Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki says Lauri's poor timing was motivated and that she's revealed more about herself in her talk about Brooks.

on Jul 8, 20130

Sorry for the delay in posting this blog. The urgency to do these blogs has somewhat gone away due to how I am being attacked this season. It's wrong, filled with lies, unjustifiable, and just plain mean what Lauri has been saying about me. It's hard to understand why or how she has chosen to take a reality show as her forum for her anger, but I guess to each it's own.

This week's episode was supposed to be about Tamra and Tamra's wedding dress shopping day. I took the day off of work to join the ladies because I sincerely wanted to be there for Tamra. Hindsight, I should have stayed at my office. I would have at least had a non-stressful day. I had no idea Lauri was going to unload on me. Instead of it being a happy day for Tamra, it was an upset day for me. Figures -– just my luck lately!

When Lauri showed up at Tamra's house, I was somewhat shocked to see her. She would be the LAST person that I would expect to join us wedding dress shopping because the last time I saw Lauri (which was a few years ago) she told me how much didn't like Tamra. I figured she was "back" to either poke her nose in and give Tamra advice on what to do with her wedding, or she wanted to be back to character assassinate Brooks. It is very strange to have her appear. She sure couldn't appear as BORING LAURI as obviously that wouldn't be fun to watch now would it. Hence -- her motive.

Why did no one call out Vicki on her Greek God lie on the last reunion show? The camera's showed her talking about him! Vicki you are a true hypocrite trying to keep p with your pretty friends. You say you own it when confronted but that is just another one of your lies. You are soooo condescending to every other woman on the show like they are all idiots compared to your uneducated self, just because YOU chose to make work your whole life instead of having a happy marriage don't knock other women down who prefer to put the work into their marriages.

Wow...Vicki for an intelligent woman you sure are stupid. Brooks is a loser. Period. That is not a man in love, but rather an opportunist. Move on with your life, trust your daughter's intuition. Maybe you could meet a nice ski instructor....not too sure you were ever really on a ski team as you say, since those of us who know how to ski don't wedge it down the hill;)

Vicki, I want you to try very hard to take the high road from here on out--enough said. As for Lauri--I have no words. I will give her one thing: she mastered the art of trying to sound innocent & coy while calmly spewing venon. Wow.  She made herself look hideously petty, transparent and simply disgusting. Enjoy your grandchild! : )

Vicki, just saw the show tonight and thought that your comment about you supporting Gretchen even if she cheated on Jeff when he was dying was the ultimate example of what Gretchen has been saying for the past two seasons. You keep saying that she cheated because so many people out there said she did. You then treated the information as if it was the truth. Your dig tonight was so much more of an example of cruelty and heartlessness than Slade's comments could ever be. You and Tammy are the ultimate examples of mean girls. You say vicious things and never take responsibility for them.

VICKIE, I get you and I'm on your side. EXCEPT for you letting your grown daughter rule your life. That is stupid. We all have one life to live. Tell her to go on her way and move out. Kids will get mad at you for the right decisions you make but they always come back around. It doesn't mean you lose them, it's just for that moment that they need to grow the hell up. I'm 51 (and goodlooking I might add, was a model) and have 2 grown sons, been through it. Guess we always will but us mom's have a life now too. Brianna, love you sweetie--don't like Brooks either--but your mom has to make mistakes in a few Mr Wrongs to find Mr Right--give her time Do you think it's fair for her to tell you how to live your wonderful yrs of life now? Come on, you're smarter than that. Don't like her husband either, he's a jerk. I don't care if he's in the military, he's awful.

Vickie, I think you are being attacked on all fronts.  Gretchen is a fool, and why did Laurie come back? They didn't have enough bulls**t on the show? does she need a check?  Hang in there, Vickie, Gretchen and Slade are going to crash and burn!  They all need to grow up and stop the gossiping!

You do, however, need to kick Brooks to the curb!

Vicky, I think that Gretchen is the fire starter....Shes a "big time hater"....she has to have a man to take care of her,she cant do it on her own.  We Love You Vicky!!!!!

I feel so sorry for Vicky's daughter. She is the only one with ANY common sense. She's absolutely right not to want that snake Brooks anywhere near her sweet little baby. Every time I see him I can't believe how stupid and gullible Vicky could be for not seeing what a slime he is. I feel the need to take a shower with full strength bleach whenever he's on. He has all the charisma of a bridge troll.

