Vicki Gunvalson Blames 'Real Housewives of Orange County' For Divorce


Of course, she does. Is anything ever Droopy's fault? Can't wait till she reveals to the world who exactly kidnapped and forced her to stay on a show that was supposedly causing so much drama to her marriage:
Bravo's hit reality franchise focuses on the lives of "Real Housewives," but is it ending their marriages in the process?


"Orange County" star Vicki Gunvalson filed for divorce from her husband Donn last year, and claims the reality program had something to do with it.


"Six years ago when Donn and I started, we didn't have 90 percent of the problems that we have now and I truly believe it is the show," she tells CNN.


"[W]e had a good foundation. We really felt like we could battle it and the reality was I got too busy for him. My business in itself - I have 400 agents and 12 employees and I'm at the office a lot because I was trying to film TV in there and then he felt deflated… the center of my universe was not my husband," she says. "I didn't have anything left for him and we grew distant. If I didn't have the show I would have had more time for him. That's the reality."

  1. She needs to get off her high horse and take some responsibility. I feel bad for Don. I'm sure he was tired of taking a back seat to her career and well, everything else.

    1. Even as she is saying the show caused all her marital woes, she's promoting her business. She has 400 agents, 12 employees! Get a clue Vicki. You love work more than your husband. When you love someone you make sure there is time. Period. I think you need to grow up, and see that your business was the problem. Good luck with the loser you're with now. Creepy!

    2. I wonder if that massive brain Vicki claims to have has she heard the word "transference"? Every single thing she puts off on Gretchen she herself is guilty of. In her dreams does she wish she was as beautiful and young, yup i said it, as she is and she should aspire to Gretchen being a "total class act". If the BFF braclets don't bother her why in God's name does she keep bringing them up? Gee let me count the ways.

  2. She is the biggest idiot I have ever seen. Her husband was GOLD and she treated him like crap. She has no one to blame for herself.

  6. Don't like the show much anymore. It's not the same! All the girls do is bitch and gossip about one another. They r just money hungry bitches!!! Tamara has turned into a 40 something year old SLUT. I feel sorry for her kids what an embarrassment as a mother. Growup Tamara your not in your twenties anymore!! Vicki is still the controlling BITCH that she ever was and Don deserves much much better.

  7. Can't stand the language used here, people sound so illiterate these days, yikes, filth has replaced real words!
    Tamra looks beautiful and just copies what she sees on t.v. Wish that one that goes to church could get them all born again but I don't know if she (Alexis) is either.
    Vicki drives us up the wall at her lack of introspection, wow!! Please Lord, find Don a nice wife.

  8. The truth is Vicki put everything ahead of Don. He lasted so much longer than I thought he would. She is the most self-absorbed person I have ever seen. She's materialistic and money hungry. I think Don and Jeana should get together. She always had a crush on him anyway.
    Vicki...you will never find true happiness as long as you put work and money ahead of love and friends. You will be lonely and miserable the rest of your life unless you get things in perspective.

  9. Shame on you Alexis, you are supposed to store your treasures in heaven. Jim is the biggest arrogant pig in the world. Vicky is disgusting and will die a lonely woman. Tamra is aging very fast and is starting to look like an almost 50 year old woman she is. Simon will be very happy for the rest of his life. Gretchen is real and Ihope she finds the man of her dreams.

  10. I would never want to be friends with any of these women (except Gretchen) but let's face it; they are so much fun to watch. It’s pretty sad for them that their lives are just a platform for "I can't believe I'm watching this" TV entertainment. We watch it for an hour a week; they live these sad self centered "plastic" lives pretending to be wives, lovers, mothers, and friends. Seriously who would want to be a husband, child, or friend of any of them? Again, except maybe Gretchen. Vicki isn't fooling anyone with her "work ethic." She's the saddest of them all! She’s just flat out arrogant and mean and I truly believe that Don is much better off without her! She does not have room in her life for anyone besides herself and her BFF Tamra who claims to be Hot…Hot Mess is more like it! I know it is TV drama, but really? I get the feeling that for most of these women the drama is the only reality……

