Lauri Peterson has stirred up the drama with her return to The Real Housewives of Orange County, and in an exclusive interview with RumorFix, she reveals, “I have no personal vendetta against Vicki.” Lauri who made accusations that Vicki had a threesome with another woman and man while married to Donn has been labeled as a troublemaker in season 8. “Coming back on the show was strictly just to have fun with the women,” Lauri tells Real Mr. Housewife. “I had no idea that Gretchen [Rossi] would bring up what she brought. You have to remember that when you’re doing a reality show, my conversation with Gretchen was about a two-hour conversation that ended up getting ten minutes of the conversation that ended up on air. Of course they’re going to use the most dramatic parts.”
Lauri reveals that Gretchen dished about all of the women when she met Lauri at the stables, but the producers only showed the parts about Vicki. “I do feel like there was some hypocrisy and I wanted to let Gretchen know that Vicki was the last person who should make an issue of infidelity. That was my point. Vicki has come out and admitted to cheating on Donn, so that whole personal vendetta — there is no vendetta. I’m just being honest and truthful,” Lauri says.
Lauri explains her issues with Vicki go back to season 2 of the show when she worked for Vicki and they would confide in each other about personal matters. Lauri was having problems with George’s ex-wife, who she ended up getting a five year restraining order against, and Vicki crossed the line when she talked to George’s ex mother in law.
“Who talks to an ex spouse or mother in law when you’re a friend?” Lauri asks. “She never mentioned anything. The very next day all of the Housewives had to go do some Bravo public relations things. Jeana Keough came to me and said, ‘Just to let you know, Vicki has an email from George’s ex mother in law and she has sent that email everywhere. Just so you know, she has sent it to several people. Those people are spreading it out and it’s going viral.’ I was very upset … A true friend would not have given this woman her email address to then accept an email which was twelve pages long of slanderous material — just all untrue, fabricated lies. To take that email and send it to everybody but me? That defined our relationship at that moment. We were not friends and I realized that.”
