They’re officially back! The Real Housewives of Orange County, aka the first blondes ladies of Bravo housewives, return tonight for their sixth season.

And judging from the previews, the drama is still alive and well amongst some of the cast members. In fact, Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney pickup their feud from seasons past tonight when they go at it during a get together after Gretchen refers to Tamra as an “evil bitch.”

Meanwhile, it seems new “housewife” Fernanda Rocha, 34, might be getting the Jennifer Gilbert treatment this season. Who is Jennifer Gilbert you ask? Well, Jennifer was cast to be a housewife on the Real Housewives of NYC last season, only to get the shaft during the season, by being demoted to an extra. Fernanda, who is openly bisexual, is noticeably absent from the official cast photo above, though she does appear in another one.

And when Vicky Gunvalson was asked about Fernanda, this is what Vicky had to say -  “ [Fernanda]‘s not really one of the Housewives. She’s somebody that comes in and socializes with us, but I don’t really know how we’re labeling Fernanda this year. We’ve haven’t really been told. I know her very little still. I don’t work out with her. I don’t socialize with her. She seems like a sweet girl.”

And finally, Alexis Bellino revealed in a recent interview with the E! network that her husband Jim Bellino quit the show. Reason? Jim apparently felt Bravo gave him a “jerk” edit last season. “He’s pretty much against the show,” Alexis revealed. “All they want to do is rip him apart.”

Watch What Happens Live – OC Housewives Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson will be joining Andy Cohen in the Bravo clubhouse tonight.

The Real Housewives of Orange Country premieres at 10 p.m. (EST) on Bravo. Below is a preview clip -

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE OC HOUSEWIVES PREVIEW & PREMIERE?

While we’re days away from the Real Housewives of OC season 6 premiere, Gretchen Rossi is dishing on what we can expect this season.

“Every year I’m like there’s not going to be any drama and then of course there is tons of drama. First episode, me and Tamara are already boxing each other so you can’t put five flamboyant women in a room, strong confident women, and not expect some drama and catfights,” said Gretchen to the HollywoodLife.

Gretchen also mentions that she and boyfriend Slade Smiley will be working through their own set of problems throughout the season. When asked if marriage is still on the table for the two, she coyly responded, “Yes, and you’re going to have to watch and see what happens!” They two are rumored to be engaged.

Gretchen goes on to sing the praises of the two new housewives on the show, Peggy Tanous and Fernanda Rocha. “I love Peggy this season, she seems like a really cool, down to earth girl. She seems to fit in with the group well and Fernanda, the Brazilian lesbian as I like to call her, she spices it up a little, she stirs the pot a little, but she’s really fun,” revealed Gretchen.

Meanwhile, Peggy appeared on E! News yesterday during which she gave the show a tour of her house. And yes, it was the same exact house that the she and her hubby recently defaulted on.

Peggy revealed during the interview that she knew Alexis Bellino before doing the show and that Alexis wasn’t happy about her decision to join the cast. The reason? Peggy stated that Alexis told her the show “was her own thing.” Safe to say there will be some friction between Alexis and Peggy on the show this season.

The entire cast also appeared on the Today Show today for an interview, during which Alexis admitted she did not want Peggy on the show, however citing a different reason than what Peggy stated. According to Alexis, she and Peggy have been friends for 4 years, and she simply didn’t want Peggy to do the show for Peggy’s own good and to protect their friendship. Alexis added that the show tends to cause friction between people. A photo of the entire cast from their Today Show interview below.

Ryan Vieth, son of Tamra Barney has been slapped with a restraining order and ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend.

According to TMZ, Ryan, who also stars on the Real Housewives of Orange County, used to date Daniella Kelley (pictured below) — his mom’s stylist — but new court documents now require him to stay at least 100 yards away from her and her dog.

Sources close to Daniella tell TMZ that Ryan began harassing her after she broke up with him last year. Ryan allegedly began showing up to her house randomly and even posted racy photos of her on TheDirty website, which have now been removed.

