Jeana Keough hinted at her return to The Real Housewives of Orange County last week, and days later, she reportedly began filming with longtime cast member Vicki Gunvalson.
On January 21, Keough took to Twitter, where she revealed she had attended a dinner party at Gunvalson’s home.
Little dinner party at Vicky’s last night, very fun and great to see Brooks looking so healthy!

Hours later, Gunvalson confirmed the dinner party was filmed for The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10.

As the Inquisitr reported last week, rumors of a Jeana Keough return first began earlier this month.
“Bravo has reached out to Jeana,” an insider confirmed to 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. [Jeana 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!”
When fans last saw Jeana Keough on the show, she and Gunvalson weren’t on great terms. However, after the scene was filmed, the former best friends made amends and have been friends ever since.
“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.”
As for the role Keough would play, Radar’s source said she’d likely return to being an official housewife.
“Since the show was initially built around Jeana, it wouldn’t make sense for her to be a [part-time cast member]. Hopefully they would want to honor her legacy in the franchise and give her a full-time position.”
Also returning to the show are Tamra Barney, Shannon Beador, Lizzie Rovsek, and Heather Dubrow. As fans will recall, Beador and Rovsek were brought aboard the series for Season 9, following the exits of former cast members Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi.
Jeana Keough appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County from Season 1 until Season 5. She’s also made a handful of guest appearances in the seasons since.
