Vicki Gunvalson Finds Out About an Ugly Rumor

Tamra Judge has never been one to hold anything back, but she had some especially strong opinions about Vicki Gunvalson's relationship with Steve Lodge in Monday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. 

How to Watch

While out with Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson, Tamra shared that she thinks Vicki doesn't really love Steve as the ladies discussed the OG of the RHOC's past and present love life during their night out. "I'm sorry, she does not love that man!" Tamra told Gina during the dinner. 

But now months later, Tamra seems to have changed her view of Vicki and Steve. "I take it back @vgunvalson loves Steve," Tamra tweeted during Monday's episode.

Vicki then thanked Tamra for taking back what she said about her relationship on Twitter. 

Tamra opened up more about how she originally came to that conclusion about Vicki and Steve and what has since changed her mind in her latest blog on "At this point, I’m just getting to know Vicki and Steve as a couple. One minute I’m rallying for Vicki and Steve to get married, the next minute I’m wondering does she really love him? Vicki has said things to me like, 'Do I need to be fixed up with the matchmaker?' When I say, 'NO,' she says, 'I’ll call you later.' That seems a little suspicious. Not a comment I would make if I were in a loving relationship," Tamra explained. "I’ve now been around Steve and Vicki for about eight months, and I would have to say that Vicki is truly in love. I’m very sorry to have made that comment, but sometimes my big mouth 'calls em like I sees em.'"

Vicki expressed confusion over Tamra's comment in her blog on "Tamra doesn’t know my relationship with Steve because she hasn’t been around us very often. She does know how happy he makes me, so why would she say that?" Vicki wrote. "Steve and I are very happy and have been together two and a half years. We love each other very much, and we don't have to prove it to any of these women." 

Since the RHOC crew has had a lot to say about Vicki's relationship this season, she took the opportunity to defend her romance when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday, making sure to note that she is definitely in love with her man. Vicki also addressed several other burning questions about her relationship that have come up this season, including whether or not she really wants to marry Steve, does she wish she was still married to ex-husband Donn Gunvalson, and does her hope for an engagement ring have anything to do with ex Brooks Ayers' recent wedding? Check it all out, below.
