When one version of “The Real Housewives” franchise is over, another rises up to take its place. This is just the strange way of the world when it comes to “The Real Housewives of Orange County” Monday night. The show will premiere on the night that was previously occupied by the “Beverly Hills” version of the show.
There are some significant changes that you are going to get here almost straight out of the gate when it comes to the cast. Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi, and Lydia McLaughlin are all gone from the cast, and have been replaced with Danielle Gregorio, Shannon Beador, and Lizzie Rovsek. These are faces that you will get to know overtime, but based on the synopsis below, the first episode is going to be mostly about the anchors you are already familiar with:
“In the season opener, Vicki finds her life in turmoil once again, as her divorce from Donn is finalized and she struggles to move forward with Brooks after his controversial clash with Briana at last season’s reunion. Newcomer Shannon gives Heather a peek into her quirky lifestyle choices. Heather invites party girls Vicki and Tamra for a girls-only weekend trip to Honolulu following her guest role on ‘Hawaii Five-O,’ but tensions arise when the dynamic duo are met with resistance when they try to get Heather to lose the fancy pants.”
We’ve missed this version of the show, mostly because we have long found it to be one of the silliest of the franchise. We don’t care so much for watching the personal crises and we really don’t care for when things can violent or verbally abusive. Some of the funniest moments in history have happened in Orange County, and while there are still occasions where you want to remind these women that sometimes they are fighting over petty things, these are balanced out with ones you want to watch multiple times on your DVR.
