RHOC: Vicki Gunvalson Out -- Andy Cohen Reacts To Her Departure
There have been rumors surrounding Vicki Gunvalson's departure from the Real Housewives of Orange County for months now. The OG housewife officially announced that she will be leaving the show after 14 seasons via social media.
From her latest antics to her reunion breakdown -- all signs pointed to Vicki saying goodbye.
She took to Instagram where she posted a photo of herself alongside a caption that read: ' I will always be the OG of the OC, but it’s time to say goodbye to The Real Housewives of Orange County. It’s been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want thank all of you for your support, for your love and for “whooping it up” with me along the way. I’ve been working on new projects that will be exciting, empowering and inspirational. My podcast with Westwood One will be launching soon and I will have much more to say about this on “Whoop it up with Vicki” . I hope you will join me with my new journey so please stay tuned. I love all my fans, and I want to thank Bravo and Evolution for this incredible experience which my family and I have will never forget. #bravo #rhoc #whoopitipwithvicki @westwoodone @bravo @whoopitupwithvicki,'
She received mixed responses. Some where sad to see her go and proclaimed that they would stop watching while others celebrated.
Andy Cohen, the man who started the original Housewives franchise, posted a heartfelt tribute.
His caption read: ' 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. 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..)'
What do you think about season 15 without Vicki?
