The Bravo gods have answered our (my) prayers — Heather Dubrow is returning to the Real Housewives of Orange County. The news of Fancy Pant’s long-awaited return comes along with some arguably even better news — Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke are OUT for good. No more Kelly Fraud’s nasty comments and total ignorance. Or Braunwyn’s over-the-top narcissism. Both ladies were eyeing for a return, but the fans have spoken. And Boringwin really uprooted her entire life as she knew it for a TV show that doesn’t want her back. What a shame. Oh, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is out after one season, but we hardly got to know her anyway.
The Fancy Pants news is just too much to bear. We’ll finally see the completed Dubrow family mansion. Terry Dubrow, despite duping fans about Heather’s return, will be back on our screens to provide plastic surgery advice and corny dad jokes. And this could lead to a potential Tamra Judge return, but no news has been announced yet. CHAMPS FOR EVERYONE, except maybe Shannon Beador.
The news of Heather’s return came with quite the media frenzy. Braunwyn, of course, made an exit statement via People to milk her relevancy one more time. Fancy Pants, on the other hand, was busy hosting Andy Cohen on her Heather Dubrow’s World podcast to gush about her RHOC comeback. And during the interview, Andy teased at another fan-favorite former cast member returning to another city.
Instagram account @bravobybetches captured the clip. Andy says, “I talked to someone else in a similar situation in another city and they were like, ‘You know what? I’m not going to tell anybody.'” Andy agreed with the mystery wife that she should keep it on the DL. He continued, “They said, ‘No, I’m not. I don’t want anyone’s opinion. I made up my mind and I don’t want anyone telling me not to or why it’s a bad idea or whatever. It’s happening.” Am I the only one with chills?

It feels like freakin Christmas for a Real Housewives fan. What blast from the past could Andy be talking about? Is Dorinda Medley calmed down and ready for a return after her brief hiatus on the Real Housewives of New York? Or what about Tinsley Mortimer, now that she’s a single woman? Dooooorinda wouldn’t like that. I wouldn’t even be surprised if Jill Zarin said “Hiiiiiiii” and came back to the show she helped start.
Outside of RHONY, the possibilities are endless. All I have to say is let’s hope it’s not the worst sister ever Caroline Manzo returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey. Our Jersey girls are doing just fine on their own without the Manzo mess. Real Housewives of Atlanta could use a shake-up whose name is either Phaedra Parks or Sheree Whitfield. Hey, now that Kim Zolciak is done with Don’t Be Tardy maybe she’s even considering a comeback. But something tells me Kroy Biermann wouldn’t approve.
Even though Lisa Vanderpump would drink boxed rosé before returning to her old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stomping grounds, she’s still fighting with the cast as if she was on the show. Might as well let the cameras film it. The shakeup could also be coming to Real Housewives of Potomac, with OG Charrisse Jackson-Jordan ready to bring her champagne room back to the streets of Potomac. While I wouldn’t place any bets on a Monique Samuels return after she burned her bridge with Bravo, never say never.
I could spend hours dreaming about who could be making the long-awaited comeback. But it sounds like Andy and the housewife in question are staying silent until the big news is announced. For now, I’m going to ride my RHOC high that Heather is coming back. And I’ll never be subjected to watching another minute of Kelly or Braunwyn on my screen ever again.
