Vicki Gunvalson's biggest nightmare is about to become a reality: A judge has ruled that documents related to the Real Housewives of Orange County star's vodka line lawsuit will be revealed to the public.
RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that the reality star, 52, and her wayward boyfriend Brooks Ayers requested on September 25 that a Nevada judge enter a protective order preventing "confidential, propriety, or private information" from being exposed.
The normally outspoken blonde and her on again, off again love "are celebrities, and tabloids and other news media have shown an interest in publishing information about their lives," attorneys for the couple argued in court documents. "In fact, certain private and confidential information about them has previously been obtained and published."
The Bravo stars— who were sued by former Vicki's Vodka business partner Robert Williamson III last year for allegedly breaching a settlement agreement— are desperate to protect "all items or information…that are produced or generated in disclosures or responses to discovery in this matter, including deposition testimony," attorneys stated.
But unfortunately for Gunvalson and Ayers, United States Magistrate Judge George Foley Jr. shut down their request, claiming they didn't adequately prove the material needed to stay private.
"It is hereby ordered that proposed Stipulated Protective Order…is denied without prejudice," he declared.
Looks like the California grandmother's dirty laundry will indeed be aired in public.
In September 2013, Radar exclusively revealed that Gunvalson pulled the plug on her Vicki's Vodka brand amid the legal battling.
