WE tv may have struck gold with their new season of Marriage Boot Camp. Ratings were higher than ever for the premiere of the new “Reality Stars” season, and we’re sure that Gretchen Rossi — aka “The White Oprah” — has something to do with that. The show hit 862,000 viewers for the premiere — not too shabby, eh? And, if things are going to be as exciting as promised, we can’t imagine the numbers will be dropping anytime soon.

The show is designed to help couple fix struggling relationships, and we know Gretchen’s has been struggling a lot. The former Real Housewives of Orange County blonde beauty brought along fiance Slade Smiley to the show, and she swears viewers are finally going to understand what she sees in him.

"We're really excited about this new show, because I really feel like we will get the chance to show fans a new side of Slade and I that you haven't seen yet," Gretchen explained to TooFab. "I am really excited, especially for Slade since he got such a bad rap on 'Housewives.' You're just going to get to see the truth behind a lot of things that have been put out there about him -- what a loving, wonderful father he is, a great partner he is and that he is really just like every other guy, where it's hard to show emotion. He does end up really ugly-crying a lot [on the show]."

We’ll believe it when we see it, Gretch. In the meantime, keep bringing in those ratings, girlfriend!
