'The Real Housewives of Orange County'
The Real Housewives of Orange County was the first-ever installment in The Real Housewives franchise, and the show has been on the air since 2006. The Season 1 cast consisted of Kimberly Bryant, Jo De La Rosa, Jeana Keough, Lauri Peterson, and Vicki Gunvalson. Notable additions to the cast include Tamra Judge, Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi, Meghan King, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas.
None of the original cast members are still on the show (Vicki Gunvalson left in 2020 after 14 seasons), but the Season 16 cast consists of seasoned veterans and a set of compelling newbies.
