Let's Discuss: Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC Shannon Beador Tamra Judge Vicki Gunvalson

AllAboutTRH Poll: Vicki Gunvalson Reconciles With RHOC Co-Stars After Bitter Feud But Will It Last?

Real Housewives of Orange County fans were shocked when Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador reconciled at the season 12 reunion.

After several years of bitter back and forth feuding the OC ladies appeared to make amends and put the past behind them.

“I’m sorry. I never meant to hurt either one of your families,” Vicki told both Tamra and Shannon.

Vicki found herself in hot water with her former friends after alleging Shannon was physically abused by her husband David and repeating rumors about Tamra’s husband Eddie’s sexuality.

“I won’t talk about it ever again, as God as my witness. I promise you. I’m sorry. I totally surrender,” Vicki explained. “I love you, I really do, and I’m sorry I hurt you. I don’t want to hurt you, and I don’t want to hurt anymore.”

Following her embrace with Tamra, Vicki extended an olive branch to Shannon.

“Shannon, I want to hug you too because I’m sorry,” Vicki said. “I really am sorry. I’ve asked for forgiveness, and I’m sorry. I feel for you. I do, I’ve literally been through it twice. It sucks. We gotta build each other up not tear each other down. We all are good people.”

As for Vicki, she begged Tamra to stop bringing up her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers; admitting that she “got conned” by her former love.

“I didn’t want [Vicki] to get hurt again. And at the end of the day, instead of coming to me and saying, ‘You’re so right, I’m so sorry …’ I didn’t get that.’” Tamra explained.

Tamra also promised to “never say another word.”

And there you have a kumbaya moment straight out the OC.

While I’ve heard rumblings that Tamra, Shannon, and Vicki are still on “good” terms, I’m waiting to hear back from a few sources for official confirmation.

So, my question to you all is, Will Shannon, Vicki, and Tamra’s reconciliation last?  Take our AllAboutTRH poll below and let us what you think!

  • Vicki still cannot admit that she, herself, is a con artist, albeit not a very good one. Had this all actually been all Brooks’ idea and had he been conning Vicki too, there would have been no need to take Brooks to a fake doctor, on film, or to do all the ads and testimonials for Club Detox. Also, Brooks had nothing to do with #killallcancer. Vicki needs to admit that SHE was trying to make a dollar off the backs of cancer victims.

    • BINGO!!!! The main reason to realize that VG was the architect of the worst SL / scam; is she was the one to profit from it, not Brokes. It was HER story line & HER business venture (as a partner-spokesperson for clubDetox). He already got what he wanted: free lodging, free food & drinks, free car, free vacations & entertainment. If the plan should go awry, as it did, HE had everything to lose, which he did by taking the fall for that con woman. In effect, the sleazy, grifting conman, Brokes got conned by Shrieki, the scammer!!!! LOL

  • No one believes this bullshit with the exception of the POS cancer scammer. That’s how delusional she is. Could VG not see the expression on Shannon’s face as she was trying to pull her into the awkward hug??? Shannon would have rather been water boarded than have to get up and give the con woman a hug and express hollow cheap sentiments. Pan to VG and she’s beaming like she was a newly wedded bride. She is now under the impression she’s back to HBIC and has her groupies/minions at her side. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ea4010f7c1a8c1c64304d73fcdf45e09d1545d8c6029b9baedd3146a3bb30522.gif

  • I know they all did this because the season sucked and they’re trying to make next season better. However, this whole thing turns me off. Such a total fake make up. Within minutes (or maybe hours depending on editing) they go from absolute hatred to making up. BS.

    I wish Tamra and Shannon would stick to their principles and not make up with Vicki. Vicki didn’t bring up the Eddie thing once. She brought it up repeatedly. She was doing interviews not long ago implying all kinds of things. And all that is on top of her cancer scam (which she was a part of). And on top of her spewing hate about David beating Shannon. Without a doubt, that was the final nail in the coffin of the Beador marriage. Not a bad thing the marriage is ending, but Vicki’s nastiness played a role.

    I’ve never liked Vicki. I find her whoop it up crap ridiculous. So, if we have them all whooping it up again next season, I’ll be annoyed and not very interested.

    C’mon Tamra and Shannon, you know the apology is an insincere Hail Mary to save her job. Brianna moved away. Michael doesn’t like to film. And for how long can she pay Steve to act like her boyfriend?

    • swizzle – I completely agree with you!!! Tamra & Shannon really disappointed by caving in to Shrieki’s phony apology. They’ll regret keeping the stupid sow on the show.

