Vicki Gunvalson Reveals Knowledge Of George Peterson’s Past & Clears Up Cheating Rumors!


Vicki Gunvalson is clearing the air about the rumors that have come from Lauri Peterson’s return to The Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki explains in her Bravo Blog her side of what happened when Lauri’s husband’s mother-in-law contacted her, and the accusations that George was not a good father to his children. Vicki says that Lauri is flat out lying, breaks down the accusations and said the claims of her being with multiple men when she was with Donn are absolutely ridiculous. Read more of Vicki’s explanation below!

Vicki writes, “When Lauri worked for me over seven years ago, we were social friends. I met her through a mutual friend of ours, and I knew her only casually. I helped her when she needed me for a job, and I never had any negative or bad feelings towards her. I thought everything was fine between us when she left our show a few years ago, as we were still cordial and nice to one another when we did see each other. The fact that she decided to come back with all of these lies about me is nothing short of hurtful and mean. So, in order to defend myself I need to fill you all in.

I received a phone call from George’s ex-mother-in-law at my work who proceeded to tell me some “not so nice” things about George. She told me that her ex-son in law (George) was “not so nice” to his children and her daughter and that I should let Lauri know this. Since Lauri was a new friend of mine, I really didn’t know what to do with this information. I was not real close with her, but she did work for me and I didn’t want to get in her personal relationship with George, nor did I want to hurt her with this information because I didn’t know if it was true or just malicious information.

When I hung up the phone, I had two choices to make. Tell Lauri about this call that I received, or not. Since Lauri was so happy with George, and since I didn’t really want to get in the middle of it, I decided not to tell Lauri. The phone call followed up with an email from the mother-in-law, and again I did not tell Lauri. Jeana Keough and I were close friends at that time, and I went to Jeana and asked her opinion of what I should do. My intentions were good, and that I didn’t want to hurt Lauri at all nor did I want to get into their new relationship in any way shape or form. Jeana happened to tell some other people and it got back to Lauri and she was upset that I didn’t go to her with this negative information on George.

If I could go back in time (over seven years ago now), I would have gone directly to Lauri, never to Jeana, and just kept it between us. I had no intentions on hurting Lauri or talking behind her back. I never went to the press with this information, and never went “public” about this. I actually was very uncomfortable with this information from George’s ex-mother-in-law and I really wanted it to go away. This is Lauri’s “beef” with me. There is nothing else other than this. I was there for Lauri when she was going through her divorce when no one else was, and I really had good intentions.

The difference between Lauri and I, is that I really cared for her and that I never wanted to hurt her. Now that she has returned — I guess she has an axe to grind with me and decided to come back to stir the pot. Maybe her life is a little boring, maybe the perfect Brady Bunch as she described her family wasn’t so perfect after all, and maybe she just missed us all. I doubt any of that is actually true though. In any event, staying quiet and letting her throw out lies about me is something I can’t do. You will see as the episodes evolve, I do approach her on this, but at least now you will have some background on what and why this is happening with her.

When I heard and saw her conversation with Gretchen about “Vicki in bed with another woman and a man” I almost threw up. Talk about my blood boiling is an understatement. The truth of the matter is I took Lauri on an insurance convention with me in New Orleans. We actually filmed that trip which I believe was either Season 1 or 2. It was prior to her meeting George. Everything was great with us, as I took her on the trip to introduce her to my colleagues/friends and insurance professionals. One of the people who was on the trip was one of my sisters, who also was in the insurance industry. I had some of my close friends (who happened to be a few men) to my room for a cocktail party, which included Lauri, and my sister. It was really late in the evening, and a few of us sat on the bed talking while Lauri and others were in the room and was also part of this conversation. There was nothing ever inappropriate going on the entire time, everyone was FULLY CLOTHED, and she twisted it to Gretchen insinuating that I had a “threesome.”  It is filthy, raunchy and just disgusting on how and why she would say this about me. I am guessing that she decided to enter back into our lives to put unnecessary garbage and junk into Gretchen and others minds so she would get attention. Sorry Lauri — the truth always comes out and I can have anyone that was in that room attest to the fact that SHE IS LYING!

Lauri also mentioned something about a Greek man with “no teeth” that I brought home with me. That statement is another LIE. How and why would I bring a Greek man to United States with me, or even back to my hotel room when I was with 15 women the entire time?

