Meet the newest additions to "Real Housewives of Orange County:" Elizabeth Rovsek and Shannon Beador. According to Us Weekly, Rovsek and Beador will join Season 9 of Bravo's franchise, just as cast members Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi and Lydia McLaughlin depart.
"Lizzie" Rovsek is a former pageant winner and owns her own business, Sun Kitten Swimwear. She and her husband, Christian Rovsek, have two sons. Adding to the rumor mill, Rovsek recently tweeted at "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" newcomer, Joyce Giraud. Perhaps they have a budding Bravo friendship?
Beador's casting has been rumored for weeks, and she has reportedly been out on the town with current "RHOC" cast member, Tamra Barney. According to E! News, Barney posted a photo of Beador on Instagram with the caption, "Excited to be going to the game tomorrow with Shannon & David (new housewife) can't wait to see you…" But the post is no longer on Barney's Instagram, and sources told E! that Bravo asked her to remove the photo from her account.
Other ardent fans and outlets have been speculating that "Chelsea Lately" comedienne, Heather McDonald, will join "Real Housewives" cast in Season 9. She's also been seen out and about with Barney, Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow, the only three returning housewives.
Bravo has yet to confirm or deny the castings.
