Gretchen Rossi is toasting her big day and although we bet fiancé Slade Smiley has got some tricks and treats up his sleeves to help her celebrate, we thought we'd honor the birthday girl by rounding up five of her best Real Housewives of Orange County moments. Happy Birthday, Gretchen!
5. Gretchen Gets a Rolls Royce
Speaking of birthdays, remember that time Slade gifted Gretchen a Rolls Royce? Great choice except we're not sure how you're ever going to top this one, Slade. (Actually, judging by the clip below, we're pretty sure Gretchen doesn't want you to top this.)
4. Gretchen Surprises Slade in the Shower
I think we can all agree: birthdays at the Rossi/Smiley household are a little different than at yours and mine. Gretchen repays Slade's outlandish gift by giving him an outlandish surprise birthday party…while he's in the shower.
3. Gretchen Performs with the Pussycat Dolls
All the ladies of the OC were in the audience to see Gretchen belting out "Fever" with the Pussycat Dolls. The jury might still be out on how well she did but, you know what, we'll just let you watch for yourself to decide.
2. Gretchen and Tamra Bond Over Sex Toys
Gretchen and Tamra Barney's on-again, off-again friendship has been the stuff of RHOC fodder for years. But the greatest moment of awkward bonding the girls might have ever had was when they went shopping for sex toys together.
1. Gretchen Proposes to Slade
A gorgeous dress, a beautiful view and a heartfelt speech: it's exactly the proposal every little boy dreams of. After spending the previous year getting cold feet, Gretchen finally proposes to Slade…and Slade proposes right back.
