Love her or hate her, Vicki Gunvalson is the “OG of the OC” for a reason. This woman always as an interesting story line on Real Housewives of Orange County. During the last episode, she had two. She is and has always pulled her weight on this show.
Yes, she’s been extremely polarizing, but overall she’s given the longtime viewers so much enjoyment. She still has no idea why she offended Kelly Dodd so much even though she set up Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd with one of her close friends, went on several double dates with them, and purposely kept it a secret from Kelly.
For two seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County, Kelly Dodd was the only Housewife who was loyal to Vicki Gunvalson. After Vicki hugged it out with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador during the last reunion, she forgot about her friendship with Kelly. Or at least that’s how it comes across.
Vicki introduced Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Dodd to one of her friends, went on double dates with them, and she purposely hid it from Kelly. Of course, Kelly is upset with her. Vicki still doesn’t get why, but pretty much everyone is #TeamKelly on this one- even Tamra.
The beauty of being on a reality TV show is the ability to get an outside perspective on your own life when you watch the episodes back. Or at least it is in theory. There are some reality TV stars who do not learn a thing from watching themselves back on TV. One of those people is Vicki Gunvalson, who is in some hot water with Kelly Dodd.
Vicki Gunvalson and her boyfriend Steve Lodge introduced Kelly’s (very recent) ex-husband Michael Dodd to one of their friends and went on several double dates with them- without ever telling Kelly. Kelly had to find out from a third party. Pretty much every viewer is on Kelly’s side, yet Vicki still has zero understanding that it was hurtful to keep those double dates a secret.
After a somewhat boring Season 13 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, we can all thank Vicki Gunvalson for providing us with some drama during the second episode. Almost every plot line came back to Vicki. That’s what makes her the “OG of the OC.”
She interrupted Tamra Judge’s lunch with Eddie Judge to beg Eddie for forgiveness after spreading rumors about his sexuality. Kelly Dodd flipped out when she found out that Vicki and her man Steve Lodge have been double dating with her (very recent) ex-husband Michael Dodd without telling her. And then at the end of the episode, Shannon Beador invited Vicki to turn up in Mexico for old time’s sake.
For most of her time on Real Housewives of Orange County, Kelly Dodd has been a pretty polarizing character. Nevertheless, most viewers can’t help being on her side after watching the last episode.
Her “friend” Vicki Gunvalson introduced a woman to Kelly’s (very recent) ex-husband Michael Dodd and went on double dates with the duo without telling Kelly. Who does that? Of course, Michael was going to end up dating someone, but why is Vicki hanging out with them and keeping it from Kelly? SHADY.
Real Housewives of Orange County is back for Season 13. The ladies are one episode down and in all honesty it wasn’t that interesting. Nevertheless, Kelly Dodd is teasing some major drama on the horizon.
Kelly was the only one we could count on last season for consistent entertainment, so let’s hope that she pulls through for the viewers this time around as well.
After a painfully boring 12th season, the Real Housewives of Orange County really owes the fandom. The trailer for Season 13 was just released and it looks promising.
After two seasons of loyal friendship, Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson are at odds after Vicki went on a double date with her boyfriend Steve Lodge, Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd, and one of Vicki’s friends. Kelly and Michael just got divorced. Vicki is the one who set up Michael with her friend.Of course, Kelly would be upset. Plus Vicki did this during filming. It just screams like a ploy for a story line, if you ask me.
Rumors circulated that Vicki Gunvalson set up Kelly Dodd’s ex-husband Michael Dodd with a new lady, which did not sit well with Kelly (allegedly). Does Kelly have a new love interest as well?
It’s safe to assume that there won’t be an official confirmation or denial of this until the next Real Housewives of Orange County season airs, but it sure does seem like Kelly has a new man. Or, at the very least, she is strongly hinting at it.
