title iconA hurt Vicki Gunvalson feels RHOC didn't invite her back with Tamra

Vicki Gunvalson admits that she is 'hurt' that Tamra Judge was not invited back to The Real Housewives of Orange County. Despite her desire to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County with Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson says she is "hurt" she wasn't asked.

Season two of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip featured the original housewives. Tamra and Vicki appeared in the spin-off's second season as members of the "ex-wives club.

Housewives from different franchises have the opportunity to discuss old feuds and make new friends. On RHUGT, however, the ladies and viewers complained about Vicki's behavior.

Vicki got dumped by her ex-fiance Steve Lodge shortly after the show was filmed. In Dorinda Medley's Blue Stone Manor, Vicki was distraught over the split and her mood was not improved.

Vicki complained about the Berkshires and the quiet, quaint lifestyle it offers. When Vicki shared her anti-vaccine beliefs with the group, Dorinda was also upset. There was only one invitation to return to the housewives' mashup, which was Tamra and Taylor Armstrong.

Tamra returns to RHOC while Taylor makes her debut following her transition from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She has spoken out after seeing two of her ex-wives return to the Bravo franchise for which she is an original creator.

Vicki told Kelly Dodd on The Rick and Kelly Show that she missed it. The filming is underway. I think it's about two weeks in. Tamra just got back from Italy. Vicki admitted feeling resentful about not being asked back as Tamra did.

Since Vicki was the last reigning OG of Real Housewives, her snub didn't go unnoticed. "It hurt." It hurts a lot," Vicki admitted. Vicki attributed her exit to her high salary demands but noted that viewership increased under her and Tamra's watch.

Our ratings were the best since we were on," Vicki said, adding, “You get what you pay for.”She responded one month after confirming her return to RHOC following her appearance on RHUGT.

The fact that Vicki wasn't invited back came off as a major gut punch considering everything she has shared about her personal life during her many years on the show. Tamra joined RHOC during season 3.

The veteran housewife experience she has may rekindle the fire needed to entice viewers, despite not technically being an original. Several cast shakeups have taken place in recent years, including the removal of Vicki and Tamra.

Vicki's absence will be felt now that Tamra is making her comeback. Since the Real Housewives of Orange County premiered on Bravo, Vicki has played a key role. Vicki's RHUGT behavior may have contributed to her exclusion. Shortly, her rocky love life may prove grounds for bringing her back.
