Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is reportedly “traumatized” after her broken engagement to Steve Lodge.
“Steve and Vicki had been living separately for much of the pandemic,” a source had told E!. “Steve had been living like he was a single man in Puerto Vallarta, while Vicki was in the U.S.”
Another source told US Weekly that Vicki has taken the breakup hard.
“Steve broke up with Vicki while she was filming the [Real Housewives] spinoff show in the Berkshires. After he told her this, she was traumatized. It ruined her. She didn’t want to be at the [Dorinda Medley’s] house anymore.”
The source added that Vicki is “still a mess” and is “not OK.” Steve has already moved out of their home.
“She’s in terrible shape. She still loves him,” the insider says. “They had not been getting along for a long time. He seemed disinterested in her for a very long time.”
