Who stars in 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 17?

Tamra Judge

Tamra was unexpectedly let go from 'RHOC' after Season 14 due to financial disagreements. However, she bounced back quickly and made an appearance on 'The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip' alongside fellow alum Vicki Gunvalson. Now, it seems Bravo met her demands as she returns for Season 17.

Heather Dubrow

An actor and wife to renowned plastic surgeon Terry Dubrow, Heather returns after previously being a part of 'RHOC' from Season 7 to 11. Last season, she came back to shed light on parenting LGBTQ+ children and it will be intriguing to see her reunited with Tamra, especially since she was with mostly new cast members last time.

Shannon Storms Beador

Shannon, the seasoned member since Season 9, holds the title of the show's elder statesman. She faced conflicts with several cast members last season, particularly with Gina Kirschenheiter, and their relationship remains uncertain going into Season 17.

Gina Kirschenheiter

Gina is the youngest member at 38 years old and joined the cast during Season 13. After a turbulent relationship with Shannon last season, she once again finds herself at the center of the drama in the upcoming season.

Emily Simpson

Emily, the attorney, returns for her fifth season. Her previous interactions with Tamra were not smooth, and now that they are in different stages of life following Tamra's hiatus, their dynamics will be explored in the upcoming season.

Jennifer Pedranti

Jennifer is the new addition to the group and is a yoga studio owner and a mother of five. Although introduced as a friend of Tamra's, the trailer hints at a potential short-lived connection. Given the history of one-season housewives on 'RHOC,' only time will reveal Jennifer's fate.

Taylor Armstrong

Taylor, an original housewife from 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' makes history by switching franchises. After being away from the show for several years, she returns this season as a "friend of the housewives," marking a significant and unprecedented move.


'The Real Housewives of Orange County' is created by Scott Dunlop. Douglas Ross, Alex Baskin, Thomas Kelly, Brian McCarthy, Apryl Richards, Scott Dunlop and Andy Cohen serves as Executive producers.
