The OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson was once known for “hazing” the RHOC newbies and making them earn their spot on the show. However Shannon Beador changed that trend, and Vicki’s season 12 clique is a bit surprising; Kelly Dodd, Lydia McLaughlin, and newbie Peggy Sulihain. Kelly and Lydia only have appeared on one season each, but they can hold their own and even do some of Vicki’s dirty work!
Vicki was clearly in a good mood when she wrote this week’s Bravo Blog, because she gushed over Peggy and Diko multiple times, and teased a strong friendship forming there. Not only that, but she didn’t even mention Shannon and her constant talk about her weight; even her friend Tamra has been commenting on it. Finally, Vicki disregarded any Bravo drama with Tamra and showed public support in the fight to get Sidney back; maybe there is hope that they reconcile after all!
This week I met Peggy and Diko. They were so sweet and so kind that I had an immediate connection to them both. I’m really glad that Lydia invited them to Stirling’s birthday party as she had talked so highly of them before. When Peggy told me of the recent passing of her father, it brought me back to how I felt when I heard my mother unexpectedly passed as well. Those of you that have lost one or both parents, you know how it feels with the constant numbing heartache. She has been through a lot lately and I wanted her to know I would be there for her if she needed me.
I agree with Kelly when she said Tamra interferes with friendships and called her “Teflon Tamra.” Leave it to Kelly to come up with a word like that. I couldn’t have said it any better.
It was sad for me to watch the struggle that Tamra has been having with her daughter Sidney. I know how much she loves her and misses her and hopefully Sidney sees the sadness it has caused and will come around. It was also sad for me to hear the legacy of divorces in her family and how it affected each and every one of them in a unique way. I wish and pray for peace and forgiveness for both of them so they can move on.
Kelly and I have really gotten to be great friends during this past year, and when she asked me to go to her doctor’s office to get her “hoo-ha rejuvenated” I wanted to be there for her. I have never heard of this procedure, but with the new technology nowadays in everything, I’m sure it will be good. There is a first for everything when it comes to being friends.
I was glad to have been invited to Diko and Peggy’s house and was so impressed at all the expensive cars he collects. I respect the business Diko has built and the love he has for his wife and family. I really enjoy them and look forward to getting to know them better.
Hope you are enjoying the season so far. Stay tuned – it’s going to get bumpy. Don’t forget to check out my website www.vickigunvalson.com for my new LA Splash lipstick line and for information on a free quote of life insurance, visit www.cotofinancial.com.
