According to E! Online, Vicki, who filed for divorce from husband Donn Gunvalson just a little over a week ago, was hospitalized for internal bleeding, confirms an employee from her company, Coto Insurance & Financial Services.
Though the general consensus seems to be that the 47-year-old reality star’s condition is not that serious, Vicki will remain in the hospital for further tests so that doctors can determine the source of the bleed.
Vicki’s cast-mate Jeana Keough posted the following on her facebook page yesterday – “Vicki Gunvalson rushed to the hospital, she is fine resting comfortably with her beautiful daughter by her side. Prayers always help but I am assured she is spending the night and it’s not serious, how do you say whoo hoo!”
In fact according to RadarOnline and E! News, Jeana was the one who provoked the physical altercation with Tamra by trying to push her into a pool unsuccessfully.
RadarOnline reports that Tamra was furious with certain comments Jeana had been making about her in the press, comments which she felt were inaccurate, so she tried to hand Jeana a cease and desist letter from her lawyer at a wrap party for the Bravo show. The party took place at castmate’s Vicki Gunvalson’s house according to E! News.
That didn’t go so well according to Radar. “Jeana said to Tamra, ‘Youre’ a b—- and I’m gonna throw you’re a– in the pool,’” a witness tells Radar. “Then she pushed Tamra, as if she was trying to throw her in the pool.”
This then led to Tamra throwing a glass of wine in Jeana’s face, and as Tamra walked away, Jeana attempted to throw her wine at Tamra, but the drink ended up missing her, instead soaking another woman’s white dress. That woman reportedly grabbed Jeana and pushed her up against a wall.
It wasn’t over yet folks as Tamra then encountered Jeana and a male friend in the driveway as she tried to leave the party. Jeana’s friend then took a wine glass and threw it at Tamra’s feet, with glass shattering and flying everywhere.
Bravo’s cameras were reportedly on hand to film the event.
In other news, the AbsurdToSublime site is reporting that Gretchen Rossi is now engaged. According to the site, her boyfriend of a year and a half, Slade Smiley, proposed to her Saturday night during the filming of the Season 6 Real Housewives of Orange County Finale.
If true, no official announcement yet from either party, though Gretchen did post a photo of she and Slade with their parents over the weekend. We’re guessing the announcement will likely come from a major media outlet like Bethenny Frankel did with PEOPLE magazine when she got engaged. The site also reports that Slade recently had his vasectomy reversed.
Below is what Jeana’s daughter, Kara Keough, posted on her twitter page Saturday night -
@TamraBarney to hear you threw a drink in @jeanakeough’s face makes me sick- she called me in tears- can’t believe I considered you a friend
Thanks for the support, everyone. I may be biased for my own mommy, but I’m on #TeamJeana all the way. Assault is never the answer.
As to what might have gotten Tamra so peeved, it all has to do with the comments Jeana made in her interview to Radar. Jeana stated she has been going on double dates with Tamra’s estranged husband Simon Barney and his new girlfriend. The interview then took a quick turn for the worse as Jeana, who might or might not be a professional enabler, declared that Simon has never hit Tamra, and stated that if there was any domestic violence in the relationship, Tamra was likely the offending party because she liked to playfully “whack” people.
Jeana also referred to Tamra as a “very dramatic” person and insinuated she made up the domestic voilence claims against Simon to get custody of their kids. Here’s what Tamra posted on her twitter page last night -
“Think twice jeana keough when you try to throw me in a pool cuz you talk smack. MIND YOUR OWN BUISNESS!”
Oddly enough, most of Jeana’s comments about Tamra have been removed from the RadarOnline article, though you can still see most of the comments here on our site. According to Realitywives.net, Tamra made the following posts on her facebook before deleting them -
“JEANA KEOUGH THINKS SHE KNOWS SO MUCH ABOUT MY LIFE? POOR POOR SICK WOMAN….LEAVE ME ALONE FOR THE LAST TIME! THEN SHE TRIES TO THROW ME IN A POOL CUZ I SERVED HER WITH A C&D LETTER FROM MY ATTORNEY….
STAY TUNED I HAVE THE TEXT AND EMAILS THAT JEANA SENT ME AFTER I CONFRONTED HER ABOUT HER INTERVIEW!”
Here’s what some other OC current/former cast members had to say about the incident -
Shane Keough: @Tamrabarney you are low class trash. How dare you threaten my mother when you are wrong to begin with.If you want privacy then leave OC.
Gretchen Rossi: @karakeough is your mom ok? I texted her but didn’t hear back… @karakeough was hoping to see u today! Glad mom is ok! Xoxo
Quinn Fry: OMG!!!!!!! You will never believe what happened today while were filming! Wine tossed, Tamra pissed me off!
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS? WHO’S SIDE ARE YOU ON?
In the interview with RadarOnline, Jeana, who quit the Bravo show midway through last season, shares that she goes on double dates with Tamra’s estranged husband Simon Barney, whom she has built a special friendship with.
“I see Simon. We’ve had dinner like once a week for the last two weeks,” Jeana told Radar adding that she ran into Simon shortly after his release for domestic violence against Tamra (all charges have since been dropped).
Jeana however makes it clear their dinners are double dates. “[He's] with this new girl, he’s dating. He’s very happy, very happy,” she said. “She’s a banker, in her 30s, she’s intelligent and cute and doesn’t wear any makeup and dresses low key. She’s a business girl.” Photos of Simon’s new girlfriend are below by the way.
The interview only got better or worse, depending on who you ask, as Jeana then decided to comment on Tamra’s accusations that Simon has been physically abusive to her for years. Jeana makes it very clear that she is solely on Team Simon and does not believe Tamra’s accusations.
“No, not [for] a second. I’ve only seen her whack him. I’ve never ever seen him do anything but try to protect her and say ‘you’ve had enough to drink’ or ‘your dress is a little short.’ But no. He’s a great guy.”
Jeana went on to describe Tamra as “very dramatic” before insinuating that Tamra is taking advantage of the system by making up the domestic violence claims in order to get sole custody of her kids with Simon.
“Her point was she was trying to prove to women that you don’t have to take abuse and while we all work for that — and I work for several organizations that do the same — it’s also abuse of the system,” said Jeana. “It’s a classic form of child custody battles to get more money, it’s to act like there’s something wrong and then they end up paying more money to settle with you and you get more time, it’s not worth it.”
Jeana added, “You know that girl, you’ve seen her on TV. You know her mouth. If that guy [Simon] would have ever hit her or touched her, if he looked crossed-eyed at her she was screaming at him at the top of her lungs. I’ve had her turn on me like a rattlesnake for nothing. So there is no way she would take abuse from anyone. She stands up for herself even when she’s not correct…”
Whoa at Jeana’s comments. Would like to hear your thoughts on what she said. And finally Simon posted photos of his younger stunning new girlfriend on Facebook recently. While some of his facebook friends wondered if she was the babysitter or his daughter, Simon made it clear that is not the case. “Not the Babysitter, not my kid. She is old enough to be their mother. But doesn’t look like it. She is my beautiful Girlfriend,” he posted. Pictures of her below -

“Rumor has it that I will not be returning for “season 6″ That rumor is true! Further rumor has it we will be back somewhere else on our own show! Hmmmm! “Watch what happens” Life is so unpredictable! Enjoy!” wrote Lynne on her facebook page on Friday.
And as for Lynne getting her own reality show, there has been no news or rumblings about any show. Perhaps Lynne is simply trying to ‘secret’ one into existence.
In other OC news, it is still unclear whether or not former cast member Jeana Keough will be returning this season, as there are conflicting reportings. The OC Register did however report today that during an event out, Bravo cameras were filming both Jeana and Gretchen Rossi. Guess we will just have to wait and see if Jeana is indeed returning.
What is certain is that Jeana is a part of Bravo’s new show – “Thintervention with Jackie Warner,” set to premiere 10 p.m. September 6.
Jeana will be one of eight clients who participate in an intense “thintervention” with Jackie Warner, a well-known fitness trainer who had a previous show on Bravo called Work Out.
According to a press release by Bravo, Jackie will “kick butt and inspire drastic lifestyle changes for her overweight clients who are struggling to lose weight and get healthy for good,” according to the press release for “Thintervention.”
TELL US – ARE YOU SAD TO SEE LYNNE LEAVE THE SHOW? DO YOU WANT JEANA BACK ON?
UPDATE – Lynne posted the following on her facebook: “I am broken hearted! I was so let down the way this came about! We were the last to know! I guess Bravo has to do what they have to do! I thought we had a great relationship! I guess I was wrong! Its funny how fast offers came to us from other places! Thats how we found out we were not returning! Funny how life can be!
Thank you! We tried to be honest about our lives! I thought thats what reality tv is supposed to be! I would like our new show to be totally honest! No retakes or do overs. You will see it exactly the way it really happens! Someone thinks alot of people will tune in! That makes me feel better about things! Its important to keep a positive vibe in life no matter what is going on!”
In the preview clip below, the ladies are asked to play truth of dare, during which Gretchenis dared to kiss Tamera, and they do. The picture of that is below as well, guess hell has frozen over.
