The OG OC Vicki Gunvalson Leaves the Real Housewives Franchise

With the release of the new season of the Real Housewives of Orange County, the Bravo TV Entertainment announced shocking news. Vicki Gunvalson, the original housewife who kick-started the OC housewives franchise back in 2006 and who we got the chance to interview in the past, is leaving the cast.

Many die-hard fans were left devastated after hearing the news about Vicki’s decision to depart from the show.


However, Vicki took to Instagram to make her own statement and to enlighten everybody about the situation. Despite enjoying the past 14 years of starring on the show and sharing so much about her life with the audience, the star explains that she is ready to take up a bit of a different role within the show.

The new role Vicki is talking about is a guest star role alongside the remaining cast. Vicki’s fans can, therefore, get relieved since the OG OC will definitely make cameos in the upcoming season, just not as one of the housewives anymore.


The insurance mogul is very close to two of the main cast members Tamra Judge and Shannon Beader and that is why we do not doubt that her RHOC appearances will be greater than just a few minutes cameos.

The new season premiered this past Tuesday on Bravo TV and is back with a new episode every week. Tune in to see a little bit less but still at least a bit of Vicki and the remaining housewives every Tuesday from now on.
