The Real Housewives of Orange County 2
eReality (Openview 108)
The Real Housewives of Orange County follows a group of sophisticated women and their families who lead glamorous lives in a picturesque Southern California gated community in Orange County.
The Orange County "housewives" are accustomed the good life and will do everything they can to hang on to it.
They each have their own personal story to share, from surviving an ugly divorce to choosing a career over a life of leisure, and they've granted an all-access pass into their lives, families, friendships, careers and homes.
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.
The series once again pulls back the curtain on the real-life Peyton Place that is an exclusive gated community in Orange County, CA with the second season debut of the docu-soap series.
The second season features original real-life "housewives" Jo De La Rosa, Vicki Gunvalson, Jeana Keough and Lauri Waring.
Joining the cast of personalities this season is Tammy Knickerbocker, a natural beauty who previously was among the wealthiest families in the community, but today lives a more modest lifestyle as a divorced mother of three.
The women's lives are moving fast as they navigate their various family, career and community dramas.
Their lives intertwine in ways you won't believe, until you drop in for a visit.
Secrets will be revealed and hearts will be broken as the women embark on new adventures and experiences, all set against the staggering wealth of this Orange County community.
They are still living the good life, and with their newfound notoriety, they are more determined than ever to keep up appearances in one of the most stylish communities in the country.
Jo De La Rosa is living at lightening speed and is increasingly drawn to the bright lights of Los Angeles.
She is still torn between being young and partying and devoting time to her relationship with her ex-fiancé, Orange County resident Slade Smiley.
Vicki Gunvalson is still going a million miles a minute and remains at the top of her game with her lucrative insurance business.
Her two kids are out of the house and at college, and although Vicki tries her best to let them make their own mistakes, her expectations for them still get the best of her.
Jeana Keough is hotter than ever as one of the community's most successful realtors, selling multi-million dollar homes and earning staggering commissions.
She is working out marital issues with her often-absent husband, ex-major league baseball player Matt Keough, and attempts to keep her three wild teenagers in line.
Tammy Knickerbocker is the newest "housewife" and is a hard-working single mother of three struggling to get back on her feet after a divorce and losing much of her family's fortune.
She previously lived in one of the biggest homes in the community, and is now renting what in Orange County's standards is a more modest million-dollar abode.
Her children are also struggling to come to grips with the changes in their family.
Lauri Waring has a new man in her life, George, who pampers her with lavish gifts and adventures.
George has four children from a previous marriage, and Lauri is learning to deal with the stress of blending two families.
Her oldest daughter, Ashley, is floating along, while Josh struggles to get on the straight and narrow path.
In the Season 2 premiere, "The Housewives are Back!": Slade is green with envy as Jo heads off to a Playboy party at the mansion with her girlfriend JJ.
Jo and Slade are back together as a couple, but both are mistrusting of each other, especially since Slade's romantic encounter with Lauri when Jo and Slade were broken up.
Lauri is ecstatic after meeting George, the man of her dreams, who is a wealthy businessman in Orange County with four kids.
Both families are spending time together and getting to know one another, while Josh is away at a special residential program working on his behavioral and substance abuse problems.
Jeana is excelling as a real estate agent in the community while Shane struggles with a recent back injury, which is keeping him from playing professional baseball.
As usual, Kara and Shane fight while Jeana's husband Matt tries to keep his cool. Kara and kid brother, Colton, bond after the death of their dog, Shire.
Jeana has lunch with her girlfriend, Tammy, who needs a new place to live in the community after her house was severely damaged by a flood.
She is a single mother of three who just ended a 10-year relationship.
Vicki tries to give her son, Michael, a taste of working in the "real world" after he slacked off all summer and grated on Vicki's nerves with his defiant behaviour.
Also, Vicki hires a new staffer to hold down the fort and learn the insurance business.
Vicki meets up with her mother at dinner and is reminded as to why she constantly craves affection and affirmation.
Meanwhile, Kimberly is leaving Orange County with her family and moving to Chicago.
After a skin cancer scare with her son, Travis, Kimberly and her husband decided to move the kids to Chicago.
