Vicki Gunvalson has shared what happened between her and the other housewives on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 reunion filming that happened last Thursday. On Sunday, while she was at the Santa Barbara resort with some friends for a few days of detox, Vicki did a Periscope session. As recapped by Reality Tea, during the Periscope session, Vicki revealed her current friendship statuses with Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Heather Dubrow. She also talked about her big enemy this past season, Meghan King Edmonds, and admitted that she would rather have Gretchen Rossi return to the show than Meghan.
Vicki pretty much admitted that she and Shannon did not reconcile at the reunion filming. Vicki said that they’re currently not friends. While their friendship wasn’t repaired at the reunion, Vicki sounded optimistic that it will be in the future.
“You’ll see what happens with Shannon and I at the reunion. Right now we are not friends. She believes a lie and I can’t convince her. I’m disappointed in that, but I feel like it will be OK. I think in time she’ll understand.”
The “lie” that Shannon believes that Vicki may have been referring to is the speculation that her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, with whom she was in a relationship with while filming Season 10, lied and continues to lie about having cancer. It could also be that Vicki knew that Brooks was lying about his cancer but played along with it.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, during an interview a few weeks ago, Shannon said that Vicki is too smart to not know the truth regarding Brooks’ cancer, implying that Vicki knows more than she’s letting on.
On Monday night’s episode, Shannon told the camera that the thought of Vicki possibly lying to her about Brooks having cancer is crushing.
“The possibility that I’m being duped by Vicki is crushing to me. Vicki Gunvalson might not be as good of a friend as I thought she was.”
A preview of next week’s finale episode shows things coming to a head between Vicki and Shannon Beador. Shannon, who defended Vicki earlier in the season but was then told to keep quiet when she herself told Vicki to provide medical proof of Brooks’ cancer to stop the questions, is shown screaming at Vicki. “How dare you!” Shannon yells. Shannon tells Vicki that she has dragged her into something that doesn’t make any sense.
While Vicki Gunvalson isn’t friends with Shannon Beador right now, she’s still friends with Tamra Judge. Yet, Vicki added that while she’s still friends with Tamra, they’re not hanging out much right now.
“I don’t spend a lot of time with Tamra and Eddie [Judge].”
As for Heather Dubrow, Vicki was more evasive on where things stand with her. Since Heather’s introduction to the show on the seventh season, Vicki and Heather have mostly gotten along, but haven’t become as close to one another as they have with other cast members.
Vicki was much clearer about where things stand with Meghan King Edmonds. Vicki called Meghan a “messy b**ch” who came on the show with an agenda to tear her down. Vicki’s dislike of Meghan is so strong that she would rather have Gretchen Rossi, with whom she had a lot of drama with during her time on the show, return than Meghan.
“I would rather have Gretchen on show than Meghan. Gretchen has a sweet heart. I didn’t see that with Meghan.”
As the Inquisitr reported on Monday, Meghan believes that she’ll be asked back for another season.
Gretchen, who was on the show from Seasons 4 through 8, was notified of what Vicki said about her during her Periscope session. Gretchen tweeted that what Vicki said was “very kind.”
Gretchen Rossi, who also battled with Tamra Judge during her time on The Real Housewives of Orange County, is likely shocked that Vicki Gunvalson said that she has a sweet heart. After all, two weeks ago, during her appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live with Shannon Beador, Gretchen criticized Vicki, repeatedly pointing out her hypocrisy. Gretchen even said that Meghan King Edmonds is Vicki’s karma.
“Karma showed up and her name is Meghan.”
