The Real Housewives of Orange County is shifting gears with the exit of uppity cast member, Heather Dubrow — and Season 12 promises to be a doozy.

Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge have confirmed their returns, but viewers have been anxiously wondering the fate of fan favorite, Kelly Dodd. The wait is over.

We can exclusively confirm that Kelly will return for another spin in the Bravo spotlight. Many believe that Kelly’s rookie season was the most epic debut in Bravo history, with raw emotion and brutal honesty defining her reality presence.

An insider dishes to AllAboutTheTea.com that not only is Kelly coming back — the controversial player was given a pay hike. The production source also confirms that filming is underway.

Kelly has signed on for another season,” the source reveals. “She was given a raise, and filming began this week.”

Kelly recently pointed to a tough negotiation on social media, raising questions about her return. Fans chimed in, stomping for her comeback.


The production source also confirmed that Lydia McLaughlin has been brought back, and has already filmed. Lydia was a cast member during Season 8, and was a forgettable presence in the OC mix. Will a second chance prove to be a different story?

We have not yet heard solid confirmation of Vicki Gunvalson’s return — stay tuned.
