Vicki Gunvalson is “devasted” following her split from ex-fiancé Steve Lodge.
The Real Housewives of Orange County alum believes Steve “is already dating” and thinks he “used her for fame” during their six-year relationship, a source told The Sun.
The insider went on to claim that Vicki once thought Steve was her “soulmate” and that they would be “together for life.”
“Vicki and Steve talked about marrying in Puerto Vallarta. She bought the home so they could retire there. She is still madly in love with Steve. Most recently, Vicki supported his run for the California Governor campaign,” the source explained.
An already “devastated” Vicki was further crushed when she found out that Steve was seen out with a new woman.
“While Vicki was vacationing in Mexico last weekend, she found out that Steve was spotted with a woman looking very cozy at a restaurant that they had once frequented together,” the insider said.
The source added that those close to Vicki think Steve has “no shame” and was simply using the OG of the OC to gain fame and support for his now-failed gubernatorial campaign.
“Vicki believed in their future together and now she feels used. While Vicki is heartbroken, she is strong and able to pick up the pieces and move forward,” the source noted.
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021.
