The Real Housewives of Orange County: Who’s Returning? Who’s FIRED?

Last November, it was reported but not confirmed that Vicki Gunvalson regained her Orange after her role as a “Friend” on Season 14.

At the time, we made it clear that no one would know for sure which members of the Housewives cast are returning until January.

Well, Season 15 production seems to have begun.

And celebrity gossip site Radar Online reports that, just before the weekend, contract renewals went out … but not to everyone.

Take a look below and see who’s returning, whose status is still up in the air, and who is fired heading into the next season on Bravo.

1. RHOC is returning!

To no one’s surprise, The Real Housewives of Orange County is coming back for Season 15. But just because the show is coming back doesn’t mean that it’s bringing back the whole cast. Who’s in? Who’s out?

2. Everyone’s been wondering about Vicki

Back in November, after Bravocon, it was reported that Vicki was coming back as a Full Housewife. But a report is far from a confirmation, and at the time, we stressed that no one would know for sure until January. Well, it’s January.

3. But first

Despite Vicki’s attempt to frame her otherwise, there was nothing “boring” about Braunwyn and she’s returning for another season. I, for one, am hyped.
