Out with the OG, in with the newbie! Vicki Gunvalson is not going to be happy to find out that the new star of Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 15 is going to be Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Now that the OG of the OC has announced she is leaving the show after 14 seasons – and Tamra Judge is also leaving after 12 seasons – Windham-Burke is going to be the new face of Orange County.
During her first season on RHOC, Windham-Burke grinded Gunvalson’s gears so badly that the two got into it during the Season 14 reunion. Gunvalson called Windham-Burke “trashy” because she didn’t like that the mom-of-seven shared a kiss with Judge in front of Bravo cameras.

Merry Christmas!! My favorite filming this season was when @kellyddodd and I took her @Pedego bike around our neighborhood, I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard ever, so when I reached out to them to surprise Sean this morning I was so excited when they said they had a bike that work for all 4 kids, I was ecstatic !!! Thanks you for making Christmas morning magical for @seanwindhamburke this year! You guys are the best!!!! #pedego #superdad #christmassurprise #beachliving #havekidswillride
Gunvalson screamed at Windham-Burke, telling her to do those things off-camera. She said that she started RHOC, and “we don’t do that.” But, it looks like Windham-Burke will get the last laugh, as she is the show’s new star and Gunvalson is gone.
According to Radar Online, Gunvalson and Judge quit RHOC because of their demotions from full-time status to friends of the show and massive pay cuts. Bravo is ready to take the show in a new direction and “skew younger.” Windham-Burke is just 42, while both Gunvalson and Judge are in their fifties.
“Braunwyn is going to be the star of the show now,” revealed an insider. “They’ve recruited her friends in the casting pool to build a clique around her. She’s willing to do and share things that the other women of the upper echelon in the OC aren’t willing to share. The producers said her new house is definitely RHOC material.”
The Barefoot In Heels blogger has been extremely open about her private life during recent interviews, including the fact that she and her husband Sean enjoy threesomes with “hot” girls from time to time. He says that it’s not just about looks, but chemistry.
Braunwyn says there are rules when it comes to her and Sean’s threesomes. She describes a threesome with another guy as “Eww,” and she added that it can’t be with close friends.
In addition to her open marriage, Windham-Burke also has a lot going on with her two nannies and seven kids – Jacob, Rowan, Bella, Caden, Curran, Koa, and Hazel. Bravo likes the fact that she is so open to sharing her life with fans, and that’s why she will be a big part of Season 15.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County will return to Bravo later this year.
