Vicki Gunvalson shares a relationship update

While chatting with Page Six, Vicki confirmed that she’s taken a serious step with her beau: The two are now residing in the same area. 

“He just moved back from Texas,” Vicki told the outlet about how Michael had relocated to Southern California and now “[has] a place here.”

She revealed the hilarious reason Michael decided to take the plunge and move back to the Golden State full time. 

“I might’ve had to ask him,” Vicki said.

The RHOC alum and Michael aren’t exactly living together yet, though being in the same state has taken their relationship to the next level. 

“We will eventually [live together] if we keep this going,” The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip alum added, noting that the couple is “taking it slow.”

Tamra sheds light on Vicki’s and Shannon’s dating lives

Vicki’s close pal Tamra Judge chatted with about the RHOC OG’s relationship with Michael, and about how the third member of the Tres Amigas, Shannon Storms Beador, is doing in the wake of her split from John Janssen

“Vicki’s had a boyfriend for about a year now, I think  a year, year and a half,” Tamra told before directing her attention Shannon, who confirmed her breakup from John in January (though the two actually split in November 2022). “Shannon is single right now and dating. She doesn’t have really anybody right now. She doesn’t have a boyfriend.”

As Shannon herself told Page Six, she may be single, but she’s on good terms with her ex.
