RHOC season 12 is currently filming, and while a lot has been confirmed about casting, there is still so much that’s unknown.
Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, and Vicki Gunvalson are officially in, while Heather Dubrow not coming back. Lydia McLaughlin is said to be returning to the franchise; it’s suspected that she have a full time role, but there’s always a chance she is just, “a friend.” Meghan King Edmonds loves to keep us guessing, however it looks pretty likely that she too will be back in some capacity.
With Heather gone there is room for at least one new woman in the group, and thanks to our friend Real Housewives 101, one of the newbies has been confirmed.
Peggy is a seasoned Orange County resident, but has not been linked to RHOC before. There is evidence online that she has a successful real estate career, however several sources agreed that she sells Rodan & Fields beauty products, and does not work in real estate; I guess we will find out soon enough.
A RHOC insider told us, “Peggy is spitfire who will bring a lot to the show.” Another source told us that she is “feisty,” and will be a “great addition to the season 12 cast!”
Peggy has been married to her husband Diko for 21 years and they have three beautiful children together; 21 years is a lifetime in housewives’ years! The family is very charitable, and after some digging it became quite clear that they care very much about giving back.
Peggy’s husband owns WTW Corporation and is the founder of Giovanna Wheels; allegedly he is the, “king of wheels and rims” when it comes to luxury vehicles and fancy sports cars. By the looks of his website, the wheels business does very well, and he has many celebrity clients; the Sulahian’s will fit right in with the mega-money on RHOC!
Another AATRH friend-site All Celeb Polls made a fantastic comparison, one that I have to agree with; Diko resembles Jim Marchese! Let’s just hope when it comes to personality he and Jim are nothing alike!
Interestingly enough, an insider revealed that Peggy “has no current connection” to the cast, but was sought out by producers anyway. However, another source close to RHOC said that Jaci (Shannon’s “friend” from the 1970’s party) connected Peggy to the show. If this is true, Peggy and Kelly may be going head-to-head this season. Regardless, Bravo will find a way to tie her into the existing cast and attempt to present it as a natural connection.
Peggy has a minimal social media presence, and the one account she has is private. We’ve heard that she’s, “not social media savvy;” that will change soon enough!
Stick with AATRH for all RHOC casting updates, we’ve got more on season 12 coming your way tomorrow!
