"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.

MILF Country...

Jo was hot. She had a nice body and definitely worth a bang. Funny how the one that used to be in Playboy turned out fat and ugly.

You really should know people before you go dissing them based on reality shows
They are both a lovely couple and great friends

Is that a real picture of Jeana??? or is it majorly photoshoped? WOW if so she lost major weight! funny this show along with Laguna beach and the OC and any shows about Orange County Ca make it seem like all of OC is glamorous when in fact it's actually not with the exception of a couple cities it's pretty ghetto in some areas just like any other city.

Kathie is a phony    

Jo makes me laugh! Whoever told her she can sing? She was a total user, and not even goodlooking! Reminds me of a young Buffy St. Marie! YUK! Thank goodness she is off the show. If Slade ever thought she was going to marry him, he was nuts anyway! That girl was out for what she could get with the least amount of effort on her part! Good riddance and I am glad that Housewives finally "threw out the trash!"

Thank goodness they are gone, but they aren't in Coto anymore. Jo has moved to LA County and Slade ended up losing his house. It's in foreclosure, last I heard.

Since you're so close, please tell "JoAnna" she sucks and can't sing and to please not make an album or ever be seen on TV again. She's an annoying spoiled whore. Thanks.

You know Jo reads this    

Yay! I am so happy that slut and pathetic loser aren't going to be on the show anymore. It got to the point where I would just walk away or fast forward during her scenes. She can't sing, she's ugly and above all else, she's incredibly vapid. Her whole Jessica Simpson-wannabe act was really pathetic. Bitch, it's not 2005 anymore and you can't act. Go away.

Here's the truth, y'all. Jo and Slade WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN asked back for the new season. They broke up at the end of season 2 for good when Jo moved to LA.
Neither a housewife, nor an Orange County resident...So no need for her
in the show. Think about it!! Why would they be asked back? TMZ should fact
check their "stories" before they go out to the world. The National Enquirer
has more factual info because they don't use the people that the story is about
as the primary sources of information. PLUS, N.E. PAYS FOR GOOD INFO.
Jo and Slade are just trying to spin their sorry
story to their benefit (we all know how good they are at this - did you see the article in LA TImes many months ago about Slade Total BS!)

Jo isn't the real story here, TMZ should do some digging on that new husband of Lauri's. He's a real piece of work that George Peterson. Apparently he gives rings that he takes back, sometimes he even takes the stones out. A knight in shining armour my ass. Both Lauri and her fug hubby are embrolied in bitter nasty custody disputes with their ex spouses. They are a NASTY pair.

Slade acts like a closet gay. Jo is just using him and whomever she can to get ahead. Face it honey you are gonna end up at the Mustang Ranch.
