Vicki Gunvalson & Steve Lodge Are Living Together; She Wants To Marry Him

The good news is that the first episode of Season 13 of Real Housewives of  Orange County was better than all of Season 12. The bad news is that it still wasn’t that great. Essentially nothing happened. Yes, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Kelly Dodd are all getting along these days and that’s monumental considering that Shannon and Tamra didn’t even want to film with Vicki last season.

Nevertheless, let’s just hope their willingness to film with each other means that it is more likely for drama to occur and that it’s not just a boring love fest all season. I’m all for the friendships, but friendships with some shade and an argument or two thrown in make for way better television.

Even though Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, plenty of reality TV stars still managed to celebrate the party in the middle of the week. Some of them got away to celebrate and others just kicked it in their own backyard with their families.

Vicki Gunvalson hung out with her man Steve Lodge in Huntington Beach, California while her daughter Briana Culberson, son-in-law Ryan Culberson, and grandsons hung out with her ex-husband Donn Gunvalson in North Carolina.

Former Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks took her two sons Ayden and Dylan to an Atlanta Braves game- all decked out in red, white, and blue in honor of the holiday.

A picture is worth a thousand words, rights? So what does it say when Cameran Eubanks, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Shep Rose, Kathryn Dennis, and Patricia Altschul all post the same photo of Cameran, Whitney, Shep, and Kathryn with Cameran’s daughter Palmer? I’m sure that they were all excited to meet the new baby, but are they also sending a message about the “teams” for the rest of Southern Charm Season 5? Or maybe I’m just being presumptuous… Then again, take a look at Thomas Ravenel’s Twitter account and it’s very clear that he and Patricia are feuding these days. We shall see what happens as the season continues….

With Watch What Happens Live taping in Los Angeles all week, it was a guarantee that Real Housewives cast members from the past and present would show up and take a lot of photos together. The Los Angeles taping meant that Housewives and alums from Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed up in droves.

Original Housewives Vicki Gunvalson (obviously), Jeana Keough, and Lauri Peterson showed up for a taping along with Kelly Dodd, Gretchen Rossi, Jill Zarin, Dina Manzo (who lives in California now), Eileen Davidson, and NeNe Leakes among others.

With so many great reality shows back with new episodes this week and others that are filming for the next season, it makes sense that a lot of reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.

New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer finally cut her signature hair, so of course she shared a photo of getting all glammed up with her new look. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels shared a photo of her hair and makeup team getting her ready to throw shade during some on-camera interviews this season. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador also posted a photo of her glam squad in action. Southern Charm star Shep Rose shared a photo of he and Whitney Sudler-Smith in front of a green screen in between shooting some commentary on the current season.

Vicki Gunvalson’s Ex Brooks Ayers Confirmed That He Is Now A Married Man

The Brooks Ayers cancer scandal had reach beyond the Real Housewives of Orange County fandom. This storyline made national news. Even non-Bravo viewers were voicing their opinions on Vicki Gunvalson’s then-boyfriend.

Now, he’s officially someone else’s problem husband. That’s right. Someone actually married Brooks Ayers. Brooks’ new wife is a woman named Christy Groves and now I just want to know if she has cable… or internet access. I just can’t imagine someone thinking that Brooks is a catch after everything he put Vicki (and the RHOC viewers) through. Maybe she’s into those new teeth Vicki gave him. I just don’t get the attraction at all.

There are few things better than a Real Housewives crossover. It’s always interesting to have more than one Real Housewife in the same room, but it’s even more exciting to have cast members from different shows in one place. These moments make for the best Instagram posts.

Erika Girardi (or maybe it was her alter ego Erika Jayne), Melissa Gorga, and Kenya Moore channeled fifties Housewives with some high buns, conservative dresses, aprons, and white heels to film a promotional spot for A Wrinkle In Time.

Tamra Judge met up with the newest Beverly Hills Housewife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and her husband Edwin Arroyave.

Kelly Dodd

At this point, it looks like Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson will be on opposite couches during the next Real Housewives of Orange County reunion (and the new season hasn’t even started).

Kelly went from being Vicki’s most loyal friend in the cast to dragging Vicki and boyfriend Steve Lodge on Twitter.
