Kelly Dodd Claims Vicki Gunvalson Bought Her Own Engagement Ring

Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County was boring. But an interesting and unconfirmed rumor emerged that “OG” Vicki Gunvalson, if she wanted to save her full-time Housewife position for the next season, had to deliver a big storyline. She needed to get engaged–on camera. No pressure!

It’s not like Vicki didn’t constantly tell her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, that she wanted him to put a ring on it and make it official. Steve finally did propose to Vicki in April of 2019, and it seemed like Vicki’s RHOC position was guaranteed.

Well, about that. Vicki was demoted to a Friend of the Housewives for Season 14. I am still a bit shocked, especially since she is still creating right in the middle of the drama. The bad blood between Vicki and Kelly Dodd started when Vicki set up Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd with one of her friends. Vicki decided to keep it a secret from Kelly. When Kelly found out, she was furious.

At last season’s reunion, Vicki went after her former friend Kelly by repeating a rumor that Kelly uses cocaine. During Season 14, Vicki and Tamra Judge drove the Kelly “sex train” out of the station. A sex train occurs when a person has sex with people one after another. Who says Real Housewives isn’t educational?

The Tres Amigas: Shannon Beador, Tamra and Vicki knew about this rumor and decided it was too damaging to ever be revealed. Don’t worry, Vicki later said that she didn’t have any part in spreading the story. Seriously? For her part, Kelly denied the rumors that she does cocaine or ever took part in a sex train. But she would be open to a possible threesome.

In an interview with People, Kelly made some shady comments about Vicki and Tamra. (Warning: the grammar is a bit rough) “When I look at Vicki, I look at her as like AARP,” Kelly said. “But you know, it’s like…you gotta have a personal story. You can’t be surrounding [your] other peoples’ stories. Like…like I feel like Tamra and..and… and Vicki are, I mean, they’re stale.”

Kelly’s temper has been flaring all season, just ask  RHOC co-star Gina Kirschenheiter after Kelly smacked her on the head. Of course, Kelly just wanted to demonstrate how she hit the metal bowl on Shannon’s head with a mallet. You know–the normal stuff that happens on a girl’s trip.

Kelly also took to Twitter to comment on Vicki’s engagement ring. “You know where the ring is of course..cuz you bought the ring..#rhoc,”

Kelly tweeted. Look, is there a possibility that Vicki helped Steve buy her the ring of her dreams? Yes!
