According to Jim Bellino, his wife, Alexis, is busy contemplating her return to The Real Housewives of Orange County next season, but sources at Bravo tell a different story. Rumor has it that the network is getting ready to make some big changes to the cast, and Mrs. Bellino may be on the chopping block. Why, and who else are they thinking about letting go? We’ve got all the details.
The cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County may look a bit different next season…and not because of facelifts or any other kind of surgery (elective or otherwise).
Page Six reports that Bravo is about to make some major changes to the cast, letting go of a few of the old cast members, bringing in some new ‘wives, and maybe even adding one familiar face.
In an email from RHOC producers Evolution Media, sent last week, the company announced that they’re on the look-out for “fabulous affluent women and their families who live in amazing homes to potentially be on this series.”
Does this mean that Heather Dubrow is safe?!
One source says that at least one of the show’s regulars is at risk of losing their job, and Alexis Bellino and Vicki Gunvalson are the most vulnerable at this point.
Apparently, producers weren’t too happy about Bellino leaving Costa Rica early, and if it’s true that they’re seriously considering asking Vicki’s daughter, Brianna Wolfsmith to officially become a housewife next season, well…that can’t work in Alexis’ favor.
What do you think RTVM: Who would you rather have cut from The Real Housewives of Orange County — Alexis or Vicki? Do you think Bravo should have Brianna join the cast as a ‘wife? Sound off in the Comments section below.
