Vicki Gunvalson has officially left the Real Housewives of Orange County building, and the show’s executive producer, Andy Cohen, hopped on his social media to pay tribute to the OG of the OC.
“I remember the first reunion I did with Vicki Gunvalson. Occasionally our eyes would meet as I grilled the other women, and she would wink at me optimistically and effervescently as both of her deep dimples shone,” The Watch What Happens Live host wrote alongside a picture of him hugging Vicki.
“She kept winking at me Year after year, and it always made my heart smile. Vicki is an original, who remained her authentic self from her Family Van-freakout through her last reunion. It’s so hard to remain exactly who you are after being on television for so long, but Vicki is one of a kind. Thank you for everything, @vickigunvalson – what a ride. And it’s not over. (This pic is actually from the Season 3 Reunion, and I always really liked it..) ❤️ 🍊 #RHOC”
Vicki announced her exit from the show days ago and her announcement was quickly followed by Tamra Judge.
Vicki had vowed not to return to the show unless she was reinstated as a housewife. She was not offered an orange for next season and so instead, decided to walk.
