As the Real Housewives of Orange County continues its eleventh season, the biggest question remaining is whether or not Vicki Gunvalson can make amends with her co-stars.
Gunvalson is still picking up the pieces caused by last season’s cancer scam, and things haven’t improved yet. Will her fellow Housewives ever forgive what happened?
According to People, Meghan King Edmonds is not ready to forgive Gunvalson, at least not at this time.
Gunvalson found herself at the center of controversy last season when Edmonds accused her boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, of lying about having cancer.
The situation worsened after the ladies found out that Ayers had forged medical documents, leaving many to suspect that Gunvalson knew about the lies all along.
“I think people think that I was little overzealous, and maybe I was,” Edmonds admitted. “But it really sucked to be dealing with cancer, with my friend LeeAnn dying of cancer, and to see this guy Brooks, this sleaze ball trying to profit off of cancer with Vicki.”
At the same time, Edmonds isn’t happy with Gunvalson, whom she labeled a “filthy liar” last year.
“I’m honestly shocked at how everything went down with Vicki as this season progressed,” she shared.
Despite the ill feelings, Edmonds revealed that she eventually made things right with Gunvalson. However, their reconciliation was short-lived.
“You’re gonna see reconciliation and see it go backwards again.”
Meanwhile, Gunvalson’s relationships with the other women on the show might be headed in the right direction.
According to She Knows, a crisis on the latest episode of RHOC causes Tamra Judge to rush to Gunvalson’s side.
“[Vicki] called me, and I’m like, ‘What’s wrong?’ I was freaking out,” Judge told the camera. “And she was like, ‘It’s not good. It’s not good.’ And then I could hear Briana in the background … Those are the sounds you never erase from your mind, her gasping for breath. It was just not good.”
Gunvalson and Judge have been fighting throughout this season of RHOC. Will the medical scare finally pull them together?
While Gunvalson’s relationship with Judge might be on the mend, the same can’t be said about Heather Dubrow.
“Vicki took me aside to chat on the boat. I wasn’t expecting this — but basically, I want her to take accountability for her part of the scam last year,” Dubrow wrote on her Bravo blog. “I don’t blame her for Brooks’ actions — just her involvement. Clearly, she’s not going to own any of it. She said last year at the reunion that she lied and then she took it back and said she had no involvement. It’s exhausting.”
“I’m not mean and angry. I have forgiven her. I’ve moved on. I don’t think about her,” Beador explained to E! News.
“I don’t want a friendship with her. I’ve forgiven, but I don’t want to be her friend.”
At least that’s a step in the right direction.
New episodes of the RHOC air Monday nights on Bravo.
