'RHOC's Emily Simpson 'Wasn't Surprised' By Vicki Gunvalson's Breakup

RHOC's Emily Simpson says she wasn't surprised when she heard that Vicki Gunvalson had ended her engagement to Steve Lodge.

"I wasn't surprised [about their split] just because when we were at her engagement party I remember talking to Vicki's brother and her brother told me at the engagement party that they were never gonna get married and [Steve] wasn't into her. So I was like, 'Wow, that was a lot,'" Emily said on Us Weekly's "Getting Real with the Housewives" podcast. "I felt like he was an opportunist and I think the red flags were there."

Lodge is already engaged to another woman. Vicki has blasted him as a "fame whore."

"I just think Vicki wanted her love tank filled and she wanted it to work out and she wanted to see the best in him," Emily added. "She thought they had a future together, but I think he was, you know, in it for the camera time or whatever, and then he moved on. So, you know, I feel badly for her."
