‘Real Housewives’ Cast Shocker: Only 5 Orange County Housewives Remain

The Real Housewives of Orange County has been announced by Bravo, and the show is expected to return for its 10th season this spring. Even though the network announced several Real Housewives shows, the Orange County wives have yet to get an airdate. And it sounds like there could be some changes in the cast.

Many believed that two new wives were joining the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies. The two new wives were supposed to be Meghan King Edmonds and Katie Chadwick Hamilton. And while Bravo hasn’t announced anything, it sounds like these two housewives may not be official housewives if a new picture is to be believed. This morning, a picture surfaced that is causing some questions.

According to a new tweet, the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County will only have five wives. This doesn’t match the stories that two new wives are joining the cast. If Meghan and Katie are two official housewives, that means that two original housewives have gotten the boot. Vicki Gunvalson will probably continue as the original housewife. Other wives include Tamra Barney, Lizzie Rovsek, Shannon Beador, and Heather Dubrow.


According to the Inquisitr, Lizzie Rovsek recently talked about this upcoming season, so she may be a part of it. In addition, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge have also spoken out about the two new additions.

“We have three newbies and they don’t know what the f— they’re doing” Tamra has revealed about the new Real Housewives of Orange County cast members, adding, “They’re gonna come on and go, ‘She’s a liar!'”

Shannon Beador may have questioned whether she should return to The Real Housewives of Orange County, as her marriage faced some serious hurdles last season. It appears they are fine now, but it is possible that she doesn’t want to go back on The Real Housewives of Orange County. As for Heather Dubrow, she has been distancing herself a little from the spotlight.

“I came in not knowing anyone. I came from the scripted world, and I was very uncomfortable doing reality,” Dubrow has revealed, adding, “When I first started the show, I was very buttoned-up and very reserved. It’s really been an evolution for me in the group and on the show.”

In addition, Heather slammed Bravo for harboring a criminal after Teresa Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey was sentenced to 15 months behind bars. Lastly, Jeana Keough has also teased her return to The Real Housewives of Orange County, meaning there could be 5 original wives and 3 friends of the wives.

Who do you think the five housewives are for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County?
