Vicki Gunvalson headed off to Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara with two other ladies right after filming the reunion for a couple of days to destress and detox. Of course nothing says taking your mind off the reunion like doing a long periscope about the reunion from the spa where you are decompressing. Oh, and advertising for your newest venture, Club Detox.
For those who are unaware, Periscope is an app owned by Twitter that allows people to do a live feed on the Internet of whatever they may be doing at the time, and people can send them questions to answer. Apparently, it is fascinating. I wouldn’t know. I don’t even use the stupid cell phone I got. It is just to protect me from bears when I am hiking. I do not really go hiking, but if I do, I have a phone I can call 911 on. Maybe. If I can figure out how to get to the phone dialing page. People seem to get very angry with me for not having a phone. Or they assume I can’t afford a phone and want to take up a collection. The fact of the matter is, anything I want to do online, I do on my laptop. If I need to call someone, I can use a thing called a phone. It’s for calling people. You can also use your laptop to view periscopes but not if Internet Explorer is your browser. This doesn’t stop people from repeatedly sending me links to so and so’s periscope instead of just giving me the pertinent details in full, comprehensible sentences. I’ve received a lot of emails about Vicki’s periscope yesterday, and two of them even actually told me what she said. So I’m going to go over the major points of what I’ve learned.
Whatever Brooks said in his one on one interview with Andy left Vicki “disappointed” in him. Now that she is single, she is looking forward to turning a corner in her life She said that she will never get back together with Brooks. Specifically she said there is 100 percent no chance of reconciliation. She reiterated several times that Brooks DOES have cancer. She said she has not spoken to him in a while. She said she was going to move to Nashville with Brooks if it had worked out! That is unbelievable! I can’t see her ever leaving Orange County. She said it’s best for both of them not to be together.
Vicki seems to still be in love with Donn. I don’t think she ever got over him. She said Don doesn’t like her very much right now. Donn and Briana got together when Briana was in town for the reunion. Don apparently told Briana he is single and has not had a home cooked meal since Vicki and Briana cooked for him. She said Briana is hopefully moving back in a year. Ryan is having two hip surgeries next week.
Overall, Vicki said that the reunion went pretty well. That assessment seems to be because she didn’t cry or scream. She was disappointed in all four of the other housewives. She said they tried to get her to confess something and she refused because she wasn’t lying. This is clearly about the cancer storyline. Vicki said that Shannon truly believes that she was lying about the timeline of the cancer (sound familiar?) and seemed to want Vicki to confess to duping her. Vicki continues to deny that she deceived anyone and that the cancer storyline is genuine. Vicki says that something interesting happened at the reunion that makes her think that she and Shannon may be able to mend their friendship at a future point. For now, she and Shannon are not friends.
Vicki felt attacked by everyone. She said Meghan came in like a bulldozer. Vicki hopes that Meghan is not on next season. Heather came in armed with questions I didn’t get much info on Tamra and Vicki’s interactions other than it seemed that Tamra joined in on the dogpile at least somewhat. Last I read on Twitter, Vicki and Tamra are currently friends. Vicki said that everyone at the reunion was trying to get her to fold, but she didn’t. Vicki is adamant that she has been nothing but truthful about the cancer storyline and the other ladies have hurt her feelings.
Random Info On Other Housewives
Vicki shared that Tamra’s son Ryan is not getting married in her backyard after all. She said the wedding is “on hold.” But in fact it is likely “never going to happen” as there have been domestic violence issues with the couple that recently were discussed here .
Perhaps the weirdest part of the whole periscope is that it seems Vicki is suddenly friends with Gretchen Rossi (who remains an arch enemy of Tamra). And Shannon and Gretchen recently had a catfight on WWHL! She said that Gretchen has a good heart. She texts with Gretchen and wishes she could replace Meghan next year. She says Meghan should never have been cast and came to the show with an agenda against Vicki.
The Others On the Periscope.
One of the ladies with Vicki is from Club Detox, the company that Vicki recently invested in. I forget what the other one does because I don’t care. They both seemed very eager to be on the periscope and blow the requisite sunshine up Vicki’s butt to be included. One of the ladies Vicki was periscoping with randomly shouted out that Shannon was a loser! One claimed to be Vicki’s soul mate, an assertion Vicki took issue with saying she has not yet met her soul mate. The two would chime in that this periscope is better than the show, and it was the real Vicki. Vicki seems put off by their interruptions. One periscope reviewer said that Vick was very controlling and would cut off the other ladies when they tried to interject.
Plans For the Future
She said she is working on a TV development deal with Evolution and is very excited about her opportunities. She talked a lot about how she is excited for the future, new start, new opportunities. She doesn’t need a man but likes a partner God has good stuff planned for her.
So where you surprised by any of this?
