Vicki Gunvalson Announces Exit From 'RHOC': 'It's Time To Say Goodbye' - MTO News

Vicki Gunvalson, the longest-running cast member of Real Housewives of Orange County, has announced her exit from the show following the decision not to promote her back to a full housewife.

Last year, Vicki was demoted to "friend" of the show, but in the previous season's reunion show, Vicki let producers know that she would walk if her original position as housewife were not reinstated.

"I will always be the OG of the OC, but it's time to say goodbye to The Real Housewives of Orange County. It's been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want thank all of you for your support, for your love and for 'whooping it up' with me along the way," a message to her followers read on Instagram.

It seems as though Vicki may already have another trick up her sleeve:

"I've been working on new projects that will be exciting, empowering and inspirational. My podcast with Westwood One will be launching soon and I will have much more to say about this on 'Whoop it up with Vicki'. I hope you will join me with my new journey so please stay tuned. I love all my fans, and I want to thank Bravo and Evolution for this incredible experience which my family and I have will never forget. #bravo #rhoc #whoopitipwithvicki @westwoodone @bravo @whoopitupwithvicki"

Viewers of the show complained about Vicki's boring storylines and her constant negativity and urged the network to get her off the show.
