Hello Real Housewives of Orange County fans! We’re two weeks into the seismic change that is this year in the OC and I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be recapping the lives of the First Ladies of Bravo for the remainder of Season 15! I’m an OG RHOC fan — I’ve been watching since Season 1, Episode 1. That was all the way back in 2005 when I’d sneak Bravo on the TV in my parents’ room, daydreaming about life behind the tony gates of Coto de Caza. Well, that and crushing hard on Shane Keough while stressing about whether Lauri Waring Peterson would ever live the OC lifestyle again. Of course, none of the women currently on the show were even a twinkle in Andy Cohen‘s eye at that point. And to be frank, I had my fair share of reservations going into the season because of that.
Could RHOC survive without Vicki Gunvalson? What about Tamra Judge? As a resident Housewives expert, I’ve always been an ardent believer that each city in the franchise needs an OG to act as anchor to the show’s history. So no matter how many ‘Wives came and went through Bravo’s revolving door, there would always be someone who’d been there from the very beginning. And whether I loved or hated them in any given season, I truly expected to watch Vicki and Tamra whooping it up in a retirement community thirty years from now for Season 45.
Tragedy struck Jeana Keough‘s family earlier this month when her ex-husband Matt Keough passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 64.
Now, two weeks after his devastating passing, the Real Housewives of Orange County alum is finally speaking out about the reason behind her ex’s death and how it has affected her family.
Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jeana Keough and her family have been going through a lot lately. Last month, Jeana’s daughter Kara Keough and her husband Kyle Bosworth welcomed their second child together, a baby boy. Sadly, baby McCoy Bosworth passed away at childbirth.
Just a couple weeks later, Jeana’s ex-husband Matt Keough passed away. In addition to Kara, Matt and Jeana had two sons together, Colton Keough and Shane Keough, who RHOC viewers saw a lot of during the early days of the show. Kara has been very open and honest as she goes through her grief, mourning the loss of her father and her newborn son. Recently, Jeana spoke out for the first time.
The Keough family is really going through a difficult time. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jeana Keough’s daughter Kara Keough lost her son McCoy in childbirth. She has been very open and honest about her struggles during this period.
As if life wasn’t difficult enough, Kara recently revealed that her father Matt Keough passed away. Jeana and Matt had three kids together, Kara, Colton Keough, and Shane Keough. After over twenty years of separation, Jeana revealed that the two of them were officially divorced at BravoCon in November 2019.
OG Real Housewives viewers have fond memories of Jeana Keough and her three kids, Shane, Colton, and Kara Keough. We got to witness them grow up at such a pivotal era in their lives. The fans saw Kara graduate high school and go on to college. Kara does not live in Orange County anymore.
She currently resides in Florida with her husband Kyle Bosworth and their daughter Decker. The Bosworths were very excited to welcome a second child to the family. Unfortunately, Kara shared some absolutely heartbreaking news after she gave birth. She lost her son that day.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough is undeniably an OG of the OC. No matter how much Vicki Gunvalson claims she is responsible for the entire Housewives franchise, Jeana was right there with Queen Vicki in the beginning. Jeana left the show after five seasons and has popped up on occasion since then. It is difficult to imagine Jeana fitting in with today’s cast, like dramatic Shannon Beador, out-of-control Kelly Dodd and exhibitionist Braunwyn Windham-Burke. And we all know how much Jeana loves Tamra Judge!
When Jeana was a Housewife, much of her storyline centered around her children, sons Shane Keough and Colton Keough and daughter Kara Keough. Her marriage to Matt Keough was a bit of a mystery and their marital status was confusing. The couple was separated and Jeana dated a bit while filming. Over the years, there have been rumors that Jeana and Matt were divorced. Now, Jeana is clearing up her marital status once and for all.
Jeana Keough has been wearing the same hairstyle since the eighties, but that doesn’t mean her head isn’t full of great ideas! Jeana was, of course, present at Bravo Con this past weekend. People who couldn’t attend the way overpriced convention were able to catch Jeana on the Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen stage for a hot second this past Sunday. I mean it when I say that I admire Jeana for amping her face up a bit, and keeping that hair. Hot roller bangs forever!
Was anyone else beyond excited to catch WWHL last Sunday? You could feel Andy’s excitement and it was like he read my mind by closing out the show with Kim Zolciak Biermann’s Don’t Be Tardy. Anyways, for those who watched, you know we really didn’t get to hear much from the Real Housewives of Orange County on stage. There were so many people in attendance, so many Bravolebrities, that the interviews had little info. That doesn’t mean that Jeana was quiet. In fact, she shared some amazing ideas in interviews at the convention.
