Ready or not, the original housewives aka the Real Housewives of Orange County return tonight on Bravo!
On tonight’s season 7 premiere, Peggy Tanous, who is no longer on the show, makes a brief return as she and Alexis Bellino come face-to-face for the first time since Alexis found out that Peggy dated her husband Jim, “meanwhile, Tamra must work hard in order to make ends meet and is trying to increase her real estate sales. Enter super rich Heather Dubrow who is looking for a new lot to build on. Tamra befriends Heather, but will the other ladies welcome Heather into their inner circle or will this only create more drama between the ladies?”
The show debuts tonight on Bravo at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!
Moving on to Gretchen Rossi, 33, as the outspoken blonde, talks of her feud with Vicki Gunvalson and takes serious issue with Vicki’s treatment of Slade Smiley, considering Vicki’s new boyfriend Brooks Ayers also has issues with child support. “Vicki has always had a lot to say about Slade and his issues with paying child support, she always has an opinion on it,” says Gretchen to The BPlot blog. “Yet now, she’s dating a man who has had similar issues. She’s still being judgmental and a hypocrite. It escalated from there.”
Gretchen said the fight (the one that’s been shown on the previews) exploded over Vicki’s ignorance about Slade’s son Grayson‘s illness. Gretchen admits she “kind of lost it” when Vicki implied Gretchen doesn’t understand what it’s like to have a sick child. Vicki’s daughter, Briana Wolfsmith, has been seen dealing with health problems the past couple seasons. “Slade’s son … has been sick for multiple years, and I just thought she was really out of line,” Gretchen seethes. “That’s really where you kind of see me kind of blow my gasket with her.”
Gretchen is, however, happy she is no longer at odds with Tamra Barney. “I saw myself last season on camera, and I was just a very bitter, angry, resentful person,” she says. “I just kind of woke up one day and realized that’s not who I am.” That made Gretchen realize it was time to let it go and move forward.
I’m still not totally buying this sudden friendship between Gretchen and Tamra Sue. Perhaps I’ll have a change of heart once the new season begins airing!
In a separate interview with Life & Style magazine, Gretchen also discusses making babies with Slade! Though she’s still not ready to marry him.
“I know I want to have babies,” Gretchen tells Life & Style. “But I don’t know if I should have babies without being married, and I don’t know if I really want to be married yet.” Gretchen also promises we’ll see “a lot of personal contemplation” about her predicament on the new season.
Err wasn’t that her storyline last season???
Finally, newbie Heather Dubrow is speaking out about joining the show in an interview with Ology. And in somewhat of a shocker, Heather reveals she had never watched the series before deciding to sign on! “I think me coming to the show is sort of interesting, because I’ve never seen the show. I came in with fresh eyes and met everyone for the first time,” says Heather, adding that she started filming two days after agreeing to join the cast.
When asked how she got along with her castmates, Heather reveals she and Alexis Bellino had the most drama! “I’m really enjoying their friendships. Out of everyone though, I would say Alexis and I have had some friction, which I guess you’ll have watch to see what happens.”
Heather was also asked about the jab by Gretchen which has been shown repeatedly on the Bravo network for the new season promo. In the promos, Gretchen reveals she has never heard of Heather before, who can be seen telling everyone she meets that she’s an actress. Heather states, “Oh, it didn’t bother me. I’ve never gone by Heather Dubrow in my professional life, so I wouldn’t expect her or anyone to know.” Right Heather, because I’m sure everyone knows who Heather Paige Kent is!
