The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17 reunion is coming soon, and Andy Cohen just gave an exciting hint about what’s to come. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

On September 7, we revealed the much-anticipated seating chart, which showed how the Season 17 cast — including Shannon Storms BeadorHeather DubrowGina KirschenheiterEmily SimpsonTamra Judge, and Jennifer Pedranti — will be arranged around Andy for the dramatic sit-down. 

In the middle is, of course, Andy, while directly to his left is Tamra, who’s followed by Shannon and then Emily. Sitting directly to Andy’s right is Heather, followed by Gina and Jennifer. 

Additionally, Season 17 friend Taylor Armstrong will also join the ladies at the reunion and will be seated next to Emily.

In addition to the seating chart, Andy just revealed some more enticing details about the reunion and it has to do with the ladies’ looks (which we will reveal in detail soon!).

Taking to his Instagram Stories while filming the reunion on September 7, Andy noted some interesting beauty choices from the Orange County women. 

“The women on my left all have super straight hair. The women on my right all have super curly hair — pageant hair,” he began the video, adding, “And there is someone here who has, like, 18 pounds of hair on top of their head. I’m not gonna say who.” 

If we can play OC sleuth for a minute… Considering our seating chart reveal, that means Tamra, Shannon, and Emily all opted for sleek, straight strands, while Heather, Gina, and Jennifer went for curls.

But the question remains: Who sported 18 pounds of hair for the occasion? 

While Andy was filming his Story, we heard Heather in the background saying that someone there looked like “a person from another franchise.” 

Considering his description of sky-high hair, Andy guessed Heather was referring to someone from The Real Housewives of New Jersey

“Beverly Hills is what I would say,” Heather responded, to which Andy quipped, “Interesting.” 

OK, now we’re really wondering what these ladies wore and how they did their glam. 

Stay tuned for more reunion teasers to come!

It’s not just Andy who’s been revealing some behind-the-scenes details about the RHOC Season 17 reunion. 

Taking to her Instagram Stories on August 28, Heather shared she had gotten the “best facial from [Candice Miele],” a celeb-loved Beverly Hills aesthetician. 

Meanwhile, Gina hit up Orange County’s Med Lounge, which offers Botox and other medical aesthetic services including Emsculpt. The California mom documented her visit via Instagram, sharing a video of herself lying on a padded chair as she underwent a noninvasive procedure. 

“This is my favorite way to work out,” Gina joked, adding that she was “getting ready to kick someone’s butt at the reunion.”
