"Yeah, that doesn’t work,” Gunvalson continued, "A lot of producers … we’ve had good producers, bad producers. Unfortunately, [for] my last two years, [one] producer didn’t 'like me,' so there can be a way for the cast to be influenced by him saying this, that and the other."

As of now, the former 'RHOC' star says she has no plans to return to the program, "I don’t know what their thought is, I just don’t know how this cast is gonna carry on with two main cast members gone."
