The Real Housewives of Orange County are back.
But will they be better than ever?
The original edition of this Bravo franchise returns to the air this evening, soon after cast member Meghan King Edmonds announced her first pregnancy.
What sort of juicy tidbits and storylines can we expect from the series itself over the next several weeks?
As those who watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online know very well, Season 10 concluded with rumors swirling over the falsification of Vicki Gunvalson's ex’s medical records.
Was Brooks really lying about his cancer diagnosis?!?
Vicki and her fellow cast members argued over this possibility, as well as over what Vicki knew regarding the situation.
“I didn’t want last season to end the way it did,” Gunvalson tells Entertainment Weekly in a season preview.
“People had a very skewed reality of what really happened in my relationship and things, and I didn’t want it to end like that.”
The upcoming season will feature the return of Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, and Edmonds, all of whom are still estranged from Gunvalson, who is now single.
Look for Vicki to rely on Jeana Keough for emotional support in times of need.
Oh, yes, she'll be back for a "few episodes," as Keough teases to EW.
Gunvalson is vague about what fans can look forward to this summer, but does offer the following hints:
“I think that people have gotten a little more ballsy, more aggressive than it was in the previous times.
"We are strong women; we do have opinions. And I’m okay with that, but I’m not okay with hurting people’s integrity or hurting people’s businesses or what have you.
"So that’s where there’s a line that has to be drawn - this is a reality show, and let’s keep it real.”
Sorry. It's hard not to laugh when anyone uses the word "real" in conjunction with any of these Bravo shows.
The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to Bravo for Season 11 on Monday, June 20, at 9/8c. Will you be tuning in?
