Vicki Gunvalson is calling out Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge after Monday’s episode!
Vicki Gunvalson, 56, and her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, double-dated with Kelly’s ex, Michael Dodd, and a woman he met at Vicki’s home. Steve clarified misconceptions about the date with a tabloid — which had Kelly Dodd seeing red, and she confronted Vicki’s boyfriend at Tamra Judge’s house.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star took to her Bravo blog to address how Tamra and Kelly’s actions deeply hurt her.
“Watching this week’s episode felt like a stab in the back. Kelly and I used to be really good friends, but ever since her and Michael got divorced, our friendship has gone separate ways. The obvious reason is she’s upset because Steve and I maintained our friendship with Michael and are closer with him instead of her.”
“As I mentioned in last week’s blog, Steve and Michael formed a very strong friendship while Kelly and Michael were married. After their divorce, Michael has relied on Steve as a support system. I am not going to tell Steve who to be friends with, just like he would not tell me who to be friends with. We are adults and can make decisions without being influenced by anyone else.”
“As you can see, their friendship bothers Kelly, and this is why she continues to lash out against us.”
The 56-year-old entrepreneur explains that Kelly’s ill-treatment of Michael Dodd during their marriage, was a factor in distancing herself from her RHOC co-star.
“After I witnessed first-hand how terrible she treated Michael, I started to pull back.”
According to the OG of the OC, separating herself from Kelly, prompted the RHOC hothead to spread false stories about Vicki’s man, Steve Lodge.
“Now she’s attacking my relationship and spreading lies about us just to make herself feel better. Kelly’s anger and uncontrolled temper is extremely toxic. When, and if, she can learn to control her temper, I’ll be there for her too.”
Tamra Judge also said some words in the episode that attacked Vicki’s romance with Steve — Vicki points out Tamra’s contradictions.
“It also really hurt me to see Tamra say, “She doesn’t love Steve” at the dinner with Emily, Gina, and Shannon. Wasn’t it just last week after the golf outing she told Steve, “You need to marry Vicki”? Which one is it, Tamra? One week you’re saying we should get married and the next week you’re saying I don’t love him? Tamra doesn’t know my relationship with Steve because she hasn’t been around us very often. She does know how happy he makes me, so why would she say that? “
Vicki exposes Tamra’s hypocrisy about relationships being off-limits.
“And wasn’t it Tamra who said when you talk crap about your man “game on”?! I vowed to Tamra, and have stuck to my word, that I would not talk badly about her or her relationship with Eddie, because I have no reason to hurt them and I want them happy. She agreed the same thing to me. It’s like every time I turn around, someone is trying to cause issues with me. Why? If you notice, I have shut my mouth and have been out of gossiping, especially when it comes to our relationships, because it’s none of my business.”
The Coto Insurance owner calls out Kelly Dodd’s duplicity about dating.
“The fact that Kelly and Tamra are now spreading rumors he’s only with me for my money is laughable. Steve has his own money, and I have my own money. It’s such a hypocritical statement coming out of Kelly’s mouth, because she is the one who said she will only date a man if he has money. That’s not me. I could care less about what the size of anyone’s pocketbook is, and furthermore how does she know how much money we have? She doesn’t, so she is completely out of line (again!)”
Vicki ends her blog by reiterating her relationship with Steve Lodge is still going strong and they’re in love.
“Steve and I are very happy and have been together two and a half years. We love each other very much, and we don’t have to prove it to any of these women.”
