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?
One of the things I like about the Bravo network is they aren’t afraid to take chances on airing new and different material. Not every show has to be about housewives gossiping behind other’s backs and then denying it. Ahem, like a certain train rumor from Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson…or was it Tamra Judge? Or Shannon Beador? The mystery continues…
A few years ago, Bravo decided to take the leap into scripted TV series with shows like Odd Mom Out, Imposters, and Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. All very good shows, which unfortunately ended up cancelled. Bravo even produced a drama, Dirty John, which got Connie Britton an Emmy nomination. Now they are going back to their reality TV roots and are debuting a new show with a very different twist.
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.
When Bethenny Frankel announced on August 21 that she was leaving Real Housewives of New York, everyone was stunned. Viewers were stunned. Her RHONY co-stars were stunned. It was the departure that no one expected.
Bethenny’s new man, Paul Bernon, is very private and doesn’t want to be on camera, so that could be one reason for Bethenny’s departure. There were also rumblings that Bravo executives were angry for months that Bethenny had plans to produce unscripted shows for television with Mark Burnett.
When it comes to the drama this season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Emily Simpson is firmly — and unapologetically — on Team Kelly.
In a new interview with gossip site TooFab, the OC’s resident lawyer with the good hair dished on the nasty divide among her fellow ‘Wives and why she’s choosing to support former frenemy Kelly Dodd against the Tres Amigas.
Surprise, surprise, Vicki Gunvalson doesn’t like the new girl.
Over the past fourteen years, the OG of the OC has become famous for her unapologetic hazing of new cast members on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and it looks like Braunwyn Windham-Burke is no exception.
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.
It’s mommy issues galore on Real Housewives Of Orange County! Can’t nobody raise a child right?!
Let’s start with Gina Kirschenheiter, who must Uber to the birthday party Emily Simpson is throwing for Annabelle. Then Gina gets there so late the Happy Birthday has already been sung. I thought Gina was actually bringing a used car seat as a gift until she revealed that she’s officially unable to drive until her DUI is resolved, and is actually Ubering everywhere.
As the party wraps up, after Gina treats herself to tiger face paint, she and Emily get to talking about… Gina. Which is all they ever talk about! This time Gina is panicked over how close she came to being arrested in her home in front of her children, and how scaring that would be. Emily likens it to the time she had to be taken away in an ambulance. Which pisses Gina off.
