Gunvalson, 55, expressed to Radar that she was thrilled over King-Edmonds departure, claiming that she was "never friends with Meghan." According to multiple sources, the expecting wife of NFL star Jim Edmonds was "fired" after several of her co-stars, including Gunvalson, said that she was "tough to film with."

As fans know, King-Edmonds got super close with co-stars Tamra Judge, 50, and Shannon Beador, 54, last season. "Vicki's talking bad about Meghan really set Tamra off, again," the source revealed. "Tamra will always stick up for Meghan because she didn't feel the same way Vicki felt about her."

Will King-Edmonds exit affect Gunvalson and Judge's newly rekindled friendship? Apparently not! "Vicki and Tamra are trying to recruit their friends to fill in the empty spots. They do not want an all new cast and would leave themselves if it weren't for Kelly Dodd and Shannon," the source told Radar.
