Vicki Gunvalson is single and ready to mingle after her ex-fiancé Steve Lodge dumped her and got engaged to teacher Janis Carlson.
And now it looks like the former Real Housewives of Orange County star has her sights set on Teddi Mellencamp’s famous rock star father John Mellencamp.
The 59-year-old showed her interest in the Jack & Diane singer during an appearance on Teddi and Tamra Judge’s hit podcast, Two T’s in a Pod.

While discussing her dating life with Teddi, Vicki blurted out: ‘By the way, is your dad single?’
Clearly shocked at the thought of her father hooking up with a Real Housewife, Teddi responded: ‘One, you do NOT wanna date my dad!’
Vicki then said that she wouldn’t date anybody over 63, seemingly unaware that John is currently fighting off Father Time at age 70.
‘He’s not tall enough for you,’ Teddi continued. ‘I heard that you needed a six foot requirement.’

Vicki then said she’d prefer a man that was 6’1, before Tamra said that the rocker wasn’t ‘tall enough’ for her to date.
‘I kinda feel like you’re not young enough for him,’ Tamra added.
Ignoring the remark, Vicki then launched into her list of must-haves in a man.
‘They must love Jesus, age 55 to 63,’ she said. ‘I want to be treated like a lady, I want a family man.

‘I want them to be self sufficient, someone I can laugh with, someone who will adore me, likes to travel, new experiences, someone to cook with me and drink wine or tequila with me, but not be an alcoholic – I can’t do the drugs and alcohol thing,’ she continued.
‘Attracted to me, he has to be confident but not egotistical. He has to be loyal and committed, no lies.’
She continued to list a dozen or so more requirements, before finally saying that her dream man must ‘like to have sex with me.’

Later in the interview, she said, ‘I love sex so bad,’ while reminiscing about her ex-husband Donn Gunvalson.
John was last linked to realtor Natasha Barrett, 46, but Page Six reported in August that they had split.
Meanwhile, Vicki and former fiancé Steve Lodge split in September, 2021.

Former police officer Steve, who ran for governor of California in the recent Gavin Newsom recall election, popped the question to Orange County teacher Janis Carlson before Christmas.
Lodge, 63, dated Vicki for five years before officially ending their engagement in September, although he told PEOPLE they called it quits on their relationship the year before.
‘I really don’t want to give him any more publicity,’ Vicki said as she responded to the betrothal in a statement obtained by Page Six. ‘He’s a fame whore.’

‘I did ask Janis on December 20th if she would become Mrs. Steve Chavez Lodge, and she happily agreed,’ Lodge said in a statement to People. ‘We will be married in April 2022.’
He added: ‘We are both very excited, incredibly happy, totally in love and look forward to our life together.’
Janis is a third grade school teacher and only recently went Instagram official with Steve on Christmas Day.
