The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is returning full-time to the show after issuing an ultimatum to producers, a source exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
During Bravo Con, Vicki was asked if she would return for another season of RHOC after she was shockingly demoted to a “friend” for Season 14.
“I’m never coming back reduced again. Let’s just say that. I’m either in all the way, or out,” Vicki warned.
According to one insider, she was telling the truth.
“Vicki is going to be coming back as a full-time housewife next season,” the source claimed. “She gave Bravo an ultimatum. She said she would only come back if she were full-time, and they agreed.”
However, a separate insider insisted to Radar that "no casting decisions have been made."
She filed the suit in November, accusing the network and her co-star of defamation and libel after Kelly called her a “con woman” while taping an episode of the show.
Days later, she filed paperwork withdrawing the lawsuit.
“One of the reasons Vicki dropped the lawsuit was because she negotiated a deal that she would return to the show,” the insider told Radar.
However, the second insider claimed "there have been no agreements or deals made."

Vicki was humiliated when she was demoted to a “friend” after starring in the show for 13 seasons.
She had a brutal season with Kelly, constantly fighting with her on and off-camera.
Bling For Camera Time?
The other women bonded and had a drama-fueled season without Vicki.
Radar broke the news that Vicki was given a huge pay cut for Season 14, going from a high six-figure salary to much less for being a “friend.”
“Vicki is going to be full-time again,” the source confirmed to Radar.
