Vicki Gunvalson Issues Message To Fans Ahead Of ‘RHOC’: Another Scandal Looming?

Vicki Gunvalson is back for another season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and it sounds like she’s back to fixing her friendships. As it turns out, Vicki still hasn’t worked things out with her co-stars from last year, and Tamra Judge has revealed that she has no interest in working things out with her former friend. Shannon Beador is also done with Vicki, as Gunvalson hinted that David Beador had beaten Shannon during a vacation.

According to a new Bravo report, Vicki Gunvalson wants to give thanks to the fans who have supported her during her 12 seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Maybe Vicki went too far last season, and she wants forgiveness before the new season even begins.

“Wow… lots has changed in my life in the past 12 years. Thanks to those who have stuck by me through all my crazy moments captured on camera. Thank you for your love, support and patience as I endured the good, the bad and the ugly times. [Love] you,” Vicki Gunvalson revealed on Instagram, sharing her 12 cast pictures from when the show first began many years ago.

So, why is Vicki thanking her fans now, just weeks before the 12th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County starts airing? Perhaps she knows she does something that is rude or shocking to her co-stars. It’s no secret that the drama played out a few years ago when Vicki desperately tried to defend Brooks Ayers and his cancer. But she ended up looking like a fool when he admitted that he had faked his medical records. Maybe Gunvalson is thanking her fans now because she’s trying to show that she’s grateful for the viewers who have supported her through thick and thin.

It sounds like her co-stars haven’t forgiven her for the cancer drama, even though Vicki has continuously said that she was completely innocent in this entire thing. But Heather Dubrow kept telling her that she didn’t want her to take responsibility for everything – just the part she’s kept secret. In her Bravo blog The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gunvalson opened up about how her life had changed after Brooks.

“A lot has happened in my life since you last saw me on the couch last season with Andy and hopefully you will be happy with how far I have come in my personal life. I have to say last year was probably the worst year of my life, and I’m glad it’s over and behind me,” Vicki Gunvalson wrote in her Bravo blog last year as the 11th season of the show began.

“I learned a lot about myself and have finally realized that everything happens for a reason and much of it is a divine intervention. I’m finally at peace with it all, and this season you will see me trying to move on, after asking for forgiveness. Some are willing to do accept it and move on, and some aren’t which I’m actually okay with now. I’m not going to be stuck in the past anymore,” Vicki Gunvalson continued, sharing that Brooks had admitted that she knew nothing about his lies.

It will be interesting to see if Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador can forgive Vicki for everything that happened last year. Gunvalson was accused of spreading rumors about David beating Shannon and about Tamra’s husband Eddie possibly being gay. This upcoming season should explain the aftermath of the Ireland trip, where everything came out.

What do you think of Vicki Gunvalson’s post to her fans? Are you surprised that she’s thanking her fans now, just before the newest season of The Real Housewives of Orange County returns?
