On last night's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County
, things went from bad to worse
after Gretchen Rossi and Vicki Gunvalson engaged in a screaming match about their significant others' status as deadbeat dads. And as usual, Vicki had plenty left to say on the matter.
Vicki has been calling out Gretchen's boyfriend Slade Smiley for being a deadbeat dad for the last three seasons. Now that she is dating Brooks Ayers, who has had child support issues of his own
, she's clearly changed her tune.
"I felt after watching this week's episode, Gretchen and Slade were both just trying to make a case for their innocence for Slade's past child support issues," she wrote on her Bravo blog. "Fact is, once they found out that Brooks had been arrested for back child support several years ago, they felt it was a way to make Slade look better or equal by bring Brooks into it."
What Vicki is failing to grasp is that this argument, in fact, is not about Brooks at all. It is about her going out of her way to spread rumors and pass judgment on Gretchen's boyfriend for the same issues she is willing to make excuses for when in regard to her own man.
"It's not hypocritical," she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live
last night. "I don't condone any man who doesn't support their children. And the fact of the matter is that Brooks is current and Slade isn't."
Whaaaaa? What does that even mean, Vicki? How can you tell Gretchen that Brooks's child support issues are none of her business when you've made Slade's troubles yours?
"Instead of questioning Brooks directly, they decided to attack me when I was most vulnerable and going through a very rough time in my life," Vicki wrote on her blog. "I guess the saying that some people love kicking you when you're down is true with Slade. Class, integrity, and character are something you cannot buy or wish for... you either have it or you don't and for Slade to do what he did in front of 300 people was disgusting and made me very sad."
Vicki continued to defend herself by saying that Slade making fun of her and Tamra in his comedy show is far worse then her ever calling him a deadbeat dad.
"I don't think anybody should make fun of peoples' looks," she self-righteously said on WWHL
. "I think we are all God's children and we have to love each other whether you're ugly, fat, tall, short. You go in deeper than that. You look at who they are as a person. To me, looks should be off limits."
The whole "we are all God's children" is very sweet, but one thing she included in her blog didn't sound very Christian-like.
"When Tamra and I called Slade a deadbeat dad several years ago, it was because of him bashing us on and off camera and it was our way of getting back to him where it hurt," she wrote.
That's quite the hypocritical statement, considering she's not a hypocrite. Gina PusateriContributing Writer(Image courtesy of Bravo)
