'RHOC's Vicki Gunvalson Calls Ex Steve Lodge A 'Fame Whore' After He Announces Engagement

Vicki Gunvalson's ex-fiance Steve Lodge is newly engaged and she's not happy about it.

"I really don't want to give him any more publicity," she told Page Six. "He's a fame whore."

Lodge proposed to Janis Carlson in December.

Vicki announced her split from Lodge in September after five years together. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum opened up about ending her two-plus-year engagement from Steve in an emotional Instagram post.

According to Vicki, Steve was cheating with another woman and would sneak the woman into Vicki's Mexican condo when she was away on business.

"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," a source told US WEEKLY.
