'RHOC' Season 14 Rumored Cast Shake-Up! From Kelly Dodd's Exit, To Gina Kirschenheiter's Firing
We are still months away from Bravo announcing the lineup for Season 14 of the Real Housewives of Orange County . But, after Kelly Dodd threatened to quit the show, rumors have started to fly about another cast shakeup.
At the end of Season 13, the RHOC cast was at war after Vicki Gunvalson accused Dodd of using cocaine, and that is what led to Dodd’s threats of quitting. However, an insider recently told Radar Online that Bravo will be asking everyone in the current cast to come back next season.
“There was such great chemistry between all of the ladies this past season and the fights were so authentic and over-the-top,” said the insider. “All of the girls are being asked to return.”
This means that in addition to Dodd and Gunvalson, Bravo also wants Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter back for another drama-filled season.
However, not every RHOC fan agrees that the cast should stay the same.
On Monday, not long before Gretchen Rossi announced that she and her fiance, Slade Smiley, were expecting their first child, a fan account on Twitter claimed that there were rumors that a former star would be returning to RHOC season.
The story was that Alexis Bellino was in talks to come back, and many fans liked the idea. They also liked the thought of Rossi joining the cast again.
“Yes for the need to bring back [Gretchen Rossi],” one fan wrote. “That show took a nosedive after she left.”
“Andy can we get her a new contract or whaaat?” another asked.
The discussion of Bellino and Rossi possibly coming back led to fans coming up with the cast they would like to see in Season 14 - Dodd, Gunvalson, Kirschenheiter, Bellino, and Rossi. Unfortunately, Beador, Simpson, and Judge didn’t make the fans’ cut.
Both women left the show after Season 8, but with Bellino splitting from her husband and Rossi expecting a baby, both women could definitely bring their own drama again.
However, we are going to have to wait a while before we get any official casting news from the network.
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County will premiere on Bravo sometime in 2019.
