The Real Housewives of Orange County is shaking things up for the new season after a trio of stars got the axe — and a fan favorite is returning as production is expected to kick off next month.
Fans have long argued the last few seasons of RHOC have been boring, and Dodd has been slammed for negative remarks she made about the coronavirus pandemic and accused of mocking the Black Lives Matter movement.
At one point, fans went as far as to circulate a petition demanding Bravo fire Dodd due to her deemed wild antics.

“The last five years have been an amazing experience,” Dodd, who recently married Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal tweeted on Tuesday, June 15. “The next five years will be even better. I am so grateful for all the love and support and so excited about the future #RHOC.”
Windham-Burke joined the series in season 14 and had a controversial run. She notoriously came out as a lesbian while still married to her husband, Sean.
Lyn Vargas, who joined the most recent season 15, couldn’t connect with the audience and many felt her story line was dull. The one-season reality star even confessed to being raised in a “religious cult,” but it wasn’t enough for a contract renewal.
