During part two of the RHOC reunion, we saw Vicki Gunvalson actually apologize to her former friends Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador for spreading rumors about their families and marriages.
The episodes leading up to the reunion showed the ladies having fun in Iceland and some viewers were secretly hoping for a reconciliation among these three. Especially, Vicki and Tamra.
“I’m sorry,” Gunvalson told Beador and Judge. “I never meant to hurt either one of your families.”
“I won’t talk about it ever again, as God as my witness. I promise you. I’m sorry. I totally surrender,” Gunvalson told Judge, embracing her in a hug. “I love you, I really do, and I’m sorry I hurt you. I don’t want to hurt you and I don’t want to hurt anymore.”
Vicki continued, “Shannon, I want to hug you too because I’m sorry. I really am sorry. I’ve asked for forgiveness and I’m sorry,” she told Shannon, who joined them for a hug. “I feel for you. I do, I’ve literally been through it twice. It sucks. We gotta build each other up not tear each other down. We all are good people.”
“Vicki and I are good together, and that’s the truth,” Tamra said, referring to their friendship as “Lucy and Ethel” from I Love Lucy. “We’re good together. We’ve had this thing the whole time and I think for me, my love for Eddie and the love he has for me, and the relationship we have and the family life we have is so precious. Call me ugly, call me fat, call me stupid, but just don’t … I’ve had such a hard time with [my estranged daughter] Sidney and [my ex husband] Simon and all that’s going on. Just don’t hurt my family.”
Vicki vowed to never speak about Eddie’s sexuality again. She also told Shannon, “I want to be there for you. You got this. I’m sorry. I admire your strength and you’re going to be okay. And if you want a job at Coto Financial, we’re hiring.”
The episode ended by the ladies walking off the set for a break and Vicki hugging Tamra, Gunvalson asked, “Are we back?”
“We’re back,” Tamra said.
It seemed like both Tamra and Shannon were receptive to Vicki’s apology and even invited her to come join their couch.
So, was the reconciliation real?
An insider exclusively tells us, “Yes, the reconciliation between the ladies is real, but was very unexpected. They are currently on good terms.”
“Both Tamra and Shannon really want to believe that Vicki is being genuine,” our insider continued. ” They all have a fun time filming together and just want to move forward.”
Season 13 is starting to look very interesting.
