Real OC Housewife Vicki Melts Down Over Marital Woes

Entertainment May. 6, 2011 AT 2:36PM

Real Housewives of Orange County's Vicki Gunvalson just isn't "woo-hooing" with as much vigor as she used to -- and with good reason.

As a new clip from Sunday's episode shows, the 48-year-old has had it with pals who prod her with relationship questions.

Recounting a dinner party Gunvalson attended with fellow wives Tamra Barney and Peggy Tanous, Gunvalson's husband, Donn, quickly becomes the lead topic of conversation. But when Tanous brings up how lively Donn was at the bash Gunvalson changes the subject.

"Every time someone would bring up Donn, I'd see Vicki get tighter and cringing," says Barney in a voiceover, as Tanous presses for more and her pal finally cracks.

"The reality is, my world is falling apart," the insurance executive -- who wed Donn in 1994 and filed for divorce in October -- laments. "My marriage is falling apart, my security is falling apart, and I'm miserable within my own mind and my body. I don't know where I belong anymore!"

As the couple's rocky romance crumbles on camera, Gunvalson admitted to Us Weekly in March that she and her estranged spouse were still living under the same roof.

"My love tank has truly been empty for many many years," Gunvalson said. "We stopped communicating. My happiness came from my work and my children," she explained of Michael and Brianna, her grown kids from her first marriage.

"I didn't go to Donn for friendship or companionship, and he didn't with me either," she told Us.
