5 PM PT – Vicki's lawyer has just notified us that they intend to dismiss the lawsuit against NBCUniversal and Bravo. Good news for the networks, but they still sue Kelly.
Vicki Gunvalson rages about a good old-fashioned trash-talking could lose her career in real life.
According to documents filed on Friday and received by TMZ, Jane Roe Kelly and the producers of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" at Bravo and NBCUniversal are suing for three statements Kelly allegedly barked at Vicki while filming an episode in Key West:
– "They are hunting for the elderly."
– "You are a cheat."
– "You were involved in & # 39; fraud & # 39 ;.
Vicki says these are all lies, and she explained this in writing to the producer … and explains why any claim was wrong and could harm her livelihood if she does so.
Now it is pretty clear that the person behind the pseudonym "Jane Roe" is Vicki, because she describes herself as a TV personality on "RHOC", which is also a specialist in retirement and prez of an insurance and financial services company. So, yes … it's Vicki.
In the lawsuit, Vicki points out that she has never been sued for the past 31 years of her job … and has been awarded an A Plus rating by the Better Business Bureau.
From the documentation, it is not clear if Kelly's remarks are actually in the current season of & # 39; RHOC & # 39; but Vicki goes on the offensive because she believes producers will leave this in the wake. She's worried … In the season 14 trailer, Kelly drops the "cheater" line.
Vicki does not ask the producers to kill the whole episode, she just wants those 3 sets of Kelly's lips to remain on the bottom of the editing room. NBCUniversal "will not harm its popular TV program if a portion of an overall episode is removed."
Vicki complains of obtaining an injunction to stop the broadcasting of the episode, and also for damages.  Originally published – 3:38 PM PT
