'RHOC' Vicki Gunvalson Reveals Why Her Kids Did Not Visit Her After Terrifying ATV Crash

Real Housewives of Orange County veteran, Vicki Gunvalson, has shut down Kill All Cancer, three weeks after it was announced that she had joined with a longtime friend to kick off the cancer charity. Vicki explained her decision over the weekend. 

“I just shut it down because there was a lot of naysayers out there. I’m not going to do something that’s going to be criticized when I did it from a good place,” Vicki tells Entertainment Tonight. “And it wasn’t my charity. I was just a spokesperson for it. So it wasn’t mine.”

Vicki spent all of last season defending her now former boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, from her co-stars’ accusations, that he was faking cancer. Brooks eventually admitted to faking medical documents to prove his case, but Vicki has always maintained that she had no knowledge of his lie. Vicki spoke out about joining the charity effort earlier in the OC season.

“Cancer obviously was very relevant in my life last year. People tried to label me as in on a whole fake cancer scheme. What are they going to do? Criticize me for opening a charity to try and help find a cure?” Vicki said.  “Working with a cancer charity will prove the naysayers out there who said I was in on something or that I lied that I’ve got nothing to hide. Period.”

It is no secret that the charity was set up with an insurance component, and Vicki explained that aspect of the project as well.

“This ‘Kill All Cancer’ policy will be something people will buy, and then if they ever got sick, this will help people get back on their feet again,” Vicki explained. “This is up my wheelhouse – I’m all about insurance, I’m all about charities, so I’m all in.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights, on Bravo.
