For the past couple seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson definitely had the most toxic relationship. Everyone but her could see what a jerk Brooks Ayers was. Things were so bad, her daughter Briana Culberson couldn't tolerate being in the same room with the guy. Still, the pair were on and off for months. She says they are really through this time, but we think there is one more thing she needs to do to make sure Brooks never reappears by her side again.
Everything came to a head during the intensely emotional RHOOC reunion. Brooks himself was there, offering to bow out gracefully so that the mother and daughter could reclaim their relationship. Vicki, of course, was a heartbroken, blubbering mess.
However, any regrets about the split should have been presumably washed away after tapes surfaced of Brooks telling Briana's husband Ryan Culberson that he was going to beat Vicki up. In the recording, he is heard saying, “F*cking whore, Imma [sic] f*cking beat her ass when i see her ..."
But when asked about the tapes recently, Vicki said she hasn't listened to them and doesn't want to. "I have no desire," Vicki said. "I know who Brooks is. People get mad, get drunk, people say things they should say, and move past it." Hmm. Bad idea Vicki. It's easy for her to dismiss the reports about what he said, but if she were to actually listen to the rage and vitriol in his voice, she may have a completely different reaction.
This is supposedly a man who is in love with her. Sure, he's allowed to get angry and upset once in awhile. Every couple has spats but threatening physical violence is a whole other story. It's clear that she still has feelings for this man -- which means they are in danger of getting back together AGAIN. She may not want to listen to that heinous tape, but she should. That will finally put the nail in the coffin of their messed up romance.
Do you think Vicki should listen to the tapes?
