What would a season of “Real Housewives of Orange County” be without Vicki Gunvalson? Fans may never know.
The self-proclaimed O.G. of the O.C. appears to be returning to the Bravo reality series for Season 12. Her status was unclear following two contentious years with the franchise, but Vicki’s been a staple on “RHOC” for more than 10 years — why stop now? The insurance mogul seemingly confirmed her return in an Instagram post. She appeared in a photo with Brianna Stanko, who it seems may be joining “RHOC” in Season 12.
In her caption, Vicki shared that she was “having so much fun” at dinner with Brianna. She told her 675,000 followers that the blonde beauty had only recently moved to Orange County, California, from Atlanta, asking that they “give her some love.” Vicki used the hashtags “#rhocinthemaking” and “#season12,” which many took as a sign that she planned to appear in the upcoming season of the popular Bravo reality series.
Vicki also hinted at the fate of Kelly Dodd, who caused quite a stir during Season 11 — her first with “RHOC.” She gave a shout out to the controversial reality star in her Instagram caption, adding that both she and Brianna were “missing” her. Kelly was one of Vicki’s only friends during Season 11 of “RHOC” after the pair were ostracized by the rest of the cast for their questionable behavior.
Kelly came under fire from a majority of the cast for her foul mouth and quick temper during her first season on “RHOC.” Most notably, she feuded with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador — taking a dig about her husband’s affair during a cast trip to Ireland. Kelly was also not well-received by Heather Dubrow and Meghan King Edmonds, who introduced her to the rest of the “RHOC” cast.
