We've known for quite some time that the new season of Real Housewives of Orange County will be quite different from last year, given all the cast departures. But it sounds like the show's newbies will be similar to the returning members in one major way.

Radar Online is reporting that the show's three rumored new ladies  Lizzie Rosvek, Shannon Beador, and Danielle Grigorio  are already mixing it up with returnees Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson, and Heather Dubrow. 

"Lizzie, Shannon, and Danielle are fitting in perfectly because they love to fight as much as the other women," according to a source. "Filming has started, and they’re already drumming up drama. It’s sort of silly and is definitely amped up just for the cameras, but it’s going to be really great to watch."

Apparently, the returning cast members are glad to have the newbies around. "The old ladies needed some new blood to mix things up," says the source. "They were sick of rehashing the same old fights based on lies and dumb misunderstandings. Now, they have new people to get to know to bring into their ‘real’ lives."

"Having new women is giving new energy to the conflicts and old friendships are being torn apart and new ‘alliances’ are being formed," adds the insider. "It’s really a mess." Yikes!

Are you excited to meet the new ladies, or will you miss Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and Lydia McLaughlin?
