Another day, another Housewives casting rumor! Today, the subject is Orange County's 41-year-old mother of two, Peggy Tanous, who announced on Facebook that she has "declined [Bravo's]

offer to return to the show” for season 7, adding that she didn’t want to be a part of the “negative energy of certain cast members” and didn’t want to be forced to “have ‘dramatic’ confrontations” any longer.

For the network’s part, a Bravo spokesperson had simply this to say when contacted by EW about Tanous’ statement about her future on the show: “We have not yet made any casting announcements regarding season 7 of The Real Housewives of Orange County.”

Tanous’ full post on Facebook is as follows:

Hello Everyone, Many of you have been asking about season 7 and if I am returning. After months of negotiation and soul searching, I have declined their offer to return to the show. I just felt in my heart that being around the negative energy of certain cast members, being forced to have “dramatic” confrontations and the time it would take me away from my family was just not a healthy path for me…. I loved being a part of the Bravo family and do look forward to any new endeavors this may bring. I already have several opportunities to host upcoming TV shows that will empower woman, as well as my husband and I are about to launch our own wine. Who knows, perhaps if many of you want to continue to follow me and my family’s lives, then a new show can be created! One of “real” family fun, natural life drama, holistic living, life lessons and experiences. thank you all so much for your love and support!

Tanous only appeared as a full-fleged housewife on this past, sixth season of Orange County. But she made her mark through a legendary fued with Alexis. It’s easiest to keep track of all the housewives through their saucy line in the show’s opening credits. Her was: “Soccer moms drive mini vans but this girl drives a Bentley.”

Officially, season 7 of the series was greenlit in August. Production start dates on the Housewives shows is always hard to pin down, but fellow housewife Vicki Gunvalson Tweeted on Sept. 4 that it was “‘go time’ for season 7,” suggesting that the series is already being filmed.

    • Jess

      Wow that’s an ugly man!!!

  • dummy

    I think it’s spelled feud.

  • Lisa

    No they are FRAUDS. keep up test tube baby!

  • Rick

    Lisa – it’s misspelled in the article – you’re like the oc wives, too fast on the trigger. Dumbass!

    • Lisa

      I’m not dumb. Far from it. But thanks for clarifying. Can’t help but be defensive on here….seems like the spelling police are always on the prowl n will call out things that are clearly typos. My bad.

      • Rick

        No problem, I was just being sarcastic not insulting. I was trying to point out that the article is too irrelevant, hence let’s discuss the word feud lol

    • RealJunke

      I like how Lisa went completely in on the correction…lol!!! The internet is filled w/entertainment.

  • @Rick

    Slow down on the insults. Your punctuation isn’t too great there, bub.

  • Danny B

    Tamra posted last week on facebook in reference to when they were filming and how she had a weekend off, so they are already filming season 7

  • SaraS

    Aw, that’s actually too bad, I really liked her! At first I thought she was too much — too blonde, too much makeup, wayy too skinny — but she turned out to be really nice, smart and funny.
    I hope they get rid of Alexis then, no point of having her or her creepy husband on the show!

    • Kim

      Although you were on the show, I don’t see you having a show of your family alone. You did not have much impact. ?

      • lisa

        @Kim, I agree. She would never get her own show!

      • SaraS

        @Kim: I agree she’s never get her own show, and it’s funny to even insinuate that in her statement. It must be really stressful to “have” to go spend time with these women who probably stir up drama for no reason, trying ot make you look bad.. I actually prefer the shows where it’s more real, the women have genuine friendships.
        How many scenes do we have to see with the girls getting manicures, having lunch (wine), getting a belly dancing lesson.. it’s so contrived.

    • lisa

      I grew to like her as well. And I’m inclined to believe she did quit as opposed to being fired because Bravo had quite the lil story on their hands with her having dated Jim! A lot of ppl dislike Alex’s but I like her! I find her subservient wife role funny and entertaining.

    • RealJunke

      If you think she’s too blonde now, you should check out the childhood picture they have on bravotv.com lol…at least she’s a natural.

    • Smartypance

      I loved Peggy and her husband…Alexis is so damn fake and her fat pig of a husband is an arrogant jerk. Would rather see Peggy all day long than see five minutes of Jim, Alexis, or Slade… First lyn then Peggy…wtf!?!? Way to leave the entertaining women on this show…watch, jeanna will come back…zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
