Some troubling times may be on the horizon for the Real Housewives of Orange County cast.
A new report suggests that Bravo may fire the entire current RHOC cast and start completely fresh for season 15.
The OC Housewives are said to be anxiously awaiting their pickup letters for season 15. The entire cast is said to be worried because they’ve been warned that no one is safe.
“The pickup letters are going to be sent out the week of January 6 and no one is safe,” an insider snitched to Radar Online.
The source continued, “Bravo execs are considering firing everyone. They don’t want the show to be boring. They’re making the decision now and are going to let the ladies know in a few days.”
As we all know the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson was shockingly demoted to a friend for season 14 and her fate on the show isn’t secure at all moving forward.
“Vicki’s demotion may turn into her getting fired completely,” the source spilled.
The OG of the OC wasn’t happy about her season 14 demotion and she made that known at the season 14 reunion, where she says she was “lied to” by Bravo. Since then, Vicki’s let it be known that she will not return to RHOC as a friend moving forward; saying she’s either full-time or nothing.
However, Bravo isn’t phased by Vicki’s threat says a source as “Vicki has no leverage anymore. The execs are in charge and they don’t want the show to be the same. All of the fighting, the lawsuits, it was difficult.”
Previous reports suggested that Bravo was in a “deadlock” about how to proceed with season 15 of RHOC.
“Producers want Tamra [Judge], Shannon [Beador], Kelly [Dodd] and Vicki to continue, but they don’t want the show to become redundant and stale,” confessed a source.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter are also on the chopping block for season 15.
“The viewers don’t connect with the new ladies as much as the longer existing ones,” the source snitched.
While viewers connect with the “Tres Amigas” their status on RHOC is still being threatened but it seems the OG of the OC is one who should be worrying the most.
“Vicki’s future on the show is the one that is the most in jeopardy,” the source revealed.
Also, on Monday, rumors circulated that Tamra had been fired from RHOC after the OC Orange disappeared from her Instagram and Twitter profile. It mysteriously reappeared on her Instagram profile hours later.
Vicki, also, shut down rumors she was fired from RHOC telling one fan, “No truth to that. I don’t know yet.”
Meanwhile, the RHOC casts’ salaries have also been revealed.
Gina reportedly made $100k for season 14, while veteran Housewives Tamra and Shannon each earned $900k. Vicki, on the other hand, took quite a huge pay cut for season 14. She earned $20,000 per episode which equaled less than $500k for the entire season. In past seasons Vicki made $60k per episode.
