Real Housewives Tammy’s ex-husband Lou dies

A cast member of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Louis L. Knickerbocker, “died Tuesday morning after a heart attack, said friend and show creator Scott Dunlop,” the Orange County Register reports.

He was Tammy Knickerbocker‘s ex-husband, and since their divorce and bankruptcy, he “started his life over at age 62, building a real estate company, a mortgage company and a 50 percent share in another real estate company. He also rebuilt his personal life and remarried,” according to the paper.

USA TODAY’s Whitney Matheson notes that he “may be best remembered on the show as the man behind the perky, peppy ‘OC Angels,” and links to “behind-the-scenes footage featuring Lou, his Angels and the rest of the Housewives cast.”
