ANOTHER Bravo Housewife Walks!

Oct 5, 2011 03:15 PM


Is Bravo's most famous franchise falling apart? The Real Housewives series on Bravo has flourished as a huge hit for the network -- shows fueled by gossip, drama and catty fun for the audience.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband committed suicide in August. Family and friends spoke of pressures he felt from the show, and Russell himself said it had pushed his family "to the limit." Taylor told Dr. Phil McGraw that Russell might still be alive if not for the show.

Then, over the weekend New Jersey's Jacqueline Laurita, Tweeted that she was "losing it" from all the drama with other cast members, and said she had quit the show in the middle of filming Season 4.

Now, Orange County's newest cast member, Peggy Tanous (left), has quit. She posted to her Facebook page on Tuesday:

    "I have declined their [Bravo's] offer to return to the show. ... being around the negative energy of certain cast members, being forced to have 'dramatic' confrontations ... was just not a healthy path for me ..."

Tanous, 41, had only been a member for the most recent season (season six.)

Bravo recently fired four members of its Real Housewives of New Jersey cast. What do you think -- is the series reaching its breaking point?

Is Bravo's Real Housewives franchise on its way out?

Yes! The network is pushing these people too much.
No! Audiences thrive on drama and plenty of people want to be on reality TV!
I hope so! SO tired of these bickering women!

Real Housewives of OC Reunion Gets Angry

Jun 3, 2011 08:35 AM

"Is your a** jealous of the s*** that comes out of your mouth?"

"You were sleeping with another guy while your fiance was dying."

"She's lying!"

"You are lying!"

"You're the lowest form of s*** there is in the world."

Those are just a few of the choice statements screamed in the preview for The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion, which airs June 12 at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo. The season finale airs this Sunday.

Since Bravo is promoting the reunion and the season finale hasn't even aired yet, we're guessing that the reunion gets even more volatile than the preview shows!

The trailer even features Vicki Gunvalson's estranged husband, Donn, saying: "I don't think the way this went down was treated with class or dignity." That's more sad than salacious. (This season chronicled their relationship's breakdown.)

Gunvalson was photographed out with a new boyfriend in May.

Gunvalson released the following statement: "Donn has been an important part of my life and he will continue to be. Anyone who has gone through a divorce understands that this is a personal matter and a difficult time in our lives. It's amicable and we are not at odds with one another. It's just time. I would also like to thank all of you for the love and support that we have received."

This was Vicki's second marriage. The couple renewed their vows in front of the cameras in 2009.
