One of the funniest Real Housewives scenes is when, in season 2, Vicki was mad that a “family van” showed up at her house when her family was getting ready for a cruise. Vicki felt that the car was tiny and she was absolutely shocked that this would happen.

Viewers still talk about this quote because Vicki didn’t care that her then husband and kids didn’t mind the van and felt that she was overreacting. When Vicki was in a situation that she didn’t want to be in or she was upset, she wanted to make sure that someone heard exactly how she was feeling.

One of the most memorable parts of Vicki’s personality is her desire to maintain her close friendships.

Vicki was often honest about hating fighting with her friends and in one scene, she phoned Tamra to ask about meeting for coffee to talk things out.

While viewers could say that both Tamra and Vicki have been in the wrong and have hurt each other, Vicki never backed away from admitting when she wanted to have a real conversation and try to mend a friendship. It didn’t always go well, but she seemed to be coming from a genuine place here since she had been part of Tamra’s life for years.

“I’ll Bring My Laptop In The Car…”

Vicki always had a strong work ethic

Some of the best Vicki RHOC episodes involved Vicki hanging out with her family as she always loves being with her daughter Briana and son Michael. In one early scene, Briana asked if Vicki could take her to an appointment and Vicki said she would work in the car before telling the camera in a confessional that she wanted to provide for her kids after divorcing their father.

Fans remember two things about Vicki’s days on RHOC: the fights she got into and the company that she runs, COTO Insurance. The cameras often showed Vicki in her home office or her actual office, as she shared her passion for her business and the joy that she felt helping people and working with her team. Vicki always wanted to make sure that her kids knew that hard work gets someone far in life.

“I Haven’t Seen You In Two Days.”

Vicki was a strict mom during Briana’s high school years

Vicki always wanted to be involved in her children’s lives and that meant sometimes upsetting them with behavior that they would call too strict and overbearing. Briana and Michael often shared their frustration with how Vicki would ask them a lot of questions or complain about what they were doing. Vicki couldn’t help but want to hang out with her kids regularly, and while she sometimes said the wrong thing, her love for her kids is endearing.
