Jeana Keough

oc_housewives_jeana_keough

One of the original Orange County “Housewives,” Jeana Keough is leaving the show to focus on work. Due to the chanllenges of the real estate bussiness, the Wisconsin native and former Playboy Playmate wants to focus her attention on short sales and escrow disbursements.

Tonight’s episode will highlight her exit from the show. Though she is off the show, Jeana plans to tune in every Thursday. In a recent interview, Jeana opens up on her departure, plans to return to TV, what she really thinks about Vicki, Gretchen & Slade’s relationship plus the possibility of a wedding.

These are excerpts from Jeana’s interview below:

Well, now that we’re on the topic. Explain a little more about why you decided to leave the show.

Work. My real estate just went down two-thirds because I wasn’t around the summer to do the open houses and do the things that make me successful. I mean, you can have 15 listings but if you’re not the one sitting on them on the weekend and telling the people the positive things about the houses and why they should buy this house instead of another house — it just … me not being there hurt my sales. The market changed horribly anyway. And me taking off four months in the height of the season was just really hard on me. I needed a summer to get my business back on track. I took a few other jobs. I’m doing, like, three spokesperson jobs. I needed to focus on my income. Loan modifications and short sales take an extraordinary amount of time over a normal sale. So I had to do four loan modifications on four properties. Plus helping all my clients do their short sales. I really didn’t have time to do the show. I had to move Kara from Berkeley down to UCLA. I had to go college searching with Colton. The kids were at a point in their life where they wanted a break from it. They really enjoyed their break from it … but now they miss it.

Over the seasons, we see the ins and outs of your relationship with Vicki. You guys bicker occasionally, but you always seem to work things out. This season, we learn that you asked to borrow money from Vicki and she didn’t help you out. And it seems you sort of lost touch. Talk a little bit about the situation.

It was a small amount of money. It was a deadline for summer school and I didn’t get a check for a week. It was a small amount of money for a small amount of time. It meant nothing. I picked up the phone and called my next friend. It didn’t bother me at all. It just … I don’t know. It hurt my feelings just for a second. But I didn’t dwell on it. I don’t even know why she mentioned it. It was an insignificant thing. I’m not sure. It didn’t hurt my friendship with her. We just got busy. You see in the next few episodes, she traveled a lot this summer. She had to go to a whole bunch of different states for work. And she traveled with the show to a couple of different places. She wasn’t around. Normally, I went on vacations with her. If she was going to Mexico, we’d go. But I’m on a Mexican moratorium so I didn’t go this year.

What do you think of the Tamra-Gretchen feud?

I told Tamra many, many times: “It’s none of your business. One guy woke you up one night. Get over it. Say you’re sorry.” We actually did an appearance where she apologized on TV. She wanted to do it on TV so everyone would know. She did apologize. She wanted to move on. But, of course, the episode came out and it brought up bad feelings. Hopefully, it’s done now and we can move on.

What about Gretchen and Slade’s relationship? True love?

I have a feeling they will be the next wedding. They’re very, very close. And they’re so cute together. Gretchen’s a girlfriend kind of girl. She wants to be married and have kids so … I think they’re in it for the long haul.

slade-smileyThe Real Housewives of Orange County

Slade Smiley took some time out of his very busy schedule to share with us his thoughts on the Real Housewives of Orange County.  The blog, which has now been removed from Bravo’s website, was a no holds barrel in regards to Slade’s opinion on some of the OC ladies.

Slade, first appeared on Season One as the fiancé of original cast member Jo De La Rosa, he then briefly dated Lauri Waring, and is now dating Gretchen Rossi.

Some of the highlights from Slade’s rather long blog is below -

His Thoughts on Vicki Gunvalson – “For some reason, Gretchen seems to have a soft spot for Vicki [Gunvalson], which I do not share… But that’s what makes Gretchen such an amazing person. Vicki will probably continue to be the same rude, self-absorbed work-a-holic she has always been. It’s her superiority complex that gets the best of her.  Vicki has some real balls to say I am whoring Gretchen out. No one has felt the need to talk about all her secret little hotel rendezvous, I suggest you keep your comments to yourself.”

His Thoughts on Tamra Barney - “This girl cannot mind her own business.  Do you think Tamra ever once called to check in on G when Jeff was sick? Of course not! Does she care about all the BS being written because of her unwarranted comments? Nope. She knows exactly why it happened and she is actually involved with the tool bag who is behind it. What’s funny is she thinks none of us know what her and Simon are up to. News flash Tamra, we all know and it’s not going to be pretty for you when it all comes out. The world is on to your game honey and Karma is a b***h.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County

The Real Housewives of Orange County attended TV GUIDE Magazine’s Hot List Party at SLS Hotel on November 10, 2009 in Beverly Hills, California. Jeana Keough, who will be leaving the show after 2 more episodes, was not in attendance. Neither was Alexis Bellino, the newest housewife.

Also in attendance was Slade Smiley, honorable 6th housewife boyfriend of Gretchen Rossi. You can see more photos of the ladies below. Yikes at Tamra‘s hair, and Lynne‘s plastic surgeon should have his scalpel donated to some sort of plastic surgery hall of fame.

In other news, Vicki Gunvalson will be appearing on the Dr. Phil show on November 12th. No word yet on the reason for her appearance.

They’re back! The original housewives of bravo are returning for their 5th season tonight.

The Real Housewives of Orange County have pretty much been in the headlines for the past few months. Whether it be Gretchen Rossi’s leaked photos, Lynne Curtin’s eviction saga, or Vicki Gunvalson’s trashy bar behavior, It’s safe to say these six women will be keeping us entertained for weeks to come.

The DailyBeast caught up with the OC Housewives to discuss their new season, and changes in their lives.  Vicki claims the show has negatively affected her insurance business, leading her to almost not return for the 5th season. “I almost lost a very large client of mine—a $2 million client—because he Googled me and said he didn’t like what he was seeing on the TV show,” Gunvalson, 47, told The Daily Beast.

Bravo promises the upcoming season will address the financial woes of some of the ladies, including that of Jeana Keough, who’s divorce and a down real-estate market prompted her to quit the show to focus on work full-time. She will be leaving the show after 3 episodes. Jeana however reveals other reasons for leaving the show, “I just didn’t feel appreciated by the girls or the network,” she said.

Tamra Barney, 42, will be one of the housewives dealing with financial woes. Her home is currently listed as a short sale, and she has had to let both a nanny and a maid go to save cash. This season will also deal with Tamra doing a lot of arguing with her husband Simon Barney. “He did not want to come back this season, and I did,” she said. “He’s very private and conservative. We’re having a lot of financial problems, and he just didn’t want to expose that.”

Tonight’s episode will show Gretchen reflecting on the death of her deceased fiance, and confronting Tamra about the things Tamra said about her last season. It will also feature Vicki skydiving, and Lynn contemplating having a facelift.

They’re back! We posted a video preview of The Real Housewives of Orange County’s 5th season days ago. We are now bringing you their official season 5 photos!

It’s obvious to see some of the ladies have spent their summers with their plastic surgeons. Housewife Lynne Curtin is barely recognizable. Based on the bio information, it seems Jeana Keough will be leaving the season early, similar to what Lauri Waring did last season.

Below are the photos and a brief bio of what is to come this season of each housewife -

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 5 Gretchen RossiGretchen Rossi – In Season 5 Gretchen copes with the death of her finance Jeff, and learns how to move on both professionally and personally. Gretch’s social life heats up when she finds a surprising new love interest (who OC fans may or may not recognize … )

The Real Housewives of Orange County 5

The original housewives of Bravo are back! Bravo announced The Real Housewives of Orange County will be returning for their 5th season on Thursday, November 5 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Returning are Vicki Gunvalson, Jeana Keough, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Lynne Curtin, along with the newest housewife, Alexis Bellino.

The video preview below also shows us the ladies will definitely be bringing back the drama!

The shocking preview highlights the following about each housewife -

Tamra Barney – Struggles in her marriage to husband, Simon Barney, and even mentions the ‘D’ word – Divorce. She will also be dealing with financial problems as she attempts to sell her house, which is now up for short sale and might be foreclosed on soon.

Lynne Curtin – Will be shown getting a face lift, while dealing with financial difficulties with her husband. Her eviction was made very public in recent weeks.

Gretchen Rossi - Is shown struggling with losing deceased fiance Jeff Beitzel, though she had already moved on with new boyfriend Slade Smiley before this season’s filming started.  She is also shown confronting Tamra about the nasty things she said about her.

Vicki Gunvalson – Is shown attempting to mend her marriage after spending all of last season putting down her husband, and continued to do so by being photographed in public giving lap dances to random men, and baring her bottom in a public bar to get a tattoo.

Jeana Keough – Is shown having some difficulty with her real estate dealings.

Alexis Bellino – The newest housewife and a friend of Gretchen’s will be attempting to fit in with the other housewives.

Tell Us – Are You Excited For The New Season of The OC Housewives?

Alexis Bellino, Lynne Curtin, and Gretchen Rossi

 

The Real Housewives of Orange County are currently filming for their 5th season. RadarOnline was able to get some shots of the ladies spending some time in Florida.

We see Gretchen Rossi, Lynne Curtin, and newest housewife, Alexis Bellino enjoying their time in Fort Lauderdale.

I’m guessing this might be a preview of what is to come on the show. These three will be a close unit while 40 year old mean girl Tamra Barney and the always classy Vicki Gunvalson will continue to be miserable together. Jeana Keough, who has been confirmed to be returning to the show, will likely continue to be a neutral party as always.

More pics of the three below –

Alexis Bellino

Bravo is currently filming the 5th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County with a new housewife in tow. Alexis Bellino, 32, is the latest Bravo housewife. Alexis is described as being a friend of Gretchen Rossi.

Alexis who is from Newport Coast is described as a stay-at-home mother of three. There are conflicting stories on wether or not Alexis is replacing OC veteran, Jeana Keough. The OC Register is reporting Jeana will not be back, while other reports have stated Jeana will be returning.

The one thing we are certain of is that Alexis will be on the show. Alexis’s husband is Jim Bellino, 47. Jim is described as an entrepreneur who use to own a pool table business that was an $8 million-a-year-profit company.

In a new interview with the OC register, Alexis describes filming with the other women – “It has been amazing. I already knew Gretchen. Lynne (Curtin)’s a sweetheart. She doesn’t have a mean bone in body. Vicki (Gunvalson) and I joked and laughed and had a good time. But there’s drama anytime you get five women together.”

Unlike Kelly Bensimon of the NY Housewives, Alexis describes herself as an addict of the show and has seen every single episode.

This should make for an interesting new season. I love the fact that she just happens to be a friend of Gretchen. Alexis is obviously easy on the eyes as is Gretchen. So it might be safe to say Tamra Barney will spend the entire season on trying to “out” her on something, or accuse Alexis of trying to be like her.
