‘RHOBH’ alum Taylor Armstrong joins ‘RHOC’ cast

It may look like she had it all, but she wanted more.

Former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong has been cast as a “friend of” on the next season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” Bravo confirmed to Page Six on Monday.

Armstrong, who starred on “RHOBH” beginning in 2010 for the first three seasons, will make “Housewives” history as the first cast member to switch cities within the franchise.

People were first to report the news.

The reality star moved to Orange County, Calif., upon marrying her husband, John Bluher, in April 2014.

Armstrong made her reality TV comeback when she: starred on “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club,” which recently finished airing on Peacock.

Armstrong is the second “Ex-Wife” who was able to use the spinoff as a means of proving their worth to return to TV full-time.

Page Six exclusively broke the news that July Tamra Judge will return to “RHOC” despite being fired in January 2020 after 11 seasons on the show.

“Tamra is thrilled to come back to the show, especially after feeling the fan love from her stint on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip,'” a source told us at the time.

“She can’t wait to get back in the mix on ‘RHOC’ and see how she can shake up the dynamic.”
