12 Former Real Housewives Of Orange County: Where Are They Now?
Bravo’s dramatic reality series known as the Real Housewives has been around for 10 years! One of the most popular and longest running is The Real Housewives of Orange County which started back in 2006. In the past decade the show has seen a lot of women come and go, sometimes returning for a few appearances here and there, but seemingly disappearing from the O.C. circle for good. Many of the women have faded from the spotlight while others are still trying to make a crack at fame. The eleventh season is currently airing with only one member of the original cast, the self proclaimed OG of the O.C., Vicki Gunvalson. Take a look at what these 12 former Real Housewives of Orange County are up to now!
12. Quinn Fry
Quinn was a main cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County during season 3 and returned as a guest in season 5 and 6. After the show, Fry moved to Northern California to be closer to her daughter and her grandchildren. In 2012 she returned to Orange County where she now works as an internet marketing manager and webmaster at Cox Communications. Her friend and fellow former Housewife, Jeana Keough, who works as a realtor found her a condo in Mission Viejo. She’s currently in her forties and single and remains true to her Real Housewives nickname as a “Christian cougar.” She has also said she would return to the show if she was given the opportunity, but she’d do things differently because at the time she had “too many filters on.”
11. Lydia McLaughlin
This religious kumbaya-singing Housewife was only on the show for one season, the eighth season in 2013. When a Housewife leaves the show there’s always speculation about whether she was fired or left on her own accord, but in Lydia’s case she stated that she was asked to return, but chose to separate herself from the cast because that was “not God’s plan” for her. She released a book afterwards called “Beyond Orange County: A Housewives Guide to Faith and Happiness.” The following year after she left the show, she and her husband, Doug welcomed a third child into their family, a baby boy named Maverick! She and her husband still manage their Beverly Hills Magazine, but are also launching a new men’s magazine called Noble Man. She continues to work on her jewelry line and actively updates her OC Lydia lifestyle blog with pictures of her family and Cali fashion. She has also become quite close with current Housewife Tamra Judge, who decided to take up the faith of Christianity last season.
