Vicki Gunvalson is sharing new details about her split from Steve Lodge, including a “lie” she claims he told her while she was filming The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

“He sent me a text that he had moved out to his mother’s [house],” she explained on the July 19 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “That was a lie. He moved to his person’s house.”

Fellow guest Tamra Judge interjected to call that “person” his “girlfriend,” and Vicki continued, “I didn’t know he had a girlfriend. He was sleeping with me the day I left for Ultimate Girl’s Trip.” (Steve and his wife, Janis, were married in April.)

On RHUGT’s June 23 episode, Vicki discussed what her relationship with Steve was like leading up to their breakup. “A year ago, I bought a place in Mexico,” she said. “And he decided to live there more than California.”

Additionally, she shared that she decided to keep her engagement ring after they went their separate ways because she “bought it.”

“The ring that he could afford was not what I wanted,” she explained. “So I’m good with buying my own ring.”

New episodes of RHUGT Season 2 are available to stream every Thursday. Fans can catch up on Season 1 of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip on Peacock now.
