Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd's relationship is definitely not in the best place this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, to say the least. After Kelly expressed her anger at Vicki over spreading rumors about drug use and her parenting, these two former best friends seemed to have a cathartic moment in Arizona (clip above). But, as Vicki recently told The Daily Dish podcast, "it went back the other way again."
"I have no desire to be around people that want to hurt me. Zero," she said. "If she wants to hurt me and call me names, call me a pig and all these terrible things — I've never called her names. I've never said she looks like x, y, z. I don't do that. And I don't deserve it. I'm not going to tolerate it. So while she's on the show, we have to all hang out together, but she's not somebody I'm going to seek out in my life at this time in my life."
Vicki continued, "She's got to change, she's got to take accountability, and she's got to be nice. She's got to stop it. She's really, really changed from when she first started with me."
As for why she thought Kelly had changed, Vicki offered up this explanation: "For some reason, these women think fighting is going to keep you on longer. If that's what you want to do to stay on the show, then I'm out. I want to emulate what a businesswoman can do and what you can do after a bad relationship and how you can pull through and continue to grow a business and continue to do your best, look your best. That's inspiring."
