The Real Housewives of Orange County - Series 5 Premiere

The series 5 premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County is on tonight January 25, at 8.30pm on Arena.

This quintet - although the line-up has changed over the years - is the original bunch of women to have kicked off the Real Housewives franchise. Since theirs screened in 2006, The Real Housewives of New York City premiered in 2008, then The Real Housewives of New Jersey and The Real Housewives of Atlanta, with the latter premiering in 2008, the former in 2009.

The latest spin-offs are: The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. (not forgetting the forgettable spin-off show from season 1 O.C. housewife Jo De La Rosa called Date My Ex: Jo & Slade), and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (featuring Paris Hilton's aunts, no less) - both these Real Housewives are yet to screen here.

According to TV Fanatic and OK Magazine, Bravo is thinking about expanding their empire to Dubai. In Greece, The Real Housewives of Athens begun airing on Antenna TV in October 2010, while 'The Real Kids Of LA' was later changed to LA Prep, spinoff of NYC Prep.

Phew! Clearly, when you're onto a good thing...

The show's title and introduction alludes to the hit show Desperate Housewives, as well as the now defunct teen drama The OC and touts itself as these two fictional shows' "real-life" counterpart.

It certainly bears no resemblance to my life, clearly... but that's the reason I can't help but be completely addicted.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Series 5 premieres tonight on Arena at 8.30pm, available through Foxtel and Austar.
