‘RHOBH’ alum Taylor Armstrong joins ‘RHOC’ cast: Report

It may seem like she already had everything, but she wanted more.

Former ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Taylor Armstrong has been cast for the next season of ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County,’ People reported Monday.

Armstrong, who starred in “RHOBH” for the first three seasons beginning in 2010, “Housewives” will make history as the first full-time cast member to change city within the franchise.

Neither Bravo nor Armstrong immediately responded to Vidak For Congress’s requests for comment.

The reality star moved to Orange County, California, after marrying her husband, John Bluher, in April 2014.

Armstrong made her comeback to reality TV when she starred in “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club,” which recently aired on Peacock.

Armstrong is the second “ex-wife” the spin-off could use to prove they were worthy of returning to TV full-time.

Vidak For Congress exclusively broke the news in July that Tamra Judge will return to “RHOC”, despite being fired in January 2020 after 11 seasons on the show.

“Tamra is excited to be coming back to the show, especially after feeling the love of the fans from her stint on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip,'” a source told us at the time.

“She can’t wait to get back into the mix on ‘RHOC’ and see how she can shake up the dynamics.”

Heather Dubrow, who also made history when she rejoined the cast after a five-season hiatus, will star alongside her on-and-off good friend. Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson will also continue to star in the OG “Housewives” series.

Bravo has started filming for season 17, but has not yet announced a premiere date or cast.
