Vicki Gunvalson is going to great lengths to save her full-time position on The Real Housewives of Orange County. The “OG of the OC” reportedly plans on staging an engagement and a wedding to longtime boyfriend Steve Lodge in order to do so! Read on for all the details.
“She saved herself with the engagement and wedding promise for Season 14,” a production source revealed to RadarOnline.com, adding, “Expect her to really whoop it up like never before!”
Vicki isn’t the only one desperate to stay on the show. Turns out her man is too. “Although Steve says he does not like the spotlight, when he thought that she may not return during negotiations he told her that he will get engaged on-air and allow them to film the wedding for the upcoming season,” the production insider continued.
Rumors swirled that Vicki was being demoted to part-time housewife after Jeff Lewis shared claims about the alleged ordeal on his SiriusXM show on Friday, February 8.
Vicki’s former RHOC friend Kelly Dodd later called into Jeff’s show, where she seemingly confirmed the demotion allegations.
The mother-of-two confirmed that she was filming season 14 on her Instagram on Sunday, February 16. She thanked Evolution Media, the company that produces RHOC, for the bouquet of flowers after her first day of shooting.
Vicki also teased that an engagement was in the works when she went ring shopping with Steve during their trip to The Bahamas on Monday, February 11.
