The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to the air on June 20 — and RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that the explosive new season will start off with a bang !
A set insider dished that RHOC alum Vicki Gunvalson causes some of the biggest drama after the rest of the cast initially refuse to forgive her for all the lies she spewed about her ex, Brooks Ayers.
"They feel betrayed and don't know what they can trust," noted the insider.
But Gunvalson isn't completely shut out on the show! She quickly joins forces with new cast member Kelly Dodd, "who the girls all think is crazy," revealed the insider.
"Vicki and Kelly cause some serious havoc," continued the source. "The two women together are relentless and they're constantly stirring the pot with the other housewives, telling stories about them."
However, in an effort to mitigate the damage, show veterans, including Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow, decide to sit Gunvalson, 54, down to hash out their issues.
"They end up becoming closer than ever," said the source, claiming Gunvalson and Dodd were on the outs for a bit.
But another insider insisted that since filming wrap, they're back on again.
"Vicki and Kelly are very good friends and definitely on speaking terms," the source told Radar. "Vicki calls her her 'whoop it up girl.' They both definitely need an alliance!"
