Vicki Gunvalson on Real Housewives of Orange County: It Destroyed My Family!

by at .

Vicki Gunvalson split from Donn Gunvalson in 2010.

But the wounds are still fresh and the memories are still strong for this Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, who recently opened up about the divorce.

And placed the blame squarely on the program that made her rich and famous.

"There's some really great things that have come from the show," Gunvalson tells Digital Spy. "But one of the downsides was that it broke up my family."

How did the series have "a lot to do" with her relationship falling apart?

"I think it was too much pressure on a weak marriage," she says. "I wonder where Donn and I would be now if we didn't do the show. But we elected to do the show together as a family. Unfortunately, it didn't work out for us."

To her credit, Gunvalson admitted a few months ago that she should have "worked harder" on her marriage, so she isn't solely blaming Bravo cameras for her divorce.

Nor is she alone in this outcome.

Camille Grammar, Adrienne Maloof, Luann De Lesseps, Tamra Barney, Taylor Armstrong and Lynn Curtin have ALL gotten divorced after appearing on one a Housewives franchise.

It's almost as if these women were unstable and spoiled and cared more about attention than a satisfactory relationship.
