“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Vicki Gunvalson may have thought that having her own vodka line was a brilliant idea last year when she started the line with her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers and another business partner, but it sounds like the only good thing that has come out of it is the bacon-flavored drink. It seems to have been nothing but lawsuits and drama. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Sept. 11, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Vicki Gunvalson is now being sued again because she wants to end the business.
Apparently, Vicki's Vodka co-owner Robert Williamson III is suing Gunvalson again for fraud, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith dealings, misrepresentation, and unjustly enriching herself and intentionally inflicting emotional distress on him. That might not be something that she can talk her way out of it. However, after settling the first lawsuit back in July, Williamson reveals that Gunvalson didn't stay true to her word.
The new lawsuit alleges that "almost immediately following the dismissal of Vicki from the federal litigation, Vicki disregarded the settlement agreement and breached the same." However, her lawyer says that her business partner is just upset because she wants to end the business deal. “This lawsuit arises from the business decision of Ms. Gunvalson and her business partner, Michael Nicholson, an expert in blending and selling distilled spirits, to terminate the Vicki’s Vodka brand,” her attorney says. “Their decision resulted from their ongoing dissatisfaction with the business practices and bullying conduct of their other business partner, who is a professional gambler in Las Vegas and the plaintiff in the case," the lawyer adds. "He wants to continue the project; they do not."
Of course, he wants to continue because he can benefit from her Bravo platform. She probably wants out because this scandal can affect her image. What do you think?
