Welcome to the OC!
The Real Housewives of Orange County are the original Real Housewives and they always bring the drama and entertainment. Vicki Gunvalson, OG of the OC, was not friends with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador for awhile. They had been fighting for a few years. Tamra and Shannon had both declared that they would never be friends with Vicki ever again. However; sometimes saying you’re sorry and truly meaning it – can go a long way. You never know what will happen next in Orange County when it comes to the Real Housewives. Vicki was crying at the RHOC reunion and apologized to them. This led to the threesome reconnecting. Now they are rebuilding their friendships!
According to ET, Vicki explained that she had been praying a lot – which led to this reconnection. Vicki said, “You know, I prayed a lot about it. I just really felt, if that’s what’s coming up, that’s what’s coming up. But, I didn’t want it to end that way, because it wasn’t kind, it wasn’t nice. So, I just really did my very best to be as authentic as I could be, and just be very apologetic for where I messed up, and it worked.”
After Vicki learned that Shannon was getting a divorce from her husband after 17 years, it struck a cord for her. Shannon knew that Vicki was being authentic and genuine. Shannon explained, “With Vicki, I saw true emotion come from her when she heard that David and I had separated. We shed tears and so, that was touching for me.” She also added that since she isn’t with David anymore, it helped to make reconciling easier. This is because she had been upset about some things that were said about her soon to be ex-husband.
Vicki said, “I think my compassion for the damage that I did to them, and I they did to me, it all kind of dissipated. When I heard that Shannon was getting a divorce, I was literally shocked. I had no idea, I didn’t talk to her much before that reunion, and I just couldn’t believe it. So, my tears were real. I just felt so bad for them, their family.”
This was the turning point for Vicki and it hit home. She shared, “I was like, I have got to be friends with these ladies. They’re my friends and I miss them. It was just that moment, I felt that, all the ice just broke.” Vicki didn’t know if she would even return for the following season, if they didn’t all kiss and make up. Since she’s been on since season one, it would definitely be weird without her on the RHOC.
Friends are always there for one another, during the good times and sad times. It seems like Vicki, Tamra and Shannon are in a great place once again. Sometimes you just need your girlfriends to lean on for support. That’s what friendship is all about! I’m glad that these three are rebuilding their friendships and I can’t wait to watch their next adventures on the RHOC!
