The lawsuits surrounding the now defunct Vicki’s Vodka have lasted far longer than the company itself! Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers were investors in the company, which Vicki started with co-founder Robert Williamson III, but things went horribly awry. Don’t drink and do business deals, I suppose (and kid!)
The Real Housewives Of Orange County star has been battling the lawsuit for years, with Vicki and Robert going back and forth over Brooks involvement in their partnership. Robert even alleged that Brooks hired a hitman to try and take him out, but the embattled Brooks scored a huge victory when a Nevada Court Circuit judge has dismissed Robert’s suit as without merit.
The OG of the OC has spoken, and she is no fan of Real Housewives of Orange County’s newbie, Meghan Edmonds. In her blog, Vicki Gunvalson defends her decision to stick by fellow housewife Shannon Beador after Meghan excluded Shannon from her charity event. “This week’s episode shows that it is evident Meghan is definitely trying to be relevant amongst these women,” snarks Vicki. “For her to feel compelled to exclude Shannon out of her party I don’t think was right.”
“When I decided not to go to the charity event and instead be with Shannon, it’s because I didn’t want Shannon to feel all alone that night. Knowing that all the girls would be together and Shannon not being invited would have been very hurtful to her. I would have expected one of them to do the same for me,” explains Vicki. Uh, if Vicki is expecting these “girls” to stick by her in times of trouble, she might want to take a life insurance policy out on hell freezing over. She maintains, though, that “True friends are there for you when ‘life happens’, whether it be a sickness, loss of a job, death of a loved one, relationship struggles or anything else. This is when you see the true colors of a friend, it’s how they act when difficult situations occur.”
“This week you don’t see much of me other than packing for my trip to Florida,” says Vicki. “Every year my FMO holds an awards banquet based on the previous year’s production and I was proud to be acknowledged as one of the top producers in the Insurance & Financial Services industry. After my conference was done, I flew Briana and Ryan and their two boys from Oklahoma to Disneyworld and we spent another five days together. I just love being with my grandkids, Briana, and Ryan so there was no place I’d rather be…even Napa with the ladies.”
Vicki Gunvalson is standing by her man and slamming naysayers who accuse Brooks Ayers of faking cancer! Brooks may be broker than a joke, but he certainly isn’t depraved enough to fake terminal illness, people! #NoICantBelieveThisIsAStorylineEither
This season Brooks comes under fire from Vicki’s fellow Housewives – specifically newbie Meghan Edmonds – who accuse him of making the whole thing up! Even Vicki’s daughter Briana even begins to question Brooks’ diagnosis and confides in Tamra Barney that she believes he may not really be sick!
After a fairly short blog last week, the OG of the OC is back with a master’s thesis to give us her take on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, and her rebuttal ofTamra Judge’sblog accusations last week. Vicki Gunvalson begins by addressing Tamra’s claims that Vicki hadn’t reached out to her upon hearing of Brooks Ayers‘ cancer diagnosis. Vicki clarifies, ” I did speak to Tamra after Brooks’ diagnosis. She initially found out from an interview Brooks and I did after he was re-diagnosed with his cancer in October 2014. Tamra and I ended up talking on the phone after that was online, and I told her I was sad and scared and was apprehensive on filming season 10 with Brooks being sick. I told her I ‘didn’t want to be Gretchen’ and was reflecting back when she was filming with her fiancé Jeff who ended up dying while she was on RHOC.”
Vicki also claims, “Tamra was very supportive on the call and said ‘he’ll be fine, you got this and if there was anything we needed to let her know’. So for her to post in her blog that we never spoke is not true.” Also not true is Tamra’s claim that Terry Dubrow never reached out to Brooks. Vicki wonders, “I mean how would Tamra know if Terry and Brooks texted, so I don’t know why she said that.”
In case you were feeling stressed out about the lack of available Real Housewives wines (and other sparkly alcoholic beverages), Heather Dubrow is launching her own champagne, not to be confused with Fabellini. Appropriately this champagne is named after Heather’s 5-year-old daughter Colette, who leads Heather to drink. Heather commissions a giant champagne bottle-shaped cake, that she is flying in its own seat on a private plane to Napa for the launch party of Colette Champagne. All of the ladies are invited. Lifestyles of the rich and guest role on canceled sitcom hopefully famous!
Literally fell asleep – snoooooze, snore, zzzzzzzzzz, yawn at the thought of another Housewives hawking wine storyline.
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.”
As season 10 veteran on the Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson is well versed in the ups and downs of reality television. As a twice-divorced woman who’s had to pay both ex-husbands off post-marriage, she is also not adverse to fiercely protecting her assets when it comes to her new living arrangement with Brooks Ayers – even if it means getting a lawyer involved!
In her Bravo blog, Vicki explains the reasons behind, and terms of, her cohabitation agreement with Brooks. “I have been divorced twice, and both times I had to pay my husband’s off,” she explains, adding, “I never received child support with my first marriage, and with my 2nd marriage I had to pay Donn alimony. This way, I am protected if my relationship doesn’t work out with Brooks. We have a legal binding agreement that my divorce attorney drafted, and Brooks signed without any hesitation. This eliminates any miscommunication in a relationship once you put it all out there about what your expectations are, it’s one less thing to worry about. It’s a pre-nup without the ‘nup’.”
