Who is the new housewife on The Real Housewives of Orange County?

Her name is Fernanda Rocha and she is sure to heat things up.

She was featured last season on the hit Bravo reality show teaching her fitness workout.

“She’s going to be a more controversial character because she’s been married and she’s just got out of a lesbian relationship,” a source told   

Fernanda is bisexual and not shy about her sexuality.  She co-owns Art of Fitness & SPA club in Laguna Beach, California and has also created her own workout DVD and a line of fitness clothing.

But can you really call her a housewife? 

She’s been married before but isn’t any longer, and doesn’t have kids.  My guess is that she was cast to add some controversy and spice to the show.

A Housewives insider said that Bravo is “probably going to use her as more of a villain-type character that will stir the pot like Kim G. But she’s younger, sexier and more controversial.”

Fernanda first appeared last season with her friend Tamra Barney,and is set to star in a more permanent recurring role in Season 6.
