Take a deep, cleansing breath because we have an update on Vicki Gunvalson! For the most part, Vicki can be found lamenting about her glory days on Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki is still in recovery due to the enormous chip on her shoulder that manifested as a result of getting pink slipped. But Vicki has other things going for her, healthy grandkids, her own business, and fiancé Steve
Instead of focusing on what she does have, Vicki clings to what she lost. She isn’t fond of the RHOC cast that carried on in her absence and she makes no bones about sharing her dismay. She seems particularly
jealous wary of Braunwyn Windham-Burke, despite the fact that Braunwyn isn’t checking for Vicki (to be fair, no one checks for Vicki). Recently, Vickster revealed she didn’t like Braunwyn from the jump, which basically makes Braunwyn like everyone else Vicki has ever met.
We are living in a world without Real Housewives of Orange County alum Vicki Gunvalson on our televisions. Gone are the days of peeing on someone’s bed. Screaming about threesomes in snow-covered mountains are mere memories. And waxing poetic about the necessity of properly fueled love tanks is in the past. Pause for brief wave of nausea… Yes, Vicki is gone, but she certainly isn’t forgotten – because she won’t let us forget her.
Last time Vicki was featured on RHOC, she had been demoted to a “friend of” the cast. Though to be fair, Vicki really isn’t much of a friend to anyone. Rumors buzzed there was an #ultimatumbybravo implying Vickster had to get engaged to avoid being tossed to the cornfield a la Peggy Sulahain. In 2019 Steve Lodge, Vicki’s paramour, bit the bullet and asked for Vicki’s hand in marriage after 3 years of dating. Here we are, in 2021, and Vicki is still not Mrs.
Chavez Lodge. People have speculated Steve packed his bags and escaped left Vicki, but she says it’s not true. Recently Vicki’s PR the streets were whispering Vicki got herself a younger man. Now Vicki does what she does best, denies it.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has been watching the show she is no longer on, and has some opinions. Let’s be clear, one of the ladies could have landed on the moon or cured leprosy and Vicki would still be out here trashing the season in some capacity. Bless her heart, all she can do is comment since she was #firedbybravo.
Vicki was never particularly fond of Braunwyn Windham-Burke, which is fair. But Vicki’s history with cancer scamming leaves her little leeway to pass judgement on others. Are any of these ladies really in the position to call someone out? So let the hypocrisy parade begin! Recently, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas decided to examine Braunwyn and her unconventional marriage on social media. Naturally Vicki saw this as a moment to be relevant and decided to shoot her shot.
Last night was part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Shannon Beador found herself behaving like a real-live normal woman for a change.
Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with Vicki Gunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!
Left to her own devices without editing or intervention Vicki Gunvalson will always shoot herself in the foot, then still try to put on heels and hobble away. Last night’s segment of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was the perfect example of Vicki at her most Vicki-ness. Reunion part 1 was also way better than anything we’d seen all season.
The most important part of any reunion is to dissect the outfits. First of all, Shannon Beador looks great! I don’t know if it’s the glowy spray tan indicating a break from Dr. Moon‘s holistic practices of wiping Shannon’s entire body in tan resistant mineral powders to ward of surface level UV free radicals, or the 30lb weight loss, or finally shedding her toxic friendship with Tamra Judge, but Shannon looks better than we’ve seen her in years. THIS is the divorced Shannon we were craving all season!
Lydia McLaughlin came boomeranging back into The Real Housewives Of Orange County’s desert of lies, ready to strike! Lunching with Vicki Gunvalson, calling out Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge on their hypocrisy, and throwing glitter on everyone in her wake, Lydia is kind of like a superhero villain – on helium.
Tamra claims she thought Lydia and Shannon would get along great, though. That is, before Lydia mentioned Shannon had some similarities in the pettiness department with Vicki. Before she breaks down the drama that happened at her granddaughter, Ava’s, first birthday party, Tamra previews that “I officially meet Peggy [Sulahain] next Monday. You DO NOT want to miss it!”
Whether or not Vicki Gunvalson knew Brooks Ayers was allegedly lying about having cancer continues to be a storyline looooong after Real Housewives Of Orange County wrapped. On WWHL, Debra Messing accused Vicki of being aware of Brooks’ lies. “She totally knew. Vicki knew. Ugh. She got me really, really mad,” the actress said.
Predictably Vicki was not happy and got on twitter to defend herself. She also found an unlikely ally in Lisa Vanderpump, who took up Vicki’s case against Debra by calling her out!

This is the LAST Brooks/Vicki/Cancer post today. Pinky Swear. Vicki Gunvalson sat down with Extra’s Mario Lopez to share her side of the story now that Brooks Ayers has confessed that he doctored up fake chemo bills and City of Hope denied his being a patient of theirs. The Real Housewives of Orange County star confesses that she hates Brooks and she still swears she was at City of Hope with him and had no idea he was being dishonest.
Vicki starts off, “I’m completely shocked. I’ve seen the bills, I went to City Of Hope. He was there all morning so how do you think anything other than ‘he’s getting chemo’, you go to City Of Hope because you have cancer, not because you have nothing else to do during the day.”
