The rumors that Vicki Gunvalson of The True Housewives of Orange County would not return as a full-time actor seem to be true.
The last floor of the franchise can not be seen on the new cast, which still surprised the fans. Tamra Judge re-released the US Weekly Cast photo and the comments began to flood her post. One person wrote, "I know Vicki can be a real B, but she started the housewives and should be involved!"
Even though actors like Kelly Dodd insisted that Gunvalson would not be a full-time actor, the fans still seemed shocked.
Gunavlson posts, but not on "RHOC".
Almost every RHOC star has posted the photo, except Gunvalson. In her latest Instagram post, it was instead about the "Tres Amigas". She wrote, "Tres Amigas is getting ready for Season 14." She recently wrote, "Is not that the truth? How many have you found again? Many thanks to @stevelodge_oc for inviting me to lunch 3 years ago when I thought there were no good men anymore. I love you."  Otherwise, Gunvalson seems to focus on their commercial and financial education, with recent tweets containing links to financial articles and teaching children's financial responsibilities. "How to give your children the right financial lessons," she wrote with a link.
But she seems to be a big part of the show.
Bravo released the RHOC trailer, premiered on August 6. Although Gunvalson is not on the cast photo as it can be seen, it seems to be everywhere on the show, at least according to the trailer.
Dodd and Gunvalson, who became sworn enemies last season, seem to be out of place combat on the other side. The trailer shows the women in the dispute. At some point, Dodd addresses the allegations of drug abuse Gunvalson had made against her during the meeting.
In recent months, Dodd seemed to nudge the bear and mock Gunvalson every chance she had. Dodd also wrote on Instagram that Gunvalson goes away when she's on the show. "I will not be there next year when she's in. I will not sell my soul for this show."
End of an era
Although Gunvalson will still emerge, the number of real housewives OGs are dwindling rapidly. The franchise recently lost to Lisa Vanderpump of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills . Vanderpump and Kyle Richards were the last original actors in this series.
When Nene Leake's The Real Housewives of Atlanta left, she was the only original cast member in the series. Fortunately for the fans, Leakes has returned to the show. But franchise companies with real OG perseverance seem to be both New York and New Jersey.
