Andy Cohen attempted to squash the beef between Ashley Darby and Vicki Gunvalson during his Watch What Happens Live Legends Ball at BravoCon 2022, but he may have inadvertently caused even more of a beef in the process.
The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member and the OG of the OC were at odds after Ashley recently labeled Vicki the “rudest” Bravolebrity she’s ever met, citing an interview they did together during which Vicki was apparently “dismissive” of Ashley.
So Vicki explained her side of the story at Andy’s Legends Ball. “I was told I was going to do an interview with a Housewife, and when I walked in the interview room, I had never met Ashley,” she explained. “I didn’t know what show she was on, and I was kind of like, ‘Well, where’s the Housewife?’ So there we go, that was it.”
Ashley wasn’t having it. “This is case in point why this is a problem, Vicki,” she said. “You were very dismissive for no apparent reason. We were both there for the same purpose, OK? Obviously I’m a Housewife if the panel was called Housewife to Housewife!”
The two went back and forth for a bit, but once Andy pointed out that Vicki did seem to have been “a little rude,” she apologized.
Then The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore entered the conversation, telling the audience that she had a Vicki story to share as well. “The first time I ever met Vicki,” Kenya began, recalling a time when she was with Melissa Gorga and Jill Zarin, “[she] told us that none of us would be there if it were not for her.”
Vicki’s response? “It’s the truth.”
Kenya responded by insisting that the Housewives are a sisterhood and they should all treat it as such. “No one of us is more important than the other, OK?” she added. “We’re on the same platform, so Vicki, check yourself before you wreck yourself.”
“I never said I was more important, I said the facts,” Vicki replied. “If our show wasn’t successful Season 1, 2, 3, it probably wouldn’t have gotten the franchises.”
Things settled down at that point — until Teresa Giudice asked for a mic and turned to Vicki, saying, “I heard you got interviewed today. Did you say something, like, negative about me?”
In short, yes. “I said you are very nice, we don’t know each other very much, but the question to me was ‘Who’s the most overrated?’” Vicki told The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member. “I just was in a place of, I like Teresa, I’m happy for her… I did say complimentary things, did you hear that too? Or are you just hearing what I said?”
At that point, Andy had seen enough. “Here’s the deal, we are not going to squash the beef,” he said, “but we got an apology and we hope for the best.”
