On the heels of Tamra Judge‘s return to her former series, The Real Housewives of Orange County, Kelly claimed Dorinda Medley has been asked to return to The Real Housewives of New York City while Phaedra Parks has been asked back to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“This is what Dorinda just told me: They asked [Tamra Judge] back, they asked [Taylor Armstrong] back, they asked [Phaedra Parks] back, they’re potentially going to ask Dorinda back, and they didn’t ask [Vicki Gunvalson] back,” Kelly told her fans and followers on August 4, via Page Six.
As fans have surely heard, Tamra announced her return to RHOC during an episode of Watch What Happens Live last month after Jill Zarin seemingly confirmed the news on Instagram. Then, just days later, it was revealed that Taylor Armstrong, who starred in a full-time role on the first three seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, would be joining her on the show as a “friend.”
Kelly went on to suggest that Vicki wasn’t happy to hear that Bravo had invited so many of her castmates from Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip, The Ex-Wives Club, to return to their shows while leaving her out of the rehirings.
Months ago, after Andy Cohen confirmed RHONY was getting split into two separate shows, one of which would feature an all-new cast and the other of whom would follow former cast members, Dorinda told Jeff Lewis on his SiriusXM Radio show that she was capturing footage of herself in hopes of being cast for the franchise’s Legacy installment.
“They love all that horizontal filming. So if they happen to ask me, I wanna be able to have documented it so I can go to people… And say, ‘Look, this is my move up.’ So I’m doing my homework just in case,” she shared on Jeff Lewis Live. “Now do I hope I’m on Legacy? Do I think potentially I’m in the mix? Yes.”
Meanwhile, back in June, Phaedra discussed her potential return to RHOA while appearing on The Wendy Williams Show, saying that due to her “many jobs” and “many careers” outside of Bravo, she doesn’t need the series to be a success.
“My life remains the same with or without a television show, and that’s not that for everyone,” she explained. “So, I am so grateful that whether I’m in front of a camera or not, I get to the bag.”
