‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ review: Vicki Gulvalson’s daughter drama

How is Vicki holding up?

Even though Vicki Gunvalson learned last week on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” that her daughter Briana had surprisingly eloped with her boyfriend while in Las Vegas, it’s fair to say that it more than carried over to everything that happened this time around — even to the point where most of the other stories paled in comparison.

Vicki’s reaction was still one of pure shock, but she also did something that was more than a little bit surprising — actually reveal the news in the middle of a business meeting with no real lead-up to it at all. Shouldn’t Briana be the one to really make this announcement? Probably, but the emotions look to have gotten the better of her in this particular situation.

As if this situation was not strange enough, we also saw Vicki and her boyfriend do just about everything within their power to be one big happy family with her children — who, based on our estimations, were really not ready for this to happen just yet.

Really, the only other major event that happened this episode from our standing was seeing Slade Smiley open up to Gretchen Rossi’s father about his desire to tie the knot soon — only for this to be more or less thrown back at him with some words about getting his finances together before making any decisions when it comes to marriage.

Do you think that Vicki is handling the issue of her daughter’s sudden marriage the right way — or is there really a right way to handle it? While we feel for her, it’s hard to deny that the continued drama is keeping this fantastic season going strong.
