What better way for the OG of the OC to make her return to The Real Housewives of Orange County than with a Tres Amigas reunion?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon Storms Beador, and Tamra Judge got together for the first time in a long time on RHOC Season 15 Episode 8 — which aired July 26 — and yes, lots of tequila was involved.

The trio was so happy to be up to their old tricks that they ended up praying. “Lord, thank you for bringing us together again,” Vicki said. “I’ve missed my friends, and we’d love to learn how to whoop it up again.”

Throughout the long-awaited sit-down, Vicki shared several updates on what she’s been up to since departing RHOC. Read on to find out everything she revealed.

Where Vicki Gunvalson Has Been Living

Once Tamra pointed out that she and Vicki hadn’t seen each other in “three or four months” despite living so close, Vicki revealed why she’d been MIA for so long.

“I try to be gone a lot,” she said. “I’ve got toothbrushes everywhere. I’m spending my time in Newport Beach, Puerto Vallarta, and Coto.”

Those aren’t the only places Vicki has been visiting, though.

Vicki Gunvalson’s Update on Michael Wolfsmith and Briana Culberson

Sharing the latest on her two children, Vicki first noted that her son, Michael Wolfsmith, “bought another house in Pacific Beach, California.”

Her daughter, Briana Culberson, meanwhile, is living in Illinois (she has since moved again), Vicki said. As RHOC fans may recall, Briana and her husband, Ryan Culberson, are parents to sons Hank, Owen, and Troy, and daughter Cora Rose.

Vicki Gunvalson’s Relationship with Her Boyfriend, Michael Smith

In addition to discussing what her kids have been up to, Vicki dished on her dating life and her boyfriend, Michael Smith. As she put it, “I’ve been dating a really nice man for about a year now.”

A RHOC producer sought more information, specifically asking Vicki about her sex life. Her response? “[My] sex life is great. He’s incredible.” 

Back in conversation with Tamra and Shannon, Vicki also revealed that she does “whatever it takes” to continue looking good. “I wear crotchless panties, I wear thigh-highs, I wear whatever it takes. Because everybody’s getting older!”

Where Vicki Gunvalson Stands with a Few of the RHOC Ladies

Vicki may be happy to be reunited with Tamra and Shannon, but she’s not necessarily looking to do the same with any of their RHOC castmates. Tamra asked if she had been in touch with Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, or Heather Dubrow, to which Vicki responded, “I don’t talk to Emily and Gina. They’re not in my wheelhouse.”

As for Heather, Vicki recalled seeing her a year ago “and it was a little standoffish.” What’s more, the way she sees it, Heather thinks Vicki is “below her” because she has “an insurance company.” 

Stay tuned for more from Vicki, as the RHOC episode ended with an ominous “to be continued...”
