Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi is about to become an actual housewife.

The Bravo reality star popped the question to longtime boyfriend Slade Smiley, according to Us Weekly. The report states that Rossi made the proposal on April 14 in a “romantic” setting that took place in Los Angeles and was filmed for an upcoming episode of the series. Rossi was previously stated that she didn’t believe a proposal had to be traditional.

“A guy doesn’t always have to do it,” she said to the magazine a year ago. “We have a good love story.”

Meanwhile, although Slade and Gretchen haven’t always been in the good graces of their co-stars, fellow “RHOOC” cast members support the move.

“I guess she decided to buy instead of lease, which is good!” said Alexis Bellino.

Fellow star Tamra Barney is also going to walk down the aisle, with a wedding with fiance Eddie Judge set for this summer.
