Breaking her silence!
Vicki Gunvalson is finally opening up about her split with fiancé Steve Lodge.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County couple recently ended their two-year engagement.
On Instagram, the OG of the OC confirmed her split with Steve while also sharing a thoughtful affirmation.
“Once you decide you want a good life, The Universe will start moving things for you to have it the people you need will appear, the healing you need will happen, the doors you need open will unlock,” the quote reads. “Once you truly, sincerely decide, miracles will happen.”
Within the same post, Vicki also shared a selfie with her ex and another quote that showed a pair of hands releasing a rope. “Sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go,” the third picture reads.
Vicki opened up about her heartache in the caption of the post, saying, “This is what appeared for today’s ‘Vibe of the day’ … pretty appropriate for what I’m going through. It’s taken me a day to be able to make a statement after the press started writing about Steve and I. Yes, the rumors are true. The time has come for Steve and I to move forward or move on and we are … moving on.”
She noted that the split was nobody’s “fault,” adding, “We are just going in different directions. I wish him the best life has to offer and to be happy, and he has wished the same for me. I gave it my all, but sometimes the ‘ALL’ isn’t enough.”
To conclude Vicki said that she nor Steve “both have no further comment” on the breakup.
On Tuesday, E! News confirmed Vicki and Steve’s 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.
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.
