Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki shares how hard this season has been -- and why she's so surprised by Tamra's turn.

Alexis, I thought, did a fabulous job on defending herself. She has become a very dear friend to me and regardless of what people say about her, she is a great person. Reflecting back on how Tamra spoke to her in Costa Rica about "being a true person and throwing her money away" was just down right mean. We all need money in this world to survive, and all of the times I have been around Alexis and Jim this past year they are the most genuine people I know. I would question Tamra, if Eddie didn't have any money would you still be with him? I doubt it. Furthermore, Tamra does not work and it would be very difficult for her to support her three young children with no child support, Eddie. To say money doesn't matter to Tamra, is being a "hypocrite." Oops. . .did I say that?

Heather is a class act. I have really enjoyed getting to know her and Terry this season and I hope to have a lifelong friendship with them. Now that the show is over and summer is here, we haven't been able to see each other as often as we like, but we truly care about one another and could never see it getting bad between us. But then I've said that before.

I've seen Gretchen become more mature these past few years. There is a lot of s--t stirring she has done, which has caused some unnecessary issues with Tamra and I which I wish could have been avoided. I wish her and Slade a lifetime of happiness and am glad that he has seemed to come out to the drama that was focused on him a few years back. Looks like all that has shifted towards Brooks this season. Wonderful!
