Orange County’s Peggy Tanous: Fired by Bravo?

Posted on October 4th, 2011 at 8:58 am

In our latest article from guest blogger and Real Housewives expert LynnNChicago, we discover some casting changes are happening at the Real Housewives of Orange County!

“It is confirmed, Peggy Tanous who spent one disastrous season on the Real Housewives of Orange County will not be returning for a second season.  Peggy joins a long list of Orange County Housewives who just ran for one season then was left on the side of the road by Bravo.  Peggy did her best to get into the cool kids club with Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson even turning against her long-time friend Alexis Bellino just to try to be popular but it was an epic failure.  Fans didn’t like her and her fellow housewives don’t seem all that upset about losing either.

Vicki Gunvalson, the longest running housewife in the history of the franchise was quoted at the Atlantic City opening of the Housewives tour as saying, “Peggy’s (Tanous) not going to be joining us this year so we have a new cast member – you have to watch what happens with her. I just met her a couple of times so I think it’s going to be ok.”  Vicki has had so many cast-mates over the years that didn’t last, she’s likely immune to the changes.

Orange County Housewives begin filming later this month!”

UPDATE: Since this story was first posted, Peggy has confirmed she’s leaving the reality show on Bravo. She writes, “I just felt in my heart that being around the negative energy of certain cast members, being forced to have ‘dramatic’ confrontations and the time it would take me away from my family was just not a healthy path for me.”

She goes on to write that she has many offers to host TV shows that empower women and she and her husband are releasing their own wine.

      Not to be unkind, but Real Housewives & wineries… reconsider that one.

      SERIOUSLY, WINE? OMFG. Any body who thinks she left BRAVO and BRAVO did’nt leave her is MENTAL.

      Should The Loire be worried?  I think not!

      Bravo is allowing her to announce that she quit but she recently tweeted and posted on Facebook that she was excited about filming the upcoming season.  She must have jumped the gun since her contract was never signed.  Sorry Pegs, we know you didn’t quit but we’ll allow you to leave with your dignity, as long as you leave. :)

      • Peggy is short for Margerett

        You know you been fired when you say ”

        “Who knows, perhaps if many of you want to continue to follow me and my
        family’s lives, then a new show can be created! One of ‘real’ family
        fun, natural life drama, holistic living, life lessons and experiences.”
         
        A few weeks ago she wasn’t saying this. LOL

      We won’t have to put up with her obnoxious, arrogant husband any longer either!!

    • Heather

      I heard she filmed a dinner party with all the girls and quit the next day. If I had to be in a room with all those other women, I would too!

      Now if only Theresa would be NEXT.. 

    • Eluzader

      GOODBYE~~Take Tamara with you!!!

      Wish Bravo would fire Vicki.  Just about had enough of the bull sized bleached blonde who’s only claim to fame is her striking resemblance to “Miss Piggy.”

      Hey – Miss Piggy is at least cute – Vicky is just puke on a stick – that may be the ugliest woman I have ever seen – as my great grandfather would say – that girl would draw a blister on brick wall –
      Good ridance to Peggy the fake ass ho – If only she would take that low life class act Tamara with her – good grief that girl is the spitting image of “money can’t buy you class” – rock on Luanne
