Fans of Meghan may be thrilled to learn that she won't be leaving the show after all and will be part of the season 12 cast.

Unexpected decision by 'RHOC' producers

The Dirty reports that it was an unexpected decision by producers to bring Meghan back full-time. She was offered a "friend" contract after season 11, but turned it down. Insiders that the outlet spoke with claim there was a "missing link" into a whole month of filming the show and that's why they offered her the full-time gig again.

The "multiple sources" that The Dirty connected with explained that season 12 was missing something and Meghan was "needed to help fill it in."

Meghan just gave birth to her first child last November. She's been showing off her little bundle of joy on social media and photos reveal that she's the archetype beaming mother. With her coming back to "RHOC," viewers will finally get to see her daughter after all that she went through trying to get pregnant with in vitro fertilization.

Who else will appear on 'RHOC' this season?

What's actually known, however, is that she's a "spitfire" and will "bring a lot to the show." She's been happily married to her husband, Diko, for 21 years.
