Real Housewives Of Orange County will premiere on Bravo June 10th, but there’s already major drama about whether or not new cast member Katie Hamilton will even appear this season! And with word that her MLB husband Josh Hamilton filed for divorce 2 months ago, things are getting even trickier!
Katie, together with Meghan Edmonds, are the new ladies slated to join RHOC for season 10, both boasting an impressive MLB marriages. Unfortunately, Katie’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Josh, an Anaheim Angels outfielder who has a long history of substance abuse issues, suffered a relapse during filming, reportedly over marital problems and the intrusion of reality TV cameras. This prompted rumors that Katie had pulled out of the show to focus on family issues and avoid having the drama play-out for Bravo cameras.
“I came in not knowing anyone,” said Heather. “I came from the scripted world, and I was very uncomfortable doing reality. When I first started the show, I was very buttoned-up and very reserved. It’s really been an evolution for me in the group and on the show.”
Heather cited family responsibilities and feeling isolated for her “anger” last season. “I was very tired,” she said, “and I didn’t see the other girls a lot. I felt very isolated. I was really angry last year. I wasn’t sure why. I think that’s why.”
Dr. Terry Dubrow has come a long way since being a Househusband! Along with the second season of his hit plastic surgery show Botched premiere next week, which Terry describes as even more intense than last season, he is debuting a new skin care line in the hopes that fewer people will resort to plastic surgery for anti-aging measures.
Terry, who co-stars with another former Mr. Housewife, Dr. Paul Nassif, shares that for season 2 the doctors had an overwhelming amount of applicants needing reconstructive plastic surgery.
“Last season we only had 500 or 600 applicants for surgery. This time we had 6,000,” says Terry. Yowzers – there are a lot of people getting bad work out there!
Brooks has been battling Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma, since the fall of 2013. Brooks now faces three options: more aggressive chemo (3-4 times a week), a stem cell transplant, or a more holistic approach – recommended by fellow OC Housewife Shannon Beador – which would eschew chemo altogether.
Vicki’s “work, work, work!” anthem has turned her Coto Insurance & Financial Services, Inc. into an extremely lucrative enterprise and a pillar of the Orange County business community. Vicki shared that she was given the award “based on my success in the insurance industry,” (not her illustrious Vicki’s Vodka venture?!) and gushed, “Hard work does pay off.”
Brooks shared, “It’s been a challenging couple of months for Vicki and myself for sure, but we’re good. One of the words I use to describe Vicki is ‘intense.’ She’s intense in every aspect of her life in whatever she’s doing. Having fun, whooping it up, or working, in a relationship, or whatever, she’s intense — and that’s a good thing.”
Katie Hamilton is supposed to be one of the two new Real Housewives Of Orange County stars, but amid news that her MLB player husband Josh Hamilton has relapsed in his battle with cocaine addiction, Katie may have quit the show!
Last week ESPN confirmed that Josh, an outfielder for the Angels, was meeting with MLB baseball officials for a “disciplinary issue.” Josh had surgery in February and was recovering at a friend’s house possibly because he was having issues with Katie, which led to a relapse “at least involving cocaine.”
Josh’s wife Katie has been filming for RHOC, and according to sources “fitting in well” with the group, leaving producers thrilled with her addition to the cast. She joined alongside another MLB wife Meghan Edmonds, both of whom know Heather Dubrow. But did the intrusion of reality TV place strain on Josh and Katie’s 10-year-marriage?