    • Shannon’s marriage was over before she came on the show. The rumors about Eddie started before he came on the show. Shannon and Tamra are the one’s who talked about the rumors about their husbands non stop.

      • Did you see any of the interviews Vicki did during the season? She was relentless in hinting that Eddie was gay and that she was OK with it. Why? And why did she feel it was her place to insert herself in Shannon’s marriage? She also literally said at the beginning of the season that she was going to make them pay for not being her friend.

        • Not only her talking heads but she made a couple of videos, I don’t remember the vehicle, IG, youtube saying Eddie was definitely gay and he NEEDED to come out or else kind of thing. So ridiculous and to me. looked overly obsessively creepy. If I was Tamra, I would have seriously entertained sending Pigface Gunvalson a Cease and Desist order to shut her the phuck up!
          https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/81c74dfe225ef422b8a1225ee7b71811f40b373e5d2cc3085b522dc3f0d840d4.gif

          • I think the main reason Shrieki made those comments, was for attention. She doesn’t really give a rat’s ass about Eddie or his personal life. She just wanted to be noticed & validated for her “opinion” because on the show, she was correctly placed in the dunce chair for 2 seasons.

                • I think she was so mad at Tamra and wanted to teach her a lesson . She’s vindictive. She can mostly only keep friends if they’re morons or through fear ??. I’m just guessing of course , nobody knows what’s going on in her swine brain ???

                  • You’re right. Shrieki uses intimidation (or bribery) in all of her relationships. I wonder how anyone in the real world stomachs her? I can’t recall if she even has any off camera friends. At her parties, her guests are only cast mates & family members.

                    • Spot on! She doesn’t have ‘real life ‘ friends , at least as far as I know either . But she’s a vindictive pig!! Look what she did to Shannon and David ??

  • Shrieki’s mea culpa came in just under the wire of the last moment of the reunion. She knew she had no real alliances that mattered. It was either eat crow & beg forgiveness or be set back into “FOH” mode. However, since the LYING LIAR Face, Vickileaks Gonefullofsh*t’s word is worthless, the truce won’t hold for very long. BTW: Shrieki has to stop pushing the false premise that she is a “good person”. She has proven to be far from that depiction. From S1 going forward, Shrieki has bullied everyone else on the show, including bit players, like car service representatives. She still doesn’t take accountability for the cancer scam, that she crafted to sell fake cancer juice to her gullible fans. Until she admits that fact, she’ll remain a sleazy scam artist of no value.

  • Ok, so I’m just going to throw this out there, bcuz this is my opinion. I think Vicki was not in on the cancer debacle INITIALLY. I think at some point she realized Brooks was lying or questioned the credibility of what he was saying. However, she’s so desperate to be loved she either pushed it deep down inside or just continued to go along with it, bcuz she was too embarrassed to question him or admit that something was wrong. I honestly feel Vicki was blinded by love and when you’re in love, no one can tell you anything about that person. You have to see things for yourself.
    Also, we know Crooks was emotionally abusive. How come no one takes that into account? I was in an emotionally abusive relationship for years and I had so much fear of upsetting my partner, I literally became a different person. Walking on eggshells, trying not to disrupt him so he wouldn’t become upset with me…
    With that being said, Vicki has apologized for this over and over AND OVER. Tamra, Megan, Shannon simply did not get they apology they felt they were owed or fit to their liking.
    “I didn’t want [Vicki] to get hurt again. And at the end of the day, instead of coming to me and saying, ‘You’re so right, I’m so sorry …’ that’s such an asshole way of expecting an apology. All Tamra truly wanted was for Vicki to praise her and tell her OMG Tamra you were soooo right, I’m so dumb I should’ve listened to you. I never expect that kind of apology from my friends. Tamra is just as cunty as Vicki and imo they both have done equally as bad things over the years that led up to the demise of their friendship.

    • I see what you’re saying – it was quite obvious she was very afraid of losing Crooks since she almost severed ties with Brianna and despite him cheating, would beg him to come back. But she made the choice to lie and was still defending him after they broke up – still basically says she still has feelings for him and would most likely get back together with him if she has the chance.
      Then…. she continued with her antics with the whole Eddie is gay crap and threatening to spill secrets of her former friends. And she would be downright evil towards the new girls (except Peggy) and loved judging and making assanine remarks to HW’s for not working or their marriage not lasting.
      So yeah, she pretty much has burned enough bridges…
      And yes I agree Tamra isn’t a great friend either. I am waiting for her to betray Shannon once her and Vile get back to BFF status, because Tamra uses, abuses and turns on everyone.
      Tamra and Vile engage in vicious cycles and refuse to break them.

