While some are speculating that actress/comedian/author Heather McDonald has joined "The Real Housewives of Orange County," a response from current housewife Heather Dubrow seems to indicate that the rumor isn't true.
As reported by RumorFix on Thursday, Dec. 19, when asked about whether Heather M. has really joined the cast, Heather D., not being allowed to comment on casting, simply said, "“I love Heather! She’s hilarious! I wish she lived in the OC.”
That sure sounds as if Heather M. isn't part of the OC housewives.
Several sources close to the show have also told the site that the rumor isn't true.
So what prompted the rumor? E! Online guessed that Heather McDonald was the newest member of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" based on how much time she has spent with returning housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow and Tamra Barney during the filming period lately.
So far, the only woman who has come in to replace Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Lydia McLaughlin is Shannon Beador and even that hasn't been confirmed by Bravo.
Do you think Heather M. is a new housewife?
