On last night’s season 9 finale of Flipping Out, it was the end of one era and the beginning of another. As Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward say goodbye to Zoila Chavez living with them, they make room for the new life who will be joining them all too soon. When Jeff and Gage see their daughter move on an ultrasound, that new era becomes more of a reality than ever.
Despite these emotional transitions, Jeff and the gang must still keep up their hustle. So they take a job with Real Housewives of Orange County star (and close friend of Jeff’s) Shannon Beador to decorate her new home. And her budget is HUGE!
Oh how the tide has changed. Vicki Gunvalson started out this season as public enemy number one on Real Housewives of Orange County. Now that Vicki got in that scary dune buggy accident, she actually has a valid reason to play the victim. Not only that, but it can also be argued that she has a legitimate reason to come after Shannon Beador now after her less than caring reaction to Vicki’s hospitalization.
Once you burn a bridge with Shannon Beador… no amount of colonics, cupping, or acupuncture will rebuild it. Such is the island of Shannon‘s heart that Vicki Gunvalson finds herself stranded on! Even if Vicki finds herself in the hospital after a ATV accident!
Vicki says she’s doing fine now, but still has some residual damage in her neck and back. She says she’ll probably always have compressed discs now. But she’s remaining positive, “it could’ve been worse.”
Last week, the ladies were in a frightening accident after Tamra Judge flipped their ATV in the Glamis Dunes. Vicki was airlifted to the hospital but poor lowly Tamra only got whisked away by ambulance.
Heather Dubrow and Kelly Dodd, the luckiest stars in the Bravo galaxy, celebrate their survival with some judgey phone calls in between many glasses of champs (and one PTSD-flavored beer). First, Heather called Meghan to let her know Vicki was at the Palm Springs hospital, so could Meghan please just abandon waiting for Shannon Beador‘s arrival at La Quinta to rush over and check on Vicki.
Was Tamra surprised when she saw the golfing scene with Jim, Shannon, Meghan and David? “Watching it, I can understand Shannon. Shannon and Vicki are not in a good place, they’re not speaking, there’s a lot of bad blood there. But Meghan just went to Vicki’s birthday in Palm Desert. You know, it’s a 30 minute drive. She could’ve just went or called and said ‘do you have any clothes, do you need a ride, do you need anything?’ So, I was a little bit shocked.”
