Apparently Vicki Gunvalson didn’t get the memo from Bravo that posting pictures with new Housewives is a no-no. Or, maybe it’s ok as long as you don’t actually go out and SAY that they’re new Housewives…
In case you missed recent Real Housewives of Orange County off-season news, Tamra Judge may have spilled the beans about a new face joining the Season 9 cast. Shannon Beador posed for photos with Tamra at a USC game they attended together which Tamra then posted to social media calling her the “new housewife”. Later, the photos came down, supposedly at the request of Bravo.
Well, don’t let that stop Vicki! The OG OC Housewife posted the following pictures on her Facebook page yesterday:
The other blonde is, while un-named by Vicki, clearly Shannon. So, first we had photos of Shannon with Tamra and now with the only other two OC Housewives left, Vicki and Heather Dubrow. Since filming is happening now, it sure seems likely that she’s a new addition to the cast!
But wait…the other thing that strikes me as interesting about these last two rounds of social media photo-shares is the other woman also seen hanging with all the OC ladies. The other brunette pictured above is Heather McDonald. She was also at the now-infamous USC game with Tamra and Shannon. And now she’s here with Vicki and Heather at dinner. We already knew she was friends with Tamra (she appeared in Tamra’s OC Wedding), but why is she hanging around so much with the whole cast during filming? Could she ALSO be a new Housewife?? Maybe just a “friend of the Housewives”…but still, that should make for some entertaining scenes! As far as I know (Slade Smiley notwithstanding) Bravo has never had a professional comedian Housewife.
IF Heather McDonald joins the cast that would mean we’d now have three Heathers who are current Housewives (with Heather Dubrow & Heather Thomson from RHONY) and TWO Heather’s in one city at the same time! That’s another Bravo first.
How do you think Heather Dubrow would feel about sharing the spotlight with another Heather? Especially one who is a famous comedian and successful TV personality?
