Vicki Gunvalson threw a major tantrum backstage at part one of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion! Vicki delayed coming out for the reunion and screamed at a producer for portraying her as “thirsty” and a “bottom feeder.” The OG was reduced to the role of a friend of the show on season 14 after being a main cast member for 13 seasons.

Andy Cohen started the reunion without Vicki, 57, who was backstage throwing a tantrum because she didn’t want to be seated at the end of the couch. “I am pissed at you guys right now. I feel like a f**king fool,” Vicki yelled at one of the main RHOC producers. “I'm literally gonna leave. This is bulls**t. Where am I sitting? I wanna know. Where am I sitting? Am I coming in, sitting at the end like a little lap dog?”

She continued to fire off at the producer and said, “I'm not going in, sitting at the end. I started this show 15 years ago.”

“So you put me on, or just let me go!” she said in reference to her reduced role. “F**king just let me go if you don't want me anymore. Just let me go in grace!”

RHOC was the first season of Bravo franchise and Vicki is the longest star of Housewives. “This show has gone down because I am not the leader!” she screamed.

Vicki's fiancé, Steve Lodge, tried to defuse the situation. “The fact that they're in one or two acts already and now they're gonna throw me in like I'm thirsty. I feel like I'm with the bottom-feeders. I feel like I'm with the catfish!” she shot back.

The RHOC OG revealed she felt like a “has-been” because Andy, 51, carried on with the reunion taping without her. She ultimately went to film and sat closest to Andy. “I was waiting back there. My temperature's at like 150! Don't f**king do this to me,” she told Andy through gritted teeth.

Andy gave her a shady introduction after all the drama. “While the OG of the O.C. needs no introduction, knowing her, she'd probably have some words with me if she didn't get one,” he said. “So without further ado, please welcome Coto resident, insurance maven and the future Mrs. Lodge — Jane Roe! I mean, Vicki Gunvalson. Hi, Vicki!”

The Jane Roe comment was in reference to Vicki’s lawsuit in November against Kelly Dodd, Bravo and Evolution. Under the pseudonym Jane Roe, she alleged that Kelly made defamatory remarks about her on the cast trip to Key West. She quickly dropped the lawsuit.
