There is an RHOC mutiny afoot, and Vicki Gunvalson’s only ally is someone who isn’t even part of the franchise anymore.
Meghan Edmonds went off on Gunvalson to People, stooping to name-calling when describing her past and future relationship with her costar.
“I don’t consider Vicki a friend. I’ve never filmed with just her,” Edmonds said. “I think she is a filthy liar who plays the victim, and I refuse to ever willingly associate myself with that.
“I care too much about my reputation than to tarnish it by pretending to be friends with a reality television actress,” Edmonds added. “I bring real stories to… Housewives and I won’t sink to the level of associating with fakeness.”
The “fakeness” she is referring to is probably Gunvalson’s bombshell revelation during the reunion show that she not only no longer believes that her ex, Brooks Ayers, has cancer, but that she aided and abetted his deceit by lying to her costars about asking Heather Dubrow’s doctor husband to help treat the disease.
Edmonds isn’t the only Housewife sick of her shenanigans. Shannon Beador said she no longer wants to film with Gunvalson because it would damage her reputation.
“I think when someone comes into a reality show fabricating their reality, it damages my authenticity and my credibility,” Beador said during Dubrow’s PodcastOne show, Heather Dubrow’s World.
Gunvalson does have one defender, though: Brandi Glanville. “I just though she got a bad rap,” she told People.
“Without her and Brooks this season, they wouldn’t have had a storyline, and now they’re saying they don’t want to shoot with her? It disgusts me!
“She fell in love with the wrong guy. She believed him. She trusted him. She was lonely,” added Glanville. “I get it. I’ve dated the wrong guy, trust me. You want to believe what they say. Maybe in the back of your head you know it’s not true, but maybe you’re so in love or lonely and don’t want to lose that companionship.”
Whether or not Gunvalson will return to RHOC next season remains to be seen, but if not, we would enthusiastically support a new entry to the franchise: Real Housewives Rejects, starring Gunvalson, Glanville and Nene Leakes.
