Real Housewife from Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson files for divorce
Despite filming an episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County last year where she and her husband of 16 years renewed their wedding vows, Vicki Gunvalson is now calling it quits.The 48-year-old has filed for divorce from her husband Donn. %0D
The news doesn't really come as a surprise to fans of the show, given that a great deal of the scenes involving the two often highlighted their marital spats. Vicki is renowned for being an independent woman, often going on holiday with her girlfriends instead of her husband, and always putting him down. In one episode, Vicki told Donn that her 'love tank is empty' and on last season's reunion show she said, 'I just don't feel happy right now.'%0D
Vicki's two children, Michael and Briana, are from a previous marriage and Michael, who also appears on the show, spilled the beans to U.S. website Radaronline.'My mom and Donn haven't been spending much time together. They're just not really enjoying each others company anymore,so it doesn't really bother me,' said Michael, whose troubled relationship with his stepfather was also no secret on the show. 'I think it's for the best and they don't really enjoy spending time with each other any more and my mom's always gone and travelling.%0D
'Donn deserves someone who's going to be at home and she deserves someone that's going to support what she does,' Michael added.%0D
However, he said he didn't think them being on television was the reason the pair split up. 'They had issues when I was a little kid and stuff,' he said. Vicki wasted no time taking to her Facebook page shortly after the split became public. She posted in her status update: 'Donn has been an important part of my life and he will continue to be. Anyone who has gone through a divorce understands that this is a personal matter and a difficult time in our lives. 'Therefore we ask that you please respect our privacy at this time. I would also like to thank all of you for the outpouring of love and support that we have received.'%0D
The original Bravo Reality show that spawned several spinoffs in other cities may now have to change its name to The Single Ladies...Of Orange County. Tamra Barney - another O.C. housewife has also split from her husband, Simon%0D
Maybe Simon had a point....now that he''s out of Tamara''s life, Vicki is moving in????
That''s right, R1! Jenna seemed to have a little crush on Donn, and she admired him, and liked his personality.%0D\
It seems so many couples who renew their wedding vows end up separating and getting divorced.%0D\
Vicki and Donn just renewed their wedding vows on a beach in Turks and Caico about a year or so ago.%0D\
I got the impression that Donn does not give Vicki enough sex, and that it was a continuing problem in their marriage. Vicki kept saying ''Donn does not fill up my love tank''!
That whole renewing of the marriage vows is like a kiss of death for a marriages.\
Not to mention the whole Bravo RealHousewife crap.
Vicki''s a dumb cunt, anyway. She deserves to die alone with her piles of money.
"We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time." %0D\
Excuse me? Honey, YOU are the one who put your entire personal life on television.%0D
Whenever a couple renw their vows, it is a red flag that their marriage is in trouble and they''re trying to make a new start.
In some ways their relationship did seem the healthiest of the bunch; I always thought the girls should be able to get away for that Florida vacation. Vicki did take a lot of shit for insisting it be a girls weekend - granted her reaction to the men coming was rude but both she and Donn had some sense of proportion about the value of spending time with friends.
Who could live with that obnoxious, fugly bitch? She''s the biggest control freak and ball buster of all time.
Lynn will be filing next.
Don was boring. I''m glad Vicki got rid of him for the sake of the show.
Only 48? Really???
Patti Stanger said on "Watch What Happens Live" that Vicki wants to feel more like a girl in the relationship and Donn has a drinking problem (she said she has spent a bit of time with them)
Maker''s Mark and Ginger Ale
Oh Yeah, Patti Stanger was full of comments on that show. I was shocked that she called her ex-fiance out for being in it only for the "money train". She''s been with him for years; looks like she should have already had some things figured out. However, even Patti is more likeable than Vicki.
I hope Donn gets to hit it with Jeanna Keough. Great material for the OC show!!!!
Gretchen''s Brain Wave
Vicki kept saying ''Donn does not fill up my love tank''!%0D\
******No wonder he can''t fill it up....her twat''s as large as a TANK!
48?! She''s been 48 for the last 5 seasons.
"Patti Stanger said on "Watch What Happens Live" that Vicki wants to feel more like a girl in the relationship and Donn has a drinking problem (she said she has spent a bit of time with them)"\
That fat Punky Brewster look-alike has a lot of nerve divulging someone''s supposed drinking problem when she doesn''t have all the facts. And at 62, Vicki''s a little old to be feeling like a girl, isn''t she?
I''m sure Alexis and her pig husband are gloating over Vicki''s divorce, as is Simon.
I have news for Patti Stanger, the millionairess extrodinaire, VICKI has a drinking problem, as well. Watch the show!!
MY BOOBS WANT TO COME OUT TO PLAY. WOO HOO
You know Simon is probably smiling just a wee bit, but even he mentioned how sorry he felt for Donn on the show when Vicki was up to yer ole antics.
call me Don.%0D\
Ya seem like a good time.
Don always seemed so sweet. he''s lucky to be rid of that harpy.
