Vicki Gunvalson: It's Family First, Then Work

"If you don't have your family intact, nothing else matters," she says.

By Lauren Metz

Think family takes a back seat to business for Vicki Gunvalson? Think again.

Sure, she's passionate about her job (to say the least!) but rest assured, the mom of two says she has her priorities properly squared away. "The misconception is that I'm putting work in front of family. The answer to that is, 'No,'" the Real Housewives of Orange County star dishes to E! Online. "I get a lot of heat for that. [People say], 'If you would contribute your time to your family as much as you do your work, your family wouldn't be dissolving... You're just seeing me saying I have to go to work because that's when I'm filming, so that's just a big misconception. My family is my everything. If you don't have your family intact, nothing else matters."

The founding Housewife even goes on to offer a slim glimmer of hope that her marriage may come off life support, after all. "[Donn and I] are very cordial. We hope we're making the right decision," she states about her divorce-pending situation. "We're doing mediation. I love Donn, I respect Donn, I want the best for Donn. If I'm it, then we'll stay together. If I'm not it, then we won't."
