Brooks Ayers

With the Real Housewives of Orange County premiering in a few short weeks the first ladies of Bravo are out in full force promoting the new season. Bravo recently confirmed new Housewife Heather Dubrow and they have also released a preview clip of the upcoming season!

Season 7 is promising lots of drama (as well as some bad eighties costumes) and despite Vicki Gunvalson‘s insistence that everyone is getting along it seems like Gretchen Rossi is having some issues with both Vicki and Heather! Oh, yeah and we finally meet the other OC child support challenged boyfriend: Brooks Ayers!

Frankly, I’m surprised Vicki and Gretchen haven’t bonded over their woes. Apparently, Vicki’s children are less than thrilled with her new beau and some of the other women are concerned about how fast the relationship is moving hot on the heals of her split from Donn Gunvalson!

Tamra Barney and her soulmate/bathtub porno partner Eddie Judge are still together but there are some hurdles as “free bitch” Tamra has difficulty settling down and apparently lets another man touch her boob! Hey, she is the hottest Housewife! And taking a cue from the totally believable and awesome Real Housewives of New York storyline, there appears to be some sort of Tamra-related pregnancy scare. Oh, please…

Finally it seems that Gretchen and Tamra are able to put the past behind them and mend fences as we see Tamra apologize to her former nemesis, but will Gretchen and Tamra’s new-found closeness interfere in her relationship with Vicki?  The brief preview clip is below!

In other RHOC news, the new girl in the gated community recently introduced herself with a “Five Things You Don’t Know…” segment in Us Weekly! Heather, a former beauty queen, is originally from NYC and majored in Theater at Syracuse University where she aspired to be a Broadway actress! When an audition sent her to LA she “never looked back.”

She has since appeared in several TV roles on shows such as Married With Children! And despite being a full-time mom, she tries to fit in acting, joking that she “still [does] a pilot every year that doesn’t get picked up.”

Heather met her husband Terry Dubrow, a plastic surgeon, on a blind date. Terry is also a Reality TV veteran that appeared on such gems as The Swan and Bridalplasty. Of her family life Heather says, “My husband and I are very down to earth people. We’re not defined by where we live or what we have. We’re just normal people and we’re incredibly grateful for what we have and each other.” We’ll see about that! A photo of Heather, Terry and their four children, below.

Finally, it seems that Vicki and Jesus Barbie, original flavor, Alexis Bellino have made up! Alexis recently posted a photo of Vicki, Brooks, herself, and her king husband, Jim Bellino on her Facebook page under the caption: “It’s gonna be a great season!” The photo is below.

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7 premiers on Bravo, February 7th at 9/8c.

The blondes are back!

The Bravo network just announced moments ago that the Real Housewives of Orange County season 7 will premiere on February 7!

Returning from last season are blondes Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino, but fret not, because Bravo is confirming the addition of brunette new housewife Heather Dubrow. Heather is described as “a former actress and now stay-at-home mother of four who is married to a prominent Newport Beach plastic surgeon.”

Heather and husband Terry Dubrow have four kids together: twins Nicholas and Maximillia, 8, Katarina, 5, and Collette, 10 months. Despite her husband’s profession, Heather boasts in her Bravo bio that she has “never had plastic surgery” other than Botox and filler. Not quite sure we’re buying that!

As for what we can expect this season, Vicki, still in the process of divorcing Donn, puts her house up for sale and introduces the wives to Brooks Ayers, her new Southern boyfriend. While finalizing her divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Barney, Tamra begins to take her relationship with boyfriend Eddie Judge to the next level.

Meanwhile, Gretchen begins a daring new chapter in her life when she takes to the stage as a singer and dancer with the Pussycat Dolls, as her relationship with Slade becomes strained due to his past issues with Vicki and Tamra. Alexis has no storyline “continues to test the boundaries of independence with her husband Jim when she gets a job as a correspondent with a local morning news show” and struggles with being a working mom.

The press release also states that longtime foes Tamra and Gretchen finally decide to bury the hatchet and begin a blossoming friendship, leaving Alexis fearing that she is losing Gretchen — a.k.a. her only ally on the show.

RHOC returns to Bravo on Tuesday, February 7 (9/8c). Below is a video interview with new housewife Heather!

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON? THOUGHTS ON THE STORYLINES?

Ryan Culberson

A day after we broke the news of Briana Wolfsmith’s elopement, more details are coming out!

For starters, did Briana inform her mother, Vicki Gunvalson of the Real Housewives of Orange County, about her plans to elope? Or did Vicki find out about her daughter’s wedding much later? Well, it appears the later might have been the case.

See Reality Tea has uncovered Briana’s marriage certificate (posted below), which shows she actually tied the knot with Marine Ryan Culberson on October 23, 2011.

