'RHOBH' alum Taylor Armstrong joins 'RHOC' cast

It looked like she had everything, but she wanted more.

Former ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Taylor Armstrong has been cast in the upcoming season of ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County,’ Bravo confirmed to Page Six on Monday.

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

Armstrong has yet to comment on the change. The people were the first to announce the news.

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

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

Page Six exclusively announced in July that Tamra Judge will return to “RHOC” although he was fired in January 2020 after 11 seasons on the show.

“Tamra is thrilled to be back on the show, especially after feeling the love from fans during her time on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’,” a source told Us at the time.
