Ten seasons in and The Real Housewives of Orange County may be giving viewers the realest season yet. Already this year the Bravo reality show has captured a birth, a death and chronicled a couple's marriage struggles after an admitted affair.
"I think what's great about the show this year, as opposed to previous seasons where I feel like there was a lot of petty drama—from myself as well, you know, ‘Who's sitting in my chair?' and that kind of nonsense—but, this year I think you're really seeing everyone's real relationship struggles, no matter what they are, at all different levels," Heather Dubrow told us. "But it's all real."
Heather's costar Shannon Beador has not been shy about dealing with her husband David's affair, something Heather called brave. "I think, the truth is, they'll end up helping a lot of people and show how you can come out the other side," Heather said.
While viewers have already seen Tamra Judge's granddaughter's birth, Vicki Gunvalson learn of her mother's death, there is still the big trip ahead to Tahiti. And of course you can expect drama. You can't expect a Real Housewives trip to go off without a hitch. The three certainties in life: death, taxes and drama on a Real Housewives trip. Viewers have also yet to see what happens when Meghan King Edmonds starts discussing the legitimacy of Brooks Ayers' cancer battle.
"It's an interesting journey," Heather said. "By the end, things definitely take an odd twist."
