Maybe they should have accepted the offers! According to an article on RADAR Online, former 'RHOC' OG's Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson are not permitted to film for the next year due to a non-compete clause in their contracts. This clause is in effect for for one year; according to Radar's source, Judge and Gunvalson will have to get permission from Bravo to participate in any other television filming. This makes sense why Gunvalson, 57, founder of COTO Insurance, is doing a podcast where she will be seen and not heard. Judge, 52, was offered a three episode arc for season 15, which she declined but she does have her booming CBD business as well as her gym, CUT Fitness.
Vicki, the only cast mate who had been there from day one, said she did not want to participate in the show if she would still be a "friend of"' as opposed to a full-time cast member and it seems Bravo heard her loud and clear. Andy Cohen, for his part, said they were looking to take the show into a new direction so we will see what happens. Still on the show will be Kelly Dodd, Emily Simpson, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Shannon Storms Beador. No word on Gina Kirschenheiter, as rumors swirled she had not been given an offer. Are you sad you won't be seeing Vicki or Tamra anymore on your television? You can still catch past seasons of 'RHOC' on Hulu.
