Tamra Barney and Peggy Tanous, OC Housewives, 'Roofied' at NYC Bar

Bad things happen when you leave the OC mansions.

While at a bar in the Big Apple, Real Housewives Tamra Barney and new gal Peggy Tanous were "roofied"--as in given the drug Rohypnol. Their New York franchise co-star Ramona Singer, who was with the 'wives, described what happened to

"So many fans came over and said, 'We love you guys.' A middle-aged gentleman sat next to Tamra and Peggy and said, 'I have a special drink for you two ladies.' Obviously, he was watching them and decided to buy them drinks. Tamra drank only part of her drink, but Peggy drank all of it, poor thing. We all left as they finished their drinks, and they got back to their hotel 20 minutes later and felt the effects. Thankfully, Vicki [Gunvalson] was there because they almost had to go to the hospital. I think it's a lesson for everyone to learn--never take a drink from a stranger. Thank God it wasn't more serious."

On Sunday, Barney wrote on her Facebook page: "I will talk more tomorrow about being roofied. . . . It was horrible, from blacking out to violently being ill. It has taken three days to feel normal again." She is reportedly pursing the case. "My attorney is calling to see if there is a surveillance video," she says.
