LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Vicki Gunvalson & Brooks Ayers dating relationship has survived criticisms and several seasons of RHOC. And while Vicki and Brooks have appeared on camera for several seasons, she often avoids dishing a lot of details about her status with Brooks on her BravoTV.com blog. The disconnect – filming with Brooks but then not blogging much about Brooks – changed this week. Vicki now tells why she and Brooks are still together and dating 2014. Vicki says it’s because Brooks has corrected his issues.
Vicki tells news that Tamra hurt her this season. “That hurt me the most is that if she was truly a friend of mine, she would have kept her mouth shut about some things that happened early on our relationship, and allowed my friends a chance to meet him and formulate their own opinion.” Tamra says she does not like Brooks. But now Vicki admits that Brooks has made changes.
Gunvalson indicates this week that “Brooks is far from perfect. Yes, he has messed up — but one of the most amazing things about him is he recognized it, gotten help for it, and has asked for complete forgiveness from me.” Vicki says you must forgive and move on. “We have all done things in our life that we regret and wish we could take back, and if people didn’t learn how to forgive it would be a different world. Interestingly enough, she has asked people to forgive her — so I have asked her for the same respect to us that she wants for herself. Let’s see how things go with us moving forward.”
It also helps that Brooks has a new ally as well: Shannon Beador. “It was really great getting to know Shannon this year and despite all the drama in her life, it was good to spend time with her one-on-one in Bali,” Vicki states. “I think Shannon is a great person, she knows how to have fun, makes her family her top priority, and does whatever she can to make the necessary changes to keep her marriage intact. I’m proud of her.”
