Real Housewives of Orange County

Oh, dear. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis Bellino and her husband/king Jim Bellino have hit the blogs to defend their honor against enemy forces:  Peggy Tanous (who was quoted as saying she dated Jim back in the dark ages because he had “toys”), Alexis’s castmates, and of course, the evil blogosphere, media, commenters, and anyone who dare say a negative word about the Bellino name.

We’ll start with Alexis, who we saw shut Peggy down in last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County after Peggy attempted to have a drunken conversation in the doorway of a limo on their many issues, namely that Peggy and Alexis have swum in the same gelled hair dude pond. Anyway, limo conversations are reserved for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Peggy. Only Kyle Richards can do that in housewives land. She owns the trademark.

Posting a four-page screed to her Bravo blog, Alexis blames Peggy for their failed friendship, and further explains the behavior at the crawfish trashbag party:

“[Peggy’s] daughter London had broken her arm over the summer, and I had texted Peggy to tell her I was thinking and praying for her. So at Vicki’s when she’s telling me the story of what happened to London’s arm, I was merely relating to her daughter and what she was going through when I made the comment about having a rod in my leg. I WAS NOT COMPETING with a four-year-old! That just sounds so ridiculous to even say. The fact that Peggy would even say that makes me once again think she is looking for drama.”

She makes a good point about Peggy’s silence in the five months break they had from filming, and questions why Peggy wanted to have the conversation at the party rather than in a more calm environment the next day. Personally, I think that Peggy was urged to go outside to talk to Alexis at the insistence of a producer who was probably pissed the dinner party was free of drunken screaming. Peggy has said that she left the show because she was unwilling to participate in certain story lines, and I think she may just not be any good at provoking Alexis properly enough to get her to fight.

“Throughout the evening I ignored Peggy’s negative remarks towards me. I have to admit that when she made the ridiculous comment about me pouring ketchup over her dessert in San Antonio last year, the thought of pouring ketchup over her head instead of over her dessert instantly ran through my mind. And I chuckled at the thought of it, but I’m only human! At the end of the evening when she walked out to my limo claiming she wanted to “talk,” I had to question her motive. She has had five months to come to me to talk about everything, and she chooses now?

She had the entire dinner party to talk to me, and instead she continued to insult me with under-breath remarks. Not to mention the fact that over the summer when I texted her about London’s arm, she could have easily texted back that she wanted to talk then, but she did NOT. Instead, she waited until the end of Vicki’s dinner party, and I didn’t feel that was the appropriate time — it didn’t feel authentic either. I volunteered to meet her for coffee or lunch the following week, and she never called — so you tell me who really wants to work things out, and who’s looking for attention. The way she has handled herself both on and off camera makes me very curious about her intentions.”

Alexis also goes on to defend her husband Jim against the hen cackles of Tamra and Vicki, who took that evening as an opportunity to get some digs in at the departed househusband.

“Let’s move on to the women once again bashing my husband. Isn’t it funny how Jim doesn’t talk about them, want to be around them, use any energy on them at all, and yet all they do is berate him? I really hate to give this topic any of my time at all, but the truth is that it seems so easy for Tamra and Peggy to sit on a couch and just persecute my husband. It’s so disgusting.”

Jim decided to stop filming the show after he saw what the editing monkeys had done to him, which was pretty smart, but it doesn’t mean these bitches won’t continue to talk about you. On this particular issue (whether or not Jim was wrong about keeping his past relationship with Peggy a secret), it’s easy to sympathize with Alexis, but Jim should have mentioned it when the women started to hang out, and certainly when the women started to film a reality show. Lucky for us, Jim has decided to start blogging! In his blog, “Keeping It Real Weekly” he explains why he never told Alexis about Peggy (it was written in all caps by Jim himself):

“I thought when I decided to step back from the show and let Alexis do her thing, I would be allowing the best things for her life while I went back to what I do best: business. Instead, I am more the topic of discussion now than when I was part of the show. Without provocation, I have become the whipping boy of Orange County…

