Real Housewives of Orange County is heading back to Bravo for an eighth season this Spring and with Tamra planning a wedding and Gretchen for babies, it’s sure to be an action packed season. Earlier this morning, the trailer for the long-awaited season was released and in it was plenty of drama and.. a new ‘Wife!

As suspected, Lydia Stirling McLaughlin has joined the returning ladies but as a friend of Alexis Bellino (who said she would NOT be returning to the show but changed her mind), many of her co-stars are immediately put off including Heather Dubrow who says, “If she’s friends with Alexis, maybe she’s not my kind of people.”

Also back for season 8 is Lauri Waring who makes a couple of guest appearances on the show but isn’t an official wife. However, she does stir the pot by dropping a bomb that rocks Gretchen Rossi’s world.

Meanwhile, Tamra Barney is planning her wedding to Eddie Judge after last season’s engagement but he’s not interested in all the pressure that comes with a big day and Gretchen is preparing for motherhood with Slade (but since she told Starcasm this weekend that Slade has yet to get his vasectomy reversed, don’t expect to see a pregnancy this season). “Now is the time to start having lots of sex and have babies,” Gretchen announces.

Vicki Gunvalson and her boyfriend Brooks Ayers are on-and-off, but when they turn things back on and Vicki wants to have Brooks with her in her home, it causes some serious friction between her and daughter Briana who is living with her at the time.

Real Housewives of Orange County season 8 returns to Bravo on April 1 at 8/7c.
