These days, Vicki is spending more time at her condo in Puerto Vallarta with her fiance Steve Lodge as she says being by the beach in Mexico is ‘one of my favorite places in the world.’

The small screen personality, who was born in Illinois, purchased the Orange County home 26 years ago and had it remodeled over the years, adding higher ceilings.

The home is a bit of a star itself as it was the backdrop for many of her scenes during Gunvason’s time on the Bravo reality TV show.

The ex wife of Donn Gunvalson and Michael J. Wolfsmith has said in the past she has a lot of great memories in the house.

‘My children, Michael and Briana, were raised in this house and my 1st grandson Troy came home from the hospital here after being born, and lived here while Ryan [Briana’s husband] was deployed,’ she said.

Vicki continued: ‘I went through a marriage in the house. I went through a divorce while in this house. I went through another relationship and a breakup in this house.

In January Gunvalson announced on Instagram that she was leaving the Real Housewives Of Orange County.

The star was on the program from season one and was the only Housewife to have lasted through all 14 seasons that have aired so far.

However in a humiliating turn she was demoted from full Housewife status to ‘friend’ of the show for her latest season and has now decided to exit entirely.

‘I will always be the OG of the OC, but it’s time to say goodbye to The Real Housewives of Orange County,’ she began her statement.

‘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,’ Vicki wrote.

‘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 added: ‘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.’

Real Housewives producer Andy Cohen responded to Vicki’s departure with a sweet throwback photo of the two of them hugging.

‘I remember the first reunion I did with Vicki Gunvalson. Occasionally our eyes would meet as I grilled the other women, and she would wink at me optimistically and effervescently as both of her deep dimples shone,’ he wrote.

‘She kept winking at me Year after year, and it always made my heart smile. Vicki is an original, who remained her authentic self from her Family Van-freakout through her last reunion. It’s so hard to remain exactly who you are after being on television for so long, but Vicki is one of a kind.’

He wrapped up: ‘Thank you for everything, @vickigunvalson- what a ride. And it’s not over. (This pic is actually from the Season 3 Reunion, and I always really liked it..)’.

In November Vicki filed and then withdrew a defamation lawsuit against her co-star Kelly Dodd, Bravo and its parent company NBCUniversal. 

On the reunion of the latest season Vicki complained of feeling like a ‘has-been’ amid the newer cast members of the Bravo show.

Afterward she hinted at her departure on social media, telling a fan in the comments that ‘unless they make some serious changes’ she would bow out. 

‘Vicki’s demotion may turn into her getting fired completely,’ said a Radar Online source at the beginning of this month.

‘Vicki has no leverage anymore. The execs are in charge and they don’t want the show to be the same. All of the fighting, the lawsuits, it was difficult.’
