Vicki Gunvalson introduced her new man, Steve Chavez Lodge, to her friends and Real Housewives of Orange County fans during last Monday night's episode. But knowing that they haven't always gotten along with the OG's beaus in the past, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador sized Steve up to make sure he was fit to be with Vicki.
But that was something Vicki was completely prepared for. "It comes with the territory. I already pre-warned him the girls might interrogate you because I've had a past of picking bad people," she told one caller during Monday night's Watch What Happens Live (clip above). "He was OK with it. It was just awkward for me because it was like date three."
Luckily, that introduction didn't scare Steve off at all. In fact, he and Vicki are doing better than ever today. "He's amazing," Vicki told Andy Cohen. "It's like God gave him [to me]. I think my mom sent him down. He's incredible. He's incredible. My tank is full."
Vicki is of course referring to her famous barometer for how much she is in love with someone. During her last appearance on WWHL in June, Vicki told Andy that her love tank was "getting full" after beginning a relationship with Steve.
Vicki and Steve haven't been shy about their love for one another on social media, either.
Vicki's daughter, Briana Culberson, has also spent time with Steve and has given him "two thumbs up," the OG of the RHOC told The Daily Dish in June. "She really likes him, and it's really neat to have a family relationship, so I like it," Vicki said.
