On last night’s season premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County, it was revealed that Vicki Gunvalson has been dating a new guy, even though her divorce has yet to be finalized (note: she said that Donn has a new girlfriend as well). So who is Brooks Ayers who has apparently swept the Coto de Caza insurance mogul off her feet? Read on for the gritty details, including unpaid child support and DUI…and why Vicki is still calling him a Southern gentleman!
Vicki’s new beau, Brooks Ayers, has taken on Slade’s usual nickname of a “deadbeat dad” after multiple arrests for DUI and unpaid child support. Vicki called it all circumstantial, once saying to RumorFix, ”He fell on hard times.”
She speaks quite highly of him, actually. “He’s a Southern Gentleman from Mississippi,” because he says “ma’am” and opens doors for her. “He’s from the poorest state in the country and I’m from the richest county—we’re blending it together and it’s interesting.” Will audiences agree?
“This season, I’m in a much better place. I’m becoming the person I feel like I was always meant to be,” she said to the Chicago Sun Times. “I’m totally, madly in love with him.”
What do you think of Brooks Ayers so far? Is she being hypocritical by dating a deadbeat dad?
