According to a new Facebook status update published on July 31, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Rossi reveals that one of Jeff’s children was indeed present at her engagement party to Slade Smiley.
“Beyond thrilled that Jeff’s (my late fiancé’) daughter was at the engagement party as well! It wasn’t shown on camera but she told me she knew her Dad was looking down on us and was very happy …of course that made me tear up. I miss him everyday and I feel like he sent me Slade. Jill is an amazing kid and I’m so glad I have been able to keep Jeff’s kids in my life! I love you honey and am so proud of who you have become,” Rossi revealed, while sharing a picture of herself with Jeff’s daughter.
Many fans have questioned whether she had stayed in touch with his children after his passing. On the show, she revealed that she was close with his children and were often offering advice to him. She even filmed a scene where she visited Jeff’s gravesite with his children.
