Did [insert name here] from "The Real Housewives of Orange County" get fired?

It's the age-old question that gets asked every year. Unfortunately, there's no official word yet from the network on who will make the cut for the show's Season 15 cast but, of course, that hasn't stopped fans from speculating. The most recent cast member to spark speculation of a potential firing is Tamra Judge.

Social media users noticed that the fitness gym owner removed the orange emoji from her Instagram bio and couldn't help but wonder: Was Tamra fired from "RHOC"?

When one user reached out to the reality star, she didn't exactly deliver the clean-cut answer fans so desperately want.

"People look to [sic] deeply into things," she wrote.

The emoji has since returned to Tamra's profile, however, she's not the only one who people have speculated has been fired. Vicki Gunvalson, a full-time cast member since Season 1 who was demoted to "friend" for Season 14, was also asked on Instagram last week if she will return to "RHOC" for Season 15.

"Is it true that you are not coming back?" one user asked.

"No truth to that," Vicki responded, "I don’t know yet."

At the moment, the consensus seems to be that none of the cast members know what the future holds, but sources revealed to Radar Online earlier this month that they should know sooner than later.

"The pickup letters are going to be sent out the week of January 6 and no one is safe," an insider said.

That means any of the Season 14 ladies could be on the chopping block. Including full-time "Housewives" Tamra (Seasons 3-14), Shannon Beador (Seasons 9-14), Kelly Dodd (Seasons 11-14), Gina Kirschenheiter (Seasons 13-14), Emily Simpson (Seasons 13-14), and newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke (Season 14).
