Vicki Gunvalson: Negotiating Real Housewives of Orange County Storylines, Product Integration?

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is being accused - by Brooks Ayers - of staging the most recent episode of the show.

Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers

Gunvalson‘s ex-boyfriend admitted to a Las Vegas court this week that his one-time lover negotiated her Season 8 contract to appear on the Bravo show..

In her deal, she required that scenes include Vicki's vodka product, which not coincidentally appeared on the show this week, prominently at that.

While scripted drama on "reality" shows is nothing new, blatant use of the programming to shill for one's side products is taking it to a new level.

According to court papers, she guaranteed her Season 8 contract "would include VV (Vicki’s Vodka) as part of the negotiations and product integration.”

Brooks Ayers' confession about the staged RHOC storyline was part of his response to a lawsuit filed against him relating to the vodka business.

The company alleging he breached his contract, failed to live up to good faith dealings, misrepresented himself and conspired to unjustly enrich himself.

During the staged scenes, Vicki proudly talked about her new business venture and Brooks declared the pair were “going to make a lot of money.”

That product placement was brazenly on display as Brooks and Vicki traveled to California’s Napa Valley to sample her new orange and bacon vodkas.

Yes, bacon vodka. Add that to your cocktail recipes list.

I would not be surprised of anything that Vicki G. would do, she seems like a little girl that never grew up emotionally. She needs help to come over her problems. It isn't everyone else Vicki,it is you
