All About the Tea_RHOC -Vicki Gunvalson dune buggy accident

What started out as a fun, albeit pukey, trip to Glamis turned upside down on the latest Real Housewives of Orange County episode.

The ladies were all getting along. Kelly Dodd was on her best behavior. And Heather Dubrow rented a very fancy RV to ride out to the desert. But the good times came to an unfortunate end.

Vicki Gunvalson walks us through it.

“When I heard that Tamra wanted to go to Glamis and asked me to go with the ladies, I was ok with it… I had asked my son Mike if he wanted to join me because I didn’t want to go by myself and he said, “Mom, haven’t you heard how many people get hurt and die out there?” He had no desire to go, so I just decided to go by myself.”

And that, kids, is what we call foreshadowing.

“Now onto the accident…when I watched it along just like all of you did, I realized there were so many things that I was unaware of that were happening because I was so “out of it”. I don’t know how Kelly didn’t get more hurt than me when her helmet flew off the way it did.”

Vicki and Kelly had loosened the strap of their helmets, but Vicki maintains they were still secure.

“I have no idea how Kelly’s helmet was thrown off her head without her being injured. She definitely had an angel watching over her.”

At first, it was fun, flying over the dunes. But then:

“When Tamra told us she was going to another area of the dunes called the “bowls”, I had no idea what that meant. When we went over the top of the dune all I could see was huge hills for miles and miles. It was beautiful for a moment, but it also looked very scary.”

Next, came the accident.

“When we went over the top of the dune, it appears that the wheels hit the sand dune side ways and then ended up rolling over and down the hill. I just remember sand flying in my face, loud crunching of metal and all of us screaming and then I had immediate pain in my back and neck. I felt it was happening in slow motion…”

Heather immediately went into medic mode and kept everyone calm. A good thing, because Vicki and Tamra Judge were hurt.

“…I do not remember going into the helicopter, I don’t remember getting the IV morphine drip, I don’t remember asking how badly injured Tamra was and I don’t remember Heather and Kelly watching over me the way that they did. I believe the four of us have a forever bond because of this near death experience…”

Vicki was flown to a hospital close to Meghan Edmonds. When Heather called and relayed the news, Meghan couldn’t have cared less.

“Watching Meghan and Jimmy get the phone call about the accident was sad for me. I was shocked that they didn’t get in their car and head over to the hospital…I have known Jim and Meghan now for almost two years, and Meghan’s choice of not going to be with me because we weren’t “friends” was shocking.”

While Eddie accompanied Tamra to the hospital, Vicki had no one.

“I was scared that I was paralyzed or had permanent neck damage. My neck and back hurt so bad, it was frightening… I had no shoes, no purse and no one with me. I have thought long and hard on this since the accident and if that happened to any one of my “friends” regardless how close we are at the time, I’d be on my way there to be with them.”

Fortunately, Vicki sustained only minor injuries.

“After several CT and MRI scans, I was released about nine hours later and diagnosed with severe concussion and neck injury. I had to take a car service home from the hospital all by myself, late at night with no shoes, no purse and nothing on but hospital scrubs and hospital socks.”

Regardless if you’re a Vicki fan or not, Meghan should have made the effort and shown up with some flowers. But maybe that’s because I’m from the Midwest, and it’s just the way we do things. So, did Meghan do the right thing or should she have postponed her golf game to be by Vicki’s side?
