And we see that you're not rolling in the dough -- as some suspected -- after Jeff's death.
Everybody had this misconception that I was with Jeff for his money.
On May 23, 2016, the network announced that all housewives from the previous season would return, with Kelly Dodd joining the cast, with former housewife Keough making a guest appearance. In June 2017, it was announced Gunvalson, Beador, King Edmonds, Judge, would all return, alongside new housewife Peggy Sulahian; former housewives Keough, Rossi and Rovsek were announced to make guest appearances. Date My Ex: Jo & Slade became the first spin-off from The Real Housewives of Orange County; the dating game show documented De La Rosa as she began dating after moving to Los Angeles, where potential suitors were regularly surveyed by Smiley.
It premiered on June 30, 2008 and ended on September 8, 2008 after broadcasting nine episodes during its first and only season.
It was always nice to be in a relationship with someone who was well off at the time that we were dating; I was spoiled rotten, yes. but I also made my own money and the show really didn’t show that side of me. or did anything, for that matter, until you mentioned it on the show. I’ve never lost that entrepreneurial spirit and I honestly believe that that’s what made Jeff fall in love with me … But once he passed away, reality set in really quick and I was like "holy smokes." I’ve now taken a good year and a half off from a very lucrative business … I was married once before; I know what being a housewife is. He just said, "Honey, you keep getting these opportunities.
They didn’t show me as the entrepreneur that I was. and you start looking at your savings account and you say, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s no more money filling up that." It just starts depleting itself because every month you still gotta pay those bills. But the modern-day housewife is a totally different housewife. So for me, I was engaged to Jeff to be married and I was very much in charge of the house -- cooking and decorating and doing all the things you would associate with the traditional housewife. Maybe there’s something in the universe telling you to do this. If you listen to it, I told Bryan that I didn't want the song overproduced. I said my prayer to Jeff and God before I walked out there. does this mean there will be no follow-up to another Housewives hit "Tardy to the Party"?
And when you’re used to living the high life, it’s hard to scale back.
So I get why some of the women were struggling to keep up with the Jones’, if you will, all the while they’re not making the same income as before.
Of the original housewives, Bryant and De La Rosa left after the first and second seasons, respectively, while Peterson stopped filming during production of the fourth season and Keough left after the sixth season commenced.
The remaining housewives joined in later seasons: Barney (now Judge) in the third, Mc Laughlin in the eighth before returning in the twelfth, Beador in the ninth, Edmonds in the tenth, Dodd in the eleventh, and Sulahian in the twelfth.
and even explaining those compromising images of Rossi and an electrically-charged bedroom friend that leaked on the Internet. If it starts doing well, and it’s doing great, and I gain enough momentum, and I build capital, I will get into phase two, which will be the retail.
