The proof is in the pudding.
It looks like the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, may have been officially demoted to a friend of the Housewives.
Us Weekly reports that Vicki was not included in the Real Housewives of Orange County season 14 cast photo.
Sources say Vicki was “missing from” the season 14 cast photo, however, she was “on set” during the promotional shoot.
“Last week, the RHOC cast shot their official photos for the next season. Vicki was not included in the group cast photos and they shot multiple options,” the source spills.
Back in February, rumors first emerged that Vicki had been demoted to a friend role for season 14.
“Unless you hear it from me, then it’s simply a rumor,” the OG of the OC tweeted at the time. “I am in negotiations.”
Days later Vicki confirmed she was filming scenes for season 14. However, Vicki never confirmed her role for the upcoming season.
Bravo would not comment on Vicki’s season 14 role but they did confirm, to Us Weekly, that Vicki did film for season 14 and was present at the cast photoshoot.
Meanwhile, the RHOC is rumored to be getting a new Housewife for season 14. Braunwyn Windham-Burke is said to be joining the RHOC. In February, Tamra Judge inadvertently confirmed rumors in a post on her Facebook page when she shared a photo of herself with all the blondes of the RHOC.
In the photo, you can see Tamra, Vicki, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and rumored newbie Braunwyn posing together in a rare moment of peace as they film season 14.
“The (kinda) Real blondes of OC,” Tamra joked about the photo.
The Real Housewives of Orange County will return to Bravo later this year for its fourteenth season.
