Vicki Gunvalson has revealed that she will walk from Real Housewives of Orange County if her orange is not reinstated next season.

Vicki was demoted to a friend of the show last season - and since her semi-absence from the show, ratings have gone up!

"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. I hope you have as much fun watching the show as I did living it in front of the cameras," she said at Bravo Con, per Bravo.

She says that being demoted was one of the hardest things she's been through, but if she doesn't return as a fully-fledged housewife next season - she will not be back.

"I signed the reduced role contract in January, and we started filming in February. And it was one of the hardest things I've ever done, so thank you to those who have sent me emails and supportive things. Let me just say this, I'm never coming back reduced again. Let's just say that. I'm either in all the way or out. It was horrible," she explained.
