WATCH: Real Housewives of Orange County to Their Neighbor Eric Hovde: “We Miss You!”

MADISON, Wis. — Today, on National California Day, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin released a new video from the Real Housewives of Orange County telling their California friend and neighbor Eric Hovde how much they’ll miss him as he makes his journey to Wisconsin to run for Senate.

California bank owner Eric Hovde owns a $7 million mansion in one of Laguna Beach’s most affluent and luxurious neighborhoods, so some of Orange County, California’s most famous residents wanted to wish their neighbor well and tell him how much they’ll miss him as he tries to buy a Senate seat in Wisconsin.


While avoiding the Wisconsin winter to bask in the California sun or living it up on a yacht in Cabo, Hovde has missed numerous Wisconsin elections, and in the most recent election he bothered to vote in, Hovde had his ballot sent to his Laguna Beach mansion. On the day that the NRSC endorsed Eric Hovde, he was caught at a ritzy party in California for his California bank, where he was throwing money in the air and photoshopping his face onto the poster for the movie “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” And just last week, news broke detailing how extravagant Hovde’s Laguna Beach private gated community is–complete with a private beach, private fire department, and private yacht parking.

The video features:

  • Vicki Gunvalson, cast member, Real Housewives of Orange County seasons 1-14, A.K.A. “OG of the OC”

  • Gina Kirschenheiter, cast member, Real Housewives of Orange County seasons 13-17, licensed real estate agent

  • Alexis Bellino, cast member, Real Housewives of Orange County seasons 5-8 & 18, founder of “Alexis Couture” fashion company.

Full Script of video:

Vicki Gunvalson: “Hey Eric! It’s me Vicki Gunvelson, the ‘OG of the OC.’”

Gina Kirschenheiter: “I know that you are from Orange County, so you are my neighbor.”

Gunvalson: “And you’re leaving for a work adventure in Wisconsin for a year.”

Alexis Bellino: “All of your friends in O.C. are wishing you so well. I know you have a new endeavor happening in, um, Wisconsin.

Kirschenheiter: “Wisconsin! That’s like, a really big change from Orange County, 100%.”

Gunvalson: “You know I’m from the Midwest, love Wisconsin, but you’re leaving now, it’s gonna get really cold there.”

Kirschenheiter: “Cannot wait, just like your friends, for you to come back to Orange County!”

Bellino: “I love you. I’m wishing you well. I hope you have the best first week.”

Gunvalson: “I will miss you so much here in California, and they can’t wait for you to come back. So be back safe. Enjoy your journey. Now hurry up! *Air kiss* And don’t forget to whoop it up while you’re in Wisconsin. Have some cheese curds.”
