Vicki Gunvalson is as integral to The Real Housewives of Orange County as the oranges the women hold on the title card. Not only is she the OG star of the Real Housewives franchise, but she’s a veteran Bravolebrity of the highest degree.


So, imagine our shock when the 52-year-old reality star took to Facebook on August 19 and shared a pretty ominous message. “All things come to an end,” she wrote Tuesday, prompting fans to start freaking out — so much so, in fact, that Vicki had to clarify her cryptic message.

“Some have asked if I’m leaving #RHOC because of my last post,” Vicki wrote later that day. “I’m not going anywhere!! What I meant is that another great season has come to an end and I am excitedly looking forward to the next season — with more drama and more love coming your way. I absolutely love the show and all of you. #OGfromtheOC.” Collective phew, everyone!

We don’t really know what we’d do without our weekly doses of “woo hoo” with Vicki. While she’s been known to bring the drama on past seasons, Vicki was noticeably different this season and tended to stay far away from the drama swirling around her. Homegirl is really comfortable just being herself on the camera and we can’t get enough. Thank goodness we can count on our favorite OG from the OC when Season 10 kicks off next year!

Are you glad Vicki isn’t leaving the show? Hit the comments and sound off!
