Fans of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” are saying goodbye, and in some cases good riddance, to a few cast members and hello to a couple of new ladies. Who is leaving “The Real Housewives of Orange County” and who are the new ladies?

Vicki Gunvalson, the original “RHOOC” is back according to a March 11 a clip posted by Bravo. Also returning are Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow. But fans will not see Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and season eight newcomer Lydia McLaughlin. All three ladies have been given the ax by Bravo. But never fear, three new ladies have been added to “The Real Housewives of Orange County” cast.

Former beauty queen Lizzie Rovsek, who just happens to be Tamra’s neighbor, has two boys under the age of four and she and her husband Christian are thinking about having a third child. Lizzie and Heather may become best buddies.

The next new “RHOOC” cast member is Shannon Beador. Described as a “health nut” she keeps her home a “toxic-free zone” with a hospital grade filtration system. From the description of her life with her husband, these two may have some marital issues that will surface during Shannon’s first season as a “RHOOC”. During a clip on the Bravo website Shannon says to her husband, “I don’t believe that you love me.”

The third new lady to sign on for the ninth season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is Danielle Gregario, but only as a “friend of the housewives.” Gregario is the co-founder of Heels2Heal.OC which is a charitable organization designed to help underprivileged, critically-ill, and abused women and children.

If the previews are an indication, Heather Dubrow may be the “bad guy” and Vicki’s daughter Briana confronts her mother yet again over her relationship with Brooks Ayers.

Stay tuned, the ninth season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” premieres at 9 p.m. on Monday, April 14 on Bravo.
