The OG of the O.C. says she was "shocked" by what transpired on Tuesday's episode of the Bravo series.
Following countless jokes about Vicki's age by several of her co-stars -- not just Emily -- the OG of the O.C. took to Twitter to bash the sophomore cast member.
"Watched @BravoRHOC last night & was shocked to hear @RealOCEmily bash me about my age of 57," Gunvalson tweeted. "Referencing me as 'old, I should be in a convalescent home, and geriatric.' Really? I can't change my DOB and you will get there too. #disrespectful #rude."

It was actually Kelly Dodd who initially made the joke about Vicki needing to "be in a convalescent home." When a confused Gina Kirschenheiter asked what that was, Emily explained, "I assume it's for old people," and the three ladies laughed. In a response to Vicki's post, Emily reiterated that she "didn't say convalescent home," simply adding, "Let's be accurate."
Emily, who is 43 herself, has also made various comments about Vicki's age in the past. She's referred to the Tres Amigas (Vicki, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador) as senior citizens and likened their relationship with the newer cast members to the way a senior in high school might "bully" a freshman.
After the episode aired, some people on Instagram left comments on Emily's photos from their trip to Key West, asking the reality star why she felt it was acceptable to age-shame when she often speaks out against those who body-shame her.
She has yet to reply.
"The Real Housewives of Orange County" Season 14 finale airs Tuesday, December 17 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
