SH “HIT AND RUN” THURSDAY: Andy Cohen “RHONJ Rumors Put To REST!”… Slade Smiley “Grayson DENIED Coverage”… UPDATE: Grayson Fundraiser WAS Filmed In November For RHOC…

August 30, 2012   3:40 pm

Whoever started the rumor re Andy Cohen calling one of the New Jersey Housewives names has been corrected… by MissAndy.

NOTE:  MissAndy and SH had a very nice twitter relationship… until SH wrote honestly about MissAndy’s “gay agenda!”  After that piece was published, MissAndy blittered SH.  That aside, good to see MissAndy setting the record straight.  MissAndy publicly stating anything derogatory toward ANY of the Housewives simply did not make sense.


 Gretchen Rossi, Grayson and Slade Smiley…

Despite any mentions on SH re Grayson’s Dad, Slade Smiley and his girlfriend, Gretchen Rossi, when it comes to children, all that “stuff” is put aside.

We hope nothing but the best for Slade Smiley, Michelle (Grayson’s Mother) and Gretchen Rossi in what must be an extraordinarily stressful time for them all.

Most of all for little Grayson.  According to Grayson’s Facebook Page, he has been denied an operation he needs.  Hopefully, the State of California will assist in having the decision reached by the insurance company reversed and Grayson will get the operation he needs.


NOTE:  There WAS a fundraiser for Grayson filmed at the VictorPaulSalon for the last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County…the fundraiser was not aired.  

From the November 2011 OCRegister:

All five of the reality TV housewives – including newest cast member Heather Dubrow – appeared at a charity event at Victor Paul Salon to raise money for the Beckstrand Cancer Foundation. The Newport Beach-based nonprofit provides financial and psychological assistance for cancer patients and their families.

Gretchen Rossi and her boyfriend Slade Smiley, left, from “The Real Housewives of Orange County” hosted a benefit in Costa Mesa on Tuesday night called “The Magic of Giving.” The event, at Victor Paul Salon, was held to benefit the Beckstrand Cancer Foundation. Slade’s son Grayson has brain cancer.

“Housewife” Gretchen Rossi and her boyfriend Slade Smiley were the hosts of the $50-per-person charity event, which featured a performance by illusionist Anthony “the Magic” Hernandez, singing by Jamie Hartmann and Tony Award-nominated actress Susan Egan, a DJ from Playlist 92.7 FM, silent and live auctions and appetizers concocted by members of the Orange County Restaurant Association.

A crew from Evolution Media filmed the gathering for an upcoming episode of “Real Housewives.”
