The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is arguably one of the most opinionated Housewives of any franchise, and she is now giving her opinion when it comes to the recent drama on the show, and, as usual, the OG held no punches!

She began by discussing Shannon Beador’s contentious divorce, saying that it made her think about her own split from her ex-husband Donn Gunvalson.

“Watching the emotions and the stress that Shannon was going through at this time was hard for me,” Vicky explained in her latest Bravo blog. “It brought back memories of when Donn and I were divorcing and the financial and emotional stress it causes on everyone.  I’m sure some of you have experienced this and can relate to the emotions that go into play when dividing assets, custody, and belongings that were built together for 17 years.”

And speaking of assets, Vicki opined that the fact that Shannon’s ex was ordered to pay her a whopping $30k/month means that he’s “making a lot of money,” and that Shannon is absolutely “entitled to a portion of it.”

In the end, Vicki says that her “heart goes out” to Shannon and her girls.

As for that showdown between Gina Kirschenheiter, and fellow newbie Emily Simpson’s husband, Shane Simpson, Vicki admitted that she had “no idea what happened” after she left the poker party, but, of course, that didn’t stop her from picking a side, and let’s just say it wasn’t Gina’s!

“I really have no idea what happened after I left Emily’s home the night of the poker party, but I do know that Gina was extremely loud the entire night. I think she was a bit “overserved” and also think she was trying too hard to fit into our group of friends,” shared Vicki.  “I don’t know what happened when it came to Shane telling her to lower her voice and stop using profanity, but I have to side with Shane on this one.”

She continued, “It had to have been past 11pm and with three small kids sleeping upstairs, I’m sure he felt it was time for her to go home. I also don’t think it’s any of our business to discuss it or comment negatively against Shane, because none of us were there. But…my gut says Shane had every right to be upset.”

What a surprise! Surely Vicki ‘siding with Shane’ has absolutely nothing at all to do with the fact that Gina boldly called her out for being dead WRONG for setting up a date between Kelly’s ex husband and her friend, right?!

Vicki also gave an update on her daughter, Briana Culberson’s recent health crisis, first stating that Briana and her family are “enjoying life in North Carolina.”

“They have a big home on 25 acres, and Briana’s lupus seems to be under control for the time being,” Vicki revealed.  “She is loving living in the south, and I’m doing my best to visit every few months.”
