Steve Lodge is making some wild yet totally believable claims about his ex-fiancée Vicki Gunvalson.
In a new interview with HollywoodLife, Steve opens up about his breakup with Vicki and insists the OG of the OC is “showing her true colors” with her latest claims about their split.
Steve claims Vicki “bought” the engagement ring that he used to propose to her in 2018.
“I think I was being used as a storyline [on RHOC],” he said. “I’m not famous nor do I want to be. I wanted my life back. She is showing her true colors now.”
As for Vicki’s latest allegations that he cheated on her during their relationship, Steve said the claims are nothing more than Vicki trying to do anything she can to get back on the Real Housewives of Orange County.
“She’s looking for attention to get back on a show, any show, and she just doesn’t understand the word no. I told her a long time ago I was done [with our relationship]. She kept hounding me relentlessly, but I kept saying I was done. I’ve moved on and she obviously hasn’t. Her recent comments [about me cheating] aren’t true. I just want her to leave me and my family alone. They don’t want to hear it anymore,” he said.
Over the weekend, Vicki accused Steve 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. 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.”
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021.
