THE SECOND SEASON OF BRAVO'S HIT DOCU-SOAP 'THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY' DEBUTS TUESDAY, JANUARY 16 AT 10:00 P.M.

ONE-HOUR DOCU-SOAP RETURNS FOR AN ENGROSSING EIGHT-EPISODE SEASON, INTRODUCING A NEW "HOUSEWIFE" AND EVEN MORE DRAMA

NEW YORK, NY - November 13, 2006 - Bravo once again pulls back the curtain on the real-life Peyton Place that is an exclusive gated community in Orange County, CA with the anticipated second season debut of its hit docu-soap series "The Real Housewives of Orange County" on Tuesday, January 16 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The second season will feature 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.

"This season we go back to Orange County to continue to follow the engrossing stories of these real women and their families," said Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo. "Their experiences are filled with humor, heartbreak and conflict as they struggle to find balance and fulfillment in their demanding lives. This series is as much about uncovering the surprising troubles that can come with their privileged lives as it is about the material excesses of the O.C. experience."

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. Think you can keep up?

� 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-fianc�, 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.

Bravo's "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 Bravo 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.

In its first season, "The Real Housewives of Orange County" averaged a 0.7 HH coverage rating, 646,000 total viewers, 503,000 viewers 18-49 and 440,000 viewers 25-54.
