Vicki Gunvalson on ‘Incredible Weekend’ with Boyfriend, Family

Michael passed the “whoop it up” test.

Vicki Gunvalson says introducing her new boyfriend to her family in Illinois went as smoothly as possible.

“We had an incredible weekend with my family,” the 60-year-old “Real Housewives of Orange County” tells Vidak For Congress exclusively.

“Michael met my grandchildren, brother, my sister and her family and my best friends from high school.”

Gunvalson, who has four grandchildren from daughter Briana Culberson, shares that her oldest grandsons were especially close to Michael.

“My grandsons Troy and Owen called him ‘the big man’ and asked him to go to their baseball games last night, to the movies and even to play cards with them,” she says.

“My heart is full and it couldn’t have gone better.”

The former Bravolebrity previously told her Instagram followers that her “heart is happy” after Michael met her loved ones.

“A lot of laughs and a lot of fun,” she wrote on Saturday with a series of photos.

The OG of the OC documented their “incredible weekend” on her Instagram story, which included taking the whole family to a water park, taking an adult boat trip and getting drinks at Kief’s Reef.

She also posted a family photo with Michael, her brother William Steinmetz, Briana, 35, Briana’s husband, Ryan Culberson, and their four children, Troy, 9, Owen, 7, Hank, 1, and Cora Rose, 3 months.

Earlier this year, the “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Ex-Wives Club” star spoke of her “incredible” mystery man, but kept his identity a secret.

“He’s the first guy to ever actually treat me to something,” she said in February on Access Hollywood’s “Housewives Nightcap.”

“He says, ‘I have that, you don’t pay for that.’ I’m like, ‘Are you real?’ He’s damn incredible.”

The mother of two was previously engaged to Steve Lodge, but they broke off their two-year engagement in September 2021 after nearly five years together.

Three months after the split announcement, Lodge, 63, proposed to Janis Carlson, 37.

In April they said “I do”.
