Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley have been together for over three years and although they are completely committed to each other, the Real Housewives of Orange County star has been holding out on taking the next step — until now.

On Monday night, reporter Tom Murro, creator of attended Gretchen’s Fashion Week party hosted by fashion360 and he claims that when he asked Gretchen if she was single, she replied, “Yes, but engaged. He’s over there.” Murro noticed that Gretchen was sporting a sparkly diamond, but it was on her right hang. When Murro asked where her engagement ring bling was, Gretchen replied, according to Tom, “I don’t need anything like that, just him.”

Gretchen has expressed her concern with Slade’s financial situation and even credited her reason for not wanting to get married yet on his debt including child support. However, Slade now has a super successful radio show on Playlist 92.7 and his new company, Grayson Entertainment, does brand integration. In other words, he’s definitely on the right track.

Slade, who is also in New York with her for Fashion Week, also chatted with Murro at a different event. “Slade and I chatted about who we liked and didn’t like of the NJ Housewife husbands and Slade decided Joe Giudice is just a Douchebag.  I said ‘can I quote you on that’? He said ‘sure’.”

UPDATE: Gretchen Rossi has taken to Twitter to deny ALL claims. She says, “Where do people come up this s**t? For the record, none of this is true, & Slade doesn’t even know Joe from RHNJ!”

Gretchen later added that the whole this is a misunderstanding.

Just three months ago, Gretchen appeared on an episode of Watch What Happens Live where she revealed that she and Slade where trying for a family of their own. She even said she wouldn’t be surprised if they come before a wedding or engagement.

It looks like these two are “Unbreakable.”

    I’m so happy for them. Slade got treated like crap on the The Real Housewives of OC. People’s financial situation changes and unfortunately that happend to him in a bad way. He worked to get things fixed and that is what matters. They have always been some of my favorite people from the show! I wish them a long and happy life with lots of babies!

    This is what i don’t get..she says she doesn’t want to marry him because of his financial debt. Then she says they’re trying for a baby. So, he’s too poor to marry, but not too poor to have a child with??
    I think she just wants a baby, and he’s the donor basically.
