"She had to have her engagement filmed this season, and then next season her wedding will be filmed," the source said.

As Radar has extensively reported, in early February 2019, Vicki missed the first two weeks of filming RHOC amid her contract negotiations.

It was rumored she'd be demoted to "friend" status on the Bravo reality show.

But after returning from a Bahamas getaway with boyfriend Steve, Vicki shared a social media video to let fans know that she was still very much a full housewife!

Now, a source has told Radar, "Vicki is trying so hard this season. She's 'whooping it up' as much as she can. She never has an off day, and is up for anything that gets thrown her way."
