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.
I don’t know who put Real Housewives Of Orange County on Adderall but thank you Tamra Judge‘s Jesus because this season is so good. So much was packed into a 10 hour time period it was like drama sardines.
Shannon Beador is at Urgent Care deciding if she wants to press charges against Kelly Dodd for assault, or assault Kelly with guilt tripping and shaming over the harm she’s done to Shannon’s zen cortex. As if that’s gonna work. HA! Also if the police showed up to question Kelly she would assume they were strippers and start propositioning them.
Being the good friend that she is, Tamra is in the doctor’s office laughing behind her hand. Tamra is thanking herself for all the good work she is doing driving a huge, HUGE wedge between Shannon and Kelly after conniving Shannon her leaking spinal fluid was making her go blind.
When it comes to marriage and divorce on reality TV, no one has more experience than the OG of the OC.
Last week on the Watch What Happens Live After Show, Vicki Gunvalson spoke out about her Real Housewives of Orange County castmate Emily Simpson‘s rocky relationship with husband Shane Simpson, and offered her take on how the clashing couple can get back on track.
The OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, is navigating her way through her first season of being demoted to Friend of status. Coming back for her 14th season must be difficult for the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, but you have to respect the fact that she didn’t just walk away from the show. Vicki probably didn’t want to give up her status as a reality star, despite the embarrassing demotion.
Viewers have watched Vicki through the years–building her business, raising her children Briana Culberson and Michael Wolfsmith and undergoing numerous cosmetic procedures. Not to mention her shady shenanigans with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Although Vicki is now engaged to Steve Lodge, many viewers have maintained a fondness for her ex Donn Gunvalson. So, where does their relationship stand today?
Tamra Judge has capitalized on Vicki Gunvalson’s (relative) absence during the current Real Housewives of Orange County season. She has thrown her “best friend” under the bus. Yet again.
Tamra claimed that Vicki was the one who revealed the train rumor about Kelly Dodd, giving Kelly even more vitriol against her nemesis. Strangely, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke were present when TAMRA was the one who mentioned the word “train” and explained what it was. Yet here they are going along with the convenient narrative that Vicki brought this up during filming. Vicki has done a lot of terrible things on RHOC, particularly to Kelly, but she didn’t quite pull the trigger on this one. Yes, it was very obvious that she was in on an orchestrated plan to take down Kelly, but there’s more to it than that. Much more, and it’s not just about Tamrat.
On the current Real Housewives of Orange County season, Kelly Dodd is dating Dr. Brian Reagan. After announcing their breakup, accusing Brian of using her publicity, and claiming that he cheated on her, Kelly announced her new relationship thirty seconds later.
She is now dating Fox News anchor Rick Leventhal. They even have wedding plans. Well, she does. He, on the other hand, hasn’t even proposed.
There has been a shake-up in the Housewives universe lately. Lisa Vanderpump quit Real Housewives of Beverly Hills over “puppy gate.” Thanks again to Dorit Kemsley for that fiasco. Bethenny Frankel shocked everyone (including her co-stars) when she walked away from Real Housewives of New York.
And there was some stunning news from Real Housewives of Orange County. The “OG” of the OC was demoted. That’s right–Vicki Gunvalson lost her orange after being on the series since the launch. Vicki even managed to
coerce get a proposal from her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, but it wasn’t enough to save her full-time position.
Tamra Judge is back for her 12th–yes–12th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. In that time, she has co-starred with–and emotionally exhausted–19 other Housewives. As Vicki Gunvalson is now a Friend of, Tamra is the new reigning queen of the show. Like it or not!
On the most recent RHOC episode, reigning queen Tamra was moving her mother into a senior apartment and found out that she has been storing something that Tamra would probably rather forget. No, not embarrassing lawsuits, her son Ryan Vieth’s shameful antics or nemesis Gretchen Rossi–her old wedding dress from her toxic marriage to Simon Barney.
