It appears that things are going really good now for ladies of Orange County. The Real Housewives of Orange County star, Vicki Gunvalson, is finally settling her vodka lawsuit after a nasty six-year long court battle. It seems like the situation is going to get better now. As Vicki would say, “Woohoo!” The RHOC OG is in the process of settling now, with her ex-business partner, Robert Williamson over ‘Vicki’s Vodka.’ He had claimed that Vicki was not promoting the product. The RHOC stars seem to go through a lot of drama. However; when life gives you lemons – you make lemonade and limoncello.
According to Radar Online, “Back in June 2013, Robert Williamson III filed a lawsuit against Gunvalson for fraud, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith dealings, misrepresentation and unjustly enriching herself, and intentionally inflicting emotional distress on him.” According to court documents from the United States District Court of Nevada, they both reached settlement terms this spring.
They have both agreed to attend a conference for the dismissal of the claims. It’s scheduled to take place on August 20, 2018. His Chapter 13 Trustee and the Bankruptcy Court in the District of Arizona must approve the settlement.
He had declared Chapter 13 bankruptcy in January 2016. According to the documents, he is not responsible to pay back all of his debts during the proceedings. Vicki will be an exception because she filed documents asking for her civil lawsuit to be unfrozen so she can continue to fight for her money. Back in 2015, a federal judge dismissed the lawsuit and ordered him to pay Vicki’s ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, $132,641 in legal fees. He transferred the rights of the judgment to Vicki. She was never awarded the judgment. Then he filed for bankruptcy, claiming he had only $806,000 in assets. Vicki accused him of lying. Now they are going to figure out their settlement at the end of summer.
I’m glad that Vicki is finally settling all of this! It sounds like a stressful situation, that is exhausting and time-consuming. The Real Housewives seem to have to go through lots of lawsuits. Yikes! On the bright side, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Once this mess is all cleaned up, Vicki can celebrate and yell her, “Woohoo!”
