After last weekend’s bombshell news about Tamra and Vicki leaving, the rest of the group has reportedly signed on for another season of RHOC.
A source confirmed to Us Weekley that Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke will all be back for season 15 of RHOC. They definitely have not started filming yet, but its clear contracts have gone out…or not gone out if you are Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Judge. Filming is typically over the summer and through the Holiday season, so there is plenty of time still.
Love is in the air
All of the ladies have interesting things going on in their lives that would make for solid storylines. Shannon is recently divorced and settling in with her three daughters and dog, Archie. She has a boyfriend, John Janssen, who she has been spending a lot of time with. I wonder if we will get to see him on screen more? Kelly is busy traveling and planning a wedding with Rick Leventhal.
But not for everyone
Gina is also settling in with her boyfriend, Travis Mullen. A source told Us Weekly earlier this week that the pair planned on moving in together soon. Gina is still battling her ex Matt Kirschenheiter in court, but I believe the marriage was scheduled to be over on December 31, 2019. That will probably be part of her storyline so she’s been quiet about it.
And then there’s Braunwyn
This will be Braunwyn’s second season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, so her storyline will probably remain about her crazy family…especially her mother. Towards the end of last season, it appeared that Braunwyn, Kelly, and Emily were becoming close friends.
That leaves Gina and Shannon to either be on the outside or go against everything they did last season to be included. I love a shift in alliances! Who are you most excited to see back?
The Real Housewives of Orange County will be back later this year.
