Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki is upset Tamra didn't defend her and expounds on the real reason that Lauri is so upset with her.

on May 28, 20130

I hope everyone enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend. Having a son-in-law in the Marines and deployed to Afghanistan, made it a little more special to my family. Briana, Troy, and myself spent the weekend in the Chicago suburbs with my family celebrating my nephew's high school graduation. Everyone was so amazed on how big Troy got so it was a lot of fun. With seven bags (including the necessary stroller, carseat, play pen, three luggages bags -- Briana, I and Troy ) to say our journey of flying for five hours (due to a delay in landing at O’Hare) getting on the shuttle bus to the rental car area, waiting in line at the rental car place for one-and-a-half hours and then our one hour drive to my mom's was anything but easy. . .but we made it! Briana and I were both saying how much we missed having a man traveling with us to help us out, and she kept saying how much she appreciates Ryan and really missed him. It is sad, that they have to be apart during this time of having a new baby together but I'm glad I can be there to help them out.

Anyways, onto this week's episode. It was so sweet to see Terry and Heather go out to dinner and for Terry to give Heather that card. I think he really crashed that BRICK that I had talked about in previous episodes and I do think Terry learned from this. When Heather told Terry how much it hurt Heather about mentioning the "d word," I really think it sunk in. When you love someone, you really have to be careful of the tongue and how damaging it can be when you are angry. Marriage is hard work, and in order to have a successful relationship I think it's important to forgive and be able to learn from the mistakes and then never repeat them again. I was really happy to see that their little fight didn't continue on and that Terry did whatever he could to make Heather realize how much he loves her and their family. Enough said on that. Kudos to you Terry! I love you guys!

Vickie,  It is so apparent why these women have issues with you.  You are a strong self-made woman who needs help or support from no one!!! These women are envious of this and why shouldn't they be?? You make sound, strong decisions for yourself, your company and your family all day long.  Some of the housewives have come to you for advice. which speaks Volumes!!  

I do question where your strong, bright and intuitive mind is however, when it comes to Brooks!

He just seems so slimey and slithery.   And you know what they say,  If it looks likes a snake and slithers like a snake???  Well It must be a SNAKE!!!  Come on Strong  Smart Vickie- When will you take those Blinders off??

Vicki - I really want to reach out to you regarding my thoughts on how you come across to people. As you know, Bravo is re-broadcasting old OC shows. I find you to be very much a hater of those around you. You claim to be a Christian but your actions/comments certainly do not reflect that you are. Have you ever heard, If you do not have something nice to say, say nothing at all? None of us are perfect but there is absolutely no reason for you to bad mouth someone when they try to do something nice for you and the other women in your circle or if their loved one gives them something that you appear to be jealous of. I wonder if you ever sit down and watch yourself on these programs and are embarrassed of what comes out of your mouth. I will pray that you finally see that very negative aspect of yourself and you become the better person that God truly wants you to be.

 

In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. ~ Proverbs 3:6

Be not wise in thine own eyes: Fear the Lord, and depart from evil. ~ Proverbs 3: 7

 

Love all, trust a few and do wrong to none. ~ William Shakespeare

 

Sincerely,

So Brooks is still full of crap.  He's so fake.  He's a total player and liar the interesting thing is that there is any woman out there that buys into his lies.  Wake up Vicki!

I really used to like you Vicki, but like everyone else on here I believe you have just gotten mean.  I don't like watching you anymore nor do I enjoy anything else about you.

Vicki,you saying that someone else is weird or rude sounds like you're talking about yourself. You are very ENVIOUS of ANY of the other women who get something you don't. You talked badly about Lauri while she was supposed to be your friend, before she got married. While  George was showering Lauri wih gifts you showed how JEALOUS  you were right in front of the audience, while the cameras' were rolling! You need to watch all of the seasons of your show and really take in how RUDE you were and still ARE towards the other women.

Your fun and that's what the bachelorette party should have been!  I think Gretchen is taking out her inner problems on anger towards Tamra because she is jealous of you and Tamras relationship and doesn't want you back "in".  The girls who lingered behind could have CALLED, asked where you we're and met you!  The smartest thing you can do it just be fun and nice to everyone!  No need for you to get all involved with their problems.

Hillarious how jealous Lauri and Tamara are of you....Yes Vicki they do have a reason to be jealous you make your own money have a great family, and don't have to rely on anyone to give you things or support you.  Of course they would hate Brooks bc if you then get him....you then seem to have it all and did it all on your own....they cant say that....

