Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County will soon begin its 15th season on Wednesday, October 7, at 9 p.m. ET. And this season, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas has been announced as the newest cast member to join the reality TV series.

If the trailer is any indication of what's to come, it's going to be a juicy season with the addition of Elizabeth.

Here are 6 things you need to know about the newest RHOC star.

Elizabeth works for an online music company.

She's the CEO of Edge Music, but her business has been struggling recently, per Us Weekly.

“Edge Music was a failure,” she said via Instagram Stories in July. “It’s not quite a failure yet but it’s on its way. I’m gonna pivot my life to a new direction to generate revenue—you know from things that I acquired—I can repurpose and you know.”

She's creative.

According to her website, Elizabeth describes herself as curious and creative.

"I’m an explorer, dreamer, developer, thinker and so much more. Every project I’ve taken on was guided by my curiosity, creativity and diligence. I use this space to showcase my current and past work, to detail upcoming plans and to make my presence felt in the world. I’m constantly changing and evolving, so what you see here today might not be here tomorrow!"

Elizabeth loves animals.

Elizabeth works with the We Care Rescue Ranch, which offers no kill animal rescue assistance, according to Bravo.

And she has her own pup.

Elizabeth has a gorgeous Siberian Husky named Coda, who shows up all over her Instagram (and has a private account of his own).

Elizabeth recently finalized her divorce.

During season 15, Elizabeth's divorce from ex-husband Bernt Bodal is one of her main story lines. She confirmed in July that the divorce paperwork was finalized, according to Us Weekly.

“You know, I don’t know how I’m feeling today. I’m excited but I’m sad and I—it’s the end of an era—I was with the guy for 20 years. 17 years but divorcing for three,” she told fans via Instagram Stories. “20 years total of my life and I’m happy but it’s a failure. …I paid an arm and a leg to get divorced and to get what I thought I needed…and here we are transitioning to a new phase in my life and I’m excited.”

She now has a boyfriend.

In the trailer, viewers learn that Elizabeth is now dating a man named Jimmy. “Jimmy and I have a very intimate relationship, we just don’t have sex,” she says in one clip.