WHEN ALEXIS AND I BECAME SERIOUS, WE HAD A VERBAL CONTRACT THAT NEITHER OF US WOULD EVER BRING UP OR DISCUSS OUR PAST RELATIONSHIPS. I WAS VERY HONEST AND UPFRONT THAT I HAD DATED A LOT ALL IN SEARCH OF THE WOMAN THAT I WANTED TO CALL MY WIFE, AND SINCE WE CHOSE TO LIVE IN THE TOWN THAT I GREW UP IN, WE AGREED THAT THERE WAS NOTHING POSITIVE TO BE GAINED FROM BRINGING UP OLD FLAMES, OR HAVING DISCUSSIONS ABOUT WHO HAD DATED WHO, AND ALL THE STRINGS THAT COME ATTACHED TO OPENING THAT CAN OF WORMS. WE MADE THIS AGREEMENT OUT OF RESPECT FOR ONE ANOTHER, NOT AS A WAY TO HIDE OUR PASTS. WE TOOK EACH OTHER AS WE WERE, AND THAT WAS THAT.”

In the blog, Jim also refers to himself as the “whipping boy of Orange County” which I have to disagree with; that position belongs solely to Slade Smiley.

TELL US: WHO DO YOU THINK IS TO BLAME FOR ALEXIS AND PEGGY’S FALL OUT? DO YOU THINK JIM SHOULD CONTINUE TO BLOG OR JUST FADE AWAY? WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD HAVE TOLD ALEXIS ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PEGGY AND JIM? WILL YOU MISS PEGGY ON THE SHOW?


On last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis and Peggy quit each other and Peggy quit the show! We learned more about Heather and well, she’s very confident (and wealthy), isn’t she? Vicki and Tamra haul their boyfriends to Catalina where they proceed to embarrass themselves on national TV with a PDA orgy. Aaaahhh… The C in OC, certainly doesn’t stand for class, does it?

Things begin at Vicki‘s Cajun-themed dinner party where Peggy and Alexis face off over who is the boobiest, dumbest, and has the worst broken bone story! They tepidly make nice as they try to size each other up while peering over their enormous fake racks.

Apparently Peggy wanted to tell Alexis about her very vintage Jim experience, but Jim made her swear not to. When it was unearthed, Jim accused Peggy of stalking him and breaking into his house. Alexis being Alexis, decided it was exclusively Peggy’s fault that her husband didn’t deign to tell her about their fifteen year old relationship. Why wouldn’t Jim tell her from the get go and then they could laugh about it amongst friends? I sincerely doubt either Jim or Peggy wants to rekindle things.

In an all new interview, Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino takes some time off from setting women back to discuss the new OC season amongst other things!

Talking to Celebuzz, Alexis touches on her issues with former friend turned arch-nemesis Peggy Tanous, her thoughts on Russell Armstrong’s tragic death – yes she has opinions, as well as her business endeavors – no she has yet to give up on her clothing line! Below are excerpts from Alexis’ interview -

Late last year, Peggy announced that she is leaving the show. Was it a relief for you to hear that?
It’s so hard, because one day, I wake up and I’m thinking, “What happened? Where did our friendship go wrong? Why did we end up where we are?” And then the next day, I wake up and I’ve seen an episode of how terrible she was [to me], or I remember something that happened and how it was such a shady friendship the minute she got the show, [which] makes me [think] “Oh my gosh, I’m so glad she’s off [the show].” But right now, at this exact moment … I don’t put a lot of emphasis on thinking about her. If she was there and she was a part of the show, great. If she’s not, great. I wish her well. In the first two episodes, you’re gonna see her and I get into it, and it’s gonna probably be the last time you’ll see us interact together.

Do you think your friendship can be salvaged?
I always hope that a friendship can be salvaged, just because I’m kind of a dreamer; I like to think the positive in everything. But at this point, I honestly don’t know. I think there’s been a lot of things that have occurred over the past year and a half, and I just saw a side of Peggy that – I mean, for her to be able to flip that quickly, like, the minute that she became a member of the show, to just switch and go become good friends with Tamra [Barney], and forget about me. I mean, it was like she was all about the limelight and not really thinking about a true friendship.

