Rumors abound about Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson and her on-again, off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers, who no one seems to like including Vicki’s daughter, Briana. Before moving to Oklahoma with her family, Briana was living with her mother and she forbade Brooks from coming to the house. Now with Briana miles away, Vicki has rekindled the romance with Brooks who she says “can date anyone he wants to. I am not married to Brooks nor engaged – nor are we living together.”
If you want to rub Vicki the wrong way, bring up the lawsuit she’s involved in with Brooks and her former business partner Robert Williamson III, a professional poker player in Las Vegas. Vicki–who’s known to slam shots of vodka on the Real Housewives of Orange County–and Robert launched a vodka line called Vicki’s Vodka in 2013. No one made money from it. Somehow Brooks got involved (Vicki gave him a few of her points), accusations of fraud ensued and then Vicki pulled the plug. Vicki believes the recent rumors of Ayers cheating (there’s video of Ayers confessing to cheating and an instance of physical abuse with Vicki) are related to her impending Vicki’s Vodka trial. No word yet if Bravo will work the trial into the show.
