'Real Housewives of Orange County' stars Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson have set the bar quite high when it comes to friends-turned-foes. Their equation is unpredictable; it thrives on inconsistencies. One moment they are friends, the next sworn enemies.
Insider gossip suggests that the two stars hug it out at a reunion episode of 'RHOC' (taped on November 8), leaving everyone shocked. “There was a lot of screaming and finger-pointing involved by both. However, everyone was surprised as they hugged at the end of the night,” a source told HollywoodLife.
It's hard to believe that these two were thick friends at one point in time and would support each other no matter what. But, their relationship took a sour turn a while ago and, what's making it worse are the wild allegations made by Gunvalson.
She pushed all the wrong buttons when she commented on Dodd's engagement to Rick Leventhal, whom she dated for three months. Gunvalson said marriage was a huge "undertaking,'' adding that one has to take it slow.
“Marriage is a huge, huge undertaking and a commitment, and she’s been married two times before. I don’t understand the reason why they’re rushing. Is she pregnant? Like, I don’t understand. Take your time, slow down," she told ET Online.
Gunvalson even told Andy Cohen that Dodd's engagement wasn't real and merely manufactured for the show. But, underneath all of this, there could be a genuine concern. Gunvalson believes it could affect Dodd's 13-year-old daughter, Jolie, and her not sharing a solid bond with Leventhal would be a huge issue moving forward. She does have a point, doesn't she?
Will Dodd ever be able to see that Gunvalson may have been snarky with her comments, but she means well? Will their reunion hug be a start to a new friendship? For that, we'll have to wait and watch.
