Former Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson, and Tamra Juge may already be plotting the next move following their exits from the Bravo show, but thanks to a clause in the contract with the television network - they won't be able to be on television for another year.

"Vicki and Tamra have a one-year non-compete clause in their contracts," a source told Radar Online, adding that "they will have to get special permission to film any other television shows for the next year."

Vicki announced her exit from the show after she was told by Bravo that she could return, but only as a friend of the show. Vicki had previously stated that she would only return to the franchise as a full housewife.

Tamra announced her exit just a day later. According to reports, Tamra was offered just $20,000 for each of her three episodes for season 15, compared to her usual $900,000 RHOC salary.
