With summer here, a new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County is in full swing. Cookie was lucky enough to sit down with the actual "first" Housewife, Vicki Gunvalson along with her business partner in Wines By Wives, Chris Gravagna. Gunvalson talked about her Wines By Wives celebrity wine club, why the gay boys love the Housewives so much and what's next for her in Orange County.
Right off the bat, let me clear something up: This season of "The Real Housewives Of Miami" is nothing like the first season (which incidentally was scheduled to be a different kind of Miami reality show and morphed into a part of the "Housewives" franchise). There have been casting changes with the Larsa Pippen and Christy Rice being removed from the cast (much more suited for "Basketball Wives") and replaced with several new Housewives, including model and "Dancing With The Stars" alum Joanna Krupa (more on that later).
"Vintage store reality show" has been done before, but not quite like Bravo is doing "Dukes Of Melrose". Featuring fashion minded Cameron Silver and business minded Christos Garkinos, they are the "Batman & Robin" of Decades, the premiere "luxury consignment shop" in Hollywood.
