Will The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s 11th season be without Vicki Gunvalson? According to a new report, her co-stars sure hope so!
The cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County “are all trying to have Vicki fired,” a source told Radar Online on October 27.

Added a second source, “The ladies want to gang up and try and get Vicki ousted from the show. They think they would fare better if they all were together in trying to get rid of her.”
Throughout the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gunvalson has feuded with every single member of the cast, including Tamra Barney, Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow, and Meaghan King Edmonds, but luckily, the show’s creator, Andy Cohen, is on her side.
“Andy has always said that Vicki is his favorite Housewife out of them all.”
During The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 1o, the main story line was based around the cancer diagnosis of Brooks Ayers, the former boyfriend of Gunvalson. According to the cast, Ayers was lying, and continues to lie, about his diagnosis, and Gunvalson was likely in on the hoax. While Gunvalson has denied knowing of any fake cancer, the majority of her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars believe there was no way should could have not known about Ayers’ possible lies.
“The women all are sick of Vicki and feel like she shouldn’t be on the show anymore,” the source continued of The Real Housewives of Orange County cast. “They’ve been talking about refusing to film with her.”
Although the 11th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County has yet to be officially confirmed, there have been online rumors, claiming the cast has already been contacted about returning to the network for the news season, which will likely air during the summer of 2016. And while the cast of the Bravo reality show may be refusing to film with Gunvalson, they won’t be able to boot her from the show due to her contract with the network.
“[Gunvalson] made sure that her deal said that only she can break the contract. She is one of the creators and founders of the show so she has to quit or resign in order to end her Housewife position.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County began airing in 2006, and at the time, Gunvalson was one of the original wives, along with Kimberly Bryant, Jo De La Rosa, Lauri Peterson, and Jeana Keough. The first season, which aired from March until May, consisted of eight episodes, but in the seasons that followed, the episode count continued to grow, reaching an all-time high for Season 7 with a whopping 23 episodes.
While many housewives have come and gone, Gunvalson’s role on The Real Housewives of Orange County has remained the same, and judging by Radar Online‘s report, that may not change for a while — at least unless Gunvalson has had enough. Still, that reportedly won’t stop her cast members from doing what they can to minimize her role on the series.
“They want to use the ‘she goes or we go’ card but they’re afraid that Bravo will fire all of them and keep Vicki,” Radar Online‘s source added.
Though Gunvalson is the only remaining original cast member, Barney has been with the show for a while, as well, having joined The Real Housewives of Orange County cast during its third season.
