Season 8 was a rocky one for the ladies of The Real Housewives of Orange County. There was more drama than ever as everyone set their sights on Gretchen Rossi and many friendships were put to the test — and others were mended (we’re looking at you, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney).

Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Vicki at the Brent Shapiro Foundation Summer Spectacular Saturday night and she dishes about her kids, her current relationship with Gretchen, and the potential for Season 9.

Check out our exclusive interview with the veteran housewife and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Wetpaint Entertainment: Have you been to Bob Shapiro's party before?

Vicki Gunvalson: Actually I haven't. I was invited last year and wasn't able to make it, I was out of town. It's just a situation with his son having that situation. It's around everywhere right now.

How are things going?

Summer was great. We went to Greece and Spain. I took Briana and Troy, my grandson. for two weeks. I just moved my office to a bigger building. I'm just really trying to focus on that getting going with work. It's been good, it's been good to get a break.

Let's see, you're back for next year?

We're in a break right now. Every year, it's a different set of issues. We haven't even been talking about Season 9 yet.

Do you have a good relationship with your daughter Briana?

Bri and I have a really great relationship. I love being a grandmother. He's going to be a year in two more weeks. We're really happy about that. He's a blessing. Ryan is still in Afghanistan, he's coming back in a month or two. We're looking forward to getting him back home.

Why is Briana such a good mom?

Briana, she's very nurturing. She has never had a baby-sitter yet. She's just a hands-on mom. She kind of follows in my footsteps. Bri and I are close, though. It's been good.

Is anyone still friends with Gretchen?

Gretchen and I haven't talked since the reunion. I have no desire! (laughs) Put it that way. I don't know what she's up to. I have no desire.

She's back next year, right?

I don't know. We don't know what's going to happen with Season 9 yet.
