Vicki Gunvalson is taking her demotion on the 'Real Housewives of Orange County' in her stride, and released a touching message to her fans via Instagram.

"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 in a different role," she wrote sharing pics alongside her castmates Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge.

 "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 for more of the Tres Amigas," she continued.

There have been rumors that Vicki has been given the boot for some new blood. Kelly Dodd's pal Braunwyn Windham-Burke has taken Vicki spot and joined the cast as a new housewife.
