The Real Housewives have been known to sling a few insults, but the latest, lowest dig comes from one of the male cast members: In one recent episode, Real Housewife of Orange County Gretchen Rossi’s fiancé Slade Smiley called Vicki Gunvalson “Tupperware face,” and said she looks like a man … or a muppet. Now, in a promo clip for an upcoming episode, Vicki strikes back.
“Number one, you have been making fun of me for my looks,” Vicki tells Slade in the clip. “I am proud of who I am, what I look like. I did get a tweaking. I’m not Mrs. Tupperware. I’m not plastic. The fact of the matter is when you make fun of a woman’s looks, it’s disrespectful and I found it very hurtful.”
She continues, “…At the end of the day, I think I’m better, beautiful, just like my home. I renovated my home. I renovated my life to be the best that I can be and I’m going to keep striving to be the best that I can be.”
In fact, trying to prove her good intentions, Vicki then hands Slade the first bottle of her new vodka as a gift. But he’s not done talking smack.
“You make just as many accusations,” he tells Vicki. “You make them about my character.”
And in the clip’s most shocking moment, Slade spits, “Don’t keep putting yourself in the woman category all the time. I don’t attack women. You should put away your penis, quit being a dick, and maybe someone would treat you like a woman.”
Watch the clip here, and see the full episode Monday at 9/8 central on Bravo.
