Vicki Gunvalson Charity: ‘RHOC’ Star Denies Using Charity To Make Money Despite Getting Leads
Vicki Gunvalson has tried to clean up her image over the past year, as people were very skeptical of her after her relationship with Brooks Ayers. Many people believed that Gunvalson knew that Ayers was faking his illness as she kept making up excuses for him in an effort to keep her relationship happy. But after The Real Housewives of Orange County ended last year, Brooks admitted that he had fabricated his medical records. Even though Brooks admitted to lying about his documents in an effort to shut people up, he says that he is still sick with cancer. Vicki wanted to clear her name and got involved with a cancer charity called Kill All Cancer.
According to a new tweet, Vicki Gunvalson is now defending her decision to get involved with the charity to clear her name. At the time, she felt it was the best decision for her to help clear her name. What could be better than raising money to fight the disease that she was accused of lying about?

However, the charity didn’t exactly give money to a specific cause. Instead, the charity divided the money to various cancer charities, and Vicki Gunvalson admitted on the reunion that she could collect email addresses and possibly pitch life insurance to them. In other words, this had become a lead generator for her business.
“WOW so the charity site was really a lead generation for Vicki Gunvalson she is disgusting and pathetic #RHOC,” one person wrote to Vicki Gunvalson after hearing what she had to say about the cancer scandal on The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion this year.

“That’s not true at all! Get your facts straight,” Gunvalson replied to the viewer on Twitter, even though she admitted on the reunion special that she used the Kill All Cancer charity to get people to opt-in so she could present her life insurance packages to these people.

During the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Vicki Gunvalson revealed that she couldn’t collect people’s email addresses unless they opted in. Andy Cohen questioned what she needed the emails for, and that’s when she started talking about insurance. People were quickly questioning why she would use cancer to build leads for her insurance business, something she’s now denying on Twitter. Instead of focusing on the charity drama, Vicki wants to focus on her family and her growing business.
