“THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF OC” RETURNS

NEW YORK – June 11, 2018 – Bravo Media’s original series that started the hit franchise “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is back for a new season, ready to move forward and whoop it up, beginning Monday, July 16 at 9 pm ET/PT.  This season, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd are joined by two feisty new housewives Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. As the ladies face life’s ups-and-downs, they find the importance of each other’s support and friendship more than ever before. For a sneak peek of season 13, go to: http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-orange-county/season-13/videos/your-first-look-at-rhoc-season-13.

Season 12 of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” drew nearly 3 million total viewers, ranking in 2017 among the top 15 reality series on cable with P18-49 and in the top five most affluent programs, among the top 100 rated scripted and unscripted series on cable.”

After the surprising reconciliation between Vicki, Tamra and Shannon at last season’s reunion, the ladies are working to rebuild their friendship and regain each other’s trust.  But they all know it will take more than a hug to repair the rumors, betrayal and damage done over the years.  Newly single, Shannon and Kelly have both moved into new homes and find that they are approaching their post-divorce life very differently, as they navigate the dating world, raise their daughters and launch their own careers. Vicki and Steve’s relationship is still going strong, but the OG of the OC wants him to commit and be more than just a boyfriend.  Meanwhile, Tamra fears that a health scare for Eddie could have bigger consequences than just sidelining her husband from CUT Fitness.  In the spirit of reconciliation and new beginnings, Tamra brings her estranged friend Emily and acquaintance Gina into the group to shake things up in the OC.

Emily Simpson

A true rags-to-riches story, Emily is an Ohio transplant who came from nothing and willed herself to great success to become an attorney, a part-time party-planer, a wife and a mom.  However, motherhood has been a bumpy road for her after years of fertility and pregnancy issues.  Resigned to the fact that she could not successfully carry her own children, Emily’s sister Sarah stepped in as a surrogate for all three of Emily and her husband Shane’s children – daughter Annabelle and twin boys Luke and Keller.  With three children under five, and two step-daughters from Shane’s previous marriage, Emily and Shane, are trying to plan out the future of their family and their careers together.  Emily planned Tamra’s baby shower for granddaughter Ava a few years back, but had a falling out with her shortly after befriending some of Tamra’s former besties.  Now focusing on mending the toxic relationships in her life, Emily hopes that she can find true friendships with the ladies.

Gina Kirschenheiter

This expressive outsider from Long Island is shaking up Southern California and its politically correct Orange County ways. As a mother of three kids under the age of 5, Gina keeps her expectations low and her patience high.  With her husband working and living in Los Angeles during the week, Gina is a single mom of sorts, which causes her to re-evaluate what she wants and needs in her marriage. Having only lived in Orange County for 3 years, she is still acclimating and is quickly learning that friendships in the OC aren’t always what they seem.

Tune in tonight, Monday, June 11 at 9 pm ET/PT for the half-hour special, “The Real Housewives of Orange County: How They Got Here” to reminisce on the memorable moments, jam-packed with all the screwball fun, drama and conflict from the past 12 seasons. Get caught up on the ladies with Vicki’s love tank woes, Tamra’s wavering friendship with the OG of the OC, Shannon’s rocky marriage and Kelly’s polarizing arrival into the fold.

“The Real Housewives of Orange County” is produced by Evolution Media for Bravo, with Douglas Ross, Alex Baskin, Stephanie Boyriven and Brian McCarthy, along with Scott Dunlop, serving as Executive Producers.

Meet the new housewife:

 

Candiace Dillard

Candiace Dillard joins “The Real Housewives of Potomac” this season with a touch of sass and savviness. The 31-year-old former Miss United States was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, with her Air Force physician parents and siblings, Chris and Crystal. At an early age, Candiace learned what excellence looked like from observing her parents, who worked in different facets of the medical field. A graduate of Howard University, she served a tenure in the White House Offices of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, where she liaised between the White House and the African American community for President Barack Obama. She later traded in her suit and heels for the campaign trail, where she served as a staffer for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign. In 2013, Candiace won the crown and title of Miss United States and hasn’t looked back since. She has competed in the pageant industry for many years and holds top placements in the Sunburst, National American Miss, National Miss American Coed, Georgia Miss American Coed, Miss Maryland USA, Miss District of Columbia USA, and Miss United States pageant systems.

As an entrepreneur, she is the founder and CEO of Candiace Dillard Pageant Consulting, cofounder of Prima Hair Collection by Candiace Dillard, and co-owner of Chateau Salon Suites. In 2009, she also founded an organization called My Sister’s Keeper, a mentorship and women’s empowerment organization designed to give young girls the opportunity to interact with women in their communities. Candiace is currently engaged to her soulmate, restaurateur Chris Bassett, whom she met while they were both working at a restaurant in downtown Washington, D.C. They were friends for several years before the courtship blossomed into undeniable love, and Chris proposed to her with a surprise engagement that included all of her family and friends. When she is not running her numerous businesses or being a pageant girl, Candiace can be found curled up with a good book, as reading is her favorite pastime.

In this new series, Ryan answers the call of struggling salespeople across multiple industries who are on the brink of losing their jobs and are desperate for his expertise. With some tough love and humor, Ryan will give underperforming employees a head-to-toe business overhaul and turn them into sales machines.

In each episode, Ryan takes a deep dive into each protégé’s world, using every trick in the book to become their bootcamp instructor, friend, teacher and even customer, to help them reach their full potential. Ryan goes all in, often hilariously so, as he learns the ropes of different industries that are somewhat foreign to a “Million Dollar” broker – from learning to sell services in a waxing salon, to learning the world of high stakes hot tub sales, he will push his students, and himself, to the limit. As he tries their products and tests their sales skills, he gets to the root of what’s troubling each salesperson, breaking them down and building them back up with expert knowledge and newfound confidence. Ultimately, employees will be put to the test each week when he or she will showcase their new skills in full view of their bosses and hopefully prove they can “Sell it Like Serhant.”
