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.
