What Do The Real Housewives of Orange County Really Think About Season 16's New Housewives?

The Season of Getting is upon us. Bravo fans will be gifted juicy first looks at upcoming episodes, all-new After Shows, exciting show announcements, and more. Stay tuned!

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Shannon Storms Beador are dishing all the details on their first impressions of The Real Housewives of Orange County newbies ahead of the Season 16 premiere on Wednesday, December 1 at 9/8c.

From who they thought they "wouldn't get along with" to who they think is "well put together," the RHOC cast members opened about about the two newest additions to the group, Dr. Jen Armstrong and Noella Bergener, in a video shared exclusively with Bravo Insider during the Season of Getting.

"Sometimes those first impressions are amazing," Emily shared in the Bravo Insider video above, adding, "And sometimes there is a little bit of tension." Though Emily and Shannon each revealed that they both initially thought they "wouldn't get along" with newbie Noella, Emily said her actual first impression was quite the opposite.

"My first impression of her was really, really good," said Emily, while Shannon later added, "Noella is intelligent, witty, has zero fear, she is strong, and I’m really happy she is on the show." Gina chimed in with her first impression of Noella, which was nothing short of a great one, saying, in part, "I can’t get enough of her — she’s like a walking playground."

Gina and Shannon also both couldn't help but share their thoughts on Jen as well. Watch the clip above to hear more about what they had to say, and to get more juicy details on the newcomers.

BTW, in addition to the new faces, Heather Dubrow returns for Season 16. You can hear more about that from that cast here.
