Vicki Gunvalson Needs to Back Off the 'Real Housewives of Orange County' Newbie

Vicki Gunvalson, the OG of the OC Housewives, has rarely ever taken kindly to new castmembers, but Vicki's attack on latest addition Meghan King Edmonds is all kinds of ridiculous.


On Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki took Meghan to task for not bringing anything to her marriage financially, pretty much asserting the 30-year-old is nothing but a gold digger.

Completely offended, and rightfully so, Meghan tried to defend herself by explaining she cares for her 17-year-old stepdaughter while her husband tends to business in St. Louis. Needless to say, this didn't fly with Vicki, because nothing flies with Vicki unless you're living life exactly according to her rules.

In the past I've agreed with some of Vicki's rants. Certainly she was right about Tamra needing to ditch her ex-husband Simon, and in a lot of ways she was correct to encourage Gretchen to make sure Slade had his finances and overall act together before committing to marry him. But then there are the times when she's just plain mean.

There's a time and a place for everything, and maybe slamming your new castmate about her life choices while on a girls' trip to Tahiti doesn't qualify. Not to mention, Vicki has only recently met Meghan. Personally I'm less inclined to take advice from a meddling stranger than I would from my actual, close girlfriends. My guess is that if there really are problems in Meghan's household, the people closest to her are already pointing it out. So you can take your judginess elsewhere, Vic.

Then again, as previously mentioned, Vicki is the OG of the OC, so clearly she knows what to say and do to stick around for so many seasons. Maybe we could actually all learn a few things.