I dumped cable a couple years ago so I haven't watched in a while, but remember that one dinner party where Alexis cried throughout the whole thing because her husband wasn't there and she couldn't handle being away from him for all of a few hours? Donn did this hilarious impression of her in the car afterwards by wailing "HOW CAN I EAT MY ASPARAGUS WITHOUT MY BEST FRIIIIIEEEEEND?!" Anyway, I will always love him for that.
I can't find a thread for the new season featuring Victoria's renovated face.
Is there one?
It amazes me that this boring show comes back, but nothing on RHONYC.
I enjoyed welcoming the old broads back into my home. I still like Tamra though I would steer clear of her in real life. Heather and her storylines are still boring.
Briana's husband is quite sexy. Good for her.
Her husband is not cute. He just got deployed.
Vicki's face lift looks like shit, still the pointy chin and now she looks like she has no bottom teeth
Who is the new chick that is joining? The showed her in the upcoming scenes. She's ugly and sounds pretty stupid. Plus she's friends with Alexis which isn't exactly impressive.
It will be nice to see Laurie again, but I wonder why she's coming back.
I'm not sure if I read it on here or a blog(s) but there seems to be some stories out there that Tamra's fiancé, Eddie, is not exactly heterosexual. He does ping a little. Well, more than a little.
Tamra Barney is fucking gross anyhow. She has some weird Oedipal shit with her fug son. Simon was hot though.
Vicki tweeted yesterday to the other housewives a link about Laurie cheating after she got married.
Also, today she tweeted that she's hanging out with Tamra so they made up.
Vicki's face doesn't look bad, she looks okay facially. Her gut, however..she needs to lay off the wine.
Lauri is there to stir shit up. She wants her orange back. I guess her and Vicki aren't friends anymore.
Vicki is one of the most repugnant people to ever be on tv
with a face like that she should run from cameras
what happened to her grifter boyfriend Brooks
Lauri cheated on her husband? They must be broke if she's trying to get back on the show.
Witch faced Tamra could make this show unwatchable really quickly. "I always say that Brooks must have been conceived anally because he's a real asshole!" Oh do you say that, Tamra? How clever of you. I always say you must have been conceived vaginally because you're a noxious cunt, as always.
RE 36 There was a shot on the opening episode, where Eddie, Tamra, and Gretchen , are walking into Heather's 'clambake', and you see the 3 of them, walking up to the front door, from behind.Eddie, who I do think has a cute face, is very much fit-fat. He's wearing jeans, and his ass / body , look so dumpy - maybe he wears the wrong clothes for his shortish frame. Anyway, judging from that, he seems totally straight - no cute gay would wear the crappy fitting outfits.
I thought his ass looked good
I got so used to saying Tamra's last name that I forgot why we clarified and that there was another Tammy too. I miss Knickerbocker, she was cool. Her daughter was kind of fat and trashy but the thin daughter was really cute.
She looked much better before surgery, even after her work settled.
Victoria looks like a fresh-faced ingenue now. Supple, smooth skin. Bright eyes. Flawless.
I don't really see much difference, to tell the truth. And she's still as big an attention whore as ever.
r50, are you suggesting that these "housewives" are attention whores? No. I won't hear it.
"Victoria looks like a fresh-faced ingenue now. Supple, smooth skin. Bright eyes. Flawless."
Are you fucking kidding? She looks like shit. actually looks worse then she did before and she looked like shit then to.
Laurie wants back on the show because her marriage with George is in the shitter. I wonder if she signed a pre-nup?
r52, Victoria doesn't care about your negativity. She is looking lovely, doing lovely things, and living life lovingly.
Victoria's new chin is vaguely reminiscent of the prosthetic that Roger Ebert wore.
She basically admitted she got plastic surgery because Slade insulted her looks. Yikes. I actually feel bad for her.
Remember when Vicki threw a party for herself so all of her friends and the TV cameras could watch her receive an award for selling the most insurance and she fell--hard--on her ass? Good times.
Was it ever confirmed whether Jeana was fired or quit this show?
Breana's husband called the baby "Nugget" which is the word tattooed on the inside of Rapey Eyes' lower lip. He said he got the tattoo to remember his gf's miscarriage.
I wonder if Breana's husband knows that.
Did anyone see that UFO at 0:33 (on Tivo) after Gretchen and Tamra left the party and at one point they show the limo driving on the freeway, some fast moving object comes from the right side of the screen.
Victoria was in bed with another woman? If anyone could be a lesbian, it's her. No wonder that stud Don didn't get what he needed.
Is there an OC thread? Forget Vicki's face, that trailer ho Tamra looked freakish on WWHL last night. Same with that Dr. V. Neither of their faces moved once.
Her "fiancee" Eddie likes the mansex, yes?
What is everyone's take on the new househusband Doug?
Someone did start a new thread last week r62, but it looks like it's locked up today. I got the 'thread doesn't exist' message.
And there was some speculation on there about the new guy being gay, r63.
Doug has a better body that queen Eddina.
How ridiculous is it that webby can't just delete a post she has to delete entire threads? Welcome to the 20th century!
