Show Shakeup! 'RHOC' Casting Drama Explodes After Meghan's Shocking Exit
Season 13 is turning out to be a very unlucky one for the producers of Bravo's hit show Real Housewives of Orange County, as RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that there is some REAL drama brewing over Meghan King-Edmonds' exit earlier this week! Click through 7 shade-slanging photos to find out why Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge may leave the show for good!
After King-Edmonds announced that she was leaving to focus on her family and pregnancy, a source revealed that the 33-year-old was offered a guest role for next season but declined! "For Meghan it was all or nothing," the source added.
Gunvalson, 55, expressed to RadarOnline.com that she was thrilled over King-Edmonds departure, claiming that she was "never friends with Meghan." According to multiple sources, the expecting wife of NFL star Jim Edmonds was "fired" after several of her co-stars, including Gunvalson, said that she was "tough to film with."
As fans know, King-Edmonds got super close with co-stars Tamra Judge, 50, and Shannon Beador, 54, last season. "Vicki's talking bad about Meghan really set Tamra off, again," the source revealed. "Tamra will always stick up for Meghan because she didn't feel the same way Vicki felt about her."

Will King-Edmonds exit affect Gunvalson and Judge's newly rekindled friendship? Apparently not! "Vicki and Tamra are trying to recruit their friends to fill in the empty spots. They do not want an all new cast and would leave themselves if it weren't for Kelly Dodd and Shannon," the source told RadarOnline.com.
As RadarOnline.com reported, accused homophobe Peggy Sulahian and her bible-hugging BFF Lydia McLaughlin are both expected to get the the axe, which means that there will be three coveted spots up for grabs.
"As of this minute, they do not have anyone new selected," the insider dished to RadarOnline.com. "But there are a couple of options they're exploring, such as bringing back Gretchen Rossi and Heather Dubrow."
