Vicki Gunvalson is notorious for saying exactly what's on her mind and not holding back. She hasn't made any exceptions for frenemy Kelly Dodd. Even though Gunvlason only has a friend role on the currently airing season of 'Real Housewives of Orange County,' she is still making sure that her opinion is being heard.
Gunvalson has made it clear that she is not in favor of Kelly Dodd's sudden engagement to boyfriend, Rick Leventhal, whom she's only dated for three months.
Gunvalson isn't quite sure why Kelly Dodd got engaged so quickly. While she throws out a couple of possible suspicions, the one thing that Vicki is clear about is that she doesn't approve of it.
“Is it a storyline?” Gunvalson mused. “Is it because she has to be with him, like, in a marriage situation, right away? She’d known him three months? I don’t understand that. What’s the rush? I mean, it’s a very responsible thing to do, to be married.”
Gunvalson then went on to criticize Dodd's parenting choices. She mentions how she believes Dodd's daughter, Jolie, has barely interacted with Rick and hardly knows him.
“She’s has a 13-year-old daughter. I don’t believe Rick has ever spent a lot of time with [daughter] Jolie, if at all. If my mother got re-married and I was 13, I’d want to know who she’s marrying and spend time with them.” Vicki explained. “I don’t understand the rush. I don’t understand the motive, I don’t understand the rush.”
Vicki's calling the kettle black a bit with this one. Vicki spent years in a toxic relationship with Brooks, a man who faked having cancer and her daughter, Briana, didn't like or trust. Regardless Vicki kept dating him and ignored her daughter's concerns.
Vicki has now moved on to a more stable relationship with fiance Steve Lodge.
“We’re married in our eyes just not in the eyes of God, yet,” she explained. “We haven’t done our vows or anything. We live together. We’ve lived together for two and a half years. There’s no red flags on my end, none on his end.”
They haven't announced a wedding date yet, but aim to tie the knot in 2020. Vicki was sure to use her current situation as ammo against Kelly.
“I don’t know anything,” Vick claimed told Reality Blurb. “Really, I’m handicapped because I don’t understand it. I mean, she just started dating him. She already asked [ex] Brian [Reagan] last season if she could get married. She wants to be married, so did I, but we’re almost four years in.”
Vicki also added that she has been living with Steve for the past two and a half years.
