Gretchen Rossi Let's Discuss: Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC Tamra Judge

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley Say They Are Certain Eddie Judge Is Gay; Plus Claim Tamra Is “Manufacturing A Relationship For Television”

Desperate much?

The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s favorite has-beens Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are back again to stir the pot.

The perpetually engaged couple appeared on The Tomorrow Show and wasted no time slamming Tamra Judge and her husband Eddie; claiming that they are confident Eddie is gay.

Gretchen explains why she believes the rumors questioning Eddie’s sexuality are true.

“We were filming; there was something that was said about, uh, Eddie at the table. Somebody brought up a situation that they walked into, and I simply asked the question, ‘wow, well do you know if Eddie’s gay or not?’ I asked a question based off of the information that was being given to me. I wasn’t there to try and call Tamra out or try and call Eddie out. It was nothing like that. And quite frankly, whatever their deal is, is between them,” Gretchen says“And I, it’s like, if I wanted really to out that, I could have done that a long time ago. It surprised me the story that I heard in that moment because I hadn’t heard that story before, and I was like, ‘wow like that’s pretty, pretty interesting.’”

Slade jumps in adding,“The truth is, is that nobody cares whether Eddie is gay, isn’t gay. I think what people care about is that Tamra could potentially be lying about it, and she’s manufacturing, you know, in our opinion, she’s manufacturing a relationship for television.”

In fact, Gretchen claims that if people knew what she knows they would believe the rumors that Eddie is gay as well.

“The story that was told to us, it would make any of you sitting here go, ‘wait a minute, so is he gay or is he like; is he intimate? Is he not?’ Like, it would make any of you question that,” Gretchen says.

Slade further bashed Tamra by claiming she’s a faux Christian.

“She’s so two-faced and knows how to manipulate everyone, and her policy is ‘lie, lie, lie and eventually everyone will start to believe you’…Everything that we see her do is so pre-meditated: ‘I’m gonna become Christian, who would dare question my religion? Christians are stupid, and they’ll follow me. And if I just tell everyone that I’m Christian, Christian, Christian, eventually they’ll believe me’.”

I just can’t with Gretchen and Slade. Ugh, these two will do and say anything to stay in the spotlight. I don’t believe the rumors about Eddie’s sexuality and nor do I care. I don’t give a shit if Eddie’s straight, gay, bi, or whatever – it’s his business. I don’t think Tamra would marry a gay man just for a TV show.

Thoughts on Slade and Gretchen’s interview? Are you buying Gretchen and Slade’s claims? What do you think about Eddie’s sexuality? Would Tamra manufacture her relationship with Eddie for TV? Could there be truth to the rumors about Eddie’s sexuality? Does Tamra just lie, lie, lie?

  • Heaven

    Lydia’s husband is So Hen Pecked. Her whiney voice is Worst!
    Her sweet husband might be a closet one as well.

  • Heaven

    In my humble opinion…Eddie is So Gay! Meghan King Edmonds husband is Another Closeted Gay Man.
    More Gay than Not. Jim acts gays, talks gay…come Out of Closet Jim!

  • Trinette

    It’s interesting how she says it’s their business but she’s talking about it in a blog. People will do anything to try to be relevant.

  • Me myself and I

    Why is it anyone’s job to out someone about a fake relationships or being gay. If he is gay why is it their job to out him and why is it their job to out a manufactured relationship. At the end of the day I am NOT a fan of Tamra’s but I would like to understand why it’s anyone’s business to judge what goes on or doesn’t go on in her bedroom or what type of Christian she is or isn’t. REAL HOUSEWIVES is a TV show! It’s not real and anyone that thinks it is is a moron. Sour grapes seem to be the big issue. Does anyone really think we look at these show for any other reason than entertainment? Also defining people by how they get off is creepy. Why do people think the rest of the world needs to know how you like to get off? Be gay or don’t be gay just stop announcing to the world your sex habits. Is that really so important? As for this silly couple “setting us straight” NPI SHUT UP ALREADY. HOW GROSS TO TALK ABOUT BEDROOM PREFERENCES OR JUDGING SOMEONES CHRISTIAN WALK OR LACK OF ONE.

