The future of the Real Housewives of Orange County is nothing short of a mystery. Last season featured a cast that ranged from boring to downright toxic. Many fans were boycotting Season 15 mainly due to insensitive comments Kelly Dodd has made about the coronavirus pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement and virtually any other topic that no one asked her opinion on. Kelly has tried since Season 11 to be the no fs given funny girl, but she’s always been at another level of nasty that isn’t remotely laughable.
Bravo was taking its sweet time to decide who would appear on RHOC Season 16. There are rumors that Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow might make a comeback, but we’ll have to see it to believe it. Vicki Gunvalson is probably dying for a return but after she burned her last bridge with the network, the odds are not in her favor. Most fans really just want Kelly and/or Braunwyn Windham-Burke to get the boot, as they both do too much and make fans cringe every time they appear on our screens.
Bravo has been full speed ahead with production on other Real Housewives cities, but news about RHOC has been pretty quiet. Until now. Instagram account @bravobybetches posted a screenshot of an interaction Covid Dodd had with a fan. The fan asked if Kelly left the show, to which she responded, “you’ll find out in a week” with the heart eyes emoji.
The emoji choice is particularly spine-chilling because it sounds like she’s due for a return. On the bright side, it might mean that Braunwyn is out, since Kelly refuses to film with her again. Looks like Tammy Sue might be right — Kelly will never really be punished for her bad behavior by the network. But brand sponsorships, that’s another story.
But a return from Kelly would likely be the nail in the coffin for RHOC. So many fans ditched the show last year, and if Season 16 is a repeat, there’s no hope for a return. And it’s a shame since OC was the city that started it all. And it’d be a bummer for Kelly Dodd to be the one to bring it down with her horrible behavior that’s rubbed off on everyone, including her own dog.
Let’s all just hope that Kelly is trying to use up the last moments of her 15-minutes of fame with this teaser and that Fancy Pants will take her place. Please, Bravo, I’m begging you.
