Nope. Their faces haven't exploded yet.
Real Housewives of Orange County, the show that keeps on chugging like the train wreck it is, is back for season 7, and this time, it delivers its biggest twist yet -- a non-blonde! When the series airs at 9 p.m. on Feb. 7, we'll meet the newest cast member, dark-haired former actress Heather Dubrow from Pelican Hill.

, Tamra Barney
, Gretchen Rossi
and Alexis Bellino
are returning to the show. (Peggy Tanous is out

"At the end of the day, I think we're starting to like each other," Gunvalson says. "Maybe not."
