The housing market in Orange County is tough these days. The Real Housewives of Orange County aren’t immune to the housing issues facing folks in California.
In the past year Tamra Barney, Jeana Keough, Alexis Bellino, and Lynne Curtin have all faced down the housing market downturn to varying results. Even the newest housewife on the block, Peggy Tanous, is having her own housing woes and she hasn’t even had any screen time yet this season.
The most public housing predicament occurred with former Housewife Lynne Curtin who was famously evicted during last season. Her eviction is even rumored to be one of the reasons she was dropped from the show this season since she no longer showed off the fabulous Orange County lifestyle. Current Housewife Alexis Bellino is currently foreclosure on her Newport Beach mansion. The house is now being offered for a short sale after reaching a deal with their lender to avoid an auction. Tamra Barney sold off her Tuscan style home in a short sale last year. Former Housewife Jeana Keough renegotiated her loan with her lender in order to keep her family home. Even the newest housewife, Peggy Tanous, is facing down with her lender to try to keep her $1.38 million home before we’ve even gotten a glimpse of it this season.
Maybe the Housewives should stop mocking fellow Housewife Gretchen Rossi and join her in living a more frugal lifestyle in a modest California townhome!
