Brooks Ayers

Real Housewives Of Orange County RHOC Emily Kelly Dodd

If you crammed any more drama, hijinks, meltdowns, and hysterias (and medical issues!) into this episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County I think it would explode a la Kelly Dodd after 2 cocktails and exposure to a snarky meme. Things would just come flying out, every which way, and the only thing that would be left standing amid the rubble would be Tamra Judge and the two giant inflatable jugs she has strapped to her chest as a bullet-proof vest/getaway life raft.

I literally can’t even begin to dissect all the switching animosities and loyalties, but all I have to say is Tamra is masterful at manipulating these women in a tizzy of stupidity. And Kyle Richards thinks Lisa Vanderpump plays chess…  

Vicki & Brooks - RHOC season 10

Poor Vicki Gunvalson, can’t we she get a break? After receiving a humiliating demotion on Real Housewives of Orange County, other troubles continue to plague Vicki. The serial liar black cloud known as Brooks Ayers just won’t go away. Viewers took a long and painful journey while Vicki was involved with Brooks. The man was responsible for quite possibly the most devious scandal in Housewives history, and Vicki stood by his side every step of the way.

During Victim and Brooks’ courtship, Vicki managed to lose fans, friends, and her dignity. Her blind devotion to someone lying about having cancer resulted in some severe consequences. Vicki didn’t just invite Brooks into her love tank, she invited him to do business with her. Vicki’s Vodka was a total failure business venture created in the hopes of fattening their wallets and keeping Brooks in new dentures. It didn’t exactly turn out that way. Even though the couple is done, in March of this year, Vicki sued Brooks for breach of written and verbal agreements, as well as fraud. But Brooks has another plan and it doesn’t include writing Vick a check. Thus the saga continues in the agonizing neverending tale of Vicki and Brooks.

Vicki Gunvalson Says Meghan Edmonds Is “So Awful” & She Knew Meghan & Jim Edmonds Would Divorce

Vicki Gunvalson, leech friend of Real Housewives of Orange County, is spewing her opinion all over the place.  Someone needs to take this platform away from this woman.

You would think Vicki would learn from her past. The things that come out of her mouth can be extremely hurtful.  And yet, she’s the first to well up when someone says something mean about her.

Vicki Gunvalson Says Kelly Dodd Got Engaged For A Storyline

Vicki Gunvalson & Kelly Dodd are probably never going to be friends again. There is too much bad blood between them. From cocaine accusations to pig insults, their friendship is nonexistent. Despite their fallout, both remain central figures on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki might not be a full-time cast member anymore, but she’s very much a part of the show.

In addition to being Housewives, the two women have another thing in common. Both have wedding bells in their future! Vicki has been engaged to Steve Lodge for a while. However, Kelly’s engagement is a little more recent. PLEASE HAVE THE WEDDING ON THE SAME DAY. Considering how much these women loathe one another, surely Vicki had something to say about it. OH YES. She definitely did. 

Shannon Beador and Braunwyn Windham-Burke Claim Kelly Dodd Apology Was Phony

Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson used to be friends. At least, friends of the Housewife variety. The Real Housewives of Orange County stars were at odds last season over Vicki introducing her ex Michael Dodd to a new woman after their split. Even worse, they had an ugly dispute at the Season 13 reunion when Vicki insinuated that Kelly was a cocaine user. Funny how that could make someone angry!

Since then, the two have been feuding, often trading barbs on social media. During the cast trip to Arizona, Vicki repeated a story she had allegedly heard about Kelly being banned from her daughter’s school. Kelly, of course, called Vicki out for spreading ugly rumors. Astonishingly, the two apologized to each other at dinner on the final night of the trip. Were the two really ready to repair their broken friendship? Two other RHOC stars think something was amiss with the apology-fest at the Miraval retreat.

Gretchen Rossi Says She Was “Really Surprised” By Vicki Gunvalson’s Demotion On Real Housewives Of Orange County

The entire Bravosphere was shocked by Vicki Gunvalson‘s demotion to Friend of the Housewives for Season 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County — former frenemy Gretchen Rossi included.

In a new interview, the former RHOC star opened up about her reaction to the OC of the OG getting her orange snatched.

Did Vicki betray Kelly?

What happens when you are a highly visible celebrity, suffering the humiliation of a demotion? Let’s ask Vicki Gunvalson! The veteran star of Real Housewives of Orange County started Season 14 on a different note. Apparently that note said “have a seat” because the orange was snatched out of her hands.

Just like the little engine that could, Vicki is huffing and puffing up a steep hill. She is desperately trying to prove she is worthy of regaining full time status. That isn’t great news for Kelly Dodd, who is now the target of Vicki’s impetuous jabs. Last year Vicki accused Kelly of being a coke head. This year Vicki has definitely not started a rumor that Kelly enjoys participating in risque acts of a sexual nature. But last time I checked, unless a gerbil or goat is involved, having sex is not a crime. Now Vicki attacks Kelly’s relationship with men, which might earn her a doctorate in Hypocritical Science.

The Mid-Season Trailer For Real Housewives Of Orange County Has Everything We Need

Hold on to your Sky tops everyone, because Real Housewives of Orange County is going to get even better! A lot of fans have been sick of RHOC for seasons. I checked out after Season 10 with Brooks Ayers’ cancer-scam. That was a serious low-point for Vicki Gunvalson and the series in general. That awful storyline showed how far some people were willing go for camera time, and how manufactured the series had become. We’re lucky that ship has sailed!

Season 14 is already revitalizing RHOC. The drama is real and personal. Kelly Dodd is carrying the season on her shoulders. Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson are actually keeping up too. At moments the show is dark, but there have been other moments that bring some light and love to the O.C. People’s hesitation to watch is understandable. Last week, Shannon Storms Beador and Tamra Judge milked the drama by rushing to the hospital after Kelly Dodd playfully gonged Shannon on the head. Aside from that ridiculousness, the mid-season trailer is here and it looks like things are ready to take off!
