Bravo is giving the Real Housewives Of O.C. a make-over!
As we speak, the network is sharpening their scalpels in preparation to cut some dead weight off the cast … and the end result may not be so pretty!
An show insider tells us:
"Bravo execs are looking to refresh the cast the same way that it revamped the cast of its New York City franchise this season, adding three new women.
This means the casting call we saw a couple weeks ago was legit!
Our insider indicates that executives are looking for wealthier more dramatic people to shake up the show — and Vicki Gunvalson and Alexis Bellino are the closest to the chopping block!!
You'd NEVER guess who Bravo is looking to place Vicki with! According to our source:
"Producers had considered asking Gunvalson’s pregnant 24-year-old daughter Brianna Wolfsmith to join the cast, given that she eloped with her boyfriend last year and is already known to Orange County viewers."
Replaced by her own daughter! Now THAT is some dramaz!
Howeves, we're not counting on that outcome. If the network is looking for richer crazier housewives, Brianna won't do.
From what we've seen of her throughout the years, her mom's coo-coo gene skipped a generation. Plus, she's a nurse and her new husband serves in the military. Respect points out the wazoo — but not copious amounts of ca$h.
We have a feeling Vicki, the longest serving O.C. Housewife is going to be forced to retire.
As for Alexis… we hope she stays! Her outrageous claims and ridiculous reactions make for some fan-tas-tic TV!
