Vicki Gunvalson is still dating her on-off boyfriend Brooks Ayers.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star has defended her relationship with the man accused of cheating on her with a porn star.
Vicki’s daughter Briana in particular is against the reunion, but the TV star simply explains “I really care for this man.”
“I know my daughter worries, but she’s only met him four times and in any case, we each have our own lives to lead – we can’t lead anyone else’s life for them. Other people have their opinions but I really, really care for this man,” she explained to Mail Online.
“We are still seeing each other from time to time. He lives in a different state – but he was wrongfully abused on the show, both by other cast members and my daughter.”
Brooks has always vehemently denied the cheating allegations.
But after being secretly recorded talking about his relationship, he was forced to apologize for the comments he made including “[I’m going to] f**king beat [Vicki’s] a*s” and calling Vicki “a ‘f***ing whore.”
“They magnified the truth. I wouldn’t be with someone who didn’t treat me right, who didn’t treat me like a princess, and I don’t need to be protected. I mean, I’m 51 – I’ve got this!” Vicki declared.
“We tried breaking up and it didn’t really work for us, but I’m just dating him – we’re not married or engaged – and dating someone is how you find out about them.”
