Vicki Gunvalson Explains Why She & Lauri Peterson Aren’t Friends & Why Lauri Is Mad!


Vicki Gunvalson is taking to her Bravo Blog to explain what happened with her friendship with Lauri Peterson. Vicki talks about her history with Lauri, reacts to the things Lauri said to Tamra on RHOC, and explains why she believes Lauri is bitter towards her and spreading rumors.

Vicki writes, “Lauri going ring shopping with Tamra was a joke to me. Last time I saw Lauri, she told me how much she couldn’t stand Tamra and now she is acting like she is her BFF and confidant. I have no clue why she said what she did about having Tamra taking Donn’s wedding ring. I thought that was very classless and very rude. Yes, the ring I bought Donn when we renewed our vows was amazing, but that is Donn’s ring and how she ever even thought of Tamra using Donn’s ring for Eddie was just very odd and quite frankly weird.

When Lauri asked Tamra if I was responsible for her marriage demise with Simon, I wanted to jump thru that TV and give her a piece of my mind. There is NO WAY I was ever responsible for their marriage issues. I am the one who told Tamra to stay married to Simon and to get counseling and to do whatever it took to save their relationship. Tamra can attest to this and for her to insinuate anything BUT that is a blatant lie and furthermore for Tamra not sticking up for me was just plain wrong.

When Lauri told Tamra that her and I stopped being friends when she started dating George because I wasn’t happy for her is also a lie. I wanted nothing more than for Lauri to be happy and to find a great man. I had been introduced to Lauri several years before we Season 1 through a mutual friend of ours. She was married to her second husband Philip and from the outside looking in she had the perfect life. Beautiful home in a gated community, Sophie was very little and Josh was no more than eight years old. Ashley was in high school, and all seemed perfectly normal at the Waring home. I remember thinking to myself, she had the perfect life. When I found out that her and Philip were getting a divorced I was shocked. I guess you never really know what goes on behind closed doors. I was sad to see her divorcing with three kids, but told her I would do anything to help her through the tough time that was ahead of her. I really liked Lauri and thought we were good friends and so when she reached out to me and asked me to help her get into the insurance business I was flattered and was all about helping her. Lauri hadn’t worked in years and she knew I ran a successful insurance practice so I was definitely willing to help her out. Lauri worked with me for a couple of years, however she never really had the desire or passion to make insurance selling her career. I think I was just a stepping stone to her next relationship or marriage.

When she met George, she was so happy, and I in turn was happy for her. I wanted only for her to find love again, and for her to be happy. When she told Tamra I was jealous of her being happy, is again just a blatant lie. The real reason why Lauri got upset with me is from while she was dating George — which you’ll have to watch to see. The truth is I was trying to protect her and not hurt her when I was told some “not so nice” information about George that I did not feel the need to pass on to her. I was trying to protect her, but it backfired and I thought it was over and done with as this happened over seven years ago. Lauri is bitter and has come back into our group for one reason only, and it’s to stir up trouble – and to try and get back on our show. I had seen her for several years after that “situation,” and never once did she mention this to me until now. I guess she doesn’t have much going on in her life anymore and wanted to come back with a vengeance. In any event, I’m happy she’s happy –- but one thing I will not tolerate is LIES. Stay tuned!”

  1. I actually believe Vicki, mind you, I really don’t care much for her at all, she has proven to be wishy washy with her family and the men she dates. Vicki has zero luck in finding the right man, Donn, at one point was rumored in blogosphere that he too was into swinging while married to Vicki.. not sure if that’s true, but I read that in many blogs two years ago? Not quite sure, so don’t quote me. Laurie is back for whatever reason and I don’t care for her much. Trouble and more craziness is heading to the OC.
    My opinion.

  2. I feel Vicki is extremely insecure. Vicki, you should be happy Lauri is back because she’s the only one in your age group.

    It’s a show, Vicki!

    1. I beg to differ. What Vicki knows about George is reality, not just a show! The Peterson’s, for now, have been successful in keeping their dirty laundry hidden for the most part, but the tide will turn with the s*** Lauri is supposedly back on the show to stir, will actually land back on her. Lauri will regret her return to Bravo. It’s really very poor timing for the Peterson’s.

      There’s a lot of bones in the Peterson camp and Vicki, and others know where they are buried! As the old saying goes, “Stay Tuned.”
