Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has been pressuring her boyfriend of two years, Steve Lodge, to pop the question. However, Lodge has been dragging his feet and has not yet gotten down on one knee. But, according to a new report, he wasted no time at all when it came to proposing to his last girlfriend.
Lodge filed for divorce from his second wife, Tonya Compton, in March 2013. But, it took the former couple a long time to settle the split, and six months after the filing Lodge requested bifurcation of status. Bifurcation is basically a request to change your legal status to single before settling other divorce issues, like spousal support and property division.

In Compton’s December 2013 response to Lodge’s requested bifurcation, she said that Lodge had already proposed to another woman and moved her and her daughter into his home.
“His fiancée and her daughter are benefiting from this delay by residing in our marital home rent free per his declaration,” Compton said.
Lodge and Compton ended up reaching a settlement, and the marriage was terminated in May 2014.
But, according to Radar Online, the woman Compton was referring to in her bifurcation response never married Lodge, and he started dating Gunvalson in 2016.
If Lodge ever does propose to Gunvalson, that would make her fiancée number five. His first wife was named Sherrie, and the former couple shares two children. Lodge also married a woman named Karla Frazee after he divorced Compton, but they split in December 2015. Lodge and Frazee also share two children.
On a recent episode of RHOC, Gunvalson pressured Lodge to propose. She said that she would like to be married, and she told him “right out of the gate” that there has to be an end goal. And, if there isn’t, she would carry on.

So, what does the future hold for Gunvalson and Lodge? Her co-star Gina Kirschenheiter weighed in on Gunvalson’s relationship during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Cohen asked Kirschenheiter if she thought Gunvalson and Lodge would last, and the RHOC newbie said that Gunvalson commits to every relationship she is in, but then something ends up happening along the way. Kirschenheiter added that she believes Vicki Gunvalson is fully committed to Steve Lodge, but we will have to wait and see what happens.
