Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson introduced her new boyfriend Steve Lodge to viewers last week on the show and according to a new report after a new wave of backlash, Gunvalson is now keeping her relationship private.
If you are a Vicki fan and are hoping to see her new relationship blossom on the air, “that is not going to happen! Vicki does not want to destroy this relationship by bringing Steve on the show as a cast member,” an insider revealed, adding that it’s not just because Vicki wants to help hide his skeletons.
“Vicki just does not want to make the same mistake that she did with her ex, Brooks Ayers, by allowing him to be a regular on RHOC,” the source told RadarOnline. “Vicki is still very skeptical! She knows how much the rest of the girls would love to destroy her and Steve, just as they did with her and Brooks.”
Even though the network is pushing Vicki to bring Steve on the firm, she’s standing firm on her decision. “The network is begging her to bring Steve on to film a bunch of episodes but Vicki says she is not going to budge on this. She does not want fame to go to his head and change him like it changed Brooks,” the insider added.
According to the source, “She is absolutely happy right now and they are very much in love. Vicki and Steve are perfect for each other!”
“Vicki is head-over-heels for this guy and she does wants to get remarried one day,” said the source, adding, “Vicki wants the happily ever after. But what girl doesn’t?”
