The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

The OG’s of the OC React to Death of Matt Keough

Tragic news in Orange County. It was revealed over the weekend that former MLB pitcher and father to Kara, Shane and Colton passed away, only weeks after Kara Keough lost her baby boy.

As news spread, well wishes from Jeana’s former co-stars started to come in expressing their condolences. Jeana, who had been estranged from her ex-husband for years, paid tribute to the later father of her children by posting a simple photo of Matt Keough in his baseball days:

After the photo, friends, and frenemies sent condolences including Vicki Gunvalson who stated: “Rest in peace Matt.” Jo de la Rosa, an original ‘Housewife’ also chimed in stating, “I’m so incredibly sorry to hear about this. Sending love and prayer your way for your heart right now. I’m here if there’s anything you need.” Tamra, who has had her ups and downs with Jeana throughout the years stated “I’m so sorry for your loss. Big hugs and prayers.”

Jo, Jeana, and Vicki were all part of the original RHOC cast, which also highlighted the relationship between Jeana and Matt Keough. Jeana and Matt had been estranged for more than a decade; however officially divorced last year. Below is a photo of their wedding in much happier times:

Shane Keough shared his own tribute stating:

“My favorite place was always on your shoulders. It makes me smile knowing McCoy will be there with you; right there on your shoulders. It wasn’t always perfect but I wouldn’t change it for the world,” he wrote. “You taught me more than you’ll ever know and I hope that I make you proud. Kick back and enjoy the eternal sunshine. Till I see you again – I love dad.”

Our sincere condolences, thoughts, and prayers go out to the Keough family at this time.
