Vicki really needs a win when it comes to her Love Tank, and I think every fan of the show can agree that she deserves to find the man of her dreams.
There are some long-term relationships that end, but on some level, both parties will always feel affection for each other. Just this week, Vicki did not mince words about how little affection she has for her ex, because apparently playing diss tracks about her rival isn't conflict for her. But most people don't date someone for that he doesn't care what Vicki Gunvalson thinks.
Lodge allegedly told a woman named Tonya Compton that he would “kill Mr. Lodge is a volatile individual who has assaulted me,” he wrote. I am worried that he may retaliate, stalk or assault me in between the hearing and the time I can get him served.” Thomas also asked for protection against Lodge for his wife, two daughters and father-in-law.
“I am afraid that he may retaliate against my family with whom I reside,” the restraining order read.
Plus it's a good look for Vicki to actually be dating someone who seems like a great guy.
He is listed as the Principal of Chamus & Associates, which is a "full service Public Affairs firm." They seems to specialize in real life crisis management situations and crisis prevention.
Spending time with Vicki's grandsons is a pretty big deal (and getting their approval), so that makes it seem as though the couple is pretty serious.
And yet another sign that Vicki and Steve are the real deal is Briana asking if they're going to get married in the season premiere.
Though note that he says "thinks says." It may be that Brooks Ayers is suggesting that Vicki might not be saying exactly what she thinks.
Though he does seem to mean that he doesn't care about either because she's no longer relevant to his life.
"I’ve moved on with my life." That sounds like a healthy, functional level of detachment, right?
