Bravo cameras were rolling, when Real Housewives of Orange County original, Vicki Gunvalson, celebrated her 55th birthday with a blowout party, on Saturday, April 1.
The celebration went down at Vicki’s Coto de Caza home — and AllAboutTheTea.com has all the juicy details!
First thing’s first — who made the guest list, and who got the axe? Insiders report that Vicki’s pal, Kelly Dodd — who was heard buzzing about a possible new set of boobs — and new cast addition, Peggy Sulahian, were in attendance. Returning RHOC-er, Lydia McLaughlin, was also on the guest list — and we’re told that she stuck close to Vicki, in an apparent grab for camera time.
Our source reports that Peggy appeared stand-offish and distant, and did not stay for the entire event.
Flashback cast members, Gretchen Rossi and Lizzie Rovsek were front and center, helping Vicki celebrate her big night. Our insider says that Gretchen is being filmed quite a bit — and that an intriguing alliance appears to be forming between Vicki, Gretchen, and Lizzie.
Vicki’s boyfriend, Steve Lodge, was naturally on the scene, all smiles, and excited to toast the woman of the hour. We hear that the couple is still going strong, and that the relationship continues to grow more serious.
So which ladies didn’t make the cut? Shannon Beador was not invited to the private, friends-only gathering. Vicki appears to be straddling the fence with former cohort, Tamra Judge — because the mouthy Bravoleb was initially invited, but uninvited at the last minute. Vicki labeled Tamra “negative energy,” and ultimately decided to yank back the juicy invite. The other rookie cast member, Brianna Stanko, was not at the event. It is unclear if the newbie was not invited, or just declined.
The real dirt was dished during a raucous round table discussion, between Vicki, Kelly, Gretchen, Lizzie, and another guest, Tamra’s ex-bestie, Ricky Santana. Ricky came to the party with Gretchen, and has been spotted filming various scenes with the ladies. Viewers might remember Ricky from Tamra and Eddie’s wedding special — where he stood up with his best gal-pal, during the ceremony. He later ended his friendship with Tamra after many falling-outs, even admitting and apologizing to Gretchen for taking part in Tamra’s anti-Gretchen antics.
Ricky spilled some scalding hot tea — and Bravo cameras captured every word!
“Ricky told the group that he once accidentally walked in on Eddie having sex with another man,” the source spilled to AllAboutTheTea.com. “The incident occurred after Eddie and Tamra got married. Bravo cameras filmed the entire conversation.”
Gunvalson repeated the longstanding sexuality rumor about Eddie to Kelly, last season. Then Kelly repeated the explosive rumor during the cast trip to Ireland. We’re told Eddie’s sexuality will be the carryover topic in the upcoming season 12.
Happy Birthday to the OG of the OC — and CHEERS to the juicy upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County!
