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.”

  1. 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.

    1. Green with envy.
      Drooling over Lauri’s new car and happiness
      It as Tamra said, ” A Good Look”.
      Vicki was upset that she lost Laurie her Insurance Slave..

  2. 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

  3. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

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

  5. 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.
