Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” cast member Jo De La Rosa has entered a new chapter of her life, both personally and professionally. After gaining popularity on the early seasons of the Bravo show, Jo left when her engagement to Slade Smiley ended. In the years since, she embarked on a long-term relationship with music composer and artist Taran Gray.
Jo’s feelings for Taran blossomed when they first connected on the dating app Hinge, and their relationship took root online during the pandemic. They announced their engagement in July 2021, and in May 2022, they tied the knot in a magical ceremony with an Enchanted Forest theme in Palos Verdes Estates, California. Jo expressed her joy and admiration for Taran, emphasizing how he’s the love of her life.
Since their wedding, Jo and Taran have taken a significant step professionally by establishing their creative agency called SocialPlay, specializing in TikTok content to connect brands with their target audience. Additionally, Jo continues to create lifestyle, beauty, and fashion content through her digital platform, Jo De La Rosa Gray & Co.
As they celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary in May 2023, Jo reflected on the joyous moments and shared that their first year of marriage had been filled with laughter and a strong bond. They’ve faced challenges together, emerging stronger.
Jo continues to share updates about her life with Taran on social media, offering glimpses into their love-filled journey. Taran, in turn, shares endearing sentiments about his admiration for Jo. Their story is a testament to finding love and building a life together even after the end of a high-profile reality TV stint.
