The Real Housewives of Orange County is about to get a NY-esque make-over! Bravo is reportedly unhappy with the current cast and is looking to give some of them the boot and add three new wives — just likely the did with the New York franchise.
According to Page Six, Bravo is currently searching for “fabulous affluent women and their families who live in amazing homes to potentially be on this series.” Bravo allegedly plans on dumping at least one of the current ladies and Alexis Bellino could be the first to go. Producers weren’t thrilled that she left filming in Costa Rica early. Also on the chopping block? Vicki Gunvalson.
It seems odd that Bravo would even consider giving Vicki Gunvalson the boot. She’s been with the show since the get-go and on top of that, she’s got plenty going on in her life. Her daughter is having a baby is September and her boyfriend, Brooks, is the reason for a lot of the drama. Perhaps it is Vicki who is ready to make her exit. With her grandson due soon, she may want to focus on her family.
The Bellinos on the other hand have publicly stated that Jim will not be filming for the show anymore and Alexis is still on the fence about a return. This could very well be them trying to avoiding the humiliation of being fired.
According to reports, producers have considered Vicki’s daughter, Briana, for a position on season 8. She recently got married and is expecting a baby this October. Plus, the viewers of Real Housewives of Orange County already know her.