I'm sorry but those strippers were nasty, they went to far. That's enough to cause a divorce before the marriage . I wouldn't want a female stripper doing that to my husband. You don't do what you wouldn't want your significant other doing.i'm single and I wouldn't want those men rubbing up against me. They were gross.

Vicky is one sad, frustrated, insecure women. I just wonder if she sees that about herself. Can she really be this blind to her faults? She's green-eyed jealous of Gretchen? How pathetic. Of all the girls, Gretchen is the easiest to understand and the sweetest.

Shame on you.  I don't think there is anyone on any of these shows as hypocritical (and yes, that IS the right word) as you.  You and your "love and light" is laughable. Your  behavior is that of a jealous woman who is mad her friend dumped her for someone else.  Shameful behavior  on what was TAMRA's weekend.  I think you need to take a good look in the mirror;  and I don't mean at your done over face, I mean look yourself in the eyes. Are you proud of yourself? If you truly are, that says it all.

Vicki - I've got news for you - in the dictionary next to the word hypocrite - is a picture of you.   You are a hypocrite - own it - you are a spiteful, manipulative, overbearing narcissist.  Watch yourself - how can you NOT see it.

Hi Vicky, I sincerely do like you and enjoy watching you. However, when you met up for your date with Brooks, I felt really sad for you. It is obvious to an outsider (like me) that he does not care for you half as much as you do for him. I know this must be hard to hear and "the heart wants what the heart wants." But it was very uncomfortable to watch you sit there crying when he seems to have moved on and is already dating other women while you fixate on him. Vicky, you are a wonderful woman with a lot to give and you can do much better. Oh and regardless of what you decide, don't let that arrogant son-in-law of yours try to tell you what to do in your own house. He has some nerve!!!!

Vicky hold out for the spinoff or move on. The latest development is not worth it! It is also clear that your business schedule is far more open and you are more available than you used to be in seasons past. remember when you had not time to think or chat because you were growing the business. I guess Michael is one heck of an agent!

Trying again. Getting a little ahead of myself here but what is it going to take for you to see what Brooks is all about. Seems like he is using you for financial reasons and now you are going to pay the price. I've heard of gigolos but this guy is a winner. You know you intentionally planned on stealing Tamra away to another bar to get back at Gretchen. How cruel you are. You don't care one hoot about anyone but yourself. I think we viewers are seeing that much more clearly now. YOu have no class. Who pees on someones bed? Totally unacceptable.

Being a businesswoman is not the ultimate accomplishment in life.  We all know you are a businesswoman--you needn't keep reminding everyone. You may have smarts in that area, but you are so deficient in others.  No need to make everything about you.

I was really disappointed that Vicki hijacked Tamara's bachelorette trip.  The trip was not about you, Vic.  You should have rolled with the punches--it's not like you haven't been to Mexico before.

HI Vickie,

 

Time to pack it up on this show. This is just very bad, Very bad, Too much sweetheart.

Watching Tamra and Gretchen become friends was a beautiful thing to see.  Watching you try to destroy their friendship, Vicki, has been an ugly thing to see.  Vicki, forget about 'the old days' with Tamra and get on with your life.  Ask God to send you a friend who will connect with you the way Tamra and Gretchen have connected.  And, it seems that you would enjoy your life so much more if you were to give up deliberately being stupid (for example the Mexico trip).  Sure, no one is smart all the time, but why plan to be stupid?  The smart life is a lot more fun overall!

Hi Vicki,

Today's the ninth of June. I just want to say that there are people that do not want to see you succeed. It's amazing when you travel around these sites how much venom there is. 

Vicki, I'm on the east coast, and we probably wouldn't be friends, but if you and I were to actually meet, then I think we would.

Be friends that is..lol..

Vicki I know that everyone goes to Mexico to have fun, but you were acting like a college kid on spring break. Which is a little inappropriate for you age. Your way past being 20.

@Lovethesun101 lol JUST gotten mean?? Umm have you been watching all the seasons. Sadly Vicki is nicest this season, since she is in a insecure place in her relationships. When she was married to Donn and had more "confidence" in life she was 20x worse. She is a vicious lady!

@JESSICAMILLER You must have been watching a different show. Heather and Gretchen did nothing but continuously call and text. They weren't just sitting there like boo boo the fool, doing nothing. It's rude to leave your friends behind, why condone her malicious behavior?

 ...and how is this hypocritical?  I don't see it.  I think that Gretchen was desperate to receive recognition for putting it all together and it would have been nice if she would have given credit to Heather for helping her design the bathing suit they gave.  People see what they wanna see.

