Gretchen Rossi The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Gretchen Rossi Reveals Slade Cried Through Her Proposal; Babies May Come Before A Wedding!


By now you may have heard that Gretchen Rossi proposed to her boyfriend Slade Smiley, and of course the Real Housewives of Orange County were there to capture the moment!

Gretchen is opening up about her (or is it Slade’s?) special day where she proposed to him on top of a skyscraper in Downtown Los Angeles! She tells Parade, “I was so nervous to propose! You’ll see it this season on the show. It was filmed and it was a pretty spectacular engagement. I can’t tell you details, but I can tell you the fans will not be disappointed. There are a lot of different steps that happened in the proposal and Slade cried a lot, I can tell you that!”

Gretchen, who says she is a woman who knows what she wants and goes for it, admits that she and Slade have not even picked out a wedding date. There is no rush to get married right away, and children might even happen before she gets to walk down the aisle!

“We definitely haven’t decided on a date. It took us four years to get to the engagement, so I don’t know how long it will take to get to a wedding, but we have babies on the mind, so we haven’t decided if we’re going to go the baby route first or the wedding first. Planning a wedding is a big undertaking and I like every last little detail to be perfect. Slade’s never had the big hoopla wedding either, so I think its going to be something that he’d really like to do, and so we’re just going to plan it when it’s the right timing. We’ve talked a lot about having a destination wedding, and we talked a lot about Europe because we love it there, so we don’t know yet. We’re just enjoying this time now,” reveals Gretch.

Are you looking forward to seeing the engagement on RHOC? Do you think it’s strange when couples will get engaged with not even intentions of getting married on the horizon?
