"Housewives 3" No Jo and Slade?!

10/11/2007 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ just received promo materials for the new season of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Orange County," and we were shocked -- shocked! -- to see that Jo De La Rosa and Slade Smiley, the spiciest couple in the O.C. since L.C. and Jason Wahler, were nowhere to be found! Where'd they go?!
Real Housewives
Sources tell TMZ that the pair -- no longer an item -- declined Bravo's request for them to star on season three. We're told Jo had a commitment to her record label, and, more importantly, was over the show. Fear not, though, we've learned Jo (and Slade -- if you can stand it) could be getting their own "Hills"-esque spin-off, which will chronicle Jo's climb to musical stardom. Paging Heidi Montag! In fact, we're told Jo's label has hired one of Britney's songwriters to pen her stuff. Wait- is that a good idea right now?

Although they're no longer on the show, sources tell us that Bravo still used Jo to hype the new season, promoting a premiere party using Jo's picture. The nerve!

A Bravo spokesperson says that the decision to chop Jo and Slade had to do with the fact that, technically, she isn't a housewife anymore -- although, really, she never was. And the network has since added another housewife, Tamra Barney.

We talked to Slade, and though he wouldn't spill the beans on if a new show is in the works (so cagey that guy), he did tell us that Jo's music is "amazingly good," that the album is slated for a 2008 release and that he and his ex are building an "entertainment and production company" together. BTW, he stills sells insurance.

Another talentless gold digging slut milking her 15 minutes of fame. Who the hell is signing her?? What is happening to this country!!?? When did having no talent catapult people into the status of celebrity? Oh yeah... people like TMZ.... enough said.

Please stop this reality television craze. Our society is making celebrities out of people who are on the lowest rung of our society. Why do people watch this?

Come on! Who would watch this! Jo has no talent! She is old and has no history in the music business to even forge a psuedo career. What a joke!

Jo CANNOT sing! LMAO!
And I'm still not over seeing Slade stretching his flabby, soft body in his underwear and trying to look like he was actually in shape. Honestly, he seemed kinda gay to me.
Everyone is sick of 'reality" shows with NO REALITY to them!
No one cares about these people. Seriously, if God forbid one of them died, would we all care? Not at all. We'd all say "Did you hear that "so and so" from that show died? That's a shame." NEXT!

Jo was a slutty creep anyway. Who gives a crap if she and her worthless boyfriend aren't goign to be on the show! It's obvious why he's divorced and chases after a girl old enough to be his own "KID". In my opinion, they're both jack-asses!

Jo and Slade have moved on from the show. JoAnna is quite busy building her singing career. She has always wanted to perform, so she's taking the chance, now that it has finally come. While it is true that Slade and JoAnna aren't an item, the two of them remain very close. Yes, for those of you questioning my claims, my statement comes from being a close, personal childhood friend of JoAnna's.

I live in Coto De Caza. These people are an embarassment to our community. We are a wonderful family community. These characters are not the REAL anything except for being REAL fake.

Ms. Kitty,
you are right, the show is fake and doesnt show how it really is family oriented in Coto..its a great community, but tv really miscontrues everything.. that is why JoAnna and Slade opted not to come back for season 3
