Vicki Gunvalson: Shannon Believes I Am Responsible for Everything

"I believe in all of my heart, that Shannon is one of the main reasons why Tamra and I have not been able to reconcile. "

Did Vicki Gunvalson Lie About Cancer?

Can you believe tonight is our 200th episode of RHOC? Thank you to all of you that have watched us from season one. It’s been a wild ride hasn’t it?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Now onto this episode. First, I was proud of both Lydia and Peggy to stay calm when it came to Shannon and the inter-workings of these group of women. I need to learn from them, as obviously I am guilty of having high emotions when it comes to my life and what some of my “friends attempt” to accuse me of which are blatant lies and fabricated truths.

Lydia and Shannon Go Head to Head

As you saw, when I left Kelly’s to go back to work, there was a situation with Lydia and Shannon that I was unaware of. Lydia is right. Whenever you are around Shannon, there seems to be an energy where the mood changes immediately. I believe in all of my heart, that Shannon is one of the main reasons why Tamra and I have not been able to reconcile. What I don’t understand is Tamra has always been a strong opinionated woman, but as you can see when Shannon calls her name to “come here now”...Tamra crawled to her like a puppy who was being scolded. It was the strangest thing.

When I told Steve at the volleyball game that I was sad and just wanted to was the truth. I don’t like being in conflict and I’m tired of it. I am not responsible for what people say about one another, I am only responsible for what comes out of my mouth. I am not responsible for what Ricky revealed last week and I am not homophobic.

Tamra if you are reading this – I will say it for the last time. I did not start this “rumor” nor do I care about Eddie’s past. I did not “set Ricky up at my party to discuss about anything about Eddie”. From what I have witnessed, I know you both love each other and that’s what is important. That’s it. I really don’t think it needs to be discussed any further and wish you would stop blaming me for this. 

I loved it when Steve said “guys can get in a fight and then go have a beer”. It’s the truth. I have never been around any men that have continued to fight after something that is over two years ago. I mean...come on. I guess that is why I have so many male friends, because they don’t nitpick at everything you say, and they don’t harbor hard feelings and anger the way some women do. I respect Steve’s calm demeanor and he thinks if we met Tamra and Eddie for dinner alone without any outside influences, we may be able to have a meeting of the minds and put this anger and conflict aside. What do you think?

It was sad for me to see the disconnect between Shannon and David, and I am hopeful that they will make it through this difficult time in their marriage. I will not be baited into any further discussions regarding it.

From what I see, Shannon believes I am responsible for everything, for global warming, climate changes, and I’m sure I am to blame for most recently the two devastating hurricanes and the fires in the Western US.

I am hopeful and pray daily for peace amongst us women, because that is what would make me happy and I believe it would make them happy too. As a Christian, forgiveness is one of the gifts we have as it is a new beginning and not looking back. I am really enjoying my friendships with Kelly, Peggy and Lydia along with their families. I hope Meghan doesn’t go down the road of pot stirring. I sure would be nice if she doesn’t go there.

Stay tuned as I think you will be happy to see what is coming up in later episodes.

Still to Come This Season on RHOC...
