As the very first of the Real Housewives series, Real Housewives Of Orange County has seen a lot of stuff go down over the course of its 11 seasons. Some seasons were obviously better than others, but Season 11 and its never-ending drama certainly brought the drama back to Orange County. Season 11 is unfortunately over, but when does Season 12 of Real Housewives Of Orange County start?
Remember the days of Jo and Slade? Hell, of Gretchen and Slade? And Lauri and Slade? Basically everyone dated Slade, if you didn’t know. What about Jim and Alexis and when Tamra called her “Jesus Jugs”? Those were really the days, huh? No premiere date has been set for Season 12 of Real Housewives Of Orange County quite yet, but the show usually starts airing in the summer — I’m guessing the new episodes with Vicki (because Vicki will never not be on this show) and the rest of the returning crew will probably arrive in the summer of 2017. Until then, we’ll just have the memories of screaming with margaritas under the quiet, swaying palm trees of Cabo San Lucas. To hold us all over until a new season of Real Housewives Of Orange County, let’s recount some of the series’ weirdest and most dramatic moments.
When Tamra Threw A Drink In Jeana’s Face
Jeana was an RHOC OG before bidding the show adieu, but it doesn’t mean she wasn’t a fan of the pop in in other subsequent seasons. I barely remember why Jeana and Tamra were fighting here, but I think it had to do with Tamra’s ex-husband, Simon, and the press. In any case, Jeana got a face full of pinot at a crowded “cast reunion” party.
When There Was A Fight At The Bunco Party
Everyone loves a good costume party on Real Housewives Of Orange County, because costumes are all the better to fight in. This fight between Vicki and Slade was just one battle in their all-out war, but since Vicki screeched to levels that can only be heard by dogs, this one stands out to me. Vicki called Slade a deadbeat, and Slade called her ugly, and everyone was wearing neon colors.
When Tamra Wanted A Divorce
How many happy marriages are on Real Housewives shows? Not many. Tamra and Simon Barney spent a season trying to save theirs (Tamra even got his name tattooed on her finger), but it wasn’t meant to be. Their fighting came to a head in the back of a limo with Tamra saying, “F*ck you. F*ck you. I want a divorce.” Not a comfortable moment to witness.
When Vicki Found Out Her Mother Died
Real Housewives of Orange County is mostly rich, white women screaming at each other, but there are moments that are real and poignant and heart wrenching that make it onto the show. One of the most notable was when Vicki found out that her mother unexpectedly had passed away. I think everyone got on the phone and called his or her parents after seeing this episode.
When Lynne Got Evicted
Speaking of real life occurrence, Lynne Curtin allegedly had no idea that her family was out of cash. Well, viewers got to see Lynne's daughters receive an eviction notice, and things got real.
What will Season 12 of Real Housewives Of Orange County bring? We’ll have to wait until 2017 to find out.
