Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who was on the show for two seasons, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, who was on the most recent season, also will not return.
A Bravo spokesperson confirmed to Variety the departures of Dodd — a controversial firebrand who’s been in the cast since 2016 — Windham-Burke and Vargas. Their contracts were not renewed for the show’s upcoming 16th season, which is set to begin production next month.
Shannon Storms Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson, however, are all returning to “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” or “RHOC,” as it’s nicknamed. One or two new women will also join the cast.
