The past season of Real Housewives of Orange County has not gone well for some of the cast members, and reports are surfacing that Bravo is looking to shake things up before Season 13 starts. Even though the feud between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge has been good for ratings, will Gunvalson be demoted next year?
Gunvalson Had A Very Rough Season 12
Both stars pushed boundaries this past season, and according to The Hollywood Gossip, they may even have crossed some lines. Gunvalson continues to bring up the rumors that Judge’s husband, Eddie, is gay, and it gets on Judge’s nerves every time.
Judge has also had trouble keeping her mouth shut. She continues to talk about her daughter, Sidney Barney, even though Barney has repeatedly asked her mother to not talk about her on camera.
Gunvalson is reportedly not happy about how things are going on RHOC and has threatened to quit the show, but All About The Real Housewives claims the network is demoting the OG of the OC, and no one knows how many episodes she will appear in next season. Vicki Gunvalson is the only member of the cast who has been on the show since episode one of the first season.
Three Of The Ladies Are Reportedly On The Chopping Block
However, Gunvalson’s name is not coming up in the firing rumors, but three cast members may have shot their last scene for the reality show. Sources are claiming that Peggy Sulahian, Megan King Edwards, and Lydia McLaughlin will not be returning next year, and fans don’t seem to be too concerned about their possible departures.
None of them had particularly interesting storylines, with Sulahian just being straight up boring for the majority of season twelve.
Kelly Dodd Will Most Likely Return
Romper reports that Kelly Dodd will be coming back, despite her recent split from husband, Michael. She hasn’t been afraid to open up about her marriage, so sharing a new chapter in her life with fans seems probable. She hasn’t made any indication on social media that she wants to quit, so fans should expect more of her next year.
Producers will not announce official cast changes until December, so it’s possible things could change between now and then. But, a shake-up is expected, and the show may add five new cast members to film along with Vicki Gunvalson and anyone else left standing next season.
