Although she may not be on The Real Housewives of Orange County anymore, Gretchen Rossi is keeping busy with great things! Most recently, her and fiance Slade Smiley appeared at the Sundance Festival. Rossi spoke exclusively to us to provide details on how Smiley and her spent their exciting time there. 

“Slade and I love the entertainment business and Sundance is a great way to network and continue to meet producers, writers, and directors in the business, so we can continue to do what we love- create, whether in front of the camera or behind it,” Rossi dished to us.


“Slade was recently filming for an appearance as a cowboy in a mini series in Durango Mexico coming out on the History channel this May,” she continued, explaining that, “It was great for him to be able to discuss that epic project with the many talented producers, writers and directors out at Sundance.”

While at the festival, Rossi also worked with a blog we love and work with- Rumor Fix! She told us, “I was asked to host for a CBS affiliate ‘Rumor Fix’ while out there and interview the stars that were attending the gifting suites or film premieres. It was an honor to be hired to do that job at Sundance as I continue to expand my hosting career.”


“I interviewed some great and inspirational people such as Gina Rodriquez, who just recently won the Golden Globe for Jane the Virgin,” Rossi stated. “She was so humble, beautiful and a sweetheart,” Rossi expressed, adding that, “Kellan Lutz was another fun interview, and not only is he good looking but he has a big heart. You can view these interviews and more at www.rumorfix.com,”


In addition to hosting, Rossi also got to catch up with some familiar Bravo faces, telling us how “It was great to run into so many old friends and meet a lot of new ones. We stopped by ‘The Agency’s’ suite to say hello to Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky and ended up going to dinner with them and a group of fabulous people, laughing the whole night and telling fun stories.”


Rossi saw Richards soon after explaining to us that, “The next day I asked Kyle to go with me to the Stella Artois suite and autograph a chalice for their www.water.org charity where they have teamed up with Matt Damon to help bring water to families for five years with just a simply purchase of one of these Chalices! It’s simple things like this that bring me great joy. Something so easy can being life change to another family. I was honored to be asked to do it and even happier to share this great cause through my social media outlets.  You can visit www.water.org for more info.”


Rossi also told us that, “When I wasn’t working, I was attending the gifting suits and was gifted everything from beautiful ski outfits from Superdry to a trip to Aruba with Slade at a gorgeous hotel! We can’t wait to book our trips! I also attended Chefdance on Saturday night which Bravo collaborated with and it was a wonderful culinary experience, as I am a huge foodie.”

Rossi and Smiley also attended an event that was near and dear to their hearts, as Rossi told us, “Sunday night Slade and I attended a private dinner hosted by R.J. Mitte from Breaking Bad and hosted a number of well known actors and people in honor of Shriners Hospital for Children. It was advocating bringing more actors with disabilities into Hollywood and the great work Shriners does for their patients. Due to Slade’s son Grayson and his condition, it was important for us to be a part of a great cause. Grayson has appeared on Glee and it was one of the best moments and memories for him.’

Finally, Rossi wrapped with stating, “We got home at 2am last night and are exhausted but we had a wonderful trip full of work, experiences, networking, and fun.”

This sounds like a great trip!

Recently, Rossi spent time with Richards and other Bravo-lebs at a Christmas party.

  1. […] to a new Real Mr. Housewife report, The Real Housewives of Orange County star Slade Smiley was labeled as a housewife hunter, who would date anyone in front of the camera. And even though […]


  2. I miss her. She was always good classy and for some old fashion pot stirring.

    I hope that Gretchen and Slade come back but if they don’t I’m glad they found each other and happiness. Glad to see their hands in so many pots!