Did your perception of Real Housewives change amid the Russell Armstrong tragedy?
I mean, that is just something that you just – I mean, it took my breath away! I can’t picture something like that happening. I am sure the show played a little bit in it, just because your life is exemplified in front of millions [of viewers], and things can be said about you that aren’t necessarily true. Once it’s out there, people believe it whether it’s true or not … But I think, at the end of the day, you have to remember, it’s a show, you’re here to entertain people. Don’t take it too personally. I think that him and Taylor, obviously, had a lot going on, and I just wish it would have had a different ending, you know? You always think, “What if?” And for Taylor, it feels that way.

Tell us about the new Housewife, Heather. Did you all get along with her?
Well, I think that, at the end of the day, when it’s all said and done and the season plays out, I think we’re all gonna kind of get along with her. Her and Gretchen [Rossi] had a little bit of a tiff at the beginning. Then, Heather and I get into it a little bit in the middle, and then we have a big blow-up in episode 10-ish. So, once that was all said and done, I felt like Heather and I moved past it and pushed everything aside. I can’t really tell you what it’s about, but I break down in tears and have eyelashes falling off. It’s just a nightmare. It’s not going to be a pretty episode for me [Laughs] … I think Heather is a little buttoned up. Sometimes, she talks like she knows more about things than other people. But, at the end of the day, I think that she’s a really, really sweet person, and I really genuinely like her personality.

So, tell us a little bit more about the second line of Alexis Couture.
It is so crazy! Well, I have two lines. I have Alexis Couture, by myself, where I don’t have anyone else working on that with me, except for my production manager … I only have three dresses in that line, because I launched my first dress, the Black-Braid Maxi, last season, and it went like crazy. I sold more of that one dress than all of the dresses than Alexis by Tal Sheyn sold. That dress is still selling, and I’m gonna bring it out in another color … And then I partnered with Tal Sheyn for Alexis by Tal Sheyn, because she was designing one-of-a-kinds for me, and I had a vision for what I wanted to do. There’s only one of me, and I couldn’t do it! So, together with her, we came up with my first Alexis by Tal Sheyn line. That one did really, really well. Now, we’re launching my second one, and now my second one is doing better than my first one even did and it hasn’t even launched yet! We’re out there marketing it. It hasn’t launched on the show, but it is just crazy! It’s so exciting!

Is the goal to eventually open up your own store?
We just started looking for retail spaces to have a showroom. We are in boutiques now. We’re in one in Orange County, and we’ve almost solidified two or three in Los Angeles. And then we’re even looking at go overseas. Israel is very interested; Australia is very interested. We have a lot of customers from Europe. We’re just getting our feet into those markets and we’re gonna be in boutiques throughout the United States and throughout the world.

Alexis shared some new photos from her Alexis Couture clothing line, and those are below!

In other Alexis news, she is also sharing the secrets to her very happy marriage in an interview with Radar Online, because clearly, we all aspire to have a happy marriage like hers!

Alexis, who shares a previous failed marriage with hubby Jim Bellino, advises couples should never spend more than two nights apart, treat each other with respect at all times, and not call each other names when arguing. “No matter how mad you get… you cannot take your words back,” says Alexis.

In addition to having 20-minute meetings each night after dinner to catch up, Alexis reveals her and Jim  always pray together, go to therapy regularly and have a date night at least once a week.

And finally, a new episode of the OC Housewives airs tonight on Bravo! On the 2nd episode this season titled “Southern Hospitality,” Vicki hosts a dinner party, but Peggy and Alexis stir the pot with a fiery feud. Drama is at such a high boil that Peggy ends up making a game-changing decision. Meanwhile, Gretchen poses nude at a charity photo shoot; newbie housewife Heather Dubrow flaunts her privileged life; Vicki and Tamra embark on an overnight trip to Catalina.

The episode airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ALEXIS’ INTERVIEW? WOULD YOU TAKE MARRIAGE TIPS FROM HER? AND THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR NEW PHOTOS FROM ALEXIS’ CLOTHING LINE & THE PREVIEW!

Last Tuesday marked the season premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County. Now in it’s seventh season, Bravo’s original Housewives series suffered from dismal ratings last year, but after shaking things up a bit, garnered about 2.3 million viewers last Tuesday – up 10% from last year’s season premiere.

Pretty impressive for a show most people swore they wouldn’t watch. I knew you would! Perhaps new Housewife Heather Dubrow, along with Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi putting their feud to rest, is what attracted more viewers. Or maybe it was other newbie, Sarah Winchester who was bringing the curious?

Sarah, billed as a “Friend of the Housewives,” is a close friend of Gretchen’s and a self-proclaimed heir to the Winchester Rifle fortune. Sarah made her mark when she showed up at Vicki Gunvalson‘s season kickoff party in a pair of ratty, old jeans and hair she forgot to comb. It wasn’t a great first impression.

An even worse impression comes in the form of Sarah’s dating history – most prevalently that she has been crushing hardcore, and apparently having a fling, with former Housewife Jeana Keough‘s eldest son, Shane Keough.

Fans of the show may remember Shane for his straight-up a$$hole outbursts and blatant disregard for his mother – oh yeah and his baseball career. Well it seems Shane has been hooking up with the 33-year-old Sarah for about a year. “They’ve had a fling for over a year,” an insider revealed to Star Magazine. Shane, a former Minor League Baseball player, is eight years younger than Sarah. So, does that make her, like, a cougar?

Sarah’s alleged fling with Shane may make sense given Jeana’s guest appearance this season. Perhaps we’ll see Shane as well! I know you’ve missed him! Upon hearing the news that he is supposedly dating Sarah, Shane immediately denied it via Twitter, answering: “Nooooo<<Weird that I am unaware of this,” when a fan asked about it.

Sadly for Sarah, Shane (who isn’t even admitting to dating her) is a “major upgrade” from the “sleazy guys” she usually dates. Where on earth does Bravo find these classy women?! According to the insider, Sarah whose seeming more and more like a grifter by the minute usually gravitates towards the sugar daddy types!

“She was living off older men,” the insider explained. “She was flying to the Hamptons all the time, always seen court-side at Lakers games, yet she never worked.” Because she’s an heiress. #duh

Apparently, much like Gretchen scored her spot on the show through her affiliation to wealthy former fiance, Jeff Beitzel, Sarah attracted producers, not through Gretchen, but through one of her wealthy, older men! “This rich dude, Kurt,” the insider says, failing to elaborate on just how this “Kurt” is connected to honchos at Bravo. Kurt, a sixty-something Newport Beach businessman, is a former boyfriend of Sarah’s, whom she was able to parlay her relationship with into appearing on RHOC.

Moving on to other less scintillating Housewives news, Vicki opened up about the season premiere and wants us to know she’s a whole new gal! We’ll believe it when we see it, Vicks!

Reflecting on how far she has come since her inaugural season, she is glad Gretchen and Tamra have made amends and are working to put the past behind them, although, she was as shocked by their new friendship as viewers were! “Watching Gretchen and Tamra go to lunch and discuss their past issues was interesting to me. How can Gretchen just put the past behind her and simply forgive Tamra for all the hurt she has put her and Slade through? From what Gretchen has told me, it was easier to forgive then keep fighting,” Vicki explains in her Bravo Blog.

“Maybe that’s a lesson for all of us. I just don’t know if I could do have done it. While I was watching Tamra give Gretchen a friendship bracelet with a key on it and “locking up the past and entering a new future,” I thought WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE?!?”

Vicki, like Tamra, is really, really impressed by Heather. And Vicki thinks they have a lot in common. Sit down for this comment. “Tamra introduced Heather to our group by inviting her to my dinner party. When I met her, it was an immediate ‘Wow’ moment,” Vicki muses. “She was absolutely stunning, classy, and the only one who brought me a hostess gift. I liked her immediately and thought. . .’finally someone I can connect with.’ ” I thought Tamra was her BFFL?! What the heck?!

