Heather Dubrow, Miss Fancy Pants herself, is making her triumphant return to the Real Housewives of Orange County for season 16. As fans know, Dubrow left the franchise in 2011 after a five-season run. In addition, current cast members Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Elizabeth Vargas won’t be returning. This past season was Vargas’s first.
Dubrow confirmed the news of her return this morning with a RHOC-themed promotional photo on Instagram. Fourteen season housewife veteran, Tamra Judge, is expected to announce her return as well, so it stands to reason that THE original “OG” of the real housewife series, Vicki Gunvalson, will be returning as well.
Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter are also expected to return.
