#RHOC Star Vicki Gunvalson Dishes On Her Relationship With Tamra Judge: ”We Are Not in a Good Place”

Posted on Oct 11 2017 - 8:34am by Avigail

Vicki Gunvalson is addressing the current state of her contentious relationship with Real Housewives of Orange County co-star, Tamra Judge.

“For me it’s easier to learn from our mistakes.” The insurance mogul tells E!News. “I’ll learn from mine, I want the same for her and then I want to be able to move on. I don’t want to talk about it anymore.”

During Monday night’s episode, the former friends met to try and restore their broken friendship, but things did no go well with Tamra storming out of the meeting. Their one-on-one was filmed earlier this year and since then not much has changed.

According to the 55-year-old, the two are “not in a good place.” But she’s optimistic they can mend fences because “the truth of the matter is, we’re both good people and we both got hurt.”

On a brighter note, Gunvalson’s love life is thriving and while marriage is on the brain — the grandmother of two is not rushing to the alter.

“My goal one day is to be a wife again,” said the mother of two. “I love being married, I do.”

“When the time is right we’ll talk about it. If the time isn’t right, then no,” she added. “We’ve only been together a year and a half, we both have some divorces under our belt and we want to be sure it’s forever.”

On her daughter Briana Culberson’s ongoing struggles with Lupus, which she has underwent chemotherapy for.

“She suffers with it. It’s really a tough disease. It affects her heart, it affects everything,” said Gunvalson. “She’s a trooper though, she’s a strong girl.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights, on Bravo.

    If you notice, Vicki always says that she doesn’t want to talk about it, just move on. That’s because she refuses to admit she was wrong & apologize. Her biggest fault is the inability to admit her mistakes. If she would just “own it” & give a sincere apology, the other ladies would forgive & move on. Instead she tries to “punish” them by spreading gossip & lies. That is a vengeful person & not someone you want as a friend. Tamra did the right thing & walked away, for good I hope. Truth be told, Vicki only wanted to make up because she is now on the outside of the group & knows that her days on the show are numbered. I have not liked Vicki from season one & IMO the show would be better without her. I pray that the producers see that as well. Adios Vicki!

      Great recap, Christy, couldn’t agree more.

  • we”r”family

    Correct me if I am wrong, but, didn’t Vicki say this season, she was going to make them pay for not being her friends? Vicki is running out of folks to film with. I also don’t they even think of each other when the show isn’t filming.
    I don’t care for either one at all. But, the show is tanking even more so this season. Pull the plug.

    • MissScarletwithaRevolver

      Right? They had to bring thirsty Gretchen back because no one else will film with her. Come on Bravo- does Vicki have some kind of dirt on Andy or something? And Gina? Vicki has trashed both of them and all of a sudden they are friends again?

      • we”r”family

        Not to mention Tamra’s ex friend showing up at the birthday party.

        • TartLemon

          Vicki lied about inviting him, too. The guy recently publicized the text exchange. Vicki has never acknowledged it.

          • ScrappieONE

            Why these people continue to lie about their actions when there is proof via text or sm is beyond me.

  • TartLemon

    Vicki refuses to acknowledge what anything said/done. It’s not only the other ladies of the OC Vicki owes and apology to, but US the viewers as well. Now, Vicki, scurry away you scummy POS.

    • we”r”family

      Vicki thinks this Shady Steve fills her love tank. An insurance mogul? I wouldn’t trust anything that important to the likes of Vicki. She never owns anything but deflects. Even when she is caught in lies.

  • Trippinhhard

    Well until Vicki take responsibility for the lie she and Crooks cooked up for a storyline no one will believe her.. How can you accept responsibility when you want knowledge you were lying for a whole season.. You were so desperate you want empathy, sympathy and compassion from your cast mates.. To top that off you also wanted a fricking casserole from them.. The thingee that disgusting is people suffer and die from cancer.. I gave it twice and my ex husband had it. I knew you were lying when you didn’t stay for none if his treatments.. The way you like to control everything and you knew you were lying for a year is horrible.. Accept and acknowledge that you lied and then ask for forgiveness… Until you can do that, you’re a peace of shit.. Then you spread gossip about the other women to Kelly before she was able to form her own opinion, regarding the ladies.. Oh and that face lift you got several season ago is horrible, you use to look good but now you look like a puffy face pig..

    • K’man

      You’re 100 percent correct!! The next step is she needs to be fired for what she has caused/lied about (cancer, lies about Eddie, stuff we don’t see on camera.) in her mind, she thinks she can be like Ramona say I’m sorry and we are best friends again, I’m glad Tamra has finally open her eyes and is not willing to her get away with anything. I’ve always thought of their relationship to be very toxic. It seems like it’s an abusive relationship, one person (Vicki) keeps hurting the other (Tamra) and is expected for them to come back.

      • Trippinhhard

        Thank you —– it’s really sad when a grown woman won’t sincerely apologize for lying to everyone.. Put your big girl panties on and take heat for lying and then y’all can move on.. Regardless of what Tamara is to you, you bring up gossip about her husband, and then you spread it around to others.. Then you tell her maybe he wanted a gym, girl please he could work at any gym and make more than he’s making now.. Vicki is very ignorant to other people feelings..Ugh

      • Chickpea16

        Remember when Vicki and Simon got into it because Simon was mad she was interfering in his marriage and Vicki got mad at Tamra for not backing her! Tamra says he’s my husband. This is one reason Tamra has had it with Vicki. Vicki can’t stand seeing anyone happily married.