This is what happened so you can understand how she has once again twisted the truth about something I told her into a lie. Over six years ago, one of my very dear friends invited me to Greece to go on a cooking/wine trip for eight days. Since I had never been out of the country, I thought it would be a great experience. I roomed with my friend, as well and the other women had a “roommate” as well. I was never alone or apart from my roommate the entire eight days. When I returned from Greece, Lauri was still working for me and I told her how attractive some of the Greek men and women. I told her we went dancing one evening and how much fun we all had and that we had met a group of young men that were a lot of fun. Nothing ever was inappropriate, or was there ever a time I was alone with them. The fact that she LIED again saying that I brought back a “toothless” Greek man is just unbelievable. My friend that I roomed with happened to see this episode and she called me and said “What is Lauri talking about? We were never apart for eight days, you never brought a Greek man back home nor did you have a relationship with any of them”. Again, another lie from Lauri, fabricating the truth.

Lastly, Lauri saying that I had multiple men during my marriage to Donn is another lie. Truth of the matter is I am in a male-dominated industry and I have a lot of male friends. I respect myself enough to know that I am not that person who Lauri insinuated me being. I am a mother and a businesswoman first; a loving person, and I have moral integrity. It’s been hard enough for me to expose some the truth on this show that I was not proud of, but I won’t tolerate lies. I feel sorry for Lauri that she felt she had to stoop this low and the only thing I can do is pray for her. Bottom line is I know who I am when no one is looking, and I sleep well at night knowing I am a godly woman who has moral integrity.

Looking back on these past few episodes, I feel very embarrassed and humiliated on some of the things that were said about me. What I do know is that I am a 51-year-old business woman who takes pride in my morals, my ethics and my family. Unfortunately, this has not shown in these past few weeks and all I can say is. . .I am sorry.

We all have made wrong decisions in the past, and the only thing we can do is learn from them. Life is a lesson, and I feel like I’m back in second grade attempting to continue to soak in all the lessons I can.

Lastly, I am not jealous of Gretchen or envious of Gretchen. She seems to think I am, and I am not. I want the best for Gretchen as I do for all of my friends. I just want her to leave me alone as I have done with her for the past few years. She doesn’t take the time to listen to me or hear my side, so there is no point in engaging in a debate with her to try and defend myself.”

  1. Oh! Oh no! The Chipmunk is at it again! Wreaking havoc on all those in her path! Someone please call Alvin and tell him his “naughty” chipmunk Vicki has escaped the asylum again!

  2. Vicky has this belief that she is “Godly”! Most of us would like to believe this or that about themselves. We feel that this is what I think I am so therefore this must be the way people perceive me, it has to be! At least we try to convince ourselves this “is” who we are.
    I truly don’t believe a “Godly” person would surgically mar their image as much as Vicky has! That is not Godly at all! Godly would be loving yourself for exactly who you are. Sorry Vicky but “Plastic Faces, Plastic Surgery” is not included in being Godly! You are being delusional again! I don’t understand why you cannot believe in yourself! Oh wait a minute. I take that back. This “IS” reality T.V.! Ratings, rating, ratings!
    It takes a very humble person to admit their weaknesses, failures, lies.
    Vicky thinks she is just defending herself when in fact she is being exactly like Laurie. They are no different from each other taking “pot-shots” at one another.
    “Who tells the tale better? Who sounds smarter? Who’s story is more factual? People “will” believe me because I have details. I was there, she wasn’t. I know how to embellish a story!”
    This is what Vicky said: “Bottom line is I know who I am when no one is looking, and I sleep well at night knowing I am a godly woman who has moral integrity.”
    And then she says this:
    “How and why would I bring a Greek man to United States with me, or even back to my hotel room…….”
    That is such a “Racial Slur”! What are you insuating about “Greek” people? Are you a “racist” Vicky? Yes, you just stereotyped all the Greek people in the world. How dare you!!!!! Go look in the mirror again and tell yourself “I am a liar”, “I just want to get even with Laurie”, “I will stoop so low to say anything just to make her look like a bad person”, “I am afraid no one will like me if what Laurie says is true”, “I cannot let people believe her story”, “I think I am better than everyone”, again say “I just want to get even with Laurie”!!!!!
    Well Vicky in case you were wondering if your B.S. story above sounds believable, the answer is …..NO!
    On screen you are depicting yourself to be insecure, disloyal, two-faced, lacking integrity, un-believable, a back-stabber, a phony, a bad girl-friend, untrustworthy and more………

    1. I see this is years old, but for her to say why would I bring a Greek man home when she was IN GREECE is really reaching to make that anything even close to a racial slur. I am pretty sure that men from Greece consider themselves Greek. People from America are Americans and would be described as Americans, right? wow.

    2. Just the fact that her explanations go on and on and on ad nauseam screamed guilt. I think they should have got rid of her s long long time ago. Ask she does is shriek. And lie. Bleh.

    1. I wonder why the grandma is writing again after all these years? We heard this same conversation when she was moving in with George, and Lauri was
      seen taking a painting out of house.

