Tamra Barney Judge and Heather Dubrow have been targeted in rumors dealing with the Real Housewives of Orange County contract renewals and status of returning next season. There were rumors that Judge was fired, and Dubrow made it clear she’s not jumping up and down about next season after barely getting through this one.
RumorFix claims in its exclusive the two ladies will be asked back on RHOC. This also applies to Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon Beador, and Lizzie Rovsek. Speaking with a production insider, the site shares what their tipster has to say.
“At the current moment, the entire cast is being asked back,” the insider says.
As a related article by The Inquisitr, Tamra and Heather made seemingly final statements during the RHOC Season 8 reunion. What Barney said could’ve been interpreted as parting words.
“I do not know what the future holds for me, but I am glad that I have been able to share my ups and downs with you throughout the years.”
Heather Dubrow, whose husband, Terry Dubrow, is “done” with Real Housewives of Orange County, is a mystery at this point. Will she remain on the show? She, too, implied during the reunion that she may not come back next season.
“I don’t know what my future is with ‘Housewives’ show but I am very grateful for all of the opportunities it’s presented to me and my family. I hope you have enjoyed getting to know us over the past three years and realize we are not defined by moment or a season.”
When it comes to Vicki, her life with boyfriend Brooks Ayers is more than enough drama for one person. Gunvalson is in the headlines non-stop over her relationship with Brooks, which involves fighting and cheating scandals, as well as trust issues. Radar Online reports that Brooks thinks the cheating sting is a publicity stunt. The saga continues long after RHOC wrapped taping the reunion.
The RumorFix source adds that producers are looking for a few specific women as newcomers for next season.
“There will be a new girl and a new friend. They are looking at athletes wives. There is one who plays professional baseball. There have also been talks of Kobe Bryant’s wife being scoped out.”
The real question is, will Tamra Barney Judge and Heather Dubrow come back to Real Housewives of Orange County? The status of their contracts is holding fans in suspense!
