‘RHOBH’ alum Taylor Armstrong joins ‘RHOC’ cast
It looked like she had everything, but she wanted more.
Former ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Taylor Armstrong has been cast in the upcoming season of ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County,’ Bravo confirmed to Page Six on Monday.
Armstrong, who starred in “RHOBH” from 2010 for the first three seasons, will make “Housewives” history as the first full-time cast member to switch cities within the franchise.
Armstrong has yet to comment on the change. People were the first to break the news.
The reality star moved to Orange County, Calif., after marrying husband John Bluher in April 2014.
Armstrong made her reality TV comeback when she starred in “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club,” which recently aired on Peacock.
Armstrong is the second “ex-wife” who was able to use the spinoff as a way to prove her worth to return to television full-time.
Page Six exclusively broke the news in July that Tamra Judge would return to “RHOC” despite being fired in January 2020 after 11 seasons on the show.
“Tamra is thrilled to be back on the show, especially after feeling the love from fans during her time on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’,” a source told Us at the time.
“She can’t wait to get back in the mix on ‘RHOC’ and see how she can shake up the dynamic.”
Heather Dubrow, who also made history when she joined the cast after a five-season hiatus, will star alongside her close friend. Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson will also continue to star in the OG series “Housewives.”
Season 16 debutants “RHOC” Noella Bergener and Dr. Jennifer Armstrong announced in early July that they would not be returning to the hit show.
Bravo has begun filming Season 17 but has yet to announce a premiere date or cast.
