The Sapphire Pool & Day Club Grand Opening Party

Slade and I had a great time going to the grand opening party of the Sapphire Pool & Day Club in Las Vegas this past weekend.

The weather was absolutely perfect for some fun and sun and it was a blast to party with Entourage star Adrian Grenier, Baywatch star Pam Anderson, and Playmate Crystal Hefner (among so many others).

Go Red for Women!

Last week, I had so much fun hitting the runway in red to raise awareness for heart disease. As part of LA Style Fashion Week, the Go Red for Women Fashion Show was held at the Vibiana in Los Angeles. Proceeds benefitted the American Heart Association.

This special charity runway show was hosted by celebrity stylist, Anya Sarre. The dresses were quite the hit and ranged from basic sexy red evening gowns to dresses with very intricate detailing. I wore two gowns, one short one and one longer one. I loved them both!

Among the celebs who also strutted their stuff were my Bravo sister, “SHAHS of Sunset” star Lilly Ghalichi, as well as the gorgeous Kim Porter. Check out our cute photo! Don't you think we look like Charlie’s Angels? It was so much fun!

I’m so happy I was able to be part of such a fantastic event, all in support of the American Heart Association. Here's video coverage of the event by Glam Fit magazine.

Slade and I are such goofballs! Here's a fun video of Slade interviewing me for Modern Salon TV to give you more details on the event.

Last Weekend's Shenanigans

Here are some personal pics from a fun-filled event packed weekend with great friends! We went to La Costa resort in San Diego after work on Friday to meet up with Nicholas & Cathy Sparks at the Drew Brees Charity event.  We ended up also hanging out with Chris Harrison from the Bachelor and had a very fun filled night with him and friends as these pictures show!  My favorite pic is when Nicholas Sparks and Chris Harrison both took my hand and we tweeted “Who do you think is going to make me cry first”? Too funny!  I also raced Chris Harrison on the Golf Course which is why you see us holding flags (he won of course) but in all fairness I think my long dress and earring were weighing me down. LOL

Saturday night we went to one of our dear friends surprise birthday party and had another great time as these fiesta pictures show! We had the balloon girl for the kids come up and make us balloons figures and then one of them got a little out of hand as you can see!

Sunday night we were excited to be invited to Kendra and Hank’s charity event for a another great cause!  It was at a beautiful resort and it was exciting to meet a lot of the people there that night and make some great new friends.

Friends and family are the most important thing to me in the world am I am so blessed to have such great ones!

Hope you all had a great weekend! What did you all do?

Magic of Giving Event Honoring Grayson Arroyo-Smiley & Benefiting the Beckstrand Cancer Foundation

Gretchen Christine Rossi and Slade Smiley host charity benefit to raise funds for Beckstrand Cancer Foundation on Tuesday, November 22nd at the Victor Paul Salon in Costa Mesa.

Costa Mesa, CA, November 15th, 2011 - One of Orange County's Favorite Housewives Gretchen Christine Rossi & Slade Smiley host “The Magic of Giving” an evening of top entertainment including a performance by acclaimed Illusionist Anthony Hernandez (Anthony The Magic) on Tuesday, November 22nd at 7:30pm at the Victor Paul Hair Salon in Costa Mesa to benefit Beckstrand Cancer Foundation. The evening will also include a silent auction, musical performances and a delicious assortment of appetizers provided by the Orange County Restaurant Association and their supporting restaurant partners & desserts provided by Sweet Spils.

Gretchen and her boyfriend Slade felt compelled to do a fundraiser benefiting cancer patients and their families to create awareness for the challenges families face both emotionally and financially when a loved one receives a cancer diagnosis. They know all too well the challenges cancer poses to patients and their families as they are currently battling the cancer of Slade’s son Grayson. "When my son Grayson was diagnosed with Brain Cancer, I was not just emotionally destroyed by the diagnosis of cancer, but after 7 brain surgeries and no cure, I was financially destroyed by the disease” expressed Slade Smiley. Slade chose Beckstrand Cancer Foundation as the beneficiary for this event as he felt "Beckstrand understands the financial strains that cancer can place on a family and they are offering individuals and family's financial hope. Hope to get back on their feet, pay the mortgage or just put food on the table.”

Beckstrand Cancer Foundation
helps bridge the gap between research and conventional social services by providing financial assistance, patient advocacy, counseling and more. To learn more about the services offered, please visit

Tickets for the Magic of Giving Benefit are $50 available at The Victor Paul Salon is located at 763 Baker Street in Costa Mesa. Complimentary valet parking will be available.
