Officially lost her orange! was the first to report that Vicki Gunvalson was demoted on the Real Housewives of Orange County — and she was left out of a brand new cast photo for the upcoming season 14!

The OG of the OC was not in the picture with the rest of the cast released by Bravo first to Us Weekly.

Despite Vicki’s desperate attempts to remain a full-time housewife, getting her boyfriend Steve Lodge to propose and “whooping it up” all season during filming, the proof was in the picture.

Bravo confirmed that Vicki was not one of the Housewives for Season 14 in the press release about the show, leaving her off the list with the other ladies and noting she “appears throughout the season.”

An insider previously snitched to Radar Vicki was demoted and given a “low-ball offer” to continue on the show.

"She's been demoted, but she hasn't agreed to take the offer," the source said. "She finally did take what was offered and promised to amp up the drama during the season."

The 57-year-old grandmother-of-two was the original Real Housewives star, making her debut on Bravo on March 21, 2006.

An emotional Vicki "did not take the news well," the insider spilled to Radar about her reaction at the time.

Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis first claimed Vicki was demoted. "Okay, so we're going to just jump right into it. I have some breaking Bravo news," Lewis said on his Sirius XM radio show on February 9. "I have a few Housewives friends, and there were some rumors swirling that Vicki Gunvalson was going to be demoted as a friend on the Real Housewives of Orange County."

The ‘RHOC’ Season 14 cast photo included newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheitr and Emily Simpson, all of whom were confirmed by the network as the “Housewives.”
