Ummm. none. I have lived here my whole life and anyone I have seen who is famous has been in LA, and even then I can count them on one hand.
If you go looking for them I am sure you can find them, but who has time for that?
I have never seen anyone famous here in OC. And I wouldn't really count the people from Real Housewives in that catagory. Desperate,yes. Famous, not so much. And far from "REAL".

I agree that the housewives aren't celebrities... They sure think they are though!

Reggie Jackson used to be pretty visible when he played for Angels
Saw Dick Dale more than once
and that guy from Eight is Enough and Charles in Charge, but I can't remember his name. He's short.

My partner saw Gene Simmons in an expensive car (by CA standards) in the Ralphs parking lot at the corner of 17th/Irvine Ave. (Westcliff area of Newport Beach)....and he also saw Sharon and Kelly Osbourne at the Bank of America off of Dove near the airport in Irvine.

I saw Paul Teutul Sr. and Jr. from the Orange County Chopper show at the Irvine Marriott in the lobby a couple of years ago.

Trivia: That same Ralph's at the corner of 17th/Irvine Ave is where John Wayne bought groceries and he had a line of credit with the store. It wasn't Ralphs back then...it was called something like "Fresh Market" or something like that. Nobody else could do that. That was my supermarket to shop so I always thought it was cool. He had a house on Lido Isle. If you take one of the boat cruises, they will sometimes point out the house he had. In fact, his picture is on the wall with a group of people at Hoag Hospital. (It covers the entire wall).

Mostly current and retired athletes from the Angels and Ducks. If you are looking for movie stars go to LA.

I swear I saw him riding down 7th Street in Long Beach (near PCH) a couple of months ago. That mustache and scowl are very distinctive.

I saw Guy from food channel's Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives in John Wayne Airport last year yaking it up with a couple of pilots.
