Vicki Gunvalson dropped a bombshell during a panel discussion at BravoCon last weekend when she told the crowd that she would not return to the Bravo reality series as a “Friend of a Housewife,” ever again.
“I’m never coming back reduced again. Let’s just say that. I’m either in all the way, or out,” Vicki Gunvalson warned.
“Vicki is going to be coming back as a full-time housewife next season,” a source told Radar. “She gave Bravo an ultimatum. She said she would only come back if she were full-time, and they agreed.”
However, a separate insider insisted to Radar that “no casting decisions have been made.”
“One of the reasons Vicki dropped the lawsuit was because she negotiated a deal that she would return to the show,” the insider told the tabloid.
The suit accused the network and Kelly Dodd of defamation and libel after Kelly called the business mogul a “con woman” while taping an episode of the show.
