While the new season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County is scheduled to begin filming next week, one familiar housewife that won’t be returning is original cast member, Jeana Keough. The decision to not have Jeana return seemed to be that of Bravo, and not Jeana.
Tamra Barney gave an interview earlier this week to Radaronline teasing that one of the original housewives would not be returning. While Tamra did not confirm who it was, TheDirty website did confirm yesterday that Jeana Keough is the one leaving.
Tamra also says there might be a new housewife or two added to the show. I can’t help but get the feeling the show will be a-okay as long as Gretchen is still on there, and Tamra continues her pathetic mission to “expose her.” I will however miss Jeana on the show, she was a likable character. No word yet on if Lynn will be returning, does the show really need her?
Tell Us: What do you think of Bravo’s decision not to bring Jeana back?
Every body’s favorite mean girl, Tamra Barney is at it again. The Real Housewives of OC’s star spoke to RadarOnline and had nothing nice to say about Gretchen Rossi.
Tamra slammed Gretchen’s claims of having a stalker and once again questions her moral character. “I was subpoenaed as a witness in a hearing involving…a restraining order she filed against her ex-boyfriend, Jay Photoglou,” Barney said. Gretchen had previously claimed Photoglou threatened the lives of she and her dogs, former Housewives cast member Slade Smiley, and vandalized her CA home.
Gretchen however failed to appear in court to address charges which led to them being dropped.
“I showed up in court only to find out the charges were dismissed after waiting 30 minutes. I find it strange for Gretchen, whom allegedly feared for her life because of this ‘stalker,’ wouldn’t even appear in Court for her hearing,” said Barney. “This speaks volumes about her character.” And what does your lame attempt at getting another woman “naked wasted” say about your character?
Tamra also goes on to claim Gretchen and her new boyfriend Slade Smiley drunk dialed her. ““A few weeks ago, [Rossi] and [Smiley] drunk-dialed me. Her conversation started out guarded with ‘why don’t you like me?’ She wanted to make amends, but she didn’t appear too sincere,” says Tamra.
Tamra goes on to insist she participated in the hearing in the spirit of honesty, and that Photoglou was “apologetic” for the waste of her time in court. Right Tamara.

Who Looked The Best Out of All The Housewives?
My favorite looks of the night surprisingly go to Kim Zolciak and Gretchen Rossi.
Gretchen Rossi, The Real Housewives of Orange County
Bethenny Frankel, The Real Housewives of New York City
The Real housewives attended the Bravo A list awards this weekend and below are pictures of the housewives. Very interesting seeing Gretchen with all the other OC housewives. The Real housewives of NY star Bethenny Frankel blogged about meeting all the housewives -
“This past weekend was the Bravo A-List Awards in LA, and I had the distinct pleasure of meeting all of the housewives. Yup, Atlanta and OC too.It was a weekend of a lot of wigs and a lotta weave. Here were the highlights: Kim is larger than life, off the rails, I don’t give an F, I drink, I smoke, my rack is hanging out, so stick it. Good TV for sure. Sheree was shockingly quiet, understated, nice and seemingly drama free (her flaming cling on gay glam friend notwithstanding). Lisa was tiny and peppy and sweet. Gretchen is bubbly and giggly and a stereotypically ditzy blonde, but truthfully, she seemed sweet on the surface as well. The fact that she’s dating Slade is too absurd to discuss, so I’ll let the viewers decide if he makes it next season. The blondes from OC have the most boobs and hair and lashes and Lynne made a funny comment that she could carve her initials in her face.
Where were the cameras? Truthfully, for a group of 13 women, I have to say, we played along very nicely. As for the husbands, except Simon Barney, most of them are wallflowers, and I’m not sure if George even speaks.
Freud would have a field day with this – Lauri “accidentally” sprayed Gretchen with her own personal airbrushing machine and her red carpet dress (which was half white) now had tan on it. She handled it surprisingly well.
What also made me laugh was the number of groupie entourage peeps these broads hung with. New Yorkers are independent. Ramona and I rolled solo while Atlanta and the OC had hair, makeup, friends, artists, drivers, bodyguards – you name it.The fact that my cast is way more subtle is truly astounding in and of itself.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County has yet to be greenlighted for it’s fifth season, and according to the NY Post, Slade and Gretchen’s new relationship might be playing a big factor.
