E! reports that:
“Season 14 of the long-running Bravo reality series, the show that started the Real Housewives franchise, will return for a new season with Vicki, the only remaining original star, appearing as a “friend” to the main cast. Returning for season 14 are Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson. Braunwyn Windham-Burke is the new addition to the series.”
It seems that Vicki’s recent engagement to Steve Lodge was enough to secure her a full-time roll on the hit Bravo show as rumors reported that she hoped it would be. Rumors have went around that Vicki was on the chopping block for months and according to sources, she was hoping her engagement would keep her front and center.
For her part, Vicki spoke out via Instagram stating:
“For the past 14 years I’ve opened up my life, my loves, my ups, and downs on The Real Housewives of Orange County and I am proud to be the ‘OG of the OC. I am back again this season right in the middle of the action, and I hope you have as much fun watching the show as I did living it in front of the cameras. Stay tuned to Bravo August 6th.”
You gotta love her dedication to promotion!
