Real Housewives of Orange County is undergoing quite the cast transformation – finally! With Lydia McLaughlin quitting to focus on her own projects plus Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi being fired three spots opened up for potential new ladies.
We already reported that one new Housewife is Shannon Beador, she's been spotted filming with both Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson. She is rumored to be Heather McDonald's sister. The other two newcomers are Elizabeth Rosvek and Danielle Gregorio.
Tamra confirmed that both ladies are in some capacity joining the cast when she included them all in a tweet. Shannon, who doesn't have a twitter account (yet!) wasn't included.
So who are the new ladies?

Elizabeth is a former pageant girl (Miss Kentucky 2002) who now owns Sun Kitten Swimwear, a swimsuit company. She married her husband Christian, an OC real estate developer in 2009, and they have two sons: Preston and Kingston. You can find more about her background in the society pages. You can also "meet" Elizabeth on her Facebook and twitter pages. Photos below!
Danielle the other newbie is a party planner and mother of three. She's also a philanthropist behind Heels 2 Heal, an organization dedicated to positive life changes. She has partnered with Jimmy Choo several times to host their annual fundraising event according to the website's description.
All Things Real Housewives reports that Danielle is married and a mother of three. “She [Danielle] started filming around Thanksgiving." Apparently Bravo was going to only have two new Housewives because "nobody wanted to join the show," the source claims. "Orange County is one of the lowest paying in the franchise and people with real money aren’t interested in the show’s antics and drama.” They then decided to add Elizabeth.
Photos of Elizabeth, Danielle, and Shannon are below!
