While the couple has been engaged for nearly two years, the former “Real Housewives of Orange County” cast member recently said that when it comes to her plans to say “I do” with her fiancé, she is enjoying their private life together and refusing to rush to the altar.
During an interview with Us Weekly last month, Vicki confirmed she and Steve, a retired cop, are “not wedding planning at all.”

“We’re not in that place of wedding planning,” Vicki explained. “It’s my third marriage, Steve’s fourth, so we’re not going to do wedding [stuff]. But right now, we’re pausing everything. There’s no need to.”
“He’s got his money, I’ve got my money — we don’t need to get married. So, we’ll see what happens. There’s no rush,” she continued.
For now, Vicki and Steve are enjoying time together at the Puerto Vallarta condo she purchased last year.
“It’s beautiful, I love it. I can work from here — it’s good,” she shared.

Vicki and Steve began their relationship in 2016 after meeting one another at a charity event. Three years later, Steve proposed.
Although the former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star had initially planned to get married to Steve in April of last year, the coronavirus pandemic forced them to cancel their wedding cruise and ultimately, Vicki had a change of heart in regard to the timing of their nuptials.
Still, despite rumors of a potential split, Vicki has insisted that all is well between her and Steve.

“[We] live together and live a very private romantic life,” Vicki told Us Weekly in October of last year after breakup rumors swirled.
As fans of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” may have seen, split reports hit the web at the end of last year after someone on social media noticed that the couple wasn’t following one another.
“We don’t follow each other on social media and haven’t for a long time, and we don’t post photos of each other — what’s the point? This is a complete joke and not worth even commenting, but I did,” Vicki explained.
Vicki Gunvalson Has A New Podcast
In addition to enjoying her life with Steve, Vicki is also focusing on her new “Reality With Vicki” podcast.
“I want to kind of go into what happens if there’s a divorce, what happens if there’s a job loss — you know, setting people up for the unknown,” she said of the project. “I always say, ‘Plan for the unplanned.’ So, I’m going to get into the nitty-gritty of insurance, what types of insurance people should have and really just do more of an authentic podcast. I listen to these podcasts, and I’m like, ‘What did I learn?’ So, I want to be a mentor and a teacher for what to do and what not to do.”
