title iconThe latest RHOC photo with Heather DuBrow has fans reacting to Taylor Armstrong's face

It looks like things are going to get tense in the upcoming 17th season of "Real Housewives of Orange County." The fans are already apprehensive. One of the sources reports Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, Heather Dubrow, and returning cast member Tamra Judge will appear on Bravo's reality show in the upcoming season.

Taylor Armstrong, an alum of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," will also be part of the RHOC cast. During her switch from Housewives to Real Housewives, Armstrong is set to make history. Fans were quick to react to a picture from Armstrong's long-running reality show that surfaced online. Filming may have already begun with Armstrong.

She was pictured posing with DuBrow and her husband, Dr. Terry DuBrow, at a restaurant table in an Instagram photo. Armstrong shot one of the first scenes of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" at the dinner. A former RHOBH star smiles stiffly and pulls her hair back in the pic, posing with the couple. The snap with Armstrong's new co-stars was reacted to on social media by fans who stated that she looked "terrified" rather than happy.

It's already "starting" with controversial DuBrow "priming her next minion," some followers noted in the comments section. Armstrong's fans wrote, "She looks terrified.". It looks like she's scared. The same is true for me," another Redditor wrote. The smile isn't genuine, that's a grimace, said another. She should blink if she's okay, according to several fans.

"Taylor's look seems to indicate that Heather has just told her, 'I am not threatening you, I am promising you," another wrote. Another agreed, "That's exactly what I would do if I had to sit next to Heather.". The picture of Armstrong wasn't recognized by another commenter. Initially, I thought it was Jessica Lange and Terry and Heather,” wrote a fan of the "American Horror Story" star when referring to the two.

While DuBrow appears to have filmed a scene with her, it's unclear what their dynamic will be going forward. Newcomer Taylor seems to be already picking sides when it comes to the O.Gs. Judge teased Armstrong in a Twitter post on August 1 as she teased her friendship with the RHOBH alum.

"Taylor is joining me along for the ride as I return to #RHOC for season 17," Judge tweeted. It's going to be double trouble for you." In addition, Judge teased a new trio on RHOC consisting of herself, Armstrong, and a mystery co-star.

She told her Instagram followers, "The new Tres Amigos are coming soon... stay tunes #RHOC." Originally, Judge, Shannon Beador, and Vicki Gunvalson made up the "three friends," but now that Armstrong has joined, it is unclear who will fill the third spot.
