Vicki Gunvalson Explains Why She Urged Fans To ‘Boycott’ RHOC Season 15 And Shades Kelly Dodd; Admits She Finds It “Shocking” That Bravo Keeps Bringing Kelly “Back Every Year”

Vicki Gunvalson used her podcast, Whoop It Up with Vicki, to open about her exit from The Real Housewives of Orange County and is setting the record straight on why she recently told a fan to boycott the show's upcoming fifteenth season.

“I love Bravo, but they don’t love me, so when somebody said something about the show is going to go down without you I’m like, ‘Just boycott it!'” Gunvalson told HollywoodLife during the latest episode of her podcast

“I don’t really mean for them to be boycotted. I meant for — The truth is, I don’t really believe that the show is going to be strong without us. If the ratings are down — This was my comeback on it. It was 10 or 11 or 12 o’clock at night after I got done working and somebody said, ‘The show is not going to be the show without you and Tamra [Judge] on it,’ and I said, ‘Just boycott it then.’ And it came out.”

“It was a one sentence in the fact that if the ratings are down, then they’re going to realize that they made a mistake,” Vicki revealed. “I don’t really mean for them to be boycotted. I meant for — The truth is, I don’t really believe that the show is going to be strong without us.”

Gunvalson admits that she' still been emotional about her exit from the Bravo hit reality series.

“My feelings have been all over the map and some days I’m like, ‘OK, good,’ Vicki added. “This is the first year in 15 years I don’t have to cry every day. When it’s either airing or filming or my feelings are hurt about something and then I thought, ‘I’m not ready not to cry anymore.’ It was part of the blood in my veins. It was like a natural high, filming and being a part of the cast and doing all of the press afterwards and it was just part of my DNA. I loved doing it, so then I got back to being bitter and being fortunate that I had that opportunity and now I’m kind of in the middle of the road. I’m not sad and I’m not happy.”

“What are they going to think, that I just poof died? That I’m gone?” Vicki questioned. “So for me, first time in fifteen years not having anybody in my home every day for 4 months, it’s going to be hard for me to watch it. I have a sense of ownership on it and it’s crazy that I do, but I do.”

While Vicki and Tamra Judge will not be returning to the series, the OG of the OC explains that she finds it shocking that Bravo keeps bringing Kelly Dodd back.

“The truth is, I don’t really believe that the show is going to be strong without us,” Vicki said on her podcast via HollywoodLife. “If Kelly and Shannon [Beador] are really good friends? I don’t know. It’s per season, you know? There’s no length there. Kelly will say whatever she wants to say no matter what and has no recourse. Bravo brings her back every year and it’s just shocking to me sometimes…”
