Real Housewives of Orange County

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives of Orange County

It was a relief when it was announced that Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow was returning to the franchise. You know that Heather will make the series classy and extravagant once again. Elizabeth Lyn Vargas and Kelly Dodd were fired from the show.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke was also axed after two chaotic RHOC seasons. And make no mistake, she was not happy about it. The woman loves a camera! “I’m incredibly sad to not be able to come back to The Real Housewives of Orange County next year,” Braunwyn said. “I loved every moment of being a Housewife and am so proud of my time on the show–the good, the bad, and the in-between.”

Real Housewives of Orange County reunion Kelly Dodd

OK so it’s safe to say that most of us know by now that Kelly Dodd is a damn trainwreck. The fired Real Housewives of Orange County star can’t help but offend anyone and everyone in her path who disagrees with her. Whether it’s not getting the backlash for wearing a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat or throwing low-blows regarding peoples’ appearances, Kelly has proved her inability to be a compassionate, kind person.

And she continues to prove that Bravo made the right move by firing her and bringing Heather Dubrow back to save RHOC. Especially after Kelly accused Heather’s son of giving her COVID, and gave a half-hearted apology to avoid being sued by the Dubrow family lawyers. Maybe if she just learned to just SHUT UP she wouldn’t have to make all of these apology videos to combat her rightfully-owed backlash. Shouldn’t she be focusing on finding a new job for her and her husband Rick Leventhal by now? Or literally finding ANY other somewhat productive way to spend her time.

Kelly Dodd Shades Lala Kent’s Appearance In Now-Deleted Instagram Post

Here we go again — Kelly Dodd, a recently (and finally) fired cast member of the Real Housewives of Orange County, is at it again. This woman truly can’t stop herself from shutting up and not saying and doing the most offensive things she can possibly think of. I guess that’s what happens when you find yourself with a massive following and wayyy too much time on your hands.

Kelly’s fall from grace from RHOC has been anything but graceful. But what did you expect from a woman who seemingly is incapable of feeling empathy for other people or taking accountability for her actions? Thankfully, Heather Dubrow is coming back to save the sinking ship of a show, that people boycotted because of Kelly’s vile actions. And thankfully, Bravo fully attempted to fix its mistakes by firing Braunwyn Windham-Burke too.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives Of Orange County

The Real Housewives of Orange County is back to filming Season 16 with a totally revamped cast. Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas got pink-slipped after the blunder that was last season. Most fans, myself included, were overjoyed that toxic Kelly and Fraudwyn were fired, because they were truly both insufferable. Now we’re left with Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Shannon Beador with a TRIUMPHANT return from Heather Dubrow. Let’s go girls.

To no surprise, Braunwyn and Kelly have not been happy about getting the boot from RHOC. While Kelly is basking in her delusions, Braunwyn is pointing the finger at everybody. She’s mad Andy Cohen didn’t personally call her to tell her she wouldn’t be offered a contract. She believes it was messed up to fire her during Pride month. And, for some reason, thinks she’s the epitome of what makes good TV.

Shannon & Heather in Ireland

The Real Housewives of Orange County are finally filming Season 16 and rumor has it the drama has already started. Kelly Dodd and Branwyn Windham-Burke are OUT and Heather Dubrow is coming back to save the sinking ship of a show. Even Tamra Judge is hinting at a surprise appearance, bringing it back to the good old days.

And if Fancy Pants and Tammy Sue make an RHOC return, Shannon Beador is DEFINITELY not going to be happy. Shannon and Heather have a lot of history — Shannon’s probably still not over HD banishing her from her home. Or the rumors that the Dubrows were trying to “take the Beadors down,” whatever that was all about. And according to Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon discards her friends like a bowl of rotten lemons once they leave the show. And because of that, her once-close friendship with Tamra has turned super sour.

Noella Bergener Real Housewives of Orange County

Real Housewives of Orange County is currently filming its 16thseason. Sixteen years! Wow, who would have thought? RHOC has been through some major changes over the last few years, but it seems like it’s getting a major shake-up this season.

So far, producers are making the right calls for season 16. They’ve sent Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas off in a family van and they’re bringing back fancy pants Heather Dubrow. I believe Heather will bring true opulence back to show. But, let’s not get too ahead of things here. The premise of Housewives may revolve around women of means, but it’s littered with women bordering on financial ruin. Take for instance, Noella Bergener, a former friend of Braunwyn and reported season 16 cast member. She’s apparently comin’ in hot with major debt.

Heather Dubrow Addresses Rumors That She Had Kelly Dodd Fired; Says She Wanted To Make Sure Real Housewives Of Orange County Was Going In A “Helpful, Not Harmful” Direction

I still can’t believe that Heather Dubrow will be back for Season 16 of Real Housewives of Orange County. My biggest Bravo wish came true! I can’t wait to see “Fancy Pants” and her $21 million dollar mansion. I’ll bet it has a champagne fountain.

Of course, three RHOC stars were let go from the franchise. Braunwyn Windham-Burke was handed her walking papers after two tumultuous seasons. Elizabeth Lyn Vargas was also fired. Kelly Dodd’s ouster wasn’t really a shock.

Real Housewives of Orange County Elizabeth Lyn Vargas

Erika Jayne is putting on quite the show. Possibly the biggest show of her life. On the latest episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika continued to weave a tall tale about how her life has unraveled. A car crash, dementia, hidden cash. Her story has all the makings of a Lifetime movie. Or a documentary on Hulu.

But as wild as her tales are, she has plenty of people in her corner. As in, all of her castmates. Only Sutton Stracke  seemed a little put off by Erika’s stories. And we know from the midseason trailer that Sutton only gets more suspicious. Now, it looks like Erika has another housewife in her corner.
