Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to hayu on Tuesday 11th July 2017.
The returning housewives are Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Meghan King Edmonds, Kelly Dodd and Lydia McLaughlin. This season they are joined by new housewife Peggy Sulahian, who is the 100th housewife to join the Real Housewives franchise.
The arrival of Peggy, who is preparing to undergo reconstructive surgery following her decision to undergo a double mastectomy when doctors recently found a lump in her breast, ruffles feathers and you can bet there’ll be fireworks.
This season, things are looking up in Vicki’s life, her relationship with new beau Steve is getting serious, her business is expanding and she finally has her daughter Briana and grandbabies back in the OC. Except, Vicki and Tamra still find themselves at a major crossroads in their decade long friendship. Tamra, still filled with anger and resentment from last season’s accusations, struggles to find forgiveness. Her feud with the OG of the OC has pushed her even closer to God as she reconnects with her old friend Lydia over bible study. Back into the fold, Lydia tries to reclaim her title of “Friendship Whisperer” by attempting to mend fences with Vicki and Tamra, but quickly realizes that being Switzerland will be easier said than done.
The residual stress from last year’s bus ride from hell leaves Shannon in a vulnerable state as she tries to refocus her energy on getting into shape, keeping the spark alive in her marriage and caring for the newest member of the Beador clan, dog Archie. New mum Meghan finds motherhood rewarding but difficult as she struggles with lack of sleep, post-partum hormones and Jimmy being an overbearing father. Meanwhile, for Kelly, her marriage to Michael is still complicated, but when Tamra and Shannon befriend her, it makes everyone around her question what her motives are.
The Real Housewives of Orange County returns Tuesday 11th July on hayu, reality on demand.
