Peggy Tanous

Did you grab your box of tissue? Prepared to shed a tear over the last episode of a season that has given you so much? Think about it…the bathtub porn, the bull-riding, the fashion shows (plural!), and the heartache. I am almost sad to see it all come to end…almost. The finale does not disappoint with all the Real Housewives of the OC (past and present!) coming together (and kicking some ass) at Vicki’s annual fall party.

“I realized Donn didn’t love me the way it takes to stay married…after I filed, I realized that.” As Vicki is getting ready for her party, she can’t stop the waterworks. Her poor make-up artist is applying Preparation H to her puffy eyes, while we learn that Vicki has filed for divorce and hasn’t spoken to Donn in over a week. He won’t return any of her calls or e-mails. From her previous statement, it almost sounds like she filed for divorce to get Donn’s attention and expected him to beg her not to leave him. I can’t blame ol’ Donn for not speaking to Vicki–he’s probably hurt and angry she did this while filming so it would be on the show!

Tamra and Eddie are back at the scene of the softcore porn, and shockingly there’s wine involved. Tamra is “shaking” because she’s nervous about seeing Jeana. If I didn’t know any better, I’d assume she was already planning a confrontation that could potentially ruin her biffle Vicki’s shindig. No, Tamra would never do anything like that, would she?

OC Housewives

The sixth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County comes to an end tonight with what the Bravo network is promising will be a very dramatic finale.

And it should be as Vicki will file for divorce though in a very recent interview, she implied she would be open to a reconciliation with Donn. Also o`n the finale tonight titled “Girl Fight,” the season concludes with a bang as we finally get to see the altercation between Jeana and Tamra that Bravo has been teasing us with for months. Vicki comes home from her recent stint in the hospital, but feels well enough to host her annual fall party. At the party, Tamra doesn’t take kindly to what she believes is Jeana bad-mouthing her around Orange County, and all hell breaks loose. Watch a sneak peek below! The episode airs at 10/9c.

Watch What Happens Live Vicki was the scheduled guest but it seems her appearance had to be rescheduled. Replacing Vicki will be Peggy Tanous and hockey player Sean Avery.

In other OC news, it’s no secret that (much like the ladies on the majority of the franchises), the OC Housewives are not the best of friends. These woman do cliques and cattiness better than most high school mean girls. Vicki Gunvalson is no stranger to the drama, especially this season, but could she be tiring of all the back-stabbing?

In a recent interview with E.Online, Vicki opens up about her future plans and her young co-stars. As for what’s next for Vicki, she has penned a book (because that’s what Housewives do when they don’t fancy themselves pops stars) entitled More Than a Housewife, and envisions herself on her own “Clean House” type show, helping women with clutter and hoarding issues.

However, Vicki’s most telling statements are aimed at her younger Orange County cohorts, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino. Vicki states the obvious, “Alexis and Gretchen are thirty—we’ve got nothing in common. Nothing.” She elaborates, “[I want to] have more substance behind who I am. I think this show has really gone into an area that—I don’t work out five hours a day, I don’t stand in front of a mirror, I don’t do all things that we’re [supposed to be doing].” Meow. If that’s not a dig (albeit a legitimate dig) at the two youngest, blondest housewives, I don’t know what is.

Apparently, the disconnect with the women makes filming difficult. “[T]hey don’t respect me and I don’t respect them, so it’s tough to film cohesively with that.”

Vicki also goes on the record with respect to Alexis’ eating disorder admission. She exclaims, “Well, obviously she doesn’t eat! It was obvious, she has no body fat…It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know the girl’s got an eating disorder. I mean, really. I mean, she has got the most perfect body in the world, but you have got to eat in order to sustain life. I never knew it, but you can look at her to say, there’s definitely some eating issues.” I mean, Vicki makes a valid point, I mean, even if she doesn’t say it in the most sensitive manner, I mean.

Vicki reveals that she and Alexis get into it on the season’s reunion. However, dear readers, we have one more episode to watch before we get to see that.

Bravo has rolled out the first clip of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion and it is filled with drama!

It’s a confrontations galore as the housewives hash things out with one another. At one point, Tamra Barney walks off the stage after getting into it with Slade Smiley who accuses her of being er let’s say ‘loose.’ “You are the lowest form of sh*t in the world,” says Tamra before storming off. Yes Slade was present at the reunion as he was the only guy invited to join the ladies on stage.

