Vicki Gunvalson’s Advice to Kelly Dodd Amidst Divorce

RHOC star Kelly Dodd may have a long road ahead of her when it comes to her pending divorce from Michael, but she has one supporter in her friend Vicki Gunvalson.

“She told me how unhappy she was, and I said, ‘Well, maybe, it’s just putting yourself on reality TV, it’s tough. There’s a lot of marriages that fail when you’re on a reality TV show because it puts pressure on it,'” Vicki shared. “And I think they’re 15 or 16 years apart, and she just said, ‘I think we’re better apart.'”

Kelly and Vicki went on a girl’s trip to Mexico in August.

“It makes me sad because [my boyfriend] Steve [Lodge] and I adore Michael and Kelly. Steve’s really good friends with Michael. They get together a lot, at least once a week, or talk a lot. And I don’t like to see breakups. My breakup was public. It’s hard. She’s got [her daughter] little Jolie who’s 11,” Vicki told The Daily Dish. “Everybody gets to choose who they want to be with, and you either have to make it better or you have to part because you can’t live in this place of sadness and disconnect. I don’t know what their future is, but I just told her either way I support her and love her and that’s what a friend does, right? I’m not gonna judge. I’m not gonna tell her what she should or shouldn’t do. She has to walk in those shoes.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    That dress looks hideous on VG. She is not 20…get a wardrobe makeover dude.

    • Starr

      My thoughts exactly! Some of Vicki’s dress choices are just awful.

    • timdun

      I shouldn’t be so catty but it looks like she’s also gained weight which makes the dress look even worse.

      Did you see the getup she wore on Wendy Williams this week? Ugh~

    Vicki is definitely qualified to give divorce advice. It’s a topic in which she’s well-versed. Advice on a loving, faithful, reciprocal marriage, however, is something she knows nothing about.

    Remember when Lauri was going to get married? Vicki was seething. Even back then she was in a miserable marriage to Don. What a sad sack.

        Hey Minx … fancy meeting you here! This must be the cool people site.

    The dress manufacturer/store is probably begging her to remove the tag.
    …”my breakup was public…uh which one there, little miss it’s all about meeeee

    Man, Vicki and Kelly are on display aren’t they? It’s not a good look for either one of them, Vicki especially. At least Kelly has youth on her side, but still not good.

    • I always wondered why they chose Kelly to become part of a show we watch ( or I watch ) to see the beautiful people, clothes, homes, vacations, parties, none of which she has. She isn’t even close to being pretty, her wardrobe is atrocious, her attitude stinks and she is downright cruel. Maybe her evil guts makes it to the outside.

        I can not see how it would be desirable to be part of the RHOC.
        Heather was an actress (and Terry had done the Swan) they knew the Reality TV Drill. They also knew when it was time to, leave.
        The rest? Unless they are Hawking brands and such what would be the Motivation?Be filmed with Lunatics while exploiting your Children and potentially ruining your Marriage?
        It looks as if Bravo hit the bottom of the barrel with Kelly.

    I suppose Victim is a perfectly fine looking woman, but she does need to stop raiding Brianna’s closet (from 10 sizes ago).

    Happy Saturday cutie ☀️☀️☀️ I hope you have fun plans for the weekend with your honey xoxxo

  • Kitty

    It would be really nice if for two seconds Vicki could stop reminding us that she is a victim. Yes this divorce must be really hard for her and Steve. A real friend would just say, “this is very tough for Kelly and I support her while she works through this.” Over and done, stop trying to steal her drama.

    • Minx

      Key words;
      Real & Friend.
      Vicki is incapable of fitting in either catagory. Much less both..
      Fake Friend and User? Yes.

  • Kitty

    Not to piggy back but I totally agree. I read other sites but I don’t comment because people are so vicious.

  • Minx

    Nope! No Unicorn, butterfly or spider web..
