Vicki Gunvalson opened up about moving on from her long-running role on The Real Housewives of Orange County during an interview with Hollywood Life on Instagram Live last night.

Just over two months after both she and Tamra Judge announced they would not be returning to the Bravo reality show for its upcoming 15th season, which began filming in February but is currently in hiatus due to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus, Gunvalson admitted that the series is no longer her show.

“It’s not really my show anymore, is it?” Gunvalson confessed. “Bravo moved on."

"It wasn’t me. It was them," she continued. "I wasn’t ready to move on. I felt like I built a really great, strong franchise and it hurt my feelings. I think they’re done with me. They dangled that carrot in front of me, ‘We’ll bring you back part-time [and then] we’ll bring you back full-time like some of the other ones.’ And then all of the sudden, they’re like, ‘We’re done with you and Tamra.’

"I didn’t get [Bravo's decision]. I’m the same person but they had different plans and truthfully, I don’t really like the new girls," Gunvalson admitted.

Prior to her exit in January, Gunvalson was the only remaining original cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Now, as the network moves forward with the newbies, Gunvalson claims there's "no authenticity."

"When you’re on as long as me, you can see through it," she explained. "I thought we were filming a reality show and my reality is pretty excited.”

Following Andy Cohen's COVID-19 diagnosis last month, Gunvalson touched base with her former boss and was happy to see that he had recently recovered and reunited with his one-year-old son, Benjamin, who was being cared for by a nanny during the time he was sick.

"I talked to him when he was diagnosed with the coronavirus. He said he was so sick but now he’s good," she shared. "He’s back seeing Ben in his house and they got reunited with not being in quarantine anymore.”

Several weeks after Gunvalson and Judge confirmed they would not be returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County cast after being offered reduced roles on the show, the two ladies were spotted filming together. However, when it comes to their future series, it is hard to say what it will be about and when it could potentially air.

Filming on the upcoming 15th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 is currently in hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
