Tamra Judge shows support for her good friend and former Real Housewives of Orange County costar Vicki Gunvalson amid her recent breakup.
The OG of the OC recently split with her fiancé Steve Lodge after five years together.
The day after Vicki confirmed her split from Steve, Tamra posted an encouraging and supportive message to Vicki on Instagam.
“You got this @vickigunvalson. Life is like a camera, focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and when things don’t work out …..TAKE ANOTHER SHOT! It won’t be long before I get the call “ where ya gotta go to whoop it up around here” love you sis #byeboy #breakup #newbeginnings #rhoc #trainingwheels #youdeservebetter,” Tamra wrote alongside a photo of her and Vicki.
That same day, Vicki revealed on her Instagram Story that she was struggling amid her breakup with Steve.
“I should be sleeping but my mind won’t shut off…one thing that people know about me is I don’t like changes. Lifting my thoughts up to God while I journal and pray for peace,” Vicki wrote.
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.
