Vicki Gunvalson And Andy Cohen Hash Out Their RHOC Season 14 Reunion Drama!

Vicki Gunvalson and Andy Cohen opened up about her exit from The Real Housewives of Orange County and the two also discussed the drama that went down between them while filming the Season 14 reunion, which caused Vicki to have a major meltdown.

"The reunion, everyone thinks I went Looney Tunes for no reason," she said to Cohen on her podcast, Whoop It Up with Vicki, according to TooFab. "[Fiance Steve Lodge] was in the dressing room and I said, 'I can't believe they're removing me.' You texted me after saying, 'If I knew you would be so be upset, I would have left you on the couch.' I felt very alienated, I felt very insecure, I felt very sad, but Steve was in the dressing room saying you did everything you could do, shouldn't have probably lost your cool but I couldn't help it.'"

"I was so sensitive to the fact that I was part time. I thought I was going to be on the couch until the very end and we would have fun together," she continued. "Some people, they're like why did you get so upset? People don't know really what happened."

Cohen then shared his reasons as to why he did not include her in certain segments of the reunion, saying, "two things we were talking about that didn't involve you that I thought you were not going to really want to be a part of." He explained that, because of her contentious history with Braunwyn Windham-Burke, he didn't think she would be into talking about her relationship and "all that stuff you felt was not lifting the show up."

The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host also shared that he didn't think Gunvalson would want to be on-set for when Gina Kirschenheiter was asked to discuss the domestic abuse.

"There was a part of me that thought, also, we don't have to put Vicki through this," Cohen told Gunvalson. "I think that was also part of the decision, that I don't know if we ever talked about that. Just so you know. I wish that had gone down differently. The funny thing is Vicki, Bravo, you are such an integral part of everything we've built. Bravo is going to ask you to go to BravoCon and I'm gonna keep asking you to come on 'Watch What Happens Live.'"

Vicki then brought up how Andy "fired" her throughout the interview, before he asked how her children Briana and Michael reacted to her exit from the Bravo hit reality series.

"She actually was sad for me, she knew how much I loved it and she said, 'Mom, I'm sad for you but thank god you have your business, thank god you saved money," Gunvalson said of Briana. "Many people in my situation may have sold their business, then get fired from Housewives like I did -- thank you Andy -- and they don't have anything."

Vicki also revealed that it was a "hard" for her to learn that filming for Season 15 had commended without her not being part of the series. "I don't want to be forgotten," she said. "I'm super sad, I hope the legacy I started will carry on."

Gunvalson and Cohen then opened up about her time on the show. Andy said he thought she was "great" on the series. "The thing I love about you is you actually have not changed," he told her, "You are still the same person you were when you were cast."

"I think it's part of the reason you remained on the show for so long," he told her, according to TooFab. "A lot of people go on the show and they totally change who they are and they become someone different. I think it's good you have remained so organically who you are. Tamra was really good with that too. It might be an Orange County thing, but I think it speaks to your longevity on the show."