Vicki Gunvalson’s estranged husband Donn Gunvalson also appears on the reunion via a taped clip. In the video, Donn is none too happy with Vicki. “I don’t think the way this went down was treated with class or dignity,” says Donn.

The biggest showdown seems to be between Tamra and Gretchen Rossi. Tamra slams Gretchen, accusing her once again of cheating on her dying fiance Jeff Beitzel. “You were sleeping with another guy while your fiancé was dying,” she says to Gretchen.

Gretchen retorts, “No I wasn’t Tamra. Stop talking out your *ss about everybody’s lives.”

Also, Alexis and Peggy get into it over Jim (Peggy used to date Jim), Vicki gets into it with Alexis, while Jeana Keough makes an appearance.

The reunion will air in two parts with part 1 airing on June 12. The preview clip is below

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE OC REUNION PREVIEW?

Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is denying those pesky rumors that she’s had a lot of plastic surgery, while also admitting to the work she has had done.

In an interview with Star magazine, Alexis, 34, insists she’s not a complete fake. “People think I have had all this work done, but I — honest to God — have only had breast implants… Botox and my lips injected,” she tells Star.

Alexis’s plastic surgeon Dr. Michael W. Niccole also confirms that his client is telling the truth. “She consulted with four other plastic surgeons before she came to me,” the Newport Beach, Calif.-based doctor reveals . “We sat down several times before we did her surgery because I knew that when you get someone who is an A-type personality perfectionist, you have to be very cautious.”

Alexis adds that making others believe she hasn’t had more surgery hasn’t been easy. “It is fascinating to me that everybody says they’re so sure that I’ve had a nose job or cheek implants or whatever,” says Alexis. “People just like to talk, but I’m OK with it.”

Allrighty. Meanwhile, Alexis took to her Bravo blog this week to call out her costar/former BFF Peggy Tanous, who casually dated her husband Jim Bellino 15 years ago, (Alexis reportedly was not aware of this fact until much later) and her husband Micah Tanous for talking smack about her and Jim on the most recent episode. Pots Micah and Peggy decided to trash the Bellinos, criticizing them for living beyond their means. And as we all know now, the Tanouses are currently in foreclosure. In fact, in looking at the dates, the Tanouses were defaulting on their home loan the same time Bravo was filming the current season. In her blog, Alexis makes it clear that she is now done with Peggy. Below is an excerpt –

“Micah says he doesn’t understand why I would have an assistant. Micah would never understand why I have an assistant, because he is never be as busy as I am. Micah claims he hates it when:

“Everybody’s trying to be something they are not.”
“Everybody’s caught up.”
“Everybody’s trying to keep up with the Jones’. Live within your means.”

Umm wait, this sounds just like Micah… Micah is projecting all of those things onto other people, but in all actuality that is how he acts. Micah is preaching such an introspective message here. Jim and I have many good investments, and we had one bad investment, our home. We sold our home and are moving on. We also just purchased a new company, a franchise in all of southern California. I will be disclosing that soon, and it’s super exciting! Why my finances are such a topic of discussion is beyond me, but as you can see, Jim and I are doing fine financially. It is so unbelievable to me that Peggy and Micah are so harsh and mean to Jim and I. At this point, I have to just let it go. I honestly don’t have the time or energy to discuss every single horrible thing they say. I’m moving on, and I know the truth will be discovered…”

It is just me or does Alexis look exactly like Peggy in the pic above?

And finally, Simon Barney, soon to be ex-husband of Tamra Barney, posted two new photos on his facebook this week of him and his girlfriend including one with Jeana Keough. Those pics are below!

This season of the Real Housewives of Orange County is quickly coming to an end as the finale is set to air next week.

In the meantime, the 12th episode of the season airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. Titled “Fashion Victim,” Peggy orchestrates a surprise trip to Las Vegas with her husband. Also there to spin giddy in Sin City: Tamra and Eddie. Meanwhile, Gretchen corners Slade about the debt-related problems of their relationship. And a fashion show is held, but a medical emergency causes a no-show and mounting drama. A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests are Kara DioGuardi and Gretchen Rossi. Gretchen will also be giving a live performance of her new single.

