From the gates of Orange County to the Churchill Downs… Vicki Gunvalson is heading down South, y’all! Wetpaint Entertainment hears the Real Housewives of Orange County star will be Woo-Hoo’ing it up at the Kentucky Derby this weekend.
While in town for the races, Vicki’s expected to pop by the Style Icon Luxury Gifting Suite Presented by New Era, where she’ll be able to load up on clothes from New Era, bling from Connor Custom Jewelry and Amanda Burns, teas from The Tealogist, and nuts from Wonderful Pistachios. And instead of mint juleps, she’ll be able to refresh with “POM juleps” by POM Wonderful or bourbon by Woodford Reserve.
Given that boyfriend Brooks Ayers — the guy who’s filling Vicki’s love tank these days — is from the South, it’s no surprise Vicky’s eager to immerse herself in his culture. Earlier this season, Vicki even threw a crawfish dinner for the ladies on the show, saying she got the idea from Brooks’ love of southern cuisine.
“I’m having a great time,” Vicki has said of her new romance. “He’s a Southern gentleman from Mississippi. He’s from the poorest state in the country and I’m from the richest. We’re blending it together and it’s interesting.”
