During Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’s epic Real Housewives extravaganza on Wednesday Gretchen Rossi hinted that fans should check back in with her in 30 days to see if she was pregnant.
While it’s no surprise that Gretchen and her longtime love Slade Smiley are trying to have a baby it seems that once again the former Real Housewives of Orange County couple is putting the cart before the horse all in the name of attention and publicity.
Mere days after Gretchen’s appearance on WWHL, Slade spoke out to Radar Online telling them ‘We Are Going To Have A Baby’ and making it seem like the couple is already expecting a bundle of joy except that’s not the case at all.
“We have not given up and are not going to until we have a child of our own,” Slade told Radar.
“Gretchen just finished with IVF,” Slade revealed. “Gretchen and I will find out if it was a success in 30-60 days and are just so grateful for everything that we have and for the family that we are building. I cannot wait to be a dad again!”
So, once again the OC couple isn’t expecting – yet and hopes they will be in 30-60 days.
Meanwhile, the rest of Slade’s interview seems like one big advertisement for their doctor, who is linked in the original story, telling Radar, “We are beyond thrilled and our doctor, Co-founder and Medical Director of the Southern California Reproductive Center, Dr. Mark W. Surrey, was the best! He made this so much easier on us and lives up to his reputation 100 percent.”
I’m happy for Gretchen and Slade and I really hope they get to have a baby or two but I just think they go about this stuff all wrong. IVF doesn’t always work, and can take several rounds, so why put this out there and put pressure on Gretchen to announce she’s pregnant in the next 30-60 days – that’s stress she doesn’t need. This interview feels like a ploy to make money and extend their 15-minutes. I think they should have waited until they were actually pregnant to say anything because how sad will it be if in 30 or 60 days Gretchen has to announce the IVF didn’t work and she’s not pregnant. However, I wish them nothing but luck in the journey to have a baby!
Thoughts on Slade’s interview? Should the OC couple have waited until Gretchen was pregnant to announce any news? Sound off below!
