Vicki Gunvalson Announces New Partnership Days After Dropping ‘Kill All Cancer’ Charity

Vicki Gunvalson has been trying to clear her name ever since she got caught up in a cancer scandal last year. While Vicki kept trying to defending Brooks Ayers, telling everyone who would listen that her boyfriend did indeed have cancer, Ayers himself was busted for lying about his medical records in a nationwide interview. To clear her name, Vicki teamed up with a charity called Kill All Cancer, which distributes money donated to various cancer charities. Some people believed that Vicki was only working with the charity to get money as a business deal and getting paid for speaking out on behalf of the charity.

According to a new tweet, Vicki Gunvalson revealed that she has moved on from Kill All Cancer because it was bad timing for her, but she’s not dropping all business deals. Just days after announcing the end of her partnership with Kill All Cancer, Gunvalson announced a brand new business deal. In this new deal, she will make money by selling nail gel. Even though a cancer charity was bad for her image, one has to wonder how this business deal would work for her.

“Very EXCITED to announce my partnership with Mini Mani Moo nail gel,” Vicki Gunvalson announced this week, sharing a picture of a nail kit.

“Congratulations sweetie!” former Real Housewives of Orange County star Peggy Tanous tweeted Vicki, to which Gunvalson replied, “Thanks Peggy!”

It’s no secret that Gunvalson’s finances struggled after Brooks Ayers admitted that he had lied about his medical records. While he never admitted to lying about having cancer, Vicki Gunvalson was guilty by association because she had defended him so much. He simply didn’t care about her reputation being ruined, and this year, when The Real Housewives of Orange County returned, Vicki admitted that her business had taken a hit after the scandal. But she also revealed that she was working hard to get her life back on track.

And maybe she felt that working with Kill All Cancer was the perfect way to redeem herself. Sadly, Real Housewives of Orange County fans felt that she was just trying to get money by selling a cancer charity to the public. And this could be why people might not be eager to buy her nail kits. Some people are just not interested in supporting a woman financially who has possibly lied about a loved one having cancer.

“I just shut it down because there was a lot of naysayers out there. I’m not going to do something that’s going to be criticized when I did it from a good place,” Vicki revealed to Entertainment Tonight just a few days ago, according to Bravo. She followed up by saying, “And it wasn’t my charity. I was just a spokesperson for it. So it wasn’t mine.”

“I was approached by a team of professionals to make a difference in people’s lives through insurance products, donations, and to be part of a charity that can help people who are suffering from cancer,” Vicki Gunvalson pointed out in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of Orange County earlier this month. “I’ve lost so many friends and family members from all different types of cancer and will fight for the cause and a cure. With my platform, you people reading this, and my friends, the best way to turn a negative into a positive for me is to use my voice and make a difference.”

What do you think of Vicki Gunvalson launching a new partnership just days after ending her partnership with Kill All Cancer? Do you think she needs to slow down on the partnerships that are financially beneficial to her since people think she’s just using people for money?
