The Real Housewives of Orange County
The Real Housewives of Orange County is the original Real Housewives (originally, it was going to be released under the title “The Real Housewives” without the Orange County) series. Set in Orange County, CA, it debuted on March 21, 2006. The success if RHOC would pave the way for 6 other Real Housewives series, as well as a number of spin offs of the RH franchise.
The longest running show of the franchise, it is currently in its 9th season. The RHOC stars include Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi, Lydia Mclaughlin, Heather Dubrow, Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson. Of the original housewives, only Gunvalson continues to be on the show. Aside from Gunvalson, Tamra Judge has been on the show the longest (starting with season 3).
The Housewives of Orange County have a diverse set of characteristics. Ranging from empty nesters and stay-at-home moms, to business owners and music artists (Jo De La Rosa released an album in 2008 titled “Unscripted.”), the plight of the characters in the show are unique in that the show began before the 2008 recession and takes us through their lives during this financially difficult period.
