Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson were both injured yesterday while filming a RHOOC trip to The Algodones Dunes in Glamis, California. Both women were sharing a dune buggy when they lost control and rolled it several times. Vicki was airlifted out and both were sent to the hospital where Tamra was treated and released and Vicki was held overnight for observation.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the accident happened in Glamis, CA around 12:50 PM Saturday … when the Polaris RZR the women were riding in rolled over multiple times. A camera crew for “Real Housewives of the O.C.” was taping at the time, and according to sources connected with production … Tamra was behind the wheel.
We’re told Vicki was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment. She was released early this morning with no major injuries. Tamra was also hospitalized, but released on Saturday. Both women were transported mostly out of an abundance of caution. We’re told neither was was in grave danger.
Vicki was just in Atlanta for an insurance meeting last week and flew back to California on Friday for a weekend trip to the desert. The good news (other than the fact that everyone is okayish) is that Tamra and Vicki are back together! YAY!
Heather Dubrow posted this morning that she was grateful for her family. It sounds like everyone left the filming site earlier than expected. I wonder how much of this they will show?
While I have your attention, I am starting to wonder if Shannon Beador quit RHOOC because of Vicki or got let go? She is probably filming but she has been oddly quiet on social media lately. I mean she’s still on it but not like Jac Laurita on it if you know what I mean.
She and her family went to Mexico for Easter and they are just now coming back from a weekend with David and the girls. If she was on the trip she took everyone with her a la Kim Fields.
I should probably look in into this. But right now I am late to recapping RHOA Reunion.
UPDATE! VICKI JUST POSTED THIS!
