We’re only a couple episodes into the new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and it’s already obvious that cast mates aren’t over the whole Brooks Ayers cancer scheme.
Need proof? Just ask Vicki Gunvalson, as her cast members are still leery about the whole situation.
However, if anything can bring Vicki and her #RHOC crew together, it’s the fact that they all have something in common: they almost died.
In case you don’t remember, Vicki, as well as Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge were involved in a dune buggy accident, which was actually caught on camera during one of the vacation segments. This is what Vicki had to say about those segments in particular:
Put a camera on me, and put me on a trip, and you know something’s going to happen.
That may be the case, as Vicki is definitely an entertaining person, but I highly doubt she had an accident in mind when she said that.
We had helmets on, but it was really scary. I’ve never rolled anything in my life. Bucket list checked. I’m done.
I don’t necessarily think that should be an item on anyone’s bucket list, unless you’re a stunt person. However, there’s no doubt that it was a scary experience, and one that she’s lucky enough to be able to talk about to this day.
Even though she did survive, Vicki admits that she was prepared for the worst:
I really believed that when I was laying there in the helicopter ride over to the hospital by myself, I really kind of felt this wasn’t my time, but I was prepared to go. I’ve accomplished a great life. I have two great kids, I have two great grandkids, I have a great business. I kind of just thought like, ‘If this is my time, I’m good. But once I realized that I wasn’t paralyzed and I was going to be OK, I just thought, ‘I’m gonna be OK. I got a second chance.’
And we’re glad you made it out okay, Vicki!
However, we’re not so sure she’s going to get a second chance with her cast mates after the whole Brooks Ayers debacle. If a life-threatening accident can bring everyone together — what can?