So what can we expect from the two part reunion shows? It will update us on the pending divorce of Tamra and Simon Barney. Tamra will boldly address the situation with raw honesty and emotion. Lynne will answer questions regarding the challenges she has faced with her teenage daughters throughout the season. The men also make an appearance and Slade uses the opportunity to give Vicki a piece of his mind. The two go at it in a verbal battle that has been brewing for years.

According to the OCRegister, Jeana’s 7-bedroom-9-bath Coto de Caza home has been saved from foreclosure due to a loan modification. Jeana wrote -
“I am happy to report the system works! There is no foreclosure on my home anymore. After I was denied back in January, after working with Wamu/Chase for 6 months, they said I didn’t fit the program, I am a fighter so I called my friend Jason Cougenhour at HUD, our illustrious Congressman, and our Governor’s office, and found out that 75% of the people in loan mod’s weren’t getting accepted. That incensed me. I talked and wrote, harassed, gave speeches, encouraged people to write email blasts, used all of my Le Tip connections and last Monday the government changed the specifications. I am happy to say Chase has stopped foreclosure, and made my payments affordable, my work has picked up, and I have stopped efforts to sell my home at a greatly reduced discount. I plan to live here until I am ready to sell. I have been helping so many people save there homes, it is a difficult and frustrating process that I really wasn’t focusing on sales. With the possible sale of my house at auction, and the crazy people coming out of the woodwork to buy my 4.5 million dollar house for 1.3, you find out who your friends are. I am blessed, I have my health, my amazing children.”
Her home value has reportedly dropped from $5.5 million to $3.9 million, and she faced foreclosure actions from lenders and the Coto homeowners’ association in recent weeks. It now seems all is well, those auctions have been canceled and the home came off the market on Monday.
Compared to the other Housewives franchises, it seems the OC ladies were hit the worst financially.
Usually, finale episodes of the Housewives franchise tend to be a somewhat boring send off, but that definitely was not the case with the Real Housewives of Orange County season finale.
We saw Tamra and her husband Simon Barney reach a blowing point in a fight, unlike any that has ever been on reality TV. If there were any viewers doubting the authenticity of this show, that blow-up should be evident enough that this is all too real. Below is a rather long recap and mostly my thoughts on the stars of the show.
Tamra and Simon – I have to start off with these two. Wow is an understatement. Simon’s behavior on last night’s episode was beyond controlling, it was down right creepy and emotionally abusive. Tamra is without saying one of my least favorite housewives, but watching last night’s show really made me feel very sympathetic towards her. This woman was very afraid of her husband. The way he kept trying to “make-up” with her when they got out of the limo was hard to watch. Add on his passive aggressive hostility, and this man is truly a piece of work. My question is has he always been this way? Because this Simon we’re seeing was not the same one Bravo showed us the past couple of seasons. He is truly awful. A while back, I heard a very nasty rumor about Simon and something he allegedly did to Tamra, I chose not to write about this because it is a very big accusation to throw out there, and not something I would want to put out there unless I was 100% certain. I will tell you something, watching him last night, I will say I believe this rumor. I’m not going to say what it is, but you readers are smart, and I know you can figure out the most awful thing a man can do to his wife, other than cheating.
Lynne and daughters – Just when you think Lynne couldn’t become a worse parent, she manages to prove us wrong. This woman is so out of it that she couldn’t even tell her own underage daughters were drunk. Any good parent would have been mortified and humiliated by the behavior of her daughters, but now our darling Lynne. She was more worried about how she looked. She really needs to snap out of it and come back to planet earth. I however felt some sympathy for Alexa yesterday when she mentioned being tired of everyone bringing up their eviction. Kids can be mean, and I’m sure going to school and having the entire world know your business has to be difficult for any teenager. Alexa is the reason why I’m a bit against the housewives putting their children on this show. It’s just not healthy to have the whole world know every intimate detail about them. From what I read recently, Alexa has dropped out of school and is now being home schooled by Lynne. Yes you read that right. And how sweet and mature was it of Kara Keough to comfort Alexa last night?
Gretchen and Slade – Moving on to these two. Gretchen made a comment last night that really threw me off a bit. She called Slade “a great catch.” For some reason, I felt like that comment said a lot about her. Not saying that Slade is a loser, but to call him a “great” catch at this point and time is definitely a stretch. And then looking back on her past choices in men, mainly the loser known as Jay Photoglou, it all made sense. This woman must have some self esteem/self-worth issues, and perhaps some daddy issues. I’m guessing daddy didn’t hug her enough when growing up or something. She also strikes me as one of those women that doesn’t like to be single and therefore refuses to be single, thus dating anything anyone that comes her way. Before this season started, I suspected her relationship with Slade was fake, but after watching this season, it seems the relationship is all too real, which makes it all the more puzzling.
