Danielle Gregorio Is the New 'Real Housewives of Orange County' Cast Member You'll Love to Hate

The latest season of Real Housewives of Orange County, Season 9, has barely begun, and reports are already circulating that new housewife Danielle Gregorio is rubbing the old cast the wrong way. If you're like me, you're already missing Miss Gretchen Rossi. But, given that Gregorio is being pegged by Bravo as the "brutally honest" cast member this season, I can't wait to see what this potential shit-stirrer will bring to the table.

But who is she, exactly, beyond a drama chaser? Gregorio is a California native hailing from San Pedro, who hit the ground running post-casting announcement with a full PR blitz focused on denying allegations that her husband Joe is gay (even though we're pretty sure no one asked said question). An events planner by trade, the newly minted OC housewife is one of the co-founders of Heels2Heal, a non-profit that supports abused women and children in Orange County, through the magic of Jimmy Choo. (No, really: Gregorio plans an annual charity event for the shoe outfitter.)

Other housewives have alleged the mommy of three is a fame whore, making Gregorio definitely one to watch out for. Rumor has it the new season finds her asking her dad for a paternity test, among other pieces of simulated drama, so we can go ahead and assume the hubbub surrounding her husband's supposed extracurriculars might be a little fabricated too. Sources claim the reality starlet is desperate and "basically planning to ruin her entire family’s life" for a shot at being the center of the show. Gregorio just may be pure evil. I can't wait to see how this plays out.
