So what is it like to join one of the most successful of the Housewives franchises? Radar Online sat down with Shannon Beador to find out about her eccentric beliefs and the ups and downs of filming with veteran Vicki Gunvalson, Heather "Fancy Pants" Dubrow and feisty Tamra Barney.
TamraBarney Judge and Eddie are working hard at CUT Fitness and after 8 months in business are breaking even. Good for them! She compares the venture to having a newborn and then mentions that Eddie is five-years-younger than her and the deep sexy voice (debatable) he uses to teach classes gets all the ladies' revved up. It makes Tamra jealous – and insecure about her age. Tamra says she's doing everything she can to look younger. We can tell….
Our favorite California girls — no offense Beverly Hills! — are back!! The Real Housewives of Orange County season 9 is set to premiere on Monday, April 14 at 9pm/8 central and it is shaking up to be a season with a little something different.
With Bravo giving the ax to Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino, and Lydia McLaughlin leaving after only one season, there are some new girls on the block. Shannon Beador is a housewife and mother of three with her husband David. Kentucky native, Lizzie Rovsek is a former pageant girl and Miss Kentucky, married to Christian, mother of two boys and she owns her own swimwear company.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

Season 9 kicks off April 14th. Friendships are put to the test, says Bravo, when the "quirky yet fearless" Shannon Beador and "opinionated beauty queen" Lizzie Rovsek blast onto the scene with fresh attitudes and bold opinions. The line for the Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow pity party forms to the right, my friends. See ya on the left - I'm excited for new blood.
Meet Shannon and Lizzie, as well as a new friend of the housewivesDanielle Gregorio, and check out Real Housewives of Orange County's trailer and cast photos below.
Vicki is still with Brooks Ayers (although they reportedly officially broke up during filming) and he's still wreaking havoc with her family. Vicki also deals with daughter Briana, who is pregnant again, potentially moving to Oklahoma where husband Ryan is stationed. Tamra and Eddie juggle expanding their business and potentially expanding their family (via adoption). And custody drama.
Perhaps this isn't all Tamra's fault, however, because Danielle joined the show with the sole intent to cause major drama and concrete her place on the show! “Tamra believes that Danielle is a fame whore,” a source explains. Which, hello! – takes one to know one.
“Lizzie [Rosvek], Shannon[Beador] and Danielle [Grigorio] are fitting in perfectly because they love to fight as much as the other women,” an insider shares with Radar Online.
Unfortunately the insider warns that it's definitely manufactured drama; meaning the new ladies already know how to snare some screen time! "It’s sort of silly and is definitely amped up just for the cameras, but it’s going to be really great to watch.” Even though this season is a cesspool of drama the insider insists, "The fights are FUN!"
