Even with three “Real Housewives” cities currently on the air this November, Bravo producers are hard at work filming in the county that started the franchise.

That’s right, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” are currently filming their eighth season. This week, Tamra Barney released photos on Twitter showing who was a part of her bachelorette party trip in Mexico.

Heather Dubrow, Gretchen Rossi and Vicki Gunvalson were all seen in the photo signaling they have been confirmed for another season. Another woman appears in the photos who could be a possible new housewife or the replacement for Alexis Bellino.

There have been mixed reports on Bellino’s role in season eight. In September, the housewife told People Magazine she would not be returning. Instead, she would focus on family and other opportunities. More recently, however, reports show Bellino is filming, just not as often as the other wives.

Bravo says they never comment on casting rumors and have not released a premiere date.
