Reality star Vicki Gunvalson is back for another emotionally charged season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” The original Housewife sat down with “Extra’s” Mario Lopez at Universal Studios Hollywood to dish on the new man in her life and the new season!
As for what fans can expect on the show, the 55-year-old shared, “I'm franchising my business and I have a man that is solid. And he's good and he loves me.”
“So that’s what we all want right? I took a year, no dating, only a couple of platonic dates, but I was ready to be in another relationship, so, God has a plan,” she added.
Who’s the special guy? Former police officer Steve Lodge, who has helped Vicki move on from her cancer con man ex, Brooks Ayers.
Her relationship with some of the ladies, however, is not so good —she feuded with Tamara Judge on last night’s premiere. Vicki pointed out that the worst rumor she has ever heard about herself is the one Judge started. She revealed, “That I was a con woman! It’s so ridiculous, I was conned.”
Vicki, the last leading lady standing from the Season 1 cast — the OG of the franchise — said, “Nobody's been on longer than me.” On her state of mind after shooting the drama-filled season 12, Vicki commented, “I’m very sensitive so things do affect me, but you have to learn to ricochet it off.”
Gunvalson also dropped a spoiler alert after being hospitalized as the result of an off-roading mishap in the California desert last season, saying, “You'll see me go off in another ambulance.”
