Back home, Gretchen turns to Alexis for romantic advice; and Peggy opens up about a health problem during an interview for a documentary. A preview clip is below.
Watch What Happens Live - Will not be airing tonight. It seems Andy Cohen is on vacation.
In other OC news,Peggy Tanousis opening up about her battle with postpartum depression. In a new interview with E! Online, Peggy reveals it got so bad to the point that she actually contemplated suicide.
“I [felt] so lost and depressed and overwhelmed that I had a thought of going upstairs and grabbing the gun,” revealed Peggy. “There were days when I would wake up and I just didn’t want to get out of bed…Thank god there were never thoughts of me wanting to harm my children…That was never, ever the case for me, thank god! But it was more just harming myself or running away. Like I had thoughts, I’m going to get the car today and just drive off and never come back.”
Peggy, 41, adds that she was able to overcome the depression with the help of holistic supplements. “I’m in a much better place now,” she said, “and feel almost pretty much back to normal. I have some bad day,s but for the most part I feel pretty much back to normal…It’s an ongoing struggle.”
And finally, Alexis Bellinodid a photo shoot over the weekend and posted two photos on her facebook page. One included an unretouched close up of her face. Both pics are below.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON PEGGY’S INTERVIEW & TONIGHT’S ALL NEW EPISODE?
In a new interview with RadarOnline, theReal Housewives of Orange County star reveals she and Eddie, beau of over a year, are not only planning to marry soon, but have also discussed adopting a child together.
“We’ve talked about marriage and we want to get married,” gushed 42-year-old Free Bitch Tamra.“It’s an insane amount of love; I have never said term ‘soul mate’ before, but we are!” As for what Tamra loves about Eddie, 37, she reveals it’s the fact that he does not judge her. “I’m not the easiest person in the world and he gets me, nor does he judge. He simply says, ‘that’s my girl.’”
Tamra once again makes it clear that Eddie and her ex-husband Simon Barney, who filed for divorce in January of 2010 after 11 years of marriage, were never friends like he had claimed.
“He put that out there when Eddie and I started dating,” said Tamra of Simon, who also has a new girlfriend.“We had gone to holiday parties about two years ago where Simon and Eddie briefly met, but they never had a friendship and no numbers were exchanged.” Tamra states Simon and Eddie have only met about 3 time socially, adding “Simon has even admitted to me that he was sorry and at the time he was pissed off.”
Tamra goes on to reveal that she has slowly started to bring Eddie into the lives of her children – Ryan, Sidney, Spencer and Sophia. “Within the next year we’ll be married,” Tamra told Radar, adding that it’s all about timing and her kids. “If it weren’t for the kids, we’d be married right now… but we’re happy as can be; it’s happily ever after!”
Having more kids isn’t out of the picture either as Tamra says “Eddie is adopted and said he’d even like to adopt.” More pictures of Tamra and Eddie below.
In other Tamra news, following some backlash for her bathtub scene on the latest episode (she was naked in a bathtub and later joined by Eddie), she is now admitting she made a mistake and expressing regret over her actions. Excerpts from her Bravo blog below –
On The Bathtub Scene – “The one thing about me is I will always own my mistakes, which leads me to the bathtub scene. I knew the next day after filming it that I made a big mistake. It was me getting caught up int he moment, drinking wine, and forgetting the cameras were there. I have been dreading this episode for eight months. As a mother, this was not one of my smartest moments on TV. Even thought I do not allow my children to watch the show, it doesn’t mean their friends don’t. This was one of those moments that I had to sit my kids down and tell them that mommy made a mistake and did something on TV that was in bad taste. I have a great communication line with my kids and have taught them that everyone makes mistakes, and as long as you own up to your mistakes, you will learn from them.”
