Poll: Which Ex-Castmember Would You Like To See Return To ‘Real Housewives Of Orange County?’
Real Housewives of Orange County has the highest number of ex-castmembers than any other city. This is mostly because it has been around the longest. If you’ve been watching Real Housewives of Orange County since its inception, you know that the show today is much different than the show at the beginning. The show originally centered around an aspirational group of new-money friends/acquaintances living in Orange County and documented their trials and tribulations with their family and friendships. There was barely any in-fighting between the ladies in the beginning. Now, most of the cast members were not friends before the show. Vicki Gunvalson is the only remaining original housewife on the show today. Many of them are introduced as tentative social friends of just one cast member, which causes them to clash more with the others. The economy and the real estate bubble didn’t help much either; Jeana Keough quit the show during a very hard financial crisis with her family and rumors have been circulating that Lynne Curtin wasn’t asked back for season 6 because her family was no longer aspirational, having been evicted from their home the season before.
Truthfully, I would probably watch the show no matter who was on it, but there are certainly ex cast-members that I miss more than others. Which brings me to my poll:
