On Monday, Vicki Gunvalson, one of the stars of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County, has petitioned a California court to end her 16 year marriage to husband Donn, TMZ.com has learned.
According to documents filed in the Orange County Superior Court this week, the reality soap star cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. News of the pending divorce comes just over a year since The Gunvalsons, who wed in 1994, renewed their wedding vows — at Vicki’s insistence — in July 2009. As die-hard Real Housewives fans will attest, The Gunvalsons wowed viewers as the one of the most unconventional married couple in Orange County. Donn and Vicki always seemed ready to give one another liberties and free time not regularly afforded to another attached couples.
Last February, Star Magazine spywitnesses claimed Gunvalson cheated on Donn with a college frat boy will moonlighting in Mexico. The college student, Mike Pullin, a senior at the University of Manitoba, told Star that he made out with the married TV star all night.
She sure didn’t look married then.
“Vicki was extremely outgoing and having a great time, like a sorority girl. We clicked immediately and danced to rock ‘n’ roll by Bon Jovi and Journey. She was living it up. She kept talking to me. She was a big flirt.”
