The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 will debut April 1 on Bravo.

Yes, we are somehow on the EIGHTH season of this franchise, which will bring back cast members Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Heather Dubrow, while also introducing fans to Lydia McLaughlin.

She owns/operates a high-end magazine in Southern California and she’s featured in the official cast photo below:


McLaughlin is also a devout Christian, a fact that doesn’t sit well with Dubrow in the accompanying promo.

“If she’s friends with Alexis, maybe she’s not my kind of people,” Heather says.

Watch now for a surprising return, as well as an admission from Rossi and frustration from Barney over fiancé Eddie Judge. Might these two not make it?!?