Vicki - you may have built a very profitable business, but you don't have the common sense of a flea let alone any class.

Im growing tired of Vicky, she needs to go already, i would much rather see Lauri on the show than her. I know a lot of people dont like Lauri, but if they are asking for a new villain all signs point to Lauri. No matter how many times Vicky tries to explain shes in a, "better place" throughout the seasons she still plays the same games has the same attitude and vicious vindictive aggressive motives when things dont go her way. I wanted to like her so much, but her true colors always seem to make appearances and continue to weaken my liking for the show, plus her desperation and utter delusional motives to stay with a man who is clearly a piece of manipulative work just shows how weak of a woman she really is. That may sound a little harsh, but taking how driven she is to sniff out the dirty laundry of Gretchen's relationships AND Slade's indiscretions I find it ironic how she can turn a blind eye to a man who clearly has skeletons lined up and categorized in his closet.

Seriously Vicki grow up. Your reaction to what Lauri said confirmed that everything she said was true. You are so quick to judge everyone else when you really should take a look at how you act and treat people. I used to think you were awesome but this season has been a big disappointment

I think Vicki needs to go, don't like her, never have. Gretchen, Tamra and Heather are my favs. Vickis is a has been, needs to take a few lessons from Heather who is a class act.

OMG you are stupid.  What does that have to do with parenting.  When you watch the show back do it more than once and pay attention to what you say.  Pay more attention to yourself than others and you will understand what we are seeing and why we are saying what we are saying.  If you still don't get it I don't know what to tell you.

Vicki sees' herself as the 'queen' and her head is to big for the crown!  She talks about others and disapproves of what others do but whoa don't say a word against her. She is a temple????? OH MY God!!!!!! Vickie lives in her own lala land!  

 

Tamara needs to get the facts straight.  Gretch said they wanted her to play 'herself' not Heathers part.  What the heck is wrong with these ladies????

I'm watching the July 15th episode and I have never commented on your blog before. I always regarded you as the "housewife with sense", until this season and I can't hold back any longer. Gretchen is right. You are a hypocrite. When the conversation doesn't go YOUR way, you either turn it around to you or you get up and walk out. Hence tonight at the dinner. You have some serious problems and until you resolve the differences with Gretchen and hear them out and take responsibility for your own actions, you will never be able to have them as "friends". Don't you get sick of arguing with Gretchen season after season?

Vicki, I really do like you, your family, and peeking into your life every week. This is NOT an attack, but a gift! You are extremely intelligent, however, you do not know the definition of a hypocrite or ironic. So let me educate you. hy·poc·ri·sy /Noun:The practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform. Versus what you "think" your marginally moral behavior is: i·ron·ic/ Adjective: Happening in the opposite way to what is expected, thus typically causing wry amusement. I know you are a strong and very intelligent lady, but you have been showing your a$$ this season, and you are embarrassing yourself. I am NOT judging your past indiscretions in any way. No one is perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but you are making yourself look really bad, and truthfully becoming very annoying. If we had seen this recent out of control behavior on only 1 episode, it probably would not be an issue, but you KEEP repeating what sounds quite ignorant, and everyone knows you are not ignorant! Relax, breathe, and treat others the way you would like to be treated, even if they don't treat you well. Your behavior and reaction to situations only makes you look bad, and quite honestly, this season your acting a little crazy. As long as you react properly and in line with how you want to be treated, then everyone will defend you, not your "attacker". You will be a better person for it and God will know you did the right thing. We love you but GET A GRIP

Sometimes people think they can write / rewrite their own history.  Unfortunately, when it's "caught on tape" it is harder to refute.  Cut your losses and move on. 

 

Btw--the screechy yelling?  Very unattractive.

 

You used to be my favorite housewife--so carefree and loving life.  I wish you could get back there.  :-]  V

 

P.S.  Do not believe that man, Brooks.  He makes my skin crawl and is a (wo)manipulator.  Trust in thyself and ditch him.

It was very hard to understand Vicki this episode....she kept saying she'd never had multiple partners...yet, she admitted to cheating on Donn?  Technically if you're married and cheating on your husband with another man then YEAH you're sleeping with multiple partners!  I don't care for Vicki for the simple fact that she's extremely (yes I'm gonna use the word!) hypocritical!  Why would you call out Gretchen about a "supposed" affair when you yourself were having one? She's quick to point out other people's flaws and wrong doings but hates when someone gives it right back to her!

