unvalson, 55, also directed followers to Instagram photos of her face showing a pronounced, taped up scar with black stitches on one of her lower cheeks near her lips. It's been a hard Christmas season for Gunvalson as she just sold the Orange County home she bought for her daughter Briana and her family. Briana, her husband, and their kids now live far away from Gunvalson in North Carolina as they try to build a life out of the RHOC spotlight.

Gunvalson was hospitalized during last season's RHOC after a ladies' trip to Iceland. A friend told Radar at the time that Gunvalson was battling high blood pressure.

"Her doctors advised her to relax and minimize stress in her life but those who know Vicki know how hard that is for her. She is always on the go," the insider said. But now, Gunvalson, who has admitted to having plastic surgery, is worried about her TV-ready face because of a pre-Christmas coal in her stocking: cyst removal!
