Vicki Gunvalson and Gretchen Rossi had their share of up and downs on their shared years together on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Their friendship low points often revolved around Gretchen’s relationship with Slade Smiley, who once taunted Vicki’s appearance, in a harsh stand-up comedy act. Gretchen left the show after Season 8 — and Vicki wasn’t heartbroken about her departure.
Bravo’s Daily Dish is reporting that things have changed for the better for the OG and Rossi, and Vicki is even admitting that she shouldn’t have questioned the authenticity of Gretchen and Slade’s relationship.
“Gretchen and Slade are still together. They’re still in love,” she said. “So that goes to show you that, you know what, maybe I misspoke saying that their love wasn’t real or so on.”
Vicki recently got together for lunch with Gretchen, cast newbie, Kelly Dodd, and alum, Lizzie Rovsek, and had a ball at the mini OC reunion.
“They invited me, so I thought, why not go?” Vicki said of the lunch. “So we went, and the guys showed up later. We had a great time.”
Vicki explains that she and Gretchen have long moved on from any ill will, but probably won’t hang out much in the future.
“There’s no mending with Gretchen. We’ve moved on from when we’ve filmed together,” Vicki explained. “I don’t have a lot of room in my life for girlfriends. I just don’t. I work full-time, I have my career with Bravo, and I’ve got my personal life. You know, new dating, my daughter, the babies. So if I see the girls every now and then, I’m good with that.”
