As Radar previously reported, Noella is joining the RHOC cast along with newcomers Nicole James and Dr. Jen Armstrong. Noella and Jen are reportedly both friends with axed cast member Braunwyn.
Following season 15, the producers decided to clean house and fired Braunwyn, Kelly Dodd, and Elizabeth Vargas. The returning ladies include Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter. Former cast member Heather Dubrow will also be returning.
Braunwyn was not pleased with the network's decision to fire her and bring on her two friends. She whined about not understanding their reasoning on an Instagram Live from Hawaii. She recently left Orange County after being hit with an eviction lawsuit accusing her of owing $45,000 in back rent.
Her husband Sean recently responded to the lawsuit, without the help of a lawyer, demanding it be thrown out of court. He admitted to owing money but claimed the suit was negatively effecting his wife's reputation.
