Kelly, 44, posted a screenshot of her comments section from a recent post to Instagram Stories. "I'm done with Shannon! How are you going to deal with her?" one fan asked. "Same way I have with the other 5 that got fired!! We will see," Kelly responded, referring to Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge's exits from the hit show. Peggy Sulahian, Heather Dubrow, and Meghan King Edmonds also dropped off as main cast members during Kelly's time on RHOC.

"If one had to come back, who would you pick? Vicki or Tamra," another person asked. "Can't pick!! What's the lesser of two evils ... Vicki is the lesser," Kelly quipped.

Vicki and Kelly have had a notoriously contentious relationship. Vicki even filed a defamation lawsuit against Kelly but decided to drop it before the explosive season 14 reunion. Tamra was reportedly "desperately trying" to get Kelly fired in August 2019.

Vicki announced she would not be returning on Friday, January 24. "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 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," she wrote on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Tamra opted to throw in the towel after being offered a reduced role to wrap up her storyline. "It’s been a wild 12 years. But it’s time for me to move on, I’m sad to go but I’m very excited about my future. Love you guys," she said in her own Instagram statement.
