LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Vicki Gunvalson and boyfriend Brooks are still together, still dating in 2012, and stronger than ever, despite erroneous news reports this week about a breakup looming. Vicki Gunvalson and boyfriend Brooks Ayers have become Bravo’s RHOC equivalent of Kim Richards and Ken Blumenfeld. Through editing and scenes this season, Bravo has pushed viewers to question if Brooks Ayers is wrong for Vicki, much like how it did for Blumenfeld for Richards, and if Brooks has erroneous motivations in dating Vicki. But unlike Blumenfeld with Richards, Ayers and Gunvalson are still together. Despite what fans see on screen in scenes taped last year in 2011 by Bravo, Vicki Gunvalson and boyfriend Brooks are not only still together and dating in 2012 but getting even closer.
A new erroneous news report published this week in Radar claimed Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers are close to a breakup. The false report read “Brooks is totally at the point of dumping Vicki”. The source hurls insults at Brooks, claiming that “he loves being in the spotlight and really wants more fame for himself, and let’s face it, he’s not going to get that if he splits up with her right now.”
The report is just not true, apparent to anyone who regularly reads Vicki’s Facebook page. Before the current season of RHOC, Vicki first revealed on Facebook that Briana was married, that Briana and Ryan were on vacation with Vicki, that she and the couple were very much getting along now with Brooks. The current season of RHOC currently features scenes taped in fall 2011. Since that time, the entire family has gotten closer, Vicki has told fans and news on Facebook for months.
Moreover, claims that now, suddenly this week, Brooks is considering “dumping Vicki” is also not true, according to Vicki and Brooks’ own comments on Facebook and other social media this week.
This month, Brooks and Vicki went to Napa Valley and posted pictures for fans. “A few photos of Brooks and I from our recent weekend trip to Napa Valley” she wrote. She said the two were “having fun”.
Days ago, she affectionately called Brooks her “baby”. “Get to know my baby Brooks, he did a live Spreecast yesterday” she told fans.
She then went to the Kentucky Derby with Brooks. “I am ready for the Derby! Are you? See you tomorrow at our Derby Poker Championship in Louisville for Blessings in a Backpack!” Vicki shared a video from that parade; on it, the person recording the video sounds to be Brooks. And recently the two shared a Garth Brooks song together to fans on Facebook. Bravo reexamines their relationship with a marathon of RHOC episodes today.
