Vicki Gunvalson calls herself the "OG of the OC" because she's the only person who can say she's appeared on all 13 seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County, which began way back in 2006. She's seen Housewives and husbands and boyfriends come and go, all the while building up her own insurance company empire, raising two kids, and being a grandmother to two.
So, clearly, Vicki knows a lot about what it's like to be a Real Housewife. Luckily, she's willing to share her wisdom, as she did with one of the youngest 'Wives, Ashley Darby from The Real Housewives of Potomac (who turned 30 in June) when they met on Housewife to Housewife.
"I've been watching Vicki for years since I was very young, so to be able to talk to her face to face is very exciting!" Ashley shared before they met.
When they sat down together, Ashley had a question for Vicki: What's the biggest secret to getting through it all?
"I don’t know how long this whole wagon is going to keep going for, but just embrace it, enjoy it, and have fun and don't take it too serious," Vicki told her. In other words, whoop it up!
Ashley had even more questions for Vicki, like if she was able to run normal errands after being on TV for more than a decade. Watch the video above to hear what The Real Housewives veteran has to say about her public life now.