  • pixntrix

    They are both toxic and belong together.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Shannon and Tamra get deserved snarks and knocks on blogs for many things but they, both, deserve praise for not publicly discussing Icky’s new boyfriend, Steve’s questionable past.
    Icky went after their loved ones but these two have been examples of self-control regarding Steve Lodge. “Kudos!” to them.

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      I’m sure it’s coming.

    • Chickpea16

      Good point.

    • GirlPlz

      They should go after him too lol
      Next season

      • MidwestMiddie

        LOL

  • Lulu

    Vicki why are you always screeching that the women are painting you as a con artist and a liar?? How idiotic do you think the viewers are??

    There is footage of you in the reunion admitting that you LIED AND on one episode you were saying that you’re so innocent when they replayed footage of you lying.

    This is why the women have rejected you. Instead of soul-searching and wholeheartedly admitting your shite you deflect and say ” they’re gonna pay”

    I honestly feel sorry that you are too egotistical, dumb and NON self-aware to see this 💩

    • MissScarletwithaRevolver

      Liars lie so often they forget who they lied to and what they said. Vicki should have learned a long time ago that a film crew following her around would be her undoing. If anyone buys insurance from her or allows her within a mile of their finances they are out of their mind. She is a proven grifter.

      • Lulu

        👍🏻👍🏻

    • Jennymckitty

      I have to wonder what….if anything….runs through Vicki’s mind when she watches those flashbacks and sees herself get caught in lies.

    • Champagne Hangover

      ^^^^^THIS

    • GirlPlz

      I think she’s a psychopath

      They should fire her. She’s finished and she’s aware of it. She knows the viewers have turned on her. She can’t deal with it. In her head, she thinks it’s her show

  • RealitytvJunkie

    I don’t know why Vicki cares to be friends with an evil whore like Tamra. Tamra is a friend to no one.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Hey, nice to see you even though we WILL NOT be on the same page. : )

  • TartLemon

    WHAT did Tamra do to hurt Vicki?

    • Trippinhhard

      Hey Tart –Crooks and Vicki tried to use Tamara to be on their team, with those papers.. They thought Tamara was that dumb to fall for that BS.. Tamara did remember the company name in the paperwork and there came Megan and Shannon finding out the truth.. oh and what happen to that so called file Vicki was keeping all of Crooks
      Paperwork in.. The file was always empty. Did anyone else notice that Vicki was always sad with Crooks, but said she’s never been that happy.. He did get some new teeth courtesy for doing it on TV.. Crooks is good to stay in sales, because he’s the type of salesman I dislike to the core..

    • Jennymckitty

      Tamara repeatedly…and correctly….pointed out what a user and a con artist Brooks was. Then she didn’t buy Vicki’s BS story about her not knowing throughout the entire season that Brooks was faking cancer. I think Vicki took that as a betrayal.

      • Amanda

        She most definitely took that as betrayal, and if she didn’t care for Brookes anymore all she had to do was take ownership of the lie. Same with shannon, Vick lost a lot because she wanted to protect Brooks, then herself and all she is doing is digging a bigger hole. The charade is over it’s time to start admitting faults.

      • GirlPlz

        lmao at correctly

  • JustSayin

    Vicki: We are not in a good place – really? I couldn’t tell, what with you bringing on some ex-friend/fameho to make accusations about Eddie being gay…you mean that’s not a sign of a deep and abiding friendship? lol

    • TartLemon

      Vicki also said she would make them (Tamra, Shannon) pay for not being her friend anymore.

      Sounds like a solid avenue to repair a friendship to me. /snark

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Vicki is making the rounds, she did a surprise walk-on to Wendy Williams on Monday. It was an extraordinarily cringe-worthy appearance of dip shit Wendy asking Vicki how her real estate business is doing, and referring to Tamra as TamARA. Ugh~

  • Amanda

    Who cares. Seriously. They are both deplorable,they are better as a team vs enemies. Mommy dearest is on top right now just cause she isn’t talking about Vicki currently, and Vicki can’t shut her trap for nothing. Lick the spoon, Vicks cause you are constantly stirring the sh!t pot. Most people don’t like either of you so save the stupid back and forth and for the love of god, grow up.

    • Champagne Hangover

      ^^^^This all DAY! Preach, my sister! TESTIFY! Can I get an Amen from the choir? I say, CAN I GET AN AMEN FROM THE CHOIR? Praise our sister Amanda for speaking God’s truth! 😜

  • GirlPlz

    Shut up, Victim

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    Why is this woman so damn needy?!? Trashy wants Vicki to kiss her ass. W

  • GirlPlz

    She may a paid surprise visit to Wendy on her sympathy rehab image tour

    • TartLemon

      What was asked by Wendy and what did Vicki reply?

      • GirlPlz

        It was so stupid. I would suggest watching the clip to see how it bad it was. It was towards the end of yesterday’s hot topics segment. It’s on Wendy’s YouTube page.

        Despite not knowing anything about Vicki, Wendy calls Vicki her “best friend.. in her mind”. She doesn’t watch RHOC, she doesn’t pronounce Vicki’s surname properly, she doesn’t know Vicki’s occupation, she calls Tamra “Tamara”. It was just all sorts of wrong. Victim playing her favorite role again

  • Brandexpert

    I watched the Wendy Williams clip, which was quite pathetic. Most importantly, WHAT was Vicki wearing?? By now she should own a mirror!
