Andy Cohen Says Bravo Viewers Will Be “Pleasantly Surprised” By Heather Dubrow And Gina Kirschenheiter’s Relationship As Filming For ‘RHOC’ Season 16 Is Underway!

Andy Cohen is sharing details about the upcoming new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Cohen reveals why it was the right time to bring back Heather Dubrow. "I think it was the right time, not only because I think the fans were asking for it, but it's always fun to bring back an old friend and see an old friend, but also I think it was a great time to get back to some of the aspirational luxury that the Orange County franchise launched with, and that Heather certainly represents," Cohen told Entertainment Tonight.

Cohen, who is promoting his new Peacock series, Ex-Rated, teases that Bravo viewers will be surprised by Dubrow's relationship with Gina Kirschenheiter.

"I think they're going to be pleasantly surprised," Cohen said to those who doubt a Dubrow-Kirschenheiter friendship.

In June 2021, it was revealed that Kelly DoddBraunwyn Windham-Burke, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas were not asked to return to RHOC for the show’s upcoming Season 16. According to reports, Bravo decided not to renew their contracts.

A spokesperson confirmed the news to Variety about Windhand-Burke, Lyn Vargas, and Dodd’s departures.
