Vicki Gunvalson may be a veteran on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but it sounds like people are slowly changing their minds about the long-standing housewife. For a long time, Vicki earned respect from viewers by telling people what she thought, by working hard and by providing an interesting storyline that included heartbreak, divorce and working through the pain. But ever since Vicki introduced Brooks Ayers to viewers, people’s minds have changed about her.
She kept defending a man who lied about having cancer, and she made some poor decisions about getting involved with a cancer charity that ended up just distributing donated money. And as people’s opinions have changed, so has the tweets she’s receiving. Over the past year, Gunvalson has been fighting off tweets about how she’s a scam and how she’s untrustworthy since she had her blinders on with Brooks.
According to a new tweet, Vicki Gunvalson is now turning the tables on her Twitter followers. For a long time, Vicki kept replying to people who were critical of her decisions, especially her relationship with Brooks. And she fought back with the same kind of words that people used in tweets to her. But this weekend, things changed and Vicki Gunvalson is dealing with hater and a copycat.

“Ugh was mine too but I can’t watch w/o wanting to punch Vicki Gunvalson in the face doe,” one younger viewer wrote about once liking The Real Housewives of Orange County but then changing her mind thanks to Vicki, to which Gunvalson wrote back, “That’s rude. You want to punch me in the face? Is that a threat? Anger issues?”
Apparently, this was the only tweet that Vicki Gunvalson shared on Twitter. After her tweet about being threatened, a parody Twitter account that used her exact name, picture and close username started tweeting with Gunvalson’s haters, which resulted in tweets that continued on the threats.
“Its this a threat? Anger issues? Bipolar? Schizophrenia? Anxiety? Depression? #sued,” the parody account for Gunvalson continued on Twitter, clearly causing confusion for many of the users.
When the tweets were first published, people were confused as it didn’t sound like Vicki at all. Of course, Twitter is a place where people can speak their minds, and surely, the teenager wouldn’t punch Vicki in the face if they were standing face to face. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t the kind of person who would yell at people, threaten to sue teenagers or even get lawyers involved. She has been on the show for 11 seasons and she’s been through quite a bit.

And while Vicki Gunvalson is trying to get the issue with the parody account resolved, it sounds like some people do want her to speak out about her friendship with Kelly Dodd.
“As much as I love Vicki Gunvalson what right has she got to demand everyone but Kelly Dod be fired. It’s not HER show she just got rehired,” one person wrote about Vicki Gunvalson’s constant comments about The Real Housewives of Orange County being her show, to which Vicki replied, “I didn’t just get “rehired”, nor did I try to get anyone fired. Be careful on repeating rumors that is not true.”
And when people started talking about Vicki’s involvement with the cancer charity, she replied, “Ignorant comment! I lost 3 family member & friends from cancer in 2016.I’ll do whatever I can to help find a cure. #ushould2.”
What do you think about Vicki Gunvalson threatening to sue a teenager for a tweet? Do you think she was overreacting or do you think she has every right to sue?
