Vicki Gunvalson & Kelly Dodd Had Explosive Fight At RHOC Reunion Over Lawsuit

Would you expect anything else?

After their ugly feud has lasted for an entire season, Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd faced off at The Real Housewives of Orange County's reunion taping on Friday and naturally, things got explosive. If the drama between the two already wasn't bad enough, the OG of the OC suing Kelly for defamation in the last week definitely added even more fuel to the fire.

In case you've been living under a rock, Vicki sued Kelly last week for defamation after she called her a con-woman on an upcoming episode on the show, and also sued Bravo demanding they take her costars comments out of the episode. After Vicki was threatened to be banned from the reunion, she dropped the lawsuit against both her costar and the network.

According to Hollywood Life, the two got into a heated argument during the 12-hour reunion taping that, of course, involved finger-pointing, name-calling and yelling.

Vicki and Kelly have spent the entire season engaged in a toxic tit for tat battle, with the OG of the OC spreading rumors about her costar, while Kelly retaliates by calling her a pig and any other name she can think of, and so on and so forth. Insiders spilled the tea about the reunion to the outlet saying:

“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. 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."

Even though we all know Vicki will never, ever get her orange back after she bit the hand that feeds her, if the Coto Insurance mogul EVER wants to reclaim her role on the show, the reunion was her last chance to bring it and by the sound of things, I think she managed to do that.

There wasn't much other tea about the reunion to go around, however, the sources did reveal while the Tres Amigas all stuck together to fight against Kelly during the 12 hour taping, Braunwyn Windham-Burke managed to stay neutral between both sides and even went out for drinks with the resident cunt caller after filming was done. The source explained:

“It was a long and stressful day by all. Braunwyn and Kelly went out afterwards to let off some steam. Braunwyn is really staying neutral in the entire Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Vicki versus Kelly drama.”

The seating plan is always a massive point of contention between the ladies because everyone wants the chair closest to Andy Cohen, and although all the fans thought season 14 would be a showdown between Tamra and Kelly, Shannon actually managed to snag the seat next to Andy. Who would've thought?

In other reunion news, Shane Simpson appeared for a segment of the taping, evidenced through Andy himself taking to his Instagram story with a video of Emily Simpson's rodent of a husband. I can't wait to shade the fuck out of the human sized turd in my reunion recap.

Bravo also released the women's reunion lewks and it seems the ladies were going for a gold/white/black metallic theme for this sit down and like always the women's outfits are as cohesive as the Simpson's marriage. Take a look at their reunion day gowns below:
