ORANGE COUNTY (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers breakup, reunite, and split once again, RHOC viewers will learn tonight. Are Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers still together, RHOC asked at the season finale last season. Tonight, Vicki is back with boyfriend Brooks. But the real update since filming is a bit more confusing because of RHOC’s schedule, LALATE can exclusively report.
In real life, now in April 2013, Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers are no longer together. But when RHOC 2013 returns tonight, Vicki and Brooks are back together. So what happened?
As Tamra Barney recently told LALATE exclusively, the new 2013 season of RHOC began filming in roughly summer 2012. In the season finale last year, Bravo told news that the Vicki and Brooks had broke up since last season and gotten back together.
Tonight’s episode picks up from that point, LALATE can exclusively report. In summer through fall 2012, Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers were back together reunited. Tonight, Vicki turns to Brooks and says “are we dating or are we not dating? Are we together or not tougher? I cant figure this out.”
But that changed by the end of 2012. Eventually, the tensions between Vicki’s family and Brooks prompted a split that was permanent.That breakup wont be detailed in RHOC until roughly midway in the season, LALATE can report.
Vicki will later in the season turn to her daughter and say “I miss Brooks. So we are going to continue doing what we are doing.” But Briana replies “if you are going to bring him here, that is cool. I’m just not going to live here.” Ryan Culberson has big issues with Brooks. “If you act like a b–ch, you are a b–th” to which another person turns to Ryan and says “I don’t care if you pay rent. It’s Vicki’s house.”
The above photo was taken when Vicki and Brooks were back together in May 2012 after a previous split. Brooks and Vicki went to Napa Valley and posted pictures for fans including the above. “A few photos of Brooks and I from our recent weekend trip to Napa Valley” she wrote. She said the two were “having fun”.
