Vicki Gunvalson has had a rough couple of weeks.

The Real Housewives of Orange County reality star recently broke up with Brooks Ayers just months after the death of her mother and now it seems he is secretly cashing in on his connection with Gunvalson.

According to RadarOnline, Gunvalson's ex has making bank by telling his side of his cancer lies in secret interviews.

And now, it appears that Gunvalson has quit the show.

According to the Inqusitr, following filming of the Season 10 finale, Gunvalson, who is the longest-running star of The Real Housewives of Orange County, took to her Instagram account, where she wrote, “What a shocking season finale. Glad it’s over. Time to move on to a bigger and brighter future.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County has yet to be renewed for an 11th season, and if Vicki Gunvalson did indeed quit, it would be highly unlikely the show would go on. reports that two seasons ago, Vicki Gunvalson, who reportedly makes $850,000 per season, told them that RHOC producers told her that she would lose her housewife status if she refused to film without Brooks.

This comes closely on the heels of news that Brooks Ayers traveled to New York to film a secret interview with Andy Cohen about his cancer scandal.

Bravo apparently paid for the trip although Brooks was never an official cast member.

“Not only did they fly him first class to New York and put him up in a very nice hotel, but they also paid him $10,000!” a source told the publication. “The whole thing lasted about four hours.”

“Bravo had wanted Brooks to come to the reunion taping, but he refused. There was no way he was going to go into that hornets’ nest,” the source adds.

Before Vicki Gunvalson appeared at Friday's taping of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion show, a source told RadarOnline that the reality star is hurt by what transpired in New York.

“Vicki just feels so betrayed that Brooks chose a payday over her, and is refusing to tell her anything about the interview. She stood up for him, and doesn’t want to look like a fool to her fans.”

Only time will tell if Vicki Gunvalson really did quit RHOC on Friday. What do you think? Is it time for her to move on?
