Real Housewives of Orange County: Who Is Danielle Gregorio?

Real Housewives of Orange County is changing around its cast dramatically for its upcoming Season 9, which premieres on April 14. One new cast member is Danielle Gregorio — but what do we know about her?

Sadly, three ladies are leaving the cast for the new season: Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and Lydia McLaughlin. The show is adding two new cast members, Lizzie Rovsek and Shannon Beador, along with Danielle.

Danielle — who will be a friend of the Housewives — is a party planner who lives in Irvine, CA, with husband Joe and their three children. The family's PR team recently issued a statement to debunk rumors that Joe is gay.

So who will the gorgeous Danielle be getting along with on the show, and who will she be bickering with? Well, we've heard that she's pals with Heather Dubrow but that she isn't getting along with Tamra Barney.

Danielle is 33 years old, making her the youngest current cast member. Former cast member Lydia turned 33 herself in March 2014. We can't wait to learn more about Danielle and her family!

Are you looking forward to meeting Danielle on the show? And do you think she'll create a rift between Heather and Tamra?
