After a five-year hiatus, Heather Dubrow is making her comeback, joined by Shannon Storms Beador, Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter. And fans will also get to meet two new Housewives: Noella Bergener and Dr. Jen Armstrong. Recently, Jen gave fans a deeper look into her background and life, as well as opened up about her fellow RHOC cast members, in a video shared exclusively with Bravo Insider during the Season of Getting.
"I was born and raised in Laguna Beach, California so I’ve been here my whole life," said the Orange County native in the Bravo Insider video, above. The aesthetic medicine physician, who runs her own practice, went on to talk about everything from her professional life to how most people tend to perceive her, adding, "I’ve actually asked people to describe me just to see how people perceive me and, across the board, they’ve all said intense."
As for her thoughts on her fellow 'Wives, Jen had this to say: "The women are extraordinary. It’s been wonderful getting to know everybody."
She also revealed what she says is "a misconception" about her and sets the record straight in the above clip. Watch the video, above, to hear more about what Jen had to say, and to get more juicy details on the newcomer.
In addition to sharing more about herself in the Bravo Insider exclusive interview above, the mother of three also recently took to Instagram to share a glimpse into her family life with a photo of her husband, Ryne, holding their adorable dog, Mr. Puppers, during a Hawaiian vacation.
She expressed her gratitude in the caption of her November 27 post, writing, "Husband, family, Hawaii, puppy. Could it get any better? IMMENSELY thankful."
Looking for more details on Jen? Well, according to her BravoTV.com profile, "After meeting Gina and Emily last year, aesthetic MD, Dr. Jen Armstrong immediately integrates into the group by performing cosmetic procedures on the ladies. Emotionally guarded at first, Jen develops a quick bond with Heather but has trouble making a real connection with Noella. Married to her husband Ryne, she is a proud mother to three children. She embodies the alpha female persona as she runs her own practice, provides for her family and helps her mom prepare for a move to the OC. Dr. Jen has always been an overachiever and is now launching a division of her practice that specializes in a unique magnetic brain treatment."
