Vicki Gunvalson is making her exciting return to Real Housewives of Orange County. However, it isn’t as an official Housewife nor is it as a “friend of.” Instead, Vicki is coming back to the show for a more dramatic reason. This is also to create a payoff for one of the year’s biggest storylines.

Here is why Vicki is coming back to RHOC and what it means for the Bravo reality show.

The Reason Vicki Gunvalson Is Coming Back To RHOC

Vicki Gunvalson is coming back to Real Housewives of Orange County and it is in a cameo role. TMZ released the news that she was coming back and it turns out that one Housewife called her in to confront a former friend. This is meant to pay off the huge feud between the former Tres Amigas.

Vicki is coming back, but she is not reclaiming her orange. She also isn’t coming in as a “friend” either for the series. This is a cameo appearance that should lead to an explosive confrontation. It turns out that RHOC Housewife Shannon Beador has called iN Vicki to help her lay a smackdown on their former friend Tamra Judge.

Shannon invited Vicki Gunvalson to a big group outing on Thursday. All the cast members were there. The idea was for Vicki, 61, to confront Tamra. However, there were two ideas for how this would go down. RHOC producers hoped the Tres Amigas would hash things out and move on from their feud. That isn’t what happened. Instead, the night turned into a massive battle between the three women.

It seems that, by the end of the night, the relationship was more broken than it was before.

What Caused Tres Amigas To Split On RHOC?

Tamra Judge said she split from the Tres Amigas because she didn’t want to enable Shannon Beader after her DUI arrest. Tamra also blamed scheduling conflicts from their comedy project. However, her comments about Shannon fractured their friendships. To add to the blame game, Tamra also said that Shannon and Vicki were talking about her behind her back.

The sides then went their different directions. Vicki claims Tamra blindsided her with the split. Vicki and Shannon went on to announce their two-person comedy tour. Meanwhile, Tamra worked on her Two T’s In A Pod podcast with Teddi Mellencamp. Teddi and Vicki have never been friends.

With the reconciliation not happening on the upcoming Real Housewives of Orange County episode, it seems like there might be money in having Vicki back again on the series. If Vicki returns more as a recurring guest, expect the season to be more explosive than ever.

What are your thoughts on Real Housewives of Orange County bringing back Vicki Gunvalson to confront Tamra Judge? Was it any surprise the two didn’t reconcile? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
