"Whoop it up" with this inside info about the OG of the OC!

RHOC star Vicki Gunvalson sure knows how to "whoop it up" and long for a full "love tank," but aside from her "stand by your man" mantra, how much do you really know about the Bravo OG?

She's been on the show since it began, so we've seen a lot of the California lady's antics on the small screen, but every Housewife has her secrets.

Here are 10 unusual and interesting facts about the blond and bold grandma that will have you reeling more than hearing about a fake cancer diagnosis. Brooks, you may want to click to another page.

Face Fix

As per Fame 10, Vicki had some plastic surgery on her face because she "never felt pretty enough." She had a nose job, a chin implant, and body fat injected into her face to reduce the look of wrinkles. She had all this work done prior to season 7 of the reality show. Seeing oneself on screen week after week can steer a Housewife towards the nearest surgeon's office!

She Didn't Want Brooks on the Show

Not only did Vicki lose many friends on the show thanks to her lying ex, Brooks, but she almost lost a hunk of her paycheck too if she didn't agree to have him on the show with her, according to Celebrity Toob. Money beats common sense in her case, since her daughter hated the smug sneak and Vicki ended up with no man in the end. She should have dumped the chump and found a sweeter suitor to star alongside her.

Fattest Check

Famous Birthdays also tells us that Vicki is paid the most out of her cast mates. Surely the other ladies aren't pleased, but if a bigger check means a relationship with a lying snake, they'll no doubt count their blessings (and slightly smaller paychecks).

Party of Five

Two Ex-Hubbies

We know that Vicki is always looking for love, so perhaps the third time will be a charm for the lovesick lady. Richest Celebrities tells us that Vicki was married to Donn Gunvalson from 1994-2014 and Michael J. Wolfsmith from 1983-1991. Perhaps she should stay single and continue to mingle. Marriage ain't for everyone.

Reality TV Broke Up Her Marriage

According to Celebrity Toob, Vicki Claims that RHOC broke up her second marriage due to the pressure and stress of being filmed constantly. While there is that "reality TV curse" many talk about, she can't blame the show itself. She's the one who agreed to air her dirty laundry for curious viewers everywhere. Maybe it was Andy Cohen's fault for coercing her into it in the first place!

Vicki Gunvalson Proves Denial Ain’t Just A River In Egypt

Denial...or liar liar pants on fire? You decide!

Vicki Gunvalson Brooks cancer denial continues, because, Vicki Gunvalson peeps! You didn't think she was just gonna 'fess up and move on did you?

Ah, Vicki Gunvalson—the delusional gift that just keeps on giving.

Gunvalson has been front and center of a truly bizarre and despicable reality TV plot line over the past year.

Sadly, however, it wasn't not just for the cameras though—it was only too real, for once.

As Popdust previously reported, Gunvalson's now ex-boyfriend, the super creepy Brooks Ayers, faked cancer treatments as a way to try and garner sympathy from the 53-year-old.

Ayers insists that he DOES actually have cancer—but, quite frankly, at this point nobody believes him,

Gunvalson's fellow housewives were quick to see through creepy Brooks' ruse—and it caused many a wine-addled fight during last season's RHOC.

Gunvalson stood by her creepy man throughout, and butted heavily-Botoxed heads with all of her costars over the issue.

She's since come out and admitted that she was “duped" by the creepster—and it's transpired that she was lying herself throughout the farce, also for purposes of sympathy apparently.

However, despite coming (semi) clean, in true Vicki Gunvalson form, she's still heavily in denial about the whole sorry state of affairs.

Well, in denial, or continuing to lie through her teeth—you decide.

On last night's episode, Gunvalson attempted to mend bridges with longtime friend, Tamra Judge.

The two went at several times last season over creepy Brooks, and have not been on friendly terms since.

Gunvalson and Judge came face to face at a beach party thrown by RHOC newbie, Kelly Dodd.

Here's how it went down:

Gunvalson:

I'm sorry. Will you forgive me? I went about it the wrong way. I want to be us again.

Judge:

I just find it really hard to believe that you live in the same house with a guy. I mean, you would know if somebody had stage 3 cancer like that. Be honest, Vicki.

Gunvalson:

I never knew. I wasn't lying for him. I didn't know that he was lying to me. My love for Brooks was blind. Maybe I should have known better, but I didn't. I believed my man that I loved. Period.

Judge:

Honestly, I don't believe that.

Gunvalson:

This is my truth. My truth is that I believed Brooks. I believed Brooks had cancer and I believe all you guys were in on trying to bring him down. And that was hard. Because you didn't like him.

Judge:

I don't like him! He is a piece of shit. Why don't you just come to your friends and say 'I'm sorry – I screwed up?' We would all hug you and say it's okay.

Vicki Gunvalson, admit she screwed up? Hahaha, not in your life time Tamra Judge!

Gunvalson:

I think you in particular should have really been there for me. I don't think you were. I think you kind of turned a little bit on me. You didn't turn on me, you turned away from me when I needed you the most. You don't care. My relationship fell apart of me in front of my eyes. You guys have no clue what I've been through.

Judge:

I was worried for you. We loved you and cared about you. You never once came to me and said I'm so sorry. All the shit that that guy had put you through, all the lies that have been exposed, and you chose him over us? Did you ever think you're a little bit stubborn?

Gunvalson:

I for sure am. I'll admit that. You were right. What I did wrong is not really believing that all you guys were seeing something I didn't see.

Judge really wasn't buying Gunvalson lame-ass pseudo apology however.

