You know the drama is all too real when Bravo steps in and puts a stop to it! The Real Housewives of Orange County cast has been banned from speaking publically about other cast members, following backlash from the Brooks Ayers cancer situation. Radaronline reports that all of cast members are on a “media lockdown,” coming straight from the top executives at Bravo. This seems pretty serious, and if these ladies want there jobs back next season they will keep their mouths shut!
An insider reports, “Right now, the ladies are forbidden to talk about each other and the entire cast is on media lockdown.” The reason behind this? A source reveals, “This was done as a means of damage control.” “They have all been talking so much sh*t about each other that Bravo had no other choice then to step in and put a lock on it,” the insider added. This totally makes sense, these ladies have been bashing Vicki any chance they can, and I was really turned off by this “mean girl” behavior.
What was the final straw, leading Bravo to set such high demands on the cast? The heat Vicki got after her one on one sit down with Andy Cohen, in particularly from former BFF Shannon Beador. Shannon posted so many videos bashing Vicki I got bored and had to stop watching. In my opinion Shannon was the only one who had a right to be upset with Vicki, because of how close they were and the help Shannon tried to give. While Vicki did admit to embellishing for sympathy, I don’t think that specifically warranted all the hate she received.
“There is a good chance that Vicki will be returning next season,” the source confirms. “The network simply cannot have any more of the other ladies badmouthing her when they are going to get ready to start shooting the new season.” Meghan King Edmonds thought she was queen bee and could push Vicki out, and I hope that blows up in her face. She ruined this season, and the whole dynamic of the show. Meghan is the reason the season took such a dark direction and I hope Bravo realizes that. I am all for some new, young blood in any franchise, but not if they will ruin the show.
None of the RHOC ladies have been bashing each other since those Shannon videos came out. Right after the special they all had something to say, but nothing else since. This supports the “media lockdown” theory, and I think this was a smart move by Bravo. I don’t understand how Bravo didn’t step in when they saw how dark the season had become. I don’t think they’ll make that mistake again, and hopefully season 11 will be the best one yet! The Real Housewives of Orange County casting rumors should be surfacing any day now, stay tuned!
Do you believe the RHOC cast is on “media lockdown”? Do you want Meghan back next season? What about Vicki? Who do you think should join The Real Housewives of Orange County?
