In her first social media post in over two years, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jo De La Rosa announced that she'd ended her second engagement and moved back to Los Angeles. Her first engagement was to Slade Smiley, who is now engaged to and having a baby with Gretchen Rossi, also a RHOC alum.
Jo then posted a picture of a "Home Sweet Home" doormat on Instagram, writing, "Welcome to my home. Welcome to my heart. It’s a hot mess but I’m learning to accept it’s a beautiful mess. In this home, I’m learning how to be on my own again. In this home, I’m building a business at night while I work days. In this home, I’m learning from my mistakes and as I start this new journey, I pray I find the girl I lost in my relationship and can be a light if you’re on your own journey."
It's the only picture she's shared so far, but to hear her tell it, she doesn't have a lot in her place yet.
"A couch, a mattress, a desk and my clothes are all I have to my name in this new apartment - this is what starting over looks like – and I couldn’t be more ready to re-build and get out of my own way," she wrote. "Will you join me?"
Good luck on your next chapter and creating the perfect nest, Jo!
