"Real O.C." Guy Really Arrested

2/20/2009 7:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Slade SmileySlade Smiley from "The Real Housewives of Orange County" -- yes, there are guys on that show -- was picked up by Costa Mesa PD today on a civil contempt warrant.

We're told Smiley was popped this afternoon and is currently being held on $10,000 bail.

It's unclear what the warrant is for ... there's a buzz it involves unpaid child support, but so far we haven't confirmed it.

UPDATE -- Slade's people are saying he was "unaware" that the warrant existed until he was arrested. The warrant had to do with money he owed his baby mama for their son who has been suffering from a rare form of brain cancer for several years. He says, "This is an unfortunate situation that has occurred. My son is very ill and we have been working on resolving the issue of support vs. his enormous medical bills with the appropriate agencies for several months now. It is sad that individuals would take advantage of the situation in an attempt to defame and discredit me in such a public manner. For those who know me, there is nothing more important than my children."

Mr. Smiley has (8) counts of contempt of court; failure to follow court orders related to back child support from 2005 and 2006 for his youngest son. He has never had full custody of his children, that was all staged for the "reality" television show.

Whoever the TV Executive was that thought, let's give Jo & Slade a show, needs to be run out of Hollywood. Jo is just a ugly, gold digging, no talent slut, but SLADE IS A WORLD CLASS DOUCHE. Of course their TV show totally bombed. I hope that TV Exec. is flipping burgers right now.

I have seen this show and it is really embarressing. I live in the OC, but am NOTHING like these phony women. They are in their 40's, trying to act like they are in their 20's.

Ole Photoglou is crying his eyes out all over the Internet. This slob is really using his name. He's a pysco douche bag that is as ignorant as ignorant gets. Now he's crying around because Mr. Slade
Smiley got a little action from the big 'Bubba" last night. Hey photoslob, next time you do the domestic violence thing, maybe you can spend some quality time on the inside with 'Bubba'.

Photoslob is lying. He set Slade up cause he can't have Gretchen, She does not want that loser either, she picks dead beat dad Slade over Jay the idiot.
Jay potoslob likes to slap women around, he has a domestic violence mark on his record. He is also a crazy dude creeping around Gretchen's house. Get a life loser!!!

Really? How exactly did Jay set Slade up? Did he carjack Slade, drive him over to Gretchen's, put him in Gretchen's bedroom, make him lie to the police about being in Las Vegas, and hack into the LA County computer to conveniently place a warrant for Slade's arrest on file?

I would love to see a show on the reality of the tools..I mean reality "stars" ..

These camera whores are probably up to thier fake jewels in hock..
they are on camera so desperate to show the world how fabulous they are...

The women are nasty and pathetic...and the guys are smarmy and look like used car dealers...
The only one I like is Vickys husband. What is this funny smart guy doing with such a nasty ugly bitch? are lucky that he does not just leave your nasty ugly ass....
You are not funny and just annoying and self absorbed...

jon and kate are octomoms role models    

Every single family on this show has prostituted themselves and their children for fame, and look at the results. They think they look young, and hot and cool, but they only look old, ridiculous and washed up. They think eveyone envies them, but they don't realize everyone's laughting at them.

the interest in this show and the cotomom drama is similiar: we are all just waiting for the trainwreck to happen. the OC housewives never fail to delvier on the trainwrecks. can't these women (and men) stop their insane pursuit of what they perceive to be hip and young and cool. Forget about it! It's not gonna happen. Your're all past your prime, overccoked, overdone, overinjected, overinflated. get over it! try to age graceffuly instead of trying to look like a bunch of overaged hookers!
