The first episode of Heather Dubrow's podcast premiered last week, and it was a doozy. Hot off of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Heather's fellow 'wives Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador joined her to discuss where things stand with Vicki Gunvalson now. Each expressed doubts about continuing her friendship with Vicki after the most recent season. Of course, once that episode ended, we all wanted to know what Vicki has to say about this.
At the beginning of the latest episode of Heather Dubrow's World (released Tuesday), Heather gave us an update on how Vicki responded to last week's show. "I just want everyone to know I did invite Vicki on the show, and she declined," Heather said on her podcast.
However, she did speak to Vicki over the phone after receiving a "loud" voicemail from the OC OG after the episode aired. "We're not agreeing on things, but we did have, I thought, a good conversation," Heather said.
In fact, now that Vicki's ex Brooks Ayers has been frequently in the press these days, Heather said she actually sympathizes with Vicki over what she is going through. "I feel bad that she's in a bad place," Heather said. "That doesn't mean I agree with what's happened this year, but I feel bad about that."
Earlier in the episode, Heather responded to critics that said last week's episode of Heather Dubrow's World was something of a "Vicki-bashing session." "That was not my intention at all," Heather said, explaining that's why she made it a point to go into details about her feelings for Vicki at the beginning of last week's episode. "I made a point to say, you know, here's what's going on with me and Vicki because I didn't want it to appear that way."
Heather said she even texted Vicki right before she recorded this week's podcast to invite her to call in, but Vicki declined the invitation once more. "I do believe she should have a fair chance to tell her side of the story and tell her feelings, so I guess we'll wait to hear if she releases any statements," Heather said.
