It seems that the casting for season nine of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" has been completed. After the departures of Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi and Lydia McLaughlin, fans were left wondering about their possible replacements. While there has been no official confirmation from Bravo, returning housewives Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow pretty much let the cat out of the bag when they tweeted a welcoming message to the newest housewife, Danielle Gregorio, on Tuesday, Dec. 31.
"Happy new year @HeatherDubrow @vgunvalson @SunKittenSwim @daniekgregorio 2014 is going to be our year! #bravo," Tamra tweeted first.
"Happy New Year! Here's to 2014! xo," responded Danielle, who has the twitter handle @daniekgregorio, to all the ladies.
Heather Dubrow in turn sent Danielle a string of excited faces.
Rumor Fix reported on Monday that the newest woman to join "The Real Housewives of Orange County" is Danielle Gregorio, the co-founder and president of Perfectly Planned Parties and Events and mother of three children.
Tamra Barney's NYE tweet also confirms the inclusion of Elizabeth Rovsek (@SunKittenSwim). The only housewife who was left out of the tweet was newcomer Shannon Beador, who has yet to join Twitter, something that will surely change very soon.
