Just when we thought the "Real Housewives of Orange County" ladies were losing steam (i.e. relevance & appeal) -- the new season looks pretty darn promising!

In this sneak peek, we see catfights, boozing and *more* catfights -- oh, and a (maybe) wedding between Tamra Barney and her beau of three years, Eddie Judge.

It also looks like original "O.C." housewife Lauri Peterson will return to the show for season 8, and Alexis Bellino is definitely baaack, Gretchen Rossi is making babies and we finally meet the newest housewife, Lydia Stirling-McLaughlin.

Maybe this season the blonde-ish beauties will outshine their Beverly Hills competition ... maybe.

If you remember, we caught up with Tamra a few months ago when she was shopping for her wedding dress in Beverly Hills alongside her O.C. co-stars ... where she spilled some exclusive details, telling us she's going to wear a "blush" dress for the big day.

As you can see in the promo, Barney is donning white -- so it'll be interesting to see how the wedding does or does not play out in the new season!

Check out the clip above to get a glimpse at Tamra's wild bachelorette party and all of the girl-on-girl fighting. The season premieres April 1, 2013 on Bravo. Will you be watching? Sound off and vote below!
