Robyn Dixon and ex-husband Juan Dixon have a complicated relationship — to say the least. While they are divorced, they do live together to better co-parent their children. In a recent interview, the RHOP mom said she still hasn't put a title on their relationship yet but that they are "moving toward a better place."

"We haven't definitively said, 'You're my boyfriend' ... that's just weird!" Robyn shared with The Daily Dish podcast. "I think we kind of are moving in that direction where we're ready to just say, you know what, let's try to focus on each other and, you know, move forward. So we'll see."

Robyn said that she didn't like how he came off last season, which she said was due to the fact that he wasn't comfortable around cameras. (She previously revealed "it took a lot of convincing" to get him to attend the Season 2 reunion.) "I hated Season 2 and how people perceived him because I feel like when the cameras were around, he just wasn't in the mood to film. And it came through and that was the perception that people had of him. So I really love that he kind of watched himself back from Season 2 and he was like, 'Oh yeah, OK, I see, I get it. Like, let me act like myself ... rather than being annoyed with the cameras ... It took him a while to grasp that and to get comfortable with that."

Robyn said Juan is much more open to being filmed this season and she's happy fans get to see his true self. "He's an amazing person; he's grown a lot and I love that the world can see that in him as well ... I love that people are seeing a different side of him ... He realizes that his little attitude, on camera, it's magnified. And so he didn't want that to be the story of our relationship because that's not what it was like even and even during Season 2, we weren't in a bad place, it just looked that way."

And just because Juan hasn't always been a fan of being around cameras, it doesn't mean he won't watch that show.

"It's funny, he'll say he doesn't watch it and then if it's on, he'll sit and watch it. And I'm like trying to like change the channel because he comes back to me and he's like, 'I told you not to say anything to Karen!'" Robyn laughed, revealing that Juan weighs in after the fact once he's seen the drama on TV. "One of the episodes when we were in Nemacolin ... and Karen calls me a 'dizzy bitch' and it goes to commercial ... and he's like, 'I hope you lean into her! OK. Like I'm confused. What do you want me to do?' 

Robyn shared more about Juan's reactions from watching the show; check that out and more in the podcast episode above. And don't forget to watch RHOP every Sunday at 8/7c. Check out a preview of Sunday's episode, below.