  3. what a contradiction of words. Gretchen is right~ You started this by saying more than once,. “I didn’t know Lauri very well, we weren’t close, etc. and THEN you said you were good friends, cared about her and had no intent on hurting her. WOW.. read this twice and your head spins.

  4. I’ve seen the way you behave Vicki. You drink excessively and act like a loudmouthed lush. On the other hand, I’ve never seen Lauri say a bad thing about anyone or behave less than a lady. So, with that in mind, I think you’re the liar and Lauri is the truth teller. Your behavior speaks or itself.

  5. You are pathetic. And you don’t wish anything bad for Gretchen? Hey, tune into Bravo Monday nights, Hypocrite!!! I got your “bye bye Gretchen….” This week… Evil liar. Then buying Brooks a house, giving him stock to sell back to your partner to pay his taxes and child support and taxes yet acting so insecure as he tromples all over you admitting to dating others. Obviously until you did these things. Then talking smack about these ladies. Nice peeing on the bed too. You are not a classy woman anymore. And blaming Brianna all the time when they are paying rent and can afford their own place is awful of you. Funny you don’t mention the deal you made with them. They have a right to the rules that were made when you begged them to move in and pay the 1000 monthly. I sure or was when Brooks dumped you.

  6. Wow what a load of crap. I watched the episodes when Lauri was in previous seasons and you both looked like good friends then (before she married George)! Going shopping, lunching, dining, holidays away together. And now you are trying to convince the world that you were never close. You really do believe your own lies. As for being a godly wholesome woman boy did you get that completely wrong. You’re always out partying, whooping it up and being a nasty bitch to everyone. You are always right and everyone else is wrong. You are a hypocrite (nasty comments to Slade about his parenting skills but then dating a man who was in prison for not being a good dad). Saying that you have left Gretchen alone – do you not remember every season that you have criticised her for dating Slade when you are dating someone 10 times worse. Did you feel special knowing that while you were parading around in that fur coat your loser boyfriend’s kids were not receiving child support because he was spending his money on you. Or was that your money again? Do you even read these comments you write or are you in Vicki la la land again? And do you ever feel responsible for breaking up Tamra’s marriage to Simon? No of course you don’t because Vicki is always in the right, never lies and is such a godly woman that she never cheated on her husband. Please Vicki do us all a favour and go away and take your loser deadbeat boyfriend with you!

  7. I don’t believe Vicki ever had a good intention in her life. Its pretty plain to see that she drinks to excess so its not that much of a leap to believe that she has, from time-to-time, had too much to drink and ended up in bed with men. The drinking is starting to take a toll on her looks. Her skin is horrible, her complexion has that ruddy red alcohol look and she’s putting on a tremendous amount of weight. I think rehab would do her wonders.

  8. Vicki, take your extensions out. Your hair is a mess this season. If you DO have extensions in, they are made from real hair, it will also react as real hair does.

  9. How can so many people comment on this and bash Vicky? Last time I checked, you tearing her down, commenting on her appearance and her behavior the way that you are, makes you just as bad as your accusing her of being!

  10. Apparently most of these commenters don’t watch the show. If they did, they would know that Vicki is not a drunken whore, shes actually the life of the party, desperately trying to get everyone to have a good time. She has always acted a lady, I cannot say the same for some of the other cast members. I was sad to see her marriage end, Don was very likable, but he did not love her, so I applaud her courage to move on, I hope she also moves on from Brooks, she deserves better. The other nasty housewives can go scratch, especially Lauri, she is so fake and a high school mean girl, I hope she never needs a job, because Vicki won’t be hiring her ever again. Vicki is was and will always be my favorite on this show, GO VICKI! This show would suck without the OG from the OC!

    1. She slept around while married, dances like a slut on bars and pees her pants on TV – yep she sure is one classy lady! What a great role model for women her age.

  11. LOL vicki is such a liar. She helped lauri through a divorce because she was such a good friend but when lauri worked for vicki she barely knew her?? Lauri was single on the show til she met george so whats up with that lie vicki? And vicki was just beside herself with what to do with the info the ex mothernlaw told her, lol, how bout mind your own business. Lets see, she barely knew lauri so she couldnt tell her but yet she cared too much for lauri & didnt want to tell her & hurt her? Which one is it? And the 3some allegation??? How many times does lauri have to say she neversaid they were having sex? Vicki just keeps goin on & on about it, pretty defensive over something that wasnt even said lol. Im getting kinda sick of vicki, shes showing her true colors more & more, a jealous gossiping hypocrite.

  12. So sick of her. Her endless defense is obvious of her guilt. I’m sick of her shrieking her hypocrisies. She should have been one of three first to go. I don’t know how she raised such a normal daughter.
