Stay-at-home mother and former swimsuit model Peggy Tanous, 41, joins the cast of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County. Tanous, a friend of Alexis Bellino’s, is ready for the drama to unfold in the series’ sixth season full of failed marriages, backstabbing friendships and hot new romances.
Tanous told Us Weekly, “People call me ‘Feisty Peggy’ and I can definitely be feisty! I’m an Aries [with a] very strong personality. Friends say I’m the life of the party.”
The mother of two was encouraged to join the show as an outlet to overcome postpartum depression, Us reports. Tanous’ daughters, London and Capri, are ages 3 and 1 1/2.
“When Alexis got on the show, we saw her, and my husband said, ‘Maybe this is something you should try because you’ve already been in the industry your whole life, and I feel like this could be something really good for you,’” the mother of two said. “It was kind of a perfect way for me to kind of get me back in the swing of things but not take me away from my family too much.”
Tanous added that she got along with everyone, especially Tamara Barney. The two share similar personalities and both love to joke. Ha ha ha.
What else we expect from Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino?
According to Bravo, Tamra and Simon officially split and she introduces a new boyfriend who’s much younger. Tensions between her and Gretchen grow and Tamra’s son Ryan reveals a shocking secret. Gretchen expands her make-up line to include handbags and a future marriage with Slade is a hot topic for gossip. She’s apprehensive and skeptical because of Slade’s closet full of skeletons. Vicki and Donn are also down the path to divorce and Vicki and Tamra vacation in Cabo San Lucas for a girls’ trip. Alexis launches a line of sexy dresses and may face home foreclosure. The ladies travel to Vegas and San Antonio and Tamra introduces 34-year-old Fernanda Rocha, a “hot Brazilian lesbian fitness instructor.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County premieres March 6 on Bravo.
