Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson’s emotional scene where her daughter Brianna revealed she’d married in Las Vegas was staged. In the scene, Gunvalson pretended to be shocked when she learned that her daughter had gotten married at a Las Vegas drive through wedding chapel.
Gunvalson, 51 was in fact lying in the staged scene when she acted like she was stunned by the news that Brianna had tied the knot with Ryan Culberson. During the dinner, Brianna told her mother, “This is your son-in-law.”
In response to Brianna’s announcement, Gunvalson replied, “So you didn’t ask me for her hand in marriage? You didn’t think that was important for me to know?” Gunvalson played the upset and hurt role to a tee.
A text message between Vicki Gunvalson and her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers that was recently turned over to RadarOnline revealed that Vicki was preparing to film that scene even though she already knew her daughter Brianna and Ryan were married.”
In the text message, Brooks Ayers asks, “What are y’all filming” in a text he sent on November 2 at 1:40 p.m. Gunvalson’s response was, “Her telling me she’s engaged/married.”
Ayers send another text where he said he was “glad” that Brianna had “decided to film with you tonight.” Anyone with any sense knows that there are staged scenes in these “reality television” shows.
However, the controversy comes from statements that Gunvalson has made in the past where she said that the “show is real and I am always real. It is my reality.”
When confronted with the staging this past June, the Real Housewives of Orange County said that she was “disappointed that someone would say something negative about the show.” Obviously, that someone she is referring to is none other than Brooks Ayers.
This isn’t the only reality television show or Real Housewives franchise for that matter than has been caught “staging scenes.” Real Housewives of New York ladies Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwell were also involved in staged scenes when they were filming in Southhampton.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians is another reality television show that was caught red handed staging scenes as was Jennifer Lopez’s South Beach Tow. Keeping Up with the Kardashians producer, Russell Jay was forced to admit under oath that at least two scenes of the show were “scripted, reshot or edited” in order to portray Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries look like the villain of the show.
