Over the weekend, one Real Housewives of Orange County casting rumors caught Bravo fans’ attention, but it turns out its faker than Vicki Gunvalson’s face. Was that a little too harsh? Hmm…
Anywho, Deux Moi shared a juicy season 16 casting rumor they caught wind of via one of their very loyal fans.
“Tamra will be back,” the insider continued. “Heather [Dubrow] and Alexis [Bellino] said no. They’re trying to get Gretchen [Rossi] and her rich Newport friends on, but Gretchen won’t return if Tamra’s still on the show.”
According to one Bravo insider, this all sounds so interesting; however, not a lick of it is true.
Dave Quinn, who covers everything Real Housewives for PEOPLE, shut down the rumor in a series of Twitter posts.
According to Dave, “FYI, that Deux Moi #RHOC tea isn’t true so please stop sending it to me.”
One RHOC fan asked Dave: “What part isn’t true? I hope Tamra’s part is true.”
Dave replied, “All of it isn’t true. There have been no decisions made yet.”
RHOC fans are expecting a major casting shakeup for season 16 of the show. Andy Cohen has hinted that the OG Housewives franchise will be getting a complete “re-boot” for season 16.
This comes after much criticism over season 15 and its cast. Fans disliked season 15 so much that many called for Bravo to cancel RHOC altogether.
Some fans would like to see some former OC Housewives like Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Vicki Gunvalson, and Gretchen Rossi return to the show. Others want an entirely new cast. It’s unclear which direction Bravo will go.
RHOC will return for season 16 in mid-to-late 2021.
