The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi is faced with a big decision; she has failed marriages and engagements under her belt, yet her long-time boyfriend Slade Smiley is ready to pop the question. He really wants to make it official, but she is hesitant. Costar Tamra Barney doesn't think that getting engaged to Slade is the best thing for Gretchen, because she has so much going on for her, while Slade just wants to cause trouble with them.RELATED: AllAboutTRH Exclusive Interview With Gretchen Rossi
Heather DuBrow, on the other hand, thinks the engagement idea is a good for the couple. While she only saw what fans saw on Tuesday's episode, she thought the entire conversation between Gretchen's dad and Slade was cute. "I thought Slade asking for Gretchen's hand in marriage was very sweet. I know he is close to G's parents. It was the appropriate thing to do," Heather wrote on her blog. It sounds like this couple does have one The Real Housewives of Orange County star rooting for them.
"Scott had a lot of good comments about marriage and relationships. He seems like a smart man. Telling Slade he has to clean up his image and debt situation before moving forward was sound advice," Heather continued, pointing out that Slade has to change everything that Gretchen fears. She doesn't want to be dragged down by Slade's horrible finances and his child support issues which have been made public to the world.
