AceShowbiz - Gina Kirschenheiter is heading back to "The Real Housewives of Orange County". The reality TV star confirmed her return to the Bravo reality TV series in a new post she shared on her Instagram account.
The Thursday, February 13 post featured a photo of Bravo staff setting the cameras in what seemed to be her house. The mom of three could be seen opting for a casual loook in white knit sweater with the-dye stripes. "Here we go again!!! #rhoc #crazybeautifullife," so she wrote in the caption.
Fans were excited upon learning about the news. "Yay! Can't wait. I love watching your commentaries! They seriously crack me up. You are the best addition to rhoc, hands down!" one fan wrote in the comment section.
One other said, "Don't trust [Tamra Judge]. I'm so glad she's off the show she needs to focus and making her relationship better with her other kids. I would probably want Laurie, the old Gina, and heather back. Just to stir the pot." A psyched fan wrote, "Yaaaassssss! I've been researching hardcore waiting for this announcement!"
This will be her third season a full-time housewife, joining back in 2013 after a difficult year. Gina showcased her difficult divorce over the time she was on the show and also her journey of finding love again with boyfriend Travis Mullen.
Gina is joining Kelly Dodd as the Housewife who will make a return for season 15 of "RHOC". The latter confirmed the news on February 12, writing on Instagram, "Started filming today!" alongside a photo of herself with some of the show's crew. The snap also featured Braunwyn Windham-Burke who joined the series last year.
Their returns arrive following the firing of Vicki Gulvanson and Tamra Judge. Tamra announced her departure on Saturday, January 25. Speaking to PEOPLE, Tamra, who had been on the show for 12 seasons, said, "It's been a wild ride, and after all these years, I'm looking forward to life away from the cameras. I was offered a chance to come back to the show in a limited role, but would prefer to walk away on my own terms."
Meanwhile, Vicki Gulvalson shared that she left the show on Friday, January 24. "I will always be the OG of the OC, but it's time to say goodbye to 'The Real Housewives of Orange County'," the 57-year-old wrote on Instagram, before referencing her famous party catchphrase. "It's been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want to thank all of you for your support, for your love and for 'whooping it up!' "
