Real Housewives have catfights, but what do you call it when the Househusbands go after one another? Whatever you call it, Slade Smiley isn’t pulling any punches when it comes to Real Housewives of New Jersey husband Joe Giudice.

“Joe Giudice is a straight up douche bag,” Slade reportedly told Fox News correspondent Tom Murro backstage at the Style 360 Michael Kuluva fashion show during New York Fashion Week. 

Them’s fightin’ words! Slade, whose girlfriend is Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi, didn’t go into great detail about why he’s not a fan of Joe’s, but we have some guesses.
 
Maybe it’s the cheating rumors? Or the allegation that he stole his brother’s identity because of a DWI? Or maybe it was that time he called his wife, RHoNJ’s Teresa Giudice, “a c—” on national television. Who knows?

Don’t worry, Slade Smiley doesn’t have a blanket dislike for all the RHoNJ husbands. He said he actually likes Joe Gorga and finds Richard Wakile “somewhat tolerable.” What a sweetie!
