Welcome to the OC, b–ch!
Season 15 newbie Elizabeth Vargas is reportedly “struggling” to get along with the Real Housewives of Orange County cast and has found the transition from nobody to living her life in front of the Bravo cameras “challenging.”
“Elizabeth Vargas is really feisty. She was brought into the group by Kelly [Dodd], and they have fun together. It’s been challenging for her to connect with a lot of the other women, though,” an RHOC insider dished to HollywoodLife. “They didn’t know her before, and she hasn’t exactly been fitting in very easily. She’s pretty vocal and seems to still be getting her groove, but she hasn’t started off on the best of footing with the other women.”
The newbie is also reportedly trying to “pick fights” with her co-stars.
“The women are struggling to become friends with her. They seem open though to getting to know her better, but they think she’s trying to hard to start drama and issues when they’re not there,” the source continues. “Kelly really has her back, though, and has been helping her get into the groove of it all. She’s unnecessarily picking fights with people to cause drama.”
In March, the ladies of the OC paused filming for season 15 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. They recently resumed filming and have gone a few local girl’s trips; however, filming may be halted once again following Shannon Beador’s Coronavirus diagnosis.
The season 15 cast of RHOC includes returning Housewives Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter along with newbie Elizabeth.
The Real Housewives of Orange County is expected to return to Bravo for season 15 in late 2020 or early 2021.