Jodibelle

 @eletra99 She's not happy that Gretchen struck out on her own and made it all work.  Gretchen went to her for advice, but didn't take it.  She slowly but surely built up her business and it's working.  I applaud Gretchen. And those bags were the cutest!!

 @Linny-lou Here here Linny-lou on the son-in-law telling her what to do in her house.  Last I checked not only was it your house, but you are the adult (grown over them) and I wish my son's anything or my son for that matter would tell me about who I'm going to or allowed to have as company in MY house.  You better remind them who the parent is and who the child is.

 

shonett.ellison

 @franco

 and what of Michael...why don't we see more of your relationship with him?  I'm sad that there is more focus on your relationship with Briana than there is with your son.  It almost looks as though you don't have a relationship with him anymore.

shonett.ellison

 @Barbarajean

 Did you hear Tamara and Heather specifically say out of their own mouths that they didn't want to go out and they were going to bed?  Why does it matter if she "stole" Tamara when clearly she wanted to go have a good time (and DID)?  It is unfortunate that Brooks is an opportunist, but it's also unfortunate that any woman would act as though they haven't been in that same place at some point in their life.  She'll see her own value at some point.  We aren't all good judges of character all the time...look in your own rearview mirror.  Hello.

 @Barbarajean

 I have to agree.  Vicki, you have just gotten mean.  You don't like your friends to have other friends or that will piss you off and yes we have all seen it.  You are very low class, and if you can't hold it, You think you are all that and you aren't.  I used to like you, but you just aren't nice anymore and I think you are acting like a child.  GROW UP!!!!!!  It isn't all about you

 @mothership I love that comment because Vicki thinks that she is so classy and better than everyone else but yet the day they were at the vineyards and she decided to leave she was all like "I'm out" and that just does not sound like someone who claims to be so "I'm better than everyone!" Now, do you think you would hear Lisa Vanderpump say something like that? NO!! And then last season this whole "Brooks is my man" crap at the season finale. These phrases just do not say "PERFECT, O.C., WEALTHY BUSINESSWOMAN." I really think she needs to start taking some lessons on how to sound more "educated." I'm just an ordinary person and not FAKE in any way so when I see these women acting the way they do, it just makes me laugh. Nobody is genuine, it's all about the materialistic stuff and there are times I thank God that I am the person I am. Grow up Vicki and stop being so PHONY!

 @lindaaaaaaaaaaaa

 Frankly, I'm glad Vicki's plan worked....Gretchen was being a bore!  That trip started out soooo snooty and pretencious.  I find it interesting that Gretchen had no problem getting assistance from Heather, but not from any of Tamara's other girlfriends.  And, then she didn't give Heather credit for her role.  Wake up people!Gretchen is self-centered and pretencious and this friendship with Tamara isn't going to last because so is Tamara.

Jodibelle

 @lindaaaaaaaaaaaa I was glad to see Tamra stick up for Gretchen and that she heard Vicki say "plan worked."  That shows that Tamra is on to Vicki that she's not just going to fall under the spell of "Vicki rules"

 @eavila  She's not dead.  That's how Gretchen and Heather were acting....except when the strippers were around.  If I had to choose between the two nights, I'd pick the night out having drinks with the girls, dancing, and going back to the hotel versus the night staying in and having some sleazeball strippers come to the room and sexually assault me, while expecting me to pay them dollar bills while they did it!  The only reason you're chastising Vicki is because she, Lydia & Tamra didn't tell Heather & Gretchen in person that they were leaving to go to Andale's, even though Lydia said she sent a text and called the restaurant hostess to let them know where they were going.

 @doxyroxy If you read my comment I said that everyone goes to Mexico to have fun. Vickie was acting like a college kid on spring break since the beginning of the trip this was before she got drunk and before the boring dinner. I'm all for the drinking and dancing. She was just trying so hard to be 20 again and it did not look good. She could of at least waited till she was drunk then she would have an accuse.

 @doxyroxy  @eavila Gretchen and Heather both said they wanted to go back to the hotel and go to bed. They said that at the fancy dinner at the (boring) restaurant that Heather picked. OK. The others wanted to go out. More power to them. But yeah, they should have waited and parted ways outside the restaurant. Sneaking away while the other 2 were in the restroom was pretty low.

 @karenmom  @doxyroxy  @eavila

 @karenmom why was it low for them to leave?  All Gretchen and Heather were going to do was convince Tamara not to go.  That dinner was a snoozefest...I'm still snoring! ha, ha, ha, ha...go team Vicki!  She could plan my Bachelorette party anytime!
