New season, new faces.
For the latest outing of Real Housewives of Orange County, the 'Wives are joined by some fresh names, Shannon Beador and Lizzy Rovsek. Three personalities are gone: Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and Lydia McLaughlin.
"No. Just no. I'm not going to miss her," she said. "She was such a liar and such a troublemaker. I'm ready for clean, fresh, happy new people." Later, during the After Show, when Andy Cohen asked Vicki how happy she was to learn about Gretchen's exit, she admitted, "You have no idea. I was so over it. With Gretchen comes [her fiancé] Slade…I was so over their lying and their talking mean about people." (Slade often made fun of Vicki's physical appearance.)
Conversation also turned towards Vicki's personal life—and during the After Show, Andy wondered about the fall out of last season's epic fight with her son-in-law Ryan Culberson and Lydia's mother at Vicki's Winter Wonderland Party. (He flipped out when he discovered she had soiled Vicki's white couch with dirt.) Did Vicki ever reprimand him in private?
"I didn't reprimand him," Vicki admitted. "He's my son-in-law. He got mad. There was a lot that viewers didn't see from that night. There were some situations that had been brewing all night long with Lydia and her mom…He had a right to feel what he felt. I respect his decision and his passion for the home. It's family."
On a happier note, Vicki opened up about her life as a grandmother—and the joyous news that Briana and Ryan, who have relocated to Oklahoma, are expecting another baby boy.
"Troy is amazing," she says. "He is pure joy. He calls me Nana. He gives me so much happiness. The other day I was in Oklahoma, and he held me and put his hand on me and he gives me my purse and goes through and looks for books…he's just a joy…Baby number two is coming in about two-and-a-half more months. Another boy! We don't have a name yet so Twitter me some ideas of names."