    • Rain

      Love you post ????

    • Dave

      Stop acting holier than thou. We all watch these shows and judge the people on it. How was it any of Tamra’s business to out Gretchen’s alleged affair when her fiancé was dying? Tamra wants to out everyone’s business but when it comes to her own skeletons everything is off limits. Of course it’s of interest to viewers if Tamra went through with a sham marriage. And you better believe if Tamra found out something like that about one of her enemies, she would scream it from the rooftops- and take great pleasure in doing so.

  • jbbug

    Oh well. Slade is a creep-deadbeat dad and Gretchen is a fake wannabe bitch that will tell any lie just to stay relevant. Why if Eddie was gay would he get married to a woman? He wasn’t on TV or well known so now what is your next lie Shady Slade/Gretchen?

  • Steve

    Maybe they saw Eddie with Jax from Vanderpump Rules together.

  • Niki

    Who cares if Eddie likes to heat up the bagel until it’s creamy? It’s their business. #LeaveEddieAlone

    And as for manufacturing a relationship for TV? Nooo, really? A Housewife??? I am in shock…

  • Sheba

    They are all using it for a storyline. It started last year and carried thru. They are all as bad as the other in this group. Bravo needs to do an overhaul on OC

  • Lisa.Hill

    Gretchen is desperate to get back on TV for a paycheck. She is being sued by her lawyer for over $300 hundred thousand dollars in legal bills. I don’t believe anything she says. How’s the wedding planning going?

    • Rain

      Lisa ???? love it

  • Carolyn Eisen

    Yep he’s is gay thought it along time ago “NOBODY cares and she is going thru mid life crisis looking rough in my opinion not better because of working out and that hair ! Yek! Such a bitch

  • bravelibrity•

    I went to school with Tamra. Darren is my high school sweetheart. Our families still live on the same street in Glendora. She abandoned her son when he was small. Her character is trailer park. But she is smart and therefore a master manipulator. Eddie could very well be bi-sexual. She’s covering up her affair with Jeff Timmons from 98 degrees. A blow job she gave him was inadvertently recorded on an open mic after taping the NOH8 ads. She is desperate not to have the tapes released. Her best man in her wedding is abolished from her life. She uses people and spits them out. She no more Christian than Satan.

  • Karen Villareal

    Who was that trailer park trash Grechen??? that fabricated a relationship for a tv show? YOU YOU YOU..You are the lowest of the low. And how about trying to talk without saying LIKE every third word. No vocabulary. And Slade is just as low as whale s*** too for chiming in and agreeing with what this dumb blonde says. Both are desperate for some attention. Yuk!!!

  • Aileen

    Tamra and Eddie are the only OC couple with a decent relationship. Vicious Icky Vicky is just jealous.

    • Rain

      She’s a gutter viper

  • Cindy

    Lol…..great minds think alike….the very first day Eddie made an appearance on the show. My Gaydar said he was Gay. I have been waiting patiently for a few years for someone to tell Tamara. She probably knows but does not care or in denial. He is a screaming queen honey !!.

  • John Presutti

    Of course the marriage can be a sham…. Those “rumors” about Eddie have been around for reason.. People know… the bottom line is no one really cares….. but Tamra denying it makes her look dumb. Most likely they have an arranged marriage for the camera….. It gave Tamra a few seasons of storyline and it gave Eddie fame and cash for both of them. Tamra is the fakest housewife out there…….

  • justanothermary

    Slade has always been the one who pings my gaydar. Maybe Slade and Gretch know about Eddie because he’s been with Slade.

  • Dave

    It was obvious from day one that he’s gay. Tamra got a storyline and he got a beard and some $$. Maybe he and Jim Edmonds can run off together. What a spinoff!

    • September24

      LOL!

  • michers

    What an awful story ! For those two to perpetuate such a thing about someone’s husband is low and should not be given attention . I didn’t even text if shit those dic*s said . Eddie should start hitting bitches with slander suits . First drunk ass restraining order says it after Vile Vicky now this?

    • Rain

      I agree sweetheart ????. Plus this insinuation that being gay is this aweful horrible thing

      • Kirby

        I know for a fact you’d like me more if I were gay ?????

