They’re back! The original housewives of bravo are returning for their 5th season tonight.
The Real Housewives of Orange County have pretty much been in the headlines for the past few months. Whether it be Gretchen Rossi’s leaked photos, Lynne Curtin’seviction saga, or Vicki Gunvalson’strashy bar behavior, It’s safe to say these six women will be keeping us entertained for weeks to come.
The DailyBeast caught up with the OC Housewives to discuss their new season, and changes in their lives. Vicki claims the show has negatively affected her insurance business, leading her to almost not return for the 5th season. “I almost lost a very large client of mine—a $2 million client—because he Googled me and said he didn’t like what he was seeing on the TV show,” Gunvalson, 47, told The Daily Beast.
Bravo promises the upcoming season will address the financial woes of some of the ladies, including that of Jeana Keough, who’s divorce and a down real-estate market prompted her to quit the show to focus on work full-time. She will be leaving the show after 3 episodes. Jeana however reveals other reasons for leaving the show, “I just didn’t feel appreciated by the girls or the network,” she said.
Tamra Barney, 42, will be one of the housewives dealing with financial woes. Her home is currently listed as a short sale, and she has had to let both a nanny and a maid go to save cash. This season will also deal with Tamra doing a lot of arguing with her husband Simon Barney. “He did not want to come back this season, and I did,” she said. “He’s very private and conservative. We’re having a lot of financial problems, and he just didn’t want to expose that.”
Tonight’s episode will show Gretchen reflecting on the death of her deceased fiance, and confronting Tamra about the things Tamra said about her last season. It will also feature Vicki skydiving, and Lynn contemplating having a facelift.

Tell Us – Are You Excited For The New Season of The OC Housewives?
Evicted Orange County housewife, Lynne Curtin, is now being accused of looting. Evidently Lynne was not only renting her home, but also some of the furniture in it. Lynne and her family moved out of their evicted home days ago.
The actual homeowner/landlord claims the Curtins stole a bookcase, credenza, armoire and a glass shelf — worth around $5,000 — and reported the alleged thievery to Laguna Beach Police Department Friday.
The homeowner also alleges the home’s carpet was trashed, there were holes in the walls and the travertine tub was damaged.
In a statement to TMZ, the homeowner says, “I am blown away that grown people can behave this way. They have daughters, how can they seriously think they are setting an example.”
TMZ is also reporting that this isn’t the first time the Real Housewives of Orange County star and her family have been evicted. Documents were dug up from 2003 that shows the Curtins were kicked out of a home for owing that homeowner: $9,104, an amount they allegedly never paid.
The eviction saga of The Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin has finally ended, as she moved out of her Arch Beach Heights home Wednesday, after receiving another eviction notice on Tuesday.
At first, Lynne refused to move, forcing the homeowner to file an eviction notice with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday. Several neighbors confirmed seeing Lynne and other family members move belongings from their home to a moving van. One of the neighbors also said this isn’t the first time the family have been evicted.
We initially reported that Lynne and her husband, Frank, never paid their security deposit, owing over $12,000 to the homeowner.
“Instead of paying the rent, security deposit and commission to their Realtor, Lynne got a facelift and her daughter got a nose job,” a source told the OCRegister.
The OCRegister also reports the Orange County housewives have reportedly earned $120,000 or more per seasons, however Lynne’s finances from the show are unknown.
Though all their belongings were moved, the garage door was left open, revealing storage and camera equipment owned by Evolution Media, the company filming the show for Bravo.
The latest in the Lynne Curtin eviction soap opera is news that she is refusing to leave her evicted home.
TMZ is reporting that the Real Housewives of Orange County star is refusing to leave, forcing her landlord to file legal papers on Tuesday with the OC Sheriff’s Department. This means if the Curtin family still refuses to leave, police will have to physically drag them out.
According to TMZ, the 51-year-old mother who actually owns Lynne’s rented home, is forced to sleep on her 70-year-old parents’ couch, adding, “It’s humiliating to live in my old parents house because some O.C. housewife cant pay the rent.”
Lynne and her husband, Frank, are said to owe over $12,000.
