Kelly Dodd claimed that Bravo asked Dorinda Medley and Phaedra Parks to return to their respective Real Housewives franchises, on Instagram Live Thursday.

“This is what Dorinda just told me: They asked Tamra [Judge] back, they asked Taylor [Armstrong] back, they asked Phaedra [Parks] back, they’re potentially going to ask Dorinda back, and they didn’t ask Vicki [Gunvalson] back,” the Real Housewives of Orange County alum said.  

Kelly seemingly implied that Vicki, 65, was not happy about being iced out of Bravo’s effort to bring back most of the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club cast.

Last month, news broke that Tamra Judge had been asked back to RHOC, without her veteran sidekick. Tamra, 54, was axed from the series in 2020 after being on the show for 12 years. Vicki, who was an original RHOC cast member, was demoted before leaving the show for good ahead of Season 15.

Insiders previously told Page Six that the upcoming RHOC season is expected to “revolve around Tamra.”

Tamra is thrilled to come back to the show, especially after feeling the fan love from her stint on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip,’” another source told the outlet. “She can’t wait to get back in the mix on ‘RHOC’ and see how she can shake up the dynamic.”

It was later announced that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, Taylor Armstrong, would join RHOC as a “friend of” the cast. Taylor will be the first “Housewife” to jump across cities to join a different franchise. 

“Here we gooooo!!!!” Taylor wrote on Twitter, last week.

Phaedra, 48, recently spoke out about joining the cast of the Real Housewives of Dubai, as Season 14 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta plays out. Phaedra made a surprise splash in a RHODubai cameo appearance, earlier this season.

Phaedra spoke to ET earlier this month and shared that she would be open to returning to “Housewives,” especially the franchise set in the United Arab Emirates. 

“Now that, is a possibility. That is a strong possibility,” Phaedra said of possibly landing a spot on the RHODubai cast. “You’ve got to run with people who are obviously running with the same purpose and destination.”

“If you get out of the miry clay, honey, you got to stay out of the miry clay,” Phaedra added, using a Biblical term for a sticky situation.

Phaedra appeared on an episode of the newest “Housewives” franchise as a friend of Caroline Brooks. 

“What brings in the ratings, brings in the ratings, honey. Just look at the numbers,” Phaedra recently told Page Six. 

Phaedra also told the outlet that she was hoping to start a “transcontinental” life in in the United Arab Emirates with sons Ayden, 12, and Dylan, 9, and had even been checking out homes. 

The cast for Bravo’s New York City franchise has not been announced amid a  network reboot of the series. The Real Housewives of New York City will return with a brand new cast. A separate “Legacy” spinoff show will feature former cast members. Dorinda, who was reportedly put “on pause” in 2020, has yet to comment on her potential return.
