rhoc cast orange county

Bravo has released the new Real Housewives of Orange County trailer and cast photos/bios for our viewing pleasure. 

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 housewives Danielle Gregorio, and check out Real Housewives of Orange County's trailer and cast photos below.  


Shannon Beador

Shannon Beader

Shannon adheres to a holistic lifestyle – her house is a toxic free zone with a hospital grade air filtration system and no wi-fi.  Her three daughters, Sophie, 12, and twins Stella and Adeline, 9, have never eaten cheddar cheese because of the orange dyes. 

Shannon spends her free time with her energy specialist and a Feng Shui advisor trying to rid herself of any built up anger and resentment. (HAHAHA – this should be a requirement for all reality TV stars!) Her 13-year marriage has hit a rough patch as she and her husband David struggle to find balance between work, the kids, and each other.  

Danielle Gregorio

Danielle Gregori

Controversial new friend of the housewives Danielle has two kids, ages seven and five, with her husband Joe, who she has known since childhood, and a 15-year-old son from a previous relationship. She is a co-founding member of the charity Heels2Heal-OC, helping underprivileged, critically-ill, abused women and children. 

Danielle holds her opinions close to her vest, but when she speaks out, she's brash and brutally honest.


Lizzie Rovsek

Lizzie, who is Tamra's neighbor, brings a crazy combo of charm, sex appeal, and intelligence to Orange County. She's a former Miss Kentucky.

Lizzie is a busy woman, raising two boys under the age of four while juggling her husband, Christian, and her career as the owner and designer of Sun Kitten Swimwear. Lizzie is from a large family and is contemplating having a third child, hopefully a girl, but is torn between her career aspirations – beauty pageant judge and aspiring actor – and growing her family.

Heather Dubrow

Heather, blessing us with her presence since season 7, is a "working" actress and wife to prominent Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Terry Dubrow. Heather and Terry have four children, twins Nicholas and Maximillia, 10, Katarina, 7, and Collette, 3. They recently sold their home and are currently living in a rental house while their new "bigger and better" dream house is built. 

Heather's acting career is moving forward (#RIPMalibuCountry) – a recent guest appearance on Hawaii Five-O has kept her busy as she designs their new home. Terry and Heather continue to work hard on juggling their career ambitions while maintaining a happy, healthy and balanced family life.

tamra barney

Tamra Barney

Tamra joined the cast in season three. The mother of four married "the love of her life" Eddie Judge and opened "a boutique workout facility" CUT Fitness last summer.  Tamra and Eddie are so busy with CUT's day-to-day operations that they haven't had time for a honeymoon. 

Talking about the possibility of having another baby, either through adoption or surrogacy, Tamra wonders how they will be able to handle the demands of their new business with a new addition to the family.

Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki, the "OG of the OC", roamed Orange County with the dinosaurs has been on RHOC since season 1. Her daughter, Briana, and her family, hubby Ryan and son Troy, recently moved our of her house and into a nearby condo. Ryan has been told by the Marines that he will likely be stationed in Oklahoma – and now Vicki is dealing with the possibility that Briana, who is pregnant again, and her family will have to move far away. 

In other news, Vicki and Brooks Ayers have both gone to counselors and are working on their relationship.  Vicki has forgiven Brooks – but the relationship continues to be a source of conflict between her and Brianna.
