The Real Housewives of Orange County cast members might want to tread carefully over the next few months, as show decision-makers are considering giving them the boot.

Sources spoke to Radar Online, who confirmed that producers are seriously considering rehiring Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, and Kelly Dodd, "but they don't want the show to become redundant and stale," an insider revealed.

"The drama was good with Tamra, Shannon, Vicki, and Kelly," the source continued. "But do viewers want to keep seeing the same thing over and over?"

Vicki stated during the recent reunion show that she is uninterested in returning to the show as a friend. This past season, Vicki was demoted to "friend" as viewers complained about her boring storyline and after she claimed on-air that castmate Kelly used cocaine.

Kelly denied all allegations against her. Ratings for the show have actually gone up despite Vicki's demotion.
