The OG of the OC has quit.
Vicki Gunvalson took to Instagram to announce she is leaving “The Real Housewives of Orange County” after 14 seasons. It’s crazy too think that the show first premiered in 2006.
“I will always be the OG of the OC, but it’s time to say goodbye to ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County,'” she wrote. “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,'” she promised. “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.”
Andy Cohen also took to Instagram to celebrate the OG. See his emotional tribute below.
While I will miss seeing Vicki and her antics on screen, I do think it’s time for her to throw in the towel. The show is going in a different direction and a Vicki-less cast will feel fresh. Right now Tamra, Kelly, Emily & Braunwyn have been seen filming. It could be the ladies screen testing as no cast announcements has been made by Bravo or Andy Cohen.
