#Team Mark And Jo Congratulations to Jo and Mark – let’s hope this wedding happens a lot sooner than Gretchen and Slade’s!
Her active social life had to suffer because of Slade’s wish to commit and settle down once more.
During the second season of the show, de la Rosa decided to move out of Coto and ended her romantic relationship with Slade Smiley.
Well, if I can be completely honest, this wasn't a project I wanted to do at first.
After doing two seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County I really didn't think that I was going to go back to doing reality television. But [Bravo] came to me with the show, and at first I was like y'all have to be crazy--like, there's no way I'm doing a dating show with my ex--who does that?
“Thank you all for the sweetest words and wishes ever on my engagement!
Your kindness and support truly means the world to me and I’m absolutely humbled by the amount of love and support we’ve received on our engagement announcement – excited for all the pre-wedding adventures to come! She elected to not participate in the 3rd season of Real Housewives after scoring a recording contract with Immergent Records and a spin-off Bravo show, Date My Ex: Jo and Slade.She was once engaged to Bravo househusband Slade Smiley.Although the two ended their engagement, they remain friends, and Smiley is De La Rosa's closest confidante and business partner. as she looks for love, pursues her music, and comes to terms with the complicated relationship she shares with her ex.Currently, De La Rosa lives in Los Angeles, where she is pursuing her career as a recording artist. Born in Lima, Peru, and an only child, De La Rosa and her parents immigrated to California when she was 3 years old and settled in the Orange County city of Mission Viejo.She appeared alongside veteran housewife Vicki Gunvalson on the Real Housewives of Orange County.
