'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Vicki Gunvalson allowed Bravo camera to capture her engagement on camera - a promise she made in order to keep her position on the show.

It was rumored that Vicki was being demoted from housewife to friend of the show, after her boring storylines and beef with co-star Kelly Dodd. Vicki accused Kelly of taking cocaine during last season's reunion show - and Kelly threatened to quit.

Radar Online had reported that Vicki had promised to get engaged in the upcoming season, to hold onto her housewife status.

“They were filming because she promised the producers Steve would propose when they told her they wanted to fire her,” the source told Radar.

Over the weekend, Vicki posted a picture of her and her fiance Steve Lodge, in a post captioned "I said “YES”. ♥️💍 #engaged #happy #mylove," while showing off her ring.

“She had to have her engagement filmed this season, and then next season her wedding will be filmed,” the Radar snitch added.
