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.
Sure, Heather serves as the prim and proper police a lot of the time, but have you seen her friends? They could use a little reminder now and then (I’m looking at you, Tamra Judge!). Plus, her closet is amazing and her husband is one of the nicest and most charming men with whom I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking, no, I’m never NOT going to bring up this interview as it’s one of my most favorite memories in my time writing for this site. 🙂
I am always thrown when Real Housewives cast members bitch about being associated with each other and going to group events. If you don’t want to be a part of the friend group, you don’t have to: just quit the show. That’s why I think it’s so weird that Meghan Edmonds and Shannon Beador do whatever they can to avoid Vicki Gunvalson. And this is obviously why they both avoided the trip that Tamra Judge planned in Glamis.
Meghan shares, “I honestly can’t believe how horrific the accident was. The most stunning part to me was the silence afterwards. Silence is never a good sign and it was so hard to watch something like that, especially knowing that my friends were involved.”
