It's been nearly a year since Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers broke up. But plenty of controversy followed their split last August, as her Real Housewives of Orange County crew questioned his cancer diagnosis and battled throughout last season. That drama definitely put a strain on her friendships, and as we've seen in Season 11, which debuted earlier this month, Vicki has been trying to repair those fractured relationships. And while Vicki is currently dating someone new, Tamra Judge has a theory that the world hasn't seen the last of Vicki and Brooks.
"I can only speculate, but I do think they’re still talking, and I think that it’s a matter of time before they get back together. I do," she shared on Watch What Happens Live on Monday.
Vicki and Brooks, who she broke up with in August 2015, after four years of dating.
Vicki began dating Steve Chavez Lodge earlier this spring, and the twosome definitely seem serious. But, that doesn't mean Brooks and Vicki couldn't still reconcile, according to Tamra. "Yeah, I did meet [Steve], and for the record I never touched his crotch. She said that," Tamra said on WWHL, referring to an anecdote that Vicki told on the show earlier this month (clip below). "He seems like a really nice guy. But Vicki doesn’t like the nice guy. She likes the bad boy."
Below, Vicki opens up about her new love.
