Season 12 of the Real Housewives of Orange County may be over but the speculation and rumors about season 13 have only just begun.
Currently, there are a bevy of casting rumors out there, but the question on every RHOC fans’ mind is – what’s real and what’s utter nonsense?
So, let’s break down the rumors and tell you what our RHOC sources had to say!
Some rumors say that Peggy Sulahian, Meghan King Edmonds, and Lydia McLaughlin are all OUT for season 13. While other rumors claim that Vicki Gunvalson could be stepping down to a friend of the Housewives with Tamra Judge walking away from the franchise entirely.
Another rumor says that Bravo could be bringing on an entirely new group of ladies, while others insist Gretchen Rossi is being brought back to stir things up.
Well, we’ve talked to several of the OC Housewives, and they are calling bullshit on all these rumors. This is exclusive RHOC scoop told directly to AllAboutTRH that you won’t hear anywhere else!
First off, when we asked Peggy about rumors she’d been fired she told us “I am?” Then questioned why everyone seems to know she’s been fired except for her.
“How come everyone knows but me?!” Peggy asked.
Meanwhile, Lydia told us that “No one has been fired.” But quickly added that “No one has been asked back” either.
In fact, Lydia says “They are still casting girls and Bravo won’t make any decisions for a few weeks.”
Which goes hand in hand with what our OC sources told us back in November.
“We never know until around December,” our OC source revealed in November about casting.“Bravo doesn’t make any decisions until well after the reunion airs.”
With a second source confirming,“Bravo has to do market research to see who stays and who goes.”
However, one rumor we can confirm is total BS, as of now, is the rumor that Gretchen Rossi will be returning.
We asked Tamra about the rumor, and she said an emphatic “No.”
Adding that Gretchen is on a certain site’s “payroll and feeds them stories all the time” and that she’s “pretty sure that story comes out every year.”
As for the current peace between Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon Beador, many fans wonder if it will last or if it was all for show.
Well, their RHOC co-star Meghan is hopeful that the peace between them will last but admits history could repeat itself.
“I hope so! Peace is more fun than turmoil! But if history repeats itself then we all know how this story ends. But I’m staying positive!” Meghan tells AllAboutTRH.
So, there you have it, the truth straight from the OC Housewives mouths and not just “sources.”
We have a little more OC season 13 scoop coming your way this weekend or Monday so stay tuned!
