Will Gretchen Rossi & Slade Smiley Ever Get Married?

When Gretchen Rossi returned from filming Season 4 of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club, she was greeted with the most adorable surprise. 

In a January 31 video shared to Instagram, the blonde beauty was seen walking up her house's porch after hauling in a slew of tan suitcases from the trip. Dressed in a cozy, stylish airport look of a white hoodie and sweatpants, classic short chestnut Uggs, brown-and-beige Louis Vuitton baseball cap, and camel-colored Sherpa jacket from Alo, Gretchen came to the door when Slade Smiley, who was filming the clip, told her "wait for it." 

Upon entering their home, she was delightfully greeted by their daughter, Skylar, who gave her a dozen white roses and pointed to a gold "Welcome Home Mom" sign and several white and gold balloons. 

But that wasn't all. 

While taking in the gorgeous decorations, Slade set off a confetti canon with black, white, and gold exploding pieces that fell all over Gretchen and Skylar. "After 11 days away filming in Morocco and a 19 hour travel day, it was so special to come home to these two, who had quite a surprise waiting for me! (Watch them scare the crapoly out of me)," The Real Housewives of Orange County alum joked in the caption of the clip. 

Gretchen went on to share how the expedition was "the longest amount of time" she had ever spent away from her family, noting how happy she was to see them again. 

She added how "wild" the trip turned out to be, crediting her raspy voice to the experience. 

"The show is going to be wild, can’t wait for you all to see it!" the California mom concluded her post.
