Is Gretchen Rossi ruining the chance of another season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County”?

It’s always good to hear that even TV networks have standards.

Bravo, Gretchen, Bravo./Bravo (what else?)

Bravo, Gretchen, Bravo./Bravo (what else?)

Case in point: Bravo is not happy that “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi is dating Slade Slimey – oops, I mean Smiley, says the New York Post.

Smiley, as I’m sure you recall, was featured in previous seasons of “OC” and – if you were unfortunate enough to see it – the *dating* show “Date My Ex” as the erstwhile significant other of former “housewife” Jo De La Rosa.

Could it be that Bravo a) can’t stand Smiley or b) thinks that even reality TV stars are in danger of overexposure?

Whatever the case, the network has not decided whether to greenlight “OC” for a fifth season. (Which honestly surprises me. The fourth – which just wrapped last month – was soooooo very entertaining.)

If the decision is made to bring it back again (please, God, oh please), an insider tells the Post, “We’re hoping that Slade is out of the picture.”

Then again, knowing Gretchen’s propensity for jumping from man to man, I don’t doubt it.

Update: A real-life Jersey girl (that would be me – metiny1 born, bred and still resides) will blog live on Facebook beginning at 11 p.m. EDT Tuesday, May 12, during the premiere of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Come join me and share your thoughts as we meet these five women. Click here or look up my handle,  TV Blogger Ava Gacser, on Facebook. I look forward to seeing you!
