New season, new drama, new housewives! With the exits of Season 8 regulars Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi, and Lydia McLaughlin, it’s time for some new blood, and Us Weekly reports that Elizabeth “Lizzie” Rovsek and Shannon Beador are just the women for the job.

According to the site, Lizzie and Shannon will join O.G. OC Housewife Vicki Gunvalson and fellow veterans Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow for Season 9. There’s no word yet on whether that’s it for cast updates, or if Lydia will also be getting a replacement. However, there have been rumors about Chelsea Lately regular Heather McDonald joining the cast, though that’s pure speculation at this point.

Bravo has yet to confirm the casting announcement, but it makes perfect sense to us. The announcement of Shannon Beador especially isn’t much of a surprise — Tamra Barney basically confirmed it on Twitter weeks ago. Lizzie was a little more under our radar, though she did recently show up on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Joyce Giraud’s social media feeds on December 10. We love a good crossover!

The lovely ladies should fit in pretty well. Lizzie’s a former model and beauty queen turned designer, while Shannon’s hubby, David, is big in real estate. They were born to be Housewives!
