Vicki Gunvalson has been laying low since "The Real Housewives of Orange County" reunion, and for good reason.
The emotional episode opened up old wounds with her daughter Briana Culberson, and marked the end of her relationship with on/off beau Brooks Ayers. Relive their break-up below:
toofab's Anna Kachikyan caught up with the "RHOC" star at the Brent Shapiro Foundation Summer Spectacular over the weekend and asked how Vicki was doing post-reunion.
"Do I have a tire mark on the back of my dress?" Vicki joked. "I think I'm bloody too," referencing the emotional last episode.
Thankfully, Vicki was able to spend some vacation time with Briana after the reunion.
"Briana and I just got back from Spain and Greece. We were there for two weeks. We took baby Troy."
"We're good," Vicki replied when asked about their relationship. "We don’t agree on a couple of things, but we’re good. She’s my child; she’s got a lot of life ahead of her."
As for Briana's husband Ryan Culberson, the family is looking forward to a reunion.
"Ryan isn’t back yet," Vicki explained. "He'll hopefully will be back in a month. We’ll celebrate him coming back and Troy turning one. It’ll be a good day."
Of course, we had to ask if Vicki had listened to the now infamous taped conversation between Ryan and Brooks, where Brooks told Ryan to hit Briana -- comments Briana was disgusted by.
"I have no desire," Vicki answered when asked if she listened to the tapes. "I know who Brooks is. People get mad, get drunk, people say things they should say, and move past it."
Vicki has at least one supporter. Fellow "O.C." housewife Alexis Bellino was also at the event, and offered this advice.
"I think [Vicki] needs to stay true to herself. Stay strong and [do] what she wants to do with her life. And not listen to the chatter," Alexis replied.
"Stay off the internet," her husband Jim Bellino added.
