This will be Dodd's second season, while Gunvalson is the lone remaining member of the Bravo unscripted series' original cast and has appeared on all 11 previous seasons.
The two ladies were both at the center of the drama in previous season, including friction with longtime cast member Tamra Judge. It was previously reported that OG of the OC and newbie Dodd were hoping to get Judge ousted from the show upocming new season, although their efforts were for naught, as sources confirmed back in January that Judge will be part of the season 12 fray as well.
The new season's roster is continuing to take shape. The publication previously revealed from sources last month that Season 8 cast member Lydia McLaughlin will return as a full-time cast member after a three year hiatus.
Beador will also be back for her fourth season and Judge will return for her 10th. Us Weekly also reveals from sources that Meghan King Edmonds will not return after two seasons.
Heather Dubrow announced back in January that she will not appear on season 12. "These past five years have been an incredible journey, and I'm so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture," Dubrow said in a statement.
