Real Housewives of Orange County

Peggy Tanous will not appear on the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Orange County.

Vicki Gunvalson revealed the surprising news over the weekend during the Bravo Housewives tour in Atlantic City as she confirmed filming had indeed began on the seventh season of the Bravo hit show.

When asked if there were any changes with the cast, Vicki stated: “Peggy’s (Tanous) 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.”

Wowzers! This also confirms what we’d been hearing which is that Alexis Bellino will be returning for the new season.

The news of Peggy’s departure is a bit shocking as she confirmed her return on her twitter page almost a month ago. After a fan asked her if she was kicked off the show in early September, Peggy replied, “Of course not. Start filming next week!!! Thanks for your support!”

Apparently Bravo had a change of heart.

Peggy has yet to comment on her likely firing though she did post this interesting quote on her facebook page days ago: “Good thought for a Sunday! “Rejection is God’s protection!” Love this quote thanks to my beautiful friend Annette years ago!”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON PEGGY’S DEPARTURE? WILL YOU MISS HER ON THE SHOW?

UPDATE – Peggy has confirmed her departure. She claims she decided to leave the show on her own after doing some “soul searching”. Below is her statement via her facebook page -

“Hello Everyone, Many of you have been asking about season 7 and if I am returning. After months of negotiation and soul searching, I have declined their offer to return to the show. 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. I loved being a part of the Bravo family and do look forward to any new endeavors this may bring. I already have several opportunities to host upcoming TV shows that will empower woman, as well as my husband and I are about to launch our own wine. Who knows, perhaps if many of you want to continue to follow me and my family’s lives, then a new show can be created! One of “real” family fun, natural life drama, holistic living, life lessons and experiences. thank you all so much for your love and support!”

After a couple of boob jobs, Real Housewives of Orange County‘s self-proclaimed hottest housewife, Tamra Barney is now complaining that her boobs are too big! Um… seriously? This is news?

Tamra, 43, gave an exclusive interview to Star, in which she told the mag she is getting her implants removed! “Big boobs make you look so much heavier when you’re a small girl. I’m 112 lbs., and I have these D boobs popping out. It’s a stripper look, and I don’t want that!”

Wait – did I read that correctly? She no longer wants the stripper look? Well, any possible way Tamra is wiling to class it up, I support! Although, I think she’s going to have to change her behavior as well…

“I’ve already had one reduction,” Tamra continues. “I’m actually planning on having my implants removed.” Of course this is all ex? estranged? husband, Simon Barney’s fault, because he wanted her to have the implants! “His comment was: ‘I don’t want mosquito bites!’ “ she reveals.

Tamra concedes that her new boyfriend – love of her life and hot boy-toy, Eddie Judge – also likes her large bust, but he supports her decision! “I’m at the time in my life where I really don’t care what a man thinks,” Tamra clarifies. “I’m doing this for myself. And ultimately, what makes me happy makes Eddie happy too!”

Well, ummm… best of luck to Tamra and her newest surgical procedure. Here’s guessing we’ll be following the storyline in the upcoming season of RHOC!

Thoughts on Tamra’s intentions to make herself look a little more classy? Do you care about Tamra’s cup size?

Another day, another bench arrest warrant issued for Gretchen Rossi.

For the second time in two years, a judge has ordered a bench warrant for the arrest of the Real Housewives of Orange County star. And of course, it all has to do with her ex Jay Photoglou.

Gretchen and Jay continue to be locked in a nasty legal battle over claims of libel, defamation, and slander. After Gretchen failed to make a court appearance on Thursday (she was busy hosting a promotional event in Las Vegas), a judge issued the warrant for her arrest and set her bail at $2,500, reports RadarOnline.

Luckily for Gretchen, the judge gave her until September 15 to show up to court or risk being arrested. It’s likely this latest missed court appearance has to do with the $40,000 Gretchen was ordered to fork over to Jay for his legal fees earlier this year. No word yet on whether or not Gretchen has made that payment.

Perhaps viewers will get to see Gretchen’s legal drama play out on TV as filming has officially began on the 7th season of the RHOC!

We reported last week that old-heads veterans Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson had signed on, and today we can now report Peggy Tanous will also be returning. Peggy confirmed the news via her twitter page after a fan asked her if she was kicked off. She replied, “Of course not. Start filming next week!!! Thanks for your support!”

