I'm so beyond thrilled with Slade's good news! Last year, Slade launched his radio show, Radio Slade, on Playlist 92.7 and it has only grown in popularity and has became the highest rated hour on the station! And now, Krantz Media Group is going to manage the syndication and distribution of Radio Slade! I'm so proud of my man!

Celebuzz: The 'Real Housewife of Orange County' star is adding her designer name to the Rolls-Royce

Exciting news! Andrew Mortimer-Lamb  GM with Rolls-Royce Newport Beach has asked me to custom design a 2013 special commission Ghost.  Read all about it on

Gretchen Rossi‘s signature style is going on the road — courtesy of Rolls-Royce.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star is teaming up with the luxury car brand in Newport Beach, Calif. for a specially commissioned collaboration of the 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost Gretchen Christine Edition, Celebuzz can exclusively reveal.

“They asked me to custom design a Rolls-Royce,” she said of her newest business endeavor based on her high-end handbag collection. ”I never imagined I’d drive a car like this, let alone design it. I’ve always been a fan and enthralled by the beauty of the car.”

And like a true artist, the 33-year-old is making sure she’s entirely hands-on in the creative process.

“I’m headed to England to the factory to do the finishing touches,” she said.

So what are her must-have custom car accessories?

“I want to make the car for the 2013 working woman who also loves to have fun and lives in luxury,” she said.

Features include a place to hold champagne bottles and glasses, so a little bubbly is “chilled and ready to go,” Rossi said. But it isn’t all play for the busy television star.

“I can be working from my car — whether it’s on my iPad or computer — and I’d love to have a place for them in the back of the seats,” she said. “That’s my life. As people know who watch the show, I am a very hard worker and I love to play and have fun.”

And it wouldn’t be a Rossi Rolls without the proper color palette… pink!

“Everyone knows I love my pink. So it has to be involved somewhere,” Rossi said, adding that the custom car will be available for lease or purchase by this summer. “I want it to be sophisticated with touches of pink piping on the seats. Believe it or not, they can even take one of my nail colors or lipsticks and match them exactly to the colors on the car!”

As for Rossi’s fellow Housewives, she won’t leave them in the dust. Said Rossi: “They can all get in the car and I’ll take ‘em for a ride.”

Beauty Community Tip of the Week: Punches of Coral for Spring

I spotted this ensemble on Pinterest and I really love the bright colors! The look was suggested as a great wedding reception outfit (“you've gotta bring a little demure to the dressing table, without looking totally prissy at the reception”), but I think the attire is just perfect for spring! With the fun color combo highlighting punches of coral amidst a sea of baby blue, plus finished off with fab skyscraper platforms, it totally gives me spring fever! Love it with the essie nail polish and everything, so fun and playful!

Press & Media: Star Pulse - Beauty, Brains, And Big Plans: 'Real Housewives Of Orange County' Gretch

Check out this fun interview I did with Jeza Belle from Star Pulse! We chatted about children, marriage and future projects. See a snippet of our interview below and check out the full article at!

Jeza Belle: You are number 30 on the ‘Top 100 Entrepreneurs to Follow” list on Twitter, with this in mind, tell us about your many businesses starting with your Gretchen Christine Collection.

I’m so proud that I keep getting recognized on that list! Also, I have been on the cover of some great magazines as well for being a young woman entrepreneur. This is a great source of pride for me because I went after my dreams and started companies I’ve always wanted to. I’m a self-sufficient woman in that regard and it feels great.  The Gretchen Christine Collection launched the Pink collection in October and sold out. We just got a new shipment in and already some items are sold out again. A part of the proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Charities for America. This in itself is really important to me, as when I started my businesses I wanted to make sure that they not only offered customers quality product, but that they  also gave back responsibly to the community.

Jeza Belle:
As a drag queen, I of course love makeup, tell us about your line of Gretchen Christine Cosmetics.

What’s great about the cosmetics is that the line is popular and consistent with amazingly loyal customers.  We make great products in great colors for the everyday woman. It’s the way to bring out your natural beauty, which is the concept behind the line. In fact, right now we are looking at distributing internationally to retail stores, which is exciting!

Jeza Belle: You’ve gone through some hard times that the public and your fans have shared in with you, what keeps you going?

First and foremost it’s my faith and relationship with God. I was raised in a Christian home and that has kept me grounded in life. On top of that, I have family and friends who support me and stand by me no matter what is said or spun, both on and off camera. Finally, in the last four years Slade has been my rock. He’s everything I could have ever imagined in a guy plus one hundred times more. He gets such a bad rap on the show which bums me out because he really is a great guy. I’m lucky to have someone that loves and supports me like him and encourages me to go after all of my dreams.

Press & Media: Lalate: Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney, Lauri Peterson Prepare for RHOC 2013


Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney and Lauri Peterson are getting ready for the RHOC 2013. As Bravo delivers a Real Housewives of Orange County marathon block this morning, some fans are wondering which faces will be back on Bravo and while will be gone.

First, one of the key disputes of the 2012 season is resolved, with a breakup, and an exit. Brooks Ayers and Vicki Gunvalson have broken up. After a season of battles between the then couple and Tamra Barney, Vicki recently revealed that she and Ayers have parted ways. Ayers is not expected to be make any appearance during the new season.

Second, hit new cast member Heather Dubrow will return to the RHOC cast. Dubrow has made a appearances on Malibu County with Reba McEntire this month along with other new TV projects.

The core of RHOC will be back. Vicki, Tamra and Gretchen are all returning. Tamra tell news this weekend “A lot of you have asked me how I have transformed my body. the answer is simple… diet and exercise.” While other housewives from other franchises are delivering workout videos this month, Tamra has taken it one step further, launching CUT Fitness OC, first detailed on LALATE in 2011. Tamra, in turn, is sharing her amazing workout tips with news this month. “Body Pump has transformed my body so much that I have become a certified Pump trainer. We offer this class at my studio @cutfitoc . If your not able to find a Body pump class at your local gym, I am happy to say they NOW make a home Pump DVD (bar and weights included) that you can buy from Beach body. I swear you wont be disappointed!”

Meantime, Gretchen Rossi tells OK Magazine that she and Slade Smiley want to have a baby. “We’re working really hard right now to have a baby. He actually has a vasectomy so he has to get a reversal and we have to kind of figure that all out.”

And who is the big secret cast member set to appear during the 2013 season? As LALATE reported last year, expect to see Lauri Peterson return for the 2013 season. While she may not be a Bravo full housewife, LALATE has been reporting that she is allegedly filming with the women, and will be featured in Tamra’s wedding preparation scenes.
