Peggy Sulahian isn’t the only one getting the Housewives heave-ho from the O.C., has exclusively learned.

They were not planning on bringing Meghan back,” said the source, “but she sprung the pregnancy news on them at the reunion. So she’s kind of forcing them to bring her back even though they didn’t want to.”

"She didn't bring anything to the table," a source said.
