Your First Look at The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17

If there’s one thing about Vicki Gunvalson, it’s that she’s gonna whoop it up. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum has done tequila shots in Mexico and keg stands at college parties. And in a recent Instagram post, she teased her upcoming RHOC cameo by showing off a more recent keg encounter.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

To understand Vicki’s latest Instagram post, let’s back it up to 2007. As shown in Season 3 of RHOC, Vicki decided to surprise her son, Michael Wolfsmith, at college.

While she was there, the mother of two attended a football game, enjoyed some chips and salsa, and did her first keg stand. As she wrote in an old blog post about the incident: “I had no idea what I was getting myself into.”

That wouldn’t be Vicki’s last keg stand. To tease her cameo on RHOC Season 17, which you can catch a glimpse of in the clip above, Vicki posted a photo of herself keg standing yet again.

This time, it wasn’t frat boys holding her in the air. The photo shows Vicki surrounded by the ladies of RHOC, and she tagged her old “amigas” Tamra Judge and Shannon Storms Beador

“Some things never change… the OG of the OC is coming soon to your TVs!” she wrote in her caption. It’s been said that Tamra will be “lit” this season, but it looks like she’s not the only one indulging in a drink or two.

The Tres Amigas are back

Shannon and Tamra spilled some tea on Vicki’s appearance during an Instagram Live with Bravo TV. The livestream took place shortly after the trailer dropped, revealing that the OG of the OC would make an appearance. 

“There’s just something about it. When the three of us get together, it’s just an instant silly crazy,” Shannon said about the Tres Amigas. Tamra piped in, adding that it was “a dream come true” to see Vicki on the show again. “We really have so much fun together. What I love about our friendship is that it’s genuine,” the fitness buff said. 

Don’t get it twisted: The new season isn’t all silliness and drinking games. In the closing moments of the Instagram Live, the RHOC cast members were asked to come up with three words to describe Season 17. “Backstabbing, lying, epic,” they agreed.

Well, no wonder Vicki needed a drink!
