'Real' Husband Charged with Felony DUI

9/19/2009 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matt Keough from "The Real Housewives of Orange County" is in a real deep mess, he was just charged with two felonies following his DUI arrest on August 15.

Keough -- who was busted in Coto de Caza, CA driving three times over the legal limit -- was charged with "one felony count DUI with a prior felony DUI conviction within 10 years" and one felony count driving with a BAC of .08 or higher.

According to the Orange County D.A., "Keough was also charged with sentencing enhancements for having a blood alcohol level of .20 percent or more and a prior 2005 felony DUI conviction."

Technically, the D.A. says Keough had a BAC of .30 "an hour after" his traffic stop.

Keough faces three years in state prison if convicted -- he'll be arraigned on November 2.

I know that this news makes it easy to come here and bash the RHOC, but I'd like to point out that this man is a total wreck and has made a mess of his life, and that has NOTHING to do with the RHOC.

While the RHOC can be easily slammed; Lord knows there are hundreds of easy shots to take at them, this particular issue has NOTHING to do with them. They did not cause it, Jeanna did not cause it, and it is a reaction to none of the RHOC stuff.

This story is about one man, and one man, only. This story is about one man who cannot take responsibility for himself and endangers all around him because of it. This story is about a failure of a man. Don't pass blame off to anyone but where it goes: straight on his shoulders. That is something drunks do on their own - pass the blame to someone else.

When TMZ does another story on RHOC, then we can do pages of slams and rants against what fake witches THEY are and how stupid the creators of that series must think their viewers are.

But on this story, keep this story about what it should be about: one man; one drunk man. This is about Matt Keough only, and his inability to control himself. This is not anyone's fault but his. No one, no wife, no kids, NO ONE caused him to drink; HE caused him to drink.

No excuses. That is what I encourage you all to do. Keep this story about the one whom is to blame here.

This story is about one thing only: Matt Keough, a drunk.

Its all lies. I was with Matt on the day in question and all we drank was a small glass of red wine with our lunch. But now that I think about it, we did drink a 5th of vodka in his car and washed in down with a 12 pack of Bud. But never-the-less, I beleive Matts erratic driving stems more from us bingeing 3 days on crack and meth more than the alcohol. Plus do you know how hard it is to roll a joint while driving.

You know, I don't care who he is, he's a drunk. This has got to stop! All the selfish drama and entitlement that seems to be everywhere is a real problem. Look, there should be no mercy for this guy. He has been busted for dui before! Is orange county waiting for a fine upstanding citizen to die before they take this seriously? This kind of guys gonna end up getting the city and possibly the state sued. They are liable of neglect and much much more if he ends up killing someone. Come on, will everyone stop drinking and driving? There are more important people in this world than this waste.People seem to care more about recycling than the dangers drunk driving causes. I think he has had "one too many"free passes.....why? Our country needs more respect for life.
