Shannon Beador and Elizabeth Rosvek Reportedly Joining "Real Housewives of Orange County"
There's only one thing we love more than new faces on "Real Housewives of Orange County," and that's all the new drama we're expecting to see when the show returns with season 9!

As we previously reported, RHOC will feature two newbies as former cast members Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi will be leaving the show along with first-season newbie Lydia McLaughin. Taking their place will be former pageant girl Elizabeth Rovsek and Shannon Beador, who will be joining longtime cast-members Vicki Gunvalson (the only original star on the show), Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow.
So what can we tell you about the newest members of the RHOC family?

According to WetPaint, Shannon is a California native, having grown up in La Jolla before attending USC. Shannon currently lives in Newport Beach's Bonita Canyon with her construction mogul husband David Beador and their three children.

Though her husband is owns a super successful construction company, Beador Construction, Inc, which reportedly generates an annual revenue of #13 million, 49-year-old Shannon is also a self-made millionaire, worth more than $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

As for former pageant girl Elizabeth, who goes by Lizzie, she's a Kentucky native who first competed for Miss Kenturcky Teen USA in 1998 but was beaten by Vanessa Minnillo. However, Lizzie went on to win the Miss Kentucky USA crown in 2002, WetPaint reported.

She attended the University of Kentucky, graduating with a degree in Design, Merchandising and Textiles and later uprooted to California after marrying her Orange County-based real estate guru husband Christian Rosvek.  

Now a mother of two, the 34-year-old glamour girl manages her own luxury swimwear line, Sun Kitten Swimwear by Lizzie, which sells high-end, special occasion designer swimsuits featuring jewel embellishments.

Lizzie is the youngest RHOC member now that 32-year-old Lydia is leaving the show. With such a big age gape, we wonder how Lizzie will fit into the cliquish RHOC cast?

Shannon already seems to have been making friends with her co-stars and has even been spotted hanging out with longtime RHOC cast member, Tamra.

Back in December 2013, Tamra took to her Twitter to announce her new co-star while posting pictures of herself and Shannon at a baseball game. The tweet and pictures have since been deleted.