  11. I was glad Don had grown some, to actually say something!! I'm proud of you Don! Vicki, is missing out!!! Her loss!!! She loves to be in control of everything and everyone! What a shame!!! She really is out of control herself! Balance is What she clearly doesn't have! She needs a reality slap! Tamara, needs to be more respectful not only with others but with herself. Be Discrete!!! Gretchen, what did she really think she was getting? She and Slade??? What is he bribing to the table?? She can't act shocked, he doesn't make money! When have we seen him make money since Joe and him split??? What kind of women would be with a man who doesn't pay his child support?? Slade, is not a man!!! He doesn't have his priorities straight!!! He's not the only one the economy hit. How and why would you chose this male for a partner and expect to have a future life a d family with a male who doesn't take care of his past?? Oh Get it Grechen can change him???

  12. Vicki is a sad sad lady that can never be happy unless the man obeys her. Tamera is scum that does not belong in the neighborhood (period). Alexis will do what it takes to keep money in her pocket and "picture" perfect life. And Gretchen just seems to want to be happy but doesn't fit in because she doesn't go to their levels. She can tolerate all except the true idiots. I used to watch the show weekly however Vicki and Tamera ruin it for me!

    Don should look up Quinn. She is beautiful and nice and that is what Don should have. Vicki is an ugly pig faced hag who told Don she was going to sell their house. She didn't even consider where Don was going to live. Vicki should marry Tamra. They are two of the nastiest, gossipy, hate-filled losers I have ever seen. They belong together. They obviously hate men.

  15. I think Donn is lucky to be rid of ungrateful Vickie.

    Simon is lucky to be slutty Tamra.

    Jeana is lucky to be rid of her mean husband.

    I am starting to wonder why the call it the Real HOUSEWIVES. Most of these women do not have husbands and all of them are losing their house.

  18. Tamra I hope yi hope tamra finds peace in her future endeavors. vickys pain is self inflicted..no sympathy here. Hope don finds a woman willin put him first. Gretchen just needs to get a grip on reality. But alexis is hemost self absorbed bigot! Fake fake fake...she makes me ill she is so jealous of peggy...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Vicki is delusional and a whiner, it's no wonder her husband left her. If she had put as much interest into her own marriage as she did Tamara's they'd both probably still be married.

    She ran Simon off and then Donn.

  20. Vicky, you are an idiot ! You will never find anyone than can truly handle you ! You need to change a lot !
    You are always busy to Don, you suck ! He is a catch ! I would have treated him with respect and spent time with him and if this show was giving you
    Problems than why didn't you quit, idiot !
    You have the worst girlfriend (Tamara)... Who is a LOSER !!
    After so many men and what ? 2 marriages failed you still are
    Friends with someone like that ? She lives in a rental and has nothing in her life..
    She bad mouths everybody when when Jenna do the same with her she
    Gets pissed ? You 2 are nuts, losers and deserve to be alone or with a creep like Ed!
    The guy is sick! He has buggy eyes and he is glued to tamara and she will
    Very soon find problems with him too.. So there you go, good friend you chose !
    I am pretty sure that you will cry a lot for a long time for making a stupid decision !

  21. Nothing seems to be Vicki's fault. She reckons that Don never loved her enough. What a load of crock. How many nights did he spend alone at home, while she was at work? How many vacations did she take without him? And how many times has she been outright rude to him? And that crying... what a laugh. She needs to wake up and take a real long look at herself. And what goes around... really does come around.

  25. Vicky you are a cheating WHO RE ! I think the way you raised you kids to screwing over a good guy tells it all! I wish you the worst along with you bf tamra.

  26. What ever happened to waiting till your divorce was finalized before getting into another relationship. Technically you are still considered having adultery until the divorce is final. Obviously your relationship with God takes a back seat. Once you put God first love, relationships and everything else will follow. I believe these women need to take a good look at their values and morals. This just proves to you money can not buy you happiness.

