OC Housewives Star Slade Smiley Speaks out After Arrest

The Real Housewives of Orange County Star Slade Smiley was arrested and released from jail this weekend, and he is speaking out. Smiley, 40, was arrested Friday by Costa Mesa police on a $10,000 outstanding civil contempt warrant after authorities said he fell behind on child-support payments for his son Grayson, who is battling a rare form of brain cancer.

The OC Register reports that Slade spoke out on Monday after being released. Slade said the following in a released statement by his representative.

“My son is very ill and we have been working on resolving the issue of support versus 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.”