On Tuesday, Tamra then tweeted, “First day of filming tomorrow….Let the games begin.” None of the other housewives have confirmed their return, but with Peggy’s return, it’s likely Alexis Bellino might also be returning.

And finally, despite all the controversy, it appears Vicki and her beau Brooks Ayers are still going strong. In fact Vicki tweeted days ago that she had just left Brook’s home state of Mississippi. “Heading home to southern California after having a great weekend in MS. and TN. I love my “Southern people”.” tweeted Vicki.

Brooks then tweeted to Vicki: “We both are very happy and feel like we have finally got it “right”.. Have a great day!” This led some to speculate whether the couple might have gotten engaged or tied the knot, which Vicki denied. She tweeted, “Nope.. No marriage.. Just really happy!”

Brooks also assured a fan that all is well between the two. “We have an amazing relationship! I can assure you that what we have,most people want. We both are glad that we didn’t settle!” he wrote. Safe to assume Vicki’s new romance will be part of her storyline for the new season. Below is a recent photo of the two together.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?

UPDATE – Gretchen’s publicist released the following statement which pretty much confirms what was originally reported -

“After Photoglou’s previous attorney’s dropped him last month, Jay and his new attorney set a conference date intentionally on a day they knew Gretchen would be out of town on an appearance. Gretchen’s attorneys appeared on her behalf and the judge rescheduled the conference. A bench warrant is a standard part of the paper work. It is not an active warrant and only becomes active if one of the parties fails to appear on the new date. “

Ready or not, the first ladies of Bravo are gearing up to return for an all new season! Vicki Gunvalson confirmed yesterday that the Real Housewives of Orange County season 7 will begin filming soon!

“It’s “Go Time” for season 7. Tamra and I are now locked in. Hoping to have our best season yet! Pray for us….. Woo hoo,” tweeted Vicki Sunday night.

As of the moment, none of the other housewives have yet to confirm their return though it’s safe to assume fan favorite Gretchen Rossi will be returning. Alexis Bellino’s return is however very questionable as her husband Jim Bellino has made it crystal clear he no longer wants to film, due to what he considers to be a negative portrayal by Bravo. Perhaps Alexis’ feud with newbie Peggy Tanous will be enough to keep her on.

As for what we can expect from the ladies, there seems to be never-ending drama when it comes to these women. Vicki’s drama with her new beau has been widely reported, and in fact Tamra Barney just tweeted hours ago that her estranged husband Simon Barney refuses to sign the divorce papers.

“What does it mean when your ex finds every stupid reason in the world to NOT sign the divorce papers…..so annoying!” wrote Tamra.

Meanwhile, Gretchen also tweeted that she spent part of the weekend visiting the kids of her deceased fiance Jeff Beitzel. Gretchen wrote, “Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I’m in Detroit visiting Jeff’s kids! They are such strong, smart kids and I admire them so much for everything they have endured at such a young age. Missing Jeff so much today as we all sat at dinner and reminisced about him.”

With filming on the RHOC slated to begin any day now, it’s likely the new season will debut very early next year on Bravo.

TELL US – YOU EXCITED ABOUT VICKI & TAMRA’S RETURN? DO YOU WANT ALEXIS TO RETURN? THOUGHTS ON TAMRA & GRETCHEN’S TWEETS?

Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is suing mad after In Touch Weekly magazine branded her as being broke and “bankrupt” on the cover of a recent issue (the cover is posted below). She’s not broke?

TMZ reports that inside the mag, the article read, “Bankrupt! Evicted! Foreclosed! Housewives Are Going Broke.” The article continued, “After selling off her home at a fraction of its cost to avoid foreclosure, Alexis Bellino still refuses to admit she and her husband … have money troubles.”

Well Alexis didn’t take too kindly to the cover story as she had her lawyer fire off a nasty cease and desist letter to the mag days ago, demanding In Touch retract its “patent, malicious, and libelous comments.”

The ‘sis and desis’ letter (hi Tamra!) claims Alexis is “in great financial health” and if In Touch doesn’t retract its comments, she plans to sue. TMZ adds that In Touch has yet to respond to the letter.

A bit odd that Alexis would threaten to sue when she did appear to have some financial issues last year. Her home with hubby Jim Bellino was indeed facing foreclosure until the bank decided to cancel the scheduled auction earlier this year.

