Ever since we learned that Lizzie Rovsek had joined The Real Housewives of Orange County, we’ve been excited to see this beauty queen in action. Now that we’re three episodes into Season 9, we’ve only been introduced to newbie Shannon Beador and caught up with our veteran housewives — but that’s about to change!

In the promo for next week’s episode, drama is in the air at the ugly sweater party. Not only does Tamra Barney approach hubby Eddie Judge about wanting another baby, but Vicki Gunvalson brings on-again, off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers around the women for the first time in a long while — mostly because they don’t approve of him (at least at the time).

But don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom! “I’m here!” Lizzie appropriately exclaims. Heather Dubrow takes immediate notice of her fellow brunette bombshell, noting that she has “all of this going on.”

Want to know how we are certain we’ll like Lizzie? Homegirl takes a huge tumble in front of everyone and recovers gracefully. Elsewhere, we see Shannon take a swig of vodka before getting intimate with her husband. These newbies sure know how to entertain!

Watch this sneak peek from Season 9, Episode 4 of the Real Housewives of Orange County, then make sure to tune in when it airs on Monday, May 5 at 9 p.m.!
