Bravo renews 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' for a fifth season
By Reality TV World staff, 04/14/2009
Bravo has formally announced it has renewed The Real Housewives of Orange County for a fifth season.
Similar to previous seasons, The Real Housewives of Orange County's fifth season will continue to follow the lives of the show's California cast members and all the drama that results from them.
However, which housewives will be appearing on the upcoming season still remains unclear. In December, Vicki Gunvalson -- one of the show's two remaining original housewives -- seemed to be having second thoughts about continuing with the show due to her husband's "100 percent" regret about the couple's participation.
"No comment," Gunvalson had said when asked if she would be interested in being part of a fifth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
The Real Housewives of Orange County's fourth season had included a storyline in which Gunvalson had said her "love tank is depleted" and stated she was unsure if her husband Don Gunvalson could "fill it up."
"He's a vice president of a company. He has to go to work the next day, and he has people saying, 'Wow your wife really trashed ya again last night,'" Vicki told E! News at the time. "For a man, it's horrible. All I could say to him is, 'Honey, I love you. I'm sorry. Let's get past it.' And he was like, 'You should have thought about that when you were blabbing about your stupid love tank.'"
The Real Housewives of Orange County's fourth season premiered last November and averaged more than 2 million total viewers per episode.
The Real Housewives of Orange County is produced by Evolution Film & Tape Inc., with Douglas Ross, Gregory Stewart and Kathleen French serving as executive producers.