This date is important as Vicki was busy announcing her daughter’s engagement on November 3! A week and a half after her daughter tied the knot in Las Vegas.

The November 3 date is, however, also significant as it’s listed as the “record date” on the marriage certificate. The “marriage date” is 10/23/2011.

So did Briana tell her mom she was engaged almost 2 weeks after tying the knot? It would appear so. Unless Vicki was simply trying to keep the Real Housewives of OC season 7 storyline under wraps.

We will find out soon. The RHOC continues to film and is scheduled to debut on Bravo very early next year. As for Vicki, she has yet to respond to our original report, simply tweeting the following yesterday: “Im thankful for my family and fans.”

Vicki and daughter Briana have had their ups and downs. Vicki even revealed on the RHOC reunion back in June that Briana “turned on” her and started being disrespectful to her after she chose to divorce husband Donn Gunvalson.

Our insider tells us the union between the recently divorced Ryan and Briana was a “quick engagement and marriage.” Below is Briana’s Vegas wedding certificate -

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? DO YOU THINK BRIANA HID HER WEDDING FROM VICKI?

Ryan Culberson

Real Housewives of Orange County star Briana Wolfsmith has officially become Briana Culberson.

While Briana’s mom Vicki Gunvalson announced her engagement November 3 via Twitter, a source confirms to Reality Tea that Briana, a 24-year-old nurse, has actually eloped and gotten married in Las Vegas!

Briana’s new husband is Ryan Culberson, a military man and a North Carolina native. As of the moment, there is no word yet on how long they’ve dated or known each other. It’s presumably less than a year as Vicki was still trying to set her daughter up on the last season of the RHOC. Our source tells us they met at a bar.

Our source also adds that Ryan, a Marine, has been previously married before and is actually recently divorced — having ended his marriage at the end of 2010.

No word yet on how Vicki feels about her daughter eloping though we will likely find out on the upcoming season of the RHOC — which is currently filming.

Congrats to Briana!

In other OC news, Vicki recently posted some new photos to her Facebook page of herself and her costars plus boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Those are below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRIANA ELOPING?


Everybody’s favorite workaholic Housewife, Vicki Gunvalson, is promoting a natural eyelash growth product she helped develop called Cilea Lash and now she is trying to convince us we need to buy it. In a new interview with radio station 97.9, Vicki talked about the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Orange County, her divorce, dating Brooks Ayers and of course, Cilea Lash!

Speaking candidly, Vicki admits that being the OG of the OC makes her “feel old” as each new cast member comes “a little younger and prettier.” Although she is happy with new Housewife on the block Heather Dubrow, who she describes as genuine and “very, very sweet,” Vicki also appreciates that at 41; Heather is “a little bit older,” instead of a “32-year-old that’s never had children.” (I wonder who that could be referring to, ahem… Gretchen Rossi!).

As for dealing with new Housewives Vicki, who describes the Housewives franchises as “like a sorority”, doesn’t hesitate to participate in a little OC Housewives Hazing! “It’s all the way they approach the seasoned cast members, which is Tamra [Barney] and I,” Vicki says of newbies joining the show. “We try to bring ‘em in with open arms and sometimes they come in with claws.”

“Sometimes you have to go ‘Really girl? Step back a little bit!’ and put them in their place and then everybody fights!” It’s nice to know Vicki and Tamra are still BFF. Apparently Heather got off on the right foot because Vicki reveals filming together is a “great experience.”

This season she says the ladies are a little older and a little wiser and there is less bickering (thank goodness!), but lots of “interesting things” happening, including a cast camping trip! “We don’t really know what our reality is from day to day. Every day is a new day,” she says of participating in a reality show.

Apparently Gretchen and Tamra are <gasp> actually getting along! “Gretchen is realizing there’s two sides to every story and I see Gretchen and Tamra trying to resolve some of their issues,” Vicki reveals.

“They are never going to be best friends, but we’re growing up and maturing on TV and nobody wants to see women fight. And if you do [fight], do so in a respectful manner. Not name calling, not hurt people,” she declares, perhaps sending Bravo a message! “I’m hopeful everyone can get along and be class acts. My goal is try to get everybody to help each other.”

When asked about last season focusing on her divorce from ex-husband, Donn Gunvalson, Vicki describes that having the end of her decades long marriage play out on camera was “obviously very, very difficult.”

“I never really wanted any of my marriage demise to be on camera,” Vicki explains, adding that she “pretended everything was fine” to the producers to avoid the drama being included in the show. Unfortunately, the production company “saw right through the film” and confronted her about the state of her relationship with Donn because otherwise her only storyline was insurance! Vicki shares that while pretending to be happy, she was actually filing for divorce and eventually confessed that her marriage was “done.”

