Bravo has kept the cast list for Season 14 of the Real Housewives of Orange County tightly under wraps. With Vicki Gunvalson the only one to confirm her return next season, everyone else’s fate is still up in the air. Who is in and who is out for the upcoming season?
Gunvalson announced her return during a vacation in Puerto Vallarta with her boyfriend Steve Lodge. The RHOC star teased the new season in a photo of her posing with a young man. In the caption, Gunvalson asked fans, “Where is @stevelodge_oc?… Stay tuned for season 14.”
With Gunvalson returning for another year, the biggest question is whether or not Kelly Dodd will as well. Following an explosive Season 13 reunion, Dodd vowed to quit the reality show if Gunvalson was still a part of the cast.
According to All About The Real Housewives, Dodd eventually softened her stance and is expected to return next season. Although she is still mad at Gunvalson for what she said during the reunion, producers convinced her that another season is in her best interest.
“Vicki is not getting fired and Kelly Dodd is not going to quit,” the source shared. “Kelly got super upset in the heat of the moment. But the higher-ups are coaxing Kelly into staying because they need the drama for next season.”
Apart from Dodd and Gunvalson, there is no telling who else will be back in action. There is a good chance that Shannon Beador will return for another run. Beador has lost an incredible amount of weight since fans lost saw her, and her weight loss journey would be a great storyline for the new season.
Beador has been updating fans about her weight loss on social media. After shedding over 40 pounds, Beador has been sharing photos of her fit body and looks like a completely different person. She even tagged a recent photo with #season 14, which means there is a strong chance she’ll be returning.
As far as Judge is concerned, Bravo has given no indication that they plan on firing her ahead of Season 14. Tamra Judge recently made headlines after her son posted transphobic comments on social media.
