Insurance agent Vicki Gunvalson has filed for divorce from her husband Donn after 16 years of marriage. The Real Housewives of Orange County star will return to the small screen as a single lady in the next season of the Bravo show.

Gunvalson released the following statement: "Donn has been an important part of my life and he will continue to be. Anyone who has gone through a divorce understands that this is a personal matter and a difficult time in our lives. It's amicable and we are not at odds with one another. It's just time. I would also like to thank all of you for the love and support that we have received."

This was Vicki's second marriage. The couple renewed their vows in front of the cameras in 2009.
