The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has never hidden the fact that she always puts her career before filming the show. Unlike some of the previous housewives, Vicki has prided herself on the fact that she worked to make her money before spending it, unlike many of the other housewives. Over the show’s history, several bankruptcy cases have been documented.
On the show, Vicki is always talking about the importance of working and making money. She is always typing away on the computer or making phone calls when the other women are lunching in the middle of the day. She has admitted that she is addicted to her business, which is selling insurance under the COTO Insurance brand.
According to a new tweet, Vicki Gunvalson is now using her professional platform for something good. Unlike other housewives in the Bravo franchise, Vicki hasn’t done much to earn money from her platform. She did start Wines by Wives last season with Tamra Barney, but that quickly fell flat thanks to Vicki’s new relationship and Tamra’s decision to open a fitness studio.
In fact, Vicki Gunvalson really didn’t try profiting from her Bravo fame until last year, when she launched her own line of vodka. But people want to know about her road to success, not drink her vodka. Vicki listened to her fans and she has now written a book about business. The book will share tips for women in business.
“I’m so EXCITED about my new book launch!! You can order a copy on Amazon or go to my vickigunvalson.com website,” she revealed on Twitter. She didn’t provide a release date, but it sounds like the book may already be done and waiting to go into production.

Gunvalson has been on the show since the very beginning, and one can imagine that her reality television career has influenced the success she has had with her insurance sales. According to The Inquisitr, Vicki has often said that she would leave the show because she didn’t like being judged by her co-stars. However, she always returns to Bravo and one can imagine it is because her reality image markets her business in Orange County.
One of the chapters in the book may be about growing and expanding your business. Gunvalson recently decided to put her house on the market, which is the home where she started the business. She wants to move into a new home and start over, as her divorce has been finalized. Her daughter, Briana Culberson, has also moved away from Orange County to support her husband with his career, so she has nothing holding her there.
Do you look forward to reading Vicki Gunvalson’s book? Do you think fans of the show will find the book worth while?
