Gretchen Rossi’s anxiety is evident on the May 29 episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Her boyfriend, Slade Smiley, helps her pack for a 5-day trip to Costa Rica she goes on with other Real Housewives of OC stars, Alexis, Tamra, Vicki, and Heather. She asks him to find out what she needs to take and when he tells her what she doesn’t want to hear she takes it out on him. Gretchen basically bites Slade’s head off — insisting he was “stressing her out.”
The kind of clothes Gretchen will need to pack are light cotton, quick-dry pants, and clothes that are almost completely worn out. Stress suddenly takes over Gretchen and she snaps at her boyfriend to stop reading the list because she doesn’t have any of the things he’s mentioning.
In the Real Housewives of Orange County episode, Slade patiently lets her go off on him for a few minutes until he says she can figure out she needs on her own.
Gretchen went to therapy the week before and she thinks there’s tension between her and Slade. Going to Costa Rica will be just the space both of them need, she believes.
