Vicki Gunvalson put the “pain” in champagne during a recent day of beauty at a swanky San Diego spa. The Real Housewives of Orange County star came in with a pal and sipped Veuve Cliquot as the staff catered to her every whim, which included pricey body wraps—but then balked when asked to settle up.
“When we gave her the bill, which was thousands of dollars, Vicki flipped out,” claims a spa employee. “She ranted that for that amount of money she could buy a new outfit!” (A rep for Vicki claims that the treatments were supposed to have been comped in the exchange for her publicity.)
After her tantrum, the spa manager gave in and allowed the reality star to pay whatever she thought was fair. “Vicki wrote us two checks, totaling $500, which barely covered the gratuity,” fumes the worker.
“Her behavior was appalling . She even deleted her tweets and Instagram posts thanking our salon. I’ve never met someone so rude and ungrateful,” dishes the angry tipster.
