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge are doing with their wedding?
“Of course I’d be open to it,” she says. “It’s a fun time in anyone’s life and it’d be cool to share it with an audience, but it’s not something I’m desperate to do. If it happens, great!”
Gretchen hints they might have a different reason for celebrating even before they become husband wife. “We’ve had babies on the brain for a while, so I’m not sure which will come first,” she says.
Either way — whether it’s marriage or the baby carriage that comes first — we’re thrilled for them!