Vicki also talks that awkward moment when Alexis Bellino ran into her ex-friend whom she believes is secretly in love with her husband after they hooked up fifteen years ago. “I felt bad for Alexis tonight seeing Peggy [Tanous] walk in my dinner party. You could cut the air with a knife. The ended the season finale last year with such an uncomfortable situation with Alexis finding out Peggy dated Jim [Bellino]. How uncomfortable.”

Finally, Vicki gives us an update on her divorce to Donn Gunvalson. Vicki claims the two get along well. “Donn and I are at the final stages of settling our property and our divorce,” Vicki explains. “Donn is still active in my kids’ lives, and we are very amicable, which I am very grateful for. We truly want the best for each other, and realized we weren’t the best for one another.”

“As you will see this year, I am dating a great man named Brooks [Ayers]. He has become my best friend, my true partner, and someone that I really enjoy being with,” she concludes, reminding us that this will be a great season. I hope so!

SURPRISED BY THE RATINGS? DO YOU THINK SHANE AND SARAH ARE HOOKING UP? IS SARAH A GRIFTER OR DO YOU THINK SHE REALLY IS AN HEIRESS? ARE VICKI AND TAMRA STILL FRIENDS OR HAVE THEY “BROKEN UP”?

WOO HOO! A new season of Real Housewives of Orange County and these biatches better bring it to redeem the great dramaful state of California following the Beverly Buzz Kills debacle. Tamra you do call the shots – to the bartender! Line ‘em up!

Things begin with Gretchen in her totes normal house with a totes normal bathroom, despite the rose petals on the floor. And that’s one thing I’ve always loved about Gretch. Her cutie little beach house that never turns into a McMansion she can’t afford. Gretch is curling her Kim Zolciak Weave Collection wig while wearing over-the-knee boots with a white denim jacket when Slave walks in. He wants to know what she’s late for? Just lunch. Gretchen is elusive and Slave isn’t allowed to come with. He must stay home and pick up dog poop or something.

After using the word “Babe” about 300 times in five minutes, Gretchen confesses she is actually having lunch with her arch nemesis, Tamra! Cue the suspenseful music! The two evil queens of Orange County will meet with each other in a blonde vs. blonde face-off, to once and for all, bury the hatchet!

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.”

VICKI GUNVALSON’S EX DONN GUNVALSON IS BATTLING CANCER

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???

VICKI’S DAUGHTER BRIANA WOLFSMITH ELOPES IN LAS VEGAS!

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!

The new season preview is below!

Are y’all ready?! Real Housewives of Orange County premieres next week and the four blondes and one poor brunette are about to start arguing – Coto-style!

Tamra Barney, a four season veteran of the reality show, is talking about what viewers can expect besides plastic surgery, bickering, and tanning!

Discussing her newly repaired relationship with former nemesis Gretchen Rossi, Tamra admits the show encouraged them to keep the drama high! “Well, as you know, there was a lot of outside input that led to our bad relationship. Then it just escalated,” Tamra explains to The B Plot.”It got to the point where we were verbally attacking each other for the sake of the show.”

“It just felt time to build a bridge and get over it. In the process of doing that, we’ve realized that we really like each other and we get along really well. We’ve become extremely close through this adventure.”

Surprisingly boyfriends Slade Smiley and Eddie Judge have also buddied up and have bonded over bicycles! “They’ve become pretty close. They both cycle, so they ride on the weekends. The four of us go out on weekends, so it’s nice.”

Tamra has also connected with new Housewife Heather Dubrow, whom she describes as “too nice.” “I liked Heather the minute I met her,” Tamra shares. “I worried, however, that she wasn’t going to fit in with the group. I mean, she’s so nice, classy and elegant. We don’t run like that on the show we don’t run like that. Haha. I honestly thought she would run from us. ”

Tamra is excited about what viewers will see of her life this season and she promises no more porno-moments! “Eddie got very camera shy after that,” she says referring to the infamous bathtub bare-all. “There will be no more steamy scenes.” #thankyoulord.

