Time to whoop it up! After a messy split from fiancé Steve Lodge, Vicki Gunvalson was trying to move on with her life. But she hit a little bit of a snag when news broke that Steve had proposed to his girlfriend. What makes this extra messy is the timeline of it all. According to the former Real Housewives of Orange County star, they only broke up three months ago.
But Steve was reportedly cheating on her during their relationship. With a “36 year old” no less! Vicki said in an Instagram comment, “He used me, he lied to me, he’s been dating a 36 year old and is not what he portrays himself to be. No Christian man would do what he’s done.” Please note, Steve’s new fiancé, Janis Carlson is…..36! GASP!
But according to Steve, he broke up with Vicki months prior to their announcement. And claimed she just wouldn’t accept it. He whined “The absolute lies she is now spreading on social media is very disappointing and disingenuous, to say the least.” I’m no Vicki stan, but…sure, Steve.
Regardless of the back and forth, Vicki has decided to put Steve, the “fame whore” behind her once and for all. As reported by Page Six, Vicki is ready to step out and celebrate. So Vicki is throwing a “breakup party” with a bunch of male strippers in Las Vegas! The event will take place at the aptly named Kings of Hustler strip club, located on the rooftop of the Hustler Club. It will take place on February 5th so mark your calendars!
Said a source, “When Vicki was first approached about doing the appearance, she was still healing from her breakup with Steve. She was also super upset about his engagement — but not anymore.”

After 5 years with Steve, Vicki has earned the right to celebrate her freedom. Or failure. Whatever you want to call it. And Vicki’s friends fully stand behind her. Andy Cohen tweeted his support for Vicki and stated, “If @vgunvalson doesn’t find a GREAT guy this year, it won’t be a good year. She deserves it. #FullLoveTankForVG.” Bestie Tamra Judge said of the relationship,“I think that she dodged a bullet with that one. He’s been engaged seven times.”
But the insider said that despite previously having a hard time, Vicki is “ready to put herself out there again.” The source added,“She’s happily single and can’t wait to showcase her freedom. She’s super excited for the strip club appearance.” And always true to her businesswomen roots, we’re told that Vicki will be getting paid to play. Not a bad way to recover.
