O.C. 'Real Housewife'

Gets Real Threats

3/30/2009 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0330_vicki_gunvalsoon_ex-1Cops say someone hates one of the "Real Housewives of Orange County" so much, they've actually made threats on her life. 

The Orange County Sheriff's Department is investigating two death threats received by Vicki Gunvalson. We're told sheriffs believe the two threats came from "a fanatical female fan who takes the show way too seriously."

According to Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino, Vicki received one of the threats through a phone call -- and the other through an email sent to another cast member from the show, Jeana Keough. The email told Keough not to worry about Gunvalson because she "would take care of Vicki for her."

An investigation is currently underway.

These "housewives" are NOT typical American women! They are botoxed up the ass, spoiled, money-grubbing, selfish, egotistical bitches. Those who watch them must have had lobotomies or something. The dumming down of America lives on!

My sister and I watch the show and consider it entertainment. I think they try to create situations that will cause talk. Some people take soap operas serious, too. It is just a show but there are a lot of people that are not living in reality.

Sorry, Victoria, but what you cite as an extended version of the 'rule' still doesn't cover all the exceptions. Please see my comment, #34.

This is not a personal attack.

From all the reports I'VE heard ( I know I know... I'm making broad and sweeping generalizations here, obviously) pretty much all of L.A. and Orange County in particular is just chock a block FULL of rich, snooty, conceited , cold, arrogant , heartless, egotistical vain and astoundingly superficial "people", lol! But, in very general terms that's fairly indicative of what's occurs in American society as a whole, really, and one might even say it's a "hallmark" or side effect of modern, Capitalist industrial society.. it just happens to be somewhat "worse' in Orange County because that's like, Ohmigawd! like, Ummmm...so Ground ZERO!!! (saccharine fake smile goes here).

Gross. And yeah anyone who wants to be on television THAT bad needs to have their head examined, Well we already know they're pretty "sick" -at least if you regard excessive materialism and narcissism as an illness. from what I can tell MOST of these people haven't been in touch with "reality" for a VERY long time. When's the last time you worked a ditch-digger and got blisters on your hands for 4*/hour??? Whens' the last time you chose between doing laundry and eating? have any of you spiffy slick folks worked as a dishwasher or been homeless, or SUFFERED at all lately? Well most of us are out here living in a completely different world. It's ONE thing if they're humble and kind and gracious and decent, (and there ARE many good people too, and great philanthropists who actually CARE about humanity) but the snotty arrogant ones deserve no quarter and no sympathy

Vicki is a pig and I'm sick of her pretending she is the only hard working woman in America. It was probably her daughter who threatened to kill her. She would drive anyone to do that with her pathetic, annoying, needy self! Get a life Vicki and get off of my TV you cow!!!

Hans,

Where did you get the idea that most people have worked as ditch-diggers and got blisters on their hands for 4*/hour, choosing between doing laundry and eating, worked as a dishwasher, been homeless, etc.?

Most people (in this country) have worked various jobs in their lifetime, but you make it seem like we are all impoverished and suffering and that it is some sort of honor to be impoverished and living tortured lives.

It’s not an honor to be poor, and it is not an honor or a blessing to be filthy rich either.

You said that “snotty arrogant ones deserve no quarter and no sympathy”…are you talking out of your butt? You know that the “Housewives of Orange County” are getting a lot more than quarters, and you know that you really don’t want any of these women to be murdered by anyone. You talk like you think you have a heart, but do you?

You guys are nimrods, but I adore you. You are nitpicking over the word "received" when it is, in fact, spelled correctly. In Cindy's defense, since she was the first to post, it is possible that the word was spelled incorrectly and then corrected by TMZ after she brought it to their attention.

So you guys need to get off the "received" bandwagon, because the word, as it is in the story right now (as of 7:09 cst), is spelled correctly.

Yet, while you people are going OFF about received, there in the last paragraph is a horrid mistake that TMZ makes CONSTANTLY. Check your AP Stylebook, TMZ. UNDER WAY IS TWO WORDS, NIMRODS.

And I agree that Vicki is a bad lady. She is rude, loud, obnoxious, unkind, acts like she is the only busy person ever on the face of the earth, hateful, spiteful, cold, disrespectful...somebody get me a thesaurus...she is all of those things. She can do all the plastic surgery in the world, it will never make her a beautiful woman, because she is ugly from the inside out. A doctor cannot do anything about that. She thinks she is a good person because of her capacity to love her children - that that, alone, makes her a good and decent person. It doesn't. She sees them as just an extension of herself and that is just more self love.
