Vicki Gunvalson Is Briana's OC Husband

They say it takes a village, and for Vicki Gunvalson and her family, that is definitely the case. This entire The Real Housewives of Orange County family is banding together to help support Briana Culberson and her husband, Ryan, in raising their two sons. As you can see in this preview from the upcoming Season 12 of RHOC, Vicki and Briana bond over playing mom and dad to the youngins.

"It's hard having toddlers with my spouse being out of state," Briana tells her mama, with Vicki adding, "It's OK. I'm your spouse... I totally take care of the children whenever I can."

As we learn in the clip above, Vicki's boyfriend, Steve Chavez Lodge, has also been spending time with the little ones much to their delight. And Briana totally approves of her mom's man. "It's so nice to like my mom's boyfriend for once. Steve is totally a saint. He has a job, he doesn't hit on me," she said, with a laugh.

Vicki confirmed on social media that Steve has been playing a very active role in her family's life. "What a great guy! Steve picked up the boys from school while I was working & helped them make a wooden car and then had them plant a garden," she shared on Instagram. She added, "#greatman #boyslovehim #i[heart]him #rhoc #simplethings #notv #mygrandsons."

He's also spent nights out with Vicki, Briana, and Ryan.

Always fun being with Briana and @heathermcdonald @ryan_culberson @lodge4anaheim
