Vicki Gunvalson‘s collapse after learning of her mother’s passing was caught on camera and will be featured in the upcoming season 10 of Real Housewives of Orange County.

On Mother’s Day, the folks at Bravo, who love drama, no matter the price, decided to release a trailer of Real Housewives of Orange County.

The 3-minute clip featured the usual screams, catfights, and rumors being spread. However, what stood out, was what is being called the Vicki Gunvalson collapse moment. While in her kitchen and entertaining several guests, Gunvalson received a phone call and during the conversation, she cried and fell to the floor.

The meltdown was caused by a relative, who announced to Gunvalson that her mother had passed away. Back in February, when Vicki Gunvalson’s mom died, she shared the following message:

“Tonight I received a phone call that is every person’s worst nightmare. My amazing, beautiful and strong mother passed on and is now with the love of her life my father in heaven. I am who I am today, because of her. An amazing cook, organized, bold personality and had a sense of style and fashion that I adored. I miss you so much mommy! My life will never be the same without you to give me advice and your wisdom. You were so healthy and so vibrant and so beautiful. I still need you. I love you MOM.”

On Mother’s Day, she took to Instagram where she paid homage to her late mom with a poem by Kirsten Preus.

“If Roses grow in Heaven”

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

Gunvalson, whose on-and-off again boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, is battling cancer, received the following message from a fan, who was disgusted by the clip:

“And they released this commercial on Mother’s Day. This must be heart-wrenching for @vgunvalson. #RHOC.”

Vicki Gunvalson replied by:

“@housewivesglam It’s the most terrible thing to have to re-live again… Especially on Mother’s Day.”

Other people, who were disturbed by the clip, tweeted:

@vgunvalson #I was appalled that Andy let that clip show when it did. So sad Vicki.

@vgunvalson What a terrible decision of Bravo and Evolution to include that moment, let alone on Mother’s day. Horrible timing & no empathy.

    Vicki Gunvalson will do and say anything for ratings. She and Bravo set this up.

  3. Rachel Kreuk says:

    Such a moving poem. the network could have respected such a private and sad moment. RIP Vicki Gunvalson’s mom.

    this was a reenactment of the phone call, it is not real.

    • jessica says:

      so true

    • orqid says:

      I agree there is no way that can be real. Her cry and even that fall looks so fake. If it really video taped her getting the phone call and she didn’t want it in they wouldn’t put it in.

    • vkatzman says:

      I agree. I didn’t observe anyone telling Vicki that she had a phone call. She asked Shannon if she could use her landline and went into another room. I think she made (or pretended to make) a call to her daughter who relayed the bad news. I rewound this segment and watched it twice and was wondering why Vicki hadn’t received a call this important on her cell phone. Later, sitting with the other housewives, Vicki has her cell phone and talks to her brother. I’m sorry for her loss, but I definitely believe that they are all attention seekers and would do anything for ratings.