        • Rain

          That is probably true , cupcake ??????. I love my gay men . But you’re too cute to not keep around so I won’t hold it against you that you’re straight ???

          • Kirby

            I knew it ?? well I know you love me for who I am just like I love you for who you are ???? . I enjoy being straight too much Mother .. ?

            • Rain

              ?????????? It’s nice having a token trophy straight ????

              • Kirby

                Ahhhh so sweet , Mother of ???

    • Kirby

      Michers ??????????????

      • michers

        Hey hey … 😉

  • Kissme

    This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.

  • Tracy Ruotsalainen

    Question: Who are Gretchen and Slade giving these statements too? Owners of this page, Bravo, Andy Cohen, who? Whoever is giving these two the platform to say these statements are as bad as them.

    • michers

      I dont like they’re getting publicity to do it either but I’m not shading this site .

    • justanothermary

      It says they were on the Tomorrow Show. So they said all this on network TV? That’s just vile.

  • disqus_hTRmk7aL6X

    I believe it! Remember the bathtub scene where Eddie had to slam down an alcoholic beverage before he could join Tamra in the romantic bath? He looked like he was going to be sick. On the other hand – who cares??

    • michers

      If that’s the case , he didn’t need to marry Tamra and then stay with her for years . No one forced him .

      • disqus_hTRmk7aL6X

        Maybe she’s his “beard”? lol!

        • michers

          But why ? It makes no sense – that’s my point .

          • disqus_hTRmk7aL6X

            Who knows? Fame? People get married for all kinds of weird reasons.

            • michers

              Yeah , it’s possible I just didn’t it see it with him

  • Bebe

    Like if they are not planing to create caos and be hired again, there is no problem with bisexuality,,,he is not gay cause Tamra would of find out. They both work really hard in their Real Business unlike these two loosers looking for more 15 minutes of fame.

  • swizzle

    So many things to say here…but they are basing this all of something they heard? Not something they personally saw or witnessed. Morons.

    • September24

      Exactly swizzle! They didn’t witness anything. Right up there with hearing how Slade didn’t pay child support but that’s different!

    • michers

      That’s awful use gay to insult IMO along with spreading it about a married man who is also a stepdad . Hope Vicki is happy for another round of terror she created . And if Eddie were gay I’m sure he’d be with a damn man . This is such low base bs . Thanks Dubrow 🙂

      • Rain

        Just said a similar thing , sorry stole your thoughts

        • michers

          All good !

          • Rain

            Great minds ??

  • Khipp

    The Eddie “gay” rumors have been around for years. Something about Eddie being adopted at age approx. 21, by an older single man.
    Google it.

    Straight, Bi, Gay, whatever. I really don’t care if Eddie is porkin’ farm animals. Eh.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d154b603ceec0c938108082706b6816b8d8f46c6e4071d67801d35a41e48e943.jpg

    • samael

      yup, why are the RH ok with shaming someones sexuality? I could care less if he is bi

    • justanothermary

      As long as it’s not MY farm animals!

      • Khipp

        Or Old MacDonalds…ee i ee i oh. OH! LOL.

  • Sarcasitron

    I love how they say Tamra is manufacturing a relationship for tv when THEY GOT ENGAGED BECAUSE SHE HAD NO STORYLINE!

    • September24

      You nailed it! She purchased her own engagement ring.

    • Kirby

      Perfect ??????????

  • jtman24

    That’s the pot calling the kettle black … accusing Tamra of manufacturing a relationship for TV? Isn’t that their whole relationship? Wasn’t it started because Slade needed a way to stay on RHOC once he dumped Jo? And how long are they engaged, like 10 years? Get a life, you two!

    • Rain

      High 5 babe ??? love your post

    • Bebe

      Lmao,,,true!

    • Theresa

      The minute I read he head line the pot calling kettle saying went through my head. My other thought is somebody wants back on tv.
      I love the line ‘I don’t want to out him’. Of course not that’s why you’re saying it in such a ‘private ‘ setting !!
      It’s just really mean to say things about anyone’s sexual preferences, especially when you’re only guessing & if that person isn’t claiming to be & you are outing him that’s just out right mean & disgusting!

