Sure, they “made up,” but the tension has been thick between the two of them ever since. Watching the show back and commenting on their past arguments in interviews and on social media definitely hasn’t helped the situation. Nowadays it’s clear that these two are not on speaking terms and they are bound to be arguing with each other on opposite couches when they tape the reunion.
Out of all the husbands (and boyfriends) in Real Housewives history,Vicki Gunvalson’sman Steve Lodgeseems to be one of the least opportunistic of them all. However, that’s not what Vicki’s friend-turned-frienemy Kelly Dodd is claiming. She told Tamra Judgethat Steve is only with Vicki for her money. Nevertheless, it seem like appearing on Real Housewives of Orange County is the last thing that Steve wants to do.
Of course, Tamra did what she does best: stirred the pot. She told Vicki what Kelly said the next time she saw her. To be honest, that was the right thing to do, especially if Kelly was spreading that around to other people (which she most likely was), but it’s also setting up a major explosion the next time Vicki and Kelly see each other in person. Not only that, but Tamra also questioned if Steve really loved Vicki… even though she just told him to marry Vicki during the previous episode.
Specifically, Kelly called Shane a “little bitch,” which obviously did not sit well with Emily who told Kelly she would “kill” her. There is not a more effective way to rile up a Real Housewife than to mess with her man.
Kelly Doddand Vicki’s feud resurfaced and the rest of the cast had a front row seat to their heated exchange. Fellow new girl Gina Kirschenheitereven chimed in to bash Vicki for her ridiculous behavior.
At first, I was very invested in this Kelly Doddvs. Vicki Gunvalson feud. Now I feel like this one argument has really run its course. Just in case anyone managed to forget, Kelly is livid because Vicki set up one of her friends with Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Doddand secretly went on double dates with them.
Obviously pretty much everyone is on Kelly’s side. As per usual, Vicki refuses to see the situation from someone else’s point of view and she keeps deflecting and bringing up irrelevant facts to detract from conversation. This has happened in every single episode this season. Enough is enough. Kelly might not have Vicki on her side these days, but she has the rest of the cast and the Real Housewives of Orange County viewers in her corner.
