Click through 7 photos of Gunvalson with her new boyfriend, Steve Lodge, as a source close to the couple tells RadarOnline.com exclusively how she fell so hard, so fast — and whether her friends are worried!
Woo Hoo! Gunvalson is definitely not shy when it comes to showing off her new boyfriend! But as the happy new couple continue to flaunt the PDA, a source close to Gunvalson said that she is not at all worried that Lodge has a dark past.
As Radar reported, Lodge – who works as a consultant and a public affairs firm in Anaheim, Calif – retired from the police force in Santa Clara, Calif., after being accused of assault and battery twice! The cases were eventually dismissed.
"She is very much in love with Steve. This guy is a real charmer and he has won over Vicki, her friends and her family," a source close to Gunvalson said.
"Of course he buys her flowers and pay for everything, but it is more than that. The way that Steve looks at Vicki and makes her feel like she is the only woman alive, that is what all women want!" the insider said. "When the two of them are together, he is incredibly affectionate and is touching her non-stop. It is really cute!"
As fans of RHOC know, after Gunvalson and Ayers split last fall amid his drawn-out cancer scam, the housewives beauty was an emotional wreck.
"Steve has been able to break down the walls that Vicki built up after Brooks," the source told Radar. "It is just good to see her happy and everyone that knows her is happy for her. Especially after what Brooks put her through."
