There are going to be two new ladies on season 9 of "Thee Real Housewives of Orange County." One of them is named Shannon Beador and on Feb 13, Fashion & Style revealed some details so viewers can get to know the new cast member.

Shannon Beador and another new lady, Elizabeth Rovsek, will be replacing Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi. Lydia McLaughin will also not appear on the upcoming season. Shannon and Elizabeth will film season 9 with Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow.

WetPaint reported that 49-year-old Shannon grew up in La Jolla, Calif. before attending USC. She and her husband, David, have three children (one set of twins) and currently live in Newport Beach's Bonita Canyon.

Although David owns Beador Construction, which is reported to have an annual revenue of $13 million, she is a self-made millionaire. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she is valued at more than $20 million.

Sometimes when new cast members are added to a reality show, like "The Real Housewives" franchise, there can be personality clashes. This doesn't seem to be the case with Shannon. She has been seen hanging out with Tamra, who back in December announced the identity of her new co-star on Twitter along with posting photos of the two together at a baseball game. The tweet along with the photos were later deleted.

Are you looking forward to seeing how the cast of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" reacts to newcomer Shannon Beador?
