The Real Housewives of Orange County season 11 officially started filming last month, and not much has been divulged about the upcoming season. As AATRH previously reported, Vicki Gunvalson’s son Michael Wolfsmith confirmed his mom is returning to the show on Instagram. Allegedly, all of the women from season 10 will be back, along with a new wife or two to mix things up. Bravo knows that fans are over the Brooks Ayers cancer drama, and that the show needs to move in a different direction.
It only took weeks, but the casting rumors are circulating and Radaronline is reporting that Kelly-Meza Dodd is a contender for The Real Housewives of Orange County season 11.
While it still seems early a source went so far as to say, “The new O.C. housewife is Kelly Meza-Dodd.” According to her Facebook, Kelly moved to Corona Del Mar, California from San Francisco in September 2014. While its uncertain where she is originally from, Kelly moved to San Fran in 2005.
“She is currently married,” the insider said. She and husband Michael Dodd wed, and had a child in 2006, her only. Kelly was previously married, but it’s unknown to whom.
According to Bloomberg.com, Michael was previously President of LeapFrog Enterprises Inc., and served as the advisor to the CEO in 2013. Kelly can definitely hang with the housewives, well most of them. (Heather Dubrow excluded) Salary.com revealed her husband Michael raked in $1,410,386 for his advisor role in 2013.
Vicki Gunvalson will most likely take very kindly to Kelly, as they have a lot in common. Kelly doesn’t depend on her husband’s money; she is a workingwoman! As of 2014 she served as Chief Operating Officer of Kiss Me Mirrors, a company based out of Newport Beach, CA.
Storyline? No problem! Things may not be all that they appear between Kelly and Michael, and her dream life may be coming to an end soon. “I hear her marriage is on the rocks,” the insider dished.
Well, it’s a bit too soon to make a judgment, or even assume Kelly is on board as a full time housewife; however, usually if a woman’s name is thrown in the mix, she is in some way involved in that season.
It will be great to have a new workingwoman on the show, and her company is intriguing. The storyline of a troubled marriage has been done time, and time again, unless there are some MAJOR problems that could get boring.
Overall, I’m willing to give ANY new blood a chance, and I can’t wait for The Real Housewives of Orange County to be back!
Do you think Kelly is the newest Real Housewife of Orange County? Are you open to new blood on the show? Do you think the “troubled marriage” storyline is overdone? What do you think of Bravo adding another workingwoman to the show? Are you excited for season 11 of The Real Housewives of Orange County?
