Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley: “Really Good Sex” Keeps Us Together


Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley have been together for years, and, even after their stint on The Real Housewives of Orange County came to an end, they're still going strong. What's their secret?


"We are best friends and he is the best guy ever," Gretchen told "He is my best friend and that is why we work. Honestly, even if you tried to twist this, the funny thing is that we know what it is and that is all that matters. We laugh every single day. He is my soul partner.”


As for what keeps them together, Gretchen admitted: "Really good sex."


While the couple have been engaged since 2013, they still don't know when they plan to tie the knot. No rush though, because they seem content with the way things are right now. In fact, Gretchen seems to be happier with her fiancé since leaving Real Housewives.


“We served our time and the show became SO TOXIC and SO NEGATIVE and SO FAKE," she said. "People just created whatever storyline they wanted to keep themselves on TV. For me, it was the same story that they wanted to beat dead. I wanted to grow. I wanted to expand and grow into other avenues of my life.”


One of those new avenues? Gretchen and Slade plan on having a baby in the future! Now that's something we can't wait to see happen.
