After being the first to confirm The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 is filming, veteran OC Housewife Tamra Judge may have just revealed some more big news about what (and WHO!) we can expect to see when the new season airs! Tamra took to Instagram on Friday to share her weekend plans which, apparently, included hanging out with the “new housewife” and househubby. She shared a picture of the matchup’s team logos with the caption “Excited to be going to the game tomorrow with Shannon & David (new housewife) can’t wait to see you @heathermcdonald #USC”.
Unfortunately, without tags or last name to help us out, who exactly “Shannon and David” are remained a mystery. You may remember Heather McDonald, a regular on Chelsea Lately and Tamra’s gal pal, from Tamra’s OC Wedding–she helped the couple celebrate at their bachelor/bachelorette party in Vegas over the summer.
Later, Tamra was back on Instagram sharing a girls pic from the outing with the caption “Hanging with Shannon @heathermcdonald before the game #USC”. Sadly (and also interestingly) Tamra has since deleted both of the afore-mentioned photos from her Instagram account, which is why I am no longer able to share those posts with you here. I’m guessing Bravo wasn’t too happy that Tamra spilled the beans about the new Housewife.
Luckily, she also shared some additional photos via Facebook from their game day outing. These have also since been deleted from her account:
The other blonde in these pictures is clearly the afore-mentioned Shannon and the guy on the far right in the first pic must be David. I did some digging through Twitter and Facebook but couldn’t find any additional clues about who this mystery couple is. But, if Tamra is correct, we are looking the newest addition to RHOC! The fact that the incriminating pics have all been taken down now only makes me more confident that this tip is the real deal, folks!
With Gretchen and Alexis reportedly fired and Lydia opting not to return for Season 9, we certainly were expecting some fresh faces to join Bravo’s original leading ladies in the OC. Here’s hoping The Real Housewives of Orange County can withstand such a major casting shakeup and come out even stronger and more over-the-top. Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow join Tamra as the last three previous cast members standing, a fact which Tamra also shared with her Instagram followers along with the caption “Last three standing @heatherdubrow @vgunvalson @tamrajudge“:
Can’t wait to find out who will round out the RHOC Season 9 cast! Shannon certainly seems to look the part…and you know I’ll be keeping my ear to the ground to find out more!
