Former Real Housewives Of Orange County Stars: Where Are They Now? [Part 2]

Thanks to a new article from Us Weekly, we are getting an update on how former Real Housewives of Orange County stars are doing since they left the show. This list only focuses on former full-time cast members, so there will be no updates on "Friends of the Housewives." Check it out below!

Alexis Bellino
Alexis joined the cast of RHOC in season 5, which aired in 2009. She left the series after three years ahead of season 9. The mother of three became a topic of conversation at the season 10 reunion after Alexis wrote an email to Andy Cohen accusing Tamra Judge of making a “mockery” of after Tamra got baptized on the series. After exchanging nasty texts, Tamra told Cohen on Watch What Happens Live in 2016 that the two women have made amends.

Since her exit from RHOC, Alexis has split from her husband, Jim, after 13 years of marriage in June 2018. According to the court documents, Jim filed for divorce and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and is seeking spousal support. Shortly after the divorce news broke, Alexis found herself in the news again when Jim threatened to sue Tamra and Shannon Beador for allegations made about their relationship, including saying Jim is “going to jail” and alleging that “people get paralyzed” at Jim’s trampoline park business, according to TMZ. Jim and Alexis denied any “ill will” or “bad blood” between the two.

"It's important to us that you know we made this choice together, with love, and as the best decision for our children's future," the former couple said in a joint statement to Us Weekly. "We hold one another in the highest regards as spouses, and especially as parents."

Gretchen Rossi
After four seasons on RHOC, Gretchen left the series in 2013 ahead of season 9. While she made a brief cameo during season 12, Her focus has shifted to becoming a mother. The handbag designer has opened up on multiple occasions about her IVF journey with her fiancé Slade Smiley, who is Jo De La Rosa’s ex.

“It was a very, very difficult process for me. A lot harder than I had anticipated,” the former reality star told Us Weekly in February 2018. “The first time that we did it, we actually had 14 embryos that six hours before we were going to implant them, or one of them in me, we lost all of them.” As for her relationship with Slade, Gretchen told the publication back in June 2018 that she is “thankful [she has] an amazing partner to go through [IVF] with.”

Since leaving the Bravo hit reality show, she and Smiley appeared in the first season of WE tv's Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, where she labeled herself as the "white Oprah."

Heather Dubrow
Heather was a series regular on RHOC for five seasons, joining the cast in season 7. After her departure in 2016, she returned to her acting roots and guest-starred on an episode of Freeform’s Young & Hungry in 2017. Heather also launched two podcasts, "Heather Dubrow’s World" and "Dr and Mrs. Guinea Pig" with her husband, Terry, with whom she continues to raise their four children. And while fans got a glimpse inside Heather’s infamous home, which was under construction for the majority of her time on the series, on her YouTube channel, she has yet to show it off in its entirety.

Terry did, however, tease chateau Dubrow during an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish in June 2018: “So the house has been done for two-and-a-half years. Heather always says, 'Let's go on vacation.' I go, 'I don't want to go on vacation. My house is like a resort — except my house is bigger.' It's perfection. It's 22,000 square feet. It's got a 22-seat movie theater. It's my haven. Heather has a show called Heather's Closet on YouTube which shows her closet ... We're waiting for the right time and moment to bring the house out. What Heather's done to that house is so interesting and so cool. We do want to share it with everybody. We're just waiting for the right time. The house is ridiculous."

Heather also was the host of Botched's after show called Botched: Post Op, and has since written two books with her husband  Dr. Dubrow, one which is scheduled to be released later this year.

Lizzie Rovsek
Lizzie was a full-time Housewife for season 9 and switched to a friend role for season 10. She left the show before season 11 started filming. After her exit, Lizzie filed for divorce from her husband of eight years, Christian Rovsek, in December 2017. Despite the filing, Lizzie teased a reconciliation with the father of her two children when she shared an Instagram photo kissing him on the cheek during a trip to Paris in April 2018.  She also continues to work on her swimsuit line.

Meanwhile, her son Preston was recently diagnosed with dyslexia and is enjoying a summer camp that helps to improve his reading skills. Lizzie remains friendly with many cast members including Peggy Sulahian, Peggy Tanous, Lydia McLaughlin, Kelly Dodd, Vicki Gunvalson, Gretchen Rossi and newbie Emily Simpson, according to E! News.

Lydia McLaughlin
After exiting RHOC after one season in 2013, Lydia shocked fans by returning for another season ahead of season 12. She left the series for a second time in February 2018 after just one year. Lydia opened up about her decision to leave the Bravo hit reality series.

“The decision to film and sign on for season 13, like my husband and I were talking a lot and so we included our kids in the conversation and we did a family vote and I was kind of on the fence … obviously they would support me if I really decided to do it again, but I just felt like that was a really good indicator of maybe just the stress it puts on them,” she told Us Weekly, referring to her husband, Doug, and their three sons: Stirling, Maverick and Roman. Since her second departure, Lydia frequently updates her fashion and lifestyle blog and still works on Nobleman magazine with Doug.

Meghan King Edmonds
Meghan joined the series for season 10 in 2015 and exited after three seasons. She announced her departure in January 2018 with a lengthy blog post, telling fans that she wanted to focus on her family. Meghan and her husband, Jim Edmonds, welcomed twin boys, Hayes and Hart, in June 2018. “Hayes is so chill. If he’s ever fussy, he just needs to burp and that’s it. Hart is like a wild man and he wants to be held all the time. He’s really good too,” Meghan told Us Weekly at the time, adding that she still texts former costar Tamra Judge. Meghan and Jim are also parents of daughter Aspen.

Peggy Sulahian
Peggy made history as Bravo’s 100th Housewife when she debuted on the premiere of season 12 in 2017. Sulahian revealed in February 2018 that she was not returning for season 13 of the Bravo hit reality series.

“What an exciting experience it was to be part of The Real Housewives of Orange County!” she told Us Weekly at the time. “It was an honor to be the 100th housewife and to be part of the Bravo family. I am extremely proud of being the first Armenian-American Housewife and sharing my culture with the world.” Since her departure, Peggy has launched a tease spray for hair and celebrated her 23rd wedding anniversary with her husband, Diko, with whom she shares three children: Giovanna, Gianelle and Koko.