"Vicki's face doesn't look bad, she looks okay facially. "
Are you kidding, have you seen a side shot of her....huge chin, no lower teeth, she's a mess.
[R66] After posting here daily for 3 months, I just experienced my first "removed" post. I have spent more than a few minutes scratching my head as to why, and the only thing I can come up with is that I spoke of a deceased model/actress as having the lower body of Shaq.
Could you possibly take a moment to enlighten me as to any absolute no no's re: posting??
Or if that would be an onerous task, could you tell me if there are any angry Lesbian webmasters?
Hilarious SWF! If you stick around (and I hope you choose to), you'll learn that the whims of whatever webmaster the site has are very arbitrary. And there are never explanations for why things are deleted.
And it doesn't matter if you are a paying member of the site or not. Single posts will go missing, but more often whole threads disappear without notice.
For the most part the censorship happens after the fact, but there are a select few things that will either auto-correct right away, or cause the initial post to be rejected. But of course none of them are listed or posted anywhere. Guess that's too much to ask for on this site.
The only one I can think of right now is the word "eff-emin-ate" which when typed without the hyphens will auto-correct to some silly comment. There are only a small handful of others....I wish I could think of them now, but I'm blanking.
Anyway, that's how it goes. There is nowhere here to leave feedback for the site masters, so the users don't have any recourse.
Like I said though, hopefully you'll stick around cause you have had some good comments on the couple of threads where I recognize your moniker from.
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer!
You explained it perfectly. I am a paying member and I never use any wording which is intended to wound another DL'er EVER. But, I thought that celebrity-dom was more or less an accepted target rich environment for pot shots.
Oh heck, it could be something as simple such as webby had a crush on Margaux Hemingway as a young teen and didn't care for the comment. Her sister Mariel IS a Lesbian icon for the film "Personal Best".
[quote] I am a paying member and I never use any wording which is intended to wound another DL'er EVER.
Well you are a better woman than most people who use DL. HaHaHa
I applaud you and I hope you are able to maintain that.
It's so easy for folks to hide behind the security of anonymity of this site that some of the worst names and language imaginable gets used against each other here...sometimes. And the majority of it is not edited or censored.
Anyway, welcome. And I hope perhaps some of the camaraderie here keeps you from that looming breakdown.
I figured you bitches would love Doug, especially when he stopped to do some quick pullups.
Doug, Eddie, and even slimy Slade are attractive, unlike that fug Mauricio on RHOBH or those roided goiters on RHONJ.
I'm LoL'ing so much every time they show Lydia's face when the other women fight. Because of her big eyes and teeth she always looks in massive shock.
Eddie cannot be straight.
Lydia looks like a little monkey. I think her husband might be a tad gay. More so than Eddie.
Victoria looked better when she was on WWHL. However, the chin implant was a mistake, she still looks like a muppet. In hi-def her skin looks like hell too.
What is up with Lydia's teefs?! Couldnt she get those things filed down?
Agree husband is gay.
I don't know what's sadder. The people who wash their dirty linen on these stupid reality shows, or the people sitting at home following every move these losers make.
Lydia seems kind of sweet. Did anyone see the last episode where Victoria's hideous family comes in from Chicago. They were saying how feminine the men in Cali our and then threw Eddie's name in there too. The brother kind of pinged too so maybe he's knows what he speaks.
Lydia needs a new hairstyle. She's too old for hair that big or long, and it just makes her Tarsier-eyes and her teeth look bigger than they are.
And her husband and his pull-ups? Ha!
What the fuck is up with them calling their Orange County-specific magazine Beverly Hills Lifestyle?
R56 Yes, I felt bad for Vicki too because, yes, being so outspoken and demanding, she deserves what flack she gets back from others BUT no one deserves to be called "Miss Piggy" like Slade did.
Apparently, Slade himself took offense that people thought of him as a slacker/freeloader (he was probably jealous of Vicki's workaholic nature too)as the new season seems to keep pointing out that Slade is this big radio DJ now.
I had to laugh when Gretchen at home without Slade was trying to figure out how to use their coffee maker and Slade on the phone is all like she's interrupting his serious hard work. Are you kidding me? The guy may have looks, but that's it!
You would all do that hot piece of ass Doug.
Get the focus back on me and my hot-to-death bi-curious son, or I'll cut a bitch.
Victoria's son Michael looked extremely hot last night. He sure like to show off those guns. Extremely handsome too. I guess if you got it, flaunt it. He pings a bit. So does Vicki's brother. I hope the nephew troll is watching and dreaming up sizzling scenarios for Michael and his uncle Billy.
Victoria would like to thank all of you for your love and support.
[R86] He is a beauty, and I believe that he is gay and dumb as a bock of hair. His bordering on psychotic hatred of his mother and his ill treatment of other women speaks volumes.
Are any of you old enough to remember Jeana Thomasina in the ZZ Top trilogy of videos which began with "She's Got Legs"? They always featured the "magic" car with the keys being flipped around. She was quite the hottie. I wanted to be her back then.
A beauty, really? Jesus the standards are really low on this board.
