The Real Housewives of Orange County (RHOC) are reportedly returning to Bravo for season 17 on March 1, 2023, according to the Bravo page, Dordina Deadly.
Heather Dubrow, Emily Simpson, Shannon Beador, and Gina Kirschenheiter are all returning for season 17.
They will be joined by Tamra Judge, who is returning to the show as a full-time Housewife. Newbie Jennifer Pedranti is also joining the cast as a full-time Housewife.
Taylor Armstrong will also make her debut on RHOC as a friend of the Housewives, while the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, will be featured as a guest. Vicki filmed multiple times this season, but it’s unclear if she will be an official friend of the Housewives.
As the ladies head into the season 17 premiere of RHOC, the cast is extremely divided. Recently the cast celebrated the holiday season with separate dinners leaving Jennifer and Taylor caught in the middle of both groups.
One dinner included Tamra, Shannon, Vicki, Jennifer, and Taylor having a girls’ night out at Gulfstream Newport Beach.
Tamra shared photos from the evening on Instagram along with the caption: “Girls’ night out @shannonbeador @vickigunvalson @jennifer.pedranti @taylorarmstrong #tresamigas #rhoc #blondes #happyholidays #merrychristmas #missingsomeofourcrew.”
Taylor, on the other hand, dubbed the group the “Whoop it up Dream Team,” channeling Yolanda Hadid’s infamous “dream team” on RHOBH.
Meanwhile, Taylor and Jennifer then went out to dinner with Heather, Emily, and Gina for another girls’ night out.
RHOC is set to return for season 17 in early 2023.
