The Real Housewives of Orange County (RHOC) is a reality show that follows the lives of affluent women in Southern California. It is the original series of the larger Real Housewives franchise that includes shows in different cities and countries. The show premiered on Bravo on March 21, 2006 and has aired 16 seasons so far.

The show features the personal and professional lives of several women residing in Orange County, California. The cast changes over the seasons, but some of the most notable housewives include Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Storms Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Kelly Dodd. The show also features their husbands, boyfriends, children, friends and other relatives.

The show depicts the housewives’ daily activities, such as shopping, dining, socializing, traveling, working and parenting. It also showcases their conflicts, dramas, scandals and secrets. Some of the recurring themes include divorce, infidelity, lawsuits, health issues, addiction, plastic surgery and religion.

The show is known for its lavish lifestyle, glamorous events and explosive arguments. It also features some memorable moments, such as Vicki’s cancer scam, Tamra’s baptism, Heather’s champagne doorbell, Shannon’s affair revelation, Gina’s DUI arrest and Kelly’s positive COVID-19 test.

The show has received mixed reviews from critics and viewers. Some praise it for its entertainment value, cultural impact and female empowerment. Others criticize it for its superficiality, materialism and negative portrayal of women.

The show has also spawned several spin-offs and specials, such as Date My Ex: Jo & Slade , Tamra’s OC Wedding , The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip , The Real Housewives Awards and The Real Housewives of Orange County: Uncensored .

The show is currently in its 17th season, which premiered on June 7, 2023. The season features six main housewives: Tamra Judge (who returns after a two-season hiatus), Heather Dubrow (who returns after a four-season hiatus), Shannon Storms Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Jennifer Pedranti (a new housewife). It also features Taylor Armstrong (a former housewife from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ) as a friend of the housewives.

The season features some new twists and surprises, such as a cameo from Vicki Gunvalson (the OG of the OC who left the show after season 14), a heated confrontation between Heather and Shannon over a lawsuit involving Heather’s husband Terry Dubrow (a famous plastic surgeon), a shocking revelation from Jen about her husband’s infidelity and how she found out about it, a wild bachelorette party for Nicole James (Heather’s friend) in Las Vegas that involves strippers, champagne and handcuffs, a scary accident involving Gina’s son Nicholas that lands him in the hospital and a glamorous vow renewal ceremony for Emily and Shane that features a surprise guest.
