New stars replace Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Lydia McLaughlin on the Bravo show’s ninth season
Bravo officially announced the cast and the first trailer for its upcoming ninth season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” which debuts Monday, April 14 at 9 p.m.
New housewives Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovesk will join Season 9, replacing Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Lydia McLaughlin. Tamra Barney Judge, Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow will return for the new season, while Danielle Gregorio joins as a “Real Housewives” friend and not an official cast member.
Beador is a mother of three, who’s husband works in the contstruction business. Rovsek, a mother of two, is married to a man who works in real estate. She was Miss Kentucky USA in 2002 and owns a bathing suit line, Sun Kitten Swimwear by Lizzie.
Gregorio, in addition to being Heather’s friend, is a mother of three and is a co-founder of the charity Heels2Heal Orange County.
On the upcoming season, it appears the new gals will have to quickly figure out how things work with this group of women. Heather is on the outs at first, but later in the video there’s enough bitterness to go around.
