Jeana Keough has confirmed rumors she’s leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County because of money. She’ll appear in the first three episodes of the new season, which debuted last night; Bravo claims that she’s leaving because her “real estate business has been hit the hardest, and she makes the decision to turn her focus away from the ladies to concentrate more on her work and family.”
But Jeana told The Daily Beast, “I just didn’t feel appreciated by the girls or the network. There’s a lot of work that is involved–it’s an all-year-round thing with all of the shooting and the press, and it wasn’t enough.”
Meanwhile, Vicki Gunvalson said the show has almost cost her money. “I almost lost a very large client of mine–a $2 million client–because he Googled me and said he didn’t like what he was seeing on the TV show. I never tell my clients I’m on the show, and I hope they don’t watch it, truthfully. They’re over 65. They don’t understand–this,” she said.
