Insiders tell The ENQUIRER when the seventh season of the "Real Housewives of Orange County" preems, there'll be a brand new face, HEATHER DUBROW- AND she’s not a blonde!

Heather is no stranger to TV since she's a former television actress who was known as Heather Paige Kent, from 2000- 2002 when she starred in the CBS TV drama That’s Life as Lydia DeLucca.

She’s been married to famed  Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow since 1999. 

Dr. Terry's no stranger to reality TV either — he was one of the plastic surgeons on ‘The Swan’ and ‘Bridalplasty.’

Nowadays, Heather lives in Newport Beach, CA with her husband and four children.

Meanwhile, Orange County Housewife, Peggy Tanous told The ENQUIRER, “I declined Bravo’s offer to return to the show. The atmosphere was just too toxic.’

Ironically, Peggy was the only ‘Housewives’ from last years cast that didn’t resign.

A production insider told The ENQUIRER, “It’s going to be interesting to see which side Heather chooses — either Gretchen and Alexis’ or Vicki and Tamra.

"No matter which side she chooses, I’m sure there is going to be fireworks and drama.”

Bravo is currently lensing the newest season scheduled to air early next year.

POP FYI: Heather was named "Miss Congeniality" at the 1989 Miss New York State Pageant.
