Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson and her fiancé Steve Lodge have split two years after getting engaged.
E! News confirmed the split with one insider claiming that “Steve ended things with Vicki.”
According to another source, Vicki and Steve first broke up in June but attempted to reconcile in recent months. However, their reconciliation was clearly unsuccessful.
The insider said, “Steve and Vicki had been living separately for much of the pandemic,” before adding that “Steve had been living like he was a single man in Puerto Vallarta, while Vicki was in the U.S.”
This news came to light after fans noticed that Vicki and Steve unfollowed each other on Instagram. Vicki also seems to have erased all photos of Steve from her Instagram, including their engagement announcement has disappeared.
Steve and Vicki got engaged in April 2019 after three years of dating. They met at a Boys & Girls Club charity event in Anaheim, California.
This would have been Vicki’s third marriage. She divorced Donn Gunvalson in 2014 after 20 years of marriage. Before Donn, Vicki was married to Michael Wolfsmith, with whom she shares her two children, Michael Wolfsmith and Briana Culberson.
In January 2020, Vicki announced her departure from RHOC after 14 years on the show. Her exit wasn’t a surprise following her season 14 demotion to a “friend” of the Housewives.
The OG of the OC will appear on season two of Peacock’s upcoming Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip special.
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in early 2022.
