RHOC 'FIRES' Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke following controversial behavior but brings back Heather Dubrow
REAL Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke will not return for the next season of the Bravo show following their controversial behavior.
However, former star Heather Dubrow will return to the reality show.
A Bravo spokesperson confirmed the departure of Kelly, Braunwyn and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas to Variety on Tuesday.
The RHOC stars’ contracts were not renewed for next season, which is set to start filming next month.
Current stars Shannon Storms Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson will return for the upcoming season, while RHOC is expected to add one or two new women to the cast.
Heather, 52, previously starred on the Bravo show from Season 7 through 11.
She was best known by the show’s fans for her sharp wit, confrontational style and marriage to plastic surgeon and Botched star Terry Dubrow.
The decision to drop Kelly, 45, from the show may not surprise fans, as she has been slammed multiple times for her controversial views and comments.
She previously sparked outrage when she made a toast to “super spreaders” while partying in a crowded restaurant with her husband, Rick Leventhal, and friends.
There were people cheering “no masks” at the party, along with cries of "screw Covid."
Kelly later defended their actions, saying: “I’m getting a lot of hate because we're at a restaurant we’re allowed to be at. We’re allowed to be at a restaurant!”
Drink company Positive Beverage didn't accept Kelly's version of events, however, and gave her the axe for her "controversial views and opinions."
Back in April 2020, Kelly claimed people who died from Covid would have "died anyway" with or without the virus.
