EXCLUSIVE: RHOC Cast Holdup Revealed
For a long time now, there have been rumors flying rampantly about who will be on season 12 of The Real Housewives of Orange County. While Heather Dubrow already announced she’s leaving and we heard Meghan King Edmonds won’t be back either, people are curious about the rest of the cast.
We have exclusively learned from a production insider why there’s been so much hold up in terms of the women signing on.
“Bravo has been doing some budget cuts,” a source close to production explained. “Due to this, some of the women are holding off signing on, as they want to be compensated like they have been in the past.”
“This is also the reason that Bravo has been offering friend roles to some of the women,” our insider added, “as it’s cheaper to do it that way than hire them full time.”
If we had to guess, we are certain that Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon Beador, and Tamra Judge will be back, due to what they bring to the franchise. Kelly Dodd still is up in the air, but something tells us she’ll likely be back as well.
This means they will have to find one or two more women to add to the mix. Maybe Bravo should reunite this cast (image above).
Stay tuned, as The Dirty will be keeping you posted with all casting updates.
