The first ladies of Bravo are back for a ninth season, and there are some fresh faces in the "Real Housewives of Orange County" crowd.

New housewives Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovesk are replacing Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Lydia McLaughlin. Tamra Barney Judge, Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow will return for the new season.  

And with new ladies comes new drama!

toofab's Rachel Hoffman sat down with Heather to get the details on everything from her tension-fueled fights with Tamra, Vicki and Shannon to the growing pains of building her dream house. 

The new season seems to put Heather at odds with everybody. "In the beginning of the season, Tamra, Vicki and I were hanging out a lot, which was great. But, the two of them have a long history together, and sometimes I feel like the odd man out. A lot of tension arose from that," Heather said. "A lot shocked me this season. Bringing new friends into a group is difficult."

While there may be some growing pains with the new housewives, Heather also has her hands full with the construction of her dream home. In the first episode, she clashes with her husband Terry over building a beauty salon in the mega mansion. Who wouldn't want that!?

Check out the video above to hear about Heather's return to acting and how she feels about Vicki's boyfriend Brooks Ayers being back in the picture. 

The drama begins on Monday, April 14 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