On Eddie Downing A Glass Of Wine Before Entering The Bathtub - “You finally got to see Eddie in more ways than your probably wanted too. He didn’t say much and was extremely nervous in front of the camera. The first night we filmed I looked over at him and he started to turn white and said, “I cant do this.” So that was the reason for the shot of tequila, it calmed his nerves. The bathtub scene was about five shots of tequila for him, and when he walked in the bathroom he was caught totally off guard. He looked at me and said, “You’re naked,” while there were about five people with cameras and audio looking on. It was uncomfortable for him, but he jumped right in.”

The third episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County aired last night with what felt like a night of TMIs. From Gretchen’s sex talk about Slade to the marital nightmare between the Bellinos, ending with the Tamra soft-core bathtub scene with Eddie. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!
The episode beings with mogul Gretchen, who is clearly still harboring some resentment over Alexis‘s princess comment, as she dons a tiara to open the door for Alexis. For someone who claims to be very busy, Gretchen sure seems to have a lot of time to waste shopping for tiaras, and getting princess license plates. Perhaps this is why she needed an assistant. Alexis regrets the day she ever uttered the word princess, and following a brief chat, the ladies head out to do some shopping while I attempt to make sense of Alexis’s maxi dress.

On the new episode titled “A New Lease On Life,” Alexis, Gretchen and Peggy get together for a day of shopping and socializing. The dinner conversation turns racy when the women share surprising sexual secrets. Alexis and her family head to San Diego for a family vacation; however, the trip turns out to be anything but relaxing for her.
Elsewhere, Gretchen continues to hound Slade during their trip to Palm Springs while Vicki is getting restless in Coto de Casa and wants to sell the house, though Donn is happy to stay put. Tamra wants to take steps to repair her friendship with Vicki and suggests a girls’ weekend in Cabo San Lucas.
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Alexis Bellino and Top Chef’s Carla Hall.
In other OC news, Alexis Bellino is revealing that she no longer considers Tamra Barney a true friend, after hearing Tamra’s comments on the latest episode. On last week’s show, Tamra compared Alexis’s husband Jim Bellino to her ex-husband Simon Barney, and then went on to predict Alexis’s marriage will not last. Below are excerpts from Alexis Bravo blog -
“This was so difficult for me to watch, because this is the first time it is brought to my attention that Tamra isn’t actually a friend. I was so shocked after this episode that I was speechless for probably an hour. I do not understand how someone can act like a friend, and be so friendly, do pilates with me, have a cocktail and talk about our friendship, and then say all those mean things about me right afterward. It’s completely beyond me. She compared her marriage to Simon to my marriage with Jim, which I thought was absurd. The only similarity is that Jim and Simon both like a more traditional marriage. We can see now that Tamra didn’t want that; however, I do still want that…
Furthermore, the fact that she would have the audacity to make a prediction about my marriage given that she is divorcing her husband is absolutely ridiculous… I mean, why the heck didn’t she just tell me she didn’t want to do pilates with me that night? It’s disgusting. Actually, I don’t know why I’m so shocked about this. She did the same thing to Vicki last year, acting as if Vicki was her friend to her face, she did the same thing to Gretchen two years ago, and now she is doing it to me. I see a common pattern developing.”
TELL US – DOES ALEXIS HAVE A RIGHT TO BE UPSET AT TAMRA’S COMMENTS? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
According to Bravo’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development aka Andy Cohen, the Real Housewives of Miami is the end of additional cities to the successful reality series.
When asked about which city he would look to next to find more housewives by OK! magazine, Andy replied, “I really feel like we’re done.” When further pressed on if Miami is the last stop on the Housewives spinoffs? Andy answered, “Yeah.”
And when it comes to other housewives getting their own Bravo spinoff shows a la Bethenny Frankel, Andy reveals that is very unlikely. “I think they’re all good where they are,” he stated.
This comes as no surprise following the lackluster ratings and reviews of the Miami franchise. The show has averaged a dismal 1.18 million viewers over the first 3 episodes.