Please believe Brooks. He is would never lie to you. He would never cheat on you. He would never do any of the mean horrible things said about him. And by the way - the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are real.

So what if you did have a threesome? I would have just laughed it off. Is having a threesome really THAT big of a deal in 2013? Tamara said that she "brought Lauri back". Hmmm . . . You two weren't getting along very well at the start of the season. Coincidence? Could Tamara be the catalyst behind the entire fiasco? Duh, duh, duh, dunnnnnnnnnnnnn . . . I do think you are getting a little bit of karma. Surely you see the correlation between calling Slade out in front of America, then having Lauri and Grethen try to do the same thing to you. I mean, you made judgment calls on Slade and basically, the same thing is happening to you. I think if you would just admit that the Slade thing and the Brooks thing was a bit hypocritical, because they were both guilty of not providing for their children, then they would leave you alone. I think the fact that you are unwilling to admit that, was pretty much the cause of their trying to humiliate you this season. Maybe you did fess up to those similarities at last years reunion, I don't know. If I'm mistaken then I apologize.

I think you fight more with yourself than anyone else. What you scream out of your mouth, certainly doesn't match the morals and values you say you have. Nor do your actions. You time on tv is beyond over, end this year with whatever grace you have left.

Seems to me Lauri is jealous of your successful business. Lauri married a guy with money. She's angry at the world and Gretchen and her are on the war path to attack Vicki. That's all those two talk about is Vicki. It's annoying!!!

Lauri specifically said to you Vicki that the dress shopping day was not the place or time to discuss Brooks but you continued to prod her for information. Perhaps you should watch the episode again. Get a grip!

 because she lies so much she can't remember what the truth is anymore. Would I buy insurance from her..... Only life insurance against her. So many fans are so done with her. I would make a bazillion dollars. She is not a nice person.

I was asking myself the exact same question.  The footage clearly backed up Lauri's version of the Greek God story yet Vicki sat there and called her a liar.  There have been several other instances where Vicki has been proven to be a liar.  She really is a hypocrite.

 Vicki if you are honest and sincere then get some help, go work out daily, or swim daily in your pool if you have one and I assume you do and spend as much time as you can with your  grandson and make your life better and stop going after men who are losers and will not be good to you.  AMEN.

 Vicki you are one stupid woman big time.  You told me last year in an email how smart a woman you are and you would never allow Brooks to take advantage of you or take money from you.  Well guess what you are not smart.  Why are you in denial?   Stop this and wake up.  Stop dressing like you are 20 for petes sake you are in your 50's and you cannot wear clothes too tight and too short.  Brooks is slime and you need to listen to the entire Bravo viewing audience as well as your own daughter.   WAKE UP you fool.OMG you are fat and you are a mess.  Stop this it is taking a toll on you.

 @gillijo I do feel Lauri was wrong coming back on the show and talking to Gretchen about Vicki.

She should have went to Vicki a long time ago and told her how she felt.

Believe me I am not siding with Vicki she is not innocent when it comes to gossip.

The more Vicki yells and screams about the topic the more it seems that she is guilty.

Learn how to walk away and leave it at that. It seems like she is afraid to confront Lauri and get it out in the open.

As for Brooks Vicki will always defend him no matter what he says. She believed him before she believed Tamra last season about the stupid evil eye thing. Ridiculous!

Vicki got what she wanted this season Tamra doubting Gretchen's honesty and now Vicki is a happy person. So sad.

@thinkitsalltofunny Please tell us what you really feel! Vicki is the glue to this show, she's been here the longest and pretty much stands her ground. I'm sorry she got mixed up with Brooks, what a weird name. Vicki has been through a lot in the last eight years, but she's still Vicki. Don't be so condescending, she knows what she's doing!

 OMG you are so right.   I said the same thing yesterday to someone else.  She has always caused issues with people and she has a big mouth and no control of herself.  She is a control freak and seems to want to be in control of the young, prettier women on the show.I just get a sick feeling is going to run back to that slime Brooks.   He only wanted her for her money and support.  Once she is gone and he is not on the show anymore he has to find a job to pay child support and who knows how many other kids he has out there in the USA.

You don't give a guy teeth and other things.  You tell him to get a JOB and the come a calling.
