And for Vicki’s troubles she may be getting $132,000 out of the deal – a settlement that was initially awarded to Brooks! That may be the only good thing that ever came out of dating Brooks.
Vicki’s Vodka was started as a partnership, but quickly dissolved into a never-ending game of who’s suing whom between Vicki, Robert, and Brooks. Was there ever any actual vodka? One such claim, filed by Robert, accused Brooks of hiring a hit man to whack him. Brooks managed to score a minor victory when a Nevada judge determined there was no evidence, and dismissed Robert’s case.
Heather shared an update on the situation on her podcast today and even shares that Jennifer Lindsay Bell (who is reportedly hiding out in London) emailed them recently to let them know they RUINED HER CHRISTMAS by putting her information out there on the internet! Can you say balls of steel?
Shannon had some fun making a custom pair of DSW Converse sneakers with a wave print for husband David. She revealed that he has taken up surfing as a new hobby. Scheana Marie went with a feather design for her Converse. Scheana also stopped by the Marc Jacobs Beauty suite for some make-up touch ups. See the pics of the ladies below.
Alexis gushed over her dream car gift, “Eeeeeeeeeeee! Really?? Happy birthday to me! I woke up to this #surprise in my driveway this morning! I can’t even believe it!!!! #besthubbyever #mydreamcar #bestbirthdaygiftever #birthdaymonth #luckygirl Thank you O’Gara Coach La Jolla for making my #dreamcometrue.”
Jeff Lewis and Vicki Gunvalson both know a little bit about Flipping Out! They’ve also both been on reality TV since Bravo was a channel people were still trying to find in their expanded cable package. So, they know a thing or two about how this game works, and how to work it when the chips are down. This begs the question: Are Andy Cohen’s OG’s joining forces now that Vicki’s future on the Real Housewives of Orange County has come under scrutiny?
RHOC served up an exhausting season of watching Vicki defend her lying sack o’ shizz boyfriend Brooks Ayers over his claims of “fighting cancer” – followed by Vicki claiming she was “duped! duped, I say!” when the truth (at least about Brooks faking his medical documents) came to light. As a result, Vicki has some serious ground to make up with viewers who claim she is also a liar. But can Vicki’s besmirched reputation ever be restored to its former bed-wetting glory?
Just in case you need a reminder that Brooks Ayers is no stranger to scandal, he was once involved in helping Vicki Gunvalson launch a vodka line. Vicki’s Vodka went defunct after a slew of lawsuits and crazy allegations between Brooks and Vicki’s former partner Robert Williamson III. One such allegation being that Robert accusing Brooks of hiring a hitman to off him! Yes – that happened.
After splitting with Slade, returning that Mercedes, and trying her luck at a spinoff called Date My Ex: Jo & Slade, plus a disastrous attempt at launching a music career (she released the album Unscripted in 2008), Jo left reality TV and the public eye behind. Instead Jo focused on building a successful career in marketing and ad sales.
In the latest episode of her podcast, Heather Dubrow’s World, Heather reveals the details of how the scam was perpetrated, shared the identities of those involved and questioned bounty hunger Zeke Unger on how it’s possible to recoup losses after the scammers flee! Fascinating stuff – and I truly hope we’ll see more of it on Real Housewives Of Orange County this season.
First, Heather releases the identity of the main perpetrator, Jennifer Lindsay Bell. Heather and Terry are offering a $25,000 reward for any information as they believe she has fled the country to evade authorities.
