Before the Las Vegas weekend officially kicked off, Mercedes spent some time getting to know Vicki's beau. "So I met Vicki Gunvalson's new boyfriend last night," she explained during the interview, before revealing that she grilled him right away.

"I got to give him the third degree," she added. "[Vicki] encouraged it. She actually wanted me to."

Vicki Gunvalson Moves in with Michael Smith

Just a few weeks before BravoCon commenced, Vicki shared a serious update on her romance with Michael: The two just moved in together.

"We’re zero drama, we love each other immensely," she said during the October 12 episode of Access Hollywood’s Housewives Nightcap podcast. "And he just moved in to Coto [De Caza]. So he moved into my house, and we’re looking at what are we gonna do now."

Michael, who previously lived full-time in Texas, moved to California back in June 2023. However, he didn't move in with Vicki right away. 

“He just moved back from Texas,” Vicki told Page Six at the time, adding that Michael “[has] a place here.”

She noted that the two had wanted to "eventually" live together, but that they were "taking it slow" in the meantime.

Something clearly changed in the months that followed, as Vicki and Michael are officially cohabitating now.
