We just filmed our reunion show last Tuesday, so I'm feeling much lighter. All the past issues have been hashed out now! Whew, what a season!
This week's episode put a smile on my face. Micah and I go to Vegas with our friends Kirsten and Brady and Tamra and Eddie for Micah's birthday. We had so much fun! I had done my boudoir shoot the week before, so I couldn't wait for Vegas to present Micah with a leather bound book of all the photos. He always tells me what he wants for his birthday or buys it for himself, so I couldn't wait to give him this photo book that I kept a secret from him! We had a great time by the pool when we first got there. You can watch us hanging out in our bikinis in this Bravotv.com clip.
At dinner you see Micah talking about friendships. We have gone through a transition period with a lot of friendships lately, but we are so happy now. We decided we wanted more couples in our lives with whom we can share our ups and downs . We want to get along with both partners equally. Friends that are down to earth, value their families, and like to have fun! In the next scene you see Micah kickin' butt at pool in our suite, and then I come out to give him his surprise. I was so happy and excited that he had no idea what he was getting! I think you could see he was very surprised and loved his gift. You can see all the photos at www.peggytanous.com. After I gave him the book, we met up with everyone else and had an amazing dinner at T-Bones and then headed to the club in our hotel. By the end of the night Tamra and I were dancing on tables (you can watch it here).
Once home from Vegas, we see Tamra and Vicki going to dinner. Vicki confides in Tamra that she is headed for divorce. This was so hard to watch. After seeing Vicki and Donn last season renew their vows, I was really hoping they would make it. But they both stopped communicating and were not happy. I truly think Vicki gave it her all and realized it wasn't going to work, so it was time for her to walk away and find happiness. I'm happy to say I've hung out with Vicki a few times since that scene, and she is definitely getting her happy back!
You're by far my fav OC housewife. You are truly an inspiration to women and I want to commend you for coming forward with your experience with post partum depression. Don't allow Alexis to bother you. You're so far above her its almost comical how she tries to throw jabs at you. Simply put, she's clearly jealous-and she has good reason to be. You're everything she wishes she were but could never be. Keep it pushin girl!
You have turned out to be such a likable housewife. I love the way you have handled yourself this season and you can see that your relationship with Micah is beautiful. I look up to how you did not judge Tamara and Vicki based off of the other girl's opinions. I hope you come back the next season and remain the classy person you are.
I'm really glad you seem to finally be over your postpartum depression. I'm sure many vitamins & other "healthy alternatives" can be very helpful for some people in some situations. However, many women, including myself, were able to get over postpartum depression MUCH SOONER than you did by taking either the mini-pill or a (usually temporary) antidepressant. While I think it's fine that you 'push' "healthy alternatives", if you are going to be a spokesperson for postpartum depression like you've been in the past, you should at least mention that for many women, a traditional medical treatment gets quicker results. You have a huge audience. Therefore, it's your responsibility to offer the best alternatives (all of them) & allow your viewers to make an informed decision.
Peggy, I just love you! You are the best addition to this show! Alexis is so obviously jealous of you and Micah and with good reason, you are both such nice classy people. Don't be friends with her, she is so toxic! She is a phoney.
If Tamara was disrupting the party by texting, then what do you call it when someone spends 75% of a party in a bathroom crying because this was the first event she has been to without her husband?
Peggy, You are like a breath of fresh air in the OCHW. I just love you. I hope you remain true and as sweet as you are and do not allow the fame and drama to corrupt you as I have seen in many of the ladies on all the Real Housewives shows. I have watched many of them start off as a whole different person then become someone so completely different and unrecongnizable. I am watching that same change in Alexis and Gretchen this season. The fame is really taking over Alexis and I am not likeing the person she has become and I'm sorry it is destroying your friendship. I think when it begins to change you it is time to get out. Stay sweet!
Be true to yourself and don't let Alexis's comments get you down. You're a class-act, welcome to the show.
Peggy you're the best addition to OC!!! You are so sexy + wonderful mom & wife -- I get inspired from watching you on the show so that I can bring some Peggyness to my life and marriage. Wishing you the best!
I hope that you and Alexis can be friends again. Whenever a relationship goes sour, it is never entirely one persons fault. I think Alexis is at times competitve. However, I also think that you are a little stuck on yourself. Too many times egos get in the way of relationships. Can't wait for the finale and the reunion:)
You seem so genuine! Yes you may have said some things about Alexis, but you were nice to her at her event and really seemed to wish her the best! Stay away from the A and G side!
Peggy - I appreciate how real you are and that you are honest without bashing everyone. Alexis has lost her shine this year because she is constantly bashing this season. The negative vibe gets old. Stay kind and true and you won't lose your shine.
Peggy you are my new fav housewife. I no longer can't stand Gretchen & her loser side-kick Alexis. You are a real warm person & I adore your relationship with your hubby. Keep your positive energy & looking forward to see more of you next season. Have a great summer!
