Photos Of 'The Real Housewives Of Orange County' Cast Before They Joined The Show Reveal They Always Look Great

Some of the ladies on Real Housewives of Orange County are not at all shy when it comes to their plastic surgeries and other cosmetic enhancements. With that said, it's pretty tough to find old pics of them. I guess that makes sense since women who spend so much time and money on their appearance are probably not trying to post "before" photos on any form of social media. Nevertheless, if you were wondering what the Real Housewives of Orange County cast looked like before they were famous reality stars, I did the social media stalking so you don't have to. And, believe me, it was a tough task. For the most part, the only "throwbacks" these women post are from past RHOC seasons which us fans were already familiar with anyway.

Luckily for all the fans, I was able to find some gems. And to be honest, I think that they've always looked great, but obviously it's their prerogative to change their personal appearance in any way that they choose. But, if you want to know what they looked like pre-fame, check out these throwback pics of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast from before they joined the show.

Vicki Gunvalson

It's hard to remember a time when Vicki wasn't a Real Housewife, especially since she is the only original cast member remaining on the show. Needless to say, it was extremely difficult find a pre-RHOC photo of Vicki. The only one I could track down was from back in the day when Vicki was a flower girl at her aunt's wedding. At the very least, this photo shows us that Vicki is a natural blonde.

Tamra Judge

Even with the bangs and the lip liner, this picture from 1990 looks just like the Tamra that we know today. Other than following the trends of the time and having much more facial movement, Tamra really does look exactly the same.

Heather Dubrow

Her style is pretty much the same. If it wasn't for her caption, I would have no idea that this was a throwback pic from such a long time ago.

Shannon Beador

Shannon and her oldest daughter look so much alike in this photo. Shannon looks so happy in the pic too which is really nice to see in contrast to the stressed out Shannon that we often witness on the show.

Meghan King Edmonds

RHOC wasn't Meghan's first reality show. Actually, Meghan picked out her wedding dress on the show Say Yes to the Dress . I'm not sure what she's pouting about her in this scene, but I'm sure it was way less stressful than the Real Housewives drama that she deals with these days.

Kelly Dodd

It is so strange seeing Kelly Dodd with such long hair. I'm feeling it though. And she really looked great with that pregnancy glow.

No matter what, the RHOC ladies always look amazing. Even before reality show fame, these women really knew how to bring it.
