Gird your loins (yes, that's an expression); there's trouble in paradise for Bravo's hottest couple! Real Housewives of Orange County's Gretchen Rossi has been dating veteran reality star stud Slade Smiley since 2009, but they recently went through a tough time.

“Gretchen is growing tired of taking care of Slade and paying for everything in his life and she’s just about had it," a source tells Radar Online. "She is supporting him and helping to pay his legal bills and it’s getting to be too much for her."

Nooooo! Could it be? Is this the end of Gretchen and Slade? The source continues, "The folks at Bravo hate them together and they don’t want Gretchen to date Slade anymore. He really adds nothing to her life and is more of a leach than an asset.”

Gretchen has always supported Slade in the past, but apparently it's creating problems in their 'ship. In a promo for Season 7, Episode 18, we see Gretchen lose her cool with Slade when he dares to ask for her hand in marriage (worst boyfriend ever!). She even threatens to break up with him!

Now, before you start sobbing hysterically,  All About TRH recently spoke to Gretchen, and she assured them that she she and Slade are "doing very well." She adds on Twitter, “For those of you that are asking, the press stories about Slade & I aren't true! We are happy and still together!”

Thank goodness! We just want Smiley to smile again.
