Vicki Gunvalson60, explained what actually happens, amid rumors that she may return The Real Housewives of Orange County. The blonde beauty spoke Page six at BravoCon on the subject, and while she admits she “filmed” a few scenes, she says it stops there. “I haven’t been labeled a full-time ‘Housewife’ or even a ‘friend of,'” she told the outlet on Friday. “I filmed a scene with Tamra and Shannon that was fun and I miss filming. But nothing more.” Vicki reportedly filmed with current cast members Tamra Judge, 54, and Shannon Beador58, in September.
She also clarified that there is no bad blood between the three. “We are good! We’re all good,” she said. “I was in Tamra’s room this morning and then I was out with Shannon last night. So everything is fine. Everything was fine.” However, she admitted that she and Shannon “stopped talking” for a while. “Tamra and I were never really in a bad place,” she explained. “We were good. Shannon and I just stopped talking for whatever reason. And there was really no fallout or even a specific issue. We just reached out to each other and we’re back at it.” Fans will recall that Vicki was fired from the iconic Bravo series in 2020, after nearly a decade and a half in the lead role. She later returned to Ultimate Girls Trip Season 2 with Tamra.
Vicki has had several personal upheavals since leaving the show. After her breakup with her fiancé Steve Lodge, 64, a source told Us that she was “crying all the time.” “She was really struggling,” the insider said Hollywood Life EXCLUSIVE in October 2021. “She shared the Steve breakup with the ladies upon arrival. She was so upset and kept crying that she could hardly participate in anything because she was so upset. The ladies tried very hard with her and to include her, but to no avail. She wanted to be left alone.”
Still, at BravoCon, the reality icon seemed to be in good spirits as she greeted members of the press at the Oct. 14 event in a video posted to her Instagram account on Friday. “Lots of celebrities, lots of fun,” she said as she panned her camera across the crowded carpet. “You’ve been with this franchise longer than anyone…you’re the queen,” gushed one of her 1.1 million followers in the comments thread.
