Vicki Gunvalson does not have to face her shocking demotion alone. Gunvalson’s Real Housewives of Orange County co-star Tamra Judge reportedly feels terrible about her reduction in rank and is offering all the support she needs to deal with the drama.

“Tamra feels really bad for her, of course,” an inside source explained. “All of the ladies besides Kelly Dodd do.”

RHOC producers reportedly demoted Gunvalson for the upcoming season and want her to appear as a part-time friend. Sources close to the situation say that Gunvalson has not accepted the offer and is unlikely to agree to a lesser role. The OG of the OC has not confirmed her exit but did recently reveal that negotiations are ongoing.

An inside source told Radar Online that the decision to demote Gunvalson has been years in the making. With Gunvalson’s involvement winding down, her co-stars allegedly hope that she can develop a lasting relationship with her new boyfriend Steven Lodge, with whom she just enjoyed a romantic vacation in the Bahamas.

One of the reasons behind Gunvalson’s demotion is her ongoing feud with Kelly Dodd. Gunvalson escalated the fighting during the Season 13 reunion when she accused Dodd of abusing cocaine. After the reunion, Dodd threatened to quit the show unless Gunvalson was given the boot.

Sources also claim that filming for the new season of RHOC has already begun. Now that Gunvalson is only appearing as a friend, Bravo has reportedly replaced her with Braunwyn Windham-Burke, a mother of seven who is married to the CEO of Channelstars, Sean Burke.

It is unclear if Gunvalson will accept her new role or exit the series for good. She has been a part of the series since the beginning and has not expressed any interest in leaving.

Bravo has not announced when the new season of the Real Housewives of Orange County will premiere, so there is plenty of time for Gunvalson to negotiate a better role.

Tamra Judge will for sure be back for Season 14 of RHOC , in fact she already revealed she has started filming.

    If Vicki is done I'm done . I've watched this show from the beginning. If you can get rid of the OG of this show because of a basket case like Kelly Dodd then I'm out and do are about 20 of my friends . We got together every week to watch this show and s few others and Bravo just keeps changing the people we love for psychos . Oh well it was fun while it lasted . Good luck crazy Kelly you'll need it .

    I can't stand Vicki and stopped watching long ago because of her. She's such a narcissist, and that loud phony laugh, is too much to tolerate. Nothing about her is genuine.

    Vicki leaves and so do I. Keeping Kellie Dodd is one of the stupidest moves made. I do not care if Do Dr was mad at any of the ladies and the were asked to leave. Keeping the obnoxious, loud mouthed, nasty, unscrupulous Do Dr is the worst move [email protected]

    I started watching RHOC many years ago and then didn't have cable so didn't watch it for years until last year again. I used to enjoy watching Vicky, but when she made that very nasty comment to Kelly, I thought she needs to leave the show. I don't even like Kelly either. AND I'm really tired of Tamra purposely showing her tits every chance she can get, she is so annoying. They both need to go.

    Dodd is, simply, white trash. The show is junk now.

    Vicky IS RHOC as far as I am concerned. This gives me reason to stop watching. I've been watching since the program's Inception. But this is the end. Kelly should be gone instead of Vicky.

    Bye Vicki!!! And if Tamera feels so bad about it, why doesn't she show some REAL SUPPORT, and follow her out the door? Seriously .... worry about Eddie [your husband] right now! Instead of worrying about being "camera ready".

    I have been watching Vicki since day 1, but I feel like alot of boundaries have changed recently, since the incident on RHOA with Phaedra and Kandi, you can't put out lies that will cause an impact on an individual's life, and it should be like that, for years I took her side over Tamara, but Tamara has always said she was vindictive, but we never saw it until the reunion, now she just proved what Tamara and Shannon said about her spreading lies was true, Vicki is very insecure and I really feel like she regrets leaving Don

    Hope this starts a trend of being responsible for your words, deeds, and actions. Everyone needs to choose their words carefully, libel suits are real and necessary, reality TV needs some accountability. Vicki you did it to yourself, hope this is your wake-up call to be a kinder human being.

    So glad if it’s true. Vikki needs to go. However, the only person I like even less is kelly. The two of them only get drunk and yell at people. It’s boring. The show has to offer more than drunk fighting. I stopped watching the show because it just got ridiculous. It’s time for both of them to leave and get it together. Go be mothers and grandmothers and enjoy life. GOD bless them and I hope they both get help.
