Vicki Gunvalson is back on the dating scene. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum shared an update on her love life following her recent split from ex-fiance, Steve Lodge.

Vicki opened up about re-entering the dating pool in the January 20 episode of Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Tamra Judge’s podcast, Two T’s in a Pod. The mom of two revealed that she’s hired a matchmaker to help her a partner and that she’s already begun casually seeing someone as a result.

“I’m on my fourth date with a guy from Chicago with the matchmaker,” the RHOC alum said.  “He’s picking me up from the airport when I get to Chicago. [He] and I are gonna see each other next week when I’m in town.”

Vicki also shared some of the top qualities she’s looking for in a significant other, listing attributes such as “non-smoker,” “family man,” and “self-sufficient.”
