Reality star Vicki Gunvalson is known as ‘the OG of the OC’ after starring on 14 seasons of the Real Housewives of Orange County. After being demoted in the newest season to a “friend of” the housewives, Gunvalson says she will not return to the show for season 15 unless returned to full-time status.
A report surfaced this week that Gunvalson will be returning back to the show as a full cast member for season 15. According to Radar Online, she gave Bravo an ultimatum that she would only come back if it was in a full-time role. In the report it seems that Vicki was successful.
Fellow RHOC cast member Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Gunvalson have been feuding. When Gunvalson shared a post on Instagram, a fan commented “Vicki just got signed to come back as a member next year… gross. Stay real Braunwyn.” Windham-Burke replied to the fan, hinting that Gunvalson might not actually be returning to the show after all. She wrote “Don’t believe most of what you’re reading right now.” Could she be suggesting that Gunvalson has been fired?
Bravo has not made any public casting decisions for Season 15 yet and none of the current cast has secured a spot on the show. One insider did reveal that viewers tune in to watch the “Tres Amigas” which consists of Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador. Host Andy Cohen has recently said that “the casting for next season is some of the best we’ve had.”
