The Real Housewives of Orange County star faced an ordeal at the airport with beau Steve Lodge, her daughter Briana, Briana's husband Ryan Culberson, and their kids, Gunvalson's grandchildren.
Gunvalson, 56, posted a photo on Saturday, December 29 of the exhausted-looking group standing in front of an airport Christmas tree with their luggage.
Gunvalson wrote as a caption, "We're stuck in the airport, flight has been delayed now over 6 hours! Worse case we'll have to rent a FAMILY VAN and drive through the night to Orlando! Disney Cruise or bust! #familyvan #wherearethecameraswhenweneedthem #familyadventure #alwayschaos @stevelodge_oc @ryan_culberson."
Luckily, they eventually made it, as Gunvalson's son-in-law Ryan later shared an Instagram photo of himself smiling on a ship with Briana, 31.
He captioned it, "So you're telling me all I have to do is smoke these cigars drink this whiskey and hang out with my beautiful wife while someone else drives? Deal!"
Briana's relationship with her loving but controlling mom has been a staple of RHOC.
Gunvalson was sure to enjoy time with her daughter, who has battled lupus, her son-in-law, and grandkids.
But Lodge also appeared to be going on the cruise despite Radar's exclusive report about how she felt "betrayed" by his divorce secrets.
After Radar blew the lid of Lodge's numerous divorces — from ex-wife Karla Lodge in 2005 and Tonya Compton in 2013 — a source close to RHOC told Radar, "All of this stuff coming out about Steve's past marriages have thrown Vicki for a headspin because she didn't know all of it.
"She knew that Steve and his exes did not end on good terms, but these details that are coming out and that are undeniable have really caused some serious issues between them."
Still, the first lady of Bravo stood smiling with her man as they prepared for a New Year's holiday.
And sources previously told Radar that Gunvalson has thought seriously about walking down the aisle with Lodge despite her own two previous marriage failures.
Could a wedding be in the offing as they ring in 2019?
