Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: An Unexpected Secret

Are you guys ready for Real Housewives of Orange County? They filmed this season during a pandemic, y’all! They came to play and not even Kelly Dodd’s idiotic coronavirus comments could derail this train. So let’s dive in and see what these over-ripe oranges are up to.

We open up with a really ominous beach scene because what is more ominous than Newport Beach. Newport Beach, new cast members, new beginnings, new hips for Emily Simpson. New new new. Everything that you want to see in a fresh season of Real Housewives. And not a Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Judge in sight.

Real Housewives Of Orange County RHOC Gina Kirschenheiter

Get ready for Real Housewives of Orange County! The Season 15 trailer dropped this morning and there’s a lot of Shannon Beador shrieking, Kelly Dodd yelling, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke crying. Just like last season. Only now we’re not seeing Tamra BarneyJudge flash her enhancements or hearing Vicki Gunvalson woo-hoo. I get that you’ll come for me in the comments, but I kind of missed seeing them in the trailer.

We also know that Emily Simpson is back. She was crying about something in the trailer – I’m assuming her small husband. We also got our first glimpse of new RHOC housewife Elizabeth Lyn Vargas. I laughed out loud because I was picturing Elizabeth Vargas the former 20/20 news anchor this whole time. Yeah, they’re not the same. Anyways, it’s the same old stuff, but it does look like Gina Kirschenheiter has a surprise in store for us this season.

Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County is featuring some major changes. The cast was filming during the Covid-19 crises, and it shows how the RHOC ladies grappled with the stress.

This is also the first season without “OG” cast members Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. They walked away when they weren’t offered full-time positions for Season 15. But don’t worry, Tamra and Vicki will never stop commenting on RHOC.

Real Housewives Of Orange County RHOC Gina Kirschenheiter

Gina Kirschenheiter is living her best life right now, and after splitting from her ex, she totally deserves it. Her former husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, cheated on the Real Housewives of Orange County star. In June of 2019, Matt was charged with felony domestic violence after he allegedly assaulted Gina.

Now Gina has announced that she is returning to RHOC for her third season as a full-time Housewife. Not only that, but she has a new man in her lifeTravis Mullen. And the couple has taken a giant leap forward in their relationship.

Finally, some good news for Gina Kirschenheiter! No, she did not get a new stylist. Or a new makeup artist. Or a new hairdresser. She is in a new relationship! This is something that her Real Housewives of Orange County costar Tamra Judge recently revealed, even though it’s none of her business and Gina is in the middle of a nasty divorce and custody battle right now.

Gina’s new man is Travis Mullen. Even though their relationship is new, she is open to getting remarried for a storyline. The ink on her divorce papers isn’t even dry. She and Matt Kirschenheiter are still husband and wife until December. But, she does have a restraining order against him, so it’s not as if they’re hanging out on the reg.
