According to a new report, the ladies recently traveled to the Marital Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona, where they reportedly filmed a reconciliation scene for the show. However, when it comes to the relationship between Vicki and Kelly, things may not be as peachy as they seem.
On March 18, All About the Tea told readers that Vicki and Kelly’s recent reconciliation wasn’t real. Instead, the outlet claims their supposedly rekindled friendship was forced by producers after the tension between them became disruptive during filming.
“Producers were sick of the constant fighting, especially on social media,” an insider said. “Kelly was refusing to film with Vicki, and the messy dynamic proved to be problematic.”
Things between the women reportedly got so bad that producers threatened to fine Kelly for sharing details of their feud on social media.
“Kelly was up against a wall to make nice with Vicki,” the production source dished. “She spilled show secrets on social media early in the filming season, and has been an ongoing production headache.”
While Vicki and Kelly were once close friends, things between them took a turn for the worse last year after Kelly learned that Vicki and her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, had gone out on a double date with her ex-husband, Michael Dodd, and another woman.
