Vicki Gunvalson


Meghan King Edmonds and her baby bump were in the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse tonight after the new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Meghan shared her thoughts on baby names, Vicki Gunvalson’s continuing drama, Kelly Dodd refusing her advice and more.

Andy replays the clip from tonight’s episode where Meghan trying to warn Kelly about Vicki.  Meghan says “It was a little bit disappointing because I was actually trying to give Kelly some heartfelt advice so that she could really fit in with the whole group and that was her reaction. She minimized my advice and I was a little disappointed.”


During the last season of Real Housewives of Orange County, I did not know how to react when Meghan Edmonds started in on the “Brooks Ayers doesn’t have cancer” accusations. It was her first season on the show and I didn’t “know” her well enough yet to feel like she had credibility. And aside from that, I could not help wondering who in their right mind would actually fake cancer. Well, we all know how that whole thing turned out so I’m not going to rehash that part.

Nevertheless, the current RHOC season is all about rehashing last year with everyone hating on Vicki Gunvalson for playing up the persona of a victim and for refusing to apologize for her part in all of the craziness. Even after the season has finished filming (minus the reunion), Meghan is still not over the Brooks drama and she is teasing a little bit about to expect in upcoming episodes.


Vicki Gunvalson wants to see a medium

Vicki Gunvalson wants it known that she SO did not abandon Briana by heading to work mere moments after she was released from the hospital, and an outraged Vicki blames shady editing!

Briana has been battling serious and undiagnosable health issues for months. During this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County it appeared as if Vicki jetted off for Work! Work! Work!, abounding Briana alone with two small kids. 


Vicki Gunvalson & Daughter Briana

Vicki Gunvalson wants revenge against the doctor in Oklahoma who treated Briana Culberson! Vicki blames the doctor for exponentially worsening Briana’s health after she contracted an infection in the hospital – and Briana still hasn’t fully recovered! 

Briana has been struggling with undiagnosed health issues for months, says Vicki, which first started after a routine surgery, and necessitated that Briana move back to Orange County. “They were going to kill my daughter, basically,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County accuses. “So, I got her out of there.” 


Heather Dubrow on WWHL

Yesterday on Heather Dubrow‘s podcast, she recapped the latest episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County, along with providing some behind-the-scenes glimpses of things viewers didn’t see. 

Heather begins by defending how Vicki Gunvalson is dealing with Briana’s health – like Vicki going to work after Briana was in the hospital. “It’s not like Briana was in the hospital one day and now she’s leaving her,” Heather explains. “This has been an ongoing thing, so which day does she choose?”


Shannon and Tamra

Unless there is some sort of drastic turnaround, then it is pretty clear to me that Shannon Beador is done with Vicki Gunvalson. She avoids Vicki every time she shows up at events and Vicki is a narcissist who refuses to apologize and loves defecting on others… So I don’t see anything changing between.

Not only that, but I’m sure that Shannon can’t stand how Vicki is always the topic of conversation. Talking about the same thing all the time has to be pretty tiresome. And now Shannon has to relive these Vicki-centered conversations when each Real Housewives of Orange County episode airs.



I still have no idea what to make of Kelly Dodd. I know that this season of Real Housewives of Orange County only just started, but I really don’t get her. I can’t tell if she’s just trying to be friends with Vicki Gunvalson for attention or if she just feels sorry for the underdog.

To be honest, it seems like she just knows that hanging with Vicki is going to maximize her camera time, but that’s just my first impression of her. Hopefully, she gets a little bit better, stops cracking such lame jokes, and trying to be the MVP (and sole member) of Team Vicki.


Vicki apologizes to Heather

I don’t understand anything that Vicki Gunvalson does on Real Housewives of Orange County. She is always crying to get sympathy from the viewers because no one in the cast wants to be friends with her, yet she refuses to apologize for anything that she does – ever.

No one is here for that, Vicki – especially Heather Dubrow. She has always been a no nonsense chick, but she is really laying down the law when it comes to how she will treat Vicki after all of the Brooks Ayers-related craziness. In the most recent episode Heather declared that she is going to regard Vicki as an “acquaintance” instead of a friend from now on.
