Vicki Gunvalson of Real Housewives of Orange County has endured a very real rollercoaster ride with her on and off boyfriend Brooks Ayers.
Businessman Brooks Ayers finally called time on his relationship with Vicki Gunvalson during Monday’s broadcast of the show’s reunion special.
The split comes after Brooks Ayers had a strained relationship with not only Vicki Gunvalson but with her fellow castmates and her daughter Briana Wolfsmith Culberson.
Brooks Ayers was confronted about numerous complaints regarding his character – including one from Briana Wolfsmith Culberson.
“The resolution, obviously, is to exit stage right out of this family because of these strong feelings against me,” Brooks Ayers told Briana Wolfsmith Culberson, who curtly replied: “Because of what you’ve done, not about what I’m feeling.”
Brooks Ayers added: “You asked me before, <<Do I love her enough to let her go?>> I do.”
“So we’re not gonna be hearing soon that you guys are back together?” Briana Wolfsmith Culberson asked Brooks Ayers.
He replied: “Not from me, not from me – and that’s the truth.”
After giving Vicki Gunvalson a kiss she sobbed uncontrollably while being comforted by the other housewives.
“I hate my life right now,” she cried.
Vicki Gunvalson said the show’s events left her “emotionally drained”, as she “was looking forward to a future with Brooks, and it looks like it’s over”.
This final split comes after shocking audio tapes were recently released where the 46-year-old businessman could be heard slurring on them.
Brooks Ayers could be heard talking about his plans to “f**king beat [Vicki Gunvalson’s] a**” the next time he sees her, while also calling the 51-year-old a “f**king w**re.”
Brooks Ayers has subsequently issued an apology for his abusive comments but they caused him a lot of damage with fans of the show.
Vicki Gunvalsona and Brooks Ayers, who allegedly met in 2011 through Vicki’s insurance business, had a rocky relationship throughout that time.
Along with rumors that Brooks Ayers was unfaithful, the couple is also being sued for allegedly conning a business partner out of $250,000.
Professional poker player Robert Williamson III has claimed Vicki Gunvalson breached contract, committed fraud, failed to live up to good faith dealings, misrepresented herself and conspired to unjustly enrich herself and Brooks Ayers with regards to a failed vodka business.
