Vicki Gunvalson would like nothing more than to see Tamra Judge fired before Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County.
Is RHOC headed for a major casting shakeup next season?
Gunvalson just sat down with In Touch Weekly and revealed where her relationship with Judge stands after Season 11.
While Gunvalson insists that she wants “peace,” the reality star’s strained relationship with Judge hasn’t gotten any better.
“I haven’t talked to Tamra in a couple of months. That’s typical,” Gunvalson explained. “She’s a TV friend, nothing more.”
According to Buddy TV, Gunvalson has had a difficult time making friends this season because of last year’s scandal with her then-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers.
Later, Gunvalson experienced a horrifying ATV accident while driving on the sand dunes in Glamis, California.
The accident was a terrifying experience for Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow, Kelly Dodd, and Judge, all of whom grew closer as a result.
“When they came to the house, we were all just looking at how fortunate we are to be together. It really makes you think about ‘why [do] we have to fight?” Gunvalson shared after the incident. “We can have disagreements, but why do we have to be mean to each other? We could die at any point in time.”
Despite the good feelings, the upcoming Ireland vacation will provide enough drama to bring things back to the way they were before the accident.
In fact, Vicki Gunvalson sat down with Amy Phillips and said that Bravo needs to eliminate some of the ladies in order to “get the garbage out” next season.
According to Buddy TV, Gunvalson’s comments about Judge aren’t all that surprising. After all, the scandal with Ayers alienated a lot the women on the show.
As fans will recall, Ayers lied about having cancer last season. Most of the ladies confronted him and Gunvalson about the lies, but neither of them admitted the truth.
After it was confirmed that Ayers lied about receiving cancer treatment, Gunvalson started to distance herself from him and they eventually split.
However, many of Gunvalson’s friends on RHOC refused to trust her again. This includes Judge and Meghan King Edmonds, both of whom have criticized Gunvalson this season.
Along with Gunvalson’s beef with Judge, her friendship with Beador is also strained.
“Shannon [Beador] and I are not in a good place,” Gunvalson stated. “She’s never going to move on from last season with Brooks and I don’t know why she made it about herself.”
Clearly, Gunvalson hasn’t earned her co-stars’ trust yet, though it now sounds like she just wants them off the show instead of repairing the relationships.
While Gunvalson has a lot of patching up to do, She Knows reports that her days on RHOC aren’t over yet.
“I think my story’s not done and I think I inspire a lot of women to take control of their lives,” Gunvalson concluded.
That being said, Season 11 is not over yet, and there’s no telling what will happen during the season reunion.
At the same time, Bravo won’t make any official casting announcements for next season until the current season is over.
For now, it looks like Gunvalson is trying to get ahead of the game and is doing everything in her power to remain on the reality show.
Whether or not Bravo producers take her comments into account, next season is yet to be seen. If they value Gunvalson over Judge, then Judge’s time on the show might be coming to an end.
Fans can watch new episodes of the Real Housewives of Orange County Monday nights on Bravo.
