Never one to miss a great PR moment, Vicki accepted this gracious honor with humility. Ready to use her celebrity status for good, Gunvalson enthusiastically toured the town with Ayers – I thought these two were dunzo?? — by her side.
While accepting the key, Vicki said that she “was looking forward to visiting again very soon.” We all know that Vicki is not just a Housewife. She is a successful insurance agent, author and grandma, and apparently that is what you need to inspire a city. Stating their appreciation for her “efforts to promote the city of Tupelo”, Mayor Jason Shelton gushed as Gunvalson smiled for the camera.
OK, so maybe I have not been paying attention, but the only time I have heard Vicki gush about “the South” was two season ago on the Real Housewives of Orange County when she had all of the housewives over for a crawfish boil that did not go over well.
I am thinking Brooks had something to do with this. You know that guy loves any opportunity to show off his
ATM machine girlfriend, Vicki. Oh, well, congrats Vicki!
TELL US! WERE YOU SURPRISED THAT VICKI WAS HONORED IN BROOKS’ HOMETOWN?
