Vicki Gunvalson: My Heart Was Beating Rapidly, I Wasn’t Feeling Good

Vicki Gunvalson has a lot to say in her blog this week. She talks about how she was afraid to go on the RHOC Iceland trip because of her awkward relationship with her former BFF Tamra Judge. Saying she went into the trip with an open-mind, Vicki says it was really fun to be in a good place with Tamra again.

Gunvalson also opens up about her health scare and says she really didn’t feel well when she got back to the hotel room and explains that her heart was beating rapidly.

“This week’s episode, we all went to Iceland. I wasn’t too excited about this trip — Iceland was truly never on my bucket list of places to go, but I went with an open mind of taking these four days to just “have fun.” Life is easier that way, instead of having all this conflict that has been going on with the ladies.

I heard from many people regarding Tamra’s previous blog about me and it not being too nice, and truthfully, I still haven’t read it nor will I ever. She’s on this mission to divide and conquer… I still can’t figure out why. What is her goal? Is she trying to prove that she is right or that I am wrong? Why? Is this another one of her bullying tactics and games? Why is it that she will never admit that she also has a part in our conflict? She attempts to twist and turn things so she looks innocent. I see right through her, and I’m not playing her game as it’s childish and hurtful.

I have a diary dating back over four years with ALL of the lies she has accused me of, which I have not called her out on. Doing so will serve not good purpose. She will continue to defend herself and will never apologize or take accountability for her actions. When I asked her to meet me for tea a few episodes back, I went with the hope that we could put the past behind us and move forward. I was fully prepared to apologize and take accountability for when I’ve hurt her, but when she asked, “What’s up?” followed by, “What have I ever done to you?” I was speechless. Does she really think that she has done NOTHING to hurt me?

Heading to Iceland made me a bit nervous with her, as we didn’t talk ahead of time. I was bound and determined NOT to engage in arguing or fighting. I was not in the mood to banter back and forth on this trip with anyone, so for me, remaining quiet, unemotional, and rational felt like the right thing to do. Maybe it’s getting older and wiser, but looking back, all my screaming and yelling to defend myself was not the right way to act, and I want to learn from that.

It was really nice laughing again with Tamra. After all the hurt we both have caused each other, it felt good at least for that moment to feel like we could be back on track. Seeing all the flashbacks of all of our fun times over the past 10 years made me sad and happy. I will take accountability for what I have done to hurt her, but I guess I can’t expect any accountability or apology on her end.

I have talked to Steve about this a lot, so he knows how much this conflict between Tamra and I has affected me. His advice to me is to offer a sincere apology and not to ask or expect anything in return. Steve calls it a “naked apology.” I told her last year at the reunion that IF I could take back discussing Eddie privately with Kelly, I would — what more can I do?

The trip to Iceland was four days long, and two of them we traveled, so to say that we were tired is an understatement. The first night we were there, Kelly and I decided to go into town with Fridrik, who said he would show us around. We found a great little hamburger place on the side of the road which was one of the best meals we had while we were there. We ended up going to a little local bar that was hosting a 30-year high school reunion, and it reminded us of the movie Wedding Crashers. We had so much fun that night and were recognized by some local Icelandic residents, which was crazy to us. It was fun to “whoop it up” with Kelly, she and I always have a great time together.

When we got back to the hotel, we had a few hours of sleep and then had to get up early to go ATV’ing and glacier hiking. It was a very long day for us, and I was exhausted.

When I got back to the hotel, I wasn’t feeling good at all. I don’t know if it was overexertion, lack of sleep, lack of water or what. I could feel my heart beating really fast. I just wanted to sleep it off and elected not to go to dinner. When Kelly and Peggy came to my room to check up on me, they said I looked really bad, so they called down to Fridrik to come check on me. He called the police and paramedics after taking my pulse, he said it was rapid and wanted to be on the safe side and check it out. Stay tuned next week on what happened next.

We’re heading towards the end of this season, and I hope you have enjoyed it thus far. With each episode that I watch, it’s definitely like a living diary and brings back a whole host of emotions.”

    1. Yes, much! Thank You, for asking!
      Went to my GP this morning, am, half the way back to normal!
      I, am still in antibiotics for another 7 days (Ick).

  1. See, this is where the old saying about crying wolf comes in. I genuinely believe Vicki in this. Completely. Problem is, she’s so fucking melodramatic about everything that I can totally see why no one else believes her. Ya did it to yourself Vic.

  2. I just don’t/can’t believe Vicki on this. Staying out drinking until 3am is most likely the culprit (along with the altitude), imo. I will have to admit that Iceland seemed rather bland, isolated and boring. Sorry, maybe there is way more to see/do, and most likely had to do with this bunch of hags.

  3. Vicky’s whole problem was that she wasn’t the center of attention. Her meltdowns and bad acting are laughable. In this blog post, she still goes back and forth in saying she should just apologize and then making excuses as to why she’s the victim. When Tamra asks her what she’s done to Vicki she can’t come up with a single thing. She pretends she’s got volumes of evidence but can’t produce anything? She really is a narcissist and has zero self-awareness. Oh and a lying liar-face.

  4. and in all this nonsense she actually has a business – I honestly can’t imagine going to her for any of my financial needs after watching how she behaves – it’s disgraceful!

  5. Who keeps a diary like she describes? Seriously?! Soooo…last year she apologizes for having a discussion with Kelly about Eddie and this year she continues with the rumors and bullsh#%! She needs help – serious mental assistance!

  6. I can see the next season…..Vicky in her deathbed waiting for a heart transplant and all of a sudden Jesus heals her

  7. Vicki did look really sick. I dont blame her friends for worrying.
    Actually, Vicki did not dramatize this incident with her health at all, she stated the facts.
    I cannot & will not blame her for wanting peace & solitude in her world. She’s learnt from her drama & screeching. Not many learn from their mistakes.
    If there was peace & harmony everywhere, how much happier the world would be.
    I hope that Tamara & herself will forgive & move on to enjoy each other.

  8. After watching the episode I was now more convinced that Vicky’s emergency was nothing more than an attention grabber. I think she exaggerated her exhaustion and hang over and made it work for her “emergency”. It makes for good TV and hey, always the possibility of a casserole.

    As far as her make up with Tamra…what I watched was Tamra wanting the feud to come to an end and Vicky wanting to move on without any sacrifice. I understand where Tamra’s coming from. Arguing is tiring. But Vicky doesn’t understand that Tamra’s forgiveness just means she lets go of the anger and pain so she can be around Vicky without that negativity weighing her down. And moving on only means being civil to each other. It doesn’t mean hugs and kisses and good ole days again.
