One of the Real Housewives of Orange County Confirms She Won’t Return

After five seasons on The Real Housewives of Orange County one of the ladies is stepping away!

Heather Dubrow announced on her podcast earlier this year that she will not be returning for Season 12.

“After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County this season. These past 5 years have been an incredible journey and I’m so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture,”


Calm down though, the mum of four notes that “the door is always open” for a return, possibly even as a guest in season 12.

Speaking of season 12 we’re also here to share which one of the ladies will return!

After leaving her mark in her debut season, Kelly Dodd will be back for Season 12


We’ll have to wait and see about that Vicki!

Vicki Gunvalson is also rumored to return alongside co-star Kelly Dodd when the show is set to return in the US later this year.
