Real Housewives of Orange County was filled with drama this season. The unthinkable happened when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted to being a Friend of the Housewives. Her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, even popped the question. But nothing distracted Vicki from trying to grab her RHOC orange back. She brought up a rumor (along with Tamra Judge’s help) that co-star Kelly Dodd was a participant in a sex train. Stay classy, Tamra and Vicki.
Emily Simpson dealt with her
unfeeling sarcastic and cold husband, Shane Simpson. She also weathered a bumpy period with her bestie, Gina Kirschenheiter. Gina got a DUI. She later reconciled with her husband, but the off-camera reunion was short-lived. According to documents obtained by The Blast, Gina alleged that Matt Kirschenheiter choked and hit her in June of 2019. The couple have finalized their divorce.
Tamra, for the most part, was just being Tamra. She lied to all her fellow Housewives while stirring up drama. Her passionate make-out sessions with newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke caused Vicki to lose the last amount of sanity she had left. And threesome enthusiast Braunwyn made it known that she is very attracted to Tamra.
Now that the reunion is over, it is time to look ahead to Season 15. Don’t get too comfortable, ladies. HollywoodLife reported that Andy Cohen stated to expect cast changes during an interview on Sirius XM’s Jeff Lewis Live. “Andy’s comments made them all nervous and they were told a while ago a cast shake-up was coming. All of the ladies [of ‘RHOC’] are saying they’re confident they’re coming back, but nobody knows for certain,” a production insider told HollywoodLife. Let the guessing game commence!
“They will be notified in a few weeks, but nobody knows who’s in and who’s out quite yet. The reunion just ended so it will be looked at in the new year but they’re always interviewing new ladies and they’ve got their eye on a couple, it’s just still too early to tell what’s exactly happening,” the source stated. “Everyone’s just waiting though some of the ladies have been asked to film things in their lives here and there since filming wrapped officially just in case they are asked back.”
Apparently at this point, no one wants to turn in their orange. The source continued, “Nobody wants to go anywhere and the ladies would find a way to film together if they had to. Vicki wants to be full-time again very, very badly but she doesn’t want Kelly on, neither do Tamra or Shannon. It got very bad at the end of filming, but Vicki would put her differences aside to be back full-time as would Kelly and Tamra,” the insider added. “They all love doing the show.”
Of course, Vicki went way off the rails at the reunion. She attacked Braunwyn’s lifestyle and denied that Housewives ever locked lips on the show that she created. Cue the footage of ladies locking lips and getting naked from previous seasons! Andy called Vicki out on her comments, and her spectacular melt-down backstage may have cost her a place on RHOC.
