Vicki Gunvalson on Why She Was Fired, and Shades Season 16 Cast: "You Get What You Pay For," as Kelly Dodd Calls Newbies “Cheap Talent”

Vicki Gunvalson was off the air for nearly three years till the Actual Housewives of Orange County star returned for a mashup sequence: Actual Housewives Final Ladies Journey.

Many viewers have identified the declining rankings of RHOC since solid members like Vicki, Kelly Dodd, and Tamra Decide left the present. On the time of Vicki’s firing, she earned round $750,000 every season, in line with Radar On-line.

In an interview for Kelly’s The Rick & Kelly Show, Vicki mentioned a motive why she was let go, admitting that she “did get costly.”

“And I’m pleased with that, I’m value it,” she defined. “The rankings have been one of the best they’ve ever been once we have been on, and I, you get what you pay for.”

Vicki continued, “So that you pay for a brand new lady coming in at lower than $50,000. I don’t even know what [salary] the brand new women are coming in anymore.”

Kelly, her former colleague, added, “However that’s why the rankings aren’t there. I feel it’s low-cost expertise.”

Vicki then admitted, “I miss it… I do know they’re filming proper now. I feel it’s two weeks in. Tamra simply received again from Italy. And it hurts. It stings a bit of bit. Truly loads a bit.”

Later within the feedback, Kelly wrote, “They have to cancel the entire OC as a result of all people’s woke now.”

Within the newest season of the present, the group dynamic centered on Heather Dubrow, and only a few castmates questioned or challenged her. Many followers consider this contributed to the low rankings and led to the eventual rehiring of Tamra.

As Vicki talked about, the solid is now filming for season 17. Has Tamra shaken up the group dynamic? Or is Heather nonetheless on the throne?
