You know who could use a drink right about now? Andy Cohen. You know he’d just like to throw back a stiff glass of Vicki’s Vodka to get a bit more press out of this story, but alas, that won’t be happening any time soon. It’s a shame, given the now defunct brand is giving Andy’s clubhouse some free (?) publicity.
Remember when Vicki Gunvalson tried to follow in the footsteps of many a Bravo housewife before her with her own brand of alcohol? Unfortunately for the OG of the RHOC, her venture ended in a big law suit. Now the Real Housewives of Orange County star is claiming that part of the story happened in Andy’s beloved clubhouse before an episode of Watch What Happens Live. #ExtortionbyBravo

For quite a while now, Vicki has been embroiled in a suit with her former partner Robert Williamson in vodka regarding the liquor line the two tried to launch a couple years ago. Of course, things became ugly when allegations were lodged against Brooks Ayers that he knocked up his divorce attorney’s paralegal and threatened Robert’s family by hiring a hit man. Wait, what?
According to Radar Online, Vicki has filed an affidavit that asserts that Robert “inexplicably confronted” her with those accusations as well as the claim that her beau “had many sexual diseases.” A recording of Brooks admitting that he “screwed around” on Vicki, saying “I’ve been known to cheat,” was recently obtained by another equally as reputable news source…the National Enquirer. Of course, I do think that last part is
Of course, as stories do in the world of reality stars, things only got more dramatic from there. Vicki’s statement contend that Williamson then threatened her right before the two were to be guests on the July 15, 2013 episode of WWHL when the two were talking in her dressing room.
Vicki claims that Robert forced her to sign documents regarding their business, stating that if she didn’t, “he would falsely tell the press that I had defrauded him in the Vicki’s Vodka business.” She asserts that she only executed the paperwork out of fear that he would humiliate her on live television and that she feared “R. Williamson would create a scene on the live broadcast of the show and slander me to the media, potentially ruining my opportunity to renew my contract with Bravo.”
The RHOC star further alleges that she paid Robert two installments of $50,000.00 after the show, and yet he still filed the federal suit against her two weeks later. Williamson has reportedly requested the case be dismissed.
This whole thing sounds shady, shady, shady! If it’s true, you know that Andy is kicking himself and currently having his people install hidden cameras in all of the dressing rooms so he won’t miss a scoop like this again!
