Is Vicki Gunvalson leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County? In a preview for part three of the Real Housewives of O.C. reunion, it looks as though the blonde RHOOC veteran may have finally had enough as some truly disturbing family drama comes to a head on camera.
Real Housewives reunions are known for extreme levels of drama as layers of resentment and conflict built over the season collide with all of the women in one room. But it appears that not even Vicki Gunvalson, who has been a central player on the smash hit Bravo show since 2006, can weather the storm this time. In part three of the reunion, Vicki stands up and storms off the set. "Guess what?" she snaps. "Vicki's done with the show!"
If Vicki's emotions are running particularly high, it's no surprise. The drama this time around stems from the housewife's on-and-off relationship with Brooks Ayers, who has been extremely unpopular with her friends and family due to his treatment of the California lady. Audio recordings have revealed damning evidence against Brooks, who has been caught on tape calling Vicki a "f*cking whore" and threatening to "beat [her] *ss."
As entertaining as the Real Housewives reunion drama usually is, there's nothing to laugh at this time around as Vicki's daughter Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson confronts Brooks over telling her own husband to start hitting her so she falls in line. Brooks admits that he did indeed say this to Briana's husband, and apologizes with the disclaimer that he was "drunk."
Watch the clip below:
Again, domestic violence is a more serious matter than a Bravo Real Housewives reunion can perhaps reflect, and what we can see of the final installment of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion paint a grim picture of Vicki's situation. Here's hoping this unhappy household works things out and finds some peace.
Part 3 of Bravo's Real Housewives of Orange County reunion airs Monday on Bravo at 8/7 central.
