REAL Housewives boss Andy Cohen revealed ANOTHER former star is coming back to a show in the popular franchise.
The 53-year-old shared the news after Heather Dubrow was confirmed to return to Real Housewives of Orange County.
While appearing on Heather’s podcast Heather Dubrow’s World, Andy said: “I talked to someone else in a similar situation in another city and they were like, ‘You know what? I’m not gonna tell anybody.’
“And I was like, ‘Please don’t tell anyone.’ And they said, ‘No, I’m not. I don’t want anyone’s opinion. I’ve made up my mind and I don’t want anyone telling me not to or why it’s a bad idea or whatever. It’s happening.”’
The Bravo boss didn’t specify which Real Housewives franchise will be seeing another familiar face, though it sounds like the mystery star is definitely onboard to return to reality TV.
It was revealed on Tuesday that Heather, 52, is returning to RHOC after leaving the show in 2016.
Meanwhile, a Bravo spokesperson confirmed the departure of Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas to Variety.
The RHOC stars’ contracts were not renewed for next season, which is set to start filming next month.
Current stars Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson will return for the upcoming season, while RHOC is expected to add one or two new women to the cast.
Heather previously starred on the Bravo show from Season 7 through 11.
She was best known by the show’s fans for her sharp wit, confrontational style and marriage to plastic surgeon and Botched star Terry Dubrow.
Shortly after Bravo made the announcement, The Sun exclusively reported that Kelly, 45, is “furious” over her firing.
While many RHOC fans are devastated by the cast shakeup, some called for the move as Kelly’s past comments were “to come back from for a majority of Bravo viewers,” a source told The Sun.
The insider explained: "Kelly's comments about Covid, Black Lives Matter and other political and social issues was ultimately the reason she was let go.
"She's very upset, of course. She feels she was treated unfairly but is excited for her next projects, her career is just taking off.”
Kelly and Heather famously feuded during their time together on RHOC.
“There's definitely resentment about Heather coming back in her place, Kelly's not happy about that.
“But she ultimately wishes the show well and wants to move forward with her life,” the insider insisted.
A source close to Kelly said that she is “surprised to hear viewers didn’t support her” as her “Instagram page is filled with thousands of comments offering love and support.”
