I thought for sure that Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson would finally come to her senses this season and dump that prick Brooks Ayers, but no such luck. The 52-year-old reality star told Life & Style that she and her deadbeat Mississippi boyfriend are still together, despite continued protests from her 26-year-old daughter Brianna and Brianna's military husband, Ryan.
Vicki told the magazine:
I’ve got different pockets in my life. I’ve got my daughter and Brooks. He’s got his own place. So I go to his house, and we’ll watch a movie, or we go out. I’m not forcing Briana to spend time with him.
Vicki, my dear. If you have to separate your loves into pockets, isn't that a bad sign?
Clearly Vick's not one for noticing red flags. She's ignored the fact that he's a deadbeat dad who can't pay his child support; she's ignored the fact that he has a proven history of manipulating women across the nation in order to get to their money; she's ignored the fact that 20/20 profiled him as a scoundrel out to take advantage of kind women; and she's ignored the fact that every single person in her life (including the fans!) hates him.
It seems that nothing will change her mind about Brooks, which is too bad. She'll just have to learn the hard way, because rest assured, this dude is, as her daughter points out, an opportunist looking to cash in on Vicki's fame, money, low self-esteem, and loneliness.
Absolutely nobody, except Vicki, will be surprised by the magazine covers in a few months that will inevitably describe how Brooks has been stealing from her bank account, has purchased luxury items on her credit cards, has lied, cheated ... etc. It's only a matter of time.
You guys. I miss Don.
What do you think Vicki sees in Brooks?!
