Back in April, Vicki Gunvalson got engaged to her long-term boyfriend Steve Lodge. On the November 26 episode of the Real Housewives Of Orange County, the 57-year-old’s daughter, Briana Culberson, shared how she really felt about her mother’s big announcement.
“Yeah,” the 32-year-old said when asked if she’s happy about the engagement. “I think she’s super happy.” Briana revealed that her mother has found her true match.
In the past, Briana admitted that Vicki’s previous relationships lacked the necessary building blocks. “My mom’s relationship with Donn Gunvalson was good. She married Donn when I was 6 and my brother was 7 and they raised us together. I just don’t feel like they were ever truly in love.”
She continued, “And then I think with Brooks Ayers, my mom had all passion and nothing else. There was no respect and nothing else that makes a true relationship.”
While speaking with her girlfriends, Vicki revealed that Steve, 61, popped the question while she ate dinner in her pajamas. “Steve said, 'You know what? I just want to be with you. And I want to ask you, from the bottom of my heart, if you'll marry me.' And I started crying and then he started crying.” She continued, “'He's like, ‘Well, it's been three years almost to the day. And I love you, and my family loves you. Everybody blessed us, and I want you to be my wife.’ I said, ‘Absolutely, yes!’”
Tamra Judge was also overjoyed by the big news and suggested that the girls celebrate in Miami, Florida.
Back in June, Vicki shared hints about where she might be tying the knot. On Instagram, she asked her followers to vote whether or not the ceremony should take place at the local Orange County hotspot Coto de Zaza & Racquet Club. The Bravo celebrity also asked fans whether or not she should televise their nuptials.
