vicki gunvalson has shared her ups and downs on “The Real Housewives of Orange County" over the years, and she was been fairly open about her divorce from Donn. Despite trying to save the relationship by having a vow renewal, Vicki had to realize that perhaps the relationship had changed after she started filming "The Real Housewives of Orange County." She has revealed that after her vow renewal, Donn had said that it was great TV for them and she realized that her romantic effort to keep her marriage alive had been nothing more than an effort to get higher ratings for him.

After their split, Vicki Gunvalson started dating Brooks Ayers, and as fans know, that relationship ended up being horrible for her. She was caught in a lie about having cancer, and he caused her to lose thousands of dollars as people started doubting her business ventures. Over the past couple of years, Vicki has worked hard to regain her brand and her credibility, and it sounds like she is back on track. She has found love with a man named Steve Lodge and Steve is someone who her daughter approves of. Ask Vicki has explained on "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Steve is someone who makes her very happy, and she could see herself being with him for the rest of her life.

Keeping things secret

According to a new tweet, Vicki Gunvalson is now speaking out about her relationship. On social media, Vicki hasn't been too open about her relationship with Steve, possibly because he is not a very public person. Even though Gunvalson has been in the spotlight since "The Real Housewives of Orange County" started airing on Bravo years ago, Steve may be a more private person who has no interest in using Vicki for her role on Bravo or to get fame himself.

Because of the lack of posts about Steve on her social media account, fans are now questioning whether these two are still together. On the show, Vicki keeps talking about how wonderful he is and how happy she makes her and fans really hope the best for them. On social media, Vicki explained that she was indeed very much in love with Steve and they continue to stay together.

With the support of her daughter, one can imagine that Vicki wants to do everything to make this relationship work as her daughter was not a fan of Brooks Ayers.

More respect from a man

One of the reasons why this relationship also works is because Steve treats Vicki's grandsons like his grandchildren. She loves how he can play with them and goof around with them when she's not available to do so, and they love that he treats them well. They help him cook meats on the barbecue, and they goof around in Vicki's backyard as their mother Briana is working. The relationship may also work very well because Steve has no interest in being in the spotlight and he is able to respect that "The Real Housewives of Orange County" is Vicki Gunvalson’s job, not something that he wants to exploit for his own gain.

What do you think about Vicki Gunvalson still being with Steve, even though she doesn't post about him so much on social media? Do you think he is the one for her in the long run?
