Vicki Gunvalson Talks Neck Injury
After reporting earlier about Vicki Gunvalson's scary neck injury, it only made sense to go straight to the source to get the real scoop. So, The Dish hopped on the phone with the Real Housewives of Orange County original this afternoon to see how she's holding up after being taken to the hospital after a nasty skiing spill a little more than a week ago.

Vicki put it pretty bluntly, telling us: "Basically, I got whiplash. My neck is effed up," saying that she was cut off by a snowboarder which sent her tumbling forward. "When I fell my head hit the snowbank and it snapped my neck backwards. I feel like I can't move ... it's actually been more tight. I've been going [to the doctor] every three days, but it's not working," she said while driving to a doctor's appointment for another follow-up, as she hasn't felt any progression towards her neck healing since the December 28 tumble.

A nasty combination of aggressive snowboarders and steeper-than-usual slopes was to blame for the accident says Vicki, who was on vacation with boyfriend Brooks and a few other couples.

"It was weird. It happened so fast," she says of the incident.

Here's wishing Vicki a quick and speedy recovery!
