Vicki Gunvalson and Steve Lodge’s split keeps getting messier and messier by the day!
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star has accused her ex-fiancé Steve Lodge of cheating on her with a younger woman.
On Instagram, Vicki claimed, “He used me, he lied to me, he’s been dating a 36-year-old and is not what he portrays himself to be. No Christian man would do what he’s done.”
Vicki’s BFF and former c0star Tamra Judge chimed in, adding, “While sleep in your bed, running for governor using your followers.”
The OG of the OC then elaborated further on Steve’s alleged wicked ways.
“While I was out of town working on a biz trip, he took her to my condo in Mexico! He’s been flaunting around my town in OC making out in public places. It’s disgusting,” she explained.
After Vicki’s claims went viral, Steve fired back and denied the accusations. He also made some wild yet totally believable claims about Vicki.
Steve denies that he ever cheated on Vicki and insists she can’t accept their breakup, which really went down in December 2020 – not in September 2021 when it was publicly announced.
“Vicki and I ended our engagement and relationship in December of 2020,” Steve told Page Six. “I did this in person verbally and explained it to her in writing. I wanted to move on with my life and I could not do that with Vicki. I’m sorry that Vicki can not except [sic] this, but it was time.”
“The absolute lies she is now spreading on social media is very disappointing and disingenuous, to say the least,” he continued. “But I can not say I’m surprised. She should not be dragging Tamra or anyone else into her lies. With that being said, I still wish her all the best.”
As for claims he cheated on Vicki while staying in her condo in Mexico, Steve said, “I have been living in Puerto Vallarta in my own condo, not hers since the beginning of 2021.”
Vicki responded to Steve’s claims in a statement to Page Six, “He is correct, that he rented a 1 bedroom condo in the complex that I purchased a home in for our retirement in April. He continued to stay with me when I was there, but physically moved out of both my homes 3 weeks ago. Yes, he is right about wanting to “move on with his life”, but still living together gave me hope that we would be OK.”
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021.
