"I miss it," Vicki candidly told former co-star Kelly Dodd on her podcast, The Rick & Kelly Show. "I know they are filming right now. I think it's two weeks in. Tamra just got back from Italy."
Regarding the producers' decision to not ask her back, Vicki said, "It hurt. It stings a little bit — actually, a lot."
Switching gears, Vicki chalked her firing up to being too "expensive." She also didn't hesitate to take a dig at the cast.
"I did get expensive. I'm okay with that. I'm worth it," she told Kelly. "The ratings were the best they've ever been when we were on. You get what you pay for!"