  27. Wow I'm watching the reunion part 2 right now. Vicki looks remarkably like Miss Piggy.

  28. If you look at all the issues Tamara has they're all about sticking her ugly nose into someone elses business. She's bashing Gretchen for sleeping with someone while her husband was sick yet she's banging some dude within days of her husband moving out. Then she talks to Slades ex-wife to dig up dirt about him. She is one evil bitch and she's fugly.

  29. Vicki's self absorbed, Tamara is crazy as ever...and evil, Alexis is hot but she's as shallow as ever, and the new girl is clueless. Gretchen is the only straight shooter...and she's en fuego.

  30. Tamara and Vicki are a couple of low class tramps. Oh, what about Tamara's mom...what woman at that age uses the word 'fuck' on camera....seriously?!?! YUCK!!! I guess it really doesn't fall far from the trash can. I hope Tamara, Vicki and Peggy get the boot next season. It's time for these fugly old hags to go!!! Gretchen is the coolest of the bunch.

  34. Vicki is a joke, Don be glad you are rid of her. She is a self absorbed controlling BITCH. You deserve so much better. Vicki said she already has a boyfriend but she never had time for Don or her kids. After the scene in Cabo I am sure Vicki and Tamara were slutting around, the two sluts belong together.It's amazing how Vicki and Tamara pass judgment on Gretchen but you she is the only truthful upfront LADY on the show.Tamara is so jealous of Gretchen its funny. The old hags wish they looked as good as Gretchen.

  35. god what trash talking - I used to love the show but this season has really hit an all time low. Vicki- how sad for you that you let Don go. He seems like an awesome husband and I think that you should've put him first before ANYTHING else. I think that you will one day regret your decision. Tamara - I agree with the other's, you should not have done the sexy tub scene. I think you did it to get back at Simon and really it just blew up in your face and showed your true colors. Also, I did laugh that you got mad at Jenna for getting in your business but than why are you always in Gretchen's business. Really??
    Alexis - come out from under the rock you have been living under. You look and act like a complete idiot. You are a beautiful girl but only a shell of a person. You don't seem the least bit human to me. And the way you are always talking about you and your husband and your wonderful marriage makes me want to vomit. I mean we are in the 20th Century so catch up would ya? Now on to Gretchen, like her but she is always trying to get her point across and really I just want her to shut up about it. I didn't think she was being fair when she acted like Vicki ran to the hospital to ruin Alexis's show, now really who would do that. I really thought that you looked like a complete fool on tv saying the things about Vicki that you said that day. Also, I think that you need to dump the dead weight Slade. What a complete loser! Also, the info that you have on your website in regards to the show, you should remove and just leave it up to the items that you sell. It looks a little low class to me. Peggy - I really like you and so far I think that you are the only one that has her shit together. So far anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am not sure why Vikki would blame the show for her divorce. If it had put a strain on the marriage, she certainly wasn't being forced to continue season after season. Vikki's priorities are making money and then making more money. Even her daughter missed her not spending time with her. Donn was there supporting you as you built your business. I guess you don't need him anymore. You are self centered and Donn deserves so much better. In the end, your money will not be what fulfills you.

  40. Vicki Gunvalson and Jim Bellino are cut from the same cloth: each is a fat, ugly, insecure, condescending, critical, crass, controlling, attention-hungry bully. The one HUGE difference is that Jim saw this about himself and promptly got his fat ass off of TV. He also lost weight and is looking pretty good, although this does not make up for the horrendous way he speaks down to and treats his wife. I cannot fathom that Vicki sees herself on TV and then thinks it's a good idea to come back for another season. Unbelievable.

  42. Celebrity is'nt everything....and Vicki sadly lost one of the 3 most precious things she had.Donn was a good husband to her and she has neglected hem in favour of showing her fans how work orientated she is......sure its good, but family are more precious. It's a shame Vicki

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have a lot of respect for Vickie ... She's a woman that works very hard. You don't see her sitting around on her butt waiting for a man to buy her expensive shoes, clothes and jewelry ... more women should be as independent as she is. Sorry Don if she's to much woman for you. I hope the best for Vickie.

