What's in Vicki Gunvalson's Purse?

UPDATE (MAY 18, 1:28 P.M.): We already know where The Real Housewives of Orange County will be jetting off to for their girls' trip next season. Spoiler alert: It's Jamaica!

How to Watch

Watch RHOC on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Head over to Jet Set for all the details on the upcoming season's cast trip, including where the ladies stayed, where they ate, and what they did.

The original story continues below.

So far, we've announced that Kelly Dodd, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador will be returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 13. But they're not the only RHOC veterans we'll see next season. 

None other than the OG of the RHOC Vicki Gunvalson will be back for Season 13. We first met Vicki and her family in the very first season of RHOC in 2006, and she has appeared in every single season of the series ever since. 

Last season of RHOC, we saw Vicki's romance with boyfriend Steve Lodge blossom. Unfortunately, her friendships with Tamra and Shannon were not in such a good place. After some emotional moments with Tamra during the ladies' trip to Iceland (Vicki also experienced a health scare during that vacation), Vicki's relationship with Tamra and Shannon seemed to move in a positive direction at the Season 12 reunion as the three embraced during the sit-down's conclusion.

Since the reunion, Vicki and Steve's relationship has remained as strong as ever. The couple celebrated their second anniversary in April. She visited her daughter, Briana Culberson, and her family in her new home of North Carolina after they moved out of Orange County last fall. Vicki has also shown her support for Briana, who has undergone multiple surgeries over the past few months.

So there you have it. Vicki, Shannon, Tamra, and Kelly will all be back for more RHOC next season. Their Season 12 castmates Meghan King Edmonds, Lydia McLaughlin, and Peggy Sulahian previously confirmed that they will not be returning next season. 

Who knows what Season 13 will bring for Vicki and the rest of the RHOC squad? 

For now, see more of Vicki through the years, below.
