Vicki Gunvalson claps back at Tamra Judge amid her comments about the cancer charity program unveiled last week on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
During the episode, Vicki met with other insurance agents and her son Michael to discuss their charity Kill All Cancer.
In addition to starting a charity, Vicki and the group also discussed selling cancer insurance policies. Tamra commented in her Bravo blog,
“Am I the only one that doesn’t know what to think about Vicki starting an insurance for cancer patients?”
Many fans seemed concerned this charity had more to do with helping Vicki’s image, than helping people with cancer. And Tamra agreed. Tamra wrote,
“The way it was explained was more about making money and convincing people she had nothing to do with Brooks cancer scam.”
Vicky spoke to Radar Online and made clear that all donations made will go to charity.
“Any money donated goes directly to a 501c3 nonprofit charity or foundation. Kill All Cancer does not receive any of that money.” Vicki tells Radar Online.
The question is, where does the money eventually go? Vicki didn’t elaborate, only saying she wanted to “fight this horrible disease.”
“Everyone involved has invested their own time, energy and money to make sure we could create a transparent yet valuable organization to help fight this horrible disease,” Vicki said.
Vicki elaborates more about what drove her to become involved in the ‘Kill All Cancer’ charity in her Bravo blog. She wrote,
“The reason why I entered in the insurance industry at 29 years old, was because I wanted to help people and to be able to support my two children as a single mother. That same passion for helping and guiding people is the reason why I chose to become involved with the Kill All Cancer charity.”
“I was approached by a team of professionals to make a difference in people’s lives through insurance products, donations, and to be part of a charity that can help people who are suffering from cancer. I’ve lost so many friends and family members from all different types of cancer and will fight for the cause and a cure. With my platform, you people reading this, and my friends, the best way to turn a negative into a positive for me is to use my voice and make a difference. #killallcancer”
