The Real Housewives of Orange County, TRHOOC, Season 10

The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies are getting real this season. That's not to say they weren't "real" for the previous nine seasons, but season 10 is poised to be a different kind of season for the women of Orange County.

"You're going to see a lot of real," Shannon Beador teased. "With all of us." Shannon, who won E! Online's Best Housewife Ever tournament, is back for her second season on the show. Last year, she let the cameras in and put everything out there about her marriage. From the trailer, it looks like there's more of that this season.

This season, Shannon and veterans Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge are joined by newbie Meghan King Edmonds. "Genius casting," Tamra said of her new costar. "She's really good."

Real Housewives of Orange County is no stranger to extravagant (and dramatic) group trips and parties, and this year is no different.

"We had a great trip to Tahiti," Vicki told us. "We all just look back on that trip as one of our best—I think one of our best cast trips. We swam with the sharks and just did things we probably shouldn't have done—like drank too much—but I just think we had one of our greatest trips ever."

Old friends Jeana Keough and Tammy Knickerbocker are back for some guest appearances, but don't expect much drama from them. The drama comes naturally this year, according to Tamra.

"I think it's a really good season this year. We have a birth, my granddaughter, we have a death, we have everything in between," Tamra explained. "It's really real life stuff going on. It's not like, ‘You didn't invite me to a party! You took my chair!' It's not that stuff..."

Tamra, you may recall, was on the outs with many of her costars at the end of last season after a lot of gossiping, but she's back in everybody's good graces. "Well, there's going to be a lot of clarity with that this year," she said. "You're going to go, ‘Oh, she was telling the truth!' Stay tuned on that one."

Tamra Judge: Vindicated? "Absolutely. If not, I was baptized!"

The Real Housewives of Orange County premieres Monday, June 8 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
