Slade Smiley Calls Tamra Barney’s Baby Storyline “Completely Manufactured”

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley aren’t even a part of The Real Housewives of Orange County this year but they’re definitely still in the headlines thanks to a nasty feud with Tamra Barney. Ever since Season 9 began a few weeks ago we’ve been watching things get pretty heated between Gretchen and her former bestie — mostly because of Tamra’s recent legal problems.

Not only have things been getting tense between Tamra and Gretchen, but also between Tamra and Slade — though the two never really got along anyway. Now, speaking to, Slade is slamming the 46-year-old reality star and her baby storyline this season with husband Eddie Judge.

“Tamra is just coming up with ‘I want a baby’ [request] for a storyline,” he tells the site. “She cried for part of the show, it was ridiculous. She needed a storyline. So she came up with the baby one. Everything Tamra does is completely manufactured for the show.”

Geez, Slade is definitely not being nice to Tamra, huh? It seems as though tensions are higher than ever between these two camps, with Tamra calling Gretchen a pretty terrible name and Tamra saying Gretchen suffers from “being narcissistic.” Word on the street is that Gretchen was fired after Season 8, but she has said that the show wants her back — probably due to this feud.

We bet this feud won’t be dying down anytime soon. Your move, Tamra.

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
