Summer is (almost) officially here, and that can only mean one thing: a new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. That's right. Our favorite O.C. denizens will be back for Season 13 on Monday, July 16 at 9/8c — and this time around, pretty much everything has changed.
This season of RHOC picks up where last season left off after that shocking and emotional reconciliation between Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador. Of course, it's going to take some time for the ladies to truly get their friendship back on track, but what we see in the above trailer of the new season sure looks intriguing. Is that Vicki and Shannon we see locking lips?! And are Tamra and Shannon experiencing a rough patch of their own?
But the ladies will face lots of drama in their romantic relationships, too. We'll see newly single Shannon and Kelly Dodd navigate their post-divorce lives as they move into new homes and get back into the dating game. Vicki is still going strong with her boyfriend Steve Lodge, but she's ready to take their relationship to the next level. Tamra will face a health scare with her husband, Eddie Judge, who has been battling some issues with his heart in recent months.
As we get to see what's new with Vicki, Tamra, Shannon, and Kelly, we'll also meet a couple of new additions to the RHOC squad. Emily Simpson is an attorney originally from Ohio who's focused on mending her friendship with Tamra after the two had a falling out — and she promises that she's "not your typical Housewife." She'll be joined by fellow newcomer Gina Kirschenheiter who originally hails from Long Island, New York and is eager to make new friends after only living in the O.C. for three years.
But you know the O.C. Housewives always come to whoop it up too, and there will be no shortage of wild parties and vacations, including a girls' trip to Jamaica, along the way.
Whoever said 13 is an unlucky number clearly never met the RHOC ladies.
Check out the full trailer for this season, above. Then See what else is new with Tamra, below.
