The Real Housewives of Orange County are back for another season!

Season 13 aired in the U.S. on July 16th, 2018 and now it’s here in the U.K.

Orange County OG’s Vicky Gunvalson, Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge all return for another series as well as Kelly Dodd.

This season the ladies take a trip to Jamaica and there are two newbies to the group – Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter.

Here’s a who’s who on The Real Housewives of Orange County season 13 cast!

Tamra Judge

Since season 3 Tamra has been an OC housewife.

She introduces both the newcomers to season 13 – not that it’s all plain sailing from there.

Tamra has her own challenges to face during her tenth season on the show including her husband Eddie being in and out of hospital.

Vicky Gunvalson

The OG from the OC returns for season 13.

Let’s face it, the show wouldn’t be the same without Vicky.

Vicky ‘whoops it up’ once again this season, starts twerking and we’re introduced to her new boyfriend, Steve Lodge.

Kelly Dodd

Kelly Dodd is back for a third consecutive season.

Things have changed for Kelly since last season when she separated from her husband Michael, she’s now moved into her own house and deals with the difficulties of co-parenting her daughter, Jolie.

Shannon Beador

Shannon probably has the toughest time during season 13 of RHOC.

Since joining the show in season 9 Shannon has been through a messy divorce and struggled to find her feet as a single parent.

Emily Simpson

One of two newbies to the show, Emily, is a mother of five.

She was born in Ohio but now lives in Orange County with her husband Shane and their adorable kids.

Emily is an attorney and certainly isn’t one to be messed with this season.

Gina Kirschenheiter

Mum-of-three Gina is the second newcomer to the show.

Gina certainly isn’t warmly welcomed into the group as the rest of the ladies seem to judge her life choices.

She goes through some difficult times during season 13 but it looks like she and Emily have made friends for life since meeting on RHOC.
