As The Real Housewives of Orange County get to know newbie Peggy Sulahian this season, they seem to have a lot of questions about her life — namely, her breast cancer diagnosis and preventative double mastectomy.
That has been a difficult experience for Peggy, who recently clarified that she was given a breast cancer diagnosis after a lump was found in her breast. "I don't like it," Peggy shared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Monday night. "They shouldn't ask; they should be supportive, and that's not what I got at all."
Much of the confusion about Peggy's health seemed to stem from the fact that she had a double mastectomy, even though she tested negative for the BRCA gene. Peggy explained in one of her blogs on Bravotv.com that though the tests came back negative, she decided to undergo the procedure to prevent a cancerous growth from spreading. "I think it was a place of interrogation; it wasn't a place of confusion, because I myself was in denial so it was really hard to express it and to tell them," Peggy told Andy Cohen when asked if she understood why the RHOC ladies seemed to be confused.
Shannon Beador's husband David Beador was the latest person to inquire about Peggy's health when speaking to her husband Diko Sulahian in Monday night's episode of RHOC. Though Peggy was upset when she heard about their conversation, some of the other OC Housewives came to David's defense on Twitter. Tamra Judge thought Peggy was exaggerating the situation when speaking with her daughter, while Meghan King Edmonds said, "I see it as David was just trying to understand Diko by asking questions, just like the rest of us. No interrogation, just confusion."
The RHOC ladies are set to learn more about Peggy and her family in next Monday night's episode. Catch a sneak peek, below.
