Vicki Gunvalson, who got more than her 15 minutes of fame as the OG (Original Girl) on The Real Housewives of Orange County (RHOC), is holding onto the spotlight despite her exit from the Bravo TV show.
Gunvalson started her own podcast, including a Whoop It Up episode with Andy Cohen. And the RHOC alum’s spotlight didn’t end there.
Vicki also unfollowed former friend Shannon Beador, who held onto her starring role on Real Housewives of Orange County as Gunvalson got demoted to “friend of” and then fired.
In the wake of that “unfollow,” Gunvalson took some time to throw shade at Shannon while revealing what she considers really “worrying” in the world amid the coronavirus pandemic.
What’s Vicki Gunvalson up to after exiting RHOC, and how’s her ‘love tank’?
As the world continues to try to cope with the coronavirus pandemic, Vicki has stayed busy despite her exit from Real Housewives of Orange County.
Gunvalson and her pal Tamra Judge (who also exited RHOC) are filming their own reality TV show. Vicki even hinted at a Bravo TV connection by crediting Andy Cohen for the idea.
In addition, Vicki talked with People magazine about her “real life,” throwing shade at all the “fake stuff” portrayed on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Gunvalson said her new ventures will showcase her “real life,” which she described as “incredible, exhausting, and exciting.”
Gunvalson boasted she is “helping people every day in my business [Coto Insurance],” while playing the roles of “loving mother and grandma.”
As for that famous “love tank” that Vicki has said on RHOC she likes to keep filled, Gunvalson shared she has a “great relationship with [fiancé Steve Lodge].”
After four years together and an engagement that took place last April, Steve “wants to get married, like, tomorrow,” admitted Vicki.
But Gunvalson isn’t convinced that a quick wedding is the answer.
“[Steve Lodge is] like, ‘Let’s just go and do it.’ And I keep being like, ‘I’m a little busy this week!’ He’d be fine going to the courthouse.”
However, the RHOC OG refuses to go down to the courthouse to tie the knot. She wants a big wedding, with “all the kids and grandkids, and I want everyone there!”
Vicki Gunvalson throws shade at former pal and current RHOC star Shannon Beador
Although Vicki is busy, she took time to throw shade at her former friend, current Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador, in an interview with the Hollywood Gossip.
Gunvalson pontificated on the state of the world and what really worries her amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“There is a lot going on in the world right now, as you all know,” declared the RHOC alum.
She then revealed what she views as the three main events around the world.
“We have people dying of coronavirus, the stock market crashing, and me worrying about my insurance business at a critical point in this country,” said Vicki.
As for the woman who used to comprise the”tres amigas” (Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon), Gunvalson threw shade at Shannon.
Vicki said that “worrying about whether Shannon Beador is mad if I unfollowed her or not is not even something on my radar.”
Gunvalson went one step further in slamming Beador, throwing shade at all of her other Real Housewives of Orange County costars.
“There are more important things going on in the world than worrying about [Shannon Beador] or any of my other former costars,” summed up Vicki. “I wish everyone the best during this turbulent time in our country’s history.”
