First Look at 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 9

The ladies return April 14 at 9p ET/PT.

Woo-hoo!

The first ladies of Southern California are returning for another juicy season this spring when Real Housewives of Orange County premieres April 14 at 9p ET/PT. And we've got a first look at all the parties, vacations, fights, tears, and drama!

This season, long term friendships are put to the ultimate test when Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney Judge, and Heather Dubrow are joined by two new ladies (more on them later).

In the clip, the 'Wives take a glamorous vacation to Bali, where Tamra has a hilarious run-in with an elephant. The normally head-strong Heather has an emotional break down at a dinner party. Vicki has a scary incident when she chokes. And Tamra and Heather come to blows when Tamra accuses Heather of being condescending.

There isn't just drama among the 'Wives. Vicki's relationship with her daughter Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson is also put to the test over her ties to Brooks Ayers, who had a confrontational sit-down with Briana at last year's reunion. And are newlyweds Tamra and Eddie Judge hoping to expand their family? You'll have to tune in to find out.
