It’s that special time again Reality Tea readers!

We’re midway through the sixth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County so what better time to bring you some before/old school/blackmail photos of your favorite OC housewives. On the top left is none other than Tamra Sue Barney and on the right is a teenage Gretchen Rossi! (Feel free to click on either image to make it bigger).

Below are way more before they were famous photos including some shots of Alexis Bellino and hubby Jim Bellino before any plastic surgery, Peggy Tanous during her modeling days, a much younger Vicki Gunvalson and hubby Donn. Plus more awesome shots of Tamra & her wild 80s hairstyles, and more Gretchen!
