"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."

Hey Slimey Slade, How is it that you are so in tune with your childs unfortunate situation yet your ex wife has made a testament to him, has a website devoted to him and is doing all she can to make him whole. You, on the other hand have a website, with not ONE picture of him, not one testatment to him and there is nothing on that website but pictures of you, pictures of your catches and pictures of your has been television show. Where's your son Slade Slimey? Nowhere!!!!
Put the spin on it anyway you think will save you from not getting your share of panties next weekend. Fact is, you're in the system right now. You're a deadbeat and a player and your lack of child support speaks volumes to your lack of character.
Those skirts you're chasing get old and you are getting old too. Your son doesn't even have a chance in life without the love and support of both parents. You've chosen to ignore that. I'll defame you till the cows come home. I'll defame any father or mother who ignores those they have brought into this world and looks the other way. You see Slade, I'm a parent of three kids and when I became a parent of the first child, my life took a different turn. I knew that child needed me, not for a few years or a few weekends or even an hour a week. That child needs me for a lifetime. I had two more children after that and none of them mean any more to me than the other, despite their short comings. They all mean the same to me equally. I'm divorced, but I stay in their lives each and every day, not only financially but physically. You know what Slade????? You hold their hand for a short time but you hold their hearts forever.
You hold any skirt for a few hours on a weekend and hold your heart forever. You're a pitiful excuse for a parent and you don't deserve the title of DAD. That's a title that we DADS, hold with pride and earn. You'll never earn it. DEADBEAT

Vicki was right, google him going to jail in 2009, he had no right to call out her boyfriend when here it is, he went to jail for failure to pay his child support too.

Deadbeat Dad!
Your children deserve better then this, how awful you shirk your financial responsibility for your children. They will ALWAYS remember that.
