As Reality TV Magazine recently reported, Peggy Tanous will not be returning to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki Gunvalson spoke to RTVM at the Real Housewives Tour at Atlantic City and revealed “Peggy’s not going to be joining us this year so we have a new cast member–you have to watch what happens with her. I just met her a couple of times so I think it’s going to be OK.” But according to Peggy’s Twitter profile at the time of the event, she was still a “Real Housewife of Orange County.” What does Peggy have to say about the rumors that she is no longer a part of The Real Housewives of Orange County?
Peggy has confirmed on her Facebook page that “After months of negotiation and soul searching, I have declined [Bravo's] offer to return to the show.” Really? The news is a bit surprising, considering on September 5 @PeggyTanous tweeted to a fan who had asked whether she was “kicked off” the show, she had replied: “Of course not. Start filming next week!!! Thanks for your support!”
Peggy adds on her Facebook page that “I just felt in my heart that being around the negative energy of certain cast members, being forced to have ‘dramatic’ confrontations and the time it would take me away from my family was just not a healthy path for me.” Last season, Peggy had a falling out with her former BFF Alexis Bellino about appearing as a cast member on the Real Housewives of Orange County without Alexis’ approval, and the friendship has been in disrepair ever since.
Peggy also reveals she and her husband Micah will be launching their own wine. Yes–another alcoholic beverage from another Real Housewife.
What do you think about the news of Peggy Tanous leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County? Would you buy some Peggy Tanous wine, or do you stick to Bethenney Frankel’s Skinnygirl or Ramona Pinot Grigio?
