Things are taking a turn for the worse in regards to Vicki Gunvalson's relationship with her fellow cast mates. In fact, according to Radar Online, the ladies of The Real Housewives of Orange County are doing their best to get Gunvalson booted from the show.
"The women are all trying to have Vicki fired," an inside source told the outlet. "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."
Gunvalson has been the source of a lot of controversy this season. For the most part, her problems have centered on her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, and the allegations that he has been lying about having cancer. For the most part, Gunvalson has stood beside Ayers despite everything that has been said, which has led to her gaining quite a few enemies this season.
Most notably, Gunvalson has been feuding with Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Meghan King Edmonds throughout this past season. With the situation surrounding Ayers becoming a drawn out affair, a lot of the ladies have grown tired of Gunvalson. In fact, things have reached the point where they may refuse to film if she isn't fired from the series.
"The women all are sick of Vicki and feel like she shouldn't be on the show anymore," the source revealed. "They've been talking about refusing to film with her."
If the ladies do boycott filming for Season 11, then it would certainly be an interesting development, as producers will have quite the decision to make. However, Vicki Gunvalson's contract and her relationship with Andy Cohen might make it all but impossible for them to fire her.
"Andy has always said that Vicki is his favorite Housewife out of them all," the insider revealed. "She 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."
Additionally, if the ladies do band together in an effort to get rid of Gunvalson, it isn't certain that the show will take their side. In fact, things could get worse for the ladies and lead to some of them, if not all of them, being fired as well.
"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," the source added.
The threats of being fired are very real for some of the women on the show. According to Reality Tea, Gunvalson has expressed a desire in the past to see Edmonds depart the show after one season.
"She's trying to stay relevant on the show – and if I have anything to do with it she will be fired after this season," Gunvalson said in regards to Edmonds' accusations against Ayers.
At the same time, fans seem to be fairly split on the issue, with some taking Gunvalson's side and others not. Just how much this weighs on the show's decision to fire Gunvalson or anyone else on the show is not known.
Meanwhile, the current season of The Real Housewives of Orange County continues to wrap up with the third part of the reunion, which is set to air this coming Sunday night on Bravo. With the revelations continuing to unfold in these last few episodes, only time will tell how many more enemies Gunvalson will make and whether or not she will be returning in Season 11.
