Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9: Cast Promo Pics Revealed!

When the Real Housewives of Orange County returns on Monday, April 14, we’ll be reunited with some very familiar faces... along with some unfamiliar ones, as well.

Joining Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra (Barney) Judge, and Heather Dubrow are two full-time castmates: swimsuit designer Lizzie Rovsek and stay-at-home mom Shannon Beador. Interior designer and philanthropist Danielle Gregorio will be joining the cast as a “Friend of the Housewives.”

Unfortunately, welcoming new faces means saying goodbye to a few of the old ones. As previously reported, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino were allegedly fired from the show, while Lydia McLaughlin decided to bow out after only appearing on a single season.

While we’re sad to see these ladies go, the promo for the upcoming season looks more dramatic than ever! Season 9 will largely focus on Vicki’s troubled relationship with Brooks, while Tamra explores the possibility of having a baby with Eddie. Meanwhile, now that Alexis is out of the picture, it seems that Heather has become the Housewife that all the other ladies are having problems with.
