Vicki Gunvalson accuses ex Steve Lodge of cheating, lying and using her

She goes big or she goes home, and she’s not going home.

Vicki Gunvalson spilled some serious tea on her recent breakup with ex-fiancé Steve Lodge, accusing him of infidelity and airing other grievances in a slew of scathing Instagram comments.

“He used me, he lied to me, he’s been dating a 36 year old and is not what he portrays himself to be. No Christian man would do what he’s done,” the “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum, 59, alleged on Friday under BFF Tamra Judge’s post supporting her.

In another comment, Gunvalson claimed, “While I was out of town working on a biz trip, [Lodge] took [the woman] to my condo in Mexico! He’s been flaunting around my town in OC making out in public places. It’s disgusting.”

When another user asked point-blank whether Lodge, 63, was “cheating,” the “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” star replied, “Yep.”

Judge, 54, then chimed in, replying, “@vickigunvalson while sleeping in your bed running for governor, using your followers. #unfollow.” (Lodge announced he was running for governor of California in June, but he received less than 1 percent of votes.)

In an exclusive statement to Page Six on Friday, Lodge alleged in part that he and Gunvalson have not been in a relationship since December 2020.

“The absolute lies she is now spreading on social media [are] very disappointing and disingenuous, to say the least. But I cannot say I’m surprised,” he told us. “She should not be dragging Tamra or anyone else into her lies. With that being said, I still wish her all the best.”

Gunvalson’s Instagram comments came after Judge posted a message urging her pal to “get out of bed” and “go whoop it up.”

“I hate to see you so sad,” she wrote. “he isn’t worth it girl. Especially after what you found out last night! You are beautiful , you are strong , you are smart! Don’t let anyone tell you any different.”

Gunvalson was clearly appreciative of Judge’s tribute, which she reposted to her own Instagram feed, where she continued to answer fans’ burning questions.

When one follower asked whether Lodge had a new girlfriend, the Bravolebrity gave her detailed thoughts on the matter.

“A 36 year old young chick / has had her for a while I guess,” she alleged. “Disgusting.”

Gunvalson also called the unnamed woman a “bad girl” and wrote that she had a “bad reputation.”

The OG of the OC even went so far as to encourage her 1.1 million followers to unfollow Lodge on the app, writing both, “Unfollow Steve if you are” and “Everyone needs to unfollow him.”

She also claimed that he had blocked her on Instagram.

Gunvalson announced her breakup with Lodge on Sept. 29, but she said then that there was “no fault with either person” and they were simply “going in different directions.”

“I wish him the best life has to offer and to be happy, and he has wished the same for me,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.

Lodge popped the question in April 2019 after asking his and Gunvalson’s six combined children from previous relationships for their blessing.

The former “Housewife” shares daughter Briana Culberson and Mike Wolfsmith with ex-husband Michael J. Wolfsmith, while the politician has four of his own kids.
