Former ‘RHOC’ Star Vicki Gunvalson Wonders Whether A Relationship With Steve Lodge Played A Role In Her Firing

Vicki Gunvalson believes her relationship with fiancé Steve Lodge may have been the nail in the coffin when in terms of her former full-time position on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

During a recent episode of her podcast series — Whoop It Up with Vicki, which was transcribed by Reality Blurb over the weekend — Vicki opened up about the way in which Bravo may have lost interest in her life due to the calm that Steve brought to it.

“Do you think… that I became happy and content, so to speak, and not a lot of drama? Do you think that the producers and Bravo thought that my life is too normal now?” Vicki wondered on her show, which was launched earlier this year after she announced she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 15.

While Vicki seemed to think that she had become too “normal” for the reality series, Steve, who was appearing alongside her during the podcast episode, informed her that she is “not normal” at all. He then suggested that a Vicki-only spinoff would be a ratings hit for any network.

“If you had a camera following you around everyday it would be the No. 1 show in the nation,” he proclaimed.

Vicki continued on, questioning if Steve’s role in her life may have impacted her position on the series — telling her listeners that Steve is “on the boring level” and “not a ‘whoop it up’ kind of guy.” She then said that Bravo may have thought that Steve’s calm demeanor was bringing her typically wild personality down.

According to Vicki, she may have blamed Steve for her firing from The Real Housewives of Orange County on occasion, as she believed he wasn’t controversial enough for the series. She then admitted that Steve’s tendency to stay in the very safe lane is something that she loves about him.–DPBg/

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Vicki and Steve were supposed to get married earlier this year. However, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, they were forced to postpone their nuptials.

While appearing on an Instagram live chat with Hollywood Life earlier in 2020, Vicki said that she had previously told her fans and followers that Steve wanted to say “I do” on a cruise ship in April. However, she apparently shut down the idea because she didn’t want to plan a wedding with concerns for their guests’ health hanging overhead.

“No. We’re doing nothing. I told him the wedding’s off. We’re doing nothing,” she confirmed.
