BRAVO MEDIA'S "THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY" RETURNS FOR A JUICY NINTH SEASON PREMIERING MONDAY, APRIL 14 AT 9PM ET/PT

New Housewives Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek Join Returning Favorites Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow

NEW YORK - March 11, 2014 - Bravo Media's original series that started the hit franchise, "The Real Housewives of Orange County" returns for juicy season nine on Monday, April 14 at 9:00pm ET/PT. This season, long term friendships are put to the ultimate test as veteran Housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow are joined by two new ladies -- the quirky yet fearless Shannon Beador and the opinionated former beauty queen Lizzie Rovsek. The new housewives come in strong to shake up the status quo with their fresh attitudes and bold opinions. A new friend of the housewives, Danielle Gregorio, also finds herself caught up in the drama going down behind the gates of SoCal's wealthiest community.

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" cast includes:

Vicki Gunvalson

The "OG of the OC," Vicki Gunvalson has appeared on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" since season one. Born and raised in the Chicago area, Vicki currently lives in the gated community of Coto de Caza. Recently, her daughter, Briana, son-in-law Ryan, and grandson, Troy moved out of her house and into a nearby condo. Briana is happily pregnant again and after a recent tour in Afghanistan, Ryan has been told by the Marines that he will likely be stationed at a base in Oklahoma. Vicki is forced to deal with the very real possibility that Briana and her family will have to move far away. Meanwhile, Vicki and Brooks have both gone to counselors and are working on their relationship. Although Vicki has forgiven Brooks for his actions over the past year, their relationship continues to be a source of conflict between her and Brianna.

Tamra Judge

Tamra Judge, formerly Tamra Barney, is a Southern California native from Glendora, CA, who joined the cast in season three. She has four children, 27-year-old Ryan, and three children with her ex-husband. Since getting married to the love of her life, Eddie Judge, last summer, the two spend most of their time together running their boutique workout facility, CUT Fitness, which opened last summer. The two are so busy with its day-to-day operations that they haven't had time for a honeymoon. Talking about the possibility of having another baby, either through adoption or surrogacy, Tamra wonders how they will be able to handle the demands of their new business with a new addition to the family.

Heather Dubrow

Heather Dubrow is a working actress and stay-at-home mother of four who joined the cast in season seven. Married to prominent Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Terry Dubrow, they have four children, 10-year-old twins Nicholas and Maximillia, 7-year-old Katarina, and 3-year-old, Collette. Heather and Terry recently sold their home and are living in a rental house for two years while their new bigger and better dream house is built. Heather's acting career is moving forward and a recent guest appearance on "Hawaii Five-O" has kept her busy as she designs their new home. She and Terry continue to work hard on juggling their career ambitions while maintaining a happy, healthy and balanced family life.

Shannon Beador

Born and raised in Southern California, Shannon Beador joins the cast this season bringing her unflinching honesty and unconventional ways. She adheres to a holistic lifestyle, keeping her house a toxic free zone with a hospital grade air filtration system and no wi-fi. Her three daughters, 12-year-old Sophie and 9-year-old twins, Stella and Adeline have never eaten cheddar cheese because of the orange dyes. Shannon spends her free time with her energy specialist and a Feng Shui advisor trying to rid herself of any built up anger and resentment. Her 13-year marriage has recently hit a rough patch as she and her husband David struggle to find balance between work, the kids and each other.

Lizzie Rovsek

Living blocks away from Tamra in Ladera Ranch, Lizzie Rovsek brings her captivating combination of charm, sex appeal and intelligence to Orange County. A former Miss Kentucky, Lizzie is a beauty pageant judge and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting. Now she is busy raising two boys under the age of four while juggling her husband, Christian, and her career as the owner and designer of Sun Kitten Swimwear. Lizzie is from a large family and is contemplating having a third child, hopefully a girl, but is torn between her career aspirations and growing her family.

Danielle Gregorio - Friend of the Housewives

The newest friend of the housewives, Danielle Gregorio, moved to Orange County 10 years ago and lives in Villa Park. She has two kids, ages 7 and 5, with her husband Joe, who she has known since childhood, and a 15-year-old son from a previous relationship. She is a co-founding member of the charity Heels2Heal-OC, helping underprivileged, critically-ill, abused women and children. Danielle holds her opinions close to her vest, but when she speaks out, she's brash and brutally honest.

Season eight of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" ended with a season high among all key demos, delivering 3.5 million total viewers and 2.3 million adults 18-49. Source: Nielsen Media Research, L7 data.

Season nine of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" is produced by Evolution Media for Bravo, with Douglas Ross, Gregory Stewart and Alex Baskin, along with Scott Dunlop and Christopher Cullen serving as executive producers.
