Former Real Housewife star Gretchen Rossi and her fiance Slade Smiley have yet to walk down the aisle, but when it comes to their relationship, the handbag designer claims they’ve found the key to success.
“Really good sex,” the former Real Housewife told Radar Online when asked what keeps her and Smiley together.
During Real Housewives of Miami star Lea Black’s Red Carpets & White Lies book launch party held at Lisa Vanderpump’s PUMP Lounge, the former Real Housewife explained how she and Smiley make their relationship work.
“We are best friends, and he is the best guy ever. He is my best friend and that is why we work. Honestly, even if you tried to twist this, the funny thing is that we know what it is, and that is all that matters. We laugh every single day. He is my soul partner.”
Rossi, who admits to using “a lot of Botox” to stay young, looked back on her time on The Real Housewives of Orange County during her interview with Radar Online. She said that while the show certainly featured some low points for the former Real Housewife, it was a good experience overall.
“We served our time and the show became SO TOXIC and SO NEGATIVE and SO FAKE. People just created whatever storyline they wanted to keep themselves on TV. For me, it was the same story that they wanted to beat dead. I wanted to grow. I wanted to expand and grow into other avenues of my life.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the former Real Housewife star was scheduled to marry Smiley at the end of last month, but, unfortunately, their wedding date came and went with no ceremony. Just before the wedding date, which was previously announced as May 23, Rossi spoke to Us Weekly, explaining she and Smiley are having a hard time picking a date and sticking to it.
“It’s so bad…Every single time we start planning and thinking that we’re going to make it happen, something comes up, or somebody can’t make it in the family or just something… It’s so funny because, at this point, I’m like, screw it. We’re just going to like go elope.”
Former Real Housewife Gretchen Rossi and her fiance, Slade Smiley, most recently appeared on WEtv’s Marriage Boot Camp, which exposed their relationship issues in therapy and other group activities.
