Real Housewives of OC: Peggy Tanous Had Postpartum Depression

There’s a new housewife in Orange County!

Peggy Tanous joins Season Six of The Real Housewives of Orange County.  Tanous is a 41-year old former model and now stay-at-home mom.  But she also struggled with post-partum depression after having her  daughters – London, 3 1/2, and Capri, 21 months.

“I had PPD really bad after I had my first daughter London, but didn’t realize I had it and was in denial. Then my husband and his mother did an intervention. I started taking a natural supplement called SAMe that really helped,” she said.

“I knew I wanted two kids, but was afraid to have another one.  We decided to try and figured it might take awhile. I got pregnant right away, but luckily was able to take the natural remedies throughout the pregnancy. I still had bad days, but when Capri was born it was a totally different feeling. I wasn’t scared or fearful, rather happy and nurturing,” she told Celebrity Baby Scoop.

“Talking about it helps and exercise also really helps. I try to take a lot of walks. I wanted to be open about my PPD on the show, as this show is centered mostly around drama and if I’m able to help people with what I dealt with I feel it makes it all worth it.”

How is Tanous dealing with being a Real Housewife?

“Being a stay-at-home mom is way more challenging than being a model. I think being a mom is a tougher job than any 9-5 job!”
