For two seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County, Kelly Dodd was the only Housewife who was loyal to Vicki Gunvalson. After Vicki hugged it out with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador during the last reunion, she forgot about her friendship with Kelly. Or at least that’s how it comes across.
Vicki introduced Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Dodd to one of her friends, went on double dates with them, and she purposely hid it from Kelly. Of course, Kelly is upset with her. Vicki still doesn’t get why, but pretty much everyone is #TeamKelly on this one- even Tamra.
Tamra declared, “Vicki, you can’t go on double dates with Kelly’s ex husband and NOT tell her…NO, NO, NO!” She explained the reasoning in the same way that Kelly did on the show: “It’s not about Kelly NOT wanting Michael to date or if she left Michael or if Kelly is still in love with Michael. Kelly said herself that she wants Michael to find a girlfriend. It’s about Vicki NOT telling Kelly that she introduced Michael to her friend then going on double dates with them.” How is Vicki so confused about this?

Tamra emphasized, “Her loyalty is to Kelly not Michael. She should have told her. ” 100%.
The other Vicki-focused plotline of that last episode was Tamra and Shannon’s theory that Vicki’s man Steve Lodge was not filling her love tank. Months after filming those scenes, Tamra changed her mind. She wrote, “Let’s get one thing straight: I really like Steve and think he is great for Vicki. Since this episode, I have spent more time with them, and you can see Vicki loves him. I’m hoping and praying that this is her forever!”
She explained her thoughts during filming: “At the time I just didn’t see that passion that comes with a new relationship. Seemed more like she’s really trying to change who she is to make this relationship work. Vicki has a long history of whooping it up in Mexico, and she was not being herself. Usually, she’s driving the fun bus.” This was not the Vicki “let’s whoop it up” Gunvalson that the viewers are used to seeing in Mexico. We miss that Vicki.