As you all know by now, Gretchen and Slade are now a couple. Slade had appeared on previous seasons while dating Jo De LaRosa and Lauri Waring. The Post reports that the folks at Bravo are very skeptical of this publicity stunt new relationship and are not anxious to have Slade back on the show.
Bringing you the latest episode in the never ending soap opera of the OC housewives, TMZ is now reporting that Vicki Gunvalson is receiving death threats. I mean we just can’t make these things up even if we tried.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating two death threats received by Vicki. The sheriffs believe the two threats came from “a fanatical female fan who takes the show way too seriously.”
According to the Sheriff, Vicki received one of the threats through a phone call, and the other through an email sent to Jeana Keough. The email told Jeana not to worry about Vicki because she “would take care of Vicki for her.” The cops continue to investigate these threats.
While we can understand why people would hate Vicki, death threats is definitely taking it a bit too far. Wonder if Tamra is receiving threats as well?
In an attempt to prove he is not stalking Gretchen Rossi,Jay Photoglou decided to take a lie detector test and submit the results to RadarOnline. Jay is the sleazy guy who’s been claiming to be Gretchen’s ex boyfriend and leaking out every photo they ever took together.
Gretchen obtained a restraining order against him on March 6 on the grounds that Jay had threatened both she and her new boyfriend Slade Smiley. Jay claims he took 2 polygraph tests on March 21st. There’s obviously no way to verify this information, or even whether or not he really took a test. The results according to Jay are below -
Did you threatened to harm Gretchen Rossi? No
Did you threatened to strangle Gretchen Rossi? No
Did you threatened to dispose of Slade Smiley? No
Did threatened to hang yourself in Gretchen Rossi’s bedroom? No
Did you threaten to kill Gretchen Rossi’s dogs? No
Between midnight on 2/17/09 and 2/18/09, did you intentionally dial Gretchen Rossi’s telephone number? Yes
During this call did you make any threats to harm Gretchen Rossi? No
Did you make this phone call with the intention to play a song that had sentimental value to you? Yes
During this phone call did you speak to Gretchen Rossi? No
In the never ending drama of the OC housewives, Jeff’s ex wife and mother of his three children Sharon spoke out recently and cleared the air on the whole Gretchen issue. She posted this as a comment on our other blog. We were able to verify with 100% certainty that the comment was indeed written by Sharon. What she had to say is very interesting.
“My kids do NOT and NEVER have adored Gretchen….they know exactly what she’s about and what she’s up to and has been up to all along and their Dad knew it too. My daughter, Jill making any statement re. Gretchen explained that she simply doesn’t want anymore negative comments written about her Dad which is embarrassing and hurtful to her and her brother and sister. Jill appearing to defend Gretchen (slightly) is done only to quiet any negative statements made about her Dad period. Our three kids, Jennifer, Jill and Jake (Lizzy is not Jeff’s daughter, nor mine…she’s a long-time friend of our daughter Jill) are not fans of Rossi at all and how they describe her in real terms, isn’t nice and hasn’t been nice historically. The fact is, Jeff was never going to marry her and she knows it but likes to play it like they were so much in love (gee…wonder why???). I’ve known Jeff for 25 years and I did visit him in August while he was in the hospital at which time we talked a lot. What I know is totally different than what Gretchen portrays which means, I know the truth and she knows that I know the truth. Sometimes I feel pity for her which is about the most I can feel given all of her lies over the course of time. I really feel sorry for her family, especially her Mom.
My kids are so far above Gretchen in integrity, self-respect and character that it’s really embarrassing that they were ever exposed to her to begin with. Jeff said he was lonely and knew that he appeared desperate to a lot of people, probably both and not unlike a lot of people that are in their mid-life. Gretchen badgered him into being part of this show to begin with and Tamra exposing Gretchen for the fraud she is was gutsy even knowing that she’d experience some backlash from it. Gretchen screwing around on Chris with Jeff and on Jeff with Jay and Jay with Slade naturally would have it’s downside and if Gretchen believed that all of this would remain secret means that she is about as intelligent as a box of rocks. So….Jay exposed her…she’s earned all the disrespect she’s been given and gives to others and if she believes she deserves an iota of respect at all, well….I’m back to the box of rocks intellect again.”
