Katie Hamilton and her husband, MLB player Josh Hamilton, signed a deal with Bravo to appear on the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. However, according to season 10 promotional material, including the series’ photos and trailer, the couple don’t appear to be seen much at all. So, what gives?
On June 7, the O.C. Register offered the following cast update to readers.
“We had expected two new housewives. Although Bravo never discusses casting of its reality series in advance of the seasons, it was widely reported by celebrity news sites that Katie Hamilton, wife of former Angels player Josh Hamilton, would also join the cast. However, the couple’s divorce and Josh Hamilton’s drug relapse and subsequent trade to the Texas Rangers apparently led Katie Hamilton to withdraw.”
When Katie Hamilton joined the series several months ago, she and Josh appeared to be in a happy marriage. Unfortunately, just weeks later, things took a drastic turn for the worse, and, after an alleged relapse on cocaine, Josh filed for divorce. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Josh’s divorce filing occurred in February, but was kept secret for months. In the paperwork, via Dallas Morning News, Josh outlined a number of requests, including those listed below:
“Prohibit her from using the Maserati and 1972 Chevrolet Blazer in his possession; prohibit her from ‘hiding’ the children from him; prohibit her from making disparaging remarks against him or his family; prohibit someone who has an intimate relationship with her from staying in the same home as the children overnight.”
In early March, Yahoo! Sports released the following information in regard to Katie Hamilton’s husband’s reported relapse.
“Hamilton has told people his latest spiral began around Super Bowl weekend after a fight with his wife. Because he cannot carry cash or credit cards, Hamilton wrote himself a check to cash. He wound up at a strip club and used cocaine.”
Since Katie Hamilton and her husband split, she has been focused on their four kids. As her limited role on the upcoming Real Housewives of Orange County season 10, she has remained silent, failing to participate in any cast-related events. Katie Hamilton was also absent during the season 10 finale filming, which happened weeks ago in Orange County.
For more of Katie Hamilton and the rest of the women, tune into The Real Housewives of Orange County season 10, starting tomorrow night at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
