Does Vicki Gunvalson Think She Can Repair Her Friendships with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador?
Is it really the end for these onetime #RHOC pals?
Vicki Gunvalson is on the outs with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador this season, seemingly more than ever before. However, the OG of The Real Housewives of Orange County is keeping the faith that this time really isn't the end.
"Well, hopefully, my relationship with Tamra is not the end," Vicki recently told The Daily Dish. "Unfortunately, we've both been hurt. Tamra hurt me bad by thinking I was in on this so-called scam [the controversy surrounding Brooks Ayers' cancer diagnosis]. I don't scam anybody. I've been scammed. And then this whole thing with Eddie [Judge] and David [Beador] actually got taken out of [context]."
Now Vicki is ready to put the past behind her, and she hopes that Tamra and Shannon feel the same. "But I'm hopeful that I can forgive them, and they can forgive me," she said. "We both have hurt each other quite a bit. I'm a big believer in forgiveness, and I think now it's time to move on."
So Vicki said that she will try to "make amends" with Tamra and Shannon this season. "So you're gonna see a lot this season, me making the efforts," Vicki teased. "Tamra knows my heart. She knows I didn't try to do anything to manipulate or influence the other ladies to not like her, which is what she's done to me. I'm willing to, let's put it behind us and move forward and be kind to each other. It's up to them. It's up to Tamra, really. I think she's the ringleader in the friendship situation. We'll see what happens."
Vicki said she feels that support from fans who have loved watching her friendship with Tamra on RHOC over the years. "If I want to harbor feelings of all the things she's done to me over the last five years, I would never be friends with her again. But I've got to choose to forgive her and move on. That's what I'm doing, that's what I'm attempting to do," Vicki said. "It's just unfortunate. She somehow thinks she didn't do anything wrong. She won't say she's sorry to me. I've asked her for forgiveness. I've said I'm sorry. So I don't know what else more I can do. I want to move on. I'm tired of fighting. I'm over it."
Tamra doesn't seem quite as ready to move on and resume her friendship with Vicki. "No. If I never speak to the woman again it would be the best day. It would be too soon," Tamra told The Daily Dish about the future of her relationship with Vicki earlier this month. "I really don't think so. I don't. I think she has done so much to me and I think she has zero boundaries. She does not care about my family, my children, my husband, my marriage, my business. She attacks my business. When somebody has zero boundaries -- and I've always said if you're gonna lie about your own life then you're gonna lie about other people's lives. So she's a liar."
As for Shannon, well, she wasn't so thrilled when Lydia McLaughlin brought up Vicki in last Monday night's episode of RHOC. Watch the moment, below.
