Bravo has just released a promo for the second half of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9, and it looks like we can expect a lot of drama, backstabbing, and… choking? The promo aired after Monday’s episode of RHOC and featured exciting sneak peeks at the upcoming episodes.

Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow will work on straightening out their friendship, while Terry Dubrow will fight with new castmate Shannon Beador’s husband, David. And Tamra will, at some point, sprint away from the cameras.

One extremely dramatic scene that sticks out of the promo, however, features Vicki Gunvalson and zero arguing. In the brief clip, Vicki is seen struggling for breath while others rush to her aid. Presumably, Vicki will make it out of this unharmed, but it’s certainly a shock to see a Housewife in a life-threatening situation.

Of course, the other scenes in the promo indicate that the Housewives will be doing more of what we love: traveling to exotic locales, drinking excessive amounts of wine, and bickering endlessly. Between the arguing, the glamour, and the tears, one thing’s for certain: this season looks like it’s going to be a doozy!

What do you think of the new castmates? Are you excited about the upcoming episodes? Sound off in the comments below!
