Dang, don't mess with a grifter's game! Brooks Ayers had a pretty sweet gig as the affirmation swilling boyfriend of sugarmama Vicki Gunvalson.
Unfortunately everyone saw Brooks' true colors but the Real Housewives of Orange County star who finally wised up (after he reportedly caused her to be sued) and dumped Brooks! Now it seems horrific details of their increasingly volatile and frightening relationship will be aired during the third installment of the RHOC reunion where Brooks will make an appearance!
Vicki and Brooks' relationship seemed increasingly sketchy this season as he was pressuring her with ultimatums and odd emotional manipulations. Vicki often seemed desperate around Brooks, who last season was bending over backwards to flatter and woo her.
It appears that all isn't well in Vodkaville, and Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson could be back on the receiving end of a law suit claiming fraud and breach of contract. The case, which was previously dismissed, is reportedly about to be re-filed by Vicki's former partner in Vodkas by Vicki, Robert Williamson, III. In it, major allegations are waged against the reality star and her off-again-on-again (off-again) beau Brooks Ayers.
Of course, it doesn't help matters that the relationship status between Vicki and Broke Brooks has gone from lukewarm to non-existent to down right contentious, at least those are the rumors! If this is the end of Vicki's vodkas, however are we going to get to taste Slade's bacon variety?
While Vicki and Brooks' relationship appears to be as on-and-off as a light switch, Lauri is Waring wary that the couple's recent break-up may not be what it seems. She is speculating that the pair is using the story of a turbulent love affair to appease family and friends when they are actually quite happy together behind closed doors.
Say what? A housewife manipulating her relationship status to stay in the spotlight? Unheard of!
I'm sure you've heard that for a hot minute Vicki Gunvalson's business partner, Robert Williamson III, was suing her alleging that she attempted to defraud him of partial ownership of Vicki's Vodka.
It turned out the Real Housewives of Orange County star "gifted" Brooks Ayers 16.67% of her stake of the company and then Brooks proceeded to re-sell that percentage to Robert for $50,000 right out from under Vicki's surgically altered nose!
Long story short, Vicki and Robert worked out their issue, he appeared on last week's episode of RHOC (convenient timing, no?) and dropped the suit against Vicki. But he is still suing Brooks! For what, I don't know? Maybe Brooks can sell him a pair of slightly used veneers. Or some ocean front property in Mississippi.
Brooks is responding to Robert's allegations and finding that Hallmark cards and petty threats don't always make the bad guys go away, but he wants the suit dismissed anyway. He also admits that sure he sold his shares, but it was to help his child Your Honor!
In her Bravo blog, Lydia discusses returning from the Great White North to a sense of normalcy. She writes, "Coming off of the girls trip to Canada, it was good to get back to our normal routines. This episode really showed all of our personal lives rather then our relationships with one another. . .and I kind of liked that." You know, of all these women, I think Lydia is the only one who truly does enjoy being normal and drama-free!
A few weeks agoBrooks Ayers tried to seek some attention and con Vicki Gunvalson back into loving him by spilling deets of their break-up on twitter. Vicki never actually confirmed or denied the relationship ending… until now!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star admits that her "love tank is empty" once again! “I‘m single now," Vickireveals to RadarOnline. "We have decided to remain friends but we have decided to move on and date other people.”
Perhaps Vicki's decision to end things with Brooks came after her business partner planned to sue her over one of Brooks' grifting schemes! “We came to the realization that it was harder to stay together than it was to be apart,” VIcki says of their relationship ending.
Last month Vicki Gunvalson was being sued for fraud by her business partner for Vicki's Vodka. According to the suit filed by Robert Williamson III. He claimed Vicki gifted 16% of the company to Brooks Ayers, who then sold that percentage back to him all while Vicki was claiming she and Robert were still 50-50 partners in the business.
Robert also alleged that Vicki was refusing to promote the company according to their agreement and was not living up to contractual obligations. Vicki denied all the accusations, called the suit frivolous, and threatened to counter sue. And then she dumped Brooks.
Having been on the show since the franchise's inception, we've seen Vicki go through many phases (and faces this season!) with her marriage, her kids, and her co-stars. In all that time, she has ALWAYS had something to say…and she usually gets the last word!
