This week, viewers experienced one of the most raw and emotional moments in Housewives history when Vicki Gunvalson learned that her mother had passed away. Now, the Real Housewives of Orange County is slamming cyber haters who are criticizing and questioning the validity of the scene.
After the episode aired, a fan took to Twitter suggesting that since Vicki made the call to Briana, it was fake. Vicki shut it down. “This was not staged whatsoever," she wrote. "Briana had been trying to reach me and I didn’t know why so I called her bk [sic].”
Co-star and close friend Shannon Beador backed the OG of the OC up. “No staging. Really???” she wrote. “Bad cell reception in my home and only get in certain rooms. #notnice.”
Fans also had Vicki's back, responding to the rumors and the bully who started the drama.
Regardless of haters' opinions, Andy Cohen confirmed earlier this week that Vicki wanted to show fans the heartbreaking (and very real) moment.
