Vicki Gunvalson was so unpopular last season that many fans were demanding that she leave. This season she hasn’t had the strongest storyline and many viewers are wondering if Bravo is trying to cut down her scenes in order to focus on more popular ‘wives. Even her birthday bash at the Merv Griffin estate wasn’t exactly thrilling to watch and you know she spent some serious cash trying to make her birthday celebration interesting.

Despite her being on the outs with almost all of the housewives, Vicki can find comfort knowing that at least one OC alum has her back. Who is it you may ask? None other than former nemesis Gretchen Rossi!

Speaking with People Magazine Gretchen stated she felt for Vicki as she knew what it’s like to be the ‘odd man out’ and have everyone turn on your man. Per Gretchen:

“It’s interesting to see how time away from people kind of helps heal wounds and helps change things.”

“It was interesting because at the end of last season for [Vicki] when all the women turned against her and were just so vicious and so ugly to her, my heart went out to her. I think it was because it happened to me in my final season 8 where all the women just completely turned on me and just were so vicious and so mean and it was just on a level that was kind of unnecessary.”

“I knew what it was like to love a man and have women coming and attacking me just because you simply loved a man. I reached out to her and we started talking. I just said, ‘Listen, I understand. I’m here for you.’ “

“We made up and she apologized for a lot of things that she had said about me and Slade and done to me.”

“I think that in life, that happens a lot. Sometimes it takes you having to go through something yourself for you to really have perspective and in hindsight, be kind of looking backing and going, ‘Wow, I wish that I hadn’t treated that person that way,’ “

Listen I’m sure Gretchen could relate to Vicki so I’m not taking that away from her, but why did she need to speak out to People Magazine on this? I’m suspecting that she and Slade are dying to get back on the OC so why not create a little press and get chummy with the OG? I know that’s being a bit cynical but when it comes to Slade and Gretchen you know everything is calculated.

What do you think of Gretchen’s interview?
