Bravo has released the trailer for the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion, and Vicki Gunvalson – who is just a friend of the show and not part of the full-time cast – dominates almost every scene throughout the two-minute video.
As expected, the OG of the OC has a lot to say to Kelly Dodd, as the two have been feuding for forever. But, Gunvalson also has serious issues with newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. And, it’s crystal clear that the 57-year-old has a problem with Windham-Burke’s full-time status, while Bravo demoted Gunvalson to just a friend.
“Stop the cameras!” yells Gunvalson. “This is about my job, my career, and my show that I started 15 years ago!”
Later, Gunvalson screams at Windham-Burke: “Get her off my show!” And, the mom-of-seven fires back, “It’s not your show.” But, Gunvalson is convinced that the Real Housewives of Orange County belongs to her, as she replies, “Oh yes, Braunwyn. Season number one.”
According to Bravo’s press release, during part two of the three-part reunion Gunvalson “surprises everyone by insisting Braunwyn and her wilder ways has ‘destroyed’ the show she created.”
In the trailer, the Coto Insurance founder appears to walk off the set at one point and then she absolutely loses it when she realizes that cameras have followed her to her dressing room.
“Really? F–k off!” yells Gunvalson as she slams her dressing room door shut.
Gunvalson revealed at BravoCon in November that she has no plans to go back to RHOC as a friend of the show. She told the audience that she didn’t deserve her demotion because she is a cast member who created the Housewives franchise.
“I don’t deserve that,” explained Gunvalson. I’m a cast member that created this franchise and I need that [to be] respected. If they don’t want me, I’m fine … but don’t disrespect me.”
Since she does not have full-time status, Gunvalson will only make appearances during the reunion special. However, Windham-Burke, Dodd, Tamra Judge, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Shannon Beador will be sitting on the couches next to Andy Cohen the entire time.
Other topics that will come up are Shane and Emily Simpson’s crumbling marriage and possible divorce, Gina Kirschenheiter’s nasty divorce from Matt and his domestic violence arrest, and Kelly Dodd versus the Tres Amigas.
The three-part Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special begins on Bravo on Wednesday, December 18th, with part two airing on Monday, December 23rd, and part three on Thursday, December 26th.
