Some contracts went out for Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18, and the word on the street is that Heather Dubrow will return! The news arrived via the Queens of Bravo, who attended Kathy Hilton’s DirectTV holiday party. The account announced, “BREAKING from Christmas at Kathy’s party: Heather Dubrow will return for the next season of #RHOC.”
Another round for Fancy Pants
News of Heather’s return to RHOC comes amid a ton of speculation about her next move. Season 17 wasn’t easy for Heather, and it seemed like maybe she was once again ready to be done with the franchise. Both on-screen and off, Heather made it clear that she wasn’t enjoying her time. During the Mexico trip, she claimed she was “done with the show.” At BravoCon, she talked about the explosive moment.
“I think in that moment I was like, ‘Ah, I can’t do this. I’m done,’” Heather shared. “It was so much, and of course we filmed so much. There was more and more and more that wasn’t even shown. So it definitely took its toll on me.”
There have also been persistent rumors that Heather might make the leap from Orange County to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She has a home in Los Angeles, she’s friends with some of the cast members, and she recently teased that she would “never say never” to switching franchises, should the opportunity present itself. But, for now, it sounds like she’s sticking to holding her orange.
There’s still no word on who else is returning for Season 18, but it’s rumored that everyone was asked back except for Taylor Armstrong. After making the groundbreaking move from RHOBH to RHOC, Bravo gave her the boot after one season. Other chatter suggests Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson are still to receive their contracts.
More RHOC Season 18 casting news will be coming soon. In the meantime, all 17 seasons are streaming on Peacock.
