Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Vicki Gunvalson

Take a deep, cleansing breath because we have an update on Vicki Gunvalson! For the most part, Vicki can be found lamenting about her glory days on Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki is still in recovery due to the enormous chip on her shoulder that manifested as a result of getting pink slipped. But Vicki has other things going for her, healthy grandkids, her own business, and fiancé Steve Chavez Lodge.

Instead of focusing on what she does have, Vicki clings to what she lost. She isn’t fond of the RHOC cast that carried on in her absence and she makes no bones about sharing her dismay. She seems particularly jealous wary of Braunwyn Windham-Burke, despite the fact that Braunwyn isn’t checking for Vicki (to be fair, no one checks for Vicki). Recently, Vickster revealed she didn’t like Braunwyn from the jump, which basically makes Braunwyn like everyone else Vicki has ever met.

Former Real Housewives Of Orange County Star Vicki Gunvalson Denies Dumping Steve Lodge For 23 Year Old Boy Toy

We are living in a world without Real Housewives of Orange County alum Vicki Gunvalson on our televisions. Gone are the days of peeing on someone’s bed. Screaming about threesomes in snow-covered mountains are mere memories. And waxing poetic about the necessity of properly fueled love tanks is in the past. Pause for brief wave of nausea… Yes, Vicki is gone, but she certainly isn’t forgotten – because she won’t let us forget her.

Last time Vicki was featured on RHOC, she had been demoted to a “friend of” the cast. Though to be fair, Vicki really isn’t much of a friend to anyone. Rumors buzzed there was an #ultimatumbybravo implying Vickster had to get engaged to avoid being tossed to the cornfield a la Peggy Sulahain. In 2019 Steve Lodge, Vicki’s paramour, bit the bullet and asked for Vicki’s hand in marriage after 3 years of dating. Here we are, in 2021, and Vicki is still not Mrs. Chavez Lodge. People have speculated Steve packed his bags and escaped left Vicki, but she says it’s not true. Recently Vicki’s PR the streets were whispering Vicki got herself a younger man. Now Vicki does what she does best, denies it.
