Following last week’s drama filled premiere, episode two of the Real Housewives of Orange County is coming our way tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.
On the new episode titled “Shameless In Seattle,” after being with Slade for a year and half, Gretchen still doesn’t know if she is ready for marriage again. Tamra opens up about her emotional divorce to pal Fernanda, while Alexis spends the morning at the park with her close friend Peggy and their daughters. The women have been friends through their pregnancies, but now that their kids are getting older, they find themselves becoming more competitive. And Vicki heads to Seattle for her annual insurance conference, leaving Donn alone, yet again.
Meanwhile, newbie Peggy Tanous opens up about her life and discusses joining the show in a new interview with the Daily Pilot. Peggy, 42, mother to two daughters – Capri and London - is a former model and public speaker. Peggy reveals ever since she was a little girl, she told her mom she wanted to be the next Marilyn Monroe.
As for the show, Peggy says she was actually approached about joining the cast a few years back but declined as she was a newlywed and didn’t feel it was the right time. The idea however came up again when she saw pal Alexis Bellino on the show. “[Alexis] was like, ‘I think you should try out’,” said Peggy. “I was like, ‘I don’t think so. I’m a mom now. I think reality [TV] can be a little scary’.”
So what can we expect from Peggy this season? She reveals while most of her day to day is “boring,” she did share a very sensitive part of her life – - her battle with post-partum depression. The series will show her going through a healing process.
And while she has yet to see the entire season, Peggy states she “would definitely do another season.”
