Vicki Gunvalson seems to be ready to take the next step with her boyfriend Steve Lodge.
During a new interview with the Daily Mail, the 56-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star, who is the longest-running Real Housewives star of all time, opened up about her relationship with Lodge, who she's been dating for the past two years.
"I'm incredibly in love [with Steve]. I definitely got a quality man which I wanted and prayed for, after what I'd been through in my marriages and past relationships," Gunvalson said. "I'm just extremely happy and fortunate."
Gunvalson and Lodge began dating after the reality star's controversial romance with Brooks Ayers came to an end in summer 2015. As fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County will recall, Gunvalson's former boyfriend was accused of lying about his cancer diagnosis and later admitted to fabricating medical documents to prove his reported lies.
Although Gunvalson insisted that she was unaware of her boyfriend's lies, a number of her co-stars turned against her as a result of her relationship with Ayers and she is still working to rebuild the friendships she once had with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador.
After learning from her past mistakes with Ayers, Gunvalson said that when it came to her new relationship, she wanted complete honesty and "wasn't going to put up with any bulls**t."
