A lot has happened to the original series of the franchise, so await more twists on The Real Housewives of Orange County season 7.

What to Expect on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7:

The ladies have a lot more issues to face this time, from mid-life crises to dating after divorce. Also, we’re pretty sure no one is enjoying Jeana’s comeback. We haven’t heard what she’ll do once the new season comes around, but it looks like they’ll all be competing for the spotlight again.

Gretchen Rossi gave out a few details about the upcoming installment. Below, you can watch her talking to Hollyscoop about The Real Housewives of Orange County season 7. She and Slade managed to work things out somehow, which will affect her return on the show.

On the video, she dishes about her latest endorsement for a hair product, in addition to her magazine appearances. More fame! She also talked about her relationship with Slade, which we might see more of on the series. Do we hear wedding bells coming? Do we see a full-blown family life in her future? We’ll find out soon enough.

Other than that, Vicki continues life with her husband. The tabloids have zeroed in on news about her boyfriends though, spanning updates about their arrests and other women. However, when The Real Housewives of Orange County season 7 rolls around, she’ll be planning a surprise for Don. Any idea what that could be? While that might turn things around for them, Tamra has her own marriage dilemmas to face.

There have also been rumors regarding casting for the show, including Peggy Tanous’ exit and the addition of Heather Dubrow. While Bravo has yet to make a press release about the official cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County season 7, Peggy has already posted on her Facebook page that she won’t be returning to the show.

“After months of negotiation and soul searching, I have declined their offer to return to the show,” Peggy wrote. “I just felt in my heart that being around the negative energy of certain cast members, being forced to have ‘dramatic’ confrontations and the time it would take me away from my family was just not a healthy path for me. I loved being a part of the Bravo family and do look forward to any new endeavors this may bring. I already have several opportunities to host upcoming TV shows that will empower woman, as well as my husband and I are about to launch our own wine. Who knows, perhaps if many of you want to continue to follow me and my family’s lives, then a new show can be created!” 

Meanwhile, Peggy’s rumored replacement has also been getting some attention from the media. Heather Dubrow is an actress who appeared on the CBS series That’s Life. She has four children with husband Terry Dubrow, who happens to be a plastic surgeon who is no stranger to reality TV thanks to his stint on The Swan and Bridalplasty.
