Real Housewives of Orange County Star Vicki Gunvalson recently spoke to Wetpaint Entertainment about season 8 of the show. She also opens up about her relationship with former BFF and business partner Tamra Barney, being a new grandma, and the possibility of a third marriage in her future.
When asked what we can expect from Season 8 Vicki says, “Well, we’re negotiating Season 8 right now, I’m launching a vodka line. I’m really excited about that. It’s called Vicki’s Vodka. I partnered with Robert Williamson, III; he’s a celebrity poker player. So he’s my partner. And I’m going to be a grandma in about three weeks. My daughter’s having a baby. I’m really excited. Life’s good right now, and I’m going to keep all the negative haters out of my life.” Also gotta get that shameless plug in there.
In response to what she thinks about former best friend Tamra Barney Vicki explains, “I think she’s a hateful, hateful person. I don’t think in my wildest dreams I would ever be able to speak about Eddie [Judge] the way she did about Brooks [Ayers]. And it’s not something I’ll ever forget. I don’t care if I’m dating a monkey or a gorilla. Whatever it is, it’s my choice. You support and encourage me.”
When asked if she’s still with Brooks she explains, “We are still dating. It’s been definitely damaged by all the negativity. No matter who you’re with as a person, you want everybody to court and love you. But at the end of the day, it’s my life and I divorced two men because they weren’t good for me. Do you think I’m really going to stay with someone who’s not good for me? And I have this whole world of men to pick from. I just don’t know what my future is. For now, right now I’m very happy. I’m not going to worry about what other people think anymore.” She continues on the topic of Brooks’ bad publicity, “He has been through the ringer for no reason and he’s a good, good, good man. Did he fall on financial hard times? Absolutely. He never denied that. That doesn’t make a person a bad person. So everybody’s really got to take a look at what are you picking on now? At the end of the day, it’s my choice.” Vicki was asked if she would ever marry for the third time and she responded, “Oh, I don’t know. I’m way too damaged and hurt right now from my divorce and stuff so right now I’m just cleansing, taking care of me. I do love marriage. Unfortunately, I didn’t marry the right two people the first time. I’m just going to take time for me right now.”
Looks like Season 8 with Tamra and Vicki would be pretty interesting! We are excited for Brianna to have her baby, and we want to see more of Brianna and her new family on Bravo!
