LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Gretchen Rossi says Slade Smiley helps other before he helps himself. And now Gretchen is trying to turn that around. In her latest comments to WeTv, Rossi explains the imbalance in her and Slade’s relationship before the show.
Rossi tell news that “I am hopeful Slade will realize that tends to stick his head in the sand about a lot of things, and doesn’t really know why he does the things he does. I am hopeful he will really dig deep and challenge himself to find issues within himself and the reasons he is always willing to help others but not himself.”
Rossi admits that vocalizing her thoughts to Slade can be problematic. She hopes that she does it in a way that brings them closer, not further apart. “I am hopeful I will continue to realize what it is that makes me do the things I do and why I react the way I do to certain things. I hope I will be able to articulate what it is that I need from Slade and in a nice way not a harsh way.”
Slade thinks that Trista and Ryan are an inspiration. “I’m excited to learn from them because they have been dealing with not only media on TV, but then getting married on TV and a 10-year marriage that has survived all the public scrutiny. It’s hard enough staying together as a couple in the spotlight, but to last ten years puts them in a category of a select few. I’m really looking forward to getting to know them better.”