In a later on-camera confessional, the savvy 48-year-old branded Gunvalson "the older sister that you don't want" and "a true narcissist."

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Judge also called Gunvalson's story, "a hamster wheel of bullshit."

"I think Vicki will never ever admit she knew he was faking," she concluded.

“This is why Vicki has a hard time making friends."

Preach sister, preach.

How much is Vicki Gunvalson worth money wise? Quite the pretty penny it turns out...

Real Housewives of Orange County reality star, Vicki Gunvalson is certainly no run-of-the-mill, sit at home, Bon Bons-poppin’ type of housewife.

This sassy, brassy, lass is a hard worker and bring home the bacon kinda’ momma.

Here’s how the “whoop it up” blonde Bravo-lebrity makes her living…

While most of what we see on TV is cat fighting, vacationing, and (heavy) drinking, Vicki is actually the owner and operator of a successful insurance and financial services company, Coto, as per The Richest.

In fact, she not only has a California location, but her company has expanded across the country to Washington and Atlanta.

Look out NeNe, another rich bitch is coming your way!

Vicki’s earned a pretty penny doing what she’s so talented at and her business seems to be thriving.

Too bad the same can’t be said for her tumultuous relationship with the ever-shady, “does he or doesn’t he?” have cancer, Brooks.

Vicki makes a whopping wad as the original Housewife of the OC.

According to The Richest, in 2014, she pocketed $500,000 per season!

This show’s been on for years and continues to score high ratings.

Along with her money per season, there are related red carpet events, interviews, photo shoots, appearances, etc. which all add many juicy cherries on top of her cha-ching paycheck.

Along with her antics showing her real colors on the small screen, Ms. Gunvalson’s written two successful books, is a mom of two grown children, and is a grandmother of two as well.

While her romantic relationships seem to disappear faster than a bottle of wine on a reality show set, Vicki’s wallet gets fatter and fatter every year. OC must stand for overabundance of cash!

So, how much is Vicki Gunvalson worth money wise?

Vicki Gunvalson is worth $7 Million as per Celebrity Net Worth.

Being the “OG of the OC” surely pads a Gucci wallet nicely!

vicki gunvalson tamra judge accident

Real Housewives favorites Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge were rushed to hospital over the weekend after being involved in a four wheeler accident in the Californian desert.

The RHOC stars were filming a trip to The Algodones Dunes in Glamis, approximately 200 miles South East of Orange County, and were sharing a Polaris RZR dune buggy on Saturday when it went out of control and rolled several times.

A buggy similar to the one the ladies were in at the time of the accident.

Vicki was airlifted to a nearby hospital and kept in overnight for observation before being eventually released on Sunday morning with no major injuries. Tamra was also hospitalized but released on Saturday. Apparently the hospital visits were mostly cautious and neither of the ladies were in any grave danger.

According to TMZ, Tamra was behind the wheel with the camera crew in the vehicle taping a segment when the accident happened.  Tamra confirmed this in a Facebook post adding that she feels incredibly guilty and lucky to be alive.

"We are both beat up but very lucky to be alive. I've never been so scared in my life. As the driver I have an overwhelming amount of guilt and just happy that the 4 of us are alive."

Vicki echoed her sentiment adding that she feels her late mother was their guardian angel.  She quipped that maybe a spa day may be a better choice for the next trip and shared a photo of her rescue helicopter.

The trip was to celebrate Tamra's husband, Eddie's 43rd birthday and they were joined by Tamra's son Ryan and granddaughter Ava for the filming of the 11th season. Bravo haven't said whether footage of the accident will be included in the show, so I guess we'll just have to tune in when it airs later on this year!

Proving she’s finally over that creepy Brooks dude, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson is getting hot and heavy with Arizona cowboy Jack Losey.

And, although the couple is vowing to take things slowly, a source close to the 53-year-old reality star tells Popdust exclusively that Gunvalson’s friends have a very good feeling about her budding new romance.

“I haven’t seen Vicki this happy in a very long time,” the source says. “She’s positively giddy like a schoolgirl. Jack is a real gentleman and treats her so well.

“They’ve been friends for years, and there was an instant connection when they met, but at the time Vicki was going through her divorce from Don, so she wasn’t in the right head space to start dating at that point—and then she met Brooks.

“But now, she’s definitely open and ready for love, and after the drama and disaster of her relationship with Brooks, Jack is just the tonic she really needs right now.

“He’s fun and sweet, a great dad, honest and nice, and he has no desire to become any kind of reality star—he’s very happy to allow Vicki to be the center of attention, which she loves.

“Everyone is super excited for her and praying this is the one.”

Love on the interweb

Gunvalson certainly looks like she’s enjoying every minute with her new man.

She instagrammed photos of her and Jack hanging out together at the weekend—along with a composite pic of when they first met back in 2011, and them now.

How time flies

“Ran across these pictures of Jack and I from Feb. 2011 when we first met. My how time flies," she captioned the pic, adding the hashtags #countryboy , #handlebarjs , #lifeisfunnysometimes

Well, Vicki's life now certainly looks a damn sight funnier than it was when she was with creepy Brooks.

As Popdust previously reported, their relationship ended on a decidedly sour note after Gunvalson came to the realization that Ayers had been faking his cancer treatment, and perhaps even his cancer diagnosis—presumably in an attempt to stay in her life, and in front of the TV cameras.

They finally split for good last August, and Gunvalson left the world in no doubt about her feelings when it comes to her creepy ex.
