Real Housewives adds (real) lesbian cast member

The Real Housewives of Orange County is adding a new cast member, and she is a lesbian–not a pretend one like Danielle Staub or Kim Zolciak, nor is she bisexual, like some reports have claimed.

Brazilian fitness trainer Fernanda Rocha told the National Enquirer, “I’m the real thing.” She dismised Danielle and Kim as having a “faux lesbian experimental stage.”

E! News reports that she “isn’t a main Housewife, but is set to be one of the often seen side characters” and “won’t make her debut as a series regular until March.”
