Playing 'RHOC' Star Vicki Gunvalson Shares Post-Accident Recovery Photo and Health Update

Vicki Gunvalson is recovering with a little TLC from her grandson.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star was hospitalized on Sunday after she and co-star Tamra Judge were in a sand dune accident. Now, Gunvalson has shared an update on her health, alongside sweet photos with her grandson, Troy.

"This little guy brings so much joy to my life. And while I recover from our accident last weekend, I am grateful for simple moments like this. #blessings #family #grateful #thankyoujesus," she captioned the post.

In her Facebook comments, a fan "LMAO"-ed at her neck brace, prompting the 54-year-old reality star to open up about her injuries, responding, "What's so funny about a neck brace? Have you ever had a severe concussion or neck injury?? Nothing to laugh about!!"

The two Housewives were joyriding on all-terrain vehicles in Glamis, California, when one of the vehicles rolled over multiple times, reportedly while cameras for the Bravo reality series were filming. Gunvalson was transported by emergency airlift to the hospital.

"Tamra was driving the sand buggy. Vicki was in the back seat with [new castmate] Kelly Meza-Dodd," a source close to Vicki tells ET. "Tamra was driving at about 65-70 MPH and must have hit something. They flipped five or six times...Vicki is home now, and is incredibly sore and has severe whiplash."

She later posted a photo of the aircraft, writing, "Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. #itwasntourtime @tamrajudge @heatherdubrow"
