Meet 41 year-old Peggy Tanous, domestic goddess and mother of two. She’s the new blond addition to Bravo’s Barbie Collection (a.k.a. “The Real Housewives of O.C.“), and she really wants you to know something about her: She’s an Aries—the hardcore “feisty” kind! Wow.

The former swimsuit model and TV host is set to join the cast for Season 6, and from the looks of it, she’s ready to unleash her boisterous fire sign to get the party started right.

“People call me ‘Feisty Peggy’ and I can definitely be feisty! I’m an Aries [with a] very strong personality. Friends say I’m the life of the party,” she tells Us Magazine.

And guess what? According to Miss Pegs, landing a spot on the reality show cured her of postpartum depression! (Did you hear that Brooke Shields? No pills!)

“It was kind of a perfect way for me to kind of get me back in the swing of things but not take me away from my family too much,” Tanous reveals, referring to her husband and two daughters London, 3, and Capri, 1.

But did she get along with the ladies?

“I didn’t clash with anyone! I got along with everyone,” she says, adding that she “hit it off the most” with cast member Tamra Barney.

As for working with the strong-minded Vicki Gunvalson, Tanous explains it in astro-speak (again): “Vicki and I are both Aries! So when I met her, I was like ‘You have got to be great because you’re an Aries, because I’m an Aries and I’m great!’” she banters. “We had a whole Aries vibe going.”

The season premiere of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs March 6 on Bravo.
