Set to return on February 7, 2012, the Bravo reality show recruits former actress Heather Dubrow to join Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino.
"The Real Housewives of Orange County" will welcome a new housewife when it returns for a seventh season on Tuesday, February 7 at 9/8c on Bravo. Announcing the premiere date, the network also introduces the new addition, Heather Dubrow, who will join returning cast members Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino.
Described as beautiful brunette, Heather is former actress and now stay-at-home mother of four. She is married to prominent Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Terry Dubrow. According to the bio on Bravo's official site, Heather meets Tamra while shopping for a new property to design and build her family's next dream house.
The two immediately hit it off, and Heather later meets the other housewives. However, Heather's East Coast attitude soon turns some of her new friends into enemies, and she particularly has issues with Alexis.
In the meantime, Vicki is moving on with new boyfriend Brooks while she is still in the process of divorcing Donn. Gretchen lands a singing and dancing gig with The Pussycat Dolls in Las Vegas, and she makes amends with Tamra. As for Alexis, she is finally enjoying more freedom and independence with her new career as a special correspondent for a local morning news show.
