Real Housewives of Orange County: Slade Smiley… He’s Doing Stand-Up Comedy!
Do ya think I can make it as a stand-up comedian? Whaddaya think, Wretched???
’Cause YOU laugh at my jokes, right? I hear you laughin’ all the time! I’m funny, right?
I’m always laughing… I mean you make me laugh all the time. I’m laughing AT you, but that still counts as laughing…
To keep the Real Housewives of Orange County fresh and topical, the dumbasses at Bravo have decided to delve into unknown territory… the comedy business. Yep, the comedy business… and Bravo has handpicked Slade Slimey to represent the OC franchise in this new endeavor… here.
From The OC Weekly…
Q: When did Slade realize he had the balls to make people hardy-har-har on stage?
Gretchen: I am better at telling this story, so let me. First of all, never did we have that realization. What happened is, Slade came to me and was like, “Honey, there is an opportunity for us to host at the Improv and what do you think about doing that?” I thought it sounded great and the next thing I know he tells me a week later, I forgot to tell you…I’m doing stand-up. Long story short, he decided without me knowing anything about him doing stand-up.
Slade: It’s going to be more of a variety show because I really don’t think I am that funny! We do have some very funny and successful comedians attached to the show and it’s really a little bit of Gretchen hosting and me doing some storytelling and poking fun at what our reality has become because of our association with the Housewives.
We really are monkeys in Bravo’s circus and we are embracing that and using it as an opportunity to give people an inside look into what happens and address all of the stuff that is out there. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
Slade made an astute observation in the paragraph above… he and Wretched are merely puppets being controlled by the puppet masters at Bravo.