“You see a lot of me finalizing my divorce and figuring out how to put my life back in order. Even though I don’t film with my kids, I talk about them also so people will see me try to raise three kids who have a difficult time with the divorce,” Tamra reveals. “I also start several new business, which includes a fitness studio and a wine of the month club.”

When asked about the stress of embarrassing herself on a reality show, Tamra confessed she turns to alcohol to cope. Oh, dear… “I drink a lot. Haha,” she jokes. “I think for me, I just try not to take it too seriously. I know that I say things that piss the girls off and they say things that piss me off, so I’ll be mad for an hour and then I’m over it. You have to be that way, or you’d go crazy.”

Viewers will also see Vicki Gunvalson going through her divorce from Donn Gunvalson, whom she was married to for close to twenty years! Speaking to the Chicago Sun Times, Vicki talks about her history with Donn and her experiences this season! “I never would have guessed it — that our marriage wouldn’t make it — when we started this seven years ago,” Vicki confesses.

Vicki and Donn met when they were both working at a hardware store, of all places. “He got a job with Home Depot, and they moved us out here [to California],” she describes. “We had no intentions of being on a TV show. It just sort of happened.” Surprisingly, Vicki admits the show contributed to her marital issues, blaming the time commitments and pressure for driving the couple apart. Vicki did not mention Donn’s recent cancer diagnosis though she tweeted about it days ago.

Vicki also claims this season has been a positive one for her and she is excited to have people meet her new deadbeat man Brooks Ayers. “This season, I’m in a much better place,” she says. “I’m becoming the person I feel like I was always meant to be.”

Regardless of their issues, all the ladies promise the drama is still at a maximum. “No matter where you put cameras, there’s going to be drama,” Vicki assures us. “It doesn’t really matter what state you’re in. I think we’ve proven it with this franchise.”

Surprisingly, Jeana Keough and Peggy Tanous will also be back for a couple episodes. “Jeana does come back, we pick up where we left off,” Tamra hints.

Vicki also posted a picture of herself with Jerry Springer on Facebook. I wonder if he will be hosting the next reunion! We could only hope…

Real Housewives Of Orange County premieres February 7th at 9/10c on Bravo.

ARE YOU BUYING THIS FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN GRETCHEN AND TAMRA? SHOULD GRETCHEN TRUST HER? DO YOU THINK VICKI AND TAMRA ARE STILL FRIENDS?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE PHOTO OF VICKI AND JERRY!

Fans of Real Housewives of Orange County always sympathized with OG housewife Vicki Gunvalson‘s long-suffering husband, Donn Gunvalson, whom she filed for divorce from in October 2010. Here’s another reason to feel bad for the former househusband, according to his stepson Michael Wolfsmith, he’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

In a print-only interview with the National Enquirer, Michael, 26, says this is another in a series of “weird” events that hit the Gunvalson household: “It has sort of been weird around here for the past year or so. Donn has been very sick, Briana eloped to Las Vegas last fall, and my mom is dealing with a lot of different emotions. It’s a very stressful time right now in the Gunvalson household.”

Vicki was the one to break the news. Michael says, “My mom was upset when she told us. Since they are divorcing, we don’t see Donn as much as we used to. But we still care about him and are pulling for him.”

Vicki, 49, filed for divorce from Donn, 58, back in 2010 after 16 years of marriage. Vicki has since moved on and has been dating Brooks Ayers, a fellow who also happens to have child support issues, much like the ones she reamed Slade Smiley on about last season, for almost a year.

Her divorce is not yet finalized, and per the Enquirer report, things are getting down and dirty in their divorce proceedings. “Donn even hired a forensic accountant to determine the value of Vicki’s company, Coto Insuraance & Financial Services,” said a source.

But not to worry, another Enquirer source says, “Even though they are no longer together, Vicki is Donn’s biggest supporter. She’s praying for his complete recovery.”

Well wishes to Donn.

TELL US: THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH DONN AND VICKI?

UPDATE – Vicki just tweeted: Thank you everyone for your well wishes for Donn. He is doing very good considering his diagnosis. PSA levels have dropped to almost normal.” Great to know Donn is doing better!
