Steve Lodge

Vicki Gunvalson

After publicly begging Steve Lodge for an engagement/desperately hoping to save her orange, Vicki Gunvalson got engaged. The Season 14 finale episode even centered around their engagement party, which production Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador “threw” for them.

Vicki has talked about just wanting a small, private wedding with family, while simultaneously hinting that she wanted to film it for the show. That couldn’t be more public. However, she got fired from the show, so that whole filmed wedding thing went out the window. So, why aren’t Vicki and Steve married yet? Fans have speculated that they’ve called it quits.

Former Real Housewives Of Orange County Star Vicki Gunvalson Slams Emily Simpson; Said Emily Is “One Of The Worst Casting Decisions Bravo Has Ever Made”

Golly, those are some strong words coming from someone who lied about cancer, huh? Vicki Gunvalson might have some residual feelings about being fired from Real Housewives of Orange County. She and her co-dependent partner in crime, Tamra Judge are gone, but not forgotten.

Vicki is supposed to be enjoying a quieter life. Less stress, perhaps planning a wedding. But Vicki does not go away without a fight, and she is in the fight of her life. After coming for the still-employed Shannon STORMS Beador and lamenting the demise of Tres Amigas (again), she turned her attack on Kelly Dodd. Emily Simpson made the error of having a brief thought about Vicki, which triggered her Google Alerts. Now Vicki turns her attack on Emily. I guess Gina Kirschenheiter hasn’t made her mad yet.

Vicki Kelly Dodd

When Kelly Dodd joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she was the only one willing to be friends with Vicki Gunvalson after the infamous cancer scam.

That all went out the window when Vicki and Steve Lodge started going out on double dates with Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Dodd and kept the outings a secret. Ever since then, Vicki and Kelly have been ripping each other to shreds whenever possible.

Real Housewives Of Orange County RHOC Vicki Gunvalson Shannon Beador

Dealing with Vicki Gunvalson is an exercise in futility. Vicki also has issues with jealousy. Thankfully viewers will be free from Vicki’s relentless woo-hoo screaming and desperate attempts to make Steve Lodge appear interested in their relationship. Bravo gave us the gift that will keep on giving, no more Vicki or Tamra Judge on Real Housewives of Orange County.

Accepting her fate with a positive attitude isn’t Vicki’s thing. Thankfully, her partner in crime, Tamra, was shown the door as well. But one piece of the puzzle was missing. Shannon Beador, third member of the OCs answer to Hells Angels, Tres Amigas, kept her orange. While doing press for the show, Shannon was asked about her former friend. Vicki’s Google Alerts must be on because now she responds to Shannon’s comments, and seemingly punishes her for not being unemployed.

Vicki Gunvalson Is Slammed For Saying She Wants Small Businesses To Reopen During Pandemic

Real Housewives of Orange County fans were shocked, and some were pleased, when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted for Season 14. After having the mother of all meltdowns during the RHOC reunion, Vicki and her bestie Tamra Judge were offered part-time contracts for the upcoming season. In January, the former Tres Amigas decided to quit. 

So, what has Vicki been up to? Vicki  is filming a new reality show with Tamra. She also has her own podcast, Whoop It Up with Vicki. And Vicki never weighs in on Housewives drama. Just ask former friend Shannon Beador. Vicki unfollowed Shannon on Instagram because Shannon made amends with Vicki’s nemesis, Kelly Dodd.

Vicki Gunvalson And Tamra Judge Are Bothered By Shannon Beador Making Up With Kelly Dodd

Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge might have said “adios” to Real Housewives of Orange County, but that doesn’t mean we have heard the last of them. I’m sure that’s exactly how they want it too. These two are so joined at the hip, I can’t imagine them doing anything separate at this point.

As viewers of RHOC, we suffered through watched many seasons of the so-called “Tres Amigas”, which comprised of Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon Beador. But now that Vicki and Tamra have left the show, all that remains is Shannon and her relationships with her current cast mates. That doesn’t seem to be sitting too well with two thirds of the trio.

Vicki Gunvalson Postpones Wedding Due To Coronavirus

If I’m being honest, I was pretty happy about Vicki Gunvalson’s firing from Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s been insufferable for many seasons and I will never forgive her for her part in a cancer scam. I don’t care how many times she screams through the streets of Key West that she was “conned.” Vicki claims to be a “smart woman.” Why wouldn’t she know what was going on?

After being demoted to a Friend of the Housewives role last season, she brought as much drama as humanly possible. This was most likely in a ploy to win back her orange full time. But spreading train rumors about Kelly Dodd wasn’t enough to save her. Neither was her suspiciously timed engagement to long term boyfriend, Steve Lodge. Too bad even that isn’t going as planned.

Vicki Gunvalson Says Filming Real Housewives Of Orange County “Became Fake” & “Really Toxic”

When Vicki Gunvalson was demoted for Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County, it shook both viewers, and other Housewives. Vicki was the “OG of the OC.” Obviously, Vicki was not happy about losing her orange and had a spectacular melt-down at the reunion.

Both Vicki and her bestie, Tamra Judge, rejected the part-time roles they were offered. But then, in early March, Vicki and Tamra posted the same photo to Instagram of them with a camera crew.
