Real Housewives of Orange County: Why Vicki Gunvaison Filed for Divorce


This should come as no surprise, but Vicki Gunvaison of the Real Housewives of Orange County has filed for divorce from her husband Donn Gunvaison. The one surprise? That it didn’t happen sooner.

Vicki was always impatient, impartial and pretty immature when it came to dealing with her husband of many  years. Even other housewives found her treatment of Donn as demeaning, most notably Jeana Keough who always came to Donn’s defense.

During the last season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, it very much seemed that a divorce would be in their future. But then they surprised us all as trying to ‘work things out’ with a wedding renewal ceremony, but it seemed more like a way to get a free Mexican vacation paid by Bravo.

In her bio on Bravo it said that during the last season, “she can truly shift her attention to her marriage to Donn, who has always been so patient and kind to his rambunctious wife. Viewers will see their marriage mature as they become far more tolerant and appreciative of one another.” But it looks like they couldn’t tolerate or appreciate each other any longer!

Are you surprised to hear of their split?
