Lewis, who also is in a feud with Gunvalson, said on his radio show, "So, she's been demoted. Vicki Gunvalson has been demoted. I think the way she's behaved and the things she has done, she doesn't deserve our respect. And I'm glad she was demoted."

Dodd agreed, saying, "Obviously I am too."

But Gunvalson hasn't commented on the controversy and put her best face forward with her man Lodge im paradise.
