This isn’t the first time Vicki has been MIA from her Housewives duties. In February, multiple sources confirmed to US Weekly that though filming was well underway for the other women, she had not started.

The buzz surrounding her possible demotion only intensified when former Bravo star Jeff Lewis discussed the rumors on his SiriusXM radio show. “I cannot confirm nor deny,” he said at the time. “However, that’s the word on the street.” RHOC star Kelly Dodd was a special guest star on the episode and she agreed with Jeff.

In addition to her demotion, a source told RadarOnline.com that Vicki also took a massive pay cut. The insider claimed the RHOC veteran “took a nearly 50 percent pay cut per episode, and she has no guarantee for episodes.”
