'Real Housewives Orange County' new castmembers: Elizabeth Rovsek joins RHOOC

See also

"Real Housewives of Orange County" is welcoming new castmembers for next season -- and another new castmember has been revealed. On Dec. 21, E! News reported that Elizabeth Rovsek will join the cast for season 9. "Lizzie" is a model, fashion designer, and has competed in pageants. In 2002, Lizzie was crowned "Miss Kentucky."

Lizzie is set to join the other "Housewives" that signed on to do season 9. They include Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow. As previously reported, Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi were not asked back to the show by producers. Some say that they weren't popular and that's why they were cut.

"Real Housewives of Orange County" new castmembers also include Shannon Beador. A pal of Tamra, it was Barney who actually made the "official" announcement. "Excited to be going to the game tomorrow with Shannon & David (new housewife) can't wait to see you… (sic)," Tamra tweeted earlier in December.

Heather McDonald is a rumored new "Housewife." She has reportedly been seen out with the OC women but Bravo has not confirmed that she has a spot on the show. You may recognize McDonald from her role on "Chelsea Lately."

"Real Housewives of Orange County" new castmembers seem to be getting along well with the existing "Housewives," but you know how that tends to go. Will you miss Alexis and/or Gretchen?
