Could We See More Former RHOC Stars Return For Season 12?!!?

Blast from the past?

Rumor has it that former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lydia McLaughlin is heading back to the OC for season 12 and she may be bringing a familiar face with her.

While both Bravo and Lydia are staying tight lipped about this rumor, multiple sources tell Us Weekly that Lydia is returning and that “She seems really excited.” 

the AATRH team is wondering if this move could open the door for other former RHOC stars to comeback for season 12.

Former RHOC star Jeana Keough is known to pop in and out of the franchise; usually stirring the pot and being a backup to on-again, off-again friend Vicki Gunvalson. So we wouldn’t be shocked in Jeana made an appearance this season.

But the most likely to return Housewife award goes to Alexis Bellino who continues to be very good friends with Lydia. While Alexis would most likely be returning as a friend of the Housewife, it is likely that we could see her during season 12.

Since exiting RHOC, Lydia and Alexis have continued their friendship and even recently got together to celebrate Alexis’ birthday. Even attending a Louis Vuitton event together as well.

However, Alexis may not be the only former RHOC we see this upcoming season. Vicki and Kelly Dodd have been hanging out with Gretchen Rossi, Peggy Tanous, and Lizzie Rovsek, which means we could see them pop up during season 12. Oddly enough, Lydia has also separately been spotted out with Gretchen, Peggy, and Lizzie, what a tangled little web.

I for one am all about Bravo bringing back Lydia, Alexis, Gretchen, and even Lizzie who I adore. I think they would make a great mix with Shannon, Vicki, Tamra, and dare I say it, Kelly. Can you imagine the fun and the drama?? It’s like the perfect RHOC storm.

Do you think we will see more than one former RHOC star for season 12? Which former RHOC do you want back on the show? Which Housewives make up your perfect RHOC cast?

  • I see Vicky hedging her bets. Lydia…hmmm kinda boring but a needed relief??? I thought, in the end, Alexis got a raw deal, for the most part, thanks to Tamrot. She was never as nasty as most of the other ladies, unless I’ve forgotten … I really don’t want to see Tamrot. ever, and never really like Shannon and certainly DO NOT LIKE KELLY!! I’m kinda up for anything different. This cast became too vile.

  • I have to agree that having former OC ladies back would definitely be a lot of fun and drama. It would be wonderful seeing Gretchen and Alexis, Alexis and Peggy, Laurie and Vicky reconcile. I enjoy watching their fabulous lifestyles, including their success and challenges. It’s the times that the ladies supported one another or just listened to each others’ dreams and fears that were the most authentic. The producer driven drama is disgusting; it’s hard to believe that the producers forgot what originally made the housewives such a successful franchise.

  • Yes!!! please bring back gretchen and alexis…thats when the show was at it’s best… I like Lydia but boy is she boring and that announcement made me want to stop watching. However if you bring the ladies listed above back I will be watching every episode! lol

  • That’s not a bad idea! I would say let’s bring them out since there will be an interesting chemistry between formers and the cast!
