The Real Housewives Of Orange County Cast Salaries Revealed! Plus Bravo Is “Considering Firing” The Entire Cast, Source Says!

While the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County awaits for their new contracts, sources are revealing that Bravo is allegedly considering firing the whole cast. “The pickup letters are going to be sent out the week of January 6 and no one is safe,” an insider told Radar Online.

“Bravo execs are considering firing everyone. They don’t want the show to be boring. They’re making the decision now and are going to let the ladies know in a few days.”

Even, original cast member Vicki Gunvalson's future on the show is up in the air. If you recall, Gunvalson was demoted to a "friend" on the show last season.

“Vicki’s demotion may turn into her getting fired completely,” the source told Radar Online.

Vicki has made it very clear that she will not return to the series unless it's for a full-time role. However, according to the source, the decision isn’t Vicki’s to decide.

“Vicki has no leverage anymore. The execs are in charge and they don’t want the show to be the same. All of the fighting, the lawsuits, it was difficult.”

The Tres Amigas were popular with viewers, but their status was still being threatened. “Vicki’s future on the show is the one that is the most in jeopardy,” the source told Radar Online.

Vicki took a pay cut to stay on the show, going from $60,000 per episode to $20,000, less than $500,000 for the season. As for Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, they each earned about $900,000 for their salaries, according to the outlet.

Meanwhile,  Gina Kirschenheiter earned $100,000 for the season, according to her divorce documents obtained by Radar Online.

The news comes after Andy Cohen shared last month on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live about the possibility of shaking up the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County for the show's upcoming fifteenth season.

“The casting for next season is some of the best casting we’ve had,” Cohen said, adding that he “[has] not been this excited about casting” in a long time, according to PEOPLE.

When asked by Lewis who would be getting axed, Cohen wouldn’t say, but he did stress that he thought Braunwyn Windham-Burke was “a great” addition.

“She’s got a lot going on,” Cohen said, nothing Windham-Burke’s seven children, her eccentric mother, and her and her husband’s sex-pad. “You’ve got Dr. Deb, you’ve got the kids, you’ve got the other apartment …”

“Unfortunately, you’re going to have to get rid of one of the Tres Amigas and break it up,” Jeff told Andy. “You got to keep Kelly Dodd though. I mean she’s just a wild card and I love her. And I would give Braunwyn another season. I like her.”

Cohen assured that fans will be happy with the outcome. “No matter how it shakes out, it’s going to be great because we have great casting. It’s hard to make moves when you don’t have a bench, both on the show and casting wise,” Cohen said.
