Vicki Gunvalson's Mother's Day was ruined by a shocking new Real Housewives of Orange County commercial.
Bravo aired the first look at the upcoming 10th season of the original Housewives franchise on Sunday, May 10, ending with a preview of Gunvalson breaking down in hysterics on the phone.
Gunvalson, the only cast member remaining on the show from season one, was filming when she received the worst phone call of her life – news that her beloved mother had passed away. The reality star falls to the ground, weeping as she clutches the phone.

The commercial brought back the painful memory of Joanne Steinmetz's passing, prompting Gunvalson to write on Twitter that it was "the most terrible thing to have to re-live again…Especially on Mother's Day."
Gunvalson, who Andy Cohen called is his favorite Housewife, wrote about her mother's death on February 4.
"Tonight I received a phone call that is every person's worst nightmare. My amazing, beautiful and strong mother passed on and is now with the love of her life my father in heaven. I am who I am today, because of her. An amazing cook, organized, bold personality and had a sense of style and fashion that I adored. I miss you so much mommy! My life will never be the same without you to give me advice and your wisdom. You were so healthy and so vibrant and so beautiful. I still need you. I love you MOM."
