The OG of the OC Miss Vicki Gunvalson steps Behind The Rope. First Vicki fills us all in on what she has been up to since we last saw her on our TV screens. For those of you who don’t know, she bought a house in Mexico, had a stellar Whoop It Up Podcast (which BTVR appeared on), has been running Coto Insurance, and has just been enjoying time with her family (Steve, Michael, Brianna, Ryan & The Boys). Vicki and David discuss the trajectory of being a Housewife - the beginning (so hopeful), the middle (save your $), the inevitable end (Cue The Five Stages of grief). We discuss the concept of resigning and quitting versus being fired and let go. Vicki lets us know what advice she would give, not only to Season One Vicki, but other Housewives starting out and what she has learned throughout the years during her tenure on the hit Bravo show. Speaking of the beginning, Vicki and David discuss how much the show has changed since the beginning - the salaries, the vacations, the women, the drama! We discuss the involvement of producers and editing throughout the years and the concept of “reality” as it exists, or lack thereof, in any reality TV show these days. Vicki opens up about her highs and lows during her fourteen years on the show. We discuss the evolution of her relationships that we saw play out on national TV - Don, Brooks, Steve. Vicki discusses her relationships with Kelly Dodd (where she thinks it all went wrong), Tamra Judge (going strong), Shannon Beador (can it be repaired?) as well as RHOC past Jeana Keough, Meghan King Edmonds, Heather Durbrow and Alexis (“Jesus Jugs”) Bellino. Vicki is honest about what she misses the most about Housewives and answers the age old question, would you ever go back? Finally, no sit down with The OG of the OC would be complete without a trip down memory lane regarding some of Vicki’s most iconic moments - the State of Oklahoma. Slade Smiley’s infamous comment and her plastic surgeries throughout the years, Lauri Peterson’s Ski Slope “multiple partners” and of course, last but certainly not least, just how many people can you fit into a family van?
