Well, it appears that Bravo exes may not feel compelled to bring Vicki Gunvalson back to the show full time, as ratings have only gotten better since her demotion to a friend of the show.

TVByTheNumbers.com reports that the most recent episode of the show came in second place, with their 18-49 demographic rating rising from 0.4 to 0.5.

The current season premiered in August to1.42 million viewers, up from the previous season's 1.41 million viewers, TVByTheNumbers.com reports.

Viewers had complained that OG Vicki had become boring and overly negative over previous seasons. Despite being only a friend of the show, Vicki has managed to whip up a massive amount of drama - accusing her frenemy Kelly Dodd of running a train with eight men.

She also recently filed a lawsuit against Kelly, accusing her of defaming her on the show after Kelly called her a "con woman" and alleged that she "prays on older people."
