The Real Housewives of Orange County star Peggy Tanous hasn’t been on the show since she walked off in her second season. Peggy had been friends with Alexis Bellino, but the two kept competing over various things, including the development of their children and the amount of cars their husbands had. Tanous couldn’t stand it anymore and decided to end her friendship to Alexis and leave the Bravo show behind.
But it sounds like Peggy Tanous may have had some financial troubles, even though she never talked about it on the show. Tanous supposedly filed for bankruptcy back in February of 2013. The Tanous family filed for voluntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Apparently, Peggy cannot pay the mortgage on her home, and she has missed the payment an outrageous amount of times.
According to a new Radar Online report, The Real Housewives of Orange County star Peggy Tanous is rumored to have missed her mortgage payment 75 times. This is a monthly payment of $6,000. Apparently, Peggy owes the institution $1.54 million on the Irvine house that’s worth just $840,000. This was a home that was bought back in 2006.
But the report also states that Peggy has divorced her husband, Micah Tanous. It states that she only has an income of $2,500 due to child support payments from Micah. Peggy has never publicly said anything about the divorce, and Peggy is often tweeting about Micah.
According to the Inquisitr, Bravo just announced the cast for The Real Housewives of Orange County and Peggy is not a part of the new cast. In other words, Tanous cannot rely on Bravo to provide that extra money. But just because Peggy Tanous isn’t filming the show, she does seem to have an opinion about some of the newer cast members. Tanous recently slammed Terry Dubrow for getting involved in the drama with the ladies.
“For Terry Dubrow to comment is comical to me,” Peggy has revealed, adding, “He needs to stop trying to be a housewife and stick to being a doctor.”
Apparently, Peggy Tanous has some dirt on Terry. She wanted him to perform her surgery, but Tanous claims that Terry was more about filming for a reality show than actually doing the surgery.
“Dr. Dubrow got producers’ numbers because I filmed with him Season 6 about possibly doing my boobs, but he was all about the cameras, so I chose another doctor that I felt was more interested in my well being than in the cameras,” Peggy continues. “Due to this, Bravo never aired our consultation. After that, he contacted production to see if they would buy a show of Heather and her friends opening a restaurant. They said no and told him to have her audition for ‘Real Housewives.’”
