Vicki Gunvalson decided to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County this year because she wanted to get her friends back after the Brooks Ayers drama last year. Many of her co-stars had said that they had no interest in talking to her or even filming with her after last year, but they all returned even though they knew that Gunvalson would sign the contract to come back. Tamra Judge was the first one who listened to Vicki’s apology, and she decided to give her a second chance, but the other ladies were skeptical of her apology. Heather Dubrow didn’t think that her apology meant anything.
According to a new Bravo report, Vicki Gunvalson is now revealing that it was tough for her to return to the show this year because she faced so much negativity last year. Vicki has already revealed that the public had turned their backs on her, and her business, COTO Insurance, had suffered from Brooks Ayers’ lies about cancer. But she also wants people to know that there’s a lot that didn’t make it onto The Real Housewives of Orange County.

“There is a lot that you the viewers don’t know on how hard it was to start this season without having to discuss my past relationship. It was lingering problem and it had a residual affect. The beginning of the season, I always felt like I was always trying to win these girls over,” Vicki Gunvalson explains on her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of Orange County, revealing that she faced an uphill battle right from the beginning.

Gunvalson admits that she did want to make up with the ladies when she started filming The Real Housewives of Orange County last year. She was devastated over everything that she had gone through, and she just wanted her friends back. So when Vicki was crying over how everything played out during the first few episodes of this season, she really meant it. But after seeing how the ladies talked behind her back and called her a liar, Vicki Gunvalson has no interest in fixing these friendships.

“The truth of the matter is, I DID want to get back into social graces with them, but after seeing what I did on this week’s episode it’s not something I want to do anymore. It’s tough to swallow how mean and hurtful they can be. I never heard once from Shannon or Tamra, but they continue to expect apologies from me (which by the way they continued to receive). It’s so lopsided it’s a joke,” Vicki Gunvalson explains on her blog for The Real Housewives of Orange County, according to Bravo.

Part of her decision to call Tamra’s behavior a joke has to do with the T-shirt she received during the finale party. While her co-stars all got the joke with their respective T-shirts, Judge decided to create one for Gunvalson, which said she was a liar. And while Vicki laughed at the joke when they were filming, she’s now revealing that she didn’t think it was funny at all. Instead of talking about what this label could mean, Vicki Gunvalson decided to talk about how Tamra is trying to stay relevant on the show by being mean to her.

“Watching Tamra lately, I see someone who is fighting so hard to be relevant, to be the bully, the one who likes to attack, likes to stir up problems and go after others as her mission in life. I’m done with her antics and I see right through her,” Vicki Gunvalson continues on her blog for Bravo.
