Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson ‘whopped it up’ at a surprise birthday party thrown for her last night by boyfriend Steve Lodge — less than one week after Gunvalson’s cancer-scamming ex dropped a wedding bombshell! Surrounded by her and Lodge’s family and friends, the 56-year-old O.G. from the O.C. made a very special wish this year when she blew out the candles on her birthday cake! Click through seven celebration photos, as RadarOnline.com exclusively reveals all the details inside her lavish birthday bash!
“Vicki was completely blown away and surprised last night,’ a source close to Gunvalson said. In this photo, the blonde beauty is all smiles surrounded by her family, as well as Lodge’s family!
But it was a very special guest, Gunvalson’s brother Billy (pictured on left), that “made her scream, ‘Oh my God,’” the insider revealed.
“The fact that Steve’s family was there and got along so well made Vicki certain that Steve is the man she is meant to be with forever,” the source told Radar. So what did Gunvalson wish for when she blew out the candles?
According to the source, it definitely wasn’t well-wishes for her cancer-scamming ex Brooks Ayers, who made her literally “LOL” when he got married in a shotgun wedding last weekend to his girlfriend of less than a year Christy Groves! “Vicki knows that this will be the best year ever and that she is going to be engaged by the time her next birthday rolls around,” the insider revealed.
“When she blew out her candles, Vicki wished for a ring of course,” the source told Radar. The source added that, unlike Ayers, “Vicki will be married to a man who is so in love with her and who she loves with all of her heart. He doesn’t care about her money because he has his own. He loves her for her!”
Earlier this week, Gunvalson shared a photo of this card on Instagram that was given to her by her late mother and “best-friend” Joanne Steinmetz. "I found this birthday card from my mom by accident last night in my nightstand. I guess it was her way of telling me Happy Birthday from heaven," she wrote.
