To say Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson has an interesting relationship with her ex Donn is putting it mildly.
The two were married for 19 years, but continued to live with each other after they split. “We're [mediating] our divorce," she told Us Weekly at the time. "We still have our finances co-mingled [and] joint accounts." She admitted the situation was “very hard — but the reality is, he's not fighting for me, he's not saying, 'Babe I want you back.' He's saying 'Babe, I wish you well.'"
Though Donn did eventually move out, he and Vicki still haven’t gotten around to divorcing. “We’re still legally married. We’re not finalized yet,” Vicki told HuffPost Live recently.
While she didn’t give any details about what’s dragging out the divorce proceedings, Vicki does seem to think Donn will always be in her life. “We’re good friends,” she says.
As for what went wrong with the marriage, seven years of being on a reality show took its toll. "Donn said, 'Look at all these reality TV stars that are losing their marriages over this,'" Vicki explained on the 100th episode special of RHOC. "He goes, 'I'll be damned if we're gonna be one of them.' And I said, 'Honey, we're never gonna be one of them.' Seven years in, we were one of them."
Vicki admitted she hasn’t seen Donn since January, when the two met with a mediator to discuss the divorce settlement. Maybe it’s time to schedule another sit-down?
