2. Vicki Gunvalson
The reality star is on The Real Housewives of Orange County where it’s normal for the stars to have side ventures. The latest organization she attached herself to is a charity called Kill all Cancer. This was very controversial given the fact that in a recent season of the show she was dating a man who allegedly faked having cancer.
The charity sold bracelets and took donations through GoFundMe. The foundation is also supposed to help cancer patients find insurance. Gunvalson was the face of this charity because she owns an insurance company. However, even her fellow cast mates have been suspicious about her new venture.
“Am I the only one that doesn’t know what to think about Vicki starting an insurance program for cancer patients?” Tamra Barney wrote in a blog post. “The way it was explained was more about making money and convincing people she had nothing to do with Brook’s cancer scam.” The company reportedly started taking donations but didn’t have their 501(c)(3) processed yet, according to Radar Online. The company has since shut down its website with the following message.
KAC has decided to voluntarily shut down its website until further notice. Our spokesperson, Ms. Gunvalson graciously agreed to assist us with the launch of this charitable endeavor, however, due to some concerted attempts to disparage Ms. Gunvalson and KAC through the dissemination of inaccurate and blatantly false information, we feel it’s best to temporarily cease operations as we explore various platforms to convey our positive message.
