Heather Dubrow Returns To Real Housewives Of Orange County; Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, & Elizabeth Lyn Vargas Are Gone

It felt like such a pipe dream hoping for a Heather Dubrow comeback on Real Housewives of Orange County. After all, she was very adamant that she wouldn’t film with Kelly Dodd.

She was adamant that she wouldn’t film with Kelly and many viewers were very vocal about refusing to watch the show if Kelly remained a part of the cast after her many questionable remarks about the coronavirus pandemic and other topics. Well, break out the champs and the hexagonal ice cubes, Heather Dubrow is back. And there’s a major shakeup on the horizon. Kelly is out and so are Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas.

A Bravo spokesperson confirmed this news to Variety. Production on Season 16 begins next month.

Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson, will be back. And, apparently “one or two new women will also join the cast” of Real Housewives of Orange County. But, what about Tamra Judge? She was basically an unpaid cast member last season. She was mentioned in practically every episode, which made her more interesting than most of the women who were actually on screen.

I’m not gonna lie, I’m OK with these cast departures, but I do wish there was some camera crew filming Brauwnyn and Kelly’s reactions to their firings lack of contract renewals. Those had to be some major meltdowns.

Now, I’m just waiting to see what Heather thinks of Gina’s condo. And I cannot wait to see Heather’s palatial home we saw her building during her final season.
