If there’s one thing you can always count on in this crazy world, it’s that The Real Housewives of Orange County will deliver — the drama, that is. And to steal a page from Chris Harrison’s quote book, it looks like RHOC Season 12 will be the most dramatic yet.
There are plenty of familiar faces in the just-released teaser trailer for the seemingly volatile season, including, of course, loud and proud longtime cast members Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. Also returning are Kelly Dodd, Meghan King Edmonds, Shannon Beador and Lydia McLaughlin, who is back after a hiatus from show.
There’s a newcomer to the crew too, and we all know how well that usually goes over in the beginning. Peggy Sulahian, an Armenian-born mother of three, isn’t just any newcomer, though… she is Bravo’s 100th Housewife.
While drama during any Real Housewives season episode interaction is a safe bet, we’ve gotta admit this season looks particularly rife with moments that will undoubtedly spawn countless memes in the days to come.
Meghan, who originally had a hard time being accepted in the group for being a stepmom, now has a bio-baby too and is struggling like, well, a new mom.
Shannon laments that she can’t stop stress-eating, blaming the expansion of her waist line on her frustration with a fellow Housewife. “All I want to do is eat. This is stress, and that is Vicki Gunvalson,” she insists.
It looks like Peggy and Kelly have some sort of beef to squash during the season, and you can naturally expect Kelly to be backing Vicki’s play during any squabble she starts.
Things appear to get especially heated when someone — did we just spot Tamra’s former RHOC frenemy Gretchen Rossi? — calls the sexuality of Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge into question. In the clip, a visibly emotional Tamara says through tears, “She’s so evil.”
And as if all of those juicy shenanigans weren’t enough of a gift from the reality TV gods, the lovely ladies will once again be traveling abroad. This time, their destination is Iceland, and by the looks of it, things aren’t just dramatic… they’re downright dangerous.
Tune into The Real Housewives of Orange County premiere on July 10 at 9/8c on Bravo to see how your favorite high-octane drama mamas fare.
