As we're still recovering from the drama (and hair) on part one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion last night, it's a good time to start thinking about next season. Rumors have it that some firings are imminent, and the hunt is on for new O.C. Housewives.
Perez Hilton happened upon a casting call for fresh new meat. It read, in part: "Married and living the good life in one of Orange County's exclusive communities? Production company is currently looking for fabulous affluent women and their families who live in amazing homes for the new season of Bravo's THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY."
It's so funny to think that's how they get the people on the show, but even more interesting is to think about who could get the axe (or axe themselves?) to make room for these newbies.
This season has been pretty solid as far as bringing the drama goes, so I'm a little a little wary of them messing with the chemistry (The Real Housewives of New York cast shuffle is so NOT working out well), but then again, a little mixing it up is sometimes good for the show. Here are some pros and cons for each of the ladies staying or leaving.
Vicki Gunvalson -- She's the O.G. of the O.C. so it would be sad to see her go. Plus, as worried as I am for her, I can't say I'm not eager to watch the whole Brooks Ayers drama play out.
Tamra Barney -- She can be mean, but the woman coined the nickname "Jesus Jugs" for Alexis Bellino, and for that Bravo owes her at least another season. Plus, she's always a sure bet for drama.
Heather Dubrow -- The newbie is a lot better than I thought she'd be. She's a little uptight and her use of the term "champs" all the time is uber annoying, but she's also smart and funny, and her husband is a hoot. She should definitely stay.
Gretchen Rossi -- I used to be a big fan, but over the past couple seasons, she's grown more irksome and shady. If she got the heave ho, it wouldn't be a big loss. Bonus: Slade Slimey Smiley would be gone too.
Alexis Bellino -- Oh Jesus Barbie/Jesus Jugs. She's the one I most suspect won't come back, and probably of her own accord -- or more likely due to her controlling husband's orders. She's fake, phony, and clueless, but she makes for good drama, so I hope she stays. Though if she treats the crew and employees at Nordstrom as badly as Heather says she does then she deserves the boot.
Sarah Winchester -- Who will eat the bow off of cakes if she goes? This "friend of the Housewives" seems to need some serious help, but she sure brings the serious drama. I hope she at least comes back for part two of the reunion.
Who would you most like to see go on The Real Housewives of Orange County?
