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.
You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?
While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.
Vicki Gunvalson is pretty well known for being possibly the worst partner to a husband in Housewives history. When the name Donn Gunvalson is dropped, you can practically hear the angels singing. He’s regarded as one of the most liked house-husbands in history. That is, if you do know your Housewives history. Perhaps what made him even more revered is the fact that he was followed by Brooks Ayers. The most disgusting vile cancer-scamming monster of all time.
It struck fans that Vicki could somehow leave her dedicated husband of 20 years, yet defend an absolute garbage person to the hilt. I guess there was that one time Donn insulted Vick at dinner, but after 20-years with the ghoul, I think he deserves a pass.
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.
There is major trouble afoot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: What Ever Happened To Erika Jayne? Lots of legal issues are brewing and possible criminal charges are looming. Also, the show is in production which means viewers will get a glimpse of what everyone is talking about, even though they won’t be talking about it. But that’s okay because we are going to MENTION IT ALL. Erika Jayne and estranged husband Tom Girardi might have knocked Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers off the Worst Scammers of All Time pedestal.
Vicki and Brooks held that title for years, because sympathy casseroles were a thing. But Tom and Erika’s recent accusations of embezzlement and fraud blow them out of the water. So what happens when you are accused of stealing money from plane crash and burn victims? When your assets are frozen amid questionable divorce filings and you are 30 seconds away from forced bankruptcy? Honey, you start selling your shit. And that’s exactly what Erika is doing. Anyone need a gently used Gucci tracksuit with faint notes of Jean Nate and desperation?
Dealing with Vicki Gunvalson is an exercise in futility. Vicki also has issues with jealousy. Thankfully viewers will be free from Vicki’s relentless woo-hoo screaming and desperate attempts to make Steve Lodge appear interested in their relationship. Bravo gave us the gift that will keep on giving, no more Vicki or Tamra Judge on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Accepting her fate with a positive attitude isn’t Vicki’s thing. Thankfully, her partner in crime, Tamra, was shown the door as well. But one piece of the puzzle was missing. Shannon Beador, third member of the OCs answer to Hells Angels, Tres Amigas, kept her orange. While doing press for the show, Shannon was asked about her former friend. Vicki’s Google Alerts must be on because now she responds to Shannon’s comments, and seemingly punishes her for not being unemployed.
I have to admit, in these uncertain housewife times, I really miss the reliability of Meghan Edmonds. While some might disagree, I stand by my statement. Meghan always brought it when she was on Real Housewives of Orange County. And we are indebted to her forever for her hard work uncovering Brooks Ayers’ cancer scam.
But since leaving RHOC, Meghan’s life has unraveled. Her messy divorce from
Jimmy Dad Jeans Jim Edmonds has been one for the ages. So many allegations have come out that it’s really hard to even keep up with. And now there’s more.
I’m just going to say it – I miss Meghan Edmonds on Real Housewives of Orange County. I know she was a polarizing housewife for fans, but I always enjoyed her. Let us never forget that she was instrumental in exposing super-villain Brooks Ayers’ alleged cancer scam. And she notoriously got under Shannon Beador’s very thin skin over a charity event.
But it’s an understatement to say that times have changed. After a contentious split from husband Jim Edmonds, Meghan has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Looks like the marriage blew up after Jim was caught engaging in inappropriate text messages with another woman. From there, it spiraled with allegations that Jim cheated with the nanny. Then he called the cops on Meghan one night. He promptly got coronavirus and started dating a new woman, who is all over his social media. Oh, and did I mention he and Meghan supposedly had a threesome with this woman? Considering he’s fine now, he’s a hard one to feel sympathy for. Sorry, not sorry!
