Gretchen and slade still dating 2016
Before they were adorable and affectionate Greg and Nene, Greg and Nene were on the brink of divorce and at each other’s throats. Long before Todd Tucker was in the picture, Kandi was engaged to Ashley Jewell, another man Mama Joyce hated.
The relationship ended on amicable terms, but the story turned tragic when Jewell was killed in a bar fight in Atlanta.
When Gretchen joined the show, she was seen as a gold digger because her terminally ill fiancée was many years her senior.
But some of these relationships had real potential.
And watching these men get kicked to the curb (or leave for even sadder reasons) was sometimes hard to watch.
For many of the Real Housewives, before there was happily wedded bliss (or at least happily coupled bliss) there were a few relationships that came and went as quickly as the new seasons of the show.
How could any of us forget the men that played such a huge role in these women’s lives?After her fiancée’s death, she started dating Slade, who had appeared on the “RHOC” seasons 1 and 2 with his former fiancée, Jo, and the couple often battled the other cast members who took issue with Slade’s unemployment and the fact that he had stopped paying child support for his son who was battling a brain tumor.
