The Vicki Gunvalson denial tour rages on! In a revealing interview Vicki doesn’t hold back in discussing her complicated relationships with her cast mates, rebounding from Brooks Ayers, and why she’s begging everyone to move on. Oh, she also wants a spinoff with friend/enemy Tamra Judge. Huh?
This season ofReal Housewives Of Orange County has Vicki avoiding drama – or trying to – and focusing on rebuilding. “I’m filling my tank back up!” This means a lot of whooping it up while re-evaluating her friendships.
“If I see conflict I really, kinda, wanna run now, but I’m strong enough to know I’ve gotta defend myself,” Vicki shares. “You’re not gonna see me screaming or going berserk. Hopefully I’m a little bit more tame this year.”
I know we are only a couple episodes into the current season of Real Housewives of Orange County, but I really just don’t know what to make of the new girl Kelly Dodd. It is really clear that she is desperate for attention and is beyond pumped to be in the reality TV spotlight, but I’m still so stuck on what she revealed about her marriage during the last episode.
During that weird kitchen demolition party at Meghan Edmonds’s house, Kelly told the ladies that she and her husband Michael Dodd were at odds for years and actually filed for divorce in the past before they got back together two years later. Well, obviously I’m not the only one who was curious about that story because some super interesting dirt has come to light.
I cannot be the only one who feels like the instant friendship between Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd is less than genuine. Maybe they ended up being really good friends, but it’s pretty obvious that their immediate kinship came from a place of attention-seeking desperation.
We are only two episodes into Season 11 of Real Housewives of Orange County and it’s very clear the the rest of the cast can’t stand Vicki for all of the Brooks Ayers-related bullshit that she put them through last year. Vicki needs friends and Kelly needs to get some camera time if she wants to stick around on the show so it makes total sense for these two to link up. That’s not how Vicki sees it though, or at least that’s not the justification she has for this new relationship.
Heather Dubrow is definitely the most diplomatic cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County. She is the epitome of class and she is one of the few housewives who doesn’t use her spare time to be a shit stirrer. So when Heather is mad at someone, it is always for a good reason – minus that one time in Season 8 when she got mad at her husband Terry Dubrow over some onion rings.
But anyway, Heather is clearly the most reasonable person in the cast, not to mention the nicest, so this means that she really thinks that Vicki Gunvalson screwed up since she refuses to forgive her for her involvement with her ex Brooks Ayers’s cancer scandal. So why can’t we actually have new story lines in season 11? So why can’t Heather move on?
When Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson are on the outs they’re really, really on the outs. With so many years of history behind them, these broads really know how to sling that mud! Vicki is actually so furious over Tamra badmouthing her, she hopes Bravo will take legal action. OK, uhhh… wait – what? Like you lied about cancer on TV, and like huh? I mean … anyway, I’ll just let you lovely people read-on!
Tamra has decided she’s had enough of Vicki for the rest of the season her life, and has been accusing her of betrayal – again. Tamra also wants Vicki fired from Real Housewives Of Orange County(which is a losing battle for sure).Since it’s a very thin line between love and hate (especially if you’re a Housewife!), Vicki and Tamra have been warring back and forth on twitter, and in the press, about who is worse. Hmmmm… despite the whole Brooks Ayers debacle I still say it’s a toss-up!
It is so obvious that Kelly just wants to stir shit up and get attention by being nice to Vicki. She can’t claim to not know her past situation while at the same time citing that she has compassion for her. Pick a stance, girl. Now she is weirdly against Shannon Beador after she is the one who gave pretty much everyone a terrible first impression with her attention-seeking antics. Insulting people’s parenting and putting your boobs in their faces is not the best way to make friends – or to be a well-liked reality TV star.
Heather promised that while the next few episodes are easing us in by introducing Kelly, and reconnecting the women, things really take off in a few episodes. “This was a building episode,” she says. “A lot of information was sort of subtly given, so I hope people were really paying attention.”
