The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson defended her plastic surgery and slammed co-stars Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi Monday.
On The Real Housewives of Orange County season premiere, Vicki debuted her “new face” - tweaks to her chin and nose - only to be mocked by Tamra and Gretchen.
Barney and Rossi felt the look "was too masculine."
So when a fan called in to Watch What Happens Live afterward asking what Vicki thought of Tamra and Gretchen’s friendship, the 51-year-old mother of two went off:
“It’s so fake! It’s crazy. Oh my God, it’s so fake. It’s very fake!"
“It’s crazy, they're so fake. I think they just did it to bug me.”
Gunvalson said she's happy with the alterations, despite the backlash, and was up front about not only the fact that she went under the knife but the reason.
Vicki, who was likened to Miss Piggy by Slade Smiley during his standup routine in the past, said she got the plastic surgery to build up her self-esteem.
Barney didn't respond in the way she might have hoped.
“So seriously, I have to show you something,” Tamra said to Gretchen during the premiere. “I just want you to look at this picture and tell me what you think.”
“Look at the chin! Look at the nose!” Gretchen exclaimed.
Look for more tension on next week's episode, too!