Meanwhile, the reunion was filmed this week on Tuesday though we can’t help but wonder how interesting it will be, you know, since most of the issues from this season were basically the rehashing of issues from past seasons. Andy Cohen however promises it will be the best OC reunion to date! “JUST wrapped the OC Reunion. I think it was our best OC reunion in 6 seasons. Really dramatic, tense, powerful, and emotional,” he tweeted. Uh uh.

The ladies seemed exhausted with the filming which took over 11 hours. “Holy shit get me out of here!!!! No more reunion taping PLZ,” tweeted Tamra Barney. “Whoa long ass reunion show yesterday! Quite a crazy and emotional day! All us woman sure can fight!,” tweeted Gretchen the next day. As for Peggy Tanous, she took issue with Bravo inviting Slade Smiley and not her husband Micah. She tweeted, “Shootin reunion. Can you all believe they only invited Slade to film & would not even allow Micah to be here with me. What do you all think?”

Some photos from the reunion below as well as some new photos of Alexis Bellino as posted on her facebook page.

It seems while Peggy Tanous and her husband Micah Tanous were busy buying expensive Bentleys, boob jobs, watches, and diamonds on the Real Housewives of Orange county, one thing they weren’t doing was paying their mortgage. Yes, shocker! Not.

As we reported months ago, Peggy and Micah’s home was in foreclosure after they defaulted on their home loan. Well fast forward to today, and Peggy is now suing three different banks, BAC Home Loans Servicing, U.S. Bank National and PNC Mortgage, in an effort to save her home. Peggy is claiming the banks didn’t honor a loan modification agreement.

According to RadarOnline, Peggy and Micah owe $1.3 million on the home with multiple mortgages. After purchasing the home in 2006, Peggy, 41, and Micah made payments on time for 2 years. They however began to experience financial difficulties and the payments on two loans became irregular. They have one mortgage for $1 million, and a second for $312,540 according to records. The couple also quit paying their Orange County property taxes but have since negotiated a payment for that.

In the court documents, Peggy claims she made a deal to pay interests only for 10 years but was shocked in November when the banks still filed a foreclosure notice. “(Peggy) is determined to keep the property,” the lawsuit states. “It is her family’s home, and she does not want to lose the Property in a foreclosure sale.”

Radar adds the home was last assessed at $875,000 in 2009, way down from the $1,379,000 they paid for it back in 2006.

As mentioned above, Peggy and hubby Micah have been shown on the show spending money on jewelry, plastic surgery, and parties, aka non-necessities, at the same time their home loan was being defaulted on. In fact, Peggy brags in the opening credits of the show about owning a Bentley. Peggy’s home was scheduled to go up for auction on March 17 but that was ultimately canceled. But hey, who needs a home to sleep in when you own a shiny Bentley!

Court records show Peggy’s home had a default notice dated Nov. 16, 2010, with the amount in default at $190,713.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the OC housewives titled “It’s Not a Competition.” On the 10th episode of this season (yes, we’re already on episode 10!), Peggy and Alexis discuss their ever-fraying relationship, but their conversation only creates more tension. Meanwhile, Slade’s mother arrives and corners him about his job status; and Vicki and Peggy gather for some wine and whine.

The episode airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens Live – The lone guest tonight is Bethenny Frankel!

It was a very busy day for Bravo yesterday as the network not only announced new and returning shows, but also hosted a total of 3 different upfront parties in 3 different cities!

And of course the housewives came out to party alongside plenty of other Bravolebrities. Above is a photo of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast at the Los Angeles party. Also at the LA party was the entire cast of the Real Housewives of BH including Kim Richards.

Joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast at the Chicago party was none other than Bethenny Frankel, who tweeted that there was a clear division amongst the cast members but more on that below.

At the New York party were the Real Housewives of NJ and the Real Housewives of NYC. Casts of other Bravo shows such as Top Chef, Million Dollar Listing, Million Matchmaker & more were also in attendance. It is a photo overload below!

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Bravo officially announced the RHOA and the RHOBH will be returning for another season. Not exactly surprising as the first had the highest ratings in housewives history while the later has already began filming. The big surprise however was the early renewal of Bethenny Ever After as while the ratings are still good, it has declined over 20% from its debut season.

Not announced yesterday? The Real Housewives of DC which is reported to have been canceled. The only two housewives franchises missing from the Bravo parties? The RHODC and the RHMIA.
