RHOC turns 15: the place are your favourite stars now?
Fifteen years ago five women –Kimberly Bryant, Jo De La Rosa, Vicki Gunvalson and Jeana Keough and Lauri Waring –welcomed cameras in their homes and changed reality television forever.
The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered on March 21, 2006. Bravo documented the real life of its stars as they “lived a glamorous life in a quaint Southern California condominium where the average home is priced at $ 1.6 million. Residents include CEOs and retired professional athletes.”
23 housewives, 15 seasons, nine spin-offs in other luxury cities, and an endless number of fights later, RHOC is still on the air, ending its final season in January.

These women spent a lot of money. The got divorced. They found love again. You fought. They made up. They investigated whether Vicki’s former boyfriend Brooks Ayers lied about his cancer diagnosis. They hooted. And they did everything for the world to see, and for that our love tanks are full of gratitude.
In honor of the series’ milestone anniversary, we’ve checked back in with all of Orange County’s ex-housewives to see what they’ve been up to since they dropped their oranges, including Heather Dubrow, Alexis Bellino and Tamra Richter.
