A judge has granted a bank permission to take former Real Housewives of Orange County star Peggy Tanous' house, after five years of unpaid mortgage bills. has exclusively learned that the U.S. Bank can now kick Tanous out of the Irvine, Calif. home where she's lived for the last eight years, despite a previous order that allowed her to stay there since filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in February 2013.

The house was just just three days away from a foreclosure sale when Tanous filed for voluntary bankruptcy.


U.S. Bank claims Tanous has missed the last 75 monthly payments of $6,000, and that she owes the institution $1.54 million, on a house that's worth just just $840,000. Tanous also owes $300,000 to another bank on a second mortgage on the house she bought in 2006, according to a court filing.

Court documents show Tanous' annual income is $30,000 a year since she left the reality show in 2012.

Her only income appears to be $2,500 in child support from ex-husband Micah Tanous, although she's never publicly acknowledged the divorce.

And she can't plan on Bravo paychecks to save the day: A source recently told Radar she "hasn't been asked back" to film RHOC again.
