Vicki Gunvalson Claims Ex Steve Lodge 'Used' Her: He 'Is Not What He Portrays Himself to Be'

Vicki Gunvalson may be single, but her relationship drama appears to be far from over.

Less than a month after announcing her split from fiancé Steve Lodge, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star has accused him of using her in order to gain attention and being deceitful about his dating life — claims Lodge adamantly denies.

The accusations were brought to light after Gunvalson responded to pal Tamra Judge's Instagram post, where she appeared to hint at the drama between the former couple.

"I hate to see you so sad. He isn't worth it girl," Judge, 54, captioned her post on Friday. "...You are beautiful, you are strong, you are smart! Don't let anyone tell you any different. I will be screening all guys that want to date Ms. Gunvalson in the future. New show idea: 'filling Vicki's love tank' as we drive to different cities in a FAMILY VAN in search of Mr. Right - whooping it up."

Gunvalson replied and expressed her appreciation for Judge's words, even joking about her habit of picking the wrong men.

"Thanks Tamra. Yes, I'm passing the baton on to you," Gunvalson, 59, wrote in a comment captured by Comments by Bravo. "My picker is obviously off."

Responding to a fan who requested "the deets" on what Lodge did, Gunvalson claimed: "He used me, he lied to me. He's been dating a 36-year-old and is not what he portrays himself to be. No Christian man would do what he's done."

"While sleeping in your bed running for governor, using your followers. #unfollow," Judge added.

In a second comment, Gunvalson claimed Lodge once took his alleged girlfriend to the reality star's condo in Mexico while she was out of town — which he also denies.

"He's been flaunting around my town in OC making out in public places," she wrote. "It's disgusting."

Lodge has denied Gunvalson's allegations in a statement to PEOPLE, saying that while he's disappointed in the "lies she is now spreading on social media," he wishes his ex "all the best."

"Vicki and I ended our engagement and relationship in December of 2020. I did this in person verbally and explained it to her in writing," he said. "We had not been in an intimate relationship since September of 2020. I have been living in Puerto Vallarta in my own condo, not hers since the beginning of 2021. We remained friends, but it was clear to me Vicki was still wanting more, which I told her was not possible."

"I wanted to move on with my life and I could not do that with Vicki. I'm sorry that Vicki can not accept this, but it was time," he continued. "The absolute lies she is now spreading on social media is very disappointing and disingenuous, to say the least. But I can not say I'm surprised. She should not be dragging Tamra or anyone else into her lies. With that being said, I still wish her all the best."

Gunvalson has not returned PEOPLE's request for comment.

Gunvalson and Lodge began dating after her 2015 split from ex Brooks Ayers. The former couple got engaged in April 2019 after three years together, but they later postponed their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The time has come for Steve and I to move forward or move on and we are …. moving on," Gunvalson wrote on Instagram at the time. "There is no fault with either person, we are just going in different directions. I wish him the best life has to offer and to be happy, and he has wished the same for me."

She never should have left Donn. The sad old cow can’t find anyone who wants to be near her.

Is Vicki short for Victim?

Vicky is the complete OPPOSITE of a Christian.

The more she talks about religion, the more repulsive she becomes.

This bitch deserves a smiting.

He got sick of her overpowering old-lady odor! LOLZ

Leave it to Vicki to consistently choose grifting sociopaths.

Did she pay for his new teeth, too?

I can't stand Vicki, but why is he living in her condo past the time of the breakup, past the time of their "intimate relationship"?

Vicki can only attract grifters.

Donn Gunvalson is not holding back!

[quote] Steve moved out all of his stuff while Vicki was filming #RHUGT so he wouldn’t have to see her. No joke

She doesn't have a bad picker. She's a fucking scag and like attracts like and she gets exactly what she deserves wrt men. Frankly, I am shocked she's not with someone who regularly punches her in her fat hypocritical mouth.

Donn does not like Erika Jayne, either. You guys have got to read his Twitter, posted above. He comments on Rinna, too.

by Anonymousreply 17October 15, 2021 9:47 PM

Pretty sure Donn's Twitter is a parody account.

Damn, at R15.

I never knew Don was so SHADY!

Bwaahaha. I love it.

That’s a parody account

But I have a feeling the real Donn Gunvalson feels the same way

Oh, shit. What the hell. Parody account? Why? Thanks.

I love it when Vicki's friends have to pretend that she's a decent person deserving of love.

I don't think Tamra is considered a "friend."

Vicki is an obnoxious old cunt who, for some bizarre reason, seems to believe that she is the most awesome human being who ever lived. Like the rest of the RHOC cast, she doesn't have one redeemable quality: she is stupid, talentless, petty, mean, a pathological liar, a raging narcissist, aggressive, cowardly and a backstabbing bitch who looks manlier than Caitlyn Jenner and Alexis Arquette put together (she certainly is as pathetic as those two bags of chaotic mental illness).

However, I cannot insult Vicki without also disparaging that rabid demon Tamra, the venomous Alexis, the impossibly idiotic Gretchen, the utterly delusional Heather and all the other rotten sows who have ever joined that franchise. I don't know how Bravo does it, but they consistently find the most ODIOUS personalities imaginable to join the OC branch of the Real Housemonsters show. Most other RH shows have at least one decent human being (Kandi Burruss, Eileen Davidson, Dorinda Medley), but not the OC one...

As for Vicki being preyed upon by sociopaths, she attracts them because they see that she is dumber than a piece of wood, and anyone can get anything out of her as long as they lie and tell her that she is desirable and a fantastic person.

I never really thought of it that way, but this is correct. I've always found the OC women to be the most provincial, closed-minded, bad politics, etc.

Isn't Vicki's insurance company MLM-based? Who the fuck wants to buy "Coto Insurance" when there's State Farm, USAA, Hartford, etc.? It's a grift (Vicki's insurance), it seems.

Yet, Vicki is so sad and desperate that she can't spot a grift.

That is actually Donn's account but to stay out of trouble it's labeled a "parody" account. For a while Jason, the ex of the Barfster, did the same thing and spilled some juicy gossip but he got caught out during the custody battle and had to close it down. Yes I hate that I know this shit, but can't remember my driver's license number.

Donn was/is too good for her.

From day one there were rumors that Lodge guy was screwing her over. Couldn't happen to a bigger cunt.

Makes sense that it's really Donn. Who would bother to make a Donn Gunvalson parody account.

Who's the Barfster? When it comes to Real Housewives, that doesn't narrow it down much.

There's no way that twitter account is the real Donn. Do you think he really watches Bravo?

Hell, yes, Donn watches.

What ever happened to her bossy son in law and loser daughter? Are they still at her withered teat?

by Anonymousreply 36October 16, 2021 2:35 AM

r36 They stay as FAR away from her as possible, the daughter is still close to Donn. That son in law always struck me as a domestic abuser type though but maybe that was editing.
