Report: Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd Returning to RHOC Season 12

Heather Dubrow will not be returning to season twelve of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but along with Tamra Judge, according to a new report, Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd will be back for next season of the show.

“Vicki and Kelly are going to return,” a source told RadarOnline. “They are just trying to get more money since they know that they bring the drama and RHOC needs their drama.”

Kelly is trying to keep viewers guessing about her return when she tweeted this, “I may come back, but it’s probably unlikely,” she told a follower on Twitter. “I’m not sure yet.”

The cast shakeup comes after Heather Dubrow announced she won’t be returning for the new season of the show.

“If you’re wondering why I’ve decided to not come back, it wasn’t an easy decision,” she said. “You know, it’s hard to walk away from something, first of all, that’s been successful for five years, and truly has given us so much. But I just feel like, right at this particular point in time, a couple of things [changed my mind].”

She continued, “My oldest kids are now teenagers, and I just felt like they need to make their own decision about being on television and exposing their lives, and for me personally, I have some really cool, interesting opportunities that I want to explore. I don’t know where they’re going to go, but I want the opportunity to explore them.”

What do you think of this cast shake up?

    1. me too – I’m out – as if the fake cancer story wasn’t enough then they bring in the psyco – that much crazy is not entertaining

    1. It’s too bad that the shows have all disintegrated to this level. Used to be about the houses and trips and lifestyles and not the constant fighting

    1. The show wasn’t supposed to be “drama” and it wasn’t for the first few years. Kelly the foul mouth psychopath adding to the cancer liar low desperate woman? Good job Bravo… NOT

      1. The Real Housewives franchise is all about the drama. Maybe it wasn’t in the early seasons, but now the show has changed, it’s been more than ten years since the first season, where have you been?? What have you watched?? Hello??Wake the hell up!!

    1. Yes, GIGI, we miss you. Kelly and Viki are foul, vulgar liars. Kelly is one of those who is stuck on about 11 years old. It is NEVER her fault, and any time anything she said or did is mentioned her response is “what about what …….her & her & her did” Waaaaaaaa. They ganged up on me mama, boo hoo poowwr baby. I am done too. Drama means a different thing to me than a few others apparently. Childish, vulgar immature name calling and striking out to hit the person where you KNOW will hurt the most is not “drama.” IMO. It is repulsive attention seeking. I read this cool post from a good friend who was the best friend of my deceased Daughter this morning, one of the 11 things all women should know was ” seek respect, not attention, it lasts longer.” I thought that was a perfect lesson Kelly should learn. No chance though that her or Viki will ever learn it.

  1. “Are you sure you want to delete this series (Real Housewives of Orange County)?

    YES, I’m sure.
    Viewer since season 1 & actually live in Orange County, CA (not THE OC!), they’ve lost me. Done.

    1. I did the same with BH this season for the first time. Rinna was just too much last season and I watched the first 2 shows and it was more of her BS so DELETE. It will be DELETE for the OC too if Kelly is back. I can FF through Shrieky

  2. Bye bye OC. If I want to watch forced drama, I would rather watch real actors in movies and scripted TV and not this. These are grown women who embarrass not only the county and state where they live, but even the entire U.S. by their extreme over the top hurtful lies and antics, and especially while in a foreign country like last season. There is no end to the alcoholic fueled idiocy and nasty attacks. A completely new cast may bring some hope of entertainment that is watchable, but until then, sayonara.

  3. Glad that arrogant snob is gone!! If she thinks she is going to be taken seriously as an actress she is just delusional!

    1. You mean Heather? Why was she an arrogant snob? Because she had class and knew that ladies don’t call either other the C word? I’ll take 10 Heather’s over 1 Kelly or Vicki any day

  4. Vicki will never leave or be fired – whether we like it or not. I’m just happy as can be I won’t be seeing Heather again. Now let’s get rid of Tamra.

  5. Well I’m done with this show. If I want to watch drama & disrespectful people, I can just turn on the news & see what the POTUS has done today. Kelly is a narcissist & throw in a nut case too. Vicki…well I can’t even stand to look at her much listen to her. Last year she should have come back and been humble, apologetic, & take responsibility for her part in the cancer scam. Instead she attached everyone, denied, denied, Denied! I cant even how anyone would want to trust their finances with here. This show needs a whole reboot to make me want to watch it. I want to escape in people who love to travel, live in beautiful homes, and have Fun! Frankly the only one can live up to that lifestyle is Heather. Plus she knows how to behave properly.
    I knew Heather had enough of being around Vicki & especially Kelly last year. People like Kelly bring out the worst in everyone around them. She is poison to anyone around her and she needs some serious mental help. Not just medication, but hospitalized in a treatment center for her own good.

    Say what you will about Heather, but she has never done anything to embarrass her family. She is a class act. I think she would have dumped this show earlier on, but hubby Terry liked the TV time. Now that he has his own show, skincare line, and more well known surgeon. Neither of them need to tolerate or have to tape with these 2 idiots. I wish the best for Heather, but I understand.
    As far as Tamara goes, she’s trying hard to live a Christian life but going around Vicki & Kelly wound test anyone. Plus Tamara & Eddie are really just working class people these days. They both need you work in their business to keep it running which is great. They are not the lifestyles of the rich sort. They too should separate themselves from Vicki & Kelly for their own sanity.

    So goodbye OC…your run is done unless you wipe out the whole cast and give us some fresh people.

    1. I agree with Rain and you, Jadi. I like that you gave Tamra a chance, she doesn’t go around purposely hurting others by choosing to hit the place that will bleed the most. Who is perfect, no one. I didn’t like or dislike Heather so much, it was kinda even steven for me. Kind of boring, but I agree, not humiliating herself, or her family or all women like Kelly and Liar. I will miss Meghan, I liked her this year, she was vulnerable and sensible. She owned up to her mistakes in a very mature way, and still stuck to her opinion. I like that in a person. Oh, wait, I won’t miss her because I won’t watch. With only 2 women I am a fan of, Shannon and Tamra, no reason to watch. Too much zipping, even on Amazon with no adds. So, goodbye to the OC. It was nice for a while.

  6. I love watching my housewives shows…. OC, NY, & Beverly Hills…. I’ll still watch no matter who they fire or don’t fire…

  7. vicki will never leave the show. she feels the show is her show since she is the original cast member and actually was the person they asked to follow around for the show to dispkay how the rich live. I agree. the show was supposed to be about their lifestyle and not about drama but it’s the drama that keeps these shows alive or else it would get boring fast. Vicki was not a nice person from season 1. she displayed a lot of jealousy and was condescending from day 1. hope the money and fame is worth it.

  8. Kelly Dodd is quite obviously mentally unstable. I have no more interest in watching someone’s breakdown than I did with felons frolicing. I’m as done with the OC as I am with Jersey.

    1. My sentiments exactly. I am done with OC, stopped NJ years ago and will ditch them all if this pattern continues. The crazier they are, the more Bravo wants them. It is an insult to my intelligence to watch it and an embarrassment as well, most especially when they visit foreign countries and behave as insane Americans.