And while they did not file a personal bankruptcy, Jim did file Chapter 11 bankruptcy for one of his businesses. But apparently all is well and there are no financial troubles. Must say these two are starting to remind me of another Bravo Housewives couple who shall remain nameless, from the way the husband treats his wife right down to the part about threatening to sue media outlets for reporting about their finances.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK ALEXIS IS REALLY BEHIND THIS OR JIM? DOES SHE HAVE A CASE?

Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi is opening up about her relationship with boyfriend Slade Smiley in a new interview!

Despite the very negative publicity surrounding her beau of over 2-years (rightfully so as Slade reportedly owes over $160,000 in back child support), it appears Gretchen is dickmatized still standing by her man and even thinking about having kids with him in the future.

First Gretchen, 33, praises Slade for being a good business partner and helping her with her handbag line. “I’m just so blessed to have such a great partner. He helps me with everything. He supports me with everything, so that makes a big difference,” said Gretchen to HollyScoop.

Gretch however admits like any other long-term relationship, the two do have their ups and downs. “We have our fights,” she admits. “We have our moments as we’ve all seen on TV, but overall we just love each other and we feel really blessed.”

Though the couple is yet to be engaged, despite the rumors, Gretchen reveals she still has babies on the brain… with Slade… who owes over 160K in child support. “I’m very excited to have kids one day with him. I’m looking forward to all that,” she said though adding “I’m in no hurry.”

“I’m loving life right now. I’m in a great place. I’m building my companies and my career. I’m loving every second of it,” added Gretch.

Meanwhile Bravo announced last week that it has officially renewed the Real Housewives of OC for a seventh season. No word yet on which cast members will be returning or getting the axe.

And finally Vicki Gunvalson gave a new interview during which she talked about love and her comments has us wondering if she might have ended things with her boyfriend Brooks Ayers, who was exposed as being a dead beat dad.

When asked what advice she would give to people who look up to her, Vicki answered “I believe in love, um, I’m all about love. But I believe that you have to be smart in love. If your gut tells you something, listen to your gut…”

Vicki also gave financial advice to women in regards to living the “Housewives” lifestyle. “I do believe that a lot of these girls feel entitled to their men taking care of them or feel entitled to a privileged lifestyle. And my voice to them is, “stop it!” Take control … know what’s going on in your home,” said Vicki. “I mean prior to Tamara (Barney) getting divorced, she didn’t know what Simon (Barney) made. She never had her name on an account … she was never entitled to write a check out of their joint check book. That’s wrong and she got hurt because of that,” she added.

And below is a new bikini photo of Vicki which she posted on her facebook over the weekend!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON VICKI’S COMMENTS, & GRETCHEN WANTING TO HAVE KIDS WITH SLADE? NOT SMART OR STUPID?

Months after the sixth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County finished airing on Bravo, Alexis Bellino is speaking out on the difficulties of doing the hit show.

In a new interview with the Miami Herald, Alexis, who experienced some financial difficulties on the show and is well aware of the “Jesus Barbie’’ nickname given to her by fans because of her strong faith, reveals that being on the show can be very stressful.

“It’s definitely stressful being on [ Housewives],’’ admits Alexis, 34. “You go through your life in front of the entire nation. If you have one bad episode, everyone’s mad at you.’’

Alexis acknowledges she receives a lot of that criticism from the web. “There is a lot of bad blogging out there,’’ she says, adding: “Every person who comes up to me in public is very positive and super kind.” Alexis adds that she has learned to stay away from the negativity. “My rule is: I stay off the Internet, I don’t Google myself. I don’t read what other people have to say about me.’’

She however adds that being on the show has made her tougher. “I used to be sick to my stomach all night long, just devastated,’’ she says. “But now I have a tougher skin. It takes a lot to upset me now. My family is happy, and that’s all that matters.’’

Alexis also reveals she continues to focus on her Alexis Couture clothing line. In the meantime, she is uncertain about a return to the RHOC for a 7th season as Bravo has yet to make any official announcements. Filming on the new season will however start soon as it typically starts towards the end of summer so we will find out any day now who will be returning and who will not. My guess is Alexis will likely get the axe unless her husband Jim Bellino changes his mind about filming. Jim decided early on during the filming of the 6th season that he no longer wanted to appear on the show.

And finally, Alexis posted some new photos on her personal facebook page including a bikini photo from the 4th of July weekend, another photo of herself sporting a barely there bikini from this past weekend in Miami plus a pic of her and Jim at the Del Mar Races. All those photos are below!
