Vicki Gunvalson, Bravo Caught Staging Scenes For RHOC


Vicki Gunvalson is involved in a lie that outs Bravo for staging scenes on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki appeared on camera when her daughter Briana shocked her with the news she had married Ryan Culberson at a drive thru chapel in Las Vegas. “So you didn’t ask me for her hand in marriage? You didn’t think that was important for me to know?” Vicki fumed.

But in a text message, obtained exclusively by RadarOnline, between Vicki and her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers, it is revealed that she already knew Briana was married!

“What are y’all filming,” Brooks asked Gunvalson on November 2nd, 2011 at 1.40pm.

“Her telling me she’s engaged/married,” Gunvalson responded.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    I’m not sure that means it was staged. Since Vicki didn’t know whether it was engaged or married I think that was kind of mother’s intuition. She just knew something was up with Briana. Funnier than that to me was Brooks and Vicki trying to shop exclusive pictures of Briana and getting turned down.

    I can’t believe I am so hooked on this BS. I gotta give up ” reality TV”—the reality is IT IS STAGED— NOT REAL AT ALL!!!!!!!!!

    What is even more shocking is that it took them more than 3 hours to write those several sentences up… geeze…

    I don’t need text messages to know that much of this show is staged. Tamra and Gretchen’s engagement scenes were absolutely staged and fake. This is hardly a
    “GOTCHA” revelation.

    What liars they all are, as they laugh on their way to the bank.

    Maj am going to google now. Thanks
