Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

What Does Slade Smiley Do For a Living on Real Housewives of OC?

Real Housewives of Orange County’s Slade Smiley sometimes gets a bad wrap for not working all that hard to earn a day’s wages. So what does the guy actually do?

He actually is a jack of all trades who has dabbled in a variety of fields. He started out as a model and has been featured in commercial campaigns for such companies as Gillette, Gatorade, and Adidas. Speaking of Gatorade, we think “Be Like Slade” has just as much of a ring as “Be Like Mike.”

More recently, he worked in real estate as a consultant. He then started a company called Grayson Entertainment, which specializes in brand integration, meaning his company sets up celebrities to promote various products. However, he explained to Wetpaint Entertainment that this line of work can have lulls, during which he is slowly trying to iron out new deals.

As for a more glamorous career path, he is the co-host of an LA-based radio show. On the show, he has recently chatted with such as actor Jim Belushi, not to mention other Real Housewives stars.

He has denied the “deadbeat dad” claims, saying that he is not avoiding child support but merely applied for reduction of support, which reflected the fact that his current job isn’t quite as high-paying as his previous one was.

In addition, he is said to be making $100K a year to appear on Real Housewives of Orange County. Long story short, he doesn’t have just one job but a whole slew of them!
