Well, it looks like Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson's new boyfriend is getting along with Briana Culberson. For fans of the Bravo series who haven't heard, Vicki is seeing someone new and has been teasing her relationship on Instagram with a lot of romantic photos. Clearly, her love tank is being filled to her liking. Until Monday, the mystery man's name has been unknown, but according to Us Weekly, Vicki is dating Steve Lodge, a former police officer who is now working in Anaheim, California at a public affairs firm. As exciting as it is to put a name with a face, what might be even more thrilling for fans is that it sure seems like Vicki's daughter, Briana, approves of Steve.
Based on a photo Vicki shared on Instagram Saturday, she and Steve attended a Los Angeles Angels baseball game with Briana, her husband, Ryan Culberson, and their two children, Troy and Owen. Alongside the photo, Vicki wrote, "Go Angels! #perfectnight." As you'll notice, everyone has big smiles on their faces and truly seem to be enjoying themselves. I mean, Briana is even sitting next to Steve and by no means does it look like she's forcing that smile.
Now that Briana moved back to Orange County after living in Oklahoma for awhile, it's great to see that she can be part of Vicki's dating life. It really is a huge step for Briana.
As RHOC viewers know, Briana never liked her mom's ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers. I mean, she wouldn't even be in the same room as him that's how much she despised him. As for Steve, well, that definitely doesn't seem to be the case.
Despite the RHOC Season 11 trailer showing Vicki telling Brooks she loves him and Tamra Judge and Briana discussing Vicki possibly "stalking" someone, who I assume is Brooks, it sure looks like Vicki's personal life has a taken a positive turn. Let's just hope it stays that way, and I'm sure Briana feels the same exact way.
