EXCLUSIVE: Vicki Gunvalson Played A Part In Getting Rid Of Gretchen Rossi From RHOC
While The Dirty exclusively reported that washed up former star of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gretchen Rossi, was blaming an alleged stalker for losing her spot on the show, we have now learned there was more to it than that.
An insider dished to The Dirty that, “Vicki Gunvalson had gained a lot of power within the franchise by Gretchen’s last season on the show.”
“Bravo has always made a big fuss about keeping one original cast member on the show,” the source continued, “so Vicki clearly had more weight than Gretchen.”
“At the time, Vicki hated Gretchen, and probably aided in her not being asked back,” our insider added. “Vicki likely wanted Gretchen gone and probably was vocal about her feelings to production.”
While the pair now appear to be friends from social media posts, our source reminded us that, “Let’s not forget that Vicki was right alongside Tamra in trying to take Gretchen down, helping to show images [from The Dirty] of Gretchen that were not of a flattering nature on Gretchen’s last reunion. Vicki definitely couldn’t stand her and this certainly didn’t help her case in coming back to the show.”
