It's official! After 14 seasons, Vicki Gunvalson has announced she will not be returning to the 'RHOC' in any capacity. A few weeks ago, RADAR Online announced only Shannon Storms Beador, Tamra Judge, Emily Simpson, Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke had been offered contracts to return for season 15. Gina Kirschenheiter was still awaiting her return letter and Gunvalson, the self-proclaimed 'OG of the OC' was still looking at being a "friend of," once again. She had made it very clear she would not come back if she was not offered full-time status. Just a few days after the RADAR article, Bravo's own Andy Cohen said no offers had even been made yet. Welp, looks like the offers have gone out and Gunvalson was not happy. In an Instagram statement, she wrote, below her original housewives head shot:

"I will always be the OG of the OC but it's time to say goodbye to The Real Housewives of Orange County. It's been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want to thank all of you for your support, for your love and for "whooping it up" with me along the way. 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". 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. #bravo #rhoc #whoopitupwithvicki @westwoodone @bravo @whoopitupwithvicki”

And there you have it. She is now gone and many fans seem saddened by this whereas others on social media were calling for the firing of her, Judge, and Beador during all of last season. She was a part of a cancer scam with ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers and has had less than positive behavior, often being judgmental. However, many liked the drama and entertainment she brought with her. Last season, she got engaged to boyfriend, Steve Lodge so maybe she was hopeful she would get her status back and Bravo would pay for the wedding so they could film it. Who knows. In any case, we doubt this is the last we will hear about it and cannot wait to hear/read what Kelly Dodd has to say about this! What are your thoughts? Let us know!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of imdb.com When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of amazon.com With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
