Apparently, Michael had been emotionally struggling amid the divorce drama, so when Vicki hosted a recent dinner party, Michael and a friend of Vicki. “really hit it off because they both have awful exes,” reports Page Six.
Michael and Kelly, 44, are currently in the middle of a nasty divorce battle with the former couple fighting for custody of their 12-year-old daughter, Jolie.
Michael and Vicki’s friend became acquainted before the dinner party. “Vicki FaceTimed with her boyfriend Steve [Lodge]” during a Vegas getaway and, “He and Michael are really good friends and Michael was with him so they waved ‘hi.’ Michael said he was having a rough time, and the women said they felt awful.”
The news did not sit well with Dodd, who lashed out on Twitter — slamming Vicki (and Steve Lodge) for introducing Michael to her friend. The now deleted tweet read, “Steve Lodge is a douche bag along with his pig of a GF!! And I am 42 years old not 44years old!”
Adding to the drama, the woman Vicki set Michael up with was also a friend of Kelly’s at one point.
Michael’s new love interest “doesn’t want to be dragged into Kelly’s mess” so she’s “being really careful” while “having fun.” Additionally, “Vicki’s scared too because she has to film with Kelly,” the insider revealed.
Reportedly, Michael’s new love interest does not want to be on the RHOC and declined an offer to be on another franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
