Not only has 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Vicki Gunvalson been demoted - her salary has also reportedly been slashed by a third!!!

Vicki, 57, will be going from earning $60,000 per episode to a mere $20,000, according to Radar Online.

“With her $60,000 per episode before this, her ‘RHOC’ salary was approximately $1.26 million,” said the source, noting that even if “The OG from the OC” appeared in all 21 episodes of Season 14 of the Bravo hit, she would earn $420,000 total.

That's a huge drop!

“A new Housewife begs for $5,000 an episode, so for Vicki to be getting that much she is very lucky,” the source added.

 “Vicki likely won’t be in all of the episodes this season."

If Vicki manages to bring the drama this season - or make peace with Kelly, she may earn back her beloved California orange during the next season.
