Vicki Gunvalson looked completely in her element as she whooped it up with Tamra Judge on a girls’ night out at Craig’s in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening.

The 59-year-old former Real Housewives of Orange County matriarch caught up with Patti Stanger and ex Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor outside the trendy eatery on Melrose Avenue.

Vicki rocked a short and sweet yellow dress with a black chain print that featured billowing sleeves and a plunging neckline.

The newly-single CEO of Coto Insurance showed off her toned and tanned legs, and added inches to her statuesque frame with a pair of black leather boots to match her purse.

Gunvalson, who has two children and three grandchildren with another on the way, swiped on a vibrant shade of red lipstick and let her platinum blonde hair rest across her shoulders.

She confirmed her split from fiance Steve Lodge in September and weeks later revealed that the retired homicide detective allegedly cheated on her.

‘He used me, he lied to me, he’s been dating a 36 year old and is not what he portrays himself to be,’ she wrote online when a fan questioned what really went wrong. ‘No Christian man would do what he’s done.’ 

Lodge, 63, was a gubernatorial hopeful who ran against Gavin Newsom in the California recall election, and though she had publicly supported him Vicki has now accused him of using her platform to gain supporters. 

Providing more details about his affair Vicki wrote: ‘While I was out of town working on a biz trip he took her to my condo in Mexico! He’s been flaunting around my town in OC making out in public places it’s disgusting.’ 

Tamara looked equally as stunning wearing a pair of black leather leggings with a black long-sleeved blouse.

Judge, 54, who stepped away from the show after season 14, added a bold pop of color with metallic platform heels and wore her golden blonde hair in loose curls. 

Patti, who served as The Millionaire Matchmaker for years before ending its run on Bravo in 2020, rocked a chocolate brown silk dress with leopard print boots.

Jax — who’s real name is Jason Michael Cauchi — sported his favorite plaid shirt and dark jeans combo with a pair of Nike’s. 

He announced he was leaving VPR last year with wife Brittany Cartwright in matching posts highlighting a few of their favorite moments from the show which detailed many of their highs and lows throughout their relationship.

During an Instagram live in October, the former self-proclaimed ‘No. 1 guy of the group’ appeared to be waiting to resume his role on the show amid the COVID-19 pandemic when he answered: ‘Vanderpump Rules is supposed to go back to filming. In fact, we are supposed to go back to filming this month. I think – that’s the last I heard.’

While Brittany and Jax released his-and-hers statements about leaving the popular Bravo program in December, Variety reported they were fired following the fall out from racial accusations waged by Jax’s former love interest, Faith Stowers, against co-stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, who were also fired from the show.
