A first look at Season 16 of the Real Housewives of Orange County shows a casting shake up in a big way. 

Heather Dubrow is back for more following her franchise exit in 2017, while newcomers include a bisexual housewife named Noella Bergener and a formerly sued cosmetic dermatologist named Jennifer Armstrong. 

The explosive nearly two minute trailer shows a whole lot of drama with Bravo bringing in fresh blood after the departures of Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Vargas.

The teaser opens with Dubrow, 52, beckoning ‘Hello? I’m back,’ while stepping into her 22,000 square foot mansion in Crystal Cove. 

As seen in the trailer, Heather quickly becomes the reigning queen of the show and forges an almost instantaneous bond with returning housewife Gina Kirschenheiter, 37. 

Received well by seemingly all, housewife Emily Simpson, 45, says ‘I love Heather,’ while Gina concurs ‘She brings me to fancy s**t.’

But Heather and Gina’s close friendship seems to spark jealousy in housewife Shannon Beador, 57, who is seemingly hellbent on keeping Dubrow for herself.

‘Do you get jealous of Gina’s relationship with Heather,’ Simpson asks Beador during a dinner scene, before she attempts to assert that she has her ‘own relationship with Heather.’

The video then jumps to Beador trying to ring Dubrow on the phone before she quickly gets her call denied. ‘That wasn’t a decline that was a block,’ new housewife Noella Bergener, 36, interjects. 

Later in the teaser Heather tells Emily and Gina: ‘Shannon told me that the two of you were not to be trusted,’ which lays the groundwork for a dramatic confrontation.  

Viewers are introduced to Bergener — a wildcard who becomes close friends with Shannon — and is in the midst of an unexpected divorce, following just one year of marriage.

Bringing her own fair share of drama, she confesses to being bisexual while having a heart to heart with Dubrow’s 17-year-old daughter Max — who came out last summer.  

However what started as a friendly bond, clearly spirals out of control after Heather accuses Noella of giving pornography to her daughter. 

 ‘I didn’t want to invite you because you gave my daughter pornography as a gift,’ she says to a shocked Noella at the end of the teaser.

Though Bergener’s husband James filed for divorce first, she is currently seeking legal and physical custody of the couple’s two-year-old son, James Jr. 

And the second new castmate is Dr. Jennifer Armstrong, a cosmetic dermatologist with a hunky husband named Ryne who she says ‘never wears a shirt.’

A friend of ex castmate Braunwyn’s, she is well received by the group of plastic surgery aficionados on the show, and swiftly begins to be their go-to for pick-me-up procedures. 

‘There’s a lot of people in Orange County who look like cat muppets and I think some of them have been in this chair,’ she bitingly says of previous housewives in a confessional.  

Perhaps a bit too close to home though, Armstrong was sued this past summer for battery and medical negligence, after a former patient accused her of screwing up fillers and causing her to become disfigured.

Reportedly she has also faced other lawsuits, including one from her billionaire ex who claimed she wrung him out to dry financially and sued her for $850,000 in 2014.

The upcoming season will feature lavish trips in true Bravo fashion including one to  to Cabo San Lucas and New York City. 

The series will also feature a newcomer fringe castmate by the name of Nicole James (who makes a brief appearance at the end of the trailer) who was reportedly ‘demoted’ after a confrontation with Dubrow. 

James was said to be ostracized a few weeks into shooting Season 16 after expressing dissatisfaction with a breast augmentation done by Dubrow’s husband, Terry Dubrow of Botched fame. 

Reportedly James’ remarks made their way back to Heather via Shannon, driving a wedge in between the duo as well which is set to play out on camera.  

The upcoming season is set to premiere on Bravo December 1.
