Former Playboy playmate and ZZ Top video muse Jeana Keough is one of the original Real Housewives. She helped launch the franchise by starring in the first five seasons of the show that started it all, Real Housewives of Orange County. Fans watched her go through a strange separation from her husband, former Oakland A’s pitcher Matt Keough), watched her kids go to college (daughter Kara is now married to Dallas Cowboys linebacker Kyle Bosworth!), and get into some nasty fights. Who can forget the time Tamra Judge threw that drink in Jeana’s face?
After leaving the show in 2010, Jeana is making a quiet comeback. She’s been appearing at parties on RHOC. She looks fantastic – she lost 25 lbs. – and her real estate business is thriving. But what exactly she brings to the current show remains a mystery. There’s no drama surrounding Jeana…yet. Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