      • I understand all those other instances, and I do not defend nor back her on any of that. My point is solely in reference to cancergate/apology situation. I honestly don’t think any of the women were a good friend to her thru that.
        Women don’t change THAT much as we get older when it comes to love. Sure we may get a little wiser but some do not.
        It’s just like when you tell your teenage daughter who is in love with a bad boy, he’s not good for you, I don’t like him so on so forth, what does that usually do…drives the girl right to the guy. I feel like instead of Tamra shrieking and screaming what about me? And I don’t like him, over and over to Vicki, she should’ve just been there for her. The fake Brooks concern Tamra had wasn’t truly about Vicki in my opinion, it was about Tamra. Tamra being able to say I told you so, and it was about Vicki choosing her relationship over Tamra. Tamra Tamra Tamra, is all it’s about!

        • I think Tamra really did not like that Vicki was all up in her relationship with Simon so she paid her back by doing the same thing when it came to Brooks.

    • Me too. I think she was not in it either. I think when she realize he may be lying , it was too late. Also, I do think Brooks was sick,but of course not cancer. Vicki and Tamra need to get fired from the show. They have no storylines.

    • I know I’m new here (and I read the comments regularly), but I have to agree with Vita40 on everything, and add my own twist.

      One thing most people forget is that it was in the very beginning of season 10 that Vicki lost her mother. As a daughter who has been through this, you have absolutely no idea how much the depression and grief can grip a person and warp their minds!!

      Before my mother died, I was in what I thought was a happy relationship. She even left me a message talking about how happy I seemed with my ex. She died a week later. While I knew the relationship was doomed for a long time, I felt a weird sense of responsibility to keep it going. In my grief-stricken mind, I believed I had to keep it going because it was a reason she felt she could let go. That is the same thing with Vicki. Her mother had her concerns but she ultimately gave her blessing because she saw how happy Vicki seemed.

      As for the “cancer juice,” I am working hard towards becoming a registered dietician and the message was completely botched. Just hear me out…

      Everyone knows that a healthy diet can prevent so many chronic illnesses and new research is showing that cancer can be one of them! Since we all need to eat, why not use food as our primary source of medicine. One quick example. Cruciferous veggies like broccoli, spinach, kale and cauliflower have an antioxidant known as glutathione. This antioxidant contains sulfur, which works like fly paper to remove toxins (food additives and preservatives our bodies cannot use). Once these toxins are removed, our bodies are better-equipped to absorb other nutrients from whole foods that help our bodies heal.

      The whole foods movement is not about saying that modern medicine is bad, we just need to be aware of WHO is behind these “miracle” chemotherapy drugs, pharmaceutical companies, that need to make profits. They don’t want people to be healthy because then they won’t make money. If we can use food to fight disease, we should!

  • That is laughable!! Icky will always be the disgusting pile of garbage she is ! Did she have the nerve to tell Shannon ‘ we are all good people ‘?? Oh my!! You are NOT good people Vicki!! Till you fess you and own your shit, you have no chance in hell

  • Vile was in begging position for her next season contract! the second she signs the contract
    BOOM

    innuendo/rumors/back stabbing will resume for her.

    • I agree. If she hasn’t learned her lesson by now, she never will. She is too into her “OG” status to realize if she f*cks up again, there is no one left to film with. She will literally have NO ONE…

      • She doesn’t even consider being compasionate any more, I liked her pre- cancer scam.

        She was 100% there for Tams during the Simon/Tams explosions and divorce. I think fear of being let go of – she started being the bully and scammer..weird choice to make.

      • Good morning Medusa

        She needs to have something to entice her to change..and so far cancer scamming works for her and Ass Andy just gave her free reign to assault anyone about their sexual orientation.

        • Good Wednesday Morning, to you samael!!!
          “Ass Andy” – that’s the perfect depiction. He definitely gives that stupid sow free reign to do her worst. And she will. He likes the women who put forth the most outrageous, despicable behavior. Although he seems to love his mother, he seems to hate women, by selecting the biggest bullies & LIARS to fill the hw franchises.

          • Good Wednesday Medusa!

            Ass Andy is a pimp and all (including my favs) RH are famewhores.

            The unfortunate situation is – we the viewers presume to think Ass Andy would apply common sense or hold any RH accountable. Pimps will do everything that makes his bank account chubbier.

            But, RH – absolute guilty pleasure for me!
