Put A Ring On It! Vicki Drops Wedding Bombshell On Boyfriend Steve

Vicki Gunvalson is not beating around the bush when it comes to her desire to walk down the aisle with boyfriend Steve Lodge!

On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the 56-year-old O.G. from the O.C. dropped the wedding bomb on her Steve, telling him, "I am not going to date you forever!"

The episode started off with new cast members Gina Kirschenheither, 34, and Emily Simpson, 53, discussing the viewing party they held at Kelly Dodd's house the day before, for co-star Shannon Beador's QVC launch.

"Shannon is the sun and we all just revolve around Shannon. And I am like fu***ng Pluto," said Gina, who is in the midst of her divorce from Matt.

"It doesn't bother me to think about him dating. It bothers me to think about me being alone," Gina told Emily.

"Make it temporary and see how it works. Try it out for six months," Emily told her.

Emily then changed the topic to tell Gina not to destroy her last nine frozen embryos — despite the fact that she almost died after five miscarriages.

The scene then switched to Tamra Judge, 51, at home with hubby Eddie, who was taking a test to see if his latest surgery to correct atrial fibrillation was a success. Sadly, the test showed that the problem still existed.

"When he first got diagnosed, they all said, 'It's going to be a breeze. We are going to go in and do this and this and this and he will be fine,'" said Tamra. "Almost a year later, we are finding out that he must have had heart issues for a long time."

Things took a lighter turn when Shannon, 54, returned from promoting her Real for Real Cuisine in Philadelphia. To celebrate her arrival, she decided to have all of the girls over for a dinner party. Everyone agreed and complimented Shannon on her new digs, but Gina was not too happy to be there.

"I am honestly trying so hard to be friends with Shannon. She can ask me how my friggin day was. She doesn't have to ask my social security number," said Gina in her confessional.

To celebrate Shannon's big new gig, the ladies discussed taking a cast trip to Jamaica.

"I've never been to Jamaica. The things I am looking forward to the most are number one the food, and number to the herb," Kelly said, referring to marijuana.

"I get sad because the last trip that I was supposed to go on was with Matt, I bought all these bikinis. I have all these bikinis," Gina said.

Gina finally let her emotions surrounding her divorce be shown and broke down in tears in front of Vicki and the other girls.

"I miss my in-laws. I miss my sister-in-law. I miss everybody. I am scared that I am not going to see anyone again. And I'm scared," Gina said through tears, while getting consoled by Emily.

"I don't know Gina very well. I am very sorry that she is going through a divorce, but I think that Gina needs to lower her expectations in her divorce," Shannon said in confessional after hearing Gina's meltdown.

"I am noticing a pattern in Shannon's behavior of her not really caring about me at all," Gina said in confessional.

While toasting to dinner, Shannon said, "Let's go to Jamaica." And just like that, the cast decided they were headed to Jamaica.

The following day, Kelly Dodd, 42, and her teen daughter, Jolie, volunteered at the local soup kitchen. Jolie started to cry and Kelly hugged her daughter and told her to not be sad about others' misfortunes.

The scene then switched to Gina and Kelly talking about their exciting Jamaica getaway. After some chitchat, however, their conversation turned to Shannon's distaste for RHOC's new blonde beauty.

"She never asks me about myself. It shouldn't take Shannon this much time to acknowledge my existence. It shouldn't take her this much time to stop being an as***le," Gina told Kelly, adding, "It is not fair that Shannon Beador gets to decide how much time it takes to be friends with me."

Meanwhile, Emily and her hubby Shane were out to dinner. After they ordered, Emily brought up her desire to have more kids."

"I know that you are not on board with having more children," Emily said.

"No more little Emily's?" she asked him. Shane responded, "I don't think it's fair that you keep pushing me."

"I always wanted more than one girl," Emily replied, to which he fired back, "I want to be six feet tall."

She was clearly stuck over what to do with her remaining embryos.

The screen then changed to Vicki Gunvalson taking boyfriend Steve Lodge, his daughter Amanda and Amanda's boyfriend, on a trip to San Diego to meet her son, Michael.

"Michael is the Vice President of my company and I am just so proud of him," Vicki said of her son.

While the three couples were enjoying the weather on a rood, Vicki said, "Isn't it so weird that none of us are married and we still love our partners?"

The O.G. from the O.C. then dropped the bomb on Steve.

"I would like to be married. I told you right out of the gate. I am not going to date you forever. There has to be an end goal. If not, I am going to carry on."

"I thought the end goal was to be happy," Steve said. "I am happy, but I will be happier with a ring on it," Vicki replied, before turning her attention to her son Michael's relationship with his longtime girlfriend, Dani.

After Vicki's son Michael said that that their pug is their kid, Vicki carried the conversation even further.

"I think that your window is closing. I know that you are 30 but by 32 you should be pregnant," Vicki told Michael's girlfriend Dani.

"Everybody will have their babies when they decide to have their babies! It is not Vicki's place to decide when they have their babies," Steve told the group, putting an end to the conversation.

Speaking of babies, the scene then switched back to Emily, who visited her doctor to talk about what to do with her nine embryos.

"I am at an emotional crossroads," Emily told her fertility doctor before asking him what her options were.

"Your options are you can continue keeping them in storage. The other option is to donate them to science. The other option is to do embryo adoption. The final option is to destroy the embryos," her doctor told her.

"You have lots of embryos and lots of options," he told her.
