Peggy Sulahian is finally addressing rumors that she’s homophobic.
The Real Housewives of Orange County newbie has stayed quiet for months allowing rumors and speculation to fester.
However, now Peggy is telling her truth.
Perhaps Peggy is loving the limelight and wants to get a second season as a Housewife! #truth
Peggy opened up to the Huffington Post and denied claims she’s homophobic while shedding some light on her troubled relationship with her estranged brother.
“We have been estranged for more than 20 years. He was informed of our father’s passing and was present at the funeral. There were many people there to attest to this fact. Regarding the allegations of homophobia, perhaps actions speak louder than words. I am surrounded by people of every race, faith, and lifestyle choice, so the answer is clearly NO,” Peggy explained.
As for rumors she refused to appear on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Peggy says it simply isn’t true.
“No, scheduling did not permit it earlier (see above regarding Peggy’s recuperation post surgery). I am looking forward to going on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday, October 2nd,” Peggy revealed. “I love Andy and his personality and can’t wait to finally meet him! And of course I will be at the reunion, isn’t it all about the reunion anyway?!!”
“I will not further engage in a public exchange with anyone, but it must be stated that the accusations against me are false and my actions have been grossly mischaracterized. Please know how much my family and I appreciate all of those who have stood by me and supported me. Your support is extremely appreciated, and my family and I are very grateful,” Peggy wrote.
I’m happy to see Peggy responding to the allegations against her, but it’s too little too late if you ask me. Still, Peggy is dancing around the subject and isn’t giving us enough of a response. I think Peggy is desperate to be invited back for another season and is trying to do damage control.
Thoughts on Peggy’s response? Do you think Peggy is homophobic? Has been Peggy been mischaracterized? Did Peggy hurt her Housewives career by not addressing these allegations sooner? Will you watch Peggy on WWHL? Do you like Peggy? Is Peggy a good fit for RHOC?
