Vicki Gunvalson and Lydia McLaughlin appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Monday night after an all new episode of RHOC. The two ladies answered viewer questions and caught up with the TV-host about the upcoming season and the drama that has happened so far.
Andy asked Vicki to respond to Tamra Judge’s comments about her from last week where Tamra said, “I mean, clearly Vicki hasn’t been in the parking lot of a gym in a long time, so she wouldn’t know if it was full or not.”
Vicki called the comment “ignorant” and said she works out a couple of times a week. She also complimented Tamra’s new look after her recent facelift when asked by the host what she thought.
Andy noted that Shannon Beador and Tamra had been tweeting letting viewers know that they had asked Lydia to stop talking about Vicki several times at Ava’s birthday party.
I asked her to stop 4 times, that we didnt want to hear what vicki was saying

“Did they show that?” Lydia fired back. “I feel like I could say a lot of things too, but that’s why it’s video and we can all watch what happens.”
Tamra replied with a peculiar tweet.
@OCLydia that’s not true. Do You remember telling us all the stuff vicki said about David and Eddie ?

“I’m confused what she means?” Lydia responded, while Andy assumed that she had told Tamra and Shannon stuff Vicki had said about David and Eddie. “I don’t know. I can’t follow,” Lydia added.
A caller asked Vicki what her thoughts were about Shannon holding her responsible for her weight gain. “I think it has to do with middle-age, because it’s difficult when you turn, 50-55, to keep your weight off… unless you work out everyday like Tamra. I also think hormones and I also think I’m not responsible for it, but I’ll take the blame again. If she wants to blame me, ‘I’m sorry.'”
The next caller asked Lydia if Ryan Culberson (Vicki’s son-in-law) ever apologized to her mom for freaking out on her for putting her feet up on the couch. (Season 8)
“We’re not talking about that,” Vicki butted in. While Andy responded, “Well, we are because I just asked the question.”
“No, not yet…” Lydia awkwardly replied, with Judy adding that she was “so over it.”
Another viewer asked if Vicki and Tamra would have made up by now if Shannon wasn’t in the picture. “What do you think?!” Vicki said fiercely at the TV screen. “What do you think?! I think yes!”
Andy said that without Shannon in the picture we don’t know what would have happened. Lydia added, “I think that Tamra has been hurt, and I think that hurt would be there if Shannon was there or not, but sometimes it’s nice to have an alliance with somebody.”
A viewer also asked Vicki if she misses her friendship with Tamra and added that Kelly isn’t good for her. “Well, I like Kelly and Kelly hasn’t hurt me yet,” Vicki said. “I totally miss Tamra. I’ve told her that and I said, ‘I want to bury the hatchet and I want to be friends again.'”
The next caller asked Lydia if she could clarify how Shannon is just like Vicki. “I wasn’t allowed to finish my train of thought because someone was yelling at me, but I was trying to say that they both have been hurt. My intention really was to bring them both together, but all I got out was, ‘You guys are alike,’ and she didn’t let me ever finish that thought.”
Another viewer asked Vicki what the current status of her relationship with Brooks and this didn’t make her very happy at all. “Oh my god, kill me. You guys, why doesn’t anybody talk about Donn? I was married to Donn for 20 years. I dated Brooks for 4 1/2, it’s like, ‘C’mon!’ We weren’t engaged, we weren’t married. There is NO status with Brooks. He’s moved on, he’s in Indiana.” Vicki claimed she knew that information through one of their mutual friends.
Andy asked if they think Brooks was watching and Lydia waved to the camera and said, “Hi Brooks!” Vicki added, “When are you going to pay me my money back?!” Interesting…
“I don’t love Brooks anymore,” Vicki continued when asked to clear up something she had said prior. “He was a person in my life, in my past, and I cared for him at that time, but no, I don’t love Brooks!”
What do you think about what Vicki and Lydia had to say?
