The upcoming Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County is going to be very different. Gone are two of the tres amigas. Last season, the “OG of the OC,” Vicki Gunvalson, was demoted to be a Friend of the Housewives. After having a melt-down during the reunion, she quit after she learned that she would not be getting her orange back. But don’t worry–Vicki is getting her own podcast.
Tamra Judge also walked away after she was only offered three episodes to complete her storyline. That is less than a demotion. Ouch! Now there is only one amiga left–Shannon Beador. And if Shannon returns, it looks like she will be spending a lot of time with Kelly Dodd.
According to HollywoodLife, Kelly confirmed her return for Season 15 on Instagram. She captioned a photo with some of the the crew, “Started filming today!” RHOC co-star Braunwyn Windham-Burke was also shown on the set. In the comments section, Braunwyn’s mother, Dr. Deb asked, “What will this season bring?” Kelly replied, “You my love.” Kelly later deleted the post.
Shannon and Kelly fought a lot last season. Shannon knew about the vile sex train rumor that Vicki and Tamra spread about Kelly. At the wellness retreat, Kelly smacked a bowl on Shannon’s head with a mallet. Fearing the worst, hypochondriac Shannon and Tamra decided to take Shannon to the hospital.

OK! Magazine reported that a fan questioned Kelly on Instagram about how she planned to “deal” with Shannon. Kelly responded by posting a screenshot of the
comments section from a recently deleted Instagram Story. “I’m done with Shannon! How are you going to deal with her?” one fan asked.
“Same way I have with the other 5 that got fired!! We will see,” Kelly replied. Kelly was of course mentioning former Orange County Housewives Vicki, Tamra, Meghan King Edmonds, Heather Dubrow, and Peggy Sulahian. All these ladies exited the show since Kelly grabbed her orange.
Is Kelly insinuating that she was somehow involved in all these RHOC stars ditching the show? Slow down, girl–you don’t have that much power.

Another Instagram fan asked if either Tamra or Vicki could return, who would Kelly choose? Kelly responded, “Can’t pick!! What’s the lesser of two evils … Vicki is the lesser.” That should make Vicki feel really good about herself.
I thought that maybe we would see the softer side of Kelly now that she is engaged to Rick Leventhal. Hopefully we will get to see the couple a lot during the season. But Shannon better buckle up if she is coming back. Season 15 looks like it will be a bumpy one for her without Tamra and Vicki.
TELL US- ARE YOU GLAD THAT KELLY WILL BE BACK FOR SEASON 15? DO YOU THINK THAT SHE WILL FIX HER RELATIONSHIP WITH SHANNON?
