“Every year I’m like there’s not going to be any drama and then of course there is tons of drama. First episode, me and Tamara are already boxing each other so you can’t put five flamboyant women in a room, strong confident women, and not expect some drama and catfights,” said Gretchen to the HollywoodLife.
Gretchen also mentions that she and boyfriend Slade Smiley will be working through their own set of problems throughout the season. When asked if marriage is still on the table for the two, she coyly responded, “Yes, and you’re going to have to watch and see what happens!” They two are rumored to be engaged.
Gretchen goes on to sing the praises of the two new housewives on the show, Peggy Tanous and Fernanda Rocha. “I love Peggy this season, she seems like a really cool, down to earth girl. She seems to fit in with the group well and Fernanda, the Brazilian lesbian as I like to call her, she spices it up a little, she stirs the pot a little, but she’s really fun,” revealed Gretchen.
Meanwhile, Peggy appeared on E! News yesterday during which she gave the show a tour of her house. And yes, it was the same exact house that the she and her hubby recently defaulted on.
Peggy revealed during the interview that she knew Alexis Bellino before doing the show and that Alexis wasn’t happy about her decision to join the cast. The reason? Peggy stated that Alexis told her the show “was her own thing.” Safe to say there will be some friction between Alexis and Peggy on the show this season.
The entire cast also appeared on the Today Show today for an interview, during which Alexis admitted she did not want Peggy on the show, however citing a different reason than what Peggy stated. According to Alexis, she and Peggy have been friends for 4 years, and she simply didn’t want Peggy to do the show for Peggy’s own good and to protect their friendship. Alexis added that the show tends to cause friction between people. A photo of the entire cast from their Today Show interview below.