Despite her protests, Vicki says the producers said “we have to film this” and she relented allowing it be included in the show. As for the accusations that her addiction to work contributed to her marriage falling apart, Vicki insists that’s not true. “They don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. Donn and I are very private people,” she explains. “We will never disclose what happened.”

“It takes two to get divorced. If Donn wanted to still be married to me, we would still be married.” Although, Vicki assures us that despite rumors of infidelity none took place and the split was “amicable.” “I never cheated on Donn the entire time we’ve been married – absolutely not,” she states, insisting she’s never heard “that rumor,” because she doesn’t read the tabloids or blogs anymore.

“That’s the kinda stuff that really makes you throw up. It’s like really? Everyone can just sit there and say anything about you and you have to defend yourself all day long,” Vicki scoffs of tabloid gossip.

Finally, Vicki talked about her new relationship with OC deadbeat dad 2.0 boyfriend Brooks, who she revealed via Twitter will be making an appearance on Housewives this season! As for their relationship, they are taking it slow since she is a “damaged soldier.”

“I’m a hopeless romantic and Brooks and I have a wonderful relationship, but I’m taking it slow,” she reveals. “I’m gonna be 50 this year. I deserve to be loved and he loves me, I deserve to be happy and I am happy with him, but I am also not rushing into anything.”

Refusing to answer any questions about Brooks’ arrest for not paying child support, Vicki became very defensive snapping “You know, what I thought we were talking about Cilea today? Brooks’ business is Brooks’ business;” insisting he has no troubles with the law!

“I am not on the radio to defend my boyfriend. He’s a great guy or I wouldn’t be with him. Period. I really, really don’t want to discuss Brooks’ personal stuff,” she added. “He fell behind on child support and it’s all cleared up now. We all have a past and that’s past.” And there you have it. Slade Smiley’s child support woes are free game and Brooks Ayers’ are not! #Hypocritemuch?

As for what’s next for the insurance hawker, besides planning daughter Briana Wolfsmith’s upcoming nuptials, Vicki reveals she is “slowing the train down a little bit”, but has hopes of writing a finance book about saving for retirement.

She is also undecided about whether or not a season 8 of RHOC’s in store for her just in case Bravo fires her. “From year to year I have to evaluate it. Have to take it day by day and year by year. It’s so hard to predict,” she says of returning next season. “At the end of the day I still have my job, I still have my family” which is more important to her than Housewives. As well it should be!

THOUGHTS ON VICKI’S INTERVIEWS AND HER COMMENTS ABOUT THE PRODUCERS BASICALLY INSISTING SHE FILM THE DEMISE OF HER MARRIAGE? DO YOU THINK THIS SEASON OF RHOC WILL BE BETTER? ARE YOU SURPRISED VICKI IS STILL DATING BROOKS?

Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is dealing with the end of her 17-year-marriage in a very unique way!

The 49-year-old mom of two reveals to In Touch Weekly magazine that she spent over $7,500 to get herself a divorce plastic surgery makeover! Who knew there was such a thing?

Vicki, who reveals she “spent many nights crying” after filing for divorce from Donn Gunvalson, is now at peace with her decision especially after falling for her new younger beau, Brooks Ayers.

Vicki tells the mag she now has a new lease on life. “I want to have it all!” she states. And what better way to have it all than with a full body makeover. Vicki turned to plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Pozner who performed a “Divorce Do-over” on her. “She just wanted a little pick-me-up,” says the Boca Raton, Fla. based doctor.

So what exactly did Vicki do to her body? For starters, she spent $5,700 to get Botox, lasers and fillers on her face. Dr. Pozner rejuvenated Vicki’s face with lasers, injected Botox between her brows, and added fillers to her cheeks, jawline and lips to add volume.

“It hurt, but facials didn’t work and this did,” says Vicki who struggled with painful cystic acne for years. She confesses she was “insecure” about her skin.

As for her body, which she admits has caused her many years of insecurity, Vicki who states she fluctuates between a size 6 and a size 8 confesses: “I feel like I look big compared to everyone else on the show.”

So right before taping began on the seventh season of the RHOC, Dr. Pozner slimmed Vicki’s thighs using a body sculpting technique which freezes fat cells, and treated the cellulite in her mid-section with a contour machine.

Vicki reveals she is more than pleased with the results! “Some doctors do too much and you look like a dead Barbie doll. I didn’t want to look plastic.” She adds: “There’s life after divorce. I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time!”

Does Vicki look better with her face and body overhaul? We’ll let you be the judge! More after photos of Vicki below!

Another day, another bench arrest warrant issued for Gretchen Rossi.

