Vicki Gunvalson has been making decisions with her empty love tank. And unfortunately her mid-life crisis love tank is leading her to Brooks Ayers

Despite everyone in her life seriously questioning her decisions in the romance department leading to family and friends ostracizing her and beau Brooks (is he not sending them enough affirming Hallmark cards?) the Real Housewives of Orange County star insists she has no regrets when it comes to the choices she's made! 

"I can't tell you how difficult this has been having my daughter and myself continue to not see eye-to-eye on some very important issues," Vicki admits in her Bravo blog. 


"The fact that she is moving away to OK makes me really sad because other than my 'relationship' issue, we really are best friends with very little conflict. I am a firm believer that in time, things will always work itself out –- I just don't know why it's taking so long," Vicki wonders. 

Furthermore, Vicki is frustrated by Tamra Barney's objections to Brooks. I mean who is Tamra to judge with taste like hers?! "I was bugged that Tamra said that she doesn't want me to wake up in seven to eight years and regret my decisions I am making now in my life. What I have to say to her is that… I won't." 

"I love every day that I am making, as no decision that I have made is permanent, and I'm enjoying my life and choosing to do things MY WAY now. For 28 years I have focused on being a mother and wife and business woman. It seems now that my kids are making their choices without any concern of what I feel…so I guess it's my time to do the same."

Vicki says counseling has helped her come to terms with her decisions, however. "Going to counseling for me has really helped me be able to make choices that I WANT and not to be influenced by others."

"Life is a journey… live each day as if it's your last and enjoy the ride," Vicki advises. "I have no regrets on anything I am doing. I'm having a blast and choose to think positive and hope and pray those who say they 'care about me' will be happy for whatever decision I decide to make."

Vicki also reveals that she really likes new gal Shannon Beador. "I was so pleasantly surprised at myself that I didn't feel the urge to haze her," Vicki, aged 50+ gushes. "Maybe because she was close in age with me, or the fact that we were both Aries and we both speak our minds."

Or maybe it's that Shannon's life and marriage are so toxicVicki just didn't want to kick a gal while she was down?

Tonight the ladies of Orange County continue to explore tenuous relationships as Tamra and Heather Dubrow's friendship faces a serious twist!
