'Real Housewives of Orange County' Heads May Roll

Real Housewives of Orange CountyAs 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?

Tamra is my least favorite. She went downhill after season 4. She's really vindictive and angry. I miss the originals. Bravo should bring Jo back. Imagine the drama! Jo would surely shut Gretchen & Tamra down!

None! I like the cast just the way it is!

I must be the only one watching who likes Slade. He is an interesting guy. Gretchen has been my favorite, but this season I thought Slade brought more to the show.

Alexis is my least favorite but I don't think she'd offer to leave the show on her own, her pretentious personality wouldn't allow that!  She needs the show to stay relevant, and the money can't hurt either (why do you think her hubby hasn't already demanded she quit?)

I like Vicki a lot but she's walking a thin line between sane & crazy these days, I would be sad to see her go but I think it would benefit her personal life.

And I truly hope to NEVER see Sarah Winchester's face ever again! She's a trainwreck.

I don't care for Heather..she is too straight laced ...

Jesus Barbie really needs to take a walk.  Her and her slimy hubby- Jimmy "the chin" Bellino are as fake as it gets... Reunion- kind of Boring...

I think Alexis needs to get booted from the show. The way she puts everyone down is not very lady like. Plus, she is so phony. She needs to listen to the other wives when they are trying to tell her how she acts. I'm not a fan of Vicky, but it will be interesting to watch how Brooks takes advantage of her. She's no naive to the fact he's obviously using her. He's controlling her even with her relationship with her daughter.

Jesus juggs or Heather. Heather is annoying and Jesus juggs get's on my last nerve!
