'Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 7 Preview: Let's Give 'Em Something to 'Woohoo!' About

The last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County was an explosion of cattiness and wine throwing. Or, in a word: Awesome. In between the backstabbing and badmouthing, Tamra Barney started her new life as a divorcee with new Latino beau Eddie, while Vicki Gunvalson's insurance business took off, but her 17 year marriage to Donn ended. Gretchen Rossi expanded her prospects with her handbag and jewelry lines, as well as exploring the possibility of marriage to her (rumored) deadbeat-dad boyfriend (and oft Real Housewives guest star) Slade Smiley. Meanwhile, Alexis Bellino worked on her "dress line" and constantly tried to one-up the better-than-her and unfortunately gone-from-the-show Peggy Tanous all while claiming how Christian and righteous she was. So: What have the OC 'wives been up to since we last saw them? And what fresh drama awaits for the next season?
