Report: 'Real Housewives of Orange County' adding new housewife
By Reality TV World staff, 08/05/2010
The Real Housewives of Orange County is reportedly adding a new housewife for its sixth season.
Peggy Tanous, a friend of existing The Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino, will be joining the Bravo reality series for its upcoming season, Radar Online reported Wednesday.
Tanous is "truthful and blunt" and "always tell it the way it is," according to Radar Online insiders. Her husband Micah Tanous, an Internet entrepreneur, will also reportedly be joining the show, which they have already appeared in during prior episodes.
Tanous will reportedly join Bellino, Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson, and Gretchen Rossi in the new season -- which would seem to support recent rumors that Lynne Curtin won't be returning for the show's sixth season. Curtin had joined The Real Housewives of Orange County's cast during its fourth season, which premiered in November 2008.
Bellino joinedThe Real Housewives of Orange County during its fifth season, which debuted last fall. She replaced original Housewives star Jeana Keough, who will be returning to Bravo in the network's new upcoming Thintervention with Jackie Warner reality series.