  44. My god, all I read on here is a bunch of people so fired up about strangers - this is just tv. Scripted as well. These actors are paid to create drama! Bravo is very good at making such a huge audience believe this garbage. All these shows are a platform for these "actors" to sell us their products/services ie; Bethany - skinny girl, Ramona - her wine (can't recall the stupid name) Gretchen- her f ugly bags/makeup line , Sonja - toaster book (the most insane of all) Teresa - skinny italian (shocked bethany isn't suing for using ' skinny', which btw teresa is NOT) Vicky - he her stupid insurance agency, Jill - zarin fabrics was mentioned in one episode 37
    TIMES. Kim Zolniak - those nasty monkey wigs. Nene - her mouth. Omg, shall I go on!!! Infomercial!!!!!! lets not forget all the old ladies that are wanna be Britney Spears; Danielle, luann, kim, Mellisa and Simon (yes, the britney still applies). Just so annoying to watch them sell us on their BS as well as their crap products, please let tv go back to reality and dump this reality garbage.

  45. I just recently started watching this show and I'm only on season 4 so I'm slowly catching up - But this "woman" grinds my last nerve. With her stuck up attitude and the way she treats Donn and her kids, but then again she did create an ungrateful son.

  48. I used to always Tivo this show and Vicki was my favorite housewife because of her work ethic; I liked the fact that she had a successful insurance business and built it from the ground up. Being on reality tv is not good for any marriage; look at what happened to Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey.

  49. Vicky is so self centered she can't see straight She's an ultimate control freak, Don is a good man and he should be commended for putting up with all her crap for that long. 3rd strike....there might be a bum that will fall for her bull,..I hope not.

  50. Vikki is the meanest and most unattractive housewife, I only say this due to her inconsiderate treatment she give's others. Just because you have money doesn't mean you have class.
    I'd rather be low class, than no class! She is no class.

  52. Funny you all say nice things about Don. I personally thought he was creep, I never saw him show her genuine affection, or even be that nice to her or anyone else. He was like women. Sorry guys, I don't now what the men in your lives are like, but I wouldnt marry him if we were the last two people on Earth.

  54. Vicki is the only one to blame for her marriage failing. She never had the time for Don. She was always working, and for her to blame the show.... Why is she still on it if it was such a thorn in her side????
    Tamer was wrong doing the bath scene. Yes, I too believe she did it to get back at Simon. I do believe sooner or later her little one's will find out about it and then what?? How does she truthfully explain it to them?
    Tamer's mother should never be put on camera as I believe she is a drunk who can't control the language that comes out of her mouth.
    Peggy.... Thank God she's gone!!!! What is it with her. Just because Alexis tells her things that have happened to her or her kids she's competing with Peggy and her kids. Sorry Peg, but you're far from being all that!!!!
    Alexis..... Get rid of Jim. he is very controlling even if you don't want to admit it. I would have been gone for the crap and lying he did to you about Peggy. What else is he keeping from you???? If he kept the quiet, what else is he keeping from you???? Once a list always a lied!
    Gretchen, you are great. You tell it just like it is and don't take the bull crap the others try dishing on you. Be happy!!

    Yes, I too believe Jeanna should hook up with Don. That would be a perfect match. They are both so easy going and seem to be made for each other.

    How can Vickie date this new guy, name?????, after all the crap she has been saying to Gretchen about Slade? Slade has never been arrested Vicki!!
    What makes her situation sooooo much different? Will she learn to keep her mouth shut after this??? Probably not, as she is never happy unless her nose is in one of the other girls' business.

    The new girl this season is a little (lot) up-ity!!! Thinks she craps ice cream. Sorry B-atch you don't. Go back under the rock you came out from.


    Bravo should get rid of all of the girls but Gretchen and bring back Jeana. The show needs to return to "REAL" women!!!!
