Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has been busy with the next chapter of her life after leaving the Bravo reality series back in January. The OG of the OC was a Bravolebrity for 14 seasons, but now she has moved on to hosting her own podcast and she has a new project in the works with her former co-star Tamra Judge.
Gunvalson wants to hear from her fans and get to know them better as she builds her new, independent brand. Earlier this week, she shared a phone number with her 1.1 million Instagram followers that fans can use to text her messages and questions.
Gunvalson posted a selfie with the words “Let’s Talk! Text me!” underneath the pic, and in the caption she wrote: “Text me! 949-401-7209 ❌⭕️.”
In a separate post, Gunvalson reminded her fans to subscribe to her podcast Whooping It Up with Vicki.
“If you haven’t yet subscribed to my podcast, you’re missing out on all things Housewives, empowering truths about my life, tips for financial freedom, relationship advice and so much more!” wrote Gunvalson. “Just click on the link in my bio 💃🏻 follow my @whoopitupwithvicki page and keep Whooping It Up 💃🏻”
Gunvalson was working on a new project with Judge before everything was shut down due to COVID-19, but the duo says they plan to pave the way for the next step of life after Housewives, just like they paved the way for the Housewives franchise.
During quarantine, Gunvalson has been working from home for her COTO Insurance and Investment firm and dishing out financial advice. She also added a second home to her own portfolio when she purchased a “retirement house” in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Gunvalson recently shared a pic of her and her fiance, Steve Lodge, on their beachfront balcony, with the sun setting over the ocean in the background. In the caption, the former RHOC star said that she forgot to reapply her sunscreen, which left her a little red. But, she did make some new friends at the pool.
Vicki Gunvalson said that her new friends invited her and Lodge to their condo and then out to dinner. She said it was “so great to meet people who have the love for Puerto Vallarta the way we do.”
