Tommy Garcia/Bravo

The OG’s of the O.C. are back! The Real Housewives of Orange County returns on July 10, 2017 and is already proving to be a highly anticipated season. Not only is Lydia McLaughlin returning to the show after joining the cast for one season back in 2013, but she’s bringing a friend with her! Peggy Sulahian is Bravo’s newest Housewife and from the looks of the new trailer, she’s going to bring a lot of luxury and drama with her. In anticipation of season 12, here’s a look at 6 things to know about RHOC’s newest Housewife Peggy Sulahian.

6. Armenian Background

Peggy Sulahian was born in Kuwait and both her parents are Armenian. She moved to the United States when she was 1 and now lives in the Crystal Cove community with her husband and their children.

5. How They Make Their Money

It’s clear from looking at Peggy Sulahian’s social media that she lives a life of luxury — her Bravo bio states that as well! Her husband Diko supports the family through his high end designer wheel and rim company. He owns the WTW Corporation which specializes in rims. Since her husband works with high end cars, Peggy crosses paths with a lot of celebrities. Her Instagram shows pictures with Justin Bieber, Jamie Foxx and French Montana.

4. Breast Cancer

She lost her mother to breast cancer when she was 51. This loss caused her to make the difficult decision to undergo a double mastectomy after doctors found a lump in her breast. In this newest season viewers will watch as Peggy prepares to undergo reconstructive surgery.

2. 100th Housewife

In addition to being RHOC’s newest member, Peggy Sulahian holds the title of being Bravo’s 100th Housewife! She was introduced to the group through another new-ish Housewife, Lydia McLaughlin, who is returning this season after only appearing on one season back in 2013.

1. She Loves to Race Cars

This is probably due to the fact that her husband runs a company that deals with high end cars, but either way, Peggy Sulahian is the first Housewife in the franchise to race cars as a hobby! She posted a photos of herself in a Lamborghini with the caption, “Who’s ready to race? I love driving fast cars!” We can tell she likes fast cars from her impressive collection which is all over her social media.