For the second time in two years, a judge has ordered a bench warrant for the arrest of the Real Housewives of Orange County star. And of course, it all has to do with her ex Jay Photoglou.

Gretchen and Jay continue to be locked in a nasty legal battle over claims of libel, defamation, and slander. After Gretchen failed to make a court appearance on Thursday (she was busy hosting a promotional event in Las Vegas), a judge issued the warrant for her arrest and set her bail at $2,500, reports RadarOnline.

Luckily for Gretchen, the judge gave her until September 15 to show up to court or risk being arrested. It’s likely this latest missed court appearance has to do with the $40,000 Gretchen was ordered to fork over to Jay for his legal fees earlier this year. No word yet on whether or not Gretchen has made that payment.

Perhaps viewers will get to see Gretchen’s legal drama play out on TV as filming has officially began on the 7th season of the RHOC!

We reported last week that old-heads veterans Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson had signed on, and today we can now report Peggy Tanous will also be returning. Peggy confirmed the news via her twitter page after a fan asked her if she was kicked off. She replied, “Of course not. Start filming next week!!! Thanks for your support!”

On Tuesday, Tamra then tweeted, “First day of filming tomorrow….Let the games begin.” None of the other housewives have confirmed their return, but with Peggy’s return, it’s likely Alexis Bellino might also be returning.

And finally, despite all the controversy, it appears Vicki and her beau Brooks Ayers are still going strong. In fact Vicki tweeted days ago that she had just left Brook’s home state of Mississippi. “Heading home to southern California after having a great weekend in MS. and TN. I love my “Southern people”.” tweeted Vicki.

Brooks then tweeted to Vicki: “We both are very happy and feel like we have finally got it “right”.. Have a great day!” This led some to speculate whether the couple might have gotten engaged or tied the knot, which Vicki denied. She tweeted, “Nope.. No marriage.. Just really happy!”

Brooks also assured a fan that all is well between the two. “We have an amazing relationship! I can assure you that what we have,most people want. We both are glad that we didn’t settle!” he wrote. Safe to assume Vicki’s new romance will be part of her storyline for the new season. Below is a recent photo of the two together.

UPDATE – Gretchen’s publicist released the following statement which pretty much confirms what was originally reported -

“After Photoglou’s previous attorney’s dropped him last month, Jay and his new attorney set a conference date intentionally on a day they knew Gretchen would be out of town on an appearance. Gretchen’s attorneys appeared on her behalf and the judge rescheduled the conference. A bench warrant is a standard part of the paper work. It is not an active warrant and only becomes active if one of the parties fails to appear on the new date. “

Vicki Gunvalson Boyfriend Brooks
Very negative publicity and unflattering reports of arrests for a DUI and unpaid child support in tow, Vicki Gunvalson is standing by her man.

In the current issue of UsWeekly magazine, the Real Housewives of Orange County star not only defends beau Brooks Ayers, but also denies she cheated on her estranged husband Donn Gunvalson with him. A report came out a week ago with an ex-girlfriend of Brooks stating Vicki had been involved with him since 2007. Even more puzzling was the handwritten letter Vicki sent to a judge on behalf on Brooks last August, two months before filing for divorce from Donn.

“We never had an affair,” states Vicki, 49 of her romance with Brooks, 44. It however appears Vicki took a page from the book of her BFF Tamra Barney as the UsWeekly article states she has been dating Brooks for the past 8 months. Just when did Vicki file for divorce? Exactly eight months ago in October. Did she start dating Brooks hours days after filing for divorce???

The report of the 8-month romance is even more surprising because when the reports about Brooks first came out, Vicki downplayed their relationship claiming “I’ve only just started dating this guy, we’ve had like three dates.”

Vicki also takes a page out of Gretchen Rossi’s handbook when she denies Brooks was a deadbeat dad despite his two arrests for being just that. “He fell back on payments,” she admits but says he’s paid $100,000 to his ex over a span of years. “Is that a deadbeat dad?” asks Vicki.

And during her Sunday night appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Vicki went a step further when she revealed she is in love with Brooks adding, “I knew everything. There wasn’t any secrets and lies.”

When asked about the hypocrisy of her situation, you know, being that she has called out Slade Smiley for not paying his child support once or twice, Vicki attempted to defend herself. “If the viewers saw me the last year” said Vicki. “I never talked about Slade. It’s his business and his life and I don’t want him in mine.” Well those in glass houses have no business throwing rocks.

And speaking of Slade, Gretchen tweeted a photo this week of him with his eldest son Gavin Smiley with the caption “Having lunch with Slade’s oldest son Gavin and his girlfriend Kenna! Love them! Gavin is such a sweet and good kid!” That photo is below.
