Lisa Rinna, ‘Wives’ ‘wouldn’t have a job’ without me

Vicki Gunvalson is coming after all the other “Housewives,” claiming they allegedly snubbed her at an event.

“I don’t think they gave me the time of day,” Gunvalson — who was on “Real Housewives of Orange County” from its inception in 2006 until 2020 — said on the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast on Jan. 21. “They wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for me starting this damn thing.”

Gunvalson, 58, then singled out Lisa Rinna, accusing the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star of acting as if she was above the “OG of the OC.”

“I said hi to her, and she was like, ‘Oh yeah, you’re Orange County,’” the Coto Insurance owner said.

Gunvalson then criticized Rinna, 57, for dancing on tables at Cohen’s baby shower in 2019 — which everyone else there appeared to take part in and enjoy.

“She’s up on the tables dancing. I’m like, ‘Why? This is Andy’s baby shower,’” she said. “You want attention? … I just sat back going, ‘Wow, this is a little messed up.’”

A rep for Rinna declined to comment.

Gunvalson did admit that “everybody was having fun,” but thinks one sees it from a “different perspective” when you’re “not on [the show] anymore.”

In January 2020, the reality star announced she was leaving “Real Housewives of Orange County” after being on the show for 14 years.

She said at the time, “I will always be the OG of the OC.”
