Danielle Gregorio won’t be a part of the upcoming season 10 cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
As the Inquisitr reported earlier, Gregorio was recently spotted celebrating the birthday of Lizzie Rovsek. However, her presence at Rovsek’s bash doesn’t mean she’s coming back to the show. In fact, according to her rep, she won’t be featured as a cast member on season 10.
In a statement to Inquisitr, Danielle Gregorio’s rep, Hunter Frederick, explained the situation.
“While [Danielle Gregorio] was present at Lizzie Rovsek’s birthday party (they have been friends for years), Danielle did not want to return to RHOC this season and therefor will not be.”
At the end of last month, weeks into filming on The Real Housewives of Orange County season 10, Us Weekly reported that all full-time cast members from season nine were returning. Among those members were Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow and Rovsek. In addition, two new wives will be a part of season 10.
“The new women, Meghan King Edmonds and Katie Chadwick Hamilton, are not only residents of the plush West Coast community, but they also happen to be married to pro athletes. Edmonds is the wife of former MLB player and current Fox Sports announcer Jim Edmonds. Other newcomer Hamilton, meanwhile, is the wife of MLB player Josh Hamilton.
“They will join regulars Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge (nee Barney), Heather DuBrow, as well as season 9 newbies Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Rovsek and Shannon Beador. Gunvalson has impressively been with the [Real Housewives of Orange County] — the very first installment of the entire Housewives franchise — since season one.”
Jeana Keough is also reportedly in talks to make a season 10 return to the show after taking the last few seasons off. According to a report, the network reached out to its former star in hopes of reuniting her with her former co-stars.
“Bravo has reached out to Jeana,” an insider told Radar Online on January 13. “They have asked her what is going on in her life with the hopes of understanding what a potential storyline for her could be.”
“[Keough] has had lots of changes going on in her life. Her daughter recently got married, her oldest son is dating someone new, and she has two exchange students that live with her and keep her busy! Vicki and Jeana are still good friends. Vicki has made it publicly known on social media that she would love Jeana to come back, and the two definitely would have a great relationship.”
