Amy Phillips: My Favorite Housewives Moment
The comedian on why Vicki Gunvalson's Whistler freak-out was a gift from the heavens.
With The Real Housewives Awards in full swing, we've asked celebrities, super fans, and pop culture icons to share why they love our hit franchise. Today, comedian and our favorite Housewives lampooner Amy Phillips (follow her on Twitter!) writes about why the OC's infamous trip to Whistler is her all-time favorite moment.
In honor of the recent winter Olympics, my favorite Housewives moment took place on the snowy slopes of Whistler, British Columbia with the cast of RHOC.
And what makes a "cat fight" even more entertaining? Activity-specific apparel, of course! When the Housewives argue with one another in their every day designer outfits, it’s delightful to watch, but it' s a game changer when the women are caught in crazy theme garb and fight like they're not even wearing it.
This is why the moment when Lauri Waring-Peterson confronted Vicki Gunvalson about having multiple partners won me over. All of the women were dressed head-to-toe in their best winter apparel and strapped into their downhill skis, ready to hit the slopes when Lauri decided to accuse Vicki of having sex with multiple partners.
Not even the glistening snow and the serene backdrop of the snowcapped Whistler mountains could keep Vicki from blowing her top. With ski goggles covering half of her face and gripping her ski poles like some demented Suzy Chapstick, Vicki screamed, "I have never been with multiple partners in my life! YOU'RE DISGUSTING!!"
This public display of crazy was a gift from the heavens. Vicki’s ability to reach a level of primal rage in less than five seconds was admirable. For this winter event, Vicki gets the gold.
