Vicki Gunvalson’s reconciliation with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador left most Real Housewives of Orange County fans with their jaws on the floor and the need to know just how real their make up was.
For now, the reconciliation seems real, well as real as something can be in Orange County, and Vicki says she’s happy to have peace.
“It was so nice to make up, it’s so good,” Vicki told Us Weekly. “It’s the holidays and it’s gotten us busy and we’re never going to be the same as we were before, but we are definitely in a better place, a great place. I don’t want to go backwards anymore. They hurt me, I hurt them and nobody benefitted. We just have to move on now.”
In fact, Vicki says that if she could do things differently in regards to her friendships with Tamra and Shannon she says she wouldn’t have dated her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers.
“Well I wouldn’t have dated my ex, that would have been a great step to take back then!” Vicki explained. “That was really a main reason why we were fighting. That was five years. That was an interesting revelation to me that I was sadly, 100 percent trusting of someone and learned from that. Everyone moves on. He’s in a better place. I’m in a better place. I’m glad he’s happy, but I guess we all have to date a bad boy once in our life, right?”
Adding, “At least I didn’t marry him!”
Meanwhile, Vicki says the two friendships she doesn’t have to worry about are with Lydia McLaughlin and Peggy Sulahian. Interesting that Kelly Dodd was left OFF that list.
“It’s good, they’re easy friends. I never have to worry about backstabbing or conflict and they’re good people,” Vicki revealed. “I don’t have to worry about what I say will come back around bite me in the butt. I’m keeping my friend circle very small right now.”
“I would say yes. My life isn’t over yet. I’m having fun!” Vicki wrapped.
I wonder what’s up with Vicki and Kelly’s friendship. It’s very odd she left Kelly out of her comments about friendships she’s not worried about. Could there be trouble in paradise? Sounds like it.
Thoughts on Vicki’s interview? Will Vicki’s reconciliation with Tamra and Shannon last? Is it strange Vicki left Kelly out on the list friendships she’s not worried about? Do you think Vicki will be asked back for season 13?
