The Real Housewives of Orange County is a one-hour docu-reality series that steps into the lives of five families who live in one of the wealthiest planned communities in America.
The first season follows five real-life housewives who lead glamorous lives in a picturesque Southern California gated community where the average home has a $1.6 million price tag and residents include CEOs and retired professional athletes.
Orange County housewives Kimberly, Jeana, Vicki, Lauri and Jo are used to the good life and will do everything they can to hang on to it. The women each have their own personal story to share and they've granted an all-access pass into their lives, families, friendships, careers and homes.
From diamond parties to Botox sessions to the stress of having a high-powered career, the women take viewers along for the ride and into their real-life dramas that show how life isn't always perfect behind the gates.
Just what lies beneath the surface of this seemingly perfect community?
The women mostly live the good life, but also represent the modern-day version of the happy housewife, which today includes juggling the challenges of a stressful career with a busy family life.
