by at .

There's going to be a lot of drama when The Real Housewives of Orange County returns for Season 12 later this year. 

Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd are confirmed to be part of the cast roster for the latest season of the reality series.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you will already know the pair caused a lot of drama on the most recent season. 

Being the sole original housewife still on the show, Gunvalson has been pulling out all the stops to ensure she gets as much screen time as possible.

Gunvalson went up against the ladies in a string of epic arguments that made us question why she was not the only full-time housewife.

Sure, she can be malicious as hell, but she made for great TV. 

Dodd came to Guvalson's defense many times throughout the most recent season.

All of the ladies seemed to have a problem with the original housewife because they thought she was in on Brooke Ayers' cancer claims that caused a storm during Season 10.

It was recently revealed that both Gunvalson and Dodd wanted Tamra Judge off the show because of all the beef they had with her. 

What the two women did not seem to realize is that viewers tune in when there's drama, so there was absolutely no way Judge was being let go without a fight. 

It has since been confirmed that Judge will be returning as a full-time cast member.

Producers are also hoping to send the ratings higher with the return of Lydia McLaughlin who has not been a full-time member of the cast since Season 8. 

Shannon Beador has also signed on to return, but what about Heather Dubrow and Meghan King Edmonds?

It was recently confirmed that neither women would be staging comebacks. It's always good to refresh the cast every so often.

It helps bring more drama, so we'll reserve judgment on the new cast until the show returns.

There is no official return date set as of yet, but it will most likely be in the summer. 

What do you think about all of this?
