Vicki Gunvalson Steve Lodge Engaged

The OG of the OC is off the market! That’s right. After years of begging hinting, Vicki Gunvalson is engaged to Steve Lodge. Since Real Housewives of Orange County is currently filming, there’s no doubt that the engagement was filmed. Right?

Not only that, but there were some rampant rumors that Vicki only secured her full-time status because she promised an engagement. Before that, the cast started filming without her. It was unclear if she would be full-time, part-time, or off the show. Now, Vicki has secured her orange rock.

Vicki Gunvalson Suing Ex-Boyfriend Brooks Ayers For Unpaid Loans & Fraud

Oh this is RICH, pun intended. Remember when Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson was hooking up with grifter Brooks Ayers? How could you forget? Their sordid co-dependency cost Vicki friends, damaged her relationship with daughter Briana Culberson and put a huge dent in her reputation. But you know Vicki, she gotta have a man and that DISGUSTING LIAR Brooks guy was one for the record books.

Vicki was single for 5 whole minutes after her association with Brooks McCancerscammer ended when she eventually moved on with Steve Lodge. Apparently, Steve is still hanging in there. Bless his heart. But Bravo is bringing down the hammer and forcing hoping an on-camera engagement will take place to secure Vicki’s continued spot on the show. In the interim, Vicki and her insurance company have recently been accused of defrauding an elderly woman after her spouse passed away. Hello Vicki? Yes, I have Karma on line one for you – and Karma is happy to hold until you take the call…
Now Vicki is on the other side with a lawsuit of her own, and all I can say is – good luck with this one, dear.

Vicki Gunvalson Reported To Be Demoted To Friend Of Status If Boyfriend Steve Lodge Doesn’t Propose To Her

The last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County was not one of the best. Although I would say it was an improvement from the previous year, the season was still a bit of a snoozer. Not much happened, other than Gina Kirschenheiter age shaming the other women and Shannon Beador testing QVC frozen meals in her kitchen. Even Tamra Judge was on mostly good behavior. Except for injuring herself in a drunken, nude hot tub escapade!

And one of the consistent creators of OC drama spent last season minding her manners. The Vicki Gunvalson we have come to know and love (or loathe!) was drama avoidant and almost demure the entire season. OK, she might have twerked in a see-through black lace outfit in public and got intoxicated a few times, but for the Queen of Coto de Caza, she was almost nun-like. And reportedly, Bravo is not happy about it.

Vicki Gunvalson Visits Puerto Vallarta With Steve Lodge & Her Siblings- Photos

Vicki Gunvalson loves reminding us all that she’s “the OG of the OC.” No one can deny that. However, she also deserves another arbitrary title in Puerto Vallarta. That’s where the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member really shines- minus last season’s trip with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador. Vicki was on her best behavior then. This was in stark contrast to Tamra who broke her foot during a drunken, naked jacuzzi session.

Let’s hope Vicki has returned to form and “whooped it up” during her most recent Puerto Vallarta visit. Then again, she was there with her siblings, their spouses, her man Steve Lodge, and Steve’s daughter Amanda. It’s safe to assume she was well-behaved then as well. However, she did share some photos from the bar. This just makes me long for the Vicki of yesteryear who danced on the bar, downed tequila shots, and peed on Tamra’s bedspread. A truly golden era.

The Real Housewives were all about that mother/daughter time this past week. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice celebrated her daughter Gia Giudice’s eighteenth birthday! Yes, you read that correctly. Gia Giudice is eighteen years old. How old do you feel now? Personally, I’m feeling ancient right about now.

Meanwhile, Teresa’s costar Danielle Staub went to a play with her daughter Jillian Staub. Additionally, Kyle Richards posed for a mother/daughter photo with Sophia Umansky. Then, Vicki Gunvalson got her daughter Briana Culberson to wear matching pajamas on a cruise.

Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.

In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.

Stassi Schroeder, Erika Jayne, Kathryn Dennis, and Bethenny Frankel, struck a pose and showed off some chic outfits. Then there are other reality stars who cropped out their outfits and went for the selfies. Luann de Lesseps, D’Andra Simmons, LeeAnne Locken all posted selfies this week.

And of course, as per usual, there were plenty of reality star couple photos on Instagram. Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno went to Miami.  Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss posed for a couples selfie with their men Mike Hill and Todd Tucker.

RHOC-Reunion-Kelly-Dodd

Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County was, in all honesty, a snooze-fest. The biggest source of drama, other than Tamra Judge’s constant complaints about being Shannon Beador’s best friend, were the fireworks between OG Housewife Vicki Gunvalson and single (and oh-so-ready to mingle) Kelly Dodd.

Kelly accused Vicki of breaking “girl code” by going on a double-date with Vicki’s boyfriend, Steve Lodge,  one of Vicki’s friends, and Kelly’s ex-husband, Michael Dodd. She was furious by Vicki’s betrayal. Now, she isn’t a big fan of Steve’s, either. Still, that issue drove most of the season to its exciting lackluster conclusion.

Say what you want about Vicki Gunvalson, but the woman really does know how to turn up on a vacation. Recently, she hosted a Vacation with Vicki event in Puerto Vallarta. As expected, she brought her man Steve Lodge along for the fun times.

Of course, she shared some photos from the trip. It’s safe to say that it was much more fun than any of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trips. Hopefully, it was devoid of arguing, meltdowns, see-through outfits, and Vicki’s unfortunate twerking.

Shannon and Tamra face off on RHOC reunion

Last night was part three of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Which means this bizarre season is finally over. Part 3 was all about Shannon Beador, as pretty much every part of everything is. As Shannon said, “I’m sorry for being me me me me me!”

Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes

But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.
