The OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson was under fire during this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. After defending now ex boyfriend Brooks Ayers of a sketchy cancer diagnosis, being caught in lies and having many inconsistent stories the cast has seems to be at odds. Now as more information about Vicki’s knowledge of Brooks’ sickness has come out, cast mate Heather Dubrow recently spoke out about her current relationship with Vicki, and what her thoughts are on this whole cancer story.
On her new podcast Heather Dubrow’s World, she revealed that she had actually invited Vicki to appear on her show.Â “I just want everyone to know I did invite Vicki on the show, and she declined.”
Along with getting no for an answer, Dubrow also got a “loud voicemail” from Vicki.Â “We’re not agreeing on things, but we did have, I thought, a good conversation.”
You may question as to why Heather would want to bring Vicki onto the show as as they haven’t been on the best terms, but Heather shared,Â . “I do believe she should have a fair chance to tell her side of the story and tell her feelings, so I guess we’ll wait to hear if she releases any statements.”
Though Vicki and Brooks have been circling around the press lately and getting a lot of negativity, Heather actually feels sympathetic. “I feel bad that she’s in a bad place. That doesn’t mean I agree with what’s happened this year, but I feel bad about that.”
For her first episode, Heather had fellow cast members Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador come onto the show, and with chat about Vicki Gunvalson critics had called the podcast a “Vicki bashing session.” Heather did have a response to that for this week’s podcast.
That was not my intention at all. I made a point to say, you know, here’s what’s going on with me and Vicki because I didn’t want it to appear that way.”
