"The Real Housewives of Orange County" Will Kick Off The Season Airing Five-Days-A-Week On Local Broadcast Stations

Universal City, CA - September 9, 2010 - The breakout hit franchise "The Real Housewives" of Orange County, New York and Atlanta are coming to daytime airing five-days-a-week, starting Monday, September 13.

The nationally syndicated run will kick off with "The Real Housewives of Orange County," seasons one through five, airing consecutively. Following the OC, catch all the drama and jaw-dropping moments from the very beginning of "The Real Housewives of New York" and "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

The ladies strive to live the good life, but in reality, the perfect lives of contemporary women juggling family, friends, and careers aren't always as fabulous as it seems.

According to Nielsen Media research data, season 5 of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" increased 235% in Women 18-49 since its spring 2006 debut on Bravo.
