Season Seven of the Real Housewives of Orange County was a pretty difficult season for original OC housewife Vicki Gunvalson. Not only did she have to deal with her daughter Briana eloping and her pregnancy, she also fought with best friend and business partner Tamra Barney which culminated in an explosive reunion. But the biggest problem fans and even family members had with Vicki was her beau, Brooks Ayers, and while they had allegedly parted ways, they seem to have gotten back together.
“In Deer Valley!” Terry Dubrow tweeted yesterday along with a photo of himself, his wife Heather, Vicki, and Brooks. The picture left fans everywhere wondering what the current status of Vicki and Brooks’ fiery relationship — are they really back together?
Vicki has been adamant that Brooks is not an opportunist, as many, including daughter Briana Culberson, suggested and that she was happy, but it didn’t stop the couple from ‘taking a break’ in September. When Vicki was asked if she was still dating Brook during an interview in December, her response was just a sharp “No” which had some breathing a sigh of relief.
“She tells me they have broken up. I don’t know that I honestly believe her,” Tamra said when asked about the split on her podcast Tamra Talks in November, continuing that “I think that so many people dislike him, including her own family, kids, that she’s acting like they’re not together.”
And from this photo, some of us may be thinking the exact same.
Real Housewives of Orange County season 8 is set to premier on Bravo in the Spring.
