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.”
