RadarOnline.com has reported that Peggy Sulahian, the Armenian-born newbie housewife, will not be returning to the “Real Housewives of Orange County” for Season 13. Even though Bravo doesn’t officially announce who’s contract has been renewed until filming of the new season starts, RadarOnline.com says that Peggy and Diko just didn’t gel with her castmates. Rumor has it that the other ladies don’t think she’s a good fit and were petitioning to get her fired. So, sorry Peggy, but it looks like you’re one and done.
Now it appears that another OC housewife may not be returning. Lydia McLaughlin may be heading for the door after a lackluster return. This is Lydia’s second visit to the OC. She left back in 2013 because she wanted to focus on her husband and children. She even had time to have another baby, a little boy. While that exit was Lydia’s choice, this exit is not. An insider said she was brought back to help mend fences on the show that seemed to be
Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalsen’s friendship were on the outs because Vicki accused Tamra’s husband, Eddie Judge, of being gay. Vicki didn’t have evidence, she said she just heard. To Vicki’s end, she just couldn’t get over Tamra believing Vicki was in on her ex-boyfriend’s cancer scam.
The Tamra/Vicki separation was bigger than Lydia and she found herself more and more aligning herself with Peggy. Let’s be honest, Lydia spent her time defending Peggy as all of the ladies grew weary of Peggy’s holier-than-thou attitude and her constant, “I don’t know what that means” excuses.
The producers of RHOC do want Meghan King Edmonds back. They believe that her second pregnancy with husband, Jim Edmonds, will make for good TV. If that’s the case, Meghan will want to give that new bundle of joy a percentage of her pay since rumor has it that the baby is the only thing keeping the producers from cutting her.
One possible beam of light, that is, if you like her, is that producers are thinking of having Gretchen Rossi join the ladies for another season. You’ll remember Gretchen was released in 2013. Again, the cast seemed to have a problem with the rooftop proposal Gretchen staged for fiancé, Slade Smiley. Of course they questioned it, none of them were invited to the party! But fans of the show seem to really want her back and the producers may be actually listening.
As for now, the rest of the cast: Vicki Gunvalsen, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Kelly Dodd are all scheduled to return when Season 13 starts filming. No word yet on just when that will be but looking forward to learning if all these reported comings and goings are true. Oh please be true!
