After the departure of Meghan King-Edmonds, Lydia McLaughlin, and Peggy Sulahian, it looks like there will be three new faces on The Real Housewives of Orange County this upcoming season. Photos of the newbies shooting with two regular cast members at The Deck in Laguna recently surfaced on social media, as RealHousewives101 tweeted the images. So now the question is – who are the newcomers and how much will each of them clash with Vicki Gunvalson in season 13?
In the photos, fans can see Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge with two of the new additions who have their backs turned to the camera. It appears that one of them has long blonde hair, while the other has dark strawberry blonde locks.

The tweet claims that the mystery women are Gina Kirshenheiter and Emily Moore Simpson. Radar Online reported not long ago that the third new cast member will be Tatiana Beene. The story is that Kirshenheiter is one of Judge’s best friends, and Beene is a friend of Kirshenheiter.
Back in March, reports surfaced that Kirshenheiter had already “caused commotion” with RHOC producers because she appeared to have given away the secret of her new role on the show with one of her Instagram posts. She included the word “real” in the caption which appeared to reference Real Housewives of Orange County.
We don’t know much yet about the new women on the show, but Beene has been sharing a lot of photos on her social media recently of her and Judge.
Dodd, Judge, and Shannon Beador have all confirmed that they will be back next season and have shared photos of themselves on social media filming new episodes. The cast – including Gunvalson – filmed in Jamaica last week, but they did not share any images of the new cast members.

Bravo will not announce the new cast until we get closer to the season premiere, so fans will have to wait a little bit longer for the official word. But, in the meantime, social media and leaked photos will keep them in the loop.
Things will definitely be different this season, with Dodd and Beador recently going through divorces. The two used to be sworn enemies, but their recent Instagram photos show that they seem to be getting along right now since they have so much in common. But, alliances on the show do tend to shake up fast.
Vicki Gunvalson returns for Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County later this summer on Bravo.
