The third episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County marks the final episode of original cast member Jeana Keough and officially welcomes newbie Alexis, who actually went with husband Jim to have dinner with Tamra and Simon in last week's episode. At any rate, I'm sure we'll get to know more about Alexis in the coming weeks but for now, it's time to say goodbye to the housewife who's ditching the cameras to focus on work.
Jeana, who declines the invitation to a lingerie party at La Perla lingerie boutique in South Coast Plaza, is tired of all the drama and is ready focus on her family and work. But before the final curtain call, Jeana talks to Tamra about her divorce and her promising dating life. She even encourages Tamra to just mind her own business and to apologize to Gretchen, much to the dismay of Tamra of course who later calls Jeana a bitch.
As if that's not enough, we also hear Vicki say how Jeana "stirred the pot and became toxic in my life." It's not exactly how I pictured Jeana's last episode on The Real Housewives of Orange County to be but I guess Tamra's fiery words are nothing compared to Vicky's parting words, taking into account that Jeana considers Vicki as her friend. Those are some pretty tough words to take but I guess this validates Jeana's decision to leave the show even more.
"I am through with the housewives and all their drama," Jeana says. "I am not going to be hangin' out with the ladies. This is time for me to focus on myself. To become the best I can be at this point in my life. I'm glad to go into this next step and see what life holds for me."
"I haven't any regrets," she added. "But I'm glad that that phase of my life is over for now."
