Days after the news that recent on- and off-set drama got Tamra Barney fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County, another cast member may follow.
Lizzie Rovsek is also being axed, according to insiders, but not because producers have had it with her diva behavior, as is the case with Tamra.
In Lizzie's case, she simply "didn’t bring anything to the show, and was super boring," according to insiders, and that will likely be her undoing.
“Lizzie isn’t going to be asked back,” a show insider tells Radar, although “the other newcomer, Shannon Beador, will definitely be getting an invite [back]!”
“Fans love Shannon because she is a bit of an airhead, likes to drink and party, and is a hot mess,” the insider explained. “She doesn’t care what others think."
"Producers want to cast women with similar personality traits,” the source dished, and that apparently does not include Lizzie Rovsek or equivalents.
On a recent episode, the only co-star to show up to the former beauty queen's party was Vicki Gunvalson, who complained about being stuck with her.
Never a good sign.
It's been an interesting few weeks for the show, and if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, that will only tell you the half of it.
Tamra's recent antics have led to some epic feuds with Rovsek, Beador and Heather Dubrow, which led to Barney's Facebook post calling out Bravo.
After this past week's she-said, she-said feud, Rovsek and Barney may both get the heave-ho, although Tamra has no intention of going quietly if so.
She accused them of hijacking her scenes to fake drama, then deleted her page and left the country. Now her nine-season run on RHOC may be over.
“The network has had it with Tamra’s [ego and behavior]. She sealed her fate by publicly stating that Bravo edited scenes to make her look bad,” a source said.
With Shannon Beador among the cast, producers feel they can replace her seamlessly, as "they love the drama of Shannon’s life, and her marriage."
"She has developed a huge fan following, even though she isn’t very conventional,” the insider explained. After all, “Shannon always keeps it interesting!”
