Vicki Gunvalson talks about snub from ‘RHOBH’ cast

Gunvalson left RHOC after 14 seasons on the Bravo reality series. The insurance maven had been reduced to a “friend of” role during her last season and was reportedly not asked back as a full-time cast member. Despite leaving the franchise, Gunvalson was one of the first recognizable stars of The Real Housewives world and she always reminds people of that.

In a recent interview, Gunvalson talked about Andy Cohen’s baby shower where all the current housewives gathered for an all-star celebration. Gunvalson explained that she didn’t have a good experience with the ladies from RHOBH.

“I don’t really socialize with the Beverly Hills ladies,” Gunvalson said on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “I think they think that we’re Orange County and they’re Beverly Hills. And you know, I think there’s a little bit of, ‘Go away, girls.’ I feel that from them that they think they’re above us. I mean, I wouldn’t live in Beverly Hills if you paid me. I love my Orange County.”

It was what Gunvalson said next that left a sting on many of the housewives she was throwing under the bus.

“They wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for me starting this damn thing,” Gunvalson said.

Vicki Gunvalson talks about Lisa Rinna and she claps back

Going deeper into the conversation, Gunvalson pointed out one particular housewife from RHOBH that was doing the most. Gunvalson called out Rinna for being extra at Cohen’s baby shower.

“I just felt looked down on, you know, she’s up on the tables, dancing,” Gunvalson explained. “I’m like, why? This is Andy’s baby shower. [Do] you want attention? I just sat back going, wow, this is a little messed up. Everybody was having fun. But you just see it from a different perspective when you’re not on anymore.” 

After the many reports on Gunvalson’s experience with Rinna and the RHOBH cast, the latter clapped back with a hilarious meme. The Veronica Mars alum shared two side by side photos of herself.

“Before Vicki / After Vicki,” Rinna caption.

The picture on the left shows Rinna as her younger self and the picture on the right shows her all glammed up. Rinna posted a “glow up” mocking the fact that Gunvalson said it was because of her all of the current Real Housewives had a job.

There’s no one better at throwing shade than Rinna and she knows how to work it. The meme has garnered a lot of attention from The Real Housewives fans applauding her meme game. Kathy Hilton, set to join the cast of RHOBH as a “friend of” in season 11, was one of the many celebrities that replied supporting Rinna’s post.
