According to Bravo, Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas will not be returning to “The Real Housewives of Orange County”.
Sources state that two new women will be added to the cast, with one being a wealthy black woman. Those two members are currently unknown.
RHOC veterans Heather Dubrow, Emily Simpson, Shannon Beador, and Gina Kerschenheiter will be returning to the show. Dubrow has not been a part of the show since its 11th season.
Fans called for the removal of Dodd from the lineup since she began making controversial remarks about COVID-19. The Ex-RHOC star said that the pandemic was “God’s way of thinning the herd.”
Though Dodd apologized for those remarks, she kept a steady brigade of criticisms about the disease and pandemic regulations. She is seen in a video cheering with friends at a restaurant as they proclaimed themselves as super-spreaders.
Kelly Dodd was later seen wearing a hat mocking the Black Lives Matter movement, stating “Drunk Wives Matter.”
Braunwyn Windham-Burke came out as gay after the filming of Season 15 was completed. She explained that while she is only attracted to women, she will remain married to her husband, Sean Burke. The two have been living apart since October of last year. Windham-Burke currently has a girlfriend who spends time at the house she shares with Sean.
After having her background checked by Windham-Burke, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas revealed that she grew up in a religious cult. The cult, Faith Bible Tabernacle in Missouri, caused her a large amount of childhood trauma.