I would just like to tell you that since joining the cast, you are my favorite! With the other ladies, they have moments where they are likable, but it seems that in every episode someone does something outrageous that makes me dislike them. You, however, have been the same person throughout the entire show. I love that you are not confrontational and not two-faced but you also know how to tell people when they are wrong without going crazy or making a scene.
You are so beautiful and so smart!
What your husband said about OC PEOPLE..... is right on the money..... after all money does not buy you class or happiness.... I am hoping you and Alexis can get back to being friends.... I like you both....... I agree with what you said about Donn and Vicki..... bad communication..... but I don't think that Vicki tried to hard to keep her marriage afloat.... she just travels way to much WITHOUT her husband.. she needs to stop working all those long hours and think about Donn..... he too needs that hug just as much as she does..... Anyway... love ya and your precious kids.....
Peggy, you are amazing, classy, beautiful, and smart!!! I was reading some comments readers left you regarding the party. You should have looked at Alexis and asked her how it felt to have her party "disrupted", I quote another reader. But you did not, You are class and no stress all the way. This is why you are spectacular and fabulous!!!
Love u xoxoxo
Hi Peggy, I have to be honest, at first I didn’t really care for you on the show. I guess it’s because you were new and I didn’t know too much about you. But, now after watching you on these last few episodes, I think that you are alright. I also think that you are not fake, you’re real, and you’re not a mean and spiteful person like Gretchen. You are also not a jealous person like Alexis. I think that you have great family. Take care!!
Peggy, I think you are wonderful and am so glad you are on the show. I do not believe that Alexis a a friend. More an adversary. Watch out!
Keep it real! Stay on the show and kick some butt! Love what you add to the show!
PEGGY, I THINK YOU DID A GOOD JOB OF TRYING TO REMAIN ON THE PERIPHERY OF ALL THE MADNESS.... I STILL THINK IT'S A SHAME YOUR FRIENDSHIP WITH ALEXIS IS OVER-BUT HER HUSBAND WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN SOMEONE I'D WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH...SO I AM SURE THAT ASPECT DIDN'T HELP. STILL, IT'S SAD TO LOSE A FRIEND. YOU REMAIN POSITIVE AND THAT'S WHAT I THINK BRINGS OUT THE GOOD IN YOU! I WAS GLAD YOU WERE A NEW ADDITION!
You show a lot of restraint by not immediately reacting to Alexis ugly comments. I admire that type of quality.
Good for you by not using your blog to bash people (AB) in like some other people (AB). Shows you're a class above.
Peggy, you have a lot of class & style and I've enjoyed watching you on the show. Alexis has been really rude and insulting to you and it just shows her insecurity.
Way to go! You said what all of us are thinking. Love it! Keep it coming..you are a breath of fresh air on this show. Fabulous girl!!!
I think your husband should be one of the housewives and not you since he likes to talk about people behind their back quite a bit. Just saying.
I guess you and your husband have been living beyond your means as well. I mean aren't you going through the same thing that Alexis and her husband went through. Aren't you having issues with your mortgage?
I would have to say many people are in the same position, so just look in the mirror.
Other than this, I do like your disposition.
Peggy... I love watching you and your family..welcome to the show you are a breath of fresh air... stick with vicki and tamra and you will be ok... I loved your birthday present to your husband what a great idea...just wanted to wish you the best
You are one of my favorite housewives to date. I'm so glad they brought you on the show! Also please do not associate yourself with low class individuals like Alexis and Gretchen, those two are bad news.
You are amazing! Love you Peggy, I hope you're back for Season 7, you're the main reason I watch the show!
Peggy, I like how you try to stay away from all the drama, but Alexis and Gretchen try to suck you in a little. Each one of these ladies have their issues and to understand them you would have to watch the past seasons and you will be able to understand some things. Stay true to your self, you have wonderful family.....
Peggy you hit the nail on the head with what you said about Alexis and Gretchen. You are becoming my favorite because there's no drama with you. Keep your head up and don't let these women sink their claws into you! You're doing great! :)
I totally agree with you, Peggy!! You should have looked at Alexis and asked her how it felt to have her party "disrupted"- what Tamra did was NOTHING compared to what Alexis did to you!!
Peggy, I find you to be such a class act. My heart was breaking for you in Texas. It looked like you were about to cry a couple of times. It was refreshing to see you and your hubby enjoying a get away with Tamra, Eddie and your other friends. You seem like a devoted wife, mother and friend. I am really enjoying you this season and hope that you will be back next year. You and Micah will be the only couple out of this that grows old together in my opinion....good luck to you.
Hey Peggy, I just love how you remind me of me!!! I am not realy big into gossip, and always remain Calm, Cool & Collective!!Your husband is a Tell it like it is kinda of guy, and seems like he is so easy to get along with!! You both do not feed into the drama, and therefor remain a Class Act!!!I cant say one bad thing about you or your husband!!!Love Ya
I like you so much more every week! I think you hit the nail right on the head when talking about Alexis. She probably does regret getting you on the show. But, you don't have to worry , your personality, intelligence and beauty will keep you on it. i think she is just jealous of you and what you have. Like Micah said, don't live above your means and we all know Alexis and Jim are living way above there means.
