A big part of their friendship coming to an end began with Vicki setting up her ex-husband Michael with another woman shortly before the new year.

She ended up confronting her about it during an episode of RHOC this season.

Kelly also got a major jab in at Vicki's longtime beau Steve Lodge, calling him her "little b***h" during a taping of Watch What Happens Live.

She spoke with Entertainment Tonight earlier this week and revealed that she and Vicki are no longer on speaking terms. “We don’t talk at all,” she said. Kelly further explained that reliving the drama of seeing her and Steve go on double dates with Michael and another woman on the show has brought their friendship back to a bad place.

There was also a big mystery as to why Vicki and Shannon Beador were not at Tamra Judge's 51st birthday party last month. Turns out Kelly was the reason for why Vicki was a no show.

"I went to Tamra Judge’s house for her birthday in September, and Tamra showed me the text from Vicki, she’s like, ‘I’m not gonna be there if Kelly’s there.’”, she told ET.

All is not lost for them, however, as Kelly remains optimistic that their friendship can resume in the future. “It's always better to be friendly and cordial, you know?” she said. “It's harder to hold onto anger than to, like, release it. I've always had a great time with her. I mean, I'm hoping that, you know, we'll one day talk again.”
