Sarah Winchester was brought onto Real Housewives of Orange County as a ‘friend of the Housewives.’ Sarah was a close friend of Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino and even rumored to be dating Shane Keough, Jeana Keough’s son. Sarah quickly caused a stir earlier this season when she and Vicki got into it at Heather Dubrow’s bowling party.
Who is Sarah Winchester? For starters, she is heir to the to the Winchester Rifle family. She explained in an interview, “My great, great, grandfather Oliver Winchester is known for making and marketing the Winchester Repeating Rifle.” Regardless of her family’s fortune, this heiress isn’t just sitting on her butt and collecting a paycheck. She supports herself financially and has worked hard since the age of 15 — she even worked at McDonald’s. CLICK HERE to read why Terry Dubrow thinks Sarah Winchester is NOT an heiress.
Fans of the show didn’t see much of Sarah this season even though Bravo had originally intended on making her a housewife and casting her fiance, Kurt, as well. At the time, the couple had been going through some intense times and Sarah didn’t feel comfortable exposing that. Although Kurt encouraged her to join the show, she felt as though he wasn’t doing it for the right reasons. The couple eventually split.
Something you may not know about Sarah is that she’s a mommy to a 13 year-old boy! She opted against putting him on the show this season because she didn’t want him to be made fun of. Kids that age can be so cruel.
On tonight’s new episode, Sarah causes trouble once again when she eats the bow off of Heather’s cake before it has even been cut. Heather confronts her about it and an argument ensues which all of the ladies get in. Alexis tries to lighten the mood and suggests Sarah should apologize, however Sarah doesn’t want to because it’s “a f***ing bow.” She’s quite tipsy, and ends up being escorted out of the party.
Catch Sarah on part 1 of the Real Housewives of Orange County tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.
