Vicki Gunvalson has been filming The Real Housewives of Orange County since it first started airing back in 2006. She is the only housewife who has stuck around since the very beginning, as Kimberly Bryant, Jo De La Rosa, Lauri Waring, and Jeana Keough all left the show. Other housewives have since replaced them, but Vicki remains the only original housewife.
Since Gunvalson has filmed the show for over eight years, she has shared both ups and downs. Her business, COTO Insurance, has grown into a huge empire since the very first episode, but Vicki has also shared some heartbreaks. Gunvalson has suffered heartbreak from divorce, fights, and lost friendships.
According to a new post on Facebook, Vicki Gunvalson still believes that she has the best fan base out of everyone on The Real Housewives of Orange County. This past season proved to be quite a mouthful, as she learned that Tamra Barney may not be such a good friend after all. Even then, she knew that she could rely on her fans to tell her the truth and back her up.
“Ok… I have been reading through the comments you’ve posted and I have been so touched by them all. I absolutely, hands-down have the BEST group of supporters EVER!!! You encourage me in so many ways you can’t even imagine. Loving all of you. Thanks for your support. #OGfromtheOC,” Vicki Gunvalson revealed on Facebook as the season came to an end.
Of course, fans haven’t always supported Vicki’s decisions over the years. When she decided to date Brooks Ayers, people were questioning her decisions after learning that he had said some rude things to people. Ayers admitted to telling Vicki’s daughter’s husband to beat her to get her to stay in life. Vicki never really came to Briana Culberson’s defense, but Briana decided to cut Brooks out of her life.
Vicki Gunvalson continues to date Brooks and they recently spent Labor Day together. She doesn’t really know where their relationship can go, but she wants to have fun and not be alone.
According to The Inquisitr, Vicki Gunvalson got to speak her mind in regards to Tamra Barney. She admitted she wasn’t really sure where their friendship stood, and Barney flipped out over the accusation that she had been stirring up drama. In Bali, Vicki broke down after learning that Barney had talked about Brooks in a negative manner behind Vicki’s back.
Are you surprised that Vicki Gunvalson has the most supportive group of fans behind her, especially after this revealing season?
