Among tonight’s topics, Vicki talked about life since her mom passed away and addressed her criticism of Meghan King Edmonds, and Jeff shared his thoughts on being fired from Living Spaces and talked about his friendship with Shannon Beador.
When asked if she watched the episode in which she learned her mom passed away, Vicki shared, “Yes, I did. I blacked out there. It was part of my life, and I kind of felt like I’d see her come back through that episode, but I didn’t. It has been a really big void for our family. Briana was very close to my mom. It has just been really hard on all of us. It has been really, really hard… harder than I would have ever imagined it to be.”
A lot of time was spent on Vicki and Tamra, and the poll was, Vicki and Tamra: forever friends or never again?
When asked if she was bothered when Tamra said Jeana Keough was a good friend to her this year, Vicki said, “It didn’t bother me. Jeana’s definitely always in people’s business, so it was a normal thing for her to be in her business.” Andy called attention to the shade. “It is what it is,” she added. “Jeana was very helpful to Tamra and I was not.”
Brooks shared, “It’s been a challenging couple of months for Vicki and myself for sure, but we’re good. One of the words I use to describe Vicki is ‘intense.’ She’s intense in every aspect of her life in whatever she’s doing. Having fun, whooping it up, or working, in a relationship, or whatever, she’s intense — and that’s a good thing.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County star had planned to spend time with Briana this summer as Briana prepared for her the birth of her second son, but baby had other plans! Vicki shared over the weekend that the baby was going to be early, so she had to rush off to be with her family. She wrote on Friday, “Just got to LAX to catch a 6am flight to OKC. Our new baby decided to come a early. Can’t get there quick enough! Pray for healthy baby and momma. 4thofJulybaby.”
Vicki Gunvalson has been making decisions with her empty love tank. And unfortunately her mid-life crisis love tank is leading her to Brooks Ayers!
Despite everyone in her life seriously questioning her decisions in the romance department leading to family and friends ostracizing her and beau Brooks (is he not sending them enough affirming Hallmark cards?) the Real Housewives of Orange County star insists she has no regrets when it comes to the choices she's made!
"I can't tell you how difficult this has been having my daughter and myself continue to not see eye-to-eye on some very important issues," Vickiadmits in her Bravo blog.
Vicki announced that daughter Briana Culberson and her husband Ryan are expecting baby number two – and it's another boy! "So excited! Just found out baby #2 is a BOY!#troybigbrother, #bestfriends, #footballplayers," Vicki wrote on Instagram.
Despite the revelations that aired in the RHOC Secrets Revealed episode (namely that toothless Greek god is real!) Vicki said her summer was great and that she returned to Greece! She did, huh? Not to shell out for more dental procedures but on an insurance trip with Briana Culberson and her grandson Troy.
Poor Lydia McLaughlin was emotionally exhausted after taping her first Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. The new (and hopefully returning!) cast member took to her blog this week to express her frustration over the way things went down on last night's third and final installment.
Lydia starts off sharing that she was disappointed in the way Briana Culberson handled the topic of Ryan'streatment of her mom, Judy Stirling. As we all saw, Briana suddenly didn't want to discuss altercation (hello! that is what a reunion episode is!) and tried to shut down any talk of it because Ryan wasn't there. She feebly attempted to excuse his behavior and Lydia is aggravated, to say the least. "What happened between my mother and Ryan was unfortunate. However, I feel Vicki, Ryan, and Briana are trying to steer away from the facts. Ryan shouldn't have yelled at my mother. End of story. He should apologize for his actions. She wasn't drinking red wine, but if she had been, don't you think he would have mentioned that while he was verbally assaulting her!?"
