Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd reportedly got into an "epic feud" while filming the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. The Bravo sit-down was the first time the two ladies have seen each other since Vicki filed — and then withdrew — a defamation lawsuit against Kelly, and it didn't go smoothly.
"Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson got into the most epic feud during the RHOC reunion. It’s by far Vicki’s best reunion to date. There was a lot of yelling and finger pointing when it came to these ladies especially," a source dished to HollywoodLife.com.
The source continued, "The lawsuit infuriated Kelly and it was the first time she saw Vicki since it happened, so naturally, Kelly was angry and there was a lot of name calling on both sides that went on. Some would argue that she Kelly crossed the line with some of the things that came out of her mouth.”
Vicki and Kelly have been at war all season, but things recently reached a breaking point while they were filming an episode in Key West, Florida. Kelly allegedly called Vicki a "fraud" and a "con woman" while the cameras rolled, which prompted Vicki to file a defamation lawsuit against Kelly.
On November 4, Vicki shockingly decided to withdraw her lawsuit against Kelly and the show producers.
On last year's reunion, Vicki accused Kelly of doing cocaine, which she adamantly denied. Vicki also participated in spreading a rumor about Kelly doing a sex "train" during season 14, which Kelly also denied.
Vicki recently spoke about their ongoing feud on The Daily Dish podcast. "I have no desire to be around people that want to hurt me. Zero. If she Kelly wants to hurt me and call me names, call me a pig and all these terrible things — I've never called her names. I've never said she looks like x, y, z. I don't do that. And I don't deserve it. I'm not going to tolerate it. So while she's on the show, we have to all hang out together, but she's not somebody I'm going to seek out in my life at this time in my life," she said.
Vicki hinted that she would not return to the RHOC in a cryptic Instagram post on November 11. "It’s a wrap. Season 14 reunion done. Now onto my new projects. Thanks @stevelodge_oc for being my rock," she wrote.
