THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY, Heather Dubrow Isabella Vosmikova/Bravo

Welcome to the neighborhood!

When the seventh season of The Real Housewives of Orange County premieres, there will be a new blonde in the...

Wait a minute! This just in—the newest Housewife is a brunette! And here's what else we know about Heather Dubrow...

A former actress, Dubrow (née Heather Paige Kent) starred in the CBS series That's Life with Paul Sorvino, Ellen Burstyn, Kevin Dillon and Debi Mazar, so she's had some friends in high places. (And now we're also wondering how this well-cast sitcom didn't last more than two seasons.)

She is now a stay-at-home mom to her four kids with plastic surgeon hubby Terry Dubrow—who is no stranger to reality TV. He previously peddled his beautifying skills on The Swan and Bridalplasty.

From the looks of it, the entire Dubrow family will be along for the ride, with Heather tweeting a pretty darn cute family photo along with this confirmation: "It's official! The Dubrow Family...Making our debut on Season 7 - RHOC! Terry,Heather,Nicky,Max,Katarina &Collette!"

So far, so good.

Looking at all those smiling faces, it's unclear just yet how Heather's storyline is going to fit in with Vicki Gunvalson's ongoing divorce, her daughter's health issues and the introduction of her new boyfriend; Tamra Barney's divorce/new relationship; Tamra and Gretchen Rossi's blossoming let-bygones-be-bygones friendship; Gretchen's foray into being a Pussycat Doll; and Alexis Bellino's stab at being a morning-show correspondent.

The show's seventh season premieres Feb. 7 on Bravo. (Bravo and E! are both members of the NBCU family.)
