Why is 'RHOC' star Vicki Gunvalson selling her Orange County home?

Vicki Gunvalson was seen renovating her gorgeous Orange County home during a recent episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," so when fans heard that she would be selling the house, everyone was a bit confused.

Luckily, Gunvalson recently spoke out, explaining why she decided to get rid of the home so soon after making it her own.

“I’m just ready for a change,” Gunvalson recently revealed, according to a July 28 report by The Inquisitr. “My whole theory is that when life changes, you have to change everything.”

In the last few months, Gunvalson has made the final decisions regarding her ongoing divorce from Don Gunvalson, and has also been juggling her on-again, off-again relationship with Brooks Ayers. She's definitely had her hands full, so who can blame her for wanting to make a change and start fresh?

Earlier this month, Zillow reported that Gunvalson was selling the 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom Coto De Caza home, but when it comes to her location, Gunvalson said she isn't ready to leave Orange County.

“Oh you betcha I’m never leaving the OC,” she revealed, adding that she's already purchased a new home, which just so happens to be close to her former co-star, Lydia McLaughin. “It’s in Dana Point. It’s gorgeous.” According to Gunvalson, the home is at the top of a hill and boasts a 180-degree ocean view.

Although Gunvalson would love to sell her home quickly, her main concern seems to be that she find the right buyer -- one who won't paint over her custom, hand-painted mural.

“When I sell this house, whenever that may be, I hope no one paints over it, because just to me it’s a work of art,” she explained.
