Shame on Bravo for keep rolling and airing Vicki getting the news about her mother. That was awful.
I believe Andy said they did ask Vicki if it should air after it was filmed and she said yes, b/c it's real life.
That being said, I have no idea how they didn't 1) put down the camera and go get one of her friends to comfort her or 2) put down the camera themselves and comfort her.
Honestly, Vicki can get on my nerves, but my heart broke for her. I teared up.
I was very glad they weren't allowed to film the funeral though. Somethings should be sacred.
