Is a 'Real Housewives' Star About to Be Replaced by Her Daughter? [POLL]
Things Are About to Get Very Interesting in The O.C.
Bravo shook thinks up radically with the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City this season, and a new report suggests the network is about to do the same thing with its original Real Housewives franchise.
The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson and Alexis Bellino are quite possibly on the chopping block, the New York Post's Page Six column reports.
And among the potential new Housewives: Vicki's daughter, Brianna, who's now a housewife (and soon-to-be mama) after eloping with her boyfriend.
Page Six reports that sources said Bravo executives want to "refresh" the O.C. cast, just like they did the NYC cast. The results of that makeover are still up in the air … fans haven't exactly embraced the new NYC cast members.
RHoOC producers reportedly sent out a casting email last week, looking for "fabulous affluent women and their families who live in amazing homes to potentially be on (RHoOC)."
Page Six's sources say Bravo wants to cut at least one of its current cast members, with Gunvalson and Bellino as the top two candidates to get the boot. Gunvalson, who, as the only original cast member of the show still on the series is the RH franchise's senior star (or the "OG of the O.C.," as Andy Cohen calls her) has always been a polarizing figure.
Some people love her, some love to hate her, and her split from husband Donn and subsequent relationship with drippy boyfriend (and accused deadbeat dad) Brooks Ayers has not increased her popularity among those not on Team Vicki.
Bellino, meanwhile, has even fewer fans, with her castmates calling out her poor treatment of crew members during the show's recent post-season reunion, and producers reportedly unhappy that she left during filming of a cast trip to Costa Rica during the most recent season.
Bravo has no comment on the story, Page Six reports, but sources also told the newspaper that 24-year-old Brianna is high on the list of potential new cast members. She's already known to viewers, and she's also been a fan favorite who gained even more viewer support during a recent cancer scare on the show.
Would you be sorry to see "The OG of the O.C.," Vicki Gunvalson, kicked off the show?
