On April 21, 2017, former Real Housewives of Orange County star, Gretchen Rossi‘s fiancée, Slade Smiley, was assaulted. And the man accused of battering Slade, 43, is no stranger to the couple.
According to the police report, Jay Photoglou, has been identified as the perpetrator in the incident, that occurred at A’s Restaurant in Newport Beach.
“Walking to the valet stand located at the north end of A Restaurant parking lot, Photoglou exited the restaurant and struck Smiley on the back of the head.” The report states.
Gretchen and Jay are no strangers. She accused him of stalking her by leaking nude photos, threatening her with violence and spreading lies to the press, all which, she claims, contributed to the loss of her RHOC gig.
On April 2, Photoglou was arrested and charged with 242 PC Battery and 240 PC Assault against Slade.