Ryan’s lawyer however makes it clear to TMZ that “He broke up with HER,” adding that the TRO also states Daniella can’t contact Ryan or his family. Both parties agreed to extend the order until August of 2011.

Tamra is now defending her son in a statement to RadarOnline. “It’s heart breaking that this troubled girl who we all cared about and let into our lives is out for her 15 minutes,” Tamra told Radar. “They broke up months ago and they were BOTH ordered to stay away from each other.”

Tamra also adds that Daniella has not been abiding by the restraining order. “She continues to contact him any way she can,” Tamra revealed. “Our whole family has blocked her from communication and now she is using the media to get attention. I really hope that she can move on and get the help she needs.”

In other OC news, Tamra alongside cast mates Alexis Bellino and new housewife Peggy Tanous appeared on the Lopez Tonight show yesterday. Below is a video clip of their appearance.

The new season of the OC Housewives premieres March 6 on Bravo. A picture of Daniella Kelley is below.

While the sixth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County has yet to air, one of the new housewives, Peggy Tanous, is already making headlines for the wrong reasons.

According to the OC Register, Peggy recently defaulted on her home, pictured below.

The home, which was purchased in 2006 for $1,379,000, has a default notice dated Nov. 16, 2010, with records showing the amount in default at $190,713. The loan was for $1 million.

Peggy, a 41-year-old former bikini model and stay-at-home mom, is married to Micah Tanous, who is described as an Internet marketing entrepreneur. Oddly enough, the couple is friends with Jim and Alexis Bellino, who are also currently facing some home loan troubles of their own.

If you recall, the Bellinos also defaulted on their home loan twice last year which led to a foreclosure and some auction dates which Jim and his lawyer were able to get postponed.

The latest auction date, which was set for Feb. 10, did not take place as lender JPMorgan Chase simply canceled the auction and the foreclosure proceedings. Michael York, a lawyer for the Bellinos reveals they were able to come to a deal with Chase.

As for what happens next, the 6-bedroom house is still being offered as a short sale, or for less than what is owed on the loan, with a asking price of $3,395,000.  The listing details show that the Bellinos have put over $6 million into the home.

And despite the fact that his clients defaulted on a home loan twice and were in foreclosure, York denies Alexis and Jim are having any financial problems in the statement below given to the OC Register.

“Some media reports have speculated that Mr. and Mrs. Bellino are having financial problems, which have resulted in issues between them and Chase. The speculation is inaccurate. Mr. and Mrs. Bellino do not have and have never had financial problems, and the issues between them and Chase are due to good business decisions that Mr. and Mrs. Bellino have made, not financial problems.”

Right… The Real Housewives of OC – Like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but without all the money.

And the other new housewife, seated on the far right, is Peggy Tanous, a 41-year old former model and now stay-at-home mom. “People call me ‘Feisty Peggy’ and I can definitely be feisty! I’m an Aries [with a] very strong personality. Friends say I’m the life of the party,” Peggy tells UsWeekly, also revealing she joined the cast at the urging of fellow housewife Alexis Bellino.

Joining Peggy, Fernanda, and Alexis this season will be Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney, and Vicki Gunvalson. The season trailer is below, while cast photos and what to expect from each of the housewives on season 6 is also below.

Weeks after originally filing bankruptcy, RadarOnline is now reporting that Simon Barney’s bid has been rejected.

If you recall, the Real Housewives of Orange County star and estranged husband of Tamra Barney, filed bankruptcy back in December 2010. He petitioned for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, citing the nature of his debts as “primarily consumer debts incurred by an individual primarily for a personal, family, or household purpose.”

Simon revealed he had between 1-49 creditors, with assets and liabilities between $50,001 to $100,000. According to Radar, the bulk of Simon’s debt was in the form of credit cards, with a claim from Chase Bank to the tune of $20,640.00.

Chapter 13 doesn’t dismiss one’s debts but rather allows individuals to undergo a financial reorganization supervised by the courts. As for the reason Simon’s bankruptcy was rejected, it was because Simon “failed to file schedules, statements and/or plan for the bankruptcy.”

