Gretchen Rossi is angry after the latest episode of “Marriage Boot Camp,” and she is speaking out against the show. Wetpaint reports on Monday that the former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star believes the show deliberately edited her scenes. Rossi is getting help with Slade Smiley from the counselors on the program, but she is not happy with the editing.

Rossi and Smiley were forced to participate in a morgue exercise on “Marriage Boot Camp.” However, Rossi claims the editing of the scene was incorrect and gave viewers the wrong impression about the couple. She has been speaking out against the reality program on her official Twitter account and getting fan support.

Rossi wants viewers to know that a voice-over was added to her scene with Smiley at the morgue, and the show also cut out some of the important parts between the couple. The angry reality star has also clarified that the counselors asked couples to get involved in the lives of the other cast members. She believes the program is leaving out crucial scenes that would shape the opinions of the viewers.

Slade is also speaking out by posting a long message to fans about the morgue scene. He explained his sick son was on his mind during the scene, so it was emotionally difficult for him. In addition, he shared the tears were real, the fear was real and his love was real.

After the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” fans would expect Rossi to be used to editing that changes things. She still wants to marry Smiley, and their appearance on “Marriage Boot Camp” is not having an impact on her plans. However, some fans have accused Rossi of creating a fake relationship with Smiley to boost her reality TV presence. She has denied this rumor by pointing out the relationship has lasted for years.
