This season of Real Housewives of Orange County isn’t completely Vicki Gunvalson– free. She is back on tonight’s new episode, once again repeating things that she has “heard” about other people, while refusing to take any responsibility for saying.
It’s clear watching this season, that Vicki’s demotion was not the last-minute surprise to the cast that it was to a lot of the viewers. She has been absent from cast gatherings and even cast gatherings. But, tonight, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador try their best to bring Vicki back into the fold.
Tamra and Shannon even try to “coach” Vicki on how to interact with Kelly Dodd. They tell her “not to react,” but we all know that is the exact opposite of Vicki’s normal behavior. Vicki also thinks she’s insanely clever for referring to Braunwyn Windham-Burke as “Boringwyn.”
Shannon wants Vicki and Kelly to attend a trip to Arizona, as if they both aren’t going to be there anyway. Kelly is a full-time cast member and Vicki (desperately) wants to be. Of course, they’re both going on this televised trip. Vicki wants Shannon and Tamra to defend her against Kelly, because you know, Vicki has never ever done anything to Kelly. Cue my eye roll. Does she just not have any awareness at this point?

Vicki isn’t the only one Kelly has issues with. She hasn’t spoken to her mother and one of her brothers in two years. Remember them? They lived with Kelly during her first season on the show. Then, she felt like they overstayed their welcome and they moved back to Arizona- which is “coincidentally” the same location of the cast trip.
Emily Simpson is threatened by Gina Kirschenheiter’s newfound friendship with Shannon. Gina is annoyed that Emily keeps pushing her to go to Las Vegas, which is the last place a public figure with a recent DUI and custody issues should be.
