Vicki Gunvalson Confirms Return To ‘The Real Housewives Of Orange County’ And May Be Bringing Jeana Keough With Her

Vicki Gunvalson is a staple in the world of housewives. She has been dubbed the “OG of the OC,” and wears the name proudly. After Gunvalson was made to look foolish last season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, there was some doubt about her return. Brooks Ayers did a number on her relationships with the other women, especially Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador. Gunvalson wasn’t confirmed for a return until just a few weeks ago, and that had fans worried. Now that she has announced her return and the start of filming, there is no telling what is going to happen with Gunvalson and the other women on Season 11.

Rumors have been circulating about Vicki Gunvalson and what will happen on this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Since she is at odds with the rest of the cast, there is some speculation about who she will interact with. Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana, moved back home recently. She will be focused a lot more on family, and possibly her new love interest. According to Reality Tea, Vicki Gunvalson may have gotten Jeana Keough to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County. This has been circulating for some weeks, but it appears that it has some truth to it. Filming just begun for the show, but in the weeks to come look for Gunvalson and Keough out and about filming.

Several of the ladies reportedly tried to get Bravo to out Vicki Gunvalson after the cancer fiasco last season. Shannon Beador was adamant about not returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County if they were keeping Gunvalson. It appears that was an empty threat, as Beador is a returning cast member alongside the rest of the ladies. While this is certainly going to make for good television, it is going to cause a lot of drama when the women all meet in the same room. Tensions have been running high since everything about Brooks Ayers was revealed last summer, and nothing has been done to make amends on either side.

Shannon Beador is bound and determined to make Vicki Gunvalson pay for the disaster on The Real Housewives of Orange County last season. According to Radar Online, Vicki Gunvalson is being asked to take a lie detector test regarding Brooks Ayers’ cancer fiasco. Beador is convinced that her former friend knew he was lying, and she isn’t going to let it go. Gunvalson said she would not take the lie detector test, and just wants everyone to move on. Some believe she is lying, and others believe she was just too insulted her former friends would even ask her to do something like that.

As of now, there is no confirmation from Bravo on when The Real Housewives of Orange County will begin airing. Vicki Gunvalson did confirm she is filming for Season 11, but the other ladies have been less vocal. A lot of the season will likely focus on repairing the broken friendships. Rumors have also been circulating around the newer housewife, Meghan King Edmonds. She was part of the issues Gunvalson had last season — could this be payback?

Fans are anxiously awaiting the return of Vicki Gunvalson and The Real Housewives of Orange County. There are so many unanswered questions left, and plenty of new ones since the drama has played out. Gunvalson is not wanting to address the scandal at all, but the other ladies will make sure she never lives it down. Look for the new season to begin airing sometime in late spring or early summer. Vicki Gunvalson will once again be in the hot seat, and anything can happen with this group of ladies.
