LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Are Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers still together, back dating? Vicki and Brooks are still together when the new RHOC 2014 season kicks off. But LALATE can report exclusively that the pair are far more connected now than in 2013, at least in Federal Court.
When LALATE last reported on the pair back in 2013, there was an ongoing legal dispute between a former beverage partner on the one hand, and Vicki, Brooks, and Vicki’s company on the other hand. Now what appeared to be separate fronts have been united. And Vicki and Brooks are moving full force ahead in their defense with a big win just days ago.
Back in 2013, Vicki, Brooks, and Vicki’s (non insurance) company was sued by a former beverage partner. As reported exclusively back then on LALATE, Brooks initially represented himself in federal court. Vicki settled with the former partner.
But as that settlement unraveled, the former partner then re-sued Vicki. Meantime, as LALATE exclusively reported, Brooks allegedly missed a deadline, and a default judgment was entered against him and Vicki’s company.
The case which started in Las Vegas, however, recently took a major turn in favor of the RHOC stars. First, the big change is that Vicki, Vicki’s company and Brooks are now being represented in Las Vegas by the same counsel. Second, just days ago, the two RHOC stars won a motion to set aside the default judgment of last year. The court has just issued a set aside of the default against Cougar Juice Vodka, LLC, Woo Hoo Productions, LLC (Vicki’s company), and David Brooks Ayers.
As previously reported exclusively on LALATWE, Vicki and Brooks are not the only RH stars currently in federal civil court. Heather Thomson and Sonja Morgan (RHONY) have pending matters with Thompson’s matter heading potentially to trial in the coming days and Sonja’s matter pending.
