The global pandemic continues to ravage all facets of human society.

Some countries around the world are trying to go back to “normal.”

Others are losing citizens faster than they can count at this point.

Expressing such an opinion – in the form of a plea for Governor Gavin Newsom to reopen certain service businesses in California – landed Vicki Gunvalson in some hot water this week.

Allow Gunvalson to explain below – we’re sure she’ll be addressing the matter on her popular Whoop It Up With Vicki podcast, airing on Podcast One, as well – and see if you agree with her:
