There are plenty of big changes happening at the Gunvalson household on this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but Vicki Gunvalson is insistent that one thing that will stay the same: Herself.
"I had a little bit of tweaking done, but I'm still the same person," the insurance agency owner tells Us in an exclusive sit-down interview at her Coto De Caza home. "My new look, I really don't think I look too much different. I hope I look a little bit younger, brighter, not so dried out."
The 51-year-old mother of two recently underwent a few procedures on her face, including cheek implants, body fat injected into her face to erase wrinkles, and a thinned nose.
Gunvalson has also previously had two breast augmentations.
"I've always felt like I'm not pretty enough," the divorced mother told Us, pointing to a moment during the show's last season, when a costar called her Miss Piggy during a comedy performance. "It really hurt -- off-camera, I cried."
This season will hopefully bring about only happy tears, however, because Gunvalson reveals that one of the biggest changes in her household will involve her new role as grandmother.
"I'm going to become a grandmother, and for those of you who've watched my show for a long time, Briana was in high school when we first started and here she is -- almost 26 next week -- and she's a mother!" Gunvalson shared. "That's been a great journey that our family's been on.