In other news, OC housewife Alexis Bellino recently celebrated her 34th birthday. Her pal and costar Gretchen Rossi helped throw her a small birthday bash and according to Alexis’ facebook, her husband Jim Bellino dropped by to surprise her.

Photos from Alexis’ birthday outing below, and the 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County returns March 6 on Bravo. Vicki Gunvalson tweeted a few days ago, “Is back in Orange County!!! Are you excited when we return in March?! Make sure you have your kleenex out!”

We’re guessing this is good news for Alexis Bellino and husband Jim Bellino.

The OC Register is now reporting the foreclosure auction scheduled for Monday for the Real Housewives of Orange County stars has been postponed yet again. The new auction date? Feb. 10.

Though the Register adds that there’s a good chance the auction will not take place at all as Jim managed to find a technical loophole file bankruptcy for his company Global Marine Inc. a few weeks ago. The company just manages to hold the title to his house.

The 6,400-square foot, 6-bedroom house is currently listed for sale at $3,395,000, a far cry from the $4.56 million they paid in August 2007. The debt on the home is reportedly $4.7 million. You can see pictures of the home here. The Bellinos defaulted on the home loan twice last year, though they now claim they are still negotiating with the bank.

In other OC news, two weeks after a tentative ruling, an OC judge has officially ruled that Gretchen Rossi should pay her ex Jay Photoglou $40,799 in legal fees. This is in addition to the $22,000 she was also forced to pay him last May.

Gretchen had tried to sue Jay for defamation but is now just suing for assault, battery, stalking and other alleged offenses. Jay had asked for $85,000 in attorney fees, but the judge only awarded him half because a good portion of the lawsuit against him is still ongoing.

Jay’s attorney is however calling this new ruling a win. “We just keep getting victories, and we look to get more of them if she makes the decision to keep going with this case,” his attorney, Bryan J. Freedman told E! News. “We’re pleased,” he continued. “They tried to challenge the amount, they were unsuccessful, and the judge made the right ruling. And I have no doubt she’ll appeal it, and we look forward to her losing that also and paying more attorney’s fees for yet another poor decision.”

Is Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi hoping for a spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel?

According to a new report by the Hollywoodnews.com, that answer is yes! Gretchen and boyfriend Slade Smiley, who are rumored to have gotten engaged on the show’s upcoming season, reportedly want a spin-off show to showcase their relationship.

Gretchen joins the likes of Kim Zolciak, who also wanted her own spin-off show following the news that she was pregnant for her NFL beau. But as of now, it seems Bravo is not moving forward with any plans for a Gretchen or Kim spin-off.

Moving right along to the Real Housewives of OC season 6. After Bravo aired a sneak peek of the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of NYC over a week ago, many fans were left wondering what the heck happened to the OC season? Well, fret not as it seems all is well in Bravoland and Bravo is still planning to air to the OC Housewives season 6, but in February and no longer January as tentatively announced last year.

A fan asked Tamra Barney when the show would be airing on her facebook page and Tamra replied today, “I don’t know yet… I hear next month.”

Gretchen also had a similar answer in a recent video interview she posted on her site about the upcoming season – “So we just wrapped season 6 and they’re saying it’s going to air like January/February so we should see how the end result is,” she said. We say February as Bravo typically releases the press photos for the housewives at least a month before their season airs.

So what can we expect from Gretchen on the new season? Well according to Gretchen, she is all about promoting her businesses this time around. “This season for me was all about my businesses, my handbag line that I just launched (the Gretchen Christine Collection) and then I have my make up line (Gretchen Christine Beaute). And it’s really kinda about that and a little bit about my own turmoil of dealing with do I want to be married or not?” said Gretchen.

Interesting, and finally Gretchen posted some holiday photos of she and Slade on her personal site. One of the photos included Slade’s rarely seen older son Gavin, who appeared on the 1st season of the OC Housewives. Alexis Bellino also posted some photos of herself wearing her New Year’s Eve dress on her facebook page. Those photos are below -
