AceShowbiz - The ladies of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" recently gathered to film season 14 reunion. The face-to-face event apparently only escalated the tension between cast members Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd who reportedly "got into the most epic feud during the RHOC reunion."
According to HollywoodLife.com, "It's by far Vicki's best reunion to date. There was a lot of yelling and finger pointing when it came to these ladies, especially." A source claims to the site that the fact that Vicki filing a defamation lawsuit against Kelly using a fake name, Jane Roe, took the front and center during the taping.
Through the lawsuit, Vicki is seeking damages for defamatory statements made by Kelly. Kelly previously called the former "fraud," a "con woman" and that she "preys on older people" and Vicki claimed that the statements hurt not only her but also her Irvine-based business Coto Insurance & Financial Services, Inc.
"The lawsuit infuriated Kelly and it was the first time she saw Vicki since it happened, so naturally, Kelly was angry and there was a lot of name calling on both sides that went on," the insider goes on saying. "Some would argue that she crossed the line with some of the things that came out of her mouth."
"The reunion taped [in Los Angeles] for over 12 hours," the source adds. "It was a long and stressful day by all. Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Kelly went out afterwards to let off some steam. Braunwyn is really staying neutral in the entire Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Vicki versus Kelly drama."
In related news, Vicki doesn't seem to be bothered by the alleged fight. Following the filming, she took to Instagram Stories to share a photo of herself and boyfriend Steve Lodge. "It's a wrap," she wrote. "Season 14 reunion done. Now onto my new projects. Thanks stevelodge_oc for being my rock."