While ending the addition of new franchises might be best, we are a little disappointed we will never get to see a Real Housewives of Dallas. That would have been all kinds of awesomeness no?
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ANDY’S COMMENTS? ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THIS DECISION? WHAT HOUSEWIVES FRANCHISE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE?
The second episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County aired last night, and unlike the season premiere last week, last night was more on the somber side, but still good nonetheless. After all, we did get to meet new gun-toting housewife Peggy Tanous, who is anything but boring.
The episode began with a vomit inducing home scene between Gretchen and her deadbeat boyfriend/professional pipe layer Slade, as I still try to comprehend why Bravo would decide to open the show with this scene. A shirtless Slade goes to wake up Gretchen, who reminds us that she and Slade have been together for a year and a half. Vomit. But it gets better as Slade is now Gretchen’s employee who gets paid in the bedroom. Double vomit. Except Gretchen fails to mention the fact that Slade does get paid from being with her via a check from Bravo. Plus, can someone please inform Gretchen that the sexual jokes/innuendos are really not cute or funny, you know, considering she made the same jokes last season and again on WWHL last night. Though the more I think about it, the more I realize these two are perfect for one another as they are truly one of a kind.
It is now time for mogul Gretchen to have a meeting with her very own Sweetie aka her assistant Shawna. Shawna’s crime? Not having Gretchen’s back during Tamra’s get together last episode. It seems Gretchen is still peeved about the princess comment as she brings it up once again. At this point, Gretchen is without a doubt protesting too much. I mean we get it Gretchen! Between building your empire, humping Slade 24/7 and not taking care of him financially, you are very busy!

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.”
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Gretchen Rossi and boyfriend Slade Smiley. According to Andy Cohen, previously scheduled guest Sean Avery, of the New York Rangers, had to cancel.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PEGGY’S INTERVIEW, THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
During an interview with the E! network last week, OC newbie Peggy accused Alexis of sabotaging her efforts to join the cast. “Alexis didn’t really want me on the show,” said Peggy.
But it didn’t end there as Peggy added, “Alexis told me that [Housewives]was supposed to be ‘her thing.’ That made it really hard to film because I am a very strong believer in friendship.” Meow!
Alexis admits that she indeed did not want Peggy on the show but states that it was intended to protect their friendship. “I [had] this sick feeling [that] the show was going to eat us alive—tear our friendship apart,” she told E!. “I was trying to protect our friendship because to me our friendship is more important than the show. I just wanted our friendship to last.”
“Now that she’s saying I didn’t want to share the spotlight,” Alexis added. “I’m like, ‘Girl, there’s going to be six girls on the show—I’m going to have to share the spotlight. Why do I care if I share the spotlight?’ I don’t understand her whole philosophy, she’s changed a lot this season, to be honest with you.”
So can this friendship be salvaged? Alexis isn’t certain. “I just know that my friend that I had four years ago before the show wouldn’t talk about me behind my back, wouldn’t say the things she’s saying in interviews that I’m finding out about. And a couple things happen during the season where she kicks me while I’m down.”
Moving on to Tamra Barney, who revealed on Watch What Happens Live this week that she and Peggy got roofied during a recent outing in NYC.
Tamra and Peggy were at a bar alongside Vicki Gunvalson, and NYC housewife Ramona Singer, when a fan walked up and handed them both drinks that he had bought them. “He asked us if we would go to a club with him and we said no over and over again,” said Tamra. Eventually, Tamra and Peggy ended up passing out once they got back to their hotel.
Tamra now reveals to RadarOnline that she is hoping to catch the perpetrator. “My attorney is calling to see if there is a surveillance video,” Tamra revealed. “I know the guy that did it walked up with two drinks that were pink. He had sunglasses on and looked Middle Eastern. That’s all I remember,” she added.
Tamra adds that she has learned her lesson not to accept drinks from strangers, and hopes that someone got a picture of the guy since everyone was taking photos that night.