  • Kirby

    Did Vicki conveniently forget that Gretchen was the one who spread the rumors when Laurie said she saw Vicki have a 3some etc etc a few seasons ago ??? I guess Vicki will forgive anybody just to hurt somebody else (Tamra) .

    • Rain

      Vicky is vindicate and cruel and petty . She cares about settling scores and causing pain , plain and simple

      • Kirby

        Spot on Morher of ???

    • justanothermary

      I think Vicki is playing the game and she thinks no one notices. Vicki knows that she needs people to film with in order to remain on the show so she makes sure she has people to film with. Wannabes like Gretchen are perfect for this role because both she and Slade are the ultimate fame whores and will do anything to become relevant again. I think it’s hysterical that Vicki doesn’t know that we all see right through her.

      • Kirby

        You’re right on ?????? Gretchen is the perfect stooge and Vicki knows how thirsty Gretchen is to get back on the show and she’s playing Gretchen like a fiddle

        • justanothermary

          If Gretchen and Lydia are too stupid to see that they are being used, they deserve it.

  • Kristen

    Yes, because Gretchen and Slade are the experts on normal relationships!

  • Sean j

    This is a clearl example of what happens when your desperate for attention… She’s literally turning her appearance (which is in the trailer) into a storyline… it’s sad that she’s so concerned about all these other things when she is with a man who can’t afford to marry her on his own and who doesn’t really have any business of his own. I mean if Gretchen were to leave him today how would he make money as it’s been said that he manages Gretchen and she’s his only client to me that seems concurrent and lack luster becaus if he was as good as he says why not expand to create some financial security because if Gretchen does marry him she will be mating for everything whether indirectly or directly and at this point they are just starting to look thirsty for lights, & cameras to the point that they are manufacturing action to have something to talk about.

  • September24

    I do feel bad for Gwen Stefani who found out her husband was not all that straight. So there is a small part of me that would cringe for Tamra. She can shed all the tears she wants if true. I will still LOL. Cause it’s Tamra! hahaha!!!

    • anonymous82

      As someone who knew of Gavin before Gwen even became famous, I always knew that he was bi/gay. Gwen had to have heard whispers but chose to ignore them. People can be with whoever they want, it’s the cheating I have a problem with in Gavin and Gwen’s case.

      • Rain

        You make a valid point . And I’ve always believed that trust is more important than monogamy. Do NOT cheat . Talk to your spouse about your needs and desires instead of hurting them and your marriage

  • September24

    I need to know!!! What is the story??!!! LOL! They don’t care if he is gay – yeah you kinda do! If yes, you two famewh*res will be all over the media doing the “I told you so” tour. And that would be hilarious!

  • Gia F.

    I loath Slade..by far out of all the housewives hes the worst fame whore.

  • Laurie

    I’d love to hear what the “story” was. Best bet is that he is “bi” and there’s nothing wrong with that except if you’re going to step out on your marriage, don’t be married… unless your wife doesn’t care. I do believe where there’s smoke there’s fire but to make it a storyline is not cool.

    • michers

      I think Vicki is the one who started this years back and spread to the ones she knew would run with it.

  • samael

    Big Head ??? — the original famewhore who bought her own engagement ring and still can’t afford to book the – Walmart parking lot for the wedding! Big Head forgets that Vile was 100% in – for getting Big Head drunk to eagerly watch Big head lose control. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/df9f0ca1457d05bc994643349c673687049cc30b25b6701787bf0152fd839ed4.jpg

  • Rain

    STFU! Slime and his atrocious bride once again scrape the bottom of the barrel for attention and to stay relevant .
    Then Slime says ‘ we don’t care if Eddy is gay or not ?’ Then why the F ask you keep bringing it up ? Little pigs both of them ?????

    • Kirby

      Theyre trying so hard to get back on the show aren’t they ? They are both pathetic . What are they even doing these days ? Forget it, I don’t care ???

      • Rain

        He’s faking being something and she’s faking just about everything ???

        • Kirby

          The 2 them are a pair of idiots ??
