Us Magazine reports new “housewife,” Peggy Tanous, will join “The Real Housewives of Orange County” cast for the show’s next season.
The website says the 41-year-old mom is a former swimsuit model and TV host and won’t shy away from the drama.
“People call me ‘Feisty Peggy’ and I can definitely be feisty! I’m an Aries [with a] very strong personality. Friends say I’m the life of the party,” Peggy tells Us Magazine.
The new “housewife” says she joined the cast after “Real Housewives” star Alexis Bellino suggested she go on the show.
Alexis, 32-year-old stay at home mom, joined the show last season. Peggy says Alexis’ time on the show inspired her to go on as she saw the show providing an outlet for Alexis to overcome postpartum depression.
“When Alexis got on the show, we saw her, and my husband said, ‘Maybe this is something you should try because you’ve already been in the industry your whole life, and I feel like this could be something really good for you,’” she says.
Peggy tells Us Magazine the show was a great way to balance her career and family life.
“It was kind of a perfect way for me to kind of get me back in the swing of things but not take me away from my family too much,” she says.
While Peggy’s feisty, she tells the magazine she didn’t get involved in any drama this season, “I didn’t clash with anyone! I got along with everyone.”
Peggy says she had a particularly strong connection with Tamra Barney, as the two have a lot in common with similar personalities and daughters around the same age.
The new housewife also connected with Vicki Gunvalson over their zodiac sign. “[W]hen I met her, I was like ‘You have got to be great because you’re an Aries, because I’m an Aries and I’m great!,’ she joked, stating they have a whole “Aries vibe going.”
Peggy will be bringing her “Aries vibe” to the new season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” which will premiere March 6 on Bravo.
