Vicki Gunvalson is the self-appointed OG of the OC. The Real Housewives of Orange County star is the longest standing cast member of the longest running Housewife show. And she doesn’t let us forget it! Sometimes it can be hard to find things to admire about Vicki-she can be loud, demanding, needy and frequently whoops it up a little too much. Plus, she stood by questionable boyfriend Brooks Ayers long after it became clear he was not the Prince Charming she claimed he was.
On the flip side, there are some things admirable about Vicki. She seems to have raised good children. And Vicki began an Orange County insurance business which she turned into a big success. Now, however, a long-time client of her beloved company is calling her ethics and integrity into question.
Some Real Housewives earn their pay more than others, in my opinion. There are ladies who deserve it for being clever and funny, like Shannon Beador. Others earn their dollars by living a fabulous life of extravagance, like former OC Housewife Heather Dubrow. But the biggest bang for the buck amongst Housewives comes from their ability to stir up drama. And few Housewives from any franchise have done it better (or worse!) than Tamra Judge of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Now going into her twelfth season as a Housewife, viewers have seen it all with Tamra. An ugly divorce and custody battle. Remarriage. Financial problems. Bitter feuds with the likes of Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino. Finding Jesus. Multiple cosmetic procedures. And throwing wine in Jeana Keough’s face. You get the picture! Now, Tamra has hinted that it might be time to turn in her orange and become a regular citizen again.
Not only that, but RHOC alum Meghan Edmonds is making an appearance. All of the ladies gathered to celebrate Shannon Beador’sbirthday. And, of course, they all posted photos. Hopefully, some drama went down in between the happy pictures that they shared.
Love her or hate her, she will always be the obsessed detective who uncovered one of the OC’s most controversial scandals. Is Meghan now regretting her decision to leave the spotlight? Does she plan on returning to discover more subterfuge and trickery?
Things were not looking good for Vicki’s chances of returning following the Season 13 reunion. Vicki accused Kelly of using cocaine, and cougar Kelly was NOT having it. It seemed as if Kelly would not return to the series if Vicki was still on board. Kelly has been an explosive lightning rod for Orange County. Losing her could be detrimental. On the other hand, Vicki has always given the show SO MUCH too. Filming the for the next season has been underway for a bit now, but is Vicki shooting with the other ladies?
During a tequila-soaked girls’ trip to Cabo, Danielle fought with Margaret. She even stated that Margaret isn’t in touch with her children and not allowed to see her grandchildren because she is an awful person. Remember how talking about kids isn’t allowed on RHONJ? Margaret tossed a glass of wine at Danielle, which resulted in a meltdown of epic proportions, and even more broken wine glasses. (I see you, Jennifer Aydin!) Even more surprising than this rumble in Cabo? Teresa backing Danielle…again.
