Ready or not, there is a new OC housewife ready to make her mark!
As we reported last week, Peggy Tanous is officially NOT returning for the Real Housewives of Orange County season 7. According to Peggy, the decision was her choice, but really who knows?
What is clear is that Bravo has already replaced Peggy on the series with newbie Heather Dubrow! The National Enquirer was the first to break the story which has now been confirmed by other media outlets.
Heather, pictured above at the 2002 People’s Choice Awards, is an actress who is married to plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow. The two tied the knot in 1999, have four children together and reside in Newport Beach, CA. Heather, who used to go by the name Heather Paige Kent, also appeared on the 2000-2002 CBS drama That’s Life.
Heather’s husband Terry made the following tweet on September 27 — “Ok I’ll admit. I’m doing a major new reality program. Cameras everywhere. Very weird.” He however now claims he was not referring to the RHOC but rather a plastic surgery show he was filming for a Latino network. Dr. Terry is no stranger to reality TV as he has appeared on Fox’s The Swan and E!’s Bridalplasty.
Heather also tweeted the following to Gretchen Rossi after attending her improv show on Oct. 6 (yes Gretchen is now doing comedy improv with Slade): “@GretchenRossi you guys were awesome! So brave ! Loved being there!”
Meanwhile, Peggy told The ENQUIRER, “I declined Bravo’s offer to return to the show. The atmosphere was just too toxic.”
