Real Housewives of Orange County

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 — Girls Gone Country! (PHOTOS)

If you’ve been counting down the days until The Real Housewives of Orange County will grace your television screen again, your wait will soon be up. Bravo has released a sneak peek at Season 9 — featuring three new women — and announced that the OG show of the hit franchise will make its grand return on April 14! As Vicki Gunvalson would say, “Woo hoo!”

Three of your favorite California girls will be making the return — Vicki, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow — since Lydia McLaughlin decided to leave the show and Gretchen Rossi got fired alongside Alexis Bellino. Taking their place will be Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek, with Danielle Gregorio joining as a friend of the Housewives.

We’ve still got a few weeks of waiting, but luckily Bravo has put up some sneak peek photos from the season — and we must say that we’re surprised that these classy ladies have gone country! But don’t you worry, there’s still plenty of wine involved.

The Real Housewives of Orange County returns on Monday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
