He is the first man that has ever really treated me to anything. He is like, ‘I got that, you’re not paying for that.’ I am like, ‘Are you real?’ He is frickin’ incredible.” Man, the bar is set so low for her.
Now Vicki is taking another step in her relationship and introducing her boyfriend to her family. As reported by Page Six, Vicki shared a picture of her new man with her family on her Instagram account.
